The The power has been on full display all spring, and he is now up to a 1.047 OPS in Grapefruit League action. Setting aside the numbers Riley O'Brien Jersey, he has just looked a lot more confident with his spring on a consistent basis, to the point where I think he has to have the inside track for that roster spot. It likely between him and Yairo Muoz, the latter of which is not on the 40-man roster. If there was a normal Triple-A season happening in April https://www.crfanstore.com/271-lucas_sims_jersey, I think there would be a better case to send Chavis down for those consistent at bats. I just not sure there the same kind of value in Alternate Site at bats, though, so that combined with his torrid spring give him the upper hand, at least in my mind.Nick Pivetta has a solid day on the moundThe start for this one went to Nick Pivetta, who looked very much like Nick Pivetta against the Rays. That, to be clear, is not really a bad thing considering he the number five pitcher in this rotation. And there are positives in this profile, which obviously pretty much starts and ends with the stuff. Pivetta can sling it and his secondaries have nice break as well, it just a matter of location. But in terms of stuff things looked good, with his fastball back up in the mid-90s. He had four strikeouts on the day.However, location and general command was an issue, which has too often been the case for him over his career. In this one, Pivetta did walk one batter, but he also gave up some hard contact, including three doubles plus a single. In all, it only resulted in one run across his four innings, so the damage was limited in that respect. Overall, I been more encouraged than discouraged with Pivetta this spring, though that is in part due to low expectations coming in. The stuff looks lively https://www.crfanstore.com, and he done well enough locating that I think he can be a fine back-end arm. Again, the Red Sox don need a breakout where he turns into an ace. They just need a guy who can keep them in a ballgame once every five days. This spring, he looked like a guy who can do that, even with some missed locations. Other NotesHirokazu Sawamura made his second appearance for the Red Sox this spring https://www.crfanstore.com/607-mike_freeman_jersey, and this one looked a lot like his first. That is not a good thing. The reliever struggled mightily with control once again, recording only two outs while allowing a run on three walks and a double. He did have a couple of nice strikeouts after loading the bases with no outs, but he couldn finish the inning. To me, it just looks like a guy who is over-amped, which is understandable given the circumstances. We want to see him look more refined a few times before the season starts, but right now I not super worried.Matt Barnes also got into this game as he looks to grab that closer role to start the season. He was not perfect in this one, but the stuff still looked crisp. The righty allowed a couple of runners on a walk and a single, but got out of the inning without any runs thanks in part to a pair of strikeouts.Triston Casas, the organization top prospect, got the start in this one after making his spring debut off the bench on Sunday. He started at DH and had a couple of good at bats. In particular, he drew a really impressive walk that showed off his advanced approach. Overall he went 0-3 with the walk and a strikeout.Other players getting hits in this game who have not been mentioned were: Jarren Duran, who came in off the bench and used his speed to turn a soft ball to right field into a triple; Bobby Dalbec, who started at third base and went 2-3 with a double, a single, a run scored and a strikeout as he continues to have a great spring; J.D. Martinez, who started the game in left fieldand went 1-2 with a single and a strikeout; Csar Puello, who came in off the bench and had a single in his only at bat; Kevin Plawecki Hal Mcrae Jersey, who started behind the plate and went 1-2 with a single; Austin Rei, who came in to hit late in the game and smacked a double; and Kole Cottam, who was another mid-game sub who went 1-2 with a single.Also pitching in this game who have not been mentioned were: Josh Winckowski, part of the return in the Andrew Benintendi deal who came in after Sawamura and retired the only batter he faced; Josh Taylor, who should make the Opening Day roster and allowed a run in his inning of work on a single and a walk; and Colten Brewer, who is likely going to start the year in Worcester and tossed a scoreless inning in which he allowed just a walk.
