Oh I don’t know.  What do you do with this guy?  He is tearing it up in Worcester but man, can he actually hit in the Majors?  If the offense continues to struggle I think you have to give strong consideration to giving him one more chance. 
Narrator: Strong consideration was given.

Shaw DFA, Cordero added to active roster and headed to Boston.

Well, headed to Baltimore, to play for Boston.

Seriously. The time between me writing that and the move being made was pretty tiny.

Going to Franchy looks like the right move. His AAA numbers from 2021 and 2022 are remarkably consistent, with around a 12% walk rate, 28% K rate, and low-.900s OPS, and ~145 wRC+. I'm not confident he'll be a close to average player, but I'm pretty confident he'll be as good as or better than Dalbec/Shaw have been against righties.

But Franchy plays OF, not 1B. I mean, the OF needs help, too. He's automatically the #2 OF bat, on this team, so, gobless, as they say.

He's played first base 3 times already this year. I suspect he's not very good at it but he does play it and it's not like Dalbec is doing a George Scott impression over there.

Dalbec isn't terrible there. If he hit, we wouldn't be worried about his defense.

Well yeah but he's not hitting at all. He's not terrible defensively but I think he's below average.

RHP Brayan Bello threw a 7 inning no hitter in the second game of Portland's doubleheader against Reading last night.

In the other half of the double-header where Bello threw the 7-inning no-hitter, Brandon Walter was pretty awesome:

6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 10 Ks

For the season, Walter has pitched 29 innings, 17 hits, 39/1 K/BB ratio. Yeah, 39 to 1.

Walter is 24 and at AA, so I suspect the team is going to soon and aggressively promote him to see what they have here.

Checking Walter's profile on SoxProspects looks like a Sale clone.
   12. Captain Joe Bivens, Pointless and Wonderful Posted: May 07, 2022 at 03:22 PM (#6075661)
He's 25.

Old Non-prosect love alert!!! Devlin Granberg was a finalist for the Dick Howser Trophy in 2018, when he hit 0.443 0.541 0.680 for college baseball powerhouse Dallas Baptist. He was drafted in the sixth round and received a $40,000 bonus. Since then he's generally hit quite well but also been old for his level. This year, the 26-year-old has stepped up his game, hitting .333/.471/.493 with 15 BB and 9 K in 87 PA at AA Portland. Previously considered a corner OF/1B type, he's starting in CF for Portland.

So yes, this is my new Nava.

Also, it appears that Noah Song has completed his flight school training and applied for a waiver. So don't worry about the pitching.
