Weekly Notes: Minor League games begin


Here are this week's minor league notes:

Players of the Week 4/7-4/10: This season the SoxProspects.com staff will select the best hitter and pitcher of each week throughout the season and feature them in the Weekly Notes:
Teddy Stankiewicz, SP, Portland Sea Dogs
1 G, 0-0, 6 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K

Stankiewicz (pictured, left) was terrific in his Portland Sea Dogs debut on Sunday. He allowed an earned run in the second inning but tossed four shutout innings after that. He was in line for a win when he left the game, but the Portland bullpen surrendered the lead late in the game. He induced a double play ball and recorded a strikeout in every inning except the third.

Jantzen Witte, 3B, Portland Sea Dogs
4 G, 18 PA, 9 H, 2 HR, 4 R, 5 RBI, 3 BB, 2 K, .600/.632/1.000

Witte is off to a scorching start for the Sea Dogs. He homered on Opening Day, then recorded a multi-hit game in each of the next three games, including a pair of three-hit performances. He also had the most hits, home runs, runs, and RBI in the Red Sox minor league system this past week. Witte is a 26-year old who has been in the Sox system since 2013. He spent all of 2015 in Portland and hit .283/.363/.414.
