News
Porcello (1-3) gave up three runs (two earned) on five hits and four walks while striking out nine over 6.2 innings in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Yankees.

He threw 73 of 118 pitches for strikes while striking out a season-high nine, but with Luis Severino firing goose eggs opposite him, the two-run homer Porcello served up to Aaron Judge in the second inning was two runs too many. The 28-year-old righty will try to get back in the win column Monday at home against the Orioles.

News
Hernandez started at third base and went 0-for-3 in Thursday's 3-0 loss to the Yankees.

With Dustin Pedroia back in action, Hernandez was moved from second to third base, a spot where the Red Sox rank 28th in MLB with a .189 batting average and -0.4 WAR. Pablo Sandoval (knee) is on the 10-day disabled list and Hernandez will be part of the relief crew at the hot corner. Josh Rutledge and the newly acquired Chase D'Arnaud also bring gloves that can play third base.

Injuries
Shoulder - Expected to be out until at least May 25 (Updated - 4/25/17)
News
Manager John Farrell indicated that Thornburg (shoulder) could soon begin pitching in rehab games, Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports. "We're hopeful that's in the [not-too-distant] future," Farrell said.

The Red Sox are still limiting Thornburg to taking part in long toss from 150 feet, but it sounds like there's growing momentum for him to advance to the next phase of his throwing program. If Thornburg is given clearance to throw bullpen sessions in the coming days, he'd likely begin a rehab assignment soon thereafter. According to Drellich, Farrell suggested that because Thornburg has been sidelined since late February while battling a shoulder impingement, the right-hander will essentially need to go through spring training all over again. That likely means he'll need around seven or 10 rehab appearances before being activated from the disabled list, so Thornburg is probably trending toward a late-May return, at the earliest.

Injuries
Knee - Expected to be out until at least May 4 (Updated - 4/25/17)
News
Sandoval (knee) is without a timetable for a return to action, Alex Speier of the Boston Globe reports.

Sandoval is already reporting progress just two days after suffering the injury, but the Red Sox will need to see more improvement before they guess at a possible return date for the third baseman. He will be eligible to return as soon as May 4. Manager John Farrell will deploy a Marco Hernandez/Josh Rutledge platoon at the hot corner while Sandoval is on the mend.

Injuries
Elbow - Expected to be out until at least Jun 10 (Updated - 4/27/17)
News
Smith (elbow) suffered a setback and has not pitched off a mound in two weeks, the Providence Journal's Tim Britton reports.

Smith was transferred to the 60-day DL earlier Thursday, and this offers some explanation as to why. He had been progressing with bullpen sessions, but clearly something has caused the Red Sox to take it slow with him. The 27-year-old is still long tossing, but he is not expected back for quite a while.

Suspension - Suspended until Apr 30 (Updated - 4/26/17)
News
Barnes dropped his appeal and will start serving his four-game suspension Wednesday against the Yankees, the Boston Globe's Alex Speier reports.

He will be eligible to return to action Sunday against the Cubs after serving the suspension he received for throwing at Manny Machado's head as retaliation for a slide that injured Dustin Pedroia. Barnes has a 3.60 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 11 strikeouts in 10 innings. Craig Kimbrel remains the Red Sox's closer, but with Barnes and Tyler Thornburg (shoulder) out, Heath Hembree, Joe Kelly and Robbie Ross should see more high-leverage looks.

News
Sale allowed three runs (two earned) on eight hits and struck out 10 over eight-plus innings in Thursday's 3-0 loss to the Yankees.

The Red Sox offense has gone silent, managing just 13 runs and a .202 batting average over the last seven games, including a mere one run in 18 innings against the Yankees. The offense has been a recurring theme with Sale being a special victim. The left-hander has a 1.19 ERA over five starts but has been given four runs of support while he's been on the mound (37.2 innings). Sale will hope Boston's bats are improved by the time he makes his next start Tuesday at home against the Orioles.

News
Betts went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and three RBI during Sunday's win over Baltimore.

Betts has caught fire over his past 10 games with seven runs, two homers, 11 RBI, three stolen bases and a .390/.444/.634 slash line. His ability to move the needle across all fantasy categories makes him an elite asset and high-end target in daily contests when Boston draws a favorable matchup.

News
Rutledge is not in the lineup Thursday against the Yankees, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

With Dustin Pedroia (knee) back at second base, Marco Hernandez will slide over to the hot corner against right-handed hurlers while Rutledge heads to the bench. Pablo Sandoval (knee) should see the bulk of starts at third against right-handers when he is activated from the DL, though Rutledge should continue to start at third against left-handers.

Elbow - Expected to be out until at least May 15 (Updated - 4/23/17)
News
Price (elbow) threw the ball well in Wednesday's bullpen session and will face hitters Saturday, WEEI's Ryan Hannable reports.

The extent of this news is that Price did not suffer a setback in Wednesday's session, as he was always going to face hitters on Saturday as long as the bullpen went off without a hitch. More concrete information about the next steps in his rehab should be available after he faces hitters.

News
Holt (vertigo) is set to begin his rehab assignment at Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

His vertigo has kept him on the shelf since April 21, but Holt is ready to get back into game action. The Red Sox organization will start him out slow, playing him at DH to start his rehab assignment before deploying him in the field. Once Holt logs some innings in the field, the Red Sox figure to activate him shortly thereafter. His return will help a Boston infield that has been ravaged by injury early in the season.
