      Red Sox's Darwinzon Hernandez: Allows runs in return

      Darwinzon Hernandez allowed two runs on one hit and two walks while striking out one in two-thirds of an inning in Friday's 6-5 loss to the Yankees.Hernandez returned to the lineup after spending time on the injured list due to a shoulder injury. He thrived as a reliever during the second half of 2019 and was expected to be an important setup piece in 2020, but COVID-19 got in the way. A starter in the minors, Hernandez could have served in that role for a team that needed starters. His role for 2021 depends on how the left-hander finishes 2020 and Boston's offseason roster construction.

      Red Sox's Darwinzon Hernandez: Making good progress

      Darwinzon Hernandez (shoulder) resumed playing catch last week and is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday in Philadelphia, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.Hernandez was diagnosed with a sprained SC joint in his left shoulder and was subsequently placed on the injured list Aug. 31, but the Boston Red Sox never seemed to fear he would be in store for a lengthy absence. However, Hernandez had seen his velocity decline a couple ticks in his final relief appearance prior to being shut down, so the Red Sox may need to see him make progress on that front in his subsequent throwing sessions before the team considers activating him. Boston had planned to give Hernandez a look as a starter at some point in the second half of the season, but the injury may put those plans on hold until 2021.

      Red Sox's Darwinzon Hernandez: Tosses two scoreless frames in relief

      Darwinzon Hernandez struck out two over two scoreless innings and collected a hold Tuesday in the Boston Red Sox's 9-7 win over the Blue Jays. He scattered two hits and a walk in the appearance.Rather than saving Hernandez until Wednesday to work as a piggyback pitcher behind starter Colten Brewer, the Red Sox elected to have him cover a couple innings in middle relief Tuesday. The hard-throwing lefty was able to keep his spotless ERA intact, pumping in 23 of his 36 pitches for strikes while stranding all three of the baserunners he put on. Red Sox manager Ron Roenicke suggested after Tuesday's win that Kyle Hart -- who was tagged for six runs in 3.1 innings before departing -- may not be guaranteed any future starts, which could pave the way for Hernandez to enter the rotation as soon as next week. Since Hernandez has maxed out at 40 pitches over his two long-relief outings this season, he would likely have a workload restriction if the Red Sox decide to give him a look as a starter.

      Red Sox's Darwinzon Hernandez: Earns first big-league win

      Darwinzon Hernandez (1-0) pitched two innings while allowing a hit, walking one and striking out three as he recorded his first major-league win Friday against the Orioles.Hernandez entered the game in the fifth after Colton Brewer opened up with four shutout innings. The 24-year-old lefty didn't face much pressure in his 2020 debut as the Boston Red Sox were already up 6-0 by the time Hernandez stepped on the mound. Regardless, the tandem of Hernandez and Brewer was pretty effective and could force manager Ron Roenicke to try it out at least once more next week against the Blue Jays.
