Minor League Update

Spring Training Games of March 26

by Jeff Moore


  • Allen Webster, RHP, Red Sox: 5 2/3 IP, 11 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, 3 K. Pitching depth should be one of the strengths of the Red Sox organization with pitchers like Webster and Anthony Ranaudo sitting in Triple-A ready to compete at the major-league level, but Webster hasn’t done anything to instill this spring. He may still end up as a potent bullpen arm, but he’ll return to Triple-A for the time being and work on refining his pitching approach to give him a chance to stay in the rotation long term.

  • Xander Bogaerts: 1-3, R, HR. Bogaerts has come on strong of late and will be just fine. Everyone in New England, please just take a deep breath and relax.

  • Carlos Martinez, RHP, Cardinals: 2/3 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 2 K. Martinez’s first outing as a reliever since the news that he would not make the Cardinals rotation did not go well. We can only speculate as to why—though I won’t—but regardless of the reason, it clearly wasn’t his best performance.

Your thoughts as to where Micah Johnson starts the season --is AA the most likely spot? Do you think he gets a cup of coffee with the big club in September?
