Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Recalled by Red Sox
Winckowski was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on Saturday.
Winckowski was sent to the minors in early September, and he posted a 3.77 ERA and 1.81 WHIP in 14.1 innings over three appearances following his demotion. He should serve as a multi-inning option out of Boston's bullpen over the final few games of the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Sent back to Triple-A
The Red Sox optioned Winckowski to Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Reliever Zack Kelly (personal) was reinstated from the paternity list and will assume Winckowski's spot on the active roster after the rookie right-hander was summoned from Triple-A to make a spot start Sunday. Winckowski took a no-decision in Boston's 5-2 win over Texas, covering four innings and striking out three while allowing two earned runs on three hits and three walks. The Red Sox currently have a vacancy in their rotation with Kutter Crawford (shoulder) recently joining Nathan Eovaldi (shoulder) on the injured list, but a favorable schedule will allow Boston to get by with only four starters until at least Sept. 24....

Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Last four innings in no-decision
Winckowski allowed two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out three over four innings in a 5-2 win Sunday against Texas. He did not factor into the decision.
Winckowski tossed at least 20 pitches in three of his four innings and was removed after throwing 82 pitches (47 strikes), with the Red Sox leading 5-2. Both runs against him came in the first inning, as the Rangers put together a walk, two hits and an RBI groundout. He's struggled to strike out batters at the big-league level and Sunday was just the second time in his last seven starts for Boston that he fanned more than two batters. The 24-year-old was recalled from Triple-A Worcester before the game to fill in for Kutter Crawford (shoulder) and, should he continue in Crawford's spot in the rotation, his next start will likely be next weekend in Baltimore. It's no guarantee Winckowski will get another turn, as the Red Sox could utilize Thursday's off day to deploy a four-man rotation.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Back in majors, starting Sunday
The Red Sox recalled Winckowski from Triple-A Worcester on Sunday. He'll start Sunday's series finale with the Rangers, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.
The 24-year-old was sent down to Worcester on Aug. 24 after he surrendered six runs over 2.2 frames to Toronto, but he's now back in the majors with Kutter Crawford (shoulder), who was scheduled to start Sunday, moved to the injured list. Since Winckowski hasn't seen game action in the minors since last weekend, he shouldn't face any major workload restrictions Sunday as he steps into Boston's rotation.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Demoted after rough start
The Red Sox optioned Winckowski to Triple-A Worcester on Wednesday.
For the second time in a week, Winckowski will be sent back to the minors after giving up exactly six earned runs in a start. His latest outing came Tuesday, when he was lifted after just two innings while entering the rotation for the injured Nathan Eovaldi (shoulder). Brayan Bello (groin) was activated from the 15-day injured list in advance of his start Wednesday and looks poised to fill Eovaldi's spot in the rotation moving forward now that Winckowski is out of the picture....

Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Early exit against Jays
Winckowski (5-7) took the loss Tuesday, coughing up six runs on six hits and two walks over 2.2 innings as the Red Sox were downed 9-3 by the Blue Jays. He struck out two.
The right-hander's return to the big-league rotation went smoothly for two innings, before the wheels completely fell off for Winckowski in the third. He got the hook after 61 pitches (34 strikes) in his shortest start yet in the majors. A promising start to the season for the rookie has quickly turned sour, and over his last eight outings for Boston, the 24-year-old has a 7.71 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 19:16 K:BB through 37.1 innings....

Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Called up for Tuesday's start
The Red Sox recalled Winckowski from Triple-A Worcester in advance of his scheduled start Tuesday against the Blue Jays.
Nathan Eovaldi (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move, paving the way for Winckowski to step back into his spot in the rotation. Eovaldi won't be eligible to return from the IL until Sept. 3 and could miss multiple turns through the rotation, but Winckowski hasn't proven himself to be a trustworthy fantasy option at this stage of his career. Through his first 12 big-league starts, the rookie has turned in a 5.19 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 36:21 K:BB in 60.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Returning to bigs to start Tuesday
The Red Sox will recall Winckowski from Triple-A Worcester to start Tuesday's home game against the Blue Jays, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Because Winckowski was optioned to Triple-A less than a week ago, the Red Sox will have to place another player on the injured list before the right-hander's return to the big leagues is official. Given that Nathan Eovaldi (shoulder) had already been pushed off Tuesday's start, there's a high likelihood that he'll end up going on the IL in a corresponding move. If that's the case, Winckowski could be in store for multiple turns through the rotation as Boston's fifth starter, though it may hinge on how he fares against Toronto. Over his first 12 big-league starts, Winckowski has generated a 5.19 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 36:21 K:BB across 60.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Optioned to Triple-A
Winckowski was optioned to Triple-A Worcester after Thursday's loss, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Winckowski returned to Triple-A after he gave up six runs on seven hits and a walk over five innings against the Pirates on Thursday. The right-hander owns a 5.19 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with 36 strikeouts over 60.2 innings in 12 starts for the Red Sox this year. The transaction opens a roster spot for Matt Strahm (wrist), who's expected to be activated from the 15-day injured list Friday.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Ineffective in spot start
Winckowski (5-6) took the loss Thursday in Pittsburgh, allowing six runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out two in five innings.
Winckowski took Nathan Eovaldi's (neck/shoulder) spot in the rotation Thursday and was greeted with a two-run blast by Bryan Reynolds in the first. Pittsburgh tacked on two more runs in the third and Reynolds tagged Winckowski with another two-run shot in the fifth. In five starts since the All-Star break, the 24-year-old has a 6.46 ERA, 1.61 WHIP, six homers allowed and a 10:7 K:BB in 23.2 innings. He's punched out two or fewer batters in five of his last seven starts.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Making spot start Thursday
Winckowski will start Thursday's game against the Pirates, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
The 24-year-old was expected to piggyback Rich Hill in Wednesday's contest, but he'll instead start Thursday's series finale since Nathan Eovaldi (neck/shoulder) is banged up. Winckowski has made 11 starts for Boston this year and has a 4.69 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 34:20 K:BB across 55.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Available in relief
Winckowski will move to the bullpen and piggyback Rich Hill in Wednesday's game against the Pirates, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
Hill's spot in the rotation is shaky after a couple of troubling outings off the injured list -- eight runs allowed over seven innings -- but he'll stick in the rotation for at least one more start. With Michael Wacha returning Sunday, the rotation is at full strength, which means Winckowski can serve as a bulk reliever for now.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Encounters trouble in sixth inning
Winckowski tossed 5.2 innings against Baltimore on Thursday, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out two batters in a no-decision.
Winckowski navigated through five scoreless frames before the Orioles got to him in the sixth. Baltimore put up three runs in the inning, tying the score 3-3 to remove Winckowski from a chance at a third straight victory and ending his push for a quality start. The right-handed rookie nonetheless gave Boston a solid outing, and he's posted a 3.45 ERA and 1.47 WHIP over 15.2 innings across his past three starts.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Solid in Friday's win
Winckowski (5-5) allowed a run on five hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings to earn the win over the Royals on Friday.
Winckowski's lone mistake resulted in a solo home run by Salvador Perez in the fifth inning. This was Winckowski's second win in a row after he lost four straight starts in July. The right-hander owns a 4.68 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 32:18 K:BB through 50 innings across 10 outings overall. The 24-year-old is tentatively projected for a home start versus the Orioles next week....

Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Allows two runs in victory
Winckowski (4-5) yielded two runs on seven hits and a walk over five frames Sunday, striking out one batter and earning a win over Milwaukee.
The only damage against Winckowski came via Hunter Renfroe's two-run blast in the second inning. The right-handed rookie had been tagged with 14 runs in as many innings over his previous three starts but he lowered his season ERA from 5.18 to 5.00 during his fourth career win. Winckowski is lined up to start in Kansas City next week.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Struggles in return to mound
Winckowski (3-5) got the loss after he tossed three innings, surrendering five runs on six hits and a walk while striking out one against the Guardians.
Winckowski made his return from the COVID-19-related injured list and didn't have his best stuff. He gave up one run in the first inning before giving up a solo homer to Austin Hedges in the second frame and a three-run shot to Nolan Jones in the third. The right-hander has now surrendered five home runs over his last three starts after only allowing one in his previous five outings. He entered July with a 3.60 ERA but that has now ballooned all the way up to 5.18. Winckowski is tentatively set to toe the rubber again Sunday against the Brewers.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Returns for Tuesday's start
The Red Sox activated Winckowski (illness) from the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday. He will start Tuesday against the Guardians.
Winckowski's most recent start was a six-inning, three-run effort in Tampa on July 13. The rookie has pitched to a 4.38 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in seven starts this season and could be primed for a quality night against a Cleveland team he limited to two runs over 5.1 innings June 25....
