Red Sox affiliates
1:00 p.m.
Altoona Curve – Casey Sadler (5-3, 3.09 ERA)
at Portland Sea Dogs – Matt Barnes (3-1, 4.50 ERA)
NOTE: Fresh off of a successful May, Matt Barnes makes start number 11 on the season. Although he did go 2-0 (with a 2.65 ERA) last month, Barnes has not recorded a decision in four straight starts. Barnes has walked 1 batter in each of his last three outings.

1:05 p.m.
Syracuse Chiefs – Matt Torra (0-1, 5.73 ERA)
at Pawtucket Red Sox – Rubby De La Rosa (0-1, 3.45 ERA)
NOTE: He has yet to have the opportunity to work long enough into a game to earn a win, but Rubby De La Rosa has certainly done enough to almost always put his team in position for victory. He allowed just 1 earned run in May, throwing 16 innings and striking out 17 batters.

4:05 p.m.
Myrtle Beach Pelicans – Joe Van Meter (0-2, 2.54 ERA)
at Salem Red Sox – Kyle Stroup (2-3, 4.50 ERA)
NOTE: Kyle Stroup is coming off of a sound 7-inning no decision versus Potomac in which he allowed 2 earned runs and 6 hits. Of his 9 starts he has allowed 3 or fewer runs 7 times. Stroup has made two starts against Myrtle Beach, allowing 7 earned runs and 11 hits over 9 innings.

Asheville Tourists – Ben Hughes (5-4, 5.88 ERA)
at Greenville Drive – Jacob Dahlstrand (0-1, 7.04 ERA)
NOTE: Jacob Dahlstrand has made two appearances for Greenville, one relief and one start, and has posted similar results having allowed 3 earned runs, 7 hits and 2 walks in each of those outings. He did allow a home run in his last game equaling the number he allowed last year with Lowell in 55 innings of work.

New England teams
1:35 p.m.
Bowie Baysox – Jake Pettit (3-1, 3.64 ERA)
at New Britain Rock Cats – Logan Darnell (4-4, 2.51 ERA)
NOTE: Logan Darnell has been solid as a rock of late, but is 1-3 over his last four games. In those starts he has allowed 6 earned runs in 29 innings while striking out 25 and walking four.

Binghamton Mets – Jacob deGrom (1-5, 5.29 ERA)
at New Hampshire Fisher Cats – Sean Nolin (2-0, 1.77 ERA)
NOTE: Sean Nolin ran into some command issues in his last outing, walking a season-high 3 Portland batters. He did a solid job of working out of pressure and left the game after 5 innings having allowed just 2 earned runs. Nolin’s best work did come in his only afternoon start when he K’d 8 New Britain Rock Cats, earning a win after 6 scoreless innings.
