Adding the Short Season Lowell Spinners to the Red Sox Prospect Watch, let’s jump right in with what is happening in Pawtucket
Justin Haley was promoted from Portland, where he compiled a 2.20 ERA in 61.1 innings, to Pawtucket on June 17. In his first start he excelled with one run allowed over eight innings. His second start this week wasn’t so good. He was touched for six runs on just four hits and three walks and one home run allowed.
William Cuevas has continued his string of solid starts. He allowed two earned runs on six hits with three walks and three strikeouts this week. Perhaps he should have been considered for the start that Roenis Elias recently made in which he was knocked around. Cuevas has a 3.30 ERA over 73.2 innings this season.
Pat Light continues to put up zeroes at Pawtucket. Over his last five appearances, Light has allowed just one hit over five innings, walking one batter and striking out eight. In 24.1 innings, he has allowed just 14 hits (.163 batting average against) with 12 walks and 29 strikeouts on the season. He has to be on the team’s radar for another big league call-up if the need arises.
