Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Gives up six runs Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta (6-2) was tagged with the loss Saturday against the Blue Jays after allowing six runs on six hits and two walks while fanning six across five innings.

Pivetta had given up just two runs in each of his last two appearances, but he was unable to display the same kind of poise on the mound against one of the strongest offenses in the American League. He's now dropped two of his last three decisions and owns a 4.28 ERA. Pivetta is scheduled to make his next start on the road against the Royals next week.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Falls one out short of victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta allowed two runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out six across 4.2 innings Monday against the Marlins. He didn't factor into the decision.

Pivetta made it through the first three innings unscathed before surrendering one run in the fourth and another in the fifth on a solo blast to center. Had he managed to record one more out, he would have qualified for the victory, but instead, Hirokazu Sawamura was credited with the win. Pivetta struggled in his last two starts to close out May (eight earned runs allowed across 11 innings), but he's back on track in June, holding the opposition to four runs while fanning 15 in 10.2 frames since.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Takes first loss Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta (6-1) allowed two earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out nine across six innings, taking the loss Wednesday against the Astros.

Pivetta delivered his fourth quality start but took his first loss of the season. The Red Sox offense provided just a single run in support of Pivetta. The 28-year-old leads Boston with six wins and has a 3.77 ERA. He has struck out nine batters in each of his last two starts and carries a 10.3 K/9. He'll look to get back in the win column Monday against the Marlins.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Settles in, remains unblemished
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta (6-0) earned the victory over Atlanta on Wednesday, allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out nine.

Pivetta was shaky early, giving up three runs over the first two innings, but he settled in over the final four frames to remain undefeated in 2021. He was going to come back out for the seventh inning, but heavy rains fell in Boston after the sixth and delayed the game nearly three hours before the teams completed the game. Pivetta next lines up to pitch Tuesday on the road against Houston.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Another no-decision Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta did not factor into the decision in Thursday's 8-7 win over the Blue Jays. He allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out eight over five innings.

Pivetta, who entered the game 5-0 with a 3.16 ERA, wasn't at his best but pitched better than the line indicated. The Red Sox committed three errors, and the Blue Jays didn't hit many hard balls off him. It was the second straight no-decision for the right-hander, who is next scheduled to pitch Wednesday against Atlanta at Fenway Park.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Settles for no-decision Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 4-3 win over the Angels, giving up two runs on four hits over six-plus innings. He struck out seven without walking a batter.

He delivered his second straight quality start and third of the season, but Pivetta was denied his sixth win when Anthony Rendon led off the top of the seventh inning with a single to drive the right-hander from the game, and Matt Andriese subsequently let Rendon come around to score. Pivetta will take a 3.16 ERA and 42:22 K:BB through 42.2 innings into his next outing.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Back from COVID IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox reinstated Pivetta from the COVID-19-related injured list Thursday.

Minutes after manager Alex Cora told the media that he was hopeful Pivetta would feel well enough to start Friday's game against the Angels, the Red Sox activated the right-hander. Now in the clear after experiencing some adverse effects from his second vaccine shot earlier this week, Pivetta should face few limitations, if any, during Friday's outing. Boston optioned reliever Eduard Bazardo to Triple-A Worcester in a corresponding move.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Hopeful to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Alex Cora said Pivetta (illness) was feeling better Thursday, leaving the Red Sox optimistic he'll be ready to start Friday's game against the Angels, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Boston placed Pivetta on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday after he experienced side effects of a second vaccine shot. The transaction gave Boston some extra flexibility in the short term, but the team will have to make a corresponding roster move in order to reinstate Pivetta. Assuming Pivetta is continuing to feel well Friday, he should be cleared to take the hill for the series opener.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Lands on COVID IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday while experiencing side effects from the vaccine.

The 28-year-old picked up the win Sunday against the Orioles with a quality start and apparently received the vaccine in the past couple days. Pivetta lined up to start Friday against the Angels, and he could still return from the COVID IL to pitch if he's feeling better.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Earns fifth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta (5-0) allowed two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out two in six innings to earn the win against the Orioles on Sunday.

Pivetta gave up a run in the bottom of the first inning Sunday, but he then retired 12 of the next 13 batters before he allowed a solo home run in the bottom of the fifth. Pivetta has allowed at least two runs in five of his first seven starts, but he's picked up five wins while avoiding the loss column to begin the year. He could make his next start at home against the Angels on Friday.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Improves to 4-0
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta (4-0) allowed three earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out eight across five innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Tigers.

Pivetta allowed four hits and two earned runs in the second inning, accounting for most of the damage against him. However, he was solid otherwise, racking up eight strikeouts on 18 called strikes and 10 swinging strikes across 100 total pitches against one of the weakest lineups in the league. He owns a 3.23 ERA with a 33:19 K:BB across 30.2 innings so far this season. Pivetta is projected to take his next turn through the rotation Sunday at Baltimore.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Fans seven in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta (3-0) pitched five shutout innings, allowing a hit and three walks with seven strikeouts to earn the win Wednesday versus the Mets.

Pivetta was effective once again in a game he absolutely needed to be, as Mets ace Jacob deGrom only allowed one run in the contest. The 28-year-old Pivetta has a 2.81 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 25:17 K:BB across 25.2 innings in five starts. While the free passes are a little concerning, he's done well to limit the damage from issuing so many walks. The right-hander's next start is expected to be Tuesday versus the lowly Tigers.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Six effective innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta allowed two earned runs on one hit and three walks while striking out four across six innings Thursday against the Mariners. He did not factor into the decision.

Pivetta held the Mariners without a hit through 5.2 innings and had surrendered only one walk in that span. However, he unraveled before getting his final out, walking two and surrendering a game-tying double. Even so, it was an encouraging outing for Pivetta, as he matched his longest start of the season and needed only 86 pitches to record 18 outs. He now has a 3.48 ERA across 20.2 innings to begin the campaign, but he'll need to improve on his 18:14 K:BB. Pivetta is projected to draw his next turn through the rotation Wednesday at the Mets.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Shows command issues Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta allowed two runs on four hits and four walks while fanning three across 3.2 innings Saturday against the White Sox. He didn't factor into the decision.

Pivetta entered Saturday's start spotting a 11:7 K:BB through his first 11 innings, and it seems the command issues could be here to stay with the right-hander. He has now walked at least three in each of his first three outings of the season and those command issues might be a problem in the long run. It's still early in the season, but he owns a 4.1 BB/9 thus far and that'd be a career-worst mark for him.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta will start Saturday against the White Sox, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

Pivetta's scheduled start Friday was rained out, and he will take the mound for Saturday's late afternoon contest. The right-hander's won his first two starts, benefitting from pitching when the Red Sox's hitters broke out after being swept by the Orioles in the opening series of the season.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Friday's game postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta and the Red Sox won't play the White Sox on Friday as the game was postponed due to inclement weather.

Boston is receiving some heavy rain Friday, leading to the postponement. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Sunday. The Red Sox have yet to officially announce their updated pitching plans, but Pivetta figures to take the mound Saturday.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Whiffs seven in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta (2-0) allowed four runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out seven in six innings to earn the win against the Orioles on Sunday.

Pivetta began Sunday's game by tossing three scoreless frames but faltered slightly in his final three innings. Although the Orioles made a push in the final few innings Sunday, Pivetta picked up his second win in as many starts due to a strong offensive showing by Boston. The right-hander has posted a 3.27 ERA and 1.45 WHIP with 11 strikeouts in 11 innings to begin the season. Pivetta should make his third start of the year at home against the White Sox on Friday.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Cruises to easy win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta (1-0) picked up the win in Monday's 11-2 rout of the Rays, allowing two hits and four walks over five scoreless innings. He struck out four.

The right-hander threw only 52 of 92 pitches for strikes, but Pivetta was able to avoid any damage despite his control issues and got more than enough support from Boston's bats. He'll look to build on a successful Red Sox debut in his next scheduled start Sunday in Baltimore.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Falls behind counts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta allowed six runs on six hits and three walks while striking out three over four innings in Sunday's spring game against the Pirates.

Pivetta lamented his fastball command when speaking with Christopher Smith of MassLive.com. "Got behind a lot of guys. It's never fun to pitch behind (in the count). So that was a bit of a negative today but made some good pitches, got some weak contact," said Pivetta. The right-hander had been sharp during his first three Grapefruit League outings before falling victim to wavering command Sunday. Pivetta will get two more spring starts to clean up whatever issues were presented Sunday.

Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Throws four innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta allowed four hits, a walk and a run while striking out four over four innings in Monday's spring game against the Rays.

Pivetta had some early issues, giving up hits to the first two batters and a run in the first inning. After that, he worked around all the traffic encountered over the final three innings. Pivetta has pitched well during Grapefruit League play, allowing three runs in nine innings as he continues solidifying securing his spot in the rotation.
