Listening to a few of his innings on MiLB radio, it sounds like the announcers were concerned about his depending too much on his fastball. Even throwing 94, good AA and AAA hitters will sit on it. Without strong secondary pitches, Britton might be better suited as a reliever, and if he struggles in AA, I wouldn't be surprised to see him move to the bullpen later this year.
Britton rocked, 3ip 10h 7er 1hr 1bb 1k.

The Pawtucket Red Sox’s Daniel Bard blew a save opportunity in the ninth inning and the Syracuse Chiefs were able to extend the game and eventually beat the PawSox, 6-5, in 11 innings.
Pawtucket’s Justin Germano was denied his league-leading ninth win despite seven solid innings of work. Germano scattered three hits, allowing just one run, a solo homer by Koyie Hill. The Chiefs scored a couple of runs against Junichi Tazawa in the eighth inning, including a two-run double by Corey Brown. Garrett Mock (3-2) was tagged with the loss.
Pawtucket scored twice in the third. Josh Kroeger doubled in a run and Ryan Lavarnway singled in another. Lavarnway went 4-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored. The PawSox got another pair of runs in the sixth. Mauro Gomez and Che-Hsuan Lin knocked in runs. The PawSox scored an insurance run in the top of the ninth on a base hit by Jon Hee.
In the bottom of the ninth, Chris Marrero, cousin of Red Sox top draft pick Deven Marrero, doubled off the wall. Xavier Paul then singled. With runners at first and third, Bard threw a wild pitch that allowed a run to score. Then, with a runner on third, Bard uncorked a second wild pitch that tied the game, 5-5.
In the 11th, with men at first and third with one out, Jarrett Hoffpauir singled in the winning run.
Left-hander Drake Britton cruised in his first three Double-A starts. But his fourth start got bumpy in a hurry. He surrendered 10 hits and seven runs in three innings as Harrisburg topped Portland 7-3 before 4,791 at Hadlock Field.
Sea Dogs left fielder Jeremy Hazelbaker gave the home fans something to cheer about with home runs in the first and third innings.
And Portland relievers Caleb Clay and Will Latimer both recorded three shutout innings.
But the Sea Dogs were playing catch-up from the beginning.
Britton, promoted from advanced Class A Salem on June 1, gave up only two runs in his first three Double-A starts.
On Wednesday, he attacked the zone with a 95 mph fastball and the Senators were swinging.
"He's got real good stuff," said Harrisburg leadoff hitter Jeff Kobernus, who doubled on the first pitch of the game. "He throws hard. With those guys, you've got to look for your pitch and be ready to hit. You may only get one good pitch to hit."
Manager Kevin Boles was not worried about Britton (1-1).
"Just one of those things. His stuff was fine, his velocity was good," Boles said. "They ambushed him a couple of times on the first pitch. They put together a good approach against him."
As for Bradley, the outfielder who dominated in Salem with a .359 batting average, he is expected to be activated today with Portland.
After Wednesday's game, outfielder Juan Carlos Linares was told he was being promoted to Pawtucket -- which would make room for Bradley.
When the Boston Red Sox made their sixth-round selection, 203rd overall, in the 2010 First-Year Player Draft, they got value that potentially could extend well beyond production on the field.
Boston added to its organization a power-hitting and potential-filled standout outfielder who racked up gaudy numbers on the talent-rich high school baseball diamonds of Texas. As an added bonus, the slugger from the Lone Star State happens to share a name -- and a unique one at that -- with one of the recent favorites of Boston sports fans.
If it all works out, we're talking about a marketing sensation. And you know John Henry and Larry Lucchino like the sound of that.
Meet 20-year-old Lowell Spinners outfielder Kendrick Perkins. Yes, he is the namesake of the former Boston Celtics hard-working center who helped the C's to the 2008 NBA title before getting traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder last year. Many of the center's loyal supporters in the area are still bitter about the trade, as they watch Perkins anchor the middle for OKC in the NBA Finals.
The 6-foot-2, 225-pound highly-regarded Red Sox prospect is relishing his opportunity to become the new Perk in town. In just his second game in a Spinners uniform on Tuesday night, he crushed a no-doubt-about-it home run over the right field wall at LeLacheur Park, giving 5,034 fans something to cheer about in an 11-4 Lowell loss.
He hopes to be replicating that at Fenway Park in the near future.
"With the name, comes expectations," said Perkins, who is 5-for-12 (.417) with 4 RBI in 3 games.
"It pushes me and motivates me. He grew up (Beaumont, Texas) about 75 miles from where I grew up. It's really neat how it all worked out. He gets drafted by Boston, then I end up getting drafted by Boston. It's amazing."
According to whitepages.com, there are only eight people in the United States named Kendrick Perkins. The fact that two of them are professional athletes is quite the strange coincidence.
"My mom and dad couldn't believe it," Perkins said. "They said 'this is neat there's some guy named Kendrick Perkins who plays basketball. He's pretty good I hear.' So we drove all the way to Austin to watch him play. It was a great experience for me. With me being a young kid, it motivated me to see someone work that hard and get drafted out of high school. Anything can be done if you put your mind to it."
The middle of the Lowell Spinners' order, Kendrick Perkins, David Chester, and Seth Schwindenhammer mashed six hits and combined for seven RBI as Lowell claimed their first road win of the season, routing the Connecticut Tigers 11-5 on Wednesday night.
Lowell (2-1) wasted no time putting a damper on Connecticut's opening day festivities as they sent nine men to the plate in the top of the first inning, scoring four runs. Dreily Guerrero led off the game with an infield single, Matt Gedman walked and Perkins singled into right-center to score Guerrero. After a walk to Chester, Schwindenhammer's double play groundball was misplayed by the Tigers shortstop and two runs came in. Hammer moved to third on an infield single by Zach Kapstein and came across to score on a Williams Jerez safety to complete the scoring.
Chester slammed his first homerun of the 2012 season in the third inning, putting a 2-1 fastball over the left field wall to pad the lead and Perkins followed the next inning with his second RBI single of the night, plating Guerrero with the team's sixth run. Gedman scored on a wild pitch after the Perkins single and Chester knocked in his second run in as many innings with an RBI single in the fourth.
Schwindenhammer, who finished third in the New York Penn League last season with nine homeruns, hit his first of the 2012 season, a two-run blast in the fourth.
