Minor League notebook: Fisher Cats top prospect starts in loss

Four Binghamton pitchers held the Fisher Cats to just five hits. New Hampshire lost 6-0 at home.

Right-hander Aaron Sanchez, the No. 1 prospect in the Blue Jays system, allowed three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out four batters for the Fisher Cats.

Sanchez, 21, has the best fastball and curveball in the Toronto system, according to Baseball America.

Cecchini update

Red Sox third base prospect Garin Cecchini went 1 for 6 with two runs in the Pawtucket Red Sox’ 7-5 win over Buffalo. Cecchini is batting .316 with a .366 on-base percentage but just a .342 slugging percentage in his first 10 Triple-A games.

Allen Webster started for the Pawtucket, going 5.0 innings and allowing four runs, three earned, on three runs and four walks while striking out one. His ERA stands at 3.68 after three starts.

What a start!

Mookie Betts, a 21-year-old second baseman who is ranked the seventh best prospect in the Red Sox system, went 1 for 3 with a double, walk and RBI for Double-A Portland yesterday. But Portland lost 6-3.

Betts is batting .457 with a .512 on-base percentage, .743 slugging percentage, one homer, four RBIs, five doubles and one triple in his first nine Double-A games.
