Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Sunday that Arroyo (hamstring) is progressing, but the infielder is without a timeline to return from the 10-day injured list, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
Arroyo strained his left hamstring just as Boston was preparing to give him a look as its primary first baseman, and the fact that he won't be ready to move past the injury quickly likely means that he won't be guaranteed a meaningful role once he eventually returns. Boston is expected to rely on a combination of Bobby Dalbec, Michael Chavis and Franchy Cordero to hold down the fort at first base in the meantime, with the team presumably hoping that one of the three catches fire at the plate and seizes control of the everyday gig.
Arroyo hit the injured list as expected with a left hamstring strain Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Arroyo started at first base for the first time in his career Sunday, a position he was expected to occupy on a regular basis going forward, with the arrival of center fielder Jarren Duran pushing Enrique Hernandez in to second base. Arroyo lasted less than three innings at his new spot before injuring his hamstring while stretching to catch a throw. He'll be out for at least 10 days, with Danny Santana (quadriceps) returning from the injured list in a corresponding move. Santana could split time with Bobby Dalbec at first base until Arroyo returns.
Red Sox manager Alex Cora said after Sunday's loss to the Yankees that Arroyo (hamstring) will likely need to spend time on the injured list, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.
Arroyo was diagnosed with a left hamstring strain after he left Sunday's game, and it's not yet clear whether he'll need to spend more than the minimum of 10 days on the injured list. The injury comes at a tough time for Arroyo, who was set to move into a full-time role after Cora announced prior to the contest that the 26-year-old would displace Bobby Dalbec as the team's primary first baseman versus right-handed pitchers. If the Red Sox elect not to give the starting job back to Dalbec, Danny Santana (quadriceps) -- who is set to be activated from the IL on Monday -- could serve as the primary replacement for Arroyo at first base.
Arroyo was removed from Sunday's game against the Yankees due to a left hamstring strain, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Arroyo suffered the injury while stretching to retrieve a throw to first base Sunday, and he's apparently dealing with a hamstring issue. Whether he's forced to miss additional time remains to be seen, but Bobby Dalbec and Danny Santana (quadriceps) could step in at first base if Arroyo is sidelined.
Arroyo exited Sunday's game against the Yankees with an apparent injury, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
Arroyo was shaken up when he stretched to retrieve a throw to first base in the bottom of the third inning, and he was immediately replaced by Bobby Dalbec at first base. He went hitless in his lone plate appearance prior to suffering his injury. The nature and severity of the 26-year-old's injury aren't yet clear.
Red Sox manager Alex Cora said prior to Sunday's game against the Yankees that Arroyo will serve as the team's primary first baseman versus right-handed pitching, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.
Arroyo will assume those duties from Bobby Dalbec, who has lost hold of the gig after striking out in 35.5 percent of his plate appearances on the month while posting a poor .484 OPS. Dalbec is still expected to make regular starts versus left-handed pitching, but Arroyo should have a path to playing time against southpaws at second base. Arroyo, who will bat ninth Sunday, could be an intriguing pickup in deeper mixed leagues now that he'll be getting a look in an everyday role.
Arroyo went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a double in Friday's 4-0 win over the Yankees.
The 26-year-old took Yankees starter Jordan Montgomery deep in the second inning. Arroyo has posted multiple hits in three of his last five games, going 7-for-20 (.350) with a homer, three doubles, four RBI and three runs scored in that span. He's posted a .270/.327/.467 slash line with six long balls, 24 RBI and 21 runs scored across 166 plate appearances overall.
Arroyo lined up at first base during pregame warmups Thursday, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
Thursday's game was eventually postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions, but it did give a look into the Red Sox's plans after the organization promoted Jarren Duran from Triple-A Worcester. Arroyo has been the primary second baseman for the first half, but his role in the second half will change in light of Duran's promotion. The rookie is expected to be the primary center fielder -- why promote him if he's not going to play every day -- while Enrique Hernandez, the team's leadoff hitter, moves to second base. Arroyo could steal first-base at-bats from Bobby Dalbec, who's been up and down -- mostly down -- at the plate.
Arroyo isn't starting Thursday against the Yankees, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Arroyo will retreat to the bench with Enrique Hernandez starting at second base and Jarren Duran making his major-league debut in center field. While Arroyo could see a slight decrease in playing time now that Duran has joined the big-league roster, manager Alex Cora said that the 26-year-old will likely start against all left-handed pitchers going forward.
Arroyo went 3-for-3 with two doubles, an RBI, a run scored and a walk in Sunday's loss against the Phillies.
Arroyo hadn't hit a double since June 7 but delivered two in this one as part of a perfect day at the plate -- it was just his eighth multi-hit performance of the season. The infielder is hitting .264 with a .762 OPS, 11 doubles, five homers, 23 RBI and 21 runs scored on the season.
Arroyo went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in Monday's 5-4 win over the Angels.
Arroyo got the Red Sox on the board in his first at-bat since June 20 with a solo home run to left field. The 26-year-old is slashing .266/.329/.453 with five homers, 20 RBI, 18 runs scored, a steal and a 6:38 BB:K over 141 plate appearances. Arroyo should have a clear path to regular starts at second base now that he's back from his brief stint on the injured list.
Arroyo (knee) will be activated from the 10-day injured list before Monday's game against the Angels, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports
As expected, the 26-year-old makes his return for the series opener in Anaheim. Arroyo figures to be Boston's everyday second baseman, especially because Michael Chavis was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.
Arroyo (knee) will travel to Anaheim and is expected to be activated for Monday's game against the Angels, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Arroyo appeared in a couple rehab games with Triple-A Worcester and is poised to rejoin the active roster for Monday's series opener. The 26-year-old is hitting .264/.324/.432 with four homers and 19 RBI this season, and he should reclaim a regular role at second base once activated.
Arroyo (knee) will play rehab games with Triple-A Worcester on Friday and Saturday and could join the Red Sox in Anaheim on Monday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Recent updates have suggested that Arroyo has fully recovered from his right knee bruise, and that he just requires some rehab at-bats before rejoining the big-league club. If not Monday, the 26-year-old's return will likely occur sometime early next week.
Arroyo (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Worcester on Thursday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
Arroyo is expected to return to the major-league club during the Red Sox's weekend series in Oakland, and he said that he feels great heading into his rehab assignment. The 26-year-old expects to serve as the designated hitter in Thursday's rehab game. He's been sidelined since June 21 due to a right knee contusion.
Arroyo (knee) is expected to return for the Red Sox's upcoming weekend series in Oakland, if not sooner, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.
As anticipated, the 26-year-old will not have missed much time with his bruised right knee, which he suffered June 20 in Kansas City. Before the injury, Arroyo had hit .250 with four homers and 14 RBI in his last 15 games. It's unclear whether Michael Chavis, Danny Santana or another player will be sent down to Triple-A Worcester, but Arroyo figures to get frequent starts at second base regardless.
Arroyo's stay on the injured list with a bruised right knee is expected to be a brief one, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
The Red Sox originally thought Arroyo could avoid a trip to the injured list after he got hurt in a collision with teammate Enrique Hernandez back on June 20. While he was unable to do so, he's progressing well and isn't set to miss much more time. He'll be eligible to return Thursday, though the Red Sox have yet to confirm whether or not he'll do so.
Arroyo was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right knee contusion Thursday, retroactive to June 21.
While manager Alex Cora was initially optimistic that Arroyo could avoid a trip to the injured list, he was seen limping on the field ahead of Wednesday's game against the Rays and will now have some additional time to recover. It's not yet clear whether he could spend more than the minimum of 10 days on the injured list, but he'll be eligible to return in early July. Enrique Hernandez and Marwin Gonzalez could fill in at second base in his absence.
Arroyo (shin) was seen limping on the field before Wednesday's game against the Rays, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Seeing as though he's still having trouble walking, the 26-year-old would need to make significant progress to play Thursday. If he can't recover in the next few days, Arroyo may find himself on the injured list.
Arroyo (shin) isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Rays, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
Arroyo suffered a bone bruise on his right shin during Sunday's game against the Royals, although X-rays revealed no structural damage. Manager Alex Cora is optimistic that the 26-year-old can avoid a trip to the injured list, and he's running on the field ahead of batting practice Wednesday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. However, he'll be out of the lineup for a second straight contest, while Enrique Hernandez will start at second base and bat eighth.
