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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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+.
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.
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.
Weber could make a spot start Thursday in Toronto, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Nathan Eovalid (elbow) is at least a couple weeks away from returning to the rotation, so Boston will be forced to use less-than-stellar options in that rotation spot in the short term. The other option is Hector Velazquez, who has a 6.41 ERA in 19.2 innings as a starter this season. Weber had a 5.04 ERA and 18:5 K:BB in 25 innings as a starter at Triple-A this season, so he isn't an ideal option either.
Weber is being considered to make a spot start next Sunday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports. The newly added right-hander hurled four scoreless innings in Monday's 4-1 loss to Baltimore.
Weber started the day in Rhode Island, flew to Baltimore after his contract was selected, then had a bullpen-saving performance Monday night when starter Josh A. Smith was gone after 3.1 innings. He featured a slider, cutter and changeup Monday, giving batters a different look than they typically see in the majors. "It's not like the radar gun isn't going to get your eye," manager Alex Cora said, "but the movement will be there." The Red Sox are navigating a rotation that doesn't have David Price (elbow) or Nathan Eovaldi (elbow), so Weber becomes an intriguing option for the manager. Both Weber and Smith are being considered for Sunday's start against the Mariners.
Weber's contract was selected from Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday.
Weber has a career 5.01 ERA in 73.2 major-league innings, and he maintains a 5.04 ERA through five starts for Pawtucket this season. He's up to replace David Price, who landed on the injured list Monday with elbow tendinitis. It's not clear if he'll be taking Price's rotation spot in addition to his roster spot, but Weber was on the same pitching schedule as Price and would be available to start Tuesday's game against the Orioles if the Red Sox want to go in that direction. The Red Sox have three off days in the next 11 days and can get by without a fifth starter for an extended period after Tuesday.
Weber was reassigned to minor-league camp Monday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Weber allowed three runs in nine innings of work this spring. He's not on the 40-man roster but could still be an option when injuries strike the big-league pitching staff.
Weber agreed to a minor-league deal with Boston on Friday that includes an invite to spring training, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
Weber will provide extra depth to the Red Sox staff after spending last season in the Rays' organization. He only pitched in two big-league games but posted a 2.73 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with an 83:23 K:BB across 115.1 innings for Triple-A Durham. Weber has the ability to serve as a starter or multi-inning reliever.
The Rays outrighted Weber to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday.
Weber went unclaimed off waivers after being designated for assignment over the weekend, so he'll stick with the organization as relief depth in the high minors. The 27-year-old was roughed up in his first two appearances with the big club this season, giving up three earned runs on five hits and two walks over 5.1 innings.
The Rays designated Weber for assignment Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Weber churned out a 2.05 ERA in 74.2 innings for Triple-A Durham this year but was saddled with a 5.06 ERA in 5.1 big-league frames. The 27-year-old will either accept a minor-league assignment with Durham or get a chance to find a depth role with another organization via trade or free agency.
