Brasier allowed one run on two hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning in Friday's 8-5 win over Cleveland.

This was Brasier's first appearance of the season after a litany of setbacks since the offseason. He suffered a broken pinkie finger during the offseason, then a left calf strain in spring training, followed by a concussion in June. His reinstatement comes at a perfect time, as Boston has four relievers in COVID-19 protocols. He's been a key piece in the Red Sox's bullpen the previous three seasons.
