Top Alex Verdugo News

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Hitless in return

    Verdugo went 0-for-4 in Sunday's 7-1 loss to the Rangers.

    Verdugo was back in the lineup after missing Saturday's game due to an injury suffered during Friday's game, when he fouled a pitch off his foot. He was one of Boston's best hitters early in the season, but Verdugo has struggled in the subsequent three weeks. The outfielder is batting .143 (10-for-70) over the last 18 games.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Back in action Sunday

    Verdugo (foot) is starting in left field Sunday against the Rangers, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    He exited Friday's game with a foot contusion and was absent from Saturday's lineup, but it will end up being a short absence. Verdugo is hitting .176 with zero home runs and zero steals in nine games this month.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Not in Saturday's lineup

    Verdugo (foot) isn't starting Saturday against the Rangers, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

    Verdugo exited Friday's game against the Rangers with a bruised right foot, but he underwent X-rays that came back negative. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available off the bench Saturday, but he should be considered day-to-day for now. Franchy Cordero will shift to left field while Bobby Dalbec starts at first base.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: X-rays negative

    Verdugo's X-rays on his bruised right foot were negative Friday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    The injury forced Verdugo to exit Friday's game against the Rangers early, but it doesn't appear to be a particularly serious one. He'll have a chance to play Saturday if he feels well enough to do so.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Exits with bruised foot

    Verdugo exited Friday's game against the Rangers with a right foot contusion, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Verdugo was lifted for pinch hitter Bobby Dalbec in the top of the seventh inning after going 1-for-3 with an RBI double earlier in the game. As long as his injury remains nothing worse than a bruise, he shouldn't miss too much time, but it's possible his diagnosis gets updated after the game.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Sits for first time in 2022

    Verdugo is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles.

    He'll be getting a well-deserved off day after starting in left field in each of Boston's first 22 games of the season. Recent call-up Jaylin Davis picks up the start in the outfield in place of Verdugo, who has fallen into a 4-for-32 slump at the dish over his last eight games to drop his season average to .238.

    Verdugo went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Twins.

    The 25-year-old continued his strong start to the season, homering for the second time in as many days against Minnesota and the third time this season. Verdugo's humming along with a .296/.375/.667 slash line through eight games with seven RBI, and after posting a career-best 13 homers and 63 RBI in 2021, he could be ready to take a big step forward in the power department.

    Verdugo, who was scratched from Saturday's lineup, will play Sunday instead, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    He will take at-bats on the backfields Saturday instead of playing in the big-league game, so it sounds like he is fully healthy.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Scratched from Saturday's lineup

    Verdugo was scratched from Saturday's lineup against the Twins, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Spring scratches are not always indicators of injury, as there are sometimes late decisions to hit on the backfields instead. Even so, there will likely be clarification from the team regarding Verdugo's status.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Not in Friday's lineup

    Verdugo will sit Friday against the Nationals, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The Red Sox's regular starting nine will be a man down throughout the final series of the season, as there won't be a designated hitter available under National League rules. J.D. Martinez, who typically occupies that spot, will move out to right field on this occasion, pushing Hunter Renfroe to Verdugo's usual spot in center.
