Red Sox's Austin Brice: Works out of jam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice struck out three over 1.1 scoreless innings in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Blue Jays.

Although Brice wasn't credited with a hold, he deserved some kind of notoriety for the win. He entered in the seventh inning with two on, two out and got ended the threat. The right-hander then struck out the side in the eighth. After a shaky start to the season, Brice has not allowed a run or a hit while striking out eight over his last 5.1 innings. With both Josh Taylor (illness) and Darwinzon Hernandez (illness) unavailable, Brice could be deployed in high-leverage situations.

Red Sox's Austin Brice: Scoreless inning as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice allowed two walks and struck out three in a scoreless inning as the opener versus the Yankees on Sunday. He did not factor into the decision.

A fielding error by Jose Peraza and Brice's two walks created a bases-loaded situation, but the righty struck out Luke Voit to escape the jam. Brice has a 6.35 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 5.2 innings this season, mostly as a reliever. The 28-year-old isn't likely to enter the closer conversation any time soon.

Red Sox's Austin Brice: Opening Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice will start Sunday's game against the Yankees, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

The right-hander has struggled through his first 4.2 innings of the season with four runs allowed, but he'll receive the chance to serve as the opener for the series finale in New York. Brice did deliver a scoreless frame against the Yankees on Friday, recording one strikeout and hitting a batter.

Red Sox's Austin Brice: Has first scoreless outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice struck out one and hit a batter over a scoreless inning in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Yankees.

This was Brice's fourth appearance, the first in which he hasn't allowed a run. The 28-year-old has permitted four runs on five hits, including two home runs, and a walk over 4.2 innings. Home runs have been an issue for the reliever, who has allowed 1.8 HR/9 during his five-year MLB career.

Red Sox's Austin Brice: Has strong spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice allowed three hits and one walk while striking out 10 over 6.2 scoreless Grapefruit League innings.

Brice will likely make the roster for an eventual Opening Day based on his strong spring. That notion was reinforced when Boston relegated Colten Brewer to the minors. The 27-year-old right-hander has been more effective against same-sided batters during his career, but Brice holds his own against left-handed hitters. He's expected to pitch the middle innings, including multiple-inning appearances.

Red Sox's Austin Brice: Dominant in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice (forearm) gave up a single and walk and fanned four hitters over 1.2 scoreless innings of relief Monday against the Rays in his Grapefruit League debut.

While he was a member of the Marlins organization in 2019, Brice was shut down in August for the remainder of the season with a right forearm strain. He was then traded to Boston in January and apparently completed his rehab program without incident before reporting to spring training. The 27-year-old isn't a lock to make Boston's Opening Day bullpen, but he made a strong early case for a spot with Monday's dominant showing.

Red Sox's Austin Brice: Shipped off to Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice (forearm) was traded from the Marlins to the Red Sox in exchange for Angeudis Santos.

He finished the season on the injured list with a right forearm strain and was then designated for assignment earlier this week. Boston apparently liked Brice enough to see what he has to offer this year in camp. He has a high-spin curveball and has had success against righties, so he could win a bullpen spot if he is fully healthy this spring.

Marlins' Austin Brice: Dumped from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Marlins designated Brice (forearm) for assignment Tuesday, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

With Miami officially announcing its signing of outfielder Corey Dickerson, Brice was removed from the 40-man roster. The 27-year-old reliever was actually one of the Marlins' more reliable bullpen arms in 2019, turning in a 3.43 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 44.2 innings before being shut down in late August with a right forearm strain.

Marlins' Austin Brice: Sent back to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday due to a right forearm strain, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

Brice was sidelined from mid-July until Aug. 8 due to a flexor strain, and he'll head to the IL again with a similar injury. A timeline for his return has not yet been established.

August 9, 2019 10:40 AM
Marlins' Austin Brice: Back from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice (forearm) was activated from the injured list Thursday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Brice has been sidelined since mid-July with a flexor strain, but he's been cleared to rejoin the Marlins after completing a brief minor-league rehab stint with High-A Jupiter. The right-hander compiled a sharp 1.88 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 38:14 K:BB in 38.1 innings prior to landing on the shelf, so he should assume a role near the back end of Miami's bullpen now that he's healthy. Tyler Kinley was sent to the minors to free up a roster spot for Brice.

Marlins' Austin Brice: Rehabbing at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice (forearm) is scheduled to make a rehab appearance Monday with High-A Jupiter, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Brice kicked off his rehab at Jupiter on Saturday, striking out two over a perfect inning while working as the Hammerheads' opening pitcher. The Marlins plan on having him record at least four outs in Monday's outing in what could be his final test before returning from the 10-day injured list. Once activated, Brice should immediately reclaim a high-leverage role in the Miami bullpen after posting a 1.88 ERA and 38:14 K:BB in 38.1 innings prior to getting shut down.

Marlins' Austin Brice: Not expecting long absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice (forearm) underwent an MRI on Tuesday and was encouraged by the results, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

Brice landed on the 10-day injured list with a right forearm flexor strain Tuesday, but he doesn't anticipate a long absence. The righty has been an effective weapon for the Marlins this season, recording a 1.88 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in 38.1 innings of work.

July 16, 2019 02:40 PM
Marlins' Austin Brice: Out with flexor strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice landed on the 10-day injured list with a right forearm flexor strain Tuesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Brice's injury certainly hasn't shown up in the numbers, as he hasn't allowed a run in any of his last 10 appearances, recording a 15:1 K:BB over that stretch. It's not clear how much time he's expected to miss. Tayron Guerrero (finger) was activated from the injured list in a corresponding move.

June 26, 2019 11:40 AM
Marlins' Austin Brice: Strong June continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice struck out one in a perfect ninth inning during Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

It wasn't a high-leverage spot with the Marlins down 6-1, but Brice still continued his recent run of effectiveness. The right-hander has posted a 0.96 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 8:4 K:BB through 9.1 innings in June with a win and two holds, but pitching for the team with the worst record in the National League limits his fantasy utility even in deep formats.

Marlins' Austin Brice: Picks up second hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice allowed one hit in a scoreless seventh inning to record his second hold of the season in Wednesday's win over the Tigers.

The 26-year-old right-hander continues to give the Marlins effective innings. Brice sports a 1.89 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 16:9 K:BB through 19 frames, but he remains buried in a lower-leverage role in a Miami bullpen that features a number of relievers with much more impressive fastballs and prospect pedigrees.

Marlins' Austin Brice: Rejoins Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice (illness) was activated off the 10-day injured list Friday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Brice has been on the IL since mid-April as he dealt with a bout of gastroenteritis, and he made a three-game rehab stint at High-A Jupiter. The 26-year-old had a strong start to the season before landing on the IL with a 2.61 ERA and 1.16 WHIP over 10.1 innings.

April 16, 2019 03:36 PM
Marlins' Austin Brice: Heads to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday due to gastroenteritis, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

Brice is likely to be ready to return after the 10-day minimum given the nature of the issue, although Miami will be without one of their more reliable arms out of the bullpen until then. In a corresponding move, Jarlin Garcia was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans.

April 16, 2019 04:24 PM
Marlins' Austin Brice: Solid start to season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice walked one in 1.1 scoreless innings of relief during Monday's loss to the Cubs.

The right-hander has provided the Marlins with mostly solid innings so far, posting a 2.61 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 8:5 K:BB through 10.1 frames. Brice is pitching in low-leverage situations -- he doesn't have a win, save or hold in six appearances -- and has minimal fantasy value, but he at least is pitching well enough to keep his big-league job.

March 25, 2019 04:12 PM
Marlins' Austin Brice: Secures bullpen job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice has secured a spot in the Miami bullpen to begin the regular season, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

After breaking into the big leagues with the Marlins in 2016, Brice spent the past two seasons in Cincinnati before returning to Miami prior to spring training on a waiver pickup. The right-hander is likely to open the season as a middle reliever, but he could move up quickly in the bullpen pecking order given the lack of impact arms slotted ahead of him.

February 4, 2019 05:40 PM
Marlins' Austin Brice: Scooped by Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brice was claimed off waivers by the Marlins on Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Brice is set to join his fourth team this offseason. The right-hander pitched for the Marlins back in 2016, though he spent the previous two seasons with the Reds, bouncing between Triple-A and the majors. Across parts of three big-league seasons, Brice owns a career 5.68 ERA and 7.7 K/9 in 84.0 innings.
