Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Throws live BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber threw live batting practice to several Red Sox regulars Monday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

Weber's strong spring put him in line for the No. 4 starter, and there's been nothing to diminish that outlook. He doesn't throw hard, but Weber changes speeds and commands. "Ryan is so consistent, so pinpoint, his stuff is so consistent," said center fielder Jackie Bradley. "Inside, outside, cutting it, two-seaming it, sliding it, curving it, he's looking good right now. I'm glad he's on our side." If he's named the fourth starter, Weber would be make his regular season debut July 27, at home against the Mets.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Inside track to rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber was close to locking down the No. 4 starter job in spring training and is expected to be part of the rotation in the regular season, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

Weber didn't allow an earned run in nine spring innings and was closing in on a rotation slot when the coronavirus pandemic paused the season. Weber's not an overpowering pitcher, so he'll need to be precise in his command to succeed and have good defense behind him.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Could join starting rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber could serve as a member of Boston's starting rotation in 2020, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Weber was seen as a potential back-end starter heading into 2020, but the combination of a strong spring and Chris Sale (elbow) electing for Tommy John surgery led interim manager Ron Roenicke to name him as a candidate to begin the season in the starting rotation. The 29-year-old pitched nine scoreless innings while recording 11 strikeouts and no walks during spring training. Roenicke also named Brian Johnson as an option to serve as a starter, but it would appear as though Weber would have the slight edge after his strong showing this spring.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Strong against Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber allowed one hit while striking out four over four scoreless innings in Monday's spring game against the Braves.

Weber handled the Braves with aplomb, showing movement on his two-seamer while seemingly cementing a spot in the rotation. "His fastball, he moves one this way and the next one he cuts in; he's fun to watch," interim manager Ron Roenicke told Dawn Klemish of MLB.com. "He works quick. 'Here it is,' and the outcome has been really good so far." Weber's allowed one unearned run on six hits while striking out 11 without a walk over nine spring innings. There's nothing overpowering about Weber, but he's earned a spot at the back end of the rotation, one that might still be there when Chris Sale (elbow) returns.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Makes case for rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber allowed one unearned run on three hits while striking out six over three innings in Monday's spring game against the Tigers.

Weber is making a strong case to be added to the back end of the rotation. The finesse right-hander threw two shutout innings in his Grapefruit League debut last week against Baltimore. With two spots available -- one a full-time gig and the other temporary as a replacement for Chris Sale (illness) -- interim manger Ron Roenicke is flirting with the idea of using an opener for one of those two spots, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports, but the manager would rather someone emerge as a traditional starter.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Makes first spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber allowed two hits while striking out one over two scoreless innings in Tuesday's spring game against the Orioles.

Weber, who is a candidate for Boston's fifth-starter job, is a throwback in the current game in that high-end velocity is not a part of his repertoire. His fastball tops out in the high 80s, and he must get by on guile more than overpowering batters. "Weber, you know what you're going to get right away," manager Ron Roenicke told Ian Browne of MLB.com. "If he is commanding the ball, he throws a lot of strikes. They make quick outs, he's fun to watch. I know he gets in trouble when his command isn't on. But he knows how to pitch. He's got a great mix." Weber is among a list of largely uninspiring options that Roenicke is considering for the rotation.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Could fill final rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Red Sox interim manager Ron Roenicke was asked twice last week about his plans for the fifth starter spot, and he mentioned Weber in both of his answers, Stevie Hewitt of the Boston Herald reports. "He's a guy I like because he's right at you," Roenicke said. "He throws strikes. When his command's good, he gets some easy outs and it's fun to watch him. So we'll figure it out. But I think there's a few guys. It's not just one or two guys."

Boston has a glaring hole at the back end of the rotation with David Price traded to Los Angeles as part of the Mookie Betts deal. The in-house options are underwhelming, and it seems Weber may be atop the list for now. The 29-year-old Weber is more of a finesse pitcher who relies on his sinker to generate weak contact, with little swing-and-miss to his game (career 14.8 K%). He had a 7.94 ERA in his three starts for the Red Sox last season.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Scoops win in return from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket ahead of Sunday's 4-3 win over the Angels. He was the pitcher of record in the contest, tossing two scoreless innings in relief to improve his record to 2-2.

With David Price (wrist) limited to two innings in his return from the 10-day injured list, manager Alex Cora turned to five relievers to close out the contest. Weber was the most impressive of those bullpen arms, permitting only two baserunners while pumping in 20 of his 32 pitches for strikes. Boston will have a need for a fifth starter next weekend against the Yankees, and Weber could gain consideration for the nod in light of his Sunday's performance.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Demoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber (1-2) was hit with the loss after surrendering a run on a hit and a walk over one inning Sunday against the Angels. He was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket following the game, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Weber was called upon in the top of the 10th inning in a tie ballgame, but he allowed the game-winning run on a single to right field. The Red Sox have yet to announce a corresponding move following Weber's demotion.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox recalled Weber from Triple-A Pawtucket ahead of Sunday's game against the Yankees, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

He'll provide Boston with a fresh long-relief arm after the big club optioned bullpen members Josh A. Smith and Colten Brewer back to Triple-A Pawtucket following Saturday's doubleheader. Over eight appearances (three starts) with the Red Sox this season, Weber has posted a 5.25 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 24 innings.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Moving back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox optioned Weber to Triple-A Pawtucket after Friday's 11-2 loss to the Orioles.

The right-hander will cede his spot on the active roster to Nathan Eovaldi (elbow), who was reinstated from the 60-day injured list in a corresponding move. Weber has made three starts for Boston this season, but he worked exclusively in relief during his latest stint with the big club, giving up four runs (three earned) in 4.2 innings over his two appearances.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Returns from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox recalled Weber from Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

He'll move up to the active roster as a replacement for long reliever Hector Velazquez, who was sent back to Pawtucket following Sunday's 7-4 loss to the Dodgers. Three of Weber's previous six appearances with Boston came as a starter, but he'll work out of the bullpen with the Red Sox recently acquiring Andrew Cashner from the Orioles to round out their rotation.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday.

Weber has made three starts and three relief appearances this season, recording an unimpressive 5.12 ERA in 19.1 innings. He'll make way on the roster for Mitch Moreland (back), who returns from the injured list in a corresponding move.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Pulled quickly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber allowed two earned runs on five hits and no walks while striking out one across 1.1 innings Thursday against the Royals. He did not factor into the decision.

Weber worked through the first inning without incident but ran into trouble in the second frame, surrendering four consecutive hits -- including a double and homer -- before being pulled. The Red Sox bullpen picked him up to avoid any further damage, though it's clear the team was willing to grant Weber little latitude to struggle going into he start. With Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) nearing a return from the injured list, Weber's time in the rotation figures to be short. If he gets another turn in the starting five, his next start will likely come Tuesday against Texas.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Confirmed as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber will receive the starting nod for Thursday's game against the Royals, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

As anticipated, Weber will stick in the rotation for at least one more turn despite being lit up for seven runs in four innings in his previous outing May 29 against the Indians. Weber is expected to move back into a long-relief role or head back to Triple-A Pawtucket once Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) is ready to return from the 10-day injured list, likely around mid-June.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Likely starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber will likely start Thursday against the Royals, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

It sounds like the Red Sox will stick with Weber for at least one more turn through the rotation, despite the fact he allowed seven runs on eight hits in four innings against the Indians his last time out. Mike Shawaryn will be available as a long reliever behind Weber in case he struggles again.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Hit hard Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber (1-1) allowed seven earned runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out two across four innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Indians.

Weber never got comfortable in this start, surrendering at least one earned run in each inning. While he only allowed one home run, he allowed a total of six extra-base hits that accounted for much of the damage. Weber had pitched admirably prior to Wednesday's start, carrying a 1.29 ERA into the contest, though much of that work came out of the bullpen. With this performance, the team could decide to turn back to Hector Velazquez as its fifth starter until Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) is ready to return to the mound. Regardless, with an upcoming day off Monday, the Red Sox will be able to skip their fifth starter for at least one turn through the rotation.

May 29, 2019 12:56 PM
Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Gets another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber will start Wednesday's game against the Indians.

The Red Sox have mostly leaned on Hector Velazquez as their fifth starter since Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) has been sidelined, but Weber received a look in the rotation last week against the Blue Jays and performed well enough to earn at least one more turn. In that outing in Toronto, Weber worked six innings, giving up one run on three hits and no walks while striking out four. He'll get another favorable draw Wednesday versus a Cleveland offense that ranks 26th out of 30 teams against right-handed pitching with a 79 wRC+.

Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Wins with quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber (1-0) tossed six one-run innings while earning the win Thursday against the Blue Jays, allowing three hits with four strikeouts and no walks.

Weber seemed to keep the home team off balance during much of his outing as he drew 21 called strikes. The lone damaging blow against him came on a third-inning rally, but he escaped and easily came away with a quality start. Weber seems poised to make at least one more start, which should come next week against Cleveland.

May 22, 2019 06:04 PM
Red Sox's Ryan Weber: Confirmed as Thursday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber will start Thursday's game in Toronto, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

While it is a favorable matchup, Weber had a 5.04 ERA and 18:5 K:BB in 25 innings as a starter at Triple-A this season, so he is hardly an appealing streamer in fantasy leagues. Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) is at least a couple weeks away from returning to the big-league rotation, so Weber could make a few MLB starts if he can keep his head above water.
