Lentz joins Solar Sox as Arizona Fall League begins


The Arizona Fall League begins today, and Richie Lentz has been added to the Red Sox contingent playing for the Mesa Solar Sox. Lentz, originally drafted in the 19th round in the 2006 draft, split his 2009 season between Lowell and Portland. In nine games rehabbing with the Spinners, Lentz posted a 3.95 ERA with 26 strikeouts in 13.2 innings. While with the Sea Dogs, Lentz appeared in 29 games, posting a 6.75 ERA with 48 strikeouts in 36 innings. Lentz joins Randor Bierd, Chris Province, Dustin Richardson, Luis Exposito, Jose Iglesias, Casey Kelly, and Ryan Kalish as the Red Sox representatives playing in the AFL. Bierd is expected to take the mound today against the Phoenix Desert Dogs in the season opener.

The AFL season runs from early October through mid-November, and generally features highly regarded prospects who the organization is looking to make big strides in the upcoming season. For more information on the AFL, check the SoxProspects.com Wiki.
