    • Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Won't require surgery
      By RotoWire Staff

      Nunez said he will not require surgery on his injured knee, Rob Bradford of reports. Nunez was dropped from the ALDS roster after aggravating a knee injury in the first inning of Game 1 against the Astros. The MRI results revealed no further damage was done to his knee, so Nunez should be ready to go for spring training next season after taking time to recover in the offseason.

    • Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Dropped from ALDS roster
      By RotoWire Staff

      Nunez (knee) was officially removed from the Red Sox's ALDS roster Thursday, Ian Browne of reports. Nunez went down with an ugly knee injury in the first inning of Thursday's game against the Astros. Though he's technically still able to be re-added to the roster if the Red Sox make the World Series, this injury should effectively end the 30-year-old's season. Chris Young was added to the active roster in Nunez's place.

    • Nunez was removed from Thursday's game after hobbling out of the batter's box during his groundout in the first inning with an apparent knee injury, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Immediately after sending a grounder to third base, Nunez came up lame while trying to sprint out of the box. He collapsed on the way to first base, and spent a few minutes on the ground before being carried off the field by manager John Farrell and a trainer. Since Nunez had been dealing with a knee problem for most of the past month, this is a seriously concerning occurrence that may mark the end of his season. Going into this series, the Red Sox were on the fence about Nunez's status, and it appears as though his knee wasn't completely ready for live action. In his place, the club will likely thrust Hanley Ramirez into the DH spot for the remainder of the game. It's unlikely that he will be able to return to the field this postseason and he may miss some of 2018 as well.

    • Nunez (knee) took 30-35 pitches from Roenis Elias in Monday's simulated game, Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports. Nunez also did some base running as part of Monday's simulated game. The Red Sox will wait to see how his knee responds Tuesday before determining his status for the ALDS, but if everything checks out, he should be cleared to play.

    • Nunez (knee) will have a simulated game Monday at Fenway Park against Roenis Elias, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. If all goes as planned and Nunez progresses through Monday's simulated game without issue, he'll likely be cleared for the start of the ALDS.
