2014

2013

Brentz overcame a slow start at Double-A Portland, a new level for him, to hit .296/.355/.478 with 17 homers before a late-season promotion to Triple-A Pawtucket. It took a little more than a month for Brentz, but he eventually adjusted to the advanced off-speed stuff he saw at the higher level, and he remains the organization's top power prospect. The team would like to see him become more selective at the plate and to continue to hone the mechanics of his swing. Defensively, Brentz is still working on his routes to flyballs and instincts. After a productive stint in the Arizona Fall League, Brentz should open the season at Triple-A Pawtucket.

2012

When Brentz first debuted after signing with the Red Sox in 2010, he had to adjust to wearing contacts. That accomplished, his next goal was to start hitting for power in 2011. That goal was achieved - he hit a combined 30 homers between Low-A and High-A last season. Next on the agenda for Brentz is to improve his defense (he committed 17 errors and took numerous bad routes on fly balls) and improve his batting eye - once he got promoted to High-A Salem, his contact rate dropped to 72 percent. All-in-all though it was a successful season for the 2010 first-round supplemental pick. He eventually could be a part of the Red Sox corner outfield picture, perhaps as a September call-up in 2013.

2011

Brentz started slowly at Short-Season Lowell, adjusting to the wooden bat as well as wearing contact lenses for the first time. He finished off the season with a nice August run, which indicated better pitch recognition and a smoothing of the mechanics in his swing. He's expected to open the year at Low-A Greenville, where we'll get to see how last year's late-season improvement translates to the advanced level of pitching he'll see in the Sally League. As he develops a better approach at the plate, we should start to see some of the power that's been predicted.
