  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Delivers another strong start

    Pivetta (8-5) earned the win Friday against the Guardians after giving up two runs on nine hits with four strikeouts and zero walks over seven innings.

    The right-hander threw 66 of 98 pitches for strikes and generated only five whiffs, but he was able to limit the damage since only one of the nine hits he allowed went for extra bases. It's the third straight victory for Pivetta, and he has a 1.64 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 17:6 K:BB across 22 innings during that stretch. He tentatively lines up for his next start Wednesday in Toronto.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Fans 10 in victory

    Pivetta (7-5) allowed one run on four hits and four walks over seven innings Sunday, striking out 10 and earning a win over the Cardinals.

    Pivetta was tagged with an RBI single off the bat of Harrison Bader in the fourth inning but turned in a clean outing otherwise. He struck out double-digit batters for the second time in his last three outings; the four walks caused him to throw 108 pitches, but he also forced 12 swinging strikes, his highest since May 18. After starting 0-4 through his first five starts, Pivetta is 7-1 with a 61:16 K:BB and a stellar 1.77 ERA over his last nine appearances. He's lined up to start in Cleveland next week.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Dazzles over eight frames

    Pivetta (6-5) earned the win Tuesday against the A's after giving up one run on three hits with three strikeouts and two walks over eight innings.

    The right-hander kept Oakland off the board through seven frames, but Stephen Vogt broke the shutout with a solo homer during the eighth inning. Still, it was another dominant outing for Pivetta, who has a 1.83 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 51:12 K:BB across his past eight outings. He tentatively lines up for a matchup versus the Cardinals on Sunday.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Takes loss Thursday

    Pivetta (5-5) took the loss against the Angels on Thursday, allowing four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out 11 over five innings.

    Pivetta's season-high 11 strikeouts were impressive, and he started out the contest with four scoreless innings. However, Shohei Ohtani broke through against him with a two-run shot in the fifth, and Pivetta was pulled after issuing two straight free passes to begin the sixth. Those walks came back to haunt him as both baserunners were cashed in after he departed. Pivetta gave up more than three earned runs in each of his first three starts this season, but this was the first time he surrendered that many runs in nine starts since. He's posted a 2.45 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 59:14 K:BB across 55 frames while recording a 5-2 record over the nine-game stretch.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Throws seven shutout innings in win

    Pivetta (5-4) earned the win Saturday over the Athletics, allowing two hits and two walks while striking out seven in seven shutout innings.

    Pivetta's streak of quality starts is up to six, and he's earned the win in his last five turns on the hill. He gave up next to nothing Saturday in a dominant performance. The month-long hot streak has dropped his ERA from 7.84 on May 1 to 3.50 on Saturday. The right-hander has added a 1.10 WHIP and 58:21 K:BB through 61.2 innings across 11 starts overall. Pivetta will look to keep things rolling on the road next week against a tougher opponent in the Angels.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Earns fourth consecutive win

    Pivetta (4-4) allowed a run on five hits and three walks while striking out five in six innings to earn the win over the Orioles on Sunday.

    Pivetta posted a 10.03 ERA over his first three starts in 2022, but he's turned things around recently and has logged five consecutive quality starts. The right-hander has been rewarded with wins in his last four outings, and he's logged a 1.59 ERA, 30:6 K:BB and 0.76 WHIP in 34 innings over his last five starts. Pivetta tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Oakland on Saturday.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Quality start in win Tuesday

    Pivetta (3-4) earned the win Tuesday after he tossed six innings, giving up three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five against the White Sox.

    Pivetta held the White Sox off the board over the first three innings before Jose Abreu launched a two-run homer in the fourth frame. He allowed another run in the fifth before pitching a scoreless sixth inning to end his outing. Pivetta has now registered four consecutive quality starts, posting a 1.61 ERA and 0.68 WHIP with 25 strikeouts over 28 innings in those outings. The 29-year-old has won three straight starts and he'll look to make it four when he toes the rubber next, which tentatively lines up to be Sunday versus the Orioles.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Dazzles after leadoff homer

    Pivetta (2-4) earned the win after allowing one run on two hits across nine innings during Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Astros. He finished with eight strikeouts and zero walks.

    Pivetta allowed a leadoff blast to Jose Altuve in the first inning and then proceeded to shut down the Astros' potent offense for the rest of the day. After posting a dismal 7.84 ERA though his first five starts, the 29-year-old right-hander has been dominant over his last three appearances. During that stretch, Pivetta has allowed just two runs across 22 innings while sporting a 20:1 K:BB. His next start is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday's matchup with the White Sox.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Picks up first win

    Pivetta (1-4) allowed one run on three hits and a walk over seven innings Friday, striking out four and earning a win over Texas.

    Pivetta cruised through six shutout innings with little resistance from the Rangers. He threw a wild pitch in the seventh, letting Kole Calhoun break up the shutout after he tripled earlier in the frame. The 29-year-old right-hander has allowed just one run over his last two outings after posting a brutal 7.84 ERA through his first five starts. Pivetta is expected to face the Astros at home next week.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Punches out eight

    Pivetta allowed five hits and no walks while striking out eight across six innings Saturday against the White Sox. He did not factor into the decision.

    Pivetta turned in his best performance of the season, as he generated 14 swinging strikes across 91 total pitches. Also notable is that Pivetta has not walked a batter in either of his last two starts, spanning 10.1 frames. That stands in contrast to his first four appearances of the campaign when he handed out 13 free passes across 16.1 innings. Despite the strong outing, Pivetta still owns a 6.08 ERA in six starts.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Dealt fourth loss

    Pivetta (0-4) was charged with the loss Sunday in Baltimore after allowing three runs on six hits with five strikeouts and zero walks across 4.1 innings.

    Pivetta blanked the Orioles through four frames Sunday, but things fell apart in the fifth as he gave up two runs on three singles and a double before being pulled. The bullpen was unable to bail him out, and one more run came across. It was shaping up to be the right-hander's best start of the season, but he was unable to finish strong and is now tied for the league lead with four losses. Pivetta had 13 walks across his first four starts, so the fact he didn't issue a free pass in Baltimore is a positive step. However, the 29-year-old's 7.84 ERA and 1.84 WHIP will understandably scare off most fantasy managers.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Uneven effort in no-decision

    Pivetta didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Blue Jays, giving up two runs on three hits and four walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out six.

    The right-hander retired the first six batters he faced, but things quickly went sideways for Pivetta after he issued a leadoff walk to Santago Espinal in the third. He ended up needing 98 pitches (60 strikes) to record 14 outs and exited the game with Boston down 2-1, although a rally in the eighth took him off the hook for the loss. Pivetta is impossible to trust on fantasy rosters right now regardless of his matchup, as his 8.27 ERA and 1.96 WHIP through 16.1 innings are well-earned given his ugly 16.7 percent walk rate and 2.20 HR/9.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Takes away positives in loss

    Pivetta (0-3) was charged with the loss after allowing five runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out four over four innings in Wednesday's 6-1 loss to the Blue Jays.

    Pivetta's ERA climbed to 10.03 following his third start, and none of have offered much promise. He's been fighting mechanics and reduced velocity, which reared itself early Wednesday, particularly in Toronto's five-run second inning. His final two innings were better after pitching coach Dave Bush talked to the right-hander about his mechanics, per Christopher Smith of MassLive.com. "Honestly, I believe the last two innings were his best innings so far out of the three outings (this season)," manager Alex Cora said. "Velocity went up. There was some 95, 96 (mph). It seems like he was more aggressive with the fastball." Pivetta will get a chance for revenge in his next scheduled start, which lines up for Monday on the road in Toronto.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Mechanics off in poor start

    Pivetta (0-2) allowed four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out a pair over two innings Friday to take the loss against the Twins.

    Per Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican, manager Alex Cora mentioned after the game that Pivetta's mechanics were off, leading to a drop of velocity and a corresponding drop in effectiveness. That gives some hope that Pivetta could turn things around soon if he corrects the flaw, which he'll need to do to remain in the rotation. After his poor performance Friday, he's now given up eight runs on nine hits (including three homers) in 7.2 innings of work, striking out six while walking five. It's tough to have much confidence in him next week, as he'll face the Blue Jays' loaded offense Wednesday.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Takes loss in season debut

    Pivetta (0-1) was tagged with the loss against the Yankees on Saturday as a result of allowing four runs in 5.2 innings. He yielded four hits and three walks while striking out four.

    Boston staked Pivetta to an early two-run lead, and the right-hander kept the Yankees off the scoreboard for three frames. However, he surrendered a game-tying two-run homer to Anthony Rizzo in the fourth and a two-run shot to Giancarlo Stanton in the sixth. Home runs have been an issue for Pivetta throughout his career, so it's fitting that all four runs scored against him Saturday came by way of the long ball. He'll try to get into the win column in his next outing, which is tentatively scheduled to take place at home against Minnesota late next week.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Makes final spring start

    Pivetta allowed one run on six hits and one walk while striking out six over five innings in Sunday's spring start against the Braves.

    Pivetta made his final Grapefruit League start and is in position to pitch the second game of the season, Saturday, April 9, against the Yankees. He had a lot of traffic, including a hit batsman, but he was touched only by Matt Olson's first-inning solo home run. The right-hander finished spring training with eight runs allowed (six earned) on 15 hits and six walks while punching out 22 batters over 15.2 innings.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Makes third start

    Pivetta allowed three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out five over four-plus innings in Tuesday's spring training start against the Pirates.

    Pivetta took the mound for the third time and clearly didn't have his best stuff. In addition to the three free passes, the right-hander gave up two home runs. He did, however, get his pitch count up to 78, which puts him on schedule with one more Grapefruit League start before facing the Yankees in the second game of the regular season. The plan is for Pivetta to throw six innings the next time out, Dawn Klemish of MLB.com reports.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Roughed up in second start

    Pivetta allowed four runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out six over 3.2 innings in Thursday's spring training game against the Orioles.

    Pivetta dazzled in his first Grapefruit League start but was considerably less effective his second time out. The Orioles tagged him for two solo home runs and plated runs in the second, third and fourth innings. Pivetta has time to make two more starts before taking the ball for the second game of the regular season, April 9 in Yankee Stadium.
