  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: May move to bullpen

    Manager Alex Cora said Wednesday the Red Sox are considering utilizing Whitlock (hip) out of the bullpen upon his return from the 15-day injured list, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The 26-year-old landed is scheduled for a bullpen session Saturday before potentially starting a rehab assignment, per Cotillo, and once he's healthy, it appears Boston is leaning toward using him as a reliever. Whitlock made his first four appearances of the season out of the bullpen before moving into the rotation, and he has a 4.15 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 38:9 K:BB across 39 innings as a starter.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Likely needs rehab assignment

    Whitlock (hip) will likely need a rehab assignment following Friday's throwing session, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    He will face live hitters and go through fielding drills Friday, but Speier estimates Whitlock will still require a rehab assignment after that. Assuming he goes out on a rehab assignment after this weekend, Whitlock could return to make one or two starts before the All-Star break.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Slated to face hitters Friday

    Whitlock (hip) will face live hitters and go through fielding drills Friday in Chicago, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    Whitlock resumed facing hitters last week, but he slowed down his recovery process over the weekend since he was still experiencing pain. A better idea of the right-hander's return timetable should be revealed based on how he feels following Friday's throwing sessions.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Won't start versus Blue Jays

    Whitlock (hip) won't be activated from the 15-day injured list to start during the upcoming three-game series against the Blue Jays, which begins Monday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    The 26-year-old threw a simulated game Tuesday, but his progress from the hip injury has slow over the past couple days. Whitlock hasn't suffered a setback, per Abraham, though manager Alex Cora said the right-hander "wasn't feeling good" or "moving well." Whitlock recently appeared to be on the cusp of his return from the injured list, but his outlook for the near future is now a bit more uncertain.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Tosses sim game, won't start this week

    Whitlock (hip) threw a simulated game Tuesday, but the Red Sox won't have him start during their three-game series in Cleveland this weekend, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    After completing a 20-pitch bullpen session last Saturday, Whitlock took another step forward three days later by facing hitters. When Whitlock was placed on the 15-day injured list June 10 with an inflamed right hip, the Red Sox had hope that he would be ready to go in the minimum amount of time, but he looks like he'll need at least a few additional days to get stretched back out. Whitlock is eligible to return this weekend, but the Red Sox have already announced Nick Pivetta, Josh Winckowksi and Rich Hill as their three starters for the Cleveland series. Whitlock will likely be re-evaluated within the next day or two before the Red Sox decide if he'll be ready to rejoin the big club next week or if he'll first require a rehab start in the minors.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Throws bullpen Saturday

    Whitlock (hip) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Saturday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    Whitlock will throw another session Tuesday, which is expected to be longer than Saturday's bullpen. "He's trending in the right direction," Boston manager Alex Cora said. "At one point on the road trip, he'll be with us." Whitlock could be activated and start during the series in Cleveland beginning Thursday or during next week's series in Toronto.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Bullpen session on tap

    Whitlock (hip) is scheduled for a bullpen session Tuesday, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    Whitlock resumed playing catch Friday and will quickly return to the mound after landing on the injured list June 10 with right hip inflammation. If all goes well Tuesday, the 26-year-old could rejoin Boston's starting rotation as early as the weekend.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Resumes playing catch

    Whitlock (hip) has resumed playing catch, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    Whitlock has been on the injured list for a week, and the Red Sox are hoping he'll be able to rejoin the rotation after missing the minimum of 15 days. The right-hander is eligible to be reinstated as early as June 24.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: May miss just 15 days

    Whitlock is doing well in his recovery from right hip inflammation and may miss the minimum 15 days, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    Whitlock hit the injured list Friday, leaving him eligible to return June 24. It sounds like he'll have a chance to be activated when first eligible, though Nathan Eovaldi (back) will also be eligible to return that day, and it's possible one of them waits an additional day.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Pitching through hip tightness

    Whitlock is dealing with hip tightness, but he's not expected to miss any time because of the injury, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Boston manager Alex Cora noticed Whitlock favoring one leg during a start June 1, and the right-hander was roughed up by the Angels in his subsequent start. The skipper indicated the condition is "nothing serious," while the pitcher said it's not bothering him when he pitches. "But obviously we have to take care of him," Cora said. "Maybe we can make adjustments as far as like his conditioning and all that. Instead of running outside, let's do it on the treadmill." Cora added that Whitlock will be ready for his next start, which is slated for Sunday in Seattle.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Placed on injured list

    Whitlock was placed on the 15-day injured list Friday due to right hip inflammation, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Whitlock's scheduled start for Saturday against the Mariners was up in the air, and he'll ultimately require an IL stint after being diagnosed with hip inflammation. Right-hander Phillips Valdez was recalled from Triple-A Worcester to take his place on the active roster, but it's not yet clear who will take Whitlock's place in the rotation. Although manager Alex Cora recently downplayed the severity of Whitlock's injury, a timetable for his return hasn't yet been revealed.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Sunday's start in question

    Whitlock is questionable to make his scheduled start Sunday against Seattle due to his hip injury, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

    Manager Alex Cora said Thursday that Whitlock wasn't expected to miss any time due to his hip tightness, but the team is working on contingency plans in case the right-hander is unable to take the mound Sunday. Even if Whitlock doesn't start Sunday, it doesn't seem like the Red Sox are particularly concerned that his hip injury is a long-term issue.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Posts no-decision versus Angels

    Whitlock allowed four runs on six hits and no walks while striking out five in four innings versus the Angels on Tuesday. He didn't factor in the decision.

    Whitlock had some trouble with Mike Trout in particular, as the Angels' star outfielder hit a two-run home run and a double before exiting the game with groin tightness. Whitlock didn't do that well to settle in, and he was done after 71 pitches (47 strikes) in a shaky outing. The right-hander now has a 3.51 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 49:11 K:BB across 48.2 innings in 13 appearances (nine starts). He still sits with a 2-1 record heading into his next start.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Six scoreless in win

    Whitlock (2-1) earned the win Wednesday, allowing one run on five hits and zero walks over six innings against the Reds. He struck out zero.

    Whitlock was dominant and scattered five singles across six innings as he cruised to his second win of the season. However, he failed to record a strikeout for the first time as a starter this year, which limited his overall fantasy output. Regardless, the youngster still sports a 3.02 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP across eight starts and 44.2 total innings. His next outing is tentatively scheduled for next week against the Angels.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Misses out on victory

    Whitlock didn't factor in the decision during Friday's 12-8 loss to the Orioles after giving up two runs on five hits over six innings. He had four strikeouts and one walk.

    The 25-year-old served up a two-run homer to Anthony Santander during the fourth inning but otherwise kept Baltimore off the board, and he exited with Boston holding an 8-2 lead. However, the Red Sox bullpen completely imploded, preventing Whitlock from earning his first win since April 12. The right-hander continues to pitch well as a member of the starting rotation and has a 3.49 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 44:11 K:BB across 38.2 innings this season.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Early exit against M's

    Whitlock didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Mariners, coughing up five runs on 10 hits over three innings. He struck out three.

    Seattle jumped on the right-hander for four runs in the top of the first inning, and Whitlock eventually needed 71 pitches (48 strikes) to record nine outs before getting the hook. The 25-year-old has yet to complete more than five innings in a start, and he's managed to get that far only twice in six starts since moving into the rotation. Whitlock has a 3.58 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 40:10 K:BB through 32.2 innings on the season, but his 4.70 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in the rotation suggest another role change could be on the horizon.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: No-decision against Houston

    Whitlock didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 6-3 win over the Astros, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks over five-plus innings. He struck out three.

    The right-hander kept Houston off the board for four frames before serving up a solo shot to Chas McCormick to lead off the fifth. Whitlock has yet to work more than five innings in any outing since moving into the rotation, but he's posted a 3.15 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 26:8 K:BB through 20 innings over his five starts.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Slated to start Monday

    Whitlock will start Monday's game against the Astros, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Although Rich Hill (illness) is expected to return from the COVID-19 injured list this weekend, Whitlock will remain in the starting rotation with an additional day of rest prior to his next outing. While Whitlock initially lined up to start Sunday in Texas, he'll be pushed back to start Monday's series opener at home against the Astros. Following a strong start to the season, the right-hander has allowed five runs in eight innings over his last two outings, although he's struck out 14 during that time.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Ineffective versus Atlanta

    Whitlock tossed three innings, giving up three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out five in Tuesday's win over the Braves. He did not factor into the decision.

    Whitlock didn't have full command of the strike zone Tuesday, walking a season-high four batters while throwing 48 of his 82 pitches for strikes. Marcell Ozuna ripped a sacrifice fly against him in the bottom of the third inning before Travis d'Arnaud launched a two-run homer later in the frame. The 25-year-old has been alternating between long relief and the starting rotation this season, drawing a start in each of his last three outings, surrendering five runs in 11 innings over that stretch. Whitlock still owns a 2.19 ERA and 0.93 WHIP with 34 strikeouts over 24.2 innings this year. It is yet to be seen if he will make another start in the rotation or if Rich Hill (illness) will return from the COVID-19 injured list ahead of his next turn in the rotation.
