Chatham went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored for the GCL Red Sox on Friday.
Boston's second-round draft pick in 2016 has begun his professional career at the rookie-level Gulf Coast League. Chatham went hitless in his first 16 at-bats, but is 4-for-8 with two doubles and a homer in his last two games.
Moncada has been working out at third base with Double-A Portland, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.
Red Sox general manager Mike Hazen confirmed that the organization has been working Moncada at third base prior to Sea Dogs' road games. Hazen also said the plan is to continue to introduce Moncada to positions other than second base, with the likelihood he'll get some practice time in the outfield. It's no secret that the pressing needs at the major-league level are third base and left field, so it's natural to see if Moncada can become an option at one of those spots.
This was the left-hander's best outing of the season and a reminder of why he was regarded so highly as a prospect. The pinpoint control that fueled Johnson's rise through the organization was on full display Friday -- the first time he hasn't issued a free pass since May 2015. The performance was quite a relief following his three-inning outing last Sunday in which he allowed 10 baserunners and four runs -- that was his first start at Triple-A following his two-month ordeal to address an anxiety issue. He'll need to string together a few performances before the
Green is hitting .255/.317/.413 with 21 doubles and 11 home runs in 317 at-bats for High-A Clearwater.
Green, 22, is spending his second season at Clearwater after missing significant time with an injury last season. The former third-round pick is showing good power, but his 97 strikeouts in 85 games indicates he has some major holes in his swing.
Knapp is hitting .266/.333/.392 with 15 doubles and seven home runs in 301 at-bats for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Knapp isn't showing the offensive firepower he displayed last season at Double-A Reading, but he is holding his own at Triple-A. His defense remains a work in progress, and it remains to be seen if he can stick behind the plate long-term. The Phillies could trade Carlos Ruiz this month or next which might create an opportunity for Knapp to get his first exposure to major league pitching while sharing time behind the plate with Cameron Rupp.
