I’ve gone up and down this list about 10 times and I can’t find anyone that would have started in Boston this year. Murph might have helped off the bench.

It’s amazing that not many of the minor league players would have made the 2009 PawSox, but I guess that’s better than having a list of players we wish were still in the organization.

How about Travis Hughes? After playing in Japan in 2008, he pitched for both the York Revolution (May 13-July 7) and the Calgary Vipers (July 10 through the end of the season) this year. He was 1-2 with a 5.93 ERA in 12 games for York, 3-0, 4.50 in 15 regular season games and 0-0, 11.25 in 4 postseason games for Calgary.

Probably worth noting that Craig Hansen only pitched in 5 games for the Pirates, never coming off the DL after April 20.

We were fortunate to be at the New Britain Rock Cats game when Alejandro Machado hit his first home run! We found out he was rehabbing there and took the trip to see him.
