    Probably the same for Brentz to some extent.

    It just doesn't project to the bigs.

    That being said, I'd have given Brentz a shot this September, even if just as a PH'er to start.

    The 2017 Arizona Fall League rosters have been announced, with seven members of the Red Sox set to play for the Peoria Javelinas. They will send infielders Michael Chavis, Josh Tobias, and Chad De La Guerra, and pitchers Brian Johnson, Henry Owens, Ty Buttrey, and Bobby Poyner. Former Red Sox prospect Javier Guerra will also play with the Javelinas.

    On Brentz...

    We are going to have to trade or DFA some players to make room for rule 5 additions, so we probably already know who is going to go.
    We could have jumped the gun and made room for Brentz on the 40 man by getting rid of someone we are bound to get rid of later this fall.

    Here are the rule 5 players:


    Victor Acosta, Yoan Aybar, Trey Ball, Jalen Beeks, Danny Bethea, Jordan Betts, Ty Buttrey, Rusney Castillo, Harrison Cooney, Jake Cosart, Enmanuel De Jesus, Jhonathan Diaz, Willis Figueroa, Pat Goetze, Daniel Gonzalez, Justin Haley, Juan Hernandez, Bryan Hudson, Dedgar Jimenez, Raiwinson Lameda, Isaias Lucena, Danny Mars, Algenis Martinez, Kevin McAvoy, Daniel McGrath, Ritzi Mendoza, Mike Meyers, Mike Miller, Samuel Miranda, Joseph Monge, Jhon Nunez, Justin Pacchioli, Yankory Pimentel, Jordan Procyshen, Hildemaro Requena, Jeremy Rivera, Fernando Rodriguez, Jake Romanski, Chandler Shepherd, Josh Smith, Teddy Stankiewicz, Cole Sturgeon, Aneury Tavarez, Carlos Tovar, Jantzen Witte

    Here are some players that could have been traded or DFA'd:

    Henry Owens

    Holt or Marrero (with Hernandez and Lin, we don't need both for 2018.

    Elias or Kyle Martin

    Hembree is out of options and may not make the 25 man roster next year. We could have traded him.

    Boyer

    Young

    All we needed was to decide on one of these guys. I'm sure DD already knows which one will not be on the 40 man roster by rule 5 time.

    They could easily make room for Brentz. They just don't want to.
    Fire Farrell - fucking check mark!
    Trade Pedroia
    Sign JD Martinez to play 1B/DH
    Sign Alex Cora for MGR

    Brentz's cup-of-coffee numbers for the Red Sox aren't even that bad...SSS needless to say.

    Yes, it's obvious they have no faith in BB.

    There were several easy options to add Brentz to the roster. They must not have felt they'd use BB this year (or next, as he will be a minor league FA this winter.)

    I doubt he'd have made a difference, but I felt like he should have at least been given a chance to PH here and there this month. If he did well, he could have been given more playing time.

    Dalbec 0 for 4 with 3 strike outs tonight.

    Mata threw 92 pitches over 4.1 innings with 0 er and 7 k's.

    Greenville lost 2 to 1.

    Mata moved from 16th to 5th on soxprospects.com (before this game).

    Once Devers graduates, he could move to #1 or 2.

    With Devers graduation I also see him jumping ahead of Travis but I'm not sure I'd put him ahead of Groome or Chavis just yet. He's still young and very far away.

    Yeah, 3 is probably his next stop.
