Red Sox Prospect Watch: Gilberto Jimenez hasn’t stopped raking
By Hunter Noll
Triple-A (Pawtucket Red Sox)
Bobby Dalbec was promoted to Triple-A about a month ago. One of the Red Sox top prospects has done nothing but hit. He’s rocking a .293 average, but most importantly, that ridiculous power is shining at the moment. Dalbec’s hit a homer in three straight games and now has six in 22 games for Pawtucket. He’s also driven in 13 runs and scored 10 more. The third/first baseman is ready.
C.J. Chatham has played 13 games in Triple-A. He didn’t record a hit in his first game but collected at least one in each of the next 11. That streak was broken on Monday. The shortstop is hitting .259 with four doubles and two homers already. He’s also driven in eight runs and scored six more. That run production is coming through early on.
Josh Ockimey is at .209 but has a homer in two of his last three games. The first baseman now has a career-high 24 homers (previous high was 20). He’s also walked 77 times and has 55 RBI and 60 runs scored.
Tanner Houck is down to a 2.21 ERA over 14 appearances in Triple-A. Over his last two outings, Houck has given up just one hit and one walk over three shutout innings, striking out five. The right-hander has 23 strikeouts and a .186 BAA over 20 1/3 innings with Pawtucket.
Trevor Kelley has a 1.90 ERA.
Teddy Stankiewicz is down to a 3.94 ERA as his fantastic season continues. The righty went 5 2/3 innings in his last start, giving up one run while striking out six. This is by-far Stankiewicz’s lowest ERA since 2015. He’s ready for a shot in the Majors.
Mike Shawaryn is thankfully back in the starting rotation. He went five innings, giving up two runs. The righty now has a 4.46 ERA in Triple-A. He has an 8.47 ERA as a reliever though – it drops to 3.46 as a starter.
Kyle Hart had two starts this week. In the first, he gave up three runs over 7 1/3 innings. In the next, he went six innings and allowed just one run. The lefty now has a 3.69 ERA in Triple-A.
