Minor Notes: Granberg promoted to Salem; progress made in Worcester


Here are Thursday's minor league notes:
  • After a slew of promotions last week there was one more that came through recently, with Devlin Granberg being promoted to Salem. A sixth-round pick in 2018, Granberg hit .286/.386/.434 with eight home runs for Greenville. The 23-year-old was rotating at first base with Triston Casas, and he will now be tested by the pitcher-friendly confines of Salem. 
  • Salem also added Nick Sciortino as he was activated from the injured list after suffering a head injury, and to make room they sent Korby Batesole to Lowell and Charlie Madden to Portland. 
  • Both Marco Hernandez and Josh Smith reported to Pawtucket after being optioned earlier in the week, while Kevin Lenik was placed on the injured list with a right oblique strain. 
  • Noah Song has gotten off to a tremendous start, striking out seven over five innings of two-hit ball to begin his career. Song spoke with Mark Singelais of the Times Union and reaffirmed his commitment to enter flight school on November 1. 
  • Stan Grossfeld of the Boston Globe had an interesting article ($) on Portland pitcher Adam Lau, who lives in an RV with his wife. The 25-year-old was drafted out of UAB in 2015, and he has been a solid organizational arm ever since. 
  • Construction is starting on Polar Park, the future home in Worcester of Boston's Triple-A affiliate. A new road called Canal Street will be created near the park, and the park is still on track to be completed for the 2021 season. Melissa Hanson of MassLive.com has the full details on the park in her article from Wednesday.
