High-A Salem Red Sox

Final Score: Wilmington Blue Rocks 6, Red Sox 5

Notable Pitchers:

Daniel McGrath (3.2 IP, 9 H, 6 R, BB, 3 K)

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

Notable Position Players:

Wendell Rijo (1-4, 2B)

  • Rijo hasn’t adapted well to High-A after a promising season a year ago in Greenville. He’s hitting only .245/.303/.379, though he has hit 21 doubles, a far cry from his success in the lower levels of the minors. Still, he’s 19 years old and has plenty of time to get back on track; after all, he’ll likely be in Portland as a 20-year old.
