Movin’ On Up

Bubba Bell and Justin Masterson, the pair of former Spinners that have been dominating the California league, have been promoted to Double-A Portland. 

Bell, the 39th round pick of the Red Sox in 2005, struggled in the South Atlantic League last year before getting hot during a 23 game run with Lowell.  Bell was the MVP of the California-Carolina All-Star game this year and was on pace to hit 37 homers and drive in 140 runs with the JetHawks.

Masterson, a second round selection by the Red Sox a year ago, was dominant last year at Lowell and has done well this year in the California League, going 8-5 with a 4.33 ERA in many hitter-friendly ballparks.  He was also a member of the California League All-Star team.
