To be fair this time they had Breslow ready and Hanrahan can close, Bailey in a week gets what 4 games max, instead of optioning somebody to pawtucket now they give themselves an extra week to dicde who to put down for Breslow.
Who do you guys put down Miller or Mortenson are the top canidates.
i think mortensen just threw 98 pitches to get out of the inning against the 7-8-9 hitters. .
He's being a warrior right now though to be honest with you. Working on back to back days in a high leverage situations. I'm sure it's showing Cherington, Farrell, and hopefully even other teams a lot.
A little prospect update for those who are interested:
Rubby De La Rosa: Don't look now, but after a rough start to the season he's thrown 10 scoreless innings over 3 appearances, striking out 12 while giving up 7 hits and only 2 BB
Webster is still a stud.
It seems as if Brock Huntzinger's stuff is playing well in Portland's closer role. He can get it up to the mid 90's. He has a 3.52 ERA with 7 saves
Matt Barnes has been getting touched up a bit, but tonight he threw 6 scoreless, whiffing 4 and walking a batter. ERA is down to 5.19, but he is 3-1
Keep an eye on Keith Couch.
Bogaerts is hurt but was hitting well before the minor injury (up to .303 after a slow start)
Sean Coyle, a guy who has been age advanced at every level but wasn't necessarily producing, is off to a breakout season down in Salem. He is a tiny but well built 2B with some pop (already has 9 dingers) and good speed.
Cecchini is raking and will be up in AA in no time once Bogaerts is promoted to Pawtucket. He is hitting .374, OPSing 1.102, and has stolen 10 bases. The kid is a stud and there is a reason he was a legit top 15 talent before tearing his knee up in high school. We were lucky to get him where we did.
