Mets' Eduardo Nunez: Sent to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez (knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

Nunez originally hurt his left knee while running out a play at first base over the weekend, and he was sent to the shelf after showing little improvement over the past few days. Brian Dozier was summoned from the team's satellite camp to take Nunez's place on the roster.

Mets' Eduardo Nunez: Diagnosed with hyperextended knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez is considered day-to-day after hyperextending his left knee in Sunday's loss to the Braves, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Nunez suffered the injury while running out a play at first base late in Sunday's loss, but he'll avoid the injured list for now. He isn't in the lineup for Monday's game against the Mets and is officially considered day-to-day as he recovers.

Mets' Eduardo Nunez: Set to be reassessed Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez may have suffered a hyperextended knee in Sunday's loss to the Braves but will be reassessed Monday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

After Nunez was removed in the eighth inning of Sunday's game, manager Luis Rojas said that Nunez felt as though he may have hyperextended his knee. However, the 23-year-old is being further evaluated Sunday and Monday, and more clarity on the severity of the injury could come afterward.

Mets' Eduardo Nunez: Exits with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez was removed from Sunday's game against the Braves after suffering an injury while running the bases, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Nunez beat out a throw to first base late in Sunday's blowout game and was hobbled afterward with an apparent left leg injury. He was able to exit the field under his own power, but the severity of the injury is unclear.

Mets' Eduardo Nunez: Heading for Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez will be included on the Mets' Opening Day roster, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The veteran infielder was in camp as a non-roster invitee, and he was able to show enough in spring and summer training to justify being added to the 40-man roster. Nunez had the worst season of his career in Boston last year with a .228/.243/.305 slash line in 174 plate appearances.

Mets' Eduardo Nunez: Named to 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez has been added to the Mets' 60-man player pool, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

The veteran utility player had been competing for a roster spot back in spring training. Nunez is coming off a couple of injury-plagued seasons, but his .801 OPS and 24 steals in 114 games back in 2017 suggest he might still have something left in the tank if he can stay healthy and get an opportunity.

Mets' Eduardo Nunez: Looking healthy in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez says he's fully recovered from the knee injury that ruined his 2019 campaign, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. "Sometimes when I saw my name in the lineup in Boston, I was like, 'Oh my God... I have to play today? It's so painful. I'm so sore.' It's not fun to compete when you have so much pain in your knee," Nunez said this week. "Last year, I couldn't even play defense, I couldn't hustle, I couldn't steal any base, I couldn't hit for power, so it was really tough."

An All-Star in 2016, Nunez strained the PCL in his right knee toward the end of the 2017 season and saw his performance steadily regress afterward, bottoming out at a .548 OPS last year. Released by the Red Sox in July, the 32-year-old elected to go home and rest his knee rather than try to catch on elsewhere, and the time off seems to have rejuvenated him. Nunez is slashing .321/.387/.464 through 31 plate appearances this spring as a non-roster invitee, and while it's not clear if there's room for him on the Mets' 26-man roster, he could wind up elsewhere if he doesn't make the cut for New York.

Mets' Eduardo Nunez: Signs with Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez signed with the Mets as a non-roster invitee Saturday, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

The 32-year-old's career has taken a sharp downturn over the last two seasons following three straight years with an above-average batting line from 2015 to 2017. He hit just .265/.289/.388 in 2018 and struggled to a .228/.243/.305 line in 174 plate appearances for the Red Sox in 2019 before being released in mid-July. He'll be fighting for a bench spot this spring.

Eduardo Nunez: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox released Nunez on Saturday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

After designating Nunez for assignment earlier this week, the Red Sox were unable to find any takers on the trade market for the utility man, and no teams were willing to put in a waiver claim for his services, either. Since Nunez had more than five years' worth of MLB service time, he had the ability to refuse an outright assignment to the minors, which likely factored into the team's decision to cut him loose. Nunez should at the very least land a minor-league deal with another organization that includes an opt-out clause in the near future if none of the league's other 29 teams is willing to sign him to an MLB deal for the minimum.

Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez was designated for assignment by the Red Sox on Monday.

The move may be somewhat unexpected, but it's hard to say it wasn't deserved. Nunez's .265/.289/.388 slash line last season was poor enough, but he hit a new low this season, posting a .228/.243/.305 slash line. He could still provide fantasy owners a handful of steals if he lands with a team that gives him regular playing time, but his bat may have deteriorated to the point where that's unlikely. Sam Travis was called up in a corresponding move.

Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Playing time picks up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez will start at second base and bat eighth Sunday against the Yankees.

He'll enter the lineup for the fourth time in five games with fellow second baseman Brock Holt (leg) sitting out the series finale in London. Though Nunez has recorded 10 hits in 30 at-bats over his last 11 games, he's still batting a lowly .235 on the campaign.

Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Singles in two runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Monday's 6-5 win over the White Sox.

Both of Nunez's RBI singles tied the game, first at 2-2 in the fifth inning and later at 5-5 in the eighth. It was just his third multi-RBI performance since the start of May, giving him 17 on the season alongside a .241 batting average.

Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Enters for injured Devers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez entered Wednesday's game after Rafael Devers left with a hamstring injury. He went 2-for-2 with a pair of doubles and scored a run in a 9-4 win over the Twins.

Devers downplayed the injury following the game and, with the team's off day Thursday, could return for Friday's series opener against the Blue Jays. If Devers needs more time, Nunez is expected to be the primary fill-in at third base.

Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Fills in at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez started at designated hitter Friday and went 0-for-4 in a 5-1 loss to the Rays.

Nunez got the call at DH with J.D. Martinez unavailable after being removed from Thursday's game due to back spasms. Nunez entered the game on a good run, having hit .462 (12-for-26) over his nine previous games, but he wasn't the only batter to scuffle against Tampa Bay right-hander Yonny Chirinos.

Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Pops second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez hit a three-run, pinch-hit home run in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Royals.

Stepping to the plate for Brock Holt in the eighth inning, Nunez broke open a 3-2 game with his second homer of the year. The veteran utility player has only started five of the last 11 games, but he's taking advantage of his opportunities. Following Tuesday's production, he's slashing .409/.435/.591 with the homer, six RBI and four runs in 23 plate appearances over that stretch.

Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Registers 11th RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored Sunday against the Astros.

Nunez tacked on an insurance run in the ninth inning, driving home his 11th run of the season on a groundout. The 31-year-old has struggled at the dish through the first third of the 2019 campaign, slashing .205/.220/.273 with four extra-base hits.

Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Seeing action at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez will serve as the Red Sox's designated hitter and will bat eighth Sunday against the Astros, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Though Nunez has been used largely as a utility infielder during his time in Boston, each of his last four starts has come at designated hitter with Michael Chavis having locked down a regular role at second base while Dustin Pedroia (knee) has been sidelined. With Pedroia and Brock Holt (shoulder) both in the midst of rehab assignments and nearing returns to the active roster, Nunez's opportunity to pick up semi-regular at-bats could soon take a hit.

May 4, 2019 02:16 PM
Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Activated Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez (back) was activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Saturday's game against the White Sox, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

He will serve as Boston's top utility player, getting starts at second base when Michael Chavis is out of the lineup or starting at third base or first base. Tzu-Wei Lin was placed on the 10-day IL with a left knee sprain as a corresponding move.

Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Slated to return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez (back) will be activated from the injured list prior to Saturday's game against the White Sox, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

Nunez has been cleared to rejoin the Red Sox after completing a brief minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket, going 2-for-15 with a homer in four games with the PawSox. The utility infielder will take the roster spot of Tzu-Wei Lin (knee), who is expected to land on the injured list Saturday.

Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez (back) went 0-for-4 while serving as the designated hitter for Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday, Steve Hewitt of the Boston Herald reports.

This was the first game of Nunez's rehab assignment. Manager Alex Cora wants to see him have at least 20 at-bats before he's activated.
