      Red Sox's Roenis Elias: Fans 13 on Wednesday

      Elias allowed two runs on five hits while striking out a career-high 13 batters in 7.2 innings for Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday. Elias has lacked any sort of rhythm, but the left-hander was dealing Wednesday. He was much more efficient than he has been, commanding the fastball, working ahead in the count and for the first time this season, he didn't walk a batter. This one start is an encouraging sign, but the Red Sox aren't ready to entrust him in the big-league rotation based on one good outing.

      Red Sox's Roenis Elias: No mystery for opposing batters

      Elias allowed five runs on 11 hits and two walks in four innings for Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday. Elias has been eminently hittable at Triple-A, having permitted 36 hits in 25 innings -- opponents are raking .343 against him. Along with his 25 walks, we're looking at an unseemly 2.20 WHIP for Elias. It seems hard to believe that the left-hander had been competing for the fifth spot in the rotation during spring training.

      Red Sox's Roenis Elias: Optioned to Triple-A

      Elias was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday, ESPN.com's Scott Lauber reports. Elias' stint with the Red Sox lasted all of two days, with his lone appearance coming Saturday against the Astros. He was blasted in that outing for three runs on four hits and two walks over 1.2 innings and will likely need to get back on track in the minors before the Red Sox give him another look.

      Red Sox's Roenis Elias: Officially recalled Friday

      Elias was officially recalled by the Red Sox on Friday. Elias was reportedly in the mix to take Joe Kelly's spot in the rotation for Sunday's start, but the Red Sox will plug Henry Owens into that role for now. However, Elias will join the big league club to provide another healthy arm in the bullpen. Given his experience as a starter, Elias could be used in a long relief role to eat up innings if one of Boston's starters fails to make it deep into a game.

      Red Sox's Roenis Elias: Will be called up Friday

      The Red Sox will recall Elias on Friday, Alex Speier of the Boston Globe reports. Elias was a candidate to fill the open spot in Boston's rotation that will come up Sunday, but it appears that will go to Henry Owens. Elias will instead be called up to provide an extra arm in a bullpen that was needed for 5.1 innings Thursday and 9.1 frames Tuesday.

      Red Sox's Roenis Elias: In the mix to join starting rotation

      Elias is a candidate to start Sunday at Houston in place of Joe Kelly (shoulder), Brain MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports. Kelly only faced four batters before landing on the DL following Tuesday's game against the Rays. Henry Owens is the likely candidate to take the vacated spot, especially with his next scheduled outing for Triple-A Pawtucket due for Saturday, as he can easily be pushed back a day. Elias pitched 5.2 innings Sunday, giving up two earned runs on seven hits while striking out five for Triple-A Pawtucket. He started 20 games for the Mariners last season, amassing a 4.14 ERA with 1.30 WHIP during 115.1 innings.

      Red Sox's Roenis Elias: Second start for Pawtucket

      Elias allowed two runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out five for Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday. Elias was making his second start for the PawSox and was marginally better Sunday than his first start. So far, he's allowed seven runs (four earned) on 14 hits and seven walks while striking out nine in 9.1 innings. The left-hander will be part of Boston's starting-pitcher depth, along with Henry Owens and Brian Johnson.

      Red Sox's Roenis Elias: Optioned to Triple-A

      The Red Sox optioned Elias to Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday. The Red Sox evaluated Elias as both a starter and reliever this spring, but he gave up 12 earned runs over 10.1 innings and allowed three home runs in his last spring outing, so the team decided that his 2016 campaign would begin in the minors. He could be an option for the big club once he gets back on track.

      Red Sox's Roenis Elias: Pitches in relief again

      Elias pitched in relief Saturday for the second time in three days, giving up six runs on seven hits (three homers) and a walk in 10 batters faced. It looks like the Red Sox wanted to see him in a regular relief role -- something that indicates Steven Wright, not Elias, will be the temporary fill-in for starter Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) -- but it didn't go very well Saturday. Elias has experience as a starter and still has minor-league options left, so Boston could opt to have him stay on a starting track at Triple-A Pawtucket instead of using him in relief at the major-league level. We'll find out the organization's plans Monday when officials meet to discuss the final roster spots.

      Red Sox's Roenis Elias: Pitches in relief Thursday

      Elias pitched a scoreless inning of relief in Thursday's game against the Mets. He struck out two and now has 12 punch-outs in 9.2 spring innings. Elias is still in competition to fill in for Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) in Boston's rotation, insists manager John Farrell, but having him pitch in relief this late in training camp is an indication that the manager has settled on Steven Wright to be the temporary starter. Elias is likely to open the season at Triple-A Pawtucket, where he'll continue to work as a starter and be a depth option if Boston needs a starter.
