Jake Cosart should be on his way up to Salem soon, considering his eye-popping numbers in Greenville. When you have struck out 54 batters in 39.1 innings, allowing just 24 hits (.179 BAA), you should ready for it to happen. Perhaps the concern is the 20 walks he has issued over those 39.1 innings. In his last appearance on June 30, he struck out six over three perfect innings, needing just 41 pitches to get the job done. The right hander should be on your radar of important Red Sox prospects at this point.
Kyri Washington is a name that should also be one Red Sox fans know. His .293/.326/.577 batting line is one that grabs your attention. He also has ten steals to go along with his 15 doubles, two triples and 12 homers on the season. The 2015 23rd rounder out of Longwood University posted just a .722 OPS last season, but has obviously matured into an offensive force. The leftfielder is batting cleanup for the Drive. His 62 strikeouts compared to 11 walks in 208 at-bats is a concern, but he has also driven in 53 runs in 54 games.
Michael Chavis has come down to Earth since coming back from a thumb injury that kept him out from late April to early June. He had a homer in his last start, but before that he had five hitless games, taking an 0 for 19 collar over that time. As a first rounder (2014) he will certainly get time to develop. For the year he has a .287/.359/.453 batting line with ten extra base hits over 119 at-bats.
