Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Provides needed length
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese allowed one run on three hits and struck out five over three innings in Tuesday's 7-1 loss to the Astros.

Houston's belligerent lineup chased starter Martin Perez early, so the Red Sox turned to their multi-inning reliever out of the bullpen. This was the sixth time in 19 outings that Andriese has thrown more than two innings. The 31-year-old right-hander has a 4.88 ERA over 27.2 innings.

Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Hits rough patch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese (1-2) picked up the loss Monday after allowing three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out two over two-plus innings against Baltimore.

Andriese was well rested and ready to pitch multiple innings when he came on in the sixth inning for starter Martin Perez. The game was tied at one apiece -- but not for long. The first batter he faced, Trey Mancini, took him deep over the center field wall. Andriese was later victimized by a fluky triple off the bat of Cedric Mullens. Andriese has been a convenient pocket knife out of the bullpen, working in a variety of situations, but he's hit a rough patch since the start of May. He's lost twice while allowing seven runs on 11 hits and three walks over his last four outings.

Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Takes loss Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese (0-1) suffered his first loss Saturday, allowing three runs on three hits and a walk while striking out one in one inning against Texas.

Andriese had been stellar out of the bullpen in a variety of roles until Saturday's blowup. He entered the game with a 1.42 ERA.

Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Holds lead in eighth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese pitched a perfect eighth inning for his second hold in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Mets.

The eighth inning of a close game is usually a situation for Adam Ottavino, but he had pitched three of the previous four games. Andriese is pitching well in a variety of bullpen roles, permitting just two earned runs and striking out 11 over 12.2 innings.

Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Leads bullpen effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese allowed one unearned run on three hits and struck out two over three innings in Saturday's 7-4 win over the White Sox.

Boston starter Nick Pivetta lasted just 3.2 innings, leaving it to the bullpen to get through the game. After Josh Taylor finished the fourth, Andriese held the White Sox in check until the Red Sox's bats heated up in the eighth inning. The right-hander has been the team's most versatile reliever, logging both effective multi-inning stints and high-leverage appearances in late innings. Andriese has a 1.86 ERA and just one clunker among his six appearances.

Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Saves extra-inning win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese picked up the save Saturday, striking out one over a scoreless 10th inning in a 6-4 extra-inning win over Baltimore.

This was Boston's first game that was headed toward needing a ninth-inning closer, but Adam Ottavino surrendered a one-run lead by giving up two runs in the eighth inning. When Boston tied the game in the top of the ninth, Matt Barnes, who was going to get a save opportunity, came on and got the game into extra frames. After the Red Sox plated two in the top of the 10th, manager Alex Cora went with Andriese, whose primary role is that of a multi-inning reliever, for the save. Andriese has allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out six over six innings. Two of his four appearances have lasted more than three outs.

Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Beginning year in bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Alex Cora said Andriese rejoined the team Tuesday and is slated to begin the season in the bullpen, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Andriese had been away from the team for only a few days due to COVID-19-related contact-tracing concerns, so he should be ready to go for Opening Day. Though Eduardo Rodriguez (arm) is expected to begin the season on the injured list, the Red Sox are expected to turn to Tanner Houck rather than Andriese to fill in as the fifth starter to begin the season.

Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Away from team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese was scratched from his spring start against the Pirates on Saturday due to contact tracing, Sean McAdam of reports.

Manager Alex Cora announced Saturday that right-hander Matt Barnes has tested positive for COVID-19, and Andriese is one of several members of the organization who will be away from the team due to contact tracing. Andriese is expected to serve as a swingman for Boston this year, but it's not yet clear whether he'll be able to return to the team in time for Opening Day.

Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Throws four scoreless innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese allowed two hits and a walk while striking out three over four scoreless innings in Tuesday's spring game against Atlanta.

Andriese pitched in relief after game starter Tanner Houck. Both pitchers were on the fringe of the rotation, as Boston manager Alex Cora kicked around the idea of six-man rotation. Cora announced Tuesday he will go with a five-man rotation, per Ian Browne of He didn't name the five, but it's fairly obvious it will consist of Eduardo Rodriguez, Nathan Eovaldi, Garrett Richards, Martin Perez and Nick Pivetta. As such, Andriese is expected to pitch in a swing role, while Houck, who struggled mightily with command in Grapefruit League play, will likely head to the alternate site, and eventually, Triple-A Worcester.

Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Retires all six batters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese struck out one over a scoreless two innings in Thursday's spring game against the Orioles.

Andriese retired all six batters faced during a strike-zone pounding outing. At this point, Andriese is being prepared as a starter and reliever and will likely pitch in both roles, but he could emerge in the rotation if Boston deploys a six-man rotation. Red Sox manager Alex Cora is working with a six-man starting staff during spring training but has not committed to that configuration for the regular season.

Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Will start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese will start Thursday's spring game against Baltimore, Chris Cotillo of reports.

The Red Sox are rolling out a six-man rotation during the first week of spring games but are not committing to that number for the regular season. Andriese has been used as both a starter and a reliever during his MLB career and will be stretched out during spring training.

Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Possible swing man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boston manager Alex Cora said Andriese is being targeted for a swingman role, Chris Cotillo of reports. "We're going to stretch him as a starter and see where we go throughout spring training," Cora said. "He'll be ready to do anything. He'll be our utility guy in the pitching staff.

Cora mentioned Brian Johnson, who served in a similar role for the 2018 champion Red Sox, when discussing Andriese's likely role in 2021. Johnson threw 99.1 innings in 2018, making 13 starts and 25 appearances out of the bullpen. It should be a familiar role for Andriese, who has made 50 starts and 123 relief appearances during a six-year MLB career.

Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Reaches one-year deal with Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese signed a one-year, $1.85 million contract with the Red Sox, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

Per Cotillo, the deal also includes a $3.5 million club option for 2022. Andriese worked largely in a long-relief role for the Angels this past season, posting a 4.50 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 33:11 K:BB in 32 innings. The 31-year-old should get the opportunity to compete for a spot in a Red Sox rotation otherwise lacking in reliable options.

Matt Andriese: Hits open market
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese was non-tendered by the Angels on Wednesday.

He has operated as a long reliever and/or swing man for his entire career and has not logged an ERA under 4.50 since 2016. Last year, he posted a 4.50 ERA and a career-best 1.00 WHIP, so he should catch on somewhere, but he may need to accept a pay cut.

Angels' Matt Andriese: Picks up save in second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese picked up the save against the Rockies on Sunday, striking out four across two scoreless innings. He did not allow a baserunner.

After Andriese picked up his first save of the campaign in Saturday's win, manager Joe Maddon didn't hesitate to go right back to the right-hander Sunday. Andriese logged two clean innings, striking out four Rockies while not allowing a baserunner. Though Ty Buttrey and Felix Pena have received the bulk of save opportunities in recent weeks, it would not be surprising to see Andriese get another shot to close going forward.

Angels' Matt Andriese: Collects first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese earned the save against Colorado on Saturday, pitching a perfect inning and striking out one batter.

With usual closer Ty Buttrey having been deployed in the 10th inning, the Angels turned to Andriese to shut the door on the Rockies after jumping to a three-run lead. The right-hander was up to the task, needing only seven pitches to nail down the save. Andriese hasn't been all that effective for the Angels this season -- he has a 5.40 ERA over 10 outings -- so he'll likely resume his low-leverage role moving forward.

Angels' Matt Andriese: Takes loss in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese (1-2) was tagged with the loss against Seattle on Monday, throwing 1.2 innings and allowing one run on one hit and one walk while striking out two.

Andriese came on in the fifth inning and retired the final two batters of the frame, but a Jose Marmolejos solo homer in the following inning was enough to saddle the right-hander with a loss in the low-scoring affair. Andriese had aspirations of starting to begin the season but has struggled throughout the campaign, posting a 6.41 ERA and 1.47 WHIP over 19.2 innings.

Angels' Matt Andriese: Pitches out of bullpen Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese allowed one run on three hits in three innings of relief against the Mariners on Wednesday. He struck out one batter.

Andriese piggybacked Julio Teheran, who lasted just 2.2 innings as he continues to build up his workload. The right-hander now owns a 4.35 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 7:4 K:BB through 10.1 innings this season. According to Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register, manager Joe Maddon said he really likes Andriese in the bullpen, so it's possible he shifts to a long-relief role moving forward.

Angels' Matt Andriese: Can't escape second inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese (0-1) allowed four runs on four hits and three walks while striking out only one in 1.2 innings in a loss to the Astros on Friday.

Andriese's short outing Friday forced to Angels to dig deep into the bullpen, ultimately using nine total pitchers in the high-scoring battle with the Astros. It was Andriese's first start of the year -- he previously tossed 5.2 scoreless innings against the Athletics in relief of Shohei Ohtani on July 26. The bad outing inflated Andriese's ERA to 4.91 in 7.1 innings this season. He's expected to face the Rangers on the road next Friday in his next start.

Angels' Matt Andriese: Makes appearance in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andriese allowed just three hits and a walk while striking out five in 5.2 innings in relief of Shohei Ohtani during Sunday's loss to the Athletics.

Andriese was needed in a long-relief role Sunday as Ohtani failed to record an out in the first inning. Andriese performed admirably on short notice, allowing the Angels to pull within a run while he was on the mound. The 30-year-old right-hander will all but certainly not make his scheduled start Tuesday versus the Mariners -- it remains to be seen when he'll start his first game of the year.
