Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Apt for lefty-specialist role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad, who didn't pitch well after being acquired by Boston last season and was left off the postseason roster, was retained by the Red Sox because they recognize he can be an effective left-handed reliever, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Abad had a 6.39 ERA over 12.2 innings in 18 games for Boston, but left-handed hitters were just 3-for-23 (.130) against him, suggesting he can still be a useful left-handed specialist. He'll join Robbie Ross as the primary left-handers in Boston's bullpen.

Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Loses arbitration case
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Abad lost his arbitration case and will make $2 million in 2017, the Boston Herald's Evan Drellich reports.

He was asking for $2.7 million but the arbiter sided with the Red Sox, who were offering $2 million. Abad and Robbie Ross will enter the season as Boston's top two lefty relievers, but neither pitcher figures to see much high-leverage work.

Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Will be tendered
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox will tender a contract to Abad, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

Abad, who was left off the postseason roster after an awful two months following his acquisition, is entering the final year of arbitration and figures to make in the neighborhood of $2 million. If he can pitch anything like he did with Minnesota, that Abad would be a bargain.

Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Moving to middle relief
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Abad will move to lower-leverage situations in an attempt to rebuild his confidence, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. "There have been some pitches mislocated in the strike zone that have allowed some hitters back into at-bats," manager John Farrell said. "For the type of stuff that he has, and his overall strike-throwing ability... he's not a guy who is typically wild. We have to get some confidence rolling in his favor."

Farrell hinted at this change after Abad's last outing, in which he allowed two inherited runners and one of his own to score without recording any outs. Robbie Ross moves from the low-leverage, middle relief role to be the late-inning lefty.

Red Sox's Fernando Abad: A bad outing once again
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Abad was charged with a run and let two inherited runners score in Tuesday night's win over Baltimore. In seven games over four innings for Boston, Abad has given up five runs on seven hits and three walks.

It appears Tuesday's outing was the final straw for manager John Farrell, who told Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald that he will stop using Abad in high-leverage situations for now and have Robbie Ross work setup when a left-hander his required. "We're going to have to get some work done to gain a little confidence and get him going," Farrell said. "We've used (the other bullpen lefty Ross) early in the game because he's got multi-inning capability. But we're probably going to have to shift that here a little bit."
