Double-A (Portland Sea Dogs)
Jarren Duran is here! It’s finally happened! The outfielder got the call-up on Monday, so of course, they didn’t play last night. The left-handed hitter had a .387 average in Advanced-A with 13 doubles and three triples as well as one home run. He had stolen a ridiculous 18 bases and scored an absurd 49 runs. This was past overdue.
C.J. Chatham is hitting .314 but hasn’t played since May 22. The shortstop’s bat is definitely being missed in Portland at the moment.

Bobby Dalbec is back up to .250 and had back-to-back two-home run games. He now has 12 homers on the season (nine doubles and one triple as well) and has driven in 31 runs.
Jhon Nunez is up to .298 on the year and has seven doubles and one triple, as well as two home runs. The catcher is a switch-hitter who’s extremely dangerous with the bat and has a great arm behind the plate.
Denyi Reyes is down to a 4.25 ERA after another lights-out performance. Last week I said he had his best start of the year (six shutout innings, allowing just three hits and striking out eight while walking none). He might’ve topped that this time around. The righty went six shutout innings again. This time he walked two batters but only allowed one hit and struck out seven. He was the best pitcher in the minors for Boston last year and is regaining that magic.
Tanner Houck also had a fantastic start this week, throwing six shutout innings of his own. Houck struck out seven while allowing three hits and three walks in the game. The righty now has a 4.47 ERA on the year.
Matthew Gorst has been phenomenal no matter where he’s pitching this year. He has a 2.70 ERA in Triple-A and an even better 1.59 ERA in Double-A. The right-hander has a 0.62 WHIP and .111 BAA with Portland this season.
Durbin Feltman still has a troublesome 6.05 ERA in Double-A this year. He’s cut down heavily on the walks recently though and it’s yielded great results. The 22-year-old has a 0.87 ERA in outings where he didn’t walk anyone (one run in 10 1/3 innings). However, he has a 12.00 ERA (12 runs in nine innings) in outings with a walk. Can you guess what the key to his success is?
