    Red Sox RP Jean Machi overcomes shaky outing for fourth save

    Red Sox reliever Jean Machi picked up his fourth save of the season on Monday, but it wasn't without drama. Machi entered the ninth inning with the Red Sox up by two. He allowed the first two batters to reach base safely, one of which came around to score. But Machi was ultimately saved by a terrific catch in right field by Rusney Castillo to end the threat and close out the game, preserving the 4-3 win over the Yankees. Machi has been scored upon in five of his 14 appearances since joining the Red Sox at the July 31 trade deadline. He is a perfect 4-for-4 in save opportunities, however. Despite Monday's rough outing, manager Torey Lovullo is committed to Machi as his closer for the time being.

    Red Sox put RP Jean Machi on ML roster; Daniel Nava DFA'd

    The Red Sox have added right-handed reliever Jean Machi to the Major League roster. Machi was picked up off waivers from the Giants on Tuesday. Machi struggled with the Giants this season, posting a 5.14 ERA over 35 innings. But manager John Farrell explains the cause of Machi's struggles. "His fastball velocity has been consistently between 92 to 94 mph. His damage has come with his slider," Farrell said, per MLB.com. "It hasn't been as sharp as it was the last two years. That's the pitch that we have to hone in on and regain that consistency. "There is a little bit of a challenge bringing him in here with our situation with a need for innings right away with his inactivity. We'll see what he has." Machi had made just one appearance for the Giants since the All-Star break. To make room on the 40-man and 25-man rosters, Daniel Nava has been designated for assignment.
