23 year old outfielder Bryce Brentz was taken 36th overall by the Red Sox in the 2010 draft out of Middle Tennessee State. Brentz split his second pro season at A Greenville & A+ Salem, where he combined to slash .306/.365/.574 with 30 homers. He’s at AA Portland this season and so far in 35 games with the Sea Dogs Brent has hit .289/.333/.430 with 3 HRs. One area the power prospect is working on is his strikeout rate. Last year in Salem Brentz struck out nearly 25% of the time and so far this season he’s K’d over 28% of the time. Brentz has been hot as of late and earlier this week he sat down with Portland broadcaster Mike Antonellis.
