Lin remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Lin has been up with the Red Sox since Opening Day, but he's picked up only 10 starts through Boston's first 50 games. Even with the 18-31 Red Sox well removed from playoff contention, don't expect Lin to see his playing-time situation improved over the final week and a half of the regular season.
Lin started in center field and went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's 13-6 loss to the Phillies.
Jackie Bradley was scratched due to a sore right wrist, so Lin was deployed in center field for the first time in 2020. The utility infielder has played just eight career games in center, but the Red Sox didn't have many options as Andrew Benintendi (ribs) is on the injured list. Boston manager Ron Roenicke told Ian Browne of MLB.com that Bradley is feeling better, and the manager is hopeful he can return Wednesday against Philadelphia right-hander Jake Arrieta.
Lin started at second base and went 1-for-4 in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Yankees.
Lin filled in for Jose Peraza, who was given the day off after starting the first eight games. This was Lin's second start of the season; he filled in for an injured Xander Bogaerts at shortstop last Wednesday. He'll continue in a utility infielder role going forward but may not survive when rosters are trimmed. The Red Sox, who are 3-6 and missing their top two starters for the season, may decide to use the abbreviated campaign to take a deeper look at their roster. That could lead the organization to look toward the future and carry Rule 5 pick and utility infielder Jonathan Arauz instead of Lin.
Lin played first base in Sunday's intrasquad game, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.
Lin handled himself well at first, making a couple of nice picks. The versatile Lin has lined up at second base, shortstop, third base and center field in his three seasons with the Red Sox, so they are confident in his ability to add a new position. He could be used as Brock Holt's replacement this season in the versatility role.
Lin (hamstring) is starting at second base and batting eighth in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game versus the Rays.
The 26-year-old was shut down last week after exiting a game with left hamstring tightness, but his relatively quick return to game action indicates the injury was a minor concern. Lin seems likely to begin the 2020 season in the minors, but he figures to fill a utility role if and when he's called up.
Lin (hamstring) is expected to be shut down from baseball activities for the next two or three days, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.
The Red Sox don't believe the left hamstring tightness that forced Lin out of Tuesday's game against the Yankees is a major concern, but he'll require some maintenance time before resuming workouts. Even though he injury doesn't look like it'll jeopardize Lin's availability for Opening Day, he still probably finds himself on the outside looking in for one of the Red Sox's reserve infield jobs.
Lin left Tuesday's game against the Yankees with left hamstring tightness, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
The severity of the injury is not yet clear. Lin is on Boston's 40-man roster but wasn't considered a favorite to win a roster spot even when healthy.
Lin (concussion) is in the lineup for Monday's split-squad game against the Rays, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.
Lin ended last season dealing with a concussion, but he has put the issue behind him and will make his second appearance of the spring Monday. He will man third base and hit second in Boston's batting order.
Lin has been diagnosed with a concussion, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Lin, who last played with Pawtucket on Aug. 26, was scheduled to be evaluated by the medical staff Saturday. The 25-year-old Lin is on the 40-man roster and will presumably join the Red Sox later this month if he's able to pass concussion protocol.
Lin (shoulder) was activated off the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday.
Lin landed on the injured list in early May with a knee sprain, but he also had his rehab interrupted in mid-June due to a right shoulder impingement. The 25-year-old has been playing rehab games at Pawtucket over the last week and will remain there now that he's healthy.
Lin (knee) was pulled from his rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket due to a right shoulder impingement, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
Lin began a minor-league rehab assignment June 8 while making his return from a knee sprain, but he's now dealing with the shoulder issue. The 25-year-old appeared to be nearing his activation but after the setback has no timeline for his return.
Lin (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday, PawSox play-by-play announcer Mike Monaco reports.
Lin went down in early May with a strained MCL and a bone bruise in his left knee, but he's been able to ramp up his activity without issue. The 25-year-old has been taking batting practice with Pawtucket for a week and is now ready for game action. Lin figures to return to a bench role for Boston once healthy, seeing only sporadic opportunities around the infield.
Lin was determined to have a strained MCL as well as a bone bruise in his left knee, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.
Manager Alex Cora said Lin will be "out for a while," but felt the injury is not as bad as it initially appeared. Eduardo Nunez was recently activated off the injured list and steps into the role Lin had been filling.
Lin was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a left knee sprain, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
Lin suffered the injury Friday and flew back to Boston to be further evaluated. He is without a timetable to return. The Red Sox will swap out utility players, with Eduardo Nunez coming off the injured list in a corresponding move.
Lin (knee) will be placed on the injured list Saturday, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.
Lin suffered a sprained left knee during Friday's game against the White Sox, and the issue will force him to miss at least 10 days. According to Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe, the infielder will fly back to Boston for further evaluation, at which point a more concrete timetable for his return will hopefully emerge. In a corresponding move, Eduardo Nunez (back) will be activated from the injured list prior to Saturday's game.
Lin was removed from Friday's game against the White Sox with left knee soreness, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.
Lin suffered the injury while attempting to steal during the second inning Friday. The severity of the issue is not yet known, as the utility man is still be evaluated.
Lin exited Friday's game against the White Sox with an apparent lower-body injury, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.
Lin appeared to injure himself on a steal attempt in the second inning, and he was subsequently removed prior to taking the field during the bottom half of the frame. Steve Pearce took his place in the outfield.
Lin will start at second base and bat eighth Saturday against the Rays, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Though Michael Chavis received more attention of Boston's two infield callups Friday, it's Lin who has entered the starting nine in the Red Sox's subsequent two games. While Chavis offers intriguing power, he's rather inexperienced at the keystone and may rank only as an insurance option at the position while the Red Sox contend with a slew of injuries. That may leave Lin to act as the team's primary option at second base until one of Dustin Pedroia (knee), Brock Holt (eye) or Eduardo Nunez (back) is activated.
Lin was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
Lin returns to the Red Sox after a brief stay at Triple-A with Dustin Pedroia (knee) and Eduardo Nunez (back) both on the injured list. Lin and top prospect Michael Chavis -- who was also promoted Friday -- should fill in at second base for Boston in the meantime.
The Red Sox optioned Lin to Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
With Dustin Pedroia (knee) returning from the 10-day injured list to make his season debut in Tuesday's home opener versus the Blue Jays, Eduardo Nunez will transition into the utility role that had been Lin's domain in recent days. The 25-year-old Lin appeared in just one game during his brief stay in Boston but should take on an everyday role upon returning to Pawtucket.
