Player Outlook
John Schreiber, who missed two months last season due to a shoulder strain, arrived early to Red Sox camp to get his arm in shape for 2024. A month later, the 29-year-old was traded to Kansas City, where he figures to serve in high-leverage and join the Royals mix for save opportunities. Schreiber is capable of pitching multiple innings and is versatile enough to serve as an opener should the Royals elect to deploy him that way. The right-hander's walk rate spiked to 12.3 percent last year, thus inflating his WHIP, but his career mark is 8.8 percent. Some positive regression in that category will better define which role he settles into within the Kansas City bullpen. Schreiber has expressed he feels great and is fully healthy, so that's certainly a positive for his 2024 prospects.

  • Royals' John Schreiber: Takes second loss

    Schreiber (3-2) allowed three runs on three hits over one-third of an inning to take the loss versus the Rangers on Friday. Schreiber was on the hook for three of the five runs the Rangers scored in the sixth inning. After opening June with four scoreless innings, Schreiber's struggles have returned -- he's given up eight runs (six earned) over his last four appearances, taking two blown saves in that span. Friday's outing pushed his ERA up to 4.15 with a 1.48 WHIP and 20:11 K:BB over 30.1 innings. While he has a save and 16 holds to his name this year, he could see a move to a low-leverage role if he continues to falter.

  • Royals' John Schreiber: Handed loss Friday

    Schreiber (3-1) allowed three runs on three hits over one-third of an inning, taking the loss Friday versus the Padres. Schreiber got the final out of the seventh inning but put three straight batters on base to begin the eighth. James McArthur relieved him and couldn't stop the Padres' rally in what ended up being a nine-run frame. After looking like one of the Royals' most dominant relievers in April, Schreiber posted a much worse 6.52 ERA and 2.17 WHIP over 9.2 innings in May. He's at a decent 3.00 ERA on the year, but his 1.33 WHIP and 17:7 K:BB over 24 innings are concerning, as he's giving up too many hits and striking out too few batters. Schreiber has a save and 14 holds on the year while operating in a setup role.

  • Royals' John Schreiber: Tallies first save

    Schreiber picked up the save Friday against the Angels. He pitched a shutout inning, allowing one hit with no strikeouts. Schreiber collected his first save of the season and the 10th of his career. Royals closer James McArthur had worked back-to-back nights on Tuesday and Wednesday, so manager Matt Quatraro could have been giving him extra rest Friday night. However, McArthur also blew saves Sunday and Tuesday and has seen his ERA jump from 2.87 to 4.15 in the last week, so his hold on the ninth-inning role could be slipping.

  • Royals' John Schreiber: Collects third win

    Schreiber (3-0) earned the win Friday versus the Rangers, allowing two hits and two walks with one strikeout in a scoreless inning. Schreiber erased a walk with a double play, then loaded the bases again before striking out Marcus Semien to end the top of the seventh inning. The Royals rallied for six runs in their half of the frame, and Schreiber ended up with the win. He's pitched 5.1 consecutive scoreless innings, and he's been scored on just once this season, pitching to 0.59 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 11:5 K:BB over 15.1 innings. He's getting some good luck, as indicated by a .227 BABIP and 3.06 FIP, but the right-hander looks poised to play an important high-leverage role for the Royals throughout the year.

  • Royals' John Schreiber: Credited with win

    Schreiber (2-0) pitched a perfect inning and was credited with the win Wednesday over the Blue Jays. Schreiber was deemed the most effective reliever after Alec Marsh (elbow) exited the contest in the fifth inning and Angel Zerpa struggled in a 1.2-inning assignment. Schreiber has maintained scoreless outings in all but one of his appearances so far, pitching to a 0.75 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 8:3 K:BB across 12 innings. He's added two wins and seven holds while serving in a setup role. Schreiber doesn't have a clear path to saves with James McArthur emerging as the Royals' closer, but he's very clearly in the late-inning mix.

  • Royals' John Schreiber: Seen as lock for bullpen

    Schreiber is viewed as a lock to make the Royals' bullpen, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. Schreiber's role is yet to be officially defined by manager Matt Quatraro, but it's likely he is in the high-leverage mix after logging nine saves and 33 holds over 110 appearances between 2022 and 2023 for the Red Sox. The right-handed reliever has done everything right in spring so far, allowing five hits and striking out five without walking a batting over five innings through five Cactus League appearances. In addition to Schreiber, Will Smith and James McArthur are seen as the Royals' top relievers, with Smith most likely to close given his past work as a closer.

  • Royals' John Schreiber: Traded to Royals

    The Red Sox traded Schreiber to the Royals on Saturday in exchange for David Sandlin, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Though he missed nearly two months of the season due to a shoulder strain, Schreiber instantly becomes one of the top relievers in Kansas City's bullpen after posting a 3.86 ERA and 1.41 WHIP across 46.2 frames in 2023. The 29-year-old right-hander often served in high-leverage situations over the past two years and could be in the mix for save opportunities with his new club.

  • Red Sox's John Schreiber: Reaches deal with Sox

    Schreiber signed a one-year, $1.175 million contract with the Red Sox on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports. Schreiber impressed during his first full season with Boston in 2022 and got off to a hot start last year as well. However, the 29-year-old righty injured his shoulder in May and wasn't quite the same when he came back in late July, recording a 4.85 ERA and 1.48 WHIP through 29.2 innings post-injury. Schreiber may still be an option for Boston in high-leverage situations this season, but his reliability remains questionable.

  • Red Sox's John Schreiber: Let down by defense, blows save

    Schreiber allowed one run on two hits over one inning and blew the save in Saturday's 4-3 extra-innings loss to Toronto. For Boston's first save opportunity since closer Kenley Jansen (illness) landed on the COVID-19-related injured list, Red Sox manager Alex Cora brought in Schreiber to close. The right-hander should have survived with a save, but center fielder Ceddanne Rafaela misplayed a Daulton Varsho liner, turning a potential game-ending out into a triple, which plated the tying run. Schreiber entered the game following Chris Martin, who is also in the mix for saves while Jansen works his way back.

  • Red Sox's John Schreiber: Opening Saturday's contest

    Schreiber will serve as the Red Sox's opening pitcher for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays, Gabrielle Starr of the Boston Herald reports. Chris Murphy, who last pitched Sunday against the Giants and covered 3.1 innings, will likely serve as a bulk reliever behind Schreiber, who will likely work only an inning or two. The Red Sox have now deployed Schreiber as an opener for two of his five appearances since he returned from the 60-day injured list last week.

  • Red Sox's John Schreiber: Activated, serving as opener

    The Red Sox activated Schreiber (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list Tuesday, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports. In what will be his first appearance for Boston since May 15, Schreiber will serve as the team's opening pitcher in Tuesday's game against Atlanta. Schreiber is unlikely to work more than an inning or two before giving way to Nick Pivetta, who is expected to serve as the team's primary pitcher out of the bullpen.

  • Red Sox's John Schreiber: Closing in on return

    Schreiber (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the 60-day injured list Sunday versus the Mets or next Tuesday against Atlanta, MLB.com reports. Schreiber has made four rehab appearances with Triple-A Worcester and is expected to pitch in back-to-back games Wednesday and Thursday. That could be his final test before he rejoins the Red Sox bullpen. Schreiber has been sidelined since mid-May with a right shoulder strain.

  • Red Sox's John Schreiber: Beginning assignment over weekend

    Manager Alex Cora said Thursday that Schreiber (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment this weekend, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports. If all goes according to plan, Schreiber will be back to begin Boston's upcoming series with the Mets on July 21. The 29-year-old reliever has been on the shelf since May 15 with a right shoulder strain, and he put up a 2.12 ERA and 1.29 WHIP through 17 innings before getting injured.

  • Red Sox's John Schreiber: Throws bullpen session

    Schreiber (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports. Schreiber can't return from the 60-day injured list until after the All-Star break, but he should be ready around the time he's first eligible if all continues to go well with his throwing progression. He's been sidelined since mid-May because of a right teres major strain.

  • Red Sox's John Schreiber: Shifted to 60-day IL

    The Red Sox transferred Schreiber (shoulder) to the 60-day injured list Thursday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports. Schreiber initially landed on the injured list May 16 with a right teres major sprain. His transfer ensures he will remain out until after the All-Star break and creates room for Tayler Scott, who was acquired in a trade with the Dodgers on Thursday.

  • Red Sox's John Schreiber: Dealing with lat injury

    Schreiber left Monday's game against the Mariners with right lat tightness, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports. Schreiber is likely headed for further testing after being removed from Monday's contest. Manager Alex Cora stated after the contest that the right-hander is likely headed to the 15-day injured list, though no official move has been made just yet.

  • Red Sox's John Schreiber: Leaves game with trainer

    Schreiber exited Monday's game against the Mariners due to an undisclosed injury, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports. The nature of Schreiber's injury has yet to be revealed, but he appeared to clenching his right fist, per Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald. He'll be considered day-to-day until more information comes to light.

  • Red Sox's John Schreiber: Secures win Tuesday

    Schreiber (1-0) got the win Tuesday against the Twins, allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits and a walk over an inning of work. Schreiber entered to pitch the 10th and loaded the bases after two batters. He allowed a run to score on a sacrifice fly before a second crossed the plate on a groundout to the shortstop. He was bailed out with a win after the Red Sox scored three in the bottom of the inning to walk off with a win. Schreiber had put together five scoreless outings before Tuesday and now sits at a 2.00 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 12:6 K:BB over nine innings.

  • Red Sox's John Schreiber: Earns eighth save

    Schreiber picked up the save Tuesday in Cincinnati, tossing two-thirds of an inning in a 5-3 win. Schreiber entered the game in the ninth inning with one out and the bases loaded and Boston leading 5-2. He allowed a sacrifice fly and then induced a groundout to end the game. It was his eighth save of the season and third in September. The 28-year-old has not allowed an earned run in his last 12 outings, allowing just seven baserunners in 11 innings during that span.

  • Red Sox's John Schreiber: Records seventh save

    Schreiber earned the save Sunday, striking out two in a perfect ninth inning in a 5-2 win over Texas. Schreiber ran the count full on two of the three hitters he faced but closed the door on Texas without anyone reaching base. It was his seventh save on the season and third since Aug. 27. Boston may not have a set closer at the moment but Schreiber and his 2.11 ERA and 0.89 WHIP is certainly someone manager Alex Cora trusts in important situations. The 28-year-old will likely continue to get a fair amount of save opportunities over the final month.
