Position Breakdown

Injuries
Knee - Expected to be out until at least Apr 25 (Updated - 4/23/17)
News
Pedroia (knee, ankle) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his left leg Monday in Boston, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

Pedroia will miss his second straight game Sunday against the Astros while he deals with swelling and soreness in the knee and ankle, and there seems to be some growing fear that he could require a trip to the disabled list. The Red Sox initially hoped that Pedroia would only need a day or two to recover from the injury he suffered Friday night, but his swelling hasn't subsided to the extent the team expected. Monday's MRI should provide the Red Sox with a better idea of the extent of Pedroia's injury, but if it's determined that a DL stint is necessary, Marco Hernandez would likely take over as the club's everyday second baseman with Brock Holt (vertigo) and Josh Rutledge (hamstring) also sidelined.

News
Ramirez went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Boston's 6-2 win over Baltimore on Sunday.

Hidden beneath the early-season storylines of the flu and David Price's elbow injury has been Boston's lack of home runs. The Red Sox entered Sunday's game last in all of baseball with just eight -- they're still last after a three-homer explosion Sunday. Ramirez's first-inning homer was his first of the season and leaves him with a meager .306 slugging percentage after 15 games.

News
Pomeranz (1-1) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four over 5.1 innings to take the loss Friday against the Orioles.

Although Pomeranz performed admirably on the road at Camden Yards, he wasn't given a single run of support, resulting in his first loss of the season. He's now pitched well in two of his three starts, and despite a 4.60 ERA, he should be able to pile up a solid number of wins, as his offense is sure to perform better than they did in this contest. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Yankees.

News
Rodriguez (1-1) allowed one hit and five walks while striking out seven over six shutout innings in Sunday's 6-2 win over Baltimore.

The left-hander benefited from a four-run explosion of offense in the first inning when Boston's power bats woke up. Rodriguez took it from there, retiring the first nine Orioles he faced while not allowing a hit until the fifth. He tired in the sixth, walking the bases the loaded before getting out of it unscathed. After a couple of middling starts to open the season, this was the best Rodriguez has looked. He's next scheduled to pitch Saturday at home against the Cubs.

News
Hernandez started at second base in place of the injured Dustin Pedroia (knee) on Saturday and went 1-for-3 in a 4-2 loss to Baltimore, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Hernandez has started nine times this season and four of the past five games. The Red Sox coaching staff is developing more faith in the 23-year-old, who is hitting .290 while getting starts at second base, third base and shortstop. Manager John Farrell said Hernandez has shown the bat speed to handle quality pitching and needed defensive versatility. He'll be the primary backup at three positions while Brock Holt (vertigo) is on the 10-day disabled list.

Shoulder - Expected to be out until at least May 15 (Updated - 4/23/17)
News
Thornburg (shoulder) remains limited to throwing long toss and has yet to resume mound work, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

It's now been a full month since Thornburg last threw off a mound, and with bullpen sessions seemingly not imminent for the 28-year-old, it looks like his season debut could still be several weeks away. While Thornburg has been out, Matt Barnes has stepped up to serve as the primary setup man for closer Craig Kimbrel.

Bogaerts (thumb) is back in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Orioles.

A thumb issue kept Bogaerts out of the lineup Friday, but he was able to come in as a defensive replacement at shortstop late in the game. He'll lead off Saturday with the Red Sox facing left-hander Jayson Aquino. Bogaerts has just one extra-base hit on the year, but he's getting on base at an impressive .373 clip.

Benintendi went 5-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI in Boston's 6-2 win over Baltimore on Sunday.

A recharged Benintendi came out strong after getting a day off Saturday. The five-hit game was the first of his career, and he was the first in MLB to accomplish the feat this season. The 22-year-old outfielder leads Boston with 25 hits and a .347 batting average.

News
Sandoval left Sunday's game with a sprained knee, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

At this point in time, the Red Sox are viewing Sandoval as day-to-day. The team has Monday off, so Sandoval will have extra time to rest. However, if he has to miss additional time, look for Marco Hernandez or Steve Selsky to fill in at the hot corner. Prior to leaving Sunday's game, Sandoval had gone 0-for-2 and drawn a walk.

News
Kimbrel came on to get the final out and notch his seventh save in Boston's 6-2 win over Baltimore on Sunday.

Fernando Abad had been brought in to finish off what looked like an easy win but was tagged for three hits and a run before Kimbrel got the dangerous Manny Machcado to pop up. Kimbrel has not generated any tense moments for Boston since his scary save April 9 in Detroit. The right-hander has struck out 12 and walked none over his last 6.1 innings.

Matt Barnes, #68

News
Barnes was ejected from Sunday's 6-2 win in Baltimore after a pitch that sailed up and in to Manny Machado, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports. The pitch was viewed as a retaliation for what Boston perceived as Machado's reckless slide into second base Friday that injured Dustin Pedroia (calf).

The Red Sox had been simmering since Friday, and we expected them to take revenge at some point, but it never happened Saturday. It wasn't until Sunday's eighth inning, in what could have been Machado's final at-bat of the series, that Boston retaliated. The ball sailed toward Machado's head, which is not typically how frontier justice is handled in baseball, and the Orioles third baseman was clearly displeased with its location. Making the situation somewhat bizarre was Pedroia -- who could be seen from Boston's dugout -- telling Machado that it was the team's decision to throw at him, not Pedroia's. At any rate, Barnes could be facing some disciplinary action.

Heath Hembree, #37

4151.02.65047
 
News
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.

Chris Sale, #49
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
1710226.23.3445233
 
News
Sale allowed four hits and a walk while striking out 13 over eight innings in Thursday's 4-1 extra-inning win over Toronto.

A potential win was negated when closer Craig Kimbrel allowed a game-tying run in the ninth. What Sale has done through four starts with his new team is remarkable. The Red Sox have supported him with a mere four runs over the 29.2 innings he's pitched -- Sale has yet to pitch with a two-run cushion -- and he took the mound with a lead in just six of the 30 innings he's started. The left-hander has handled the pressure of a tight game flawlessly, putting the Red Sox in position to win three of his four starts.

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.

Bradley went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Orioles.

Bradley, who has hits in both games since being activated off the disabled list, was moved up to second in the order with both Dustin Pedroia (knee) and Andrew Benintendi (rest) out of the lineup. The question entering the 2017 season was whether or not the power surge (26 home runs) that Bradley enjoyed last year was real or not.

Young went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a walk during Saturday's loss to Baltimore.

The veteran outfielder is sporting a .245/.344/.283 slash line and projects to see a decline in playing time with Jackie Bradley Jr. back from a knee injury. Still, Young has an impressive track record against southpaws with a .405 wOBA over 273 plate appearances dating back to the 2015 season. He's on the DFS radar whenever Boston faces a lefty.

News
Leon is out of the lineup Sunday against the Orioles, Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

After recording five hits in 10 at-bats in the Red Sox's first two games of the season, Leon has experienced a major slump at the dish, going 4-for-36 (.111 average). Leon's ongoing struggles may have paved the way for Christian Vazquez to turn the catching situation into a timeshare, as Vazquez will now pick up his third start in the last six games.

Steven Wright, #35

WLIPERABBK
136156.23.3357127
 
News
Wright (1-2) allowed four runs on nine hits over 3.2 innings in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Orioles.

It all unraveled quickly for Wright, who cruised through three innings before the Orioles reached him for six hits, including two home runs in the fourth. The knuckleballer, who permitted 12 homers over 156.2 innings in 2016, has already been tattooed for seven long balls in 17.2 innings this season. And the hits are up, too, as Wright is ceding 16.8 hits per nine innings compared to 7.9 a year ago. It's hard to pinpoint what exactly is causing him to be so hittable in 2017, but as Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal points out, with visual aid from the invaluable BrooksBaseball.net, the movement of Wright's knuckler isn't where it was prior to his shoulder injury last season. "I just don't feel like they have the violence they used to have last year," Wright said. "It's not as unpredictable as it was last year before I got hurt."

Hamstring - Expected to be out until at least Apr 25 (Updated - 4/20/17)
News
Rutledge (hamstring) was sent to Portland on Monday to finish his rehab assignment, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

Rutledge has played four rehab games with Triple-A Pawtucket -- going 1-for-9 with a homer and a 3:3 BB:K -- but with the PawSox on an off-day Monday, Rutledge will head to Double-A Portland in an attempt to speed up his return to the majors. If Dustin Pedroia (knee) or Pablo Sandoval (knee) require a trip to the DL, Rutledge could serve as a replacement given he is fully healthy.

News
Price (elbow) is scheduled to throw 45-to-50 pitches in a bullpen session Monday, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

Assuming he feels fine coming out of Monday's workout, it will likely be the final bullpen session for Price before he's cleared to head out on a rehab assignment in the minors. Since Price was sidelined throughout Grapefruit League play with the elbow soreness, he'll likely need several starts across multiple affiliates in order to build up his arm strength. It's possible he won't be activated from the disabled list until mid-May.

Holt was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday due to a bout of vertigo, Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports.

It's unclear when the issue cropped up, but it may explain why he's played so sparingly this season. A timetable for his return is also murky given that the vertigo wasn't mentioned until now, but fortunately for the Red Sox, Jackie Bradley got back to full health in time to replace Holt on the big-league roster. More information on Holt's status should come forth relatively soon.
