Minor Notes: Ockimey activated, more spring scouting notes


Here are Thursday's minor league notes:
  • In the latest Notes from the Field, SoxProspects.com Director of Scouting Ian Cundall covered Hunter HaworthLukas Young, and Angel Padron. The three Greenville pitchers are all getting their first taste of full-season ball, with Young and Padron off to strong starts. 
  • Cundall followed that up with another article focusing on some of the system's younger arms, with Juan Florentino, Andres Jimenez, Oddanier Mosqueda, and Edilson Batista all showing some intrigue. 
  • Ninth-ranked prospect Josh Ockimey (pictured, right) was activated from the disabled list on Tuesday and made his season debut for the Portland Sea Dogs. 
  • A trio of catchers were on the move early in the week as Isaias Lucena was called up to Portland from Greenville to fill in for Jordan Procyshen who was placed on the disabled list.  Charlie Madden was activated off the disabled list for Greenville to replace Lucena. 
  • With the minor league rules continuing to change, the effect on the players is starting to come out. Some players on the Drive have expressed their frustration with the new mound visit rules to Jim Rice of the Greenville News.
  • Brandon Moss returned to Portland on Wednesday to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Portland's first home game. After making his major league debut with the Red Sox in 2007, Moss has played parts of 11 years in the big leagues, though he is currently a free agent. 
  • Moss was also honored by being named to the Portland Sea Dogs All-Time Team, which includes the team's time as an affiliate of the Marlins and Red Sox. Joining him on the team is Charles Johnson, Kevin Millar, Dustin Pedroia, Kevin Youkilis, Hanley Ramirez, Andrew Benintendi, Jacoby Ellsbury, Josh Beckett, Jonathan Papelbon, Jon Lester, and Daniel Bard, with Carlos Tosca as the manager.
