Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Allows five runs Sunday in loss to Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez allowed five runs on four hits and four walks across 5.1 innings in Sunday's start against the Royals. He struck out one as he fell to 2-6 on the season.

Rodriguez struggled with his command Sunday, as just 54 percent of his pitches went for strikes and he tied a season-high in free passes versus a patient Royals lineup. He only allowed two runs through five innings, but a hit and two walks to begin the top of the sixth laid the framework for a disastrous frame in which Kansas City scored eight times to take a lead they would never relinquish. Rodriguez, who now owns a hefty 5.35 ERA, will have the opportunity to bounce back Saturday versus the Athletics.

Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Blows up in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Barnes allowed three inherited runners to score and was charged with five runs allowed without getting an out in Sunday night's 10-4 loss to the Royals.

Barnes showed much promise over the first four months of the season, but his season has been undermined by a terrible August. He's allowed 12 runs on 12 hits and six walks in 9.2 innings this month. Once considered a possible eighth-inning option, Barnes appears lost. "I think I'm at the point now where I need to sit down and re-evaluate what I'm doing," Barnes told Tim Britton of the Providence Journal. "This is probably one of those portions of your career where you've been in the league long enough where teams have a lot of video and have seen you pitch. They're adjusting to you."

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Bullpen can't clean up mess
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (hamstring) allowed five runs on four hits and four walks while striking out one over 5.1 innings in Sundays' 10-4 loss to the Royals.

Rodriguez, making his first start since suffering a left-hamstring strain, was far from perfect, but he had retired 10-of-11 batters entering a fateful sixth inning, when things disintegrated quickly. When he left, the bases were loaded and Boston was leading, 4-2. Enter the inconsistent bullpen. Matt Barnes allowed all three inherited runners to score, then five additional runs were charged to him. The bullpen is taking the heat Monday morning, but Rodriguez has to own some of this mess. He's prone to big innings and isn't always mentally tough when runners get on base. He's next scheduled to pitch Friday when the Red Sox are in Oakland.

Red Sox's Aaron Hill: Available off bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill exited Saturday's game after injuring his ankle but is available off the bench Sunday if needed, Scott Lauber of ESPN reports.

Despite the tweak of the ankle, there's nothing to suggest the issue is anything to worry about. Given that the veteran infielder splits time anyway, it shouldn't be of concern whether or not he's in the lineup. Unless something further surfaces, consider him good to go moving forward.

Red Sox's Brock Holt: Mans leadoff spot Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holt will enter the lineup at second base and bat leadoff Sunday against the Royals, Ryan Hannable of WEEI.com reports.

With Dustin Pedroia away from the team to tend to a family matter, Holt will get a temporary opportunity to set the table for one of the league's most potent lineups. Pedroia is expected to rejoin the club for their upcoming series with the Rays and reclaim his spot in the lineup as soon as Monday, so Holt's run at the keystone will likely be short lived. However, with Andrew Benintendi (knee) recently hitting the DL, Holt could be in line for a surge in his starts in left field over the next two weeks, though he'll have to battle with Chris Young for those duties.
