Anderson Espinoza’s Boston Sox Career
On the first of June, 2015, Espinoza was sent to the Dominican Summer League Red Sox 2. He had a 1.20 ERA and 21 strikeouts in 15 innings in that circuit, allowing only two earned runs on 13 hits and two walks.
His fastball reportedly reached speeds of up to 99 mph (159 km/h) on occasion, which was well above the league average.
Late in the month, he was promoted to the Gulf Coast League Red Sox, a minor league affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.
With just three earned runs allowed over 40 innings, Espinoza tallied a 0.68 earned run average (.170 OPS), 40 strikeouts and nine walks, helping the GCL Red Sox win their second championship in a row.
With his promotion to Low-A Greenville, the young right-hander made his first pitching appearance of the season on September 5.
Espinoza became the first 17-year-old pitcher to start a full-season Class A South Atlantic League game since Deolis Guerra for the Hagerstown Suns of the New York Mets franchise in 2006.
Espinoza had a 1.23 ERA, a 0.99 WHIP, and 65 strikeouts in 58 13 innings across 15 starts at three different levels. He was limited to a four-inning per game quota.
Greenville was Espinoza’s first opponent of the 2016 season.
