    • Red Sox's Brian Johnson: To be left off ALDS roster
      By RotoWire Staff

      Johnson will not make Boston's roster for the ALDS, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports. Johnson only pitched 12 innings during the month of September, with a majority of those coming as a middle-relief option in the bullpen. Though manager Alex Cora has yet to completely set his roster for Friday's series opener against the Yankees or Athletics, he already told Johnson that he will not be one of the pitchers carried in this round of the postseason.

    • Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Quick exit in spot start
      By RotoWire Staff

      Johnson (4-5) took the loss Friday as the Red Sox fell 11-6 to the Yankees, giving up two runs on three hits and two walks over three innings while striking out two. The southpaw labored in his first start since Sept. 2, needing 66 pitches (38 strikes) to record only nine outs, and he kicked off a four-homer barrage by the Yankees when Gary Sanchez took him deep in the third inning. Johnson will be ticketed for the bullpen in the playoffs, but his 5.26 ERA in 39.1 innings since the beginning of August -- inflated by a 2.3 HR/9 -- doesn't suggest he'll have a significant role.

    • Johnson will make a spot start against the Yankees on Friday, Chad Jennings of The Athletic reports. Following Johnson during the three-game set will be Nathan Eovaldi and Rick Porcello. This will mark Johnson's first start since Sept. 2 when he only lasted 1.1 innings against the White Sox. On the year, he's logged a 4.11 ERA and 1.42 WHIP with 85 strikeouts in 96.1 innings. During his latest relief appearance, he posted three scoreless frames versus Cleveland on Saturday.

    • Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Pulled after 1.1 innings
      By RotoWire Staff

      Johnson (4-4) allowed four runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out two across 1.1 innings as he was saddled with the loss Sunday against the White Sox. Johnson was knocked around early, surrendering two runs in the first and two more in the second. He was removed from the ballgame after recording just four outs on 38 pitches (28 strikes). The 27-year-old lefty hasn't lasted past the fifth inning in his last three outings, allowing eight runs through 10 innings while striking out eight over that span. With Chris Sale (shoulder) hopeful to return sometime next weekend, Johnson could return to a bullpen role in the near future.

    • Red Sox's Brian Johnson: Chased early again
      By RotoWire Staff

      Johnson gave up one run on five hits and one walk while striking out three over 4.1 innings Tuesday against the Marlins. He did not factor in the decision. The southpaw has now gone exactly 4.1 innings while striking out three in back-to-back starts. While he has spent a large portion of the season in the bullpen, Johnson has also made 11 starts with his lone quality start coming all the way back on April 2 in Miami. His next start is scheduled for Sunday on the road against the White Sox.
