  • Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Picks up third win

    Winckowski (3-1) earned the win over Cleveland on Saturday, allowing two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out four over 5.1 innings.

    Winckowski got into trouble and allowed a pair of runs in the third inning, but he otherwise kept Cleveland off the scoreboard. The right-hander wasn't overpowering in the victory -- he induced only five swinging strikes and punched out four batters -- but he allowed just one extra-base hit and threw 52 of 77 pitches for strikes. Winckowski has earned a win in each of his past three starts, allowing only four runs over 17 innings during that stretch. Given his success so far, Boston could be compelled to keep Winckowski in the rotation while waiting for Chris Sale (ribs) and Nathan Eovaldi (back) to return.

  • Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: To remain in rotation

    Winckowski (2-1) picked up the win after allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out two over 6.2 innings Monday against the Tigers. The Red Sox announced after the game that he'll get another turn in the rotation and is expected to make his next start in Cleveland, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Winckowski dealt with plenty of traffic on the bases, but he hung in there and managed to give the Red Sox his deepest start of the season, ultimately departing the contest with a 5-2 lead. The right-hander has now surrendered just two runs over his last two starts (11.2 innings), and he's shown that he's deserving of at least one more turn through the rotation, especially while Nathan Eovaldi (back) and Garrett Whitlock (hip) continue their respective rehab assignments.

  • Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Shows improvement in second start

    Winckowski (1-1) allowed four hits and a walk while striking out three over five scoreless innings to earn the win over the Athletics on Wednesday.

    Winckowski made his major-league debut in late May, but struggled across three innings to take the loss. He looked significantly better Wednesday in a favorable matchup, and the Red Sox's offense gave him plenty of support from the start of the game. He's now allowed a combined four runs, 10 hits and four walks with seven strikeouts in eight innings in his two starts. With Garrett Whitlock (hip) and Nathan Eovaldi (back) both on the 15-day injured list into next week at a minimum, Winckowski is likely to get one more start, which lines up to be a home game versus the Tigers early next week.

  • Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Tabbed to start Wednesday

    Winckowski will be recalled from Triple-A Worcester to start Wednesday's game against the A's, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    The Red Sox have openings in their starting rotation with Nathan Eovaldi (back) and Garrett Whitlock (hip) on the injured list, and Winckowski will be called up Wednesday for his second start of the season. The 23-year-old made his MLB debut in late May and allowed four runs on six hits with four strikeouts and three walks across three innings. He has a 3.38 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 43:8 K:BB over 42.2 innings for Worcester this year and could receive a longer look in Boston's rotation this time around.

  • Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Recalled ahead of start

    Winckowski was recalled from Triple-A Worcester ahead of Wednesday's start against the Athletics.

    Winckowski didn't fare particularly well during his major-league debut in late May, as he allowed four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four in three innings to take the loss against the Orioles. However, he'll make his second career start for the Red Sox at home against the Athletics during Wednesday's matchup.

  • Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Moves back to minors

    The Red Sox optioned Winckowski to Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday.

    As expected, Winckowski's stint in the big leagues lasted just one game, as Boston summoned him from the minors to start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader with the Orioles when the team required a temporary sixth member of the rotation. The 23-year-old right-hander was handed the loss in his MLB debut after surrendering four earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four over three innings.

  • Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Takes loss in debut

    Winckowski (0-1) allowed four runs on six hits and three walks with four strikeouts in three innings, taking the loss in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Orioles.

    Winckowski got through the Orioles' order without taking any damage the first time, but they got to him for all four runs in the third inning. The Red Sox's bullpen then provided six innings of one-hit ball, but the offense didn't get the right-hander off the hook. Winckowski was up as the 27th man for Saturday's doubleheader, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him returned to Triple-A Worcester in the near future -- the Red Sox have no apparent need to carry an extra starter.

  • Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Recalled as 27th man

    Winckowski was recalled from Triple-A Worcester to serve as the 27th man in Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

    After posting a 3.13 ERA and 0.87 WHIP in 31.2 innings over seven starts at Triple-A Worcester, Winckowski is expected to make his major-league debut as the starter in the second game of Saturday's twin bill. Although Saturday's outing will likely be a spot start, he could be in the mix for a more prominent role later in the year.

  • Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Should make MLB debut Saturday

    Manager Alex Cora said Winckowski is likely to be promoted to start Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    The 23-year-old has a 3.13 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 34:6 K:BB over 31.2 innings for Triple-A Worcester this season, and he's now expected to make his major-league debut this weekend. It may only be a spot start for Winckowski, but a strong performance could increase the likelihood of another promotion later in the year.

  • Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Strong start falls apart

    Winckowski allowed five runs on six hits while striking out six over six-plus innings for Triple-A Worcester on Sunday.

    Winckowski dealt through the first six innings before the first four batters reached base in the seventh. All four came around to score, giving the appearance of a poor outing for the right-hander. His next start could come as a member of the Red Sox, who have a doubleheader scheduled for Saturday, which would be the right-hander's next day to pitch. Boston manager Alex Cora hinted that one of the starters for the doubleheader would come from the minors, and Winckowski lines up as a logical choice.

  • Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Candidate to start next weekend

    Winckowski is a candidate to start in one of the two games during Boston's doubleheader against the Orioles next weekend, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Winckowski began the season at Triple-A Worcester and has posted a 2.10 ERA, 28:6 K:BB and 0.83 WHIP in 25.2 innings over six starts in the minors. The right-hander hasn't yet made his major-league debut, but manager Alex Cora hinted Saturday that Winckowski is in the mix to start next weekend.

  • Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Moves to Triple-A

    Winckowski was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Wednesday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    Winckowski was added to Boston's 40-man roster in November and will now head to minor-league camp after opening spring training with the major-league club. He appeared in two games for Worcester but spent most of 2021 at the Double-A level, where he posted a 4.23 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 88:30 K:BB across 100 innings.

  • Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Joins 40-man roster

    Winckowski's contract was selected by the Red Sox on Friday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Winckowski was acquired by Boston in February and spent time at Double-A Portland and Triple-A Worcester. He posted a 4.02 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 112 innings across 23 appearances (22 starts) and will now be protected from the Rule 5 draft.
