Garrett Benge has now appeared in 25 games for the Greenville Drive this year. He’s slashing .333/.495/.467 in that time. The third baseman has four doubles and two home runs, to go along with nine RBI and 15 runs scored (as well as one steal). What might be the most impressive stat are the 24 walks he’s drawn compared to just 14 strikeouts.
Benge is absolutely dominating this season, and as the third baseman at the levels above him move up, he could see a change of scenery as well.
Marino Campana is hitting .246 with 38 extra-base hits and 59 RBI. The 20-year-old is still rarely talked about, however, which is becoming harder and harder to understand. If he can become more disciplined at the plate Campana is an extremely intriguing prospect.
Ryan Fitzgerald is riding a hot streak and has risen his average to .301. The second baseman has eight home runs in 196 at-bats and has driven in 26 runs while scoring 27 more.
Zach Sterry is currently on a mini-three-game-hitting-streak. In that time he’s 8-for-13 and has brought his average up to .293. The 24-year-old has 19 RBI in 140 at-bats and is starting to look extremely comfortable at the plate.
Denyi Reyes has a 1.89 ERA in 21 appearances (18 starts) this season. He’s struck out 122 batters in 123 2/3 innings while walking 13. The 21-year-old also has a 0.85 WHIP and a .201 BAA. There’s legitimately nothing to nitpick at when it comes to the 2018 season for the right-hander.
Reyes has a career ERA of 2.10 over 295 1/3 innings pitched. It’s time to start talking about him.
Kutter Crawford is now the 19th ranked prospect in the Red Sox system. His 2018 season is proving why, as he’s posted a 2.99 ERA over 20 starts. The 22-year-old has 116 strikeouts in 108 1/3 innings while allowing only five home runs.
Durbin Feltman has thrown seven innings for Greenville so far. He’s already racked up 14 strikeouts in that time. The third round pick of this year’s draft is 3-for-3 in save opportunities and should see Advanced-A soon.
