    • Red Sox's Zach Putnam: Sent to minors camp
      By RotoWire Staff

      The Red Sox reassigned Putnam (hamstring) to their minor-league camp Monday, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports. Putnam missed the entire 2018 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but it was the hamstring issue that prevented him from making an appearance during the Grapefruit League. He'll likely stick around at extended spring training to rehab the injury before reporting to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    • Red Sox's Zach Putnam: Not close to returning
      By RotoWire Staff

      Putnam continues to nurse a hamstring injury and isn't close to pitching in a game, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports. Putnam suffered the injury while participating in a drill at the beginning of March, although it's unclear as to when he might return to the mound. "He's feeling better," manager Alex Cora stated. "He's playing catch. He hasn't been able to get back on the mound." While Putnam wasn't expected to win a roster spot entering camp, this injury will make doing so nearly impossible. He should begin the 2019 campaign with Triple-A Pawtucket when healthy.

    • Red Sox's Zach Putnam: Signs with Red Sox
      By RotoWire Staff

      Putnam (elbow) signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports. Putnam missed the entire 2018 season while recover from Tommy John surgery that he underwent in June of 2017. The right-hander should be fully healthy for spring training and ready to compete for a spot in Boston's Opening Day bullpen. Putnam has proven to be an effective reliever over parts of seven major-league seasons, posting a combined 3.20 ERA and 9.6 K/9 across 152 career innings.

    • Zach Putnam: Non-tendered by White Sox
      By RotoWire Staff

      The White Sox declined to tender Putnam (elbow) a contract for 2018, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports. Putnam underwent Tommy John surgery in June and will likely miss at least the first half of 2018. He fared quite well in a small sample at the big-league level in 2017 (1.43 FIP), and he's missed bats at a good clip in recent years, but the White Sox would have had to pay him north of $1.1 million if they had gone to arbitration.
