Double-A Portland Sea Dogs

Final Score: Trenton Thunder 2, Sea Dogs 1

Notable Pitchers:

Simon Mercedes (2 IP, H, 0 R, BB, 2 K)

  • Mercedes’ transition to a relief role hasn’t gone particularly smoothly as he has a 4.38 ERA and uninspiring peripherals in 61.2 innings this year. However, Mercedes still has promise as a hard-throwing reliever and it’s worth noting that his stuff could play up even more if used in shorter stints as Mercedes has routinely thrown multiple innings this year (including last night). Soon the Red Sox should mold him into a one-inning guy to see what they have.

Notable Position Players:

Carlos Asuaje (0-3, BB, K)

Tzu-Wei Lin (0-4)

Manuel Margot (0-4, 2 K)

Sam Travis (1-3, BB)
