  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Returns to lineup

    Verdugo (hamstring) is starting in right field and batting leadoff Friday against the Orioles, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    Hamstring tightness has kept Verdugo on the bench since he was removed from Sunday's game against Kansas City. Now that he's back in action, he'll look to stay hot at the plate after belting four homers across his last 10 games.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Still sitting Wednesday

    Verdugo (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    The 27-year-old will sit for all three games in Tampa Bay after exiting Sunday's matchup versus Kansas City with left hamstring tightness.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Most likely out until Friday

    Verdugo (hamstring) is unlikely to return to the Red Sox's lineup until Friday's game against the Orioles, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

    Verdugo has been ruled out through Tuesday with left hamstring tightness, and while he could return for Wednesday's series finale with the Rays in a best-case scenario, the Red Sox will most likely wait until after Thursday's off day before returning him to the lineup. His expected absence for the series in Tampa should open up right field for Adam Duvall and center field for Wilyer Abreu.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Held out of lineup Monday

    Verdugo (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rays, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    Verdugo was removed from Sunday's game versus the Royals because of left hamstring tightness and wasn't expected to be ready to play a day later, so his absence from the lineup Monday isn't surprising. The good news is that he hasn't yet been placed on the injured list and is considered day-to-day for now. Adam Duvall will cover right field Monday in place of Verdugo.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Moves to leadoff

    Verdugo batted leadoff and went 3-for-5 with two doubles and three runs scored in Friday's 8-3 win over the Yankees.

    Verdugo set the table immediately with a leadoff double to spark Boston's four-run first inning. This was the third time in the last four starts that Verdugo batted leadoff -- all three starts against right-handers. He had been the primary leadoff batter through the first half of the season before Jarren Duran took over those duties against righties and Rob Refsnyder against lefties. However, Duran has been slumping of late and batted seventh Friday. Verdugo is slashing .276/.338/.451 atop the order this season.
