With the PawSox rained out on Tuesday, the Red Sox’ organizational attention turned to the lower levels with the Triple-A affiliate out of action.
With Double-A Portland, reliever Durbin Feltman continued his recent roll with a scoreless inning against Erie on the road. Feltman, who struggled at times in late April and early May, particularly with two terrible outings that saw his ERA balloon into double-digits, has just two runs in the 13 outings since getting shelled against Binghamton. In 17 1/3 innings over those 13 appearances, the 22-year-old righty has fanned 14 batters and only allowed nine hits.
Flores struggling in Lowell
The ninth-ranked prospect in the Red Sox organization according to Baseball America, shortstop Antoni Flores has struggled to adapt to life in Lowell, hitting just .133 — 2-for-15 — in his first four games with the Single-A Spinners.
An international signing out of Venezuela, Flores struck out three times against the Connecticut Tigers on June 15, and went 0-for-3 on Tuesday night in Lowell’s 2-1 loss to the Brooklyn Cyclones.
