Rios (3-0) earned the win in relief Friday against the Yankees after tossing two scoreless innings, walking two and striking out one.
Rios pitched the fifth and sixth innings, and while he allowed two baserunners, he didn't suffer any damage and recorded the fifth scoreless outing over his last six appearances. The right-hander gave up runs in each of his first three outings of the season, but he settled down afterward. He has allowed six runs over his last 14.2 innings of work and owns a 4.58 ERA on the season.
Rios (2-0) tossed 1.2 scoreless innings while allowing just a walk and striking out a batter as he secured a win over the Royals on Tuesday.
Rios entered the game with one out in the fifth after Nick Pivetta allowed the Royals to re-take the lead on a two-run homer by Ryan O'Hearn. He recorded an easy five outs and was awarded the win after the Red Sox got the lead back in the bottom half of the sixth. The 28-year-old owns a 2.70 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 7:6 K:BB over 6.2 innings since being acquired June 14.
The Red Sox will activate Rios ahead of Wednesday's game in Atlanta, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Rios' status was in limbo after he was acquired from the Mariners on Monday, but rather than assigning him to Triple-A Worcester, the Red Sox will have him fill the 26th spot on the active roster. Utility man Michael Chavis was optioned to Worcester to create room for Rios, who gave up three runs in three innings over his three relief appearances for Seattle before he was traded.
Rios was traded from the Mariners to the Red Sox on Monday in exchange for cash considerations, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Rios was designated for assignment by Seattle on Friday, but he'll now be added to Boston's 40-man roster after Ryan Weber was designated for assignment as part of a shuffle. He'll likely report to Triple-A Worcester to begin his time with his new organization but could provide bullpen depth for the major-league club at some point.

Rios was acquired by Seattle from Tampa Bay on June 4 and was called up to the big leagues a day later. He failed to impress during his time with the Mariners, allowing a run in each of his three one-inning outings. The right-hander will be placed on waivers, where he could draw interest from team's in need of bullpen help.
Rios' contract was selected by the Mariners prior to Saturday's game against the Angels.
Rios was acquired by the Mariners from the Rays in exchange for cash considerations Friday. His stay with Triple-A Tacoma wound up being a short one, as now he's set to join the big club. The right-hander posted a 0.66 ERA and 0.76 WHIP in 13.2 innings with Triple-A Durham and he'll look to carry that success over to the big leagues.
Rios was traded from the Rays to the Mariners on Friday in exchange for cash considerations.
Rios was unable to break camp with the Rays to begin the year, but he's been dominant with Triple-A Durham. In 12 relief appearances, he's posted a 0.66 ERA and 0.76 WHIP in 13.2 innings. The right-hander has appeared in the majors in each of the last four seasons, but he'll likely report to Triple-A Tacoma going forward.
The Rays reassigned Rios to their minor-league camp Monday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Rios was one of six players cut Monday, leaving the Rays with 47 players left at big-league camp as the organization narrows down its roster to 26 ahead of Opening Day. The 27-year-old right-hander had been vying for a spot in the Tampa Bay bullpen after giving up four earned runs in four innings across three relief appearances with the Phillies in 2020.
Manager Kevin Cash said Rios (shoulder) was impressive in his throwing session Wednesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
The right-handed reliever is attending camp as a non-roster invitee after inking a minor-league deal with the Rays in January. He spent the 2020 campaign in the Pirates organization, making three appearances for the big club before being shut down for the season in mid-August with right shoulder inflammation. Rios now looks like he's back to full health ahead of the 2021 season.
Rios (shoulder) has signed a minor-league contract with the Rays that includes an invitation to spring training, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Rios elected free agency after being outrighted by the Pirates in late October. The right-hander made three appearances for Pittsburgh in 2020, allowing four runs on three hits and two walks across four innings. He'll now look to fight for a roster spot with Tampa Bay come spring training.

Rather than accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A Indianapolis, Rios will test the open market this winter, presumably in search of a minor-league deal that includes an invitation to major-league spring training. The 27-year-old reliever made three appearances out of the Pittsburgh bullpen in 2020, giving up four runs over four innings.
Rios (shoulder) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list and outrighted to the minors Friday, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
Rios allowed four runs in four innings this season, spending the majority of the year on the shelf with shoulder issues. He suffered a setback in early September, and it's not yet clear whether or not he'll continue to be affected by the start of spring training. Even if fully healthy, his 6.36 career ERA in 69.1 innings of relief likely makes him a very small part of the Pirates' plans.
Rios (shoulder) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Monday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Rios suffered a setback earlier in September and was shut down as a result. He'll officially be sidelined for the remainder of the season, and it's unclear whether he'll be ready for spring training in 2021 as he continues to recover from right shoulder inflammation. The right-hander made three relief appearances in 2020, posting a 0.00 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over four innings.
Rios (shoulder) suffered a setback and is no longer throwing, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
Rios has been sidelined since Aug. 15 as a result of right shoulder inflammation, but he had resumed playing catch from 120 feet Sept. 2. However, the right-hander has now been shut down following his setback. With just over two weeks remaining in the regular season, it's unclear whether Rios will return to the mound in 2020.
Rios (shoulder) is playing catch from 120 feet, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Rios was placed on the injured list Aug. 18 with right shoulder inflammation, but he has yet to progress to mound work. The 27-year-old is already eligible to be activated, but it's unclear when he's expected to be ready for game action.
Rios was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with right shoulder inflammation, retroactive to Aug. 15, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.
Rios hasn't seen game action since Aug. 8, so it's unclear when or how he sustained the injury. Nick Mears was recalled from the alternate training site in a corresponding move.
The Pirates selected Rios' contract from their alternate training site prior to Monday's 5-4 loss to the Twins, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
To make room for Rios on the 40-man roster and 30-man active roster, the Pirates transferred Michael Feliz (forearm) from the 10-day injured list to the 45-day IL and designated Robbie Erlin for assignment. Rios, who owns a 6.20 ERA over 63 career big-league appearances, is expected to work mostly in low-leverage spots out of the Pittsburgh bullpen.
Rios was outrighted off the Pirates' 40-man roster Sunday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Rather than invite Rios to summer camp, he will be a part of the taxi squad instead. The 27-year-old righty has a 6.20 ERA in 65.1 career MLB innings.
Rios was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.
Rios was potentially in contention for an Opening Day bullpen spot, but that door appears to be closed for now. With a career 6.20 ERA in 65.1 big-league innings, he's unlikely to fill anything other than a low-leverage role this season.
Rios was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday.
After coming over from Philadelphia on a waiver claim, Rios went on to make nine appearances out of the Indianapolis bullpen, posting a 2.35 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 12:4 K:BB over 15.1 innings. He struggled mightily both at Triple-A and in the majors with the Phillies, leading to his DFA, but Rios is only 26 and throws 96 mph on average with his fastball. The Pirates will give him a look down the stretch to see if there's something there.
