Double-A Portland Sea Dogs

Final Score: Sea Dogs 5, Trenton Thunder 4

Notable Pitchers:

Simon Mercedes (2.2 IP, H, R, 2 BB, 2 K)

Notable Position Players:

Carlos Asuaje (1-3, 2B, 2 BB)

Tzu-Wei Lin (0-4, K)

Manuel Margot (2-5, SB, K)

  • Margot hasn’t exactly excelled since his promotion to Portland, but he’s still held his own in his first taste of the upper minors, slashing .277/.340/.372 with 8 stolen bases thus far. Still just 20 years old, Margot has flown up prospect lists this season and now ranks in the top 20 of some mid-season rankings. It’s hard to see where he fits into Boston’s future plans, but as such a talented player, the Red Sox will have to make room.

Henry Ramos (1-4, 2 K)

Sam Travis (2-5, 2B, K)
