Minor League Update

Games of Thursday, August 29

by Zach Mortimer


“The Good”

  • Matt Barnes, RHP, Red Sox (Triple-A Pawtucket): 5.1 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 7 K. I have teased my write-up on Barnes for awhile. Of course, I forgot to send it in because I went to the game without sending the email. So, next week, the Barnes report will be in. The fastball is a quality offering, the changeup flashes, but I’m not in love with the curveball. I believe Barnes can be a starter, but I’m thinking it’s more of a very good back-of-the-rotation starter.
  • Kyle Crick, RHP, Giants (High-A San Jose): 7.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 11 K. Crick offers a fastball that works in the mid 90s and can touch 96, a curveball with plus potential that works in the low 80s, and he's still working on developing a changeup. Crick has the potential to be an impact starting pitcher.
  • C.J. Cron, 1B, Angels (Double-A Arkansas): 2-4, R, HR, R, 3
