  • On the Rise…Matt Barnes continues to dominate in his first professional season…The righty hurled six scoreless innings for Salem on Thursday night, and leads all Red Sox minor league pitchers with a 0.60 ERA and 67 strikeouts.
  • On the decline…Daisuke Matsuzaka was roughed up on Thursday night in Durham, yielding 5 runs (4 earned) over 6.2 IP for Pawtucket.
  • Did you know? Hideki Matsui signed a minor league contract with the Tampa Bay Rays and is currently playing in Triple-A Durham…His official statistics show that his first ever minor league game was 2007 with the Tampa Yankees, but that is wrong…Matsui suited up for the 2006 Trenton Thunder in the first round of the playoffs and played his first ever minor league game against Portland.
