Red Sox farm update: July 19th

1 of 5

Sep 24, 2014; Boston, MA, USA; Boston Red Sox starting pitcher

Edwin Escobar

(71) delivers against the Tampa Bay Rays during the ninth inning of Boston

Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox

Final Score: Durham Bulls 3, PawSox 0

Notable Pitchers:

Edwin Escobar (3 IP, 2 H, R)

  • Yesterday’s performance is a big step forward for Escobar, who has struggled mightily this season. Once a highly-touted pitching prospect for the Giants, Escobar came to the Red Sox in the Jake Peavy trade last June and the Red Sox have converted him to relief since. He has been awful this season, still sporting a 9.69 ERA, but he’ll be a useful arm if the Red Sox can make him into a viable relief option.
