Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Heads back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox optioned Smith to Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Smith will head back to the farm to clear a spot on the active roster for Steven Wright, whose 80-game suspension came to an end following Monday's 6-5 win over the White Sox. During his latest stint with the big club, Smith appeared twice out of the bullpen, logging four innings and giving up one run while striking out seven.

Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Back in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Hector Velazquez (back) was sent back to the injured list in a corresponding move, allowing Smith to rejoin the Red Sox just two days after returning to the minors. In eight appearances for the big club this season, Smith owns a 6.28 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 12:4 K:BB in 14.1 innings.

Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox optioned Smith to Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Boston no longer had a need to keep Smith around as a long-relief option after Hector Velazquez (back) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Monday's series opener in Minnesota. During his latest stint with the big club, Smith appeared in three games and gave up four runs (two earned) across three frames.

Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Picks up save Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith got the save against the Rangers on Thursday, working around a walk to toss a scoreless ninth inning and lock down a 7-6 victory for the Red Sox. He struck one.

It was the first save of Smith's major-league career, as he successfully protected a one-run lead in this contest after getting recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday. This could be an indication the Red Sox are planning on using Smith out of the bullpen, although he has made two spot starts this season. Either way, Smith has struggled in his time with the big club in 2019, sporting a 5.84 ERA in 12.1 innings.

Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

Smith will take the roster spot of Darwinzon Hernandez, who was sent to Double-A Portland following his spot start Tuesday, though it remains to be seen whether the right-hander will initially slot into the bullpen or starting rotation. The Red Sox are in need of a fifth starter Sunday, and Smith is a candidate to fill that role after making a spot start for Boston last weekend (allowing four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out three in four innings against the Rays). Brian Johnson (elbow) is also an option to start for the Red Sox on Sunday.

Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Back at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket following his spot start in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader with the Rays.

The Red Sox required a six-man rotation last week due to the twin bill, resulting in Smith moving up to the big club as the 26th man for the doubleheader. Smith ended up taking the loss after serving up four runs on seven hits and one walk in four innings, with Boston apparently deeming him unworthy of another turn in the rotation. After the Red Sox sent the struggling Ryan Weber back to Triple-A a couple days prior to Smith's demotion, Double-A Portland pitcher Darwinzon Hernandez now looks like the leading candidate to join the big-league rotation the next time a fifth starter is needed Tuesday against the Rangers.

Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Strikes out three in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (0-2) gave up four runs over four innings and was saddled with the loss in the first game of a doubleheader against Tampa Bay on Saturday. He allowed seven hits and one walk while striking out three.

Smith gave up all four runs in the second inning, with most of the damage coming from a Travis d'Arnaud three-run homer. The 31-year-old was making his first start of the season although he had made three prior relief appearances. He now holds a 6.35 ERA and 1.59 WHIP along with a 9:3 K:BB.

Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Called up prior to spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket prior to his start Saturday in Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Rays, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

The 31-year-old journeyman has a 4.23 FIP and 41:10 K:BB in 31 innings with Pawtucket. In his lone MLB start this year, he gave up four runs in 3.1 innings against the Orioles. He was called up as the 26th man and will likely be sent back to Triple-A after this start.

Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Starting Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith has been confirmed as the starter for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

Smith will serve as a starter during his upcoming stint in the big leagues, and he figures to be sent back to Triple-A Pawtucket following his outing, assuming he's being brought up as the 26th man. David Price is set to start the nightcap.

Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Set for callup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith will be called up from Triple-A Pawtucket for Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Smith worked as both a starter and a reliever during his stint with the Red Sox in May and allowed four runs on eight hits across 7.1 innings. The 31-year-old could make a quick return to Pawtucket after Saturday's twin bill, assuming he's set to serve as the 26th man.

Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Demoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Smith was called up April 26 and made four appearances with the big-league club, managing a 4.91 ERA with six strikeouts across 7.1 innings. His demotion will open a roster spot for David Price (elbow) to be activated for Monday's start.

May 18, 2019 11:20 AM
Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Remains in bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is expected to be available in relief Saturday against the Astros with the Red Sox naming Hector Velazquez the starter for the contest, NESN.com reports.

Smith made a spot start for the Red Sox back on May 6, but his lone appearance since then came in relief last weekend against the Mariners. He worked behind Velazquez in that game and could do so again Saturday with Velazquez having maxed out at only 63 pitches this season. The Red Sox currently have only four healthy starters in their rotation, but it doesn't look like Smith will have an opportunity to fill out the fifth spot with David Price (elbow) slated to return from the 10-day injured list Monday.

Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Takes loss in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (0-1) took the loss against the Orioles on Monday, giving up four earned runs on five hits over 3.1 innings in a 4-1 defeat for the Red Sox. He struck out three and walked two.

Making his first start of the season, Smith was hit with the loss against the Orioles after giving up a second-inning grand slam to Jonathan Villar that accounted for all the runs against him. Despite his 5.26 career ERA at the big-league level, Smith may be asked to stick around for a couple more turns in the rotation, given the injuries to David Price (elbow) and Nathan Eovaldi (elbow).

Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Will start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith has been named the starting pitcher for Monday's game against the Orioles, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

Smith will get the nod for Monday's series opener after his last scheduled start was postponed due to weather. He's made one other appearance this season for Boston, striking out one over a scoreless inning Friday against the White Sox. The 31-year-old right-hander, who's delivered a 3.78 ERA with 23 strikeouts and just five walks in 16.2 innings, hasn't yet been hinted for a potential second start Sunday versus Seattle.

Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Won't pitch due to weather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith won't pitch Friday against the Rays after the game was called off due to weather, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

The game won't be made up until June 8, so it remains to be seen when Smith will pitch next, if at all. He was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket specifically for Friday's start.

April 26, 2019 06:00 PM
Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Called up and starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith's contract was selected from Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday. He'll start Friday against the Rays.

The 31-year-old has thrown 127.1 career major-league innings, mostly in relief. He hasn't had much success, posting a 5.30 ERA and a 5.07 FIP. Travis Lakins was optioned to Pawtucket in a corresponding move.

March 18, 2019 01:08 PM
Red Sox's Josh A. Smith: Assigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox reassigned Smith to their minor-league camp Monday, Christopher Smith of MLB.com reports.

Smith was one of 11 players demoted as the Red Sox trimmed their big-league camp contingent with Opening Day less than two weeks away. The 31-year-old right-hander, who last appeared in the majors with Oakland in 2017, is expected to report to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Indians' Josh Smith: Sent to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was reassigned to minor-league camp by the Indians on Friday.

Smith signed a minor-league deal with the Indians in November and allowed five runs (four earned) on nine hits across five innings during spring training. The 31-year-old should start the season at Triple-A Columbus and serve as organizational pitching depth for Cleveland.

November 28, 2018 09:00 PM
Indians' Josh Smith: Signs with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith signed a minor-league contract with the Indians on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Smith spent the past two seasons on Boston's farm, splitting time between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket. Pitching primarily for the PawSox in 2018, the 29-year-old lefty posted a 3.01 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 97:43 K:BB across 98.2 innings (28 appearances, 14 starts).

Red Sox's Josh Smith: Inks minors deal with Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Smith was cut loose by the Mariners in April after struggling to a 6.10 ERA and 1.98 WHIP across four appearances (one as a starter) with Triple-A Tacoma. He did post a solid 14:3 K:BB over that stretch. Smith will likely report to Triple-A Pawtucket where he'll serve as organizational pitching depth for the Red Sox.
