Red Sox's Heath Hembree: No relief in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hembree allowed two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out one in Sunday's 8-3 loss to Detroit.

Hembree's been pretty good this season when pitching clean innings, but has had a problem with inherited runners. He came on in the fifth inning with one out and the bases loaded Sunday and then promptly served up an opposite field grand slam to Justin Upton. For the season, Hembree has allowed 13 of 23 inherited runners to cross the plate.

Red Sox's Heath Hembree: Career year for Boston reliever
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hembree has allowed 11 runs on 32 hits over 27.2 innings this season for the Red Sox.

Boston has trusted their leads in late innings to Hembree, allowing him to rack up 11 holds on the season. He has a low walk rate, only handing out free passes to 1.6 hitters per nine innings while striking out 9.1 in the same amount of time. If the season were to end today, both of those would be career bests for the right-hander. The high strikeout rate is a result of the extra velocity he's been able to put on his pitches this year, with his fastball averaging a career high 94.7 MPH. The results this year for Hembree mean he probably won't lose playing time anytime in the near future, making him a safe bet in deeper leagues.

Red Sox's Heath Hembree: Terrible in Tuesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hembree allowed three runs on three hits in a third of an inning in Tuesday's 11-7 loss to the Brewers.

The right-hander has been pretty good for Boston, pitching in all kinds of situations and was in an ideal spot with four straight right-handed batters due up. But it just wasn't his night, as he allowed a couple of hard hits and hit a batter before lefty Nick Franklin stroked a two-run, pinch-hit double. His ERA jumped from 1.15 to 2.81 after the outing.

Red Sox's Heath Hembree: Throws multiple relief innings Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hembree allowed one hit and one walk while striking out five over 3.1 scoreless innings in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Orioles.

Hembree came on early to replace an ineffective Steven Wright and shut down the Orioles' bats, including a big strikeout of Manny Machado to strand two inherited runners in the fourth. Manager John Farrell is not afraid to use Hembree at any point in the game but traditionally he's more effective against right-handed batters. That worked out well for Hembree on Saturday as the O's had just one left-handed hitter in their lineup.

Red Sox's Heath Hembree: Out of eighth-inning mix
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hembree walked two batters and allowed two runs in the eighth inning of Friday's 6-5 loss to the Tigers.

Hembree cruised through his first two batters, striking out both, before ceding a couple of free passes that came around to score after he'd been pulled from the game. As a result of the bullpen's eighth-inning meltdown Friday, manager John Farrell said Matt Barnes will take over as the primary eighth-inning reliever when he returns from a bereavement leave Sunday, according to Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe. How Farrell navigates the eighth Saturday is an open question that depends on the game situation.
