News
Pedroia (knee) is back in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mariners.

A recurrence of some soreness in Pedroia's left knee kept him out Friday, but he will be back at second base for Saturday's matchup. Pedroia is hitting .287/.370/.437 over 87 at-bats in May.

News
Rodriguez (4-1) pitched six scoreless innings, allowing five hits and three walks in a 3-0 win over Seattle on Friday. He struck out four.

Rodriguez continues to shut down opposing lineups. In his last seven starts, he's allowed just 11 earned runs over 44 innings pitched. The 24-year-old southpaw's 9.6 K/9 on the season is certainly impressive, and he's showing no signs of slowing up anytime soon. He'll take the mound again Thursday in a road tilt against Baltimore.

Shoulder - Out for the season (Updated - 5/28/17)
News
Hernandez was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Sunday, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

With Hernandez ruled out for the remainder of the season Friday after undergoing surgery on his left shoulder, it was inevitable that he'd move to the 60-day DL when the Red Sox needed to open up a 40-man roster spot. Hernandez's spot will go to reliever Blaine Boyer, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday in a corresponding transaction.

Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Rangers. The homer was his first of the season.

It took 181 plate appearances for Bogaerts to hit his first homer, but that doesn't mean he hasn't produced. Thursday's multi-hit effort was his third straight and 11th in 22 games during the month of May. The shortstop leads Boston in hits, runs, stolen bases, batting average and on-base percentage. His track record has been that of a hitter who heats up as the weather gets warmer and that pattern is playing out once again in 2017.

News
Sandoval (knee) won't join the Red Sox for their three-game road series with the White Sox that begins Monday and will instead continue to rehab with Triple-A Pawtucket, Chad Jennings of the Boston Herald reports.

Manager John Farrell indicated that Sandoval, who has been sidelined since April 24 with the right knee sprain, is still in need of getting more at-bats and innings in the field until the Red Sox feel comfortable activating him. Fortunately for Sandoval, everything seems sound on the health front, so once he's able to log a few more games with Pawtucket, he should be ready to come off the disabled list before the big club's weekend series in Baltimore. Deven Marrero will retain regular duties at third base for the Red Sox until Sandoval is activated.

News
Travis went 2-for-4 with two singles, scored the game-tying run and made a nice defensive play in Wednesday's 9-4 victory over the Rangers.

Travis, who had a third hit taken away by Elvis Andrus, looked polished in the batter's box and has the potential to give Boston an impact bat from the right side. If he could play third base, he'd be ideal, but he's strictly a first baseman. For now, Travis will get his opportunities spelling Mitch Moreland against left-handers, against whom he had a 1.209 OPS in the minors this season.

News
Barnes pitched a scoreless eighth inning as the bridge to closer Craig Kimbrel in Friday's 3-0 win over Seattle.

Barnes has served as the eighth-inning bridge to Kimbrel the last two games. Manager John Farrell's confidence in Barnes wavered a bit when the right-hander had a rough stretch through late April and early May, but he's been dominant the past two weeks. Since May 14, Barnes has pitched 6.1 scoreless innings with 10 strikeouts and no walks.

Betts went 2-for-4 with a walk, two RBI and a run in Wednesday's win over the Rangers.

Remember when Betts started the season in a 3-for-20 skid and was hitting just .267 as of May 6? Yeah, you can be forgiven for forgetting. After all, he's since returned to his normal self, as the last 15 games have seen Betts hit .318 with five homers, two steals, 17 RBI and 17 runs.

News
Bradley went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 6-0 win over the Mariners.

Bradley's slow start to 2017 has been a disappointment. As recently as May 12, he was hitting .171 with a .259 slugging percentage. Some of that may be due a miserable .234 BABIP. but there's some thought he's deserved a better fate. As Mike Petriello of MLB.com explains, exit velocity correlates to batting success. Batters have hit .541 with a 1.074 slugging percentage on balls with an exit velocity of at least 95 mph, and just .218 with a .255 slugging when they hit the ball 94 mph and under. Bradley is one of just 18 players who have hit more than 50 percent of their batted balls at 95 mph or above. It's just a matter of improving his launch angle, which appears to be happening lately. He's gone 11-for-39 (.282) with three doubles and three home runs in his last 11 games.

News
Marrero went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and three strikeouts in Boston's 6-2 win over Texas on Thursday.

Marrero has stabilized third base defensively for Boston, starting the last 11 games there, but an offensively significant night remains a rarity. The homer was his first of the season and just his third extra-base hit. His .518 OPS won't play over the long haul but he will be the primary third sacker until Pablo Sandoval (knee) is ready to be activated off the disabled list. Even then, the position has been a cipher and will remain in a state of flux.

News
Leon will start at catcher and bat eighth Sunday against the Mariners, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

The pendulum has been swinging in Leon's direction lately in the Red Sox's catching timeshare, with the switch-hitting backstop garnering his fourth nod in six games Sunday. Leon has been unable to match the impressive numbers he posted in the second half of the 2016 campaign, but he's been a decent producer in two-catcher mixed leagues or AL-only leagues, contributing a .245 average to go with four homers and 15 RBI.

Price (elbow) will make his season debut Monday against the White Sox, Tim Britton of The Providence Journal reports.

Despite struggling thus far through his pair of minor-league rehab starts (9.53 ERA through 5.2 innings), the Red Sox feel Price is finally ready to rejoin the big-league rotation. Manager John Farrell noted Price will be on a tighter leash than normal, so that may be something to keep in mind before confidently deploying him. Price, who compiled a 17-9 record to go along with his 3.99 ERA and 228 strikeouts last season (230 innings), is scheduled to matchup against Dylan Covey in his 2017 debut.

Blaine Boyer

News
The Red Sox purchased Boyer's contract from Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday.

Boyer attended spring training with the Braves as a non-roster invitee, but after being informed he wouldn't make the Opening Day roster, he requested his release and inked a minor-league deal with the Red Sox in April. After compiling a 3.14 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 14.1 innings in relief with Pawtucket, Boyer will be rewarded with a promotion to the big club, replacing Brian Johnson on the active roster. It's not expected that Boyer will see high-leverage work out of the bullpen initially, but with the Red Sox short on capable middle-relief options, he could move up the pecking order quickly if he's able to find success in his initial appearances.

News
Ramirez is taking groundballs at first base but doesn't have a target date to start playing defense again, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

Ramirez has missed out on at-bats when Boston has taken trips to National League parks, and he's battled a few health issues early in the year. Basically replacing the retired David Ortiz as the nearly everyday designated hitter, Han-Ram has played just once game at first base this year. It may take a late-season push of manning first to retain eligibility there in many fantasy leagues this year.

News
Pomeranz allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out 11 over six innings in Thursday's 6-2 win over Texas.

Pomeranz totaled just 10 innings in his previous three starts, including a four-inning outing five days ago after which he and manager John Farrell had a heated discussion in the dugout. There was no such acrimony Thursday, as the left-hander went six innings for the first time in five starts and delivered an efficient 96-pitch, bullpen-saving effort. His next start is scheduled for Wednesday on the road against the White Sox and Mike Pelfrey.

News
Vazquez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mariners, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Despite turning in multi-hit efforts in his last two starts to lift his season batting average to .350, Vazquez will still find himself on the bench for the fourth time in six contests. Vazquez's offensive numbers have been far more impressive than fellow backstop Sandy Leon, but manager John Farrell seems committed to getting both catchers regular work. For that reason, Vazquez may only be worth keeping active in deeper mixed or AL-only leagues.

Kimbrel pitched a clean ninth inning on Friday to earn the save in a 3-0 win over Seattle.

His ERA now stands at a microscopic 0.83 on the season, and he continues to mow batters down at a tremendous clip. He remains one of the elite closers in the game and is as reliable as they come when looking for saves in fantasy; he's now 13-for-14 in save chances on the campaign.

Sale (5-2) gave up four runs (three earned) over 7.1 innings in a win over the Rangers on Wednesday. He allowed six hits and a walk while striking out six.

Sale's offense had lain dormant for much of the game, but it awoke with a seven-run seventh inning that allowed him to leave a winner. His first season in Boston has been incredible so far -- this game broke a string of eight consecutive double-digit-strikeout efforts that stretched all the way back to April 10. Sale is the MLB leader in strikeouts by an enormous margin, as he has 101; the second-ranked Zack Greinke has just 78.

Rutledge started at second base in place of the injured Dustin Pedroia (knee) on Friday and went 1-for-4 with an RBI and run scored in a 3-0 win over Seattle.

Rutledge has become an indispensable roster piece now that Brock Holt (vertigo) has been shut down indefinitely and Marco Hernandez has undergone season-ending shoulder surgery. Rutledge will go forward as Boston's utility infielder. The Red Sox also have Deven Marrero to fill a similar role, but Rutledge has the more threatening bat.

Holt will be shut down indefinitely until his vertigo symptoms have completely subsided, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

He saw a specialist in Pittsburgh recently, and it has since been decided that Holt will be out indefinitely as he recovers from vertigo. With Holt gone, the Red Sox are missing a versatile cog off the bench who can play both middle infield spots and both corner outfield spots.
