PAWTUCKET â The anatomy of a young hitter adjusting to a new minor league level has been on full display lately.
In the case of outfield prospect Bryce Brentz, the hot streak he carries into the Governorsâ Cup finals represents a complete 180 from where he stood following a handful of Triple-A games.
PAWTUCKET â The scouting report provided by Pawtucket Red Sox catcher Dan Butler revealed just how on knuckleball pitcher Steven Wright was on Tuesday night.
âIt was all over the place and just so unpredictable,â said Butler after Pawtucket took Game One of the Governorsâ Cup finals against Charlotte by a 7-2 count. âI couldnât catch it and they (meaning the Knight batters) couldnât hit it. I donât know if (Wright) knew where it was going, but it was a pretty special pitch tonight.â
