High-A Salem Red Sox

Final Score: Red Sox 5, Lynchburg Hillcats 3

Notable Pitchers:

Kevin McAvoy (6 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 3 K)

Chandler Shepherd (2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 K)

  • Shepherd is an intriguing arm as a potential third or fourth round pick out of Kentucky who slipped to the Red Sox in the 14th round after a forearm injury. Now 22 years old, he’s thriving in the lower minors and now has a respectable 4.09 ERA with 7.1 K/9 and a stingy 1.4 BB/9 in 33 innings up in Salem.

Notable Position Players:

Mauricio Dubon (2-5, 2B, K)
