  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Shuts door Sunday

    Whitlock picked up the save Sunday against the Yankees. He pitched a perfect ninth inning while striking out two. Whitlock was fantastic Sunday, striking out Andrew Benintendi and Aaron Judge before getting Josh Donaldson to ground out to record his third save on the season. With Tanner Houck injured, Whitlock has recently split save opportunities with John Schreiber. Whitlock has a strong 2.98 ERA and 0.98 WHIP and has only blown one save opportunity in 23 appearances this season, but Schreiber has also been great. Expect the two relievers to continue splitting opportunities as long as Houck is sidelined.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Earns win in relief

    Whitlock (3-2) pitched the final two innings of Friday's 10-inning win over the Yankees, striking out three and walking one while not allowing a hit or a run. Whitlock entered with the Red Sox down one in the top of the ninth and retired the side in order. Boston tied the game in the bottom of the inning, and Whitlock remained on the mound to start extras, walking Aaron Judge to start the frame before getting three consecutive outs. Tommy Pham's walkoff single in the bottom of the 10th gave Whitlock and the Red Sox a win. It was his sixth straight multi-inning outing.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Records another multi-inning save

    Whitlock earned the save over the Guardians on Thursday, allowing one run on two hits and one walk while striking out one batter over two innings. Kutter Crawford and Jake Diekman combined to limit Cleveland to one run over seven innings, and Whitlock took over in the eighth with Boston holding a 4-1 lead. The right-hander allowed a run in that frame but pitched a scoreless ninth to finish off the save. Whitlock has picked up a two-inning save in each of his past two appearances, and given the ineffectiveness at the back end of Boston's bullpen this season, he could be emerging as the team's primary closer.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Notches two-inning save

    Whitlock struck out two batters over two scoreless innings and earned a save over the Guardians on Monday. Whitlock fired 15 of 19 pitches for strikes and had no trouble mowing down Cleveland's lineup. It was his second save of the year and first since April 19. In four appearances since returning from the injured list, Whitlock has punched out nine batters over six shutout frames. It's unclear how Boston plans to use its bullpen moving forward as John Schreiber earned the win and Tanner Houck did not pitch Monday.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Works two scoreless innings

    Whitlock struck out three over two scoreless innings in Friday's 5-4 extra-innings win over the Yankees. Whitlock, making his first appearance after being activated off the injured list, held Boston's one-run lead by setting down the side in order over the seventh and eighth innings. He had been a starter before hitting the IL, but Whitlock will serve a multi-inning relief role that could involve save opportunities. Closer Tanner Houck eventually blew the save Friday, but he's pitched well otherwise while stabilizing Boston's ninth-inning relief issues.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Reinstated from injured list

    Whitlock (hip) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Friday. Whitlock served mainly as a starter for the Red Sox early in the season, posting a 3.51 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 48.2 innings over 13 appearances (nine starts). However, he served as a multi-inning reliever during his rehab assignment and allowed two runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out four in four innings over two appearances. The right-hander will pitch out of the bullpen for Boston following his activation, which will hinder his fantasy value since he isn't expected to be a regular part of the team's ninth-inning mix. Whitlock will be one of the top options to fill in as a starter if needed.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Trending toward Friday return

    Manager Alex Cora said the Red Sox will likely activate Whitlock (hip) from the 15-day injured list prior to Friday's series opener with the Yankees, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. Whitlock will be making his return to the Red Sox as a multi-inning option out of the bullpen, even though he enjoyed a good deal of success in his nine starts for Boston prior to landing on the IL on June 10 with right hip inflammation. Though the Red Sox view Whitlock as a starter over the long haul, the organization is hopeful that the bullpen role will maximize the right-hander's effectiveness and preserve his overall health. Since he's not expected to regularly factor into the equation for saves with Tanner Houck and John Schreiber having seemingly established themselves as the preferred options at the back end of the bullpen, Whitlock's fantasy value could take a big hit as he steps into a relief role, though he should still have some appeal as a ratio stabilizer. Whitlock is scheduled to make a two-inning rehab appearance Tuesday for Double-A Portland before the Red Sox formally activate him for the weekend series with the Yankees.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Next rehab outing coming Tuesday

    Whitlock (hip) is scheduled to make a rehab appearance with Double-A Portland on Tuesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports. The upcoming outing will mark Whitlock's second rehab appearance, after he previously tossed two innings for Triple-A Worcester on Friday and struck out three while giving up two earned runs on six hits and no walks. He'll likely be on tap for another multi-inning appearance Tuesday, and if all goes well, Whitlock should rejoin the Red Sox thereafter. After making nine starts prior to landing on the injured list, Whitlock is set to serve as a high-leverage, multi-inning reliever for Boston upon being activated.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Another rehab outing likely

    Whitlock (hip) is expected to make one more rehab appearance for Triple-A Worcester, likely to be Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports. Whitlock threw two innings for the WooSox on Friday, giving up a pair of runs on six hits while recording three strikeouts. The hip got a workout on the mound and in backing up a few bases, manager Alex Cora joked with reporters. Worcester will be on the road in Norfolk (Va.) this week, and there's a chance Whitlock joins the Red Sox during their series against Tampa Bay after Tuesday's outing.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Knocked around in rehab opener

    Whitlock (hip) allowed two runs on six hits and struck out three over two innings for Triple-A Worcester on Friday. The right-hander made his first rehab appearance after hitting the injured list June 10. Whitlock threw 26 strikes among 34 pitches over the fifth and six innings and wasn't hit particularly hard, per Katie Morrison of MassLive.com; however, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre batters were able to bunch hits together. "They jumped him, really," WooSox manager Chad Tracy said. "That happens in rehab appearances, they know guys are trying to get back on their feet, so they kind of jumped him. Couple soft hits, there were a couple squared up." Most of the damage came in the fifth when both runs scored on four hits; the sixth was cleaner but the RailRaiders managed another two hits. Whitlock is rehabbing for a return to Boston as a multi-inning reliever.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Rehab appearance coming Friday

    Whitlock (hip) is slated to make a 1-to-2-inning rehab appearance for Triple-A Worcester on Friday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. Red Sox manager Alex Cora has already said that Whitlock will be deployed out of the bullpen upon returning from the 15-day injured list, so the right-hander may only need one or two appearances in the minors prior to being activated. Tanner Houck and John Schreiber have emerged as the top options at the back end of the bullpen, but Whitlock could still see the occasional save chance while serving as a multi-inning, high-leverage relief arm.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Faces hitters again

    Whitlock (hip) threw a live batting practice session Tuesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports. Assuming Whitlock's inflamed right hip isn't bothering him too much coming out of the workout, he could be cleared to report to one of the Red Sox's minor-league affiliates this weekend to head out on a rehab assignment. Since manager Alex Cora has already confirmed that Whitlock will pitch out of the bullpen once activated from the 15-day injured list, the 26-year-old right-hander will likely only need one or two rehab appearances in the minors to get fully ramped up. Whitlock should operate as a multi-inning, high-leverage reliever for Boston, though both Tanner Houck and John Schreiber could rank ahead of him in the pecking order for save opportunities.

  • 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: 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: 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.
