Top Alex Verdugo News

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Brings Sox back briefly

    Verdugo went 2-for-4 with a double and a three-run home run in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Yankees.

    With two strikes on him, Verdugo didn't offer at a 99.4 mph four-seamer from Gerrit Cole, which was called a ball. He then belted the next pitch -- 99.5 mph fastball -- that caught too much of the plate to knot the game at four runs apiece in the sixth inning. After the frame, both Cole and New York manager Aaron Boone were ejected for arguing the pitch before the blast. The homer was Verdugo's 10th and gave him 70 RBI, which ranks second on the team behind Rafael Devers.

    Verdugo went 2-for-4 with a double, one RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 10-5 loss to Minnesota.

The multi-hit effort was his seventh in the last 13 games, a streak in which he is batting a robust .352. On the season, the 26-year-old is slashing .284/.329/.403 as he has been one of the bright spots in what has been a disappointing season for Boston.

Verdugo continues to provide steady hitting in the middle of the order against mostly right-handers.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Doubles twice in three-hit game

    Verdugo went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a walk and two runs scored in Friday's 7-4 win over the Royals.

    Verdugo had gone just 3-for-20 (.150) with nine strikeouts in six games since his last multi-hit effort. The 26-year-old outfielder snapped the slump with a second-inning double, and added another two-bagger in the fourth and a single in the seventh. He's up to a .269/.310/.376 slash line with six home runs, 52 RBI, 41 runs scored, a stolen base and 24 doubles through 101 contests. With Jackie Bradley released and Franchy Cordero optioned to Triple-A Worcester, Verdugo should see the bulk of the starts in right field versus right-handed pitchers.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Sitting versus lefty

    Verdugo is out of the lineup for Thursday's game at Kansas City, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Gets another start as No. 5 hitter

    Verdugo will start in left field and bat fifth in Sunday's game against the Brewers, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    With the Red Sox facing a left-handed starting pitcher (Aaron Ashby) for the second day in a row, the lefty-hitting Verdugo will once again occupy the No. 5 spot in the lineup after having hit either second or third in his prior seven starts. Verdugo has been a solid source of batting average in July (.280), but his counting stats (zero home runs, one stolen base, eight RBI and six runs) over his 25 starts this month have left much to be desired.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Notches first steal of 2022

    Verdugo went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Monday's 10-5 loss to the Rays.

    The Red Sox got busy on the basepaths, going 3-for-3 on steal attempts with Francisco Mejia behind the plate for the Rays, and as a result Verdugo picked up his first pilfer of the year on the back half of a double steal with Xander Bogaerts in the fifth inning. Verdugo has also produced multiple hits in three straight games, continuing a hot streak that has seen the 26-year-old slash .333/.393/.444 over his last 20 contests with two homers, nine runs and 14 RBI.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Idle versus lefty Tuesday

    Verdugo is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rays, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    He'll be one of three lefty-hitting Red Sox regulars on the bench against Tampa Bay southpaw Jeffrey Springs, as Rafael Devers and Jackie Bradley are also getting the night off.

    Shane Bieber held Boston scoreless for five innings Saturday, but Verdugo touched him for a 447-foot, three-run home run in the sixth inning that gave the Red Sox the lead. The long ball was the fifth of the season for the outfielder and just his second since April 16. Verdugo is in the midst of a six-game hitting streak, batting .348/.400/.565 with three extra-base hits, five runs and six RBI over that span.
