Williams Jerez struggled this week in two appearances. The 40-man roster pitcher gave up two hits and a run in a third of an inning in his first appearance. In his second appearance, he was touched for six hits and a walk over 2.1 innings while throwing 36 pitches. Jerez struck out three in that second appearance, allowing two earned runs. He has a 4.19 ERA over 19.1 innings, allowing 25 hits and walking nine, while striking out 15.
Nate Freiman was three-for-eight with three RBI in his debut with the Red Sox organization. The six foot, eight inch former major leaguer may not fit the strict definition of a prospect at the age of 29, but if the Red Sox need a guy in a pinch due to an injury, Freiman could be an option. He did strike out four times, which might be a symptom of being out of the minors for a few weeks.
Teddy Stankewicz bounced back from an eight earned run start on May 3, to twirl six innings on May 9, allowing two runs on six hits, hitting two batters, walking one and striking out four. The 2013 second rounder has a 3.48 ERA in 33.2 innings this season, allowing 29 hits and seven walks for a 1.07 WHIP
