    • Red Sox's Heath Hembree: Effective in 2017
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hembree accrued a 3.63 ERA with 70 strikeouts across 62 innings this season with Boston. After an impressive showing in 2016, Hembree took a small step back this season. His ERA increased by nearly a whole point from last year (2.65 to 3.63). Despite this, the 28-year-old recorded 14 holds in the regular season, and his K/9 increased substantially from 8.29 in 2016 to 10.16 in 2017. Hembree should have the opportunity to pitch some key innings in the playoffs for the Red Sox, as they will face the Astros in the ALDS.

    • Red Sox's Heath Hembree: Struggling to keep leads
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hembree has 49 strikeouts in 45.2 innings this season. The strikeout rate is up from last season, when he fanned 47 in 51 innings. Unfortunately, the ERA is up this season as well at 3.74 from the 2.65 mark from 2016. At the moment, Hembree is in a bit of a funk, having blown two leads while posting a 4.09 ERA and 1.55 WHIP since he recorded his last hold June 26.

    • Red Sox's Heath Hembree: Holds lead for Sale
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hembree induced an inning-ending double-play grounder during his two-thirds of an inning in Monday's 4-1 win over the Twins. Hembree's had difficulty with inherited runners this season, but that was not the case Monday when he relieved Chris Sale, who left with two men on and one out. Hembree got Chris Gimenez to ground out and helped preserve the win for Sale.

    • Red Sox's Heath Hembree: No relief in Sunday's loss
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hembree allowed two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out one in Sunday's 8-3 loss to Detroit. Hembree's been pretty good this season when he gets to start innings, but he's had a problem with inherited runners. He came on in the fifth inning with one out and the bases loaded Sunday, and promptly served up an opposite-field grand slam to Justin Upton. For the season, Hembree has allowed 13 of 23 inherited runners to cross the plate.

    • Hembree has allowed 11 runs on 32 hits over 27.2 innings this season for the Red Sox. Boston has trusted its leads in late innings to Hembree, allowing him to rack up 11 holds on the season. He has a low walk rate, only handing out free passes to 1.6 hitters per nine innings while striking out 9.1 in the same amount of time. If the season were to end today, both of those would be career bests for the right-hander. The high strikeout rate is a result of the extra velocity he's been able to put on his pitches this year, with his fastball averaging a career-high 94.7 MPH. The results this year for Hembree mean he probably won't lose playing time anytime in the near future, making him a safe bet in deeper leagues.
