Matt Barnes promoted to Salem

Matt Barnes, the 19th overall selection in the 2011 draft by the Red Sox, was promoted from Low Class A Greenville to Single A Salem earlier today.

The 21-year-old righthander out of UConn didn’t give the Red Sox much choice. Check out his statistics through five starts:

26.2 IP, 12 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 42 K.

The one run scored on Sunday after he left the game.

Dom Amore of the Hartford Courant has a great piece on Barnes today.

Anthony Ranaudo, the organzation’s other top pitching prospect, is in extended spring training and has yet to join an affiliate this season.
