Player Notes
Red Sox prospect RHP Matt Barnes allowed two runs on four hits and two walks struck out four batters over 7 1/3 innings on Monday for Triple-A Pawtucket.

Advice: Barnes' prospect stock was already declining heading into 2014, so it certainly didn't help that he began the season by posting a 5.06 ERA and 1.59 WHIP over 74 2/3 innings at Pawtucket. However, things seemingly have clicked for the 24-year-old right-hander over the last month, as he's pitched to a sparkling 1.59 ERA with 34 strikeouts over 39 2/3 innings (six starts). Meanwhile, opposing hitters are batting just .153/.227/.204 against him during that span. Barnes is an under-the-radar candidate for a September call-up, as the Red Sox will need to add him to their 40-man roster this fall to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft.
