Red Sox High-A (Greenville)
Kristian Campbell made his High-A debut this week. The 132nd overall pick in this year's draft looked great, too. Campbell went 3-for-8 with a triple and a home run. The right-handed hitting utility drove in one run, scored three more, and stole one base.
Kyle Teel is demolishing High-A pitching. The left-handed hitting catcher is slashing .436/.531/.513 with three doubles. He's driven in nine runs, scored eight more, and stolen one base. Teel has more walks (8) than strikeouts (7).
Eddinson Paulino's upward trend continues. The left-handed hitting utility is slashing .253/.335/.417 with 24 doubles, four triples, and 11 home runs. He's driven in 54 runs, scored 62 more, and stolen 23 bases. Paulino's slashing .316/.398/.500 in August.
Gilberto Jimenez had an encouraging week. The switch-hitting outfielder is slashing .235/.267/.412 with seven doubles, one triple, and two home runs in High-A. He's driven in 13 runs, scored 15 more, and stolen six bases in 22 games.
Allan Castro had a couple of big performances this week. The switch-hitting outfielder is slashing .301/.383/.488 with seven doubles, two triples, and four home runs in High-A. He's driven in 14 runs, scored 19 more, and stolen two bases in 32 games.
Roman Anthony's cooling off as the wear of a long season seems to be hitting him. The left-handed hitting outfielder is still slashing .287/.404/.559 with 12 doubles, three triples, and 11 home runs in High-A. He's driven in 34 runs, scored 37 more, and stolen two bases.
Nick Decker had another solid week that included three steals. The left-handed hitting outfielder is slashing .220/.327/.425 with 12 doubles, four triples, and six home runs. He's driven in 20 runs, scored 34 more, and stolen eight bases.
Tyler Miller picked up a hit in four of five games this week. The left-handed hitting corner infielder/outfielder is slashing .269/.322/.425 with 18 doubles, three triples, and eight home runs. He's driven in 49 runs, scored 45 more, and stolen 17 bases. Miller has been extremely impressive at first base, in particular.
Max Ferguson hit a home run this week. The left-handed hitting utility is slashing .230/.353/.338 with 14 doubles, two triples, and five home runs in High-A. He's driven in 31 runs, scored 52 more, and stolen 28 bases.
Luis Perales twirled a gem this week. The right-handed pitcher tossed five scoreless innings, allowing just two hits. He walked three batters and struck out five. Perales has a 3.53 ERA, .218 BAA, and 1.39 WHIP between Single-A and High-A. He's struck out 105 batters compared to 46 walks in 79 innings.
Dalton Rogers had his best start in August this week. The lefty allowed one run on two hits over five innings. He walked three batters and struck out five. Rogers has a 4.57 ERA, .204 BAA, and 1.38 WHIP between Single-A and High-A. He's struck out 132 batters compared to 56 walks in 88 2/3 innings.
Zach Penrod has now made two starts in High-A. The left-handed pitcher hasn't surrendered a run over 11 innings of work. He's allowed seven hits and five walks while striking out nine batters.
Brock Bell tossed three scoreless innings over two appearances this week. The righty reliever has a 2.48 ERA, .221 BAA, and 1.07 WHIP in High-A. He's struck out 31 batters compared to eight walks in 32 2/3 innings.
Felix Cepeda allowed a run in High-A for the first time this week. The right-handed reliever has given up a frankly embarrassing one run in 16 innings at the level. That equals a 0.56 ERA, .154 BAA, and 0.69 WHIP. He's struck out 16 batters compared to three walks with Greenville. If you couldn't tell, that "embarrassing" line was sarcasm. We've seen utter dominance from Cepeda.
Noah Song allowed one run on three hits over four innings this week. The righty walked two batters and struck out one. Song has a 4.09 ERA, .273 BAA, and 1.45 WHIP in High-A. He's struck out seven batters compared to four walks in 11 innings.
