Ian Cundall @iancundall Yusniel Padron-Artilles has faced twelve hitters in relief. He has struck out all twelve of them. Stuff better than I’ve seen from him before. Velo up, FB 90-92 T93. CH 80-82 showing late fade and snapping off CB 70-75. Mixing all three pitches and keeping ball down.
Ian Cundall @iancundall Heck of a finish in Lowell. #RedSox 2019 19th rd pick Joe Davis out of @uhcougarbb with a walkoff HR to left-center. RHP Yusniel Padron-Artilles also excellent: 6 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 14 K. One of the best pitching performances I’ve seen from a Red Sox farmhand.
Lisa Reynolds @copyincity Twelve. Strikeouts. IN A ROW. In total, 14 strikeouts, and just one hit, in six innings of relief pitching. By comparison, the MLB record for consecutive strikeouts is 10. “Gem” is an understatement for what Yusniel Padrom-Artiles did tonight for Lowell. I love baseball. . . . Salem is up 2-0 in their best of 5. Lowell is tied 1-1 in their best of three.

Next years Greenville team is likely to be the best Sox prospect group I've ever seen, levels not considered. I've always thought the 2016 Salem team was the best. It featured Devers, Benintendi, Moncada and Kopech among others.
Next year's Greenville team will likely have a decent prospect at every position including a few studs and something that's a rarity for the Sox, a loaded starting rotation. Besides Yusniel Padron-Artilles, the staff could also feature Groome, Song, Zeferjahn, Murphy and Aldo Ramirez among others.
By the end of 2021, we should have one of the top systems in baseball.

The minor league season is over what what a great development year it was for the lower minors.
Ian Cundall @iancundall ·
When I talk about the depth in low minors of the #RedSox system coming back this Lowell team is the prime example. By the end of the season they had 10 of @soxprospects Top 20 prospects on their roster. Five starting pitching prospects and five position player prospects.

(We got Wilson for Swihart)
Jacob Zweiback @thereeljz
Don’t forget about guys like @redsox Marcus Wilson—outside the top 100 but plenty talented in their own right. @mw12 has barreled two singles today, showing good strength and bat speed. The 2014 2nd rounder is the best athlete on this field: 160 steals the past 3 years
