    Re: A look at the kids Jackie Bradley and Matt Barnes

    It's official, Barnes is finally coming back down to Earth.  His ERA today is 50% higher than what he had at A+ coming into this game.... 1.50!  1 ER in another 6 innings of work.  Only 3 K's, but no walks to go along with 5 hits.

    Another solid outing for Barnes.

    He's now allowed 4 ER in 50 2/3 innings this season between Greeneville and Salem.

    What is his K/BB? It got to be mind blowing.

    Nice post RSDO, Have to also like that there's a lot of talent at lower levels due to fact RS have had a lot of picks early in the last 2 drafts. Not surprising that farmhands doing well are college players who are better prepared for rigors of minor league ball. But RS also have some young kids who have a lot of upside Swihart [C-off to slow start] Owens[LHP] Cecchini [inf] Coyle [inf] Wilkerson [OF] Jacobs [OF] and Bogaerts [inf] not to mention guys who could be on team very soon Lavernway / Iglesias / Tazawa / Kalish. While fans complain when the likes of V.Martinez / Beltre / Paps leave the plus side is the picks that turn into players just like Buchholz for Pedro.

    Between Greenville and Salem, his numbers are below:
    50 2/3 IP
    6 BB
    70 K

    Also, it was interesting that they promoted Wilkerson to Portland and not Bradley, Jr.

    At those lower levels, it is hard to know the reasoning behind some moves.  Either way, I am very excited about these kids' progress.

    Yes, the Sox have had more 1st rounders than normal the past 2 years, but that doesn't really explain all of the depth in the lower minors.  Those extra picks only account for Barnes, Swihart, JB Jr, Brentz and Ranuado.  Both Brentz and Ranuado are at AA, so I wouldn't call that the lower minors, although Ranuado is pitching like he belongs in A+ ball.  He should be given every opportunity to fully get into game shape after missing extended time with a groin injury, but so far 2 starts with a 9.35 ERA in 8 2/3 innings with 8 BB's to 6 K's.  I wonder if he learned that from Buchholz? Tongue Out

    Anyway:

    Owens - 5.63 ERA in low A, #36 overall
    Cecchini - 4th round
    Coyle - 3rd round
    Wilkerson - 8th round (2009)
    Jacobs - 10th round (2009)
    Bogaerts - International FA

    As you can see the lower level depth that you mention weren't taken with the extra picks early in the draft, with the exception of Owens, who still has to prove that he can be considered depth.

    It should also be noted that the Sox have forfeited more draft picks than normal the past few years through Type A FA signings.  Yes, the Crawford and Lackey deals hurts even more than many fans realize.

    2011: #24 - Crawford
    2010: #29 - Lackey, #80 - Scutaro

    The Scutaro signing couldn't have gone better, since we were still able to flip him for Mortensen (1st rounder, 2007) after getting 2 MLB seasons of good production out of him.

    No shinola, Sherlock.
    With recent promotion of Ron Bermudez from Portland to Pawtucket instead of Linares, I'm completely flabbergasted. There must be something about JC which management or scouting just doesn't like. I'm thinking attitude , injury history, sub-par defense......it has to be something.
    Can't help noticing he's been in right, left, or dh much more than center lately. But to acquire Byrd, then Podsednik, and then promote Bermudez ahead of him ?
    Something we're just not being made aware of.

    Right now it's injury history, easing him back after tearing his Achilles last season.
