Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Records two outs in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad pitched two-thirds of an inning and walked a batter in Sunday's matchup with the Reds.

The 31-year-old left-hander has accrued a 2.93 ERA across 43 innings this season with the Red Sox, improving from a 3.66 ERA in 2016. Despite these solid numbers, Abad is near the back of the bullpen, and has pitched mainly in low-leverage situations (33.2 of his 43 innings). He will see very few opportunities as the season ends and the Red Sox make their playoff run.

Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Seeing slight decrease in strikeouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad is holding hitters to a .219 average this season and has 23 strikeouts in 31 innings this season.

The southpaw has pitched well for the Red Sox this season, but he has seen his strikeout numbers drop to 18.6 percent after seeing them hover in the low twenties each of the last three seasons. Despite the success, the pecking order in Boston's bullpen is pretty solidified at this point, limiting the potential for Abad to move into more high-leverage situations.

Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Lights out since start of May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad has a 1.72 ERA and 1.09 WHIP over 15.2 innings since the start of May.

The veteran left-hander has yet to record a hold this season but is pitching well in low-leverage situations for the Red Sox. Abad has recorded only 13 strikeouts across 21 innings this season, but has pitched well against lefties, as they hold a .214/.258/.357 slash line against him.

Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Not receiving meaningful chances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad has struck out six and walked two in 8.1 innings during May.

Abad is posting a WHIP of 1.00 in 13.2 innings, third among Red Sox relievers, trailing only fellow lefty Robby Scott and closer Craig Kimbrel. Despite that, he hasn't received much trust from manager John Farrell. Seven of his last eight appearances have come in games that were decided by three runs or more, including his recent poor showing Wednesday against Seattle when he gave up two runs in 0.1 innings with his team already trailing 3-0. The biggest hurdle between Abad and more meaningful playing time is Scott, as Farrell has shown Scott is his preferred southpaw out of the bullpen so far this year.

Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Makes first high-leverage appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad entered Friday's game with one out and two men on in the eighth inning and struck out two in Boston's 5-4 win over the Cubs.

The appearance was Abad's sixth of the season, the fewest among the relievers who have been on Boston's roster all season, and the first in a high-leverage spot. Manager John Farrell has preferred Robby Scott in such situations, but he was burned earlier in the game. Abad was clearly pumped after striking out pinch hitter Matt Szucur and then Kyle Schwarber, holding the lead for closer Craig Kimbrel. This one moment was the brightest highlight of his Red Sox career to date.
