  • Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Settles with Boston

    Brasier signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Red Sox on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    2022 saw Brasier record a career-worst 5.78 ERA through 62.1 innings, though his 4.92 K/BB ratio was one of the better marks across the majors. Still, the 35-year-old reliever has a tendency to get hit around more often than not, and holds almost no fantasy value beyond the deepest of leagues.

  • Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Perfect inning to secure hold

    Brasier pitched a perfect inning Sunday to earn a hold against the Yankees.

    Brasier needed just 13 pitches to set down the Yankees in order in the eighth inning and secure his eighth hold of the season Sunday. The veteran reliever has not been sharp most of the season, as he now has a 5.20 ERA and 1.31 WHIP over 45 innings, but he has just three blown saves in 48 appearances and has not allowed a run in six out of his last seven outings. He is a long shot for saves the rest of the season but may lock down a few more holds.

  • Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Collects first save of year

    Brasier struck out two in a perfect 11th inning Friday to record his first save of the season in a 5-4 win over the Yankees.

    John Schreiber, Garrett Whitlock and Tanner Houck -- who blew the save in the ninth but stayed in to pitch a scoreless 10th -- had all seen action already by the time Boston retook the lead in the top of the 11th, leaving Brasier to handle the save opportunity. Given the 34-year-old's 5.40 ERA through six appearances in July, Brasier isn't likely to see consistent high-leverage work after the All-Star break despite getting the job done Friday.

  • Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Recalled by Boston

    Brasier was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on Saturday.

    Brasier struggled with the Red Sox over the first month and a half of the season, posting a 6.28 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 14.1 innings over 18 relief appearances. The right-hander was sent down last week but tossed two scoreless innings in Worcester following his demotion. He'll now rejoin Boston's bullpen after Hansel Robles (back) was placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday.

  • Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Optioned to Triple-A

    Brasier was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Thursday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

    Brasier was optioned to make room on the roster for Michael Wacha (side), who will start Friday's game against Seattle. Brasier began the season effectively, but he has allowed seven earned runs across his last 3.1 innings.

  • Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Suffers loss Sunday

    Brasier (0-2) was tagged with Sunday's loss, allowing four runs on three hits and one walk while striking out three over one inning against the Rangers.

    Brasier was victimized by Adolis Garcia and Kole Calhoun, who back-to-back home runs off the righty reliever. He's pitched well out of the bullpen until this last week. Brasier's 2.45 ERA blew up 6.57 after giving up six runs on three home runs in his last two appearances. Brasier's allowed four jacks over 12.1 innings (2.9 HR/9).

  • Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Serves up home run

    Brasier allowed one run on two hits over one-third of an inning in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Tigers.

    Brasier didn't get tagged with the loss -- that went to Austin Davis -- but he gave up the game-deciding, two-run home run to Javier Baez. The Red Sox have had nothing but tight games thus far, and Brasier has worked three high-leverage situations, all in which he inherited runners. The Baez homer was the first run that's been charged to him, but the reliever has allowed three of six inherited runners to cross the plate. While the Red Sox work without a closer, Brasier is seen as a key piece that could pick up saves.

  • Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Signs one-year deal

    Brasier signed a one-year, $1.4 million contract with Boston on Tuesday, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of reports.

    Brasier missed most of the 2021 season, missing time first with a calf strain and then with a concussion. He returned to post a 1.50 ERA in 12 innings of relief late in the year, dropping his career ERA to 3.39 over parts of five seasons.

  • Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Rejoins Red Sox on Tuesday

    Brasier was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Brasier was sent back to Worcester on Friday, but now he'll rejoin the big club with Garrett Whitlock (pectoral) being placed on the 10-day IL. The right-hander made his season debut in early September after several injuries sidelined him for the first five months of the campaign. He'll resume his big-league season with a 4.15 ERA and 2.54 WHIP through 4.1 innings.

  • Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Optioned to Worcester

    Brasier was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Friday.

    Brasier made five appearances after being activated from the IL in early September, allowing five runs (two earned) on nine hits and two walks across 4.1 innings. He'll head to Worcester with Matt Barnes (illness) returning from the COVID-19 injured list, but Brasier should be a candidate to return to the big leagues if Boston suffers an injury in its bullpen.

  • Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Make season debut

    Brasier allowed one run on two hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning in Friday's 8-5 win over Cleveland.

    This was Brasier's first appearance of the season after a litany of setbacks since the offseason. He suffered a broken pinkie finger during the offseason, then a left calf strain in spring training, followed by a concussion in June. His reinstatement comes at a perfect time, as Boston has four relievers in COVID-19 protocols. He's been a key piece in the Red Sox's bullpen the previous three seasons.

  • Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Returns from injured list

    Brasier (concussion) was activated from the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

    Brasier suffered a calf strain in spring training and sustained a concussion when struck in the head by a line drive while rehabbing, but he's now poised to make his first outing of the season for the Red Sox. The 34-year-old has been a significant bullpen piece for Boston over the past few years and could provide a boost for the final month of the season.

  • Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Activation imminent

    Brasier (concussion) joined the Red Sox in Tampa Bay on Monday for the start of their four-game series with the Rays and could be activated from the 60-day injured list in the coming days, Chad Jennings of The Athletic reports.

    A key reliever for Boston each of the past three seasons, Brasier hasn't debuted for the big club in 2021 after he was slowed by a significant calf strain in spring training before suffering a concussion when he was struck by a line drive in a simulated game in early June. He was cleared to begin a rehab assignment Aug. 10, and over his last four appearances between Triple-A Worcester and Double-A Portland, he tossed four shutout innings while allowing just one baserunner. Whenever the Red Sox add him back to the active roster, expect Brasier to work in a low-leverage role initially.

  • Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Works scoreless rehab inning

    Brasier (concussion) allowed a walk over a scoreless relief inning for Triple-A Worcester on Tuesday.

    This was Brasier's first game action in nearly a year, and the results were encouraging given the erratic performance of Boston's bullpen of late. He walked the first batter he faced before inducing two groundouts, including an inning-ending double play. It's not hard to envision Brasier pitching late in games or giving an occasional breather to closer Matt Barnes, who has suffered three losses in his last four appearances and has a 7.88 ERA in 10 outings since the All-Star break.

  • Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Beginning rehab assignment

    Brasier (concussion) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Worcester on Tuesday, Rob Bradford of reports.

    Brasier's scheduled relief appearance will mark his first of any kind in affiliated ball this season, as he suffered a calf injury late in spring training that kept him on the shelf for the first two months of the campaign. The 33-year-old initially appeared to be trending toward a mid-June return to the Boston bullpen, only to sustain a concussion when he took a line drive to the head in a simulated game. He's since cleared MLB's concussion protocol, but Brasier will likely require several tune-up outings in the minors before Boston activates him from the 60-day injured list.
