Red Sox's Zack Godley: Transferred to 45-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley (elbow) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Saturday.

Godley suffered a right elbow flexor strain in early September, and he's now officially sidelined for the remainder of the season. The right-hander finishes the 2020 campaign with a career-worst 8.16 ERA and 1.95 WHIP over 28.2 innings across eight appearances (seven starts). The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for outfielder Cesar Puello, whose contract was selected in a corresponding move.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right elbow flexor strain, retroactive to Sept. 7.

Godley only lasted three innings in his last start as he was charged with his fourth loss of the season Friday. It's unclear whether the right-hander will be able to return prior to the end of the season. Matt Hall was recalled in a corresponding move and could be a candidate to start while Godley recovers.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Drops fourth decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley (0-4) lasted just three innings and took the loss against the Blue Jays in the first game of Friday's doubleheader. He allowed four runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four in an 8-7 loss.

Godley permitted a pair of long home runs in the second inning as the Red Sox were playing catch-up from a large early deficit. Godley's ERA shot up to 8.16, but Boston doesn't have an arm to replace him, so he's expected to make his next start Thursday on the road against Tampa Bay.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Allows five runs in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley allowed five runs on eight hits and one walk across 4.2 innings in Sunday's 9-5 win over the Nationals. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

The Red Sox spotted Godley an early 5-0 lead, but the right-hander ran into trouble in the third, fourth and fifth innings, ultimately preventing him from qualifying for the win. He exited with Boston leading 8-5 with two outs in the fifth. Godley will look to lower his 7.71 ERA when he takes the ball against Toronto on Friday.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley will start Sunday in place of the injured Nathan Eovaldi (calf), Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Godley will be making his sixth start for the Red Sox. He's 0-3 with a 7.29 ERA, 1.95 WHIP and .319 batting average against in six outings (five starts).

August 24, 2020 07:24 PM
Red Sox's Zack Godley: Charged with third loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley (0-3) allowed three runs on two hits and five walks while striking out three over 2.2 innings as he was charged with the loss Sunday against the Orioles.

Godley has alternated between effective performances and appearances in which he has struggled to limit offensive production. He gave up three runs Sunday, and he was charged with his third loss of 2020 as a result. The right-hander has been inconsistent this season, and he's been unable to earn a win behind Boston's struggling offense in any of his six appearances (five starts). Godley will try to bounce back at home Saturday against the Nationals.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Pitches well in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley gave up a run on four hits and a walk and struck out four over four innings in a no-decision versus the Phillies on Tuesday. He also hit a batter.

Godley has alternated good and bad appearances this season, with Tuesday's being one of the better ones. The strong outing lowered his ERA to 6.87 with a 1.85 WHIP and 18 strikeouts across 18.1 innings. The righty still hasn't pitched more than four innings in a game, and combined with inconsistent results, it makes him a risky option for fantasy managers. Godley will likely take the mound again Sunday in Baltimore.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Rocked for 10 hits, eight runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley (0-2) allowed eight runs on 10 hits and two walks over three innings in a loss to the Rays on Wednesday. He struck out three batters.

Starting on short rest, Godley dug the Red Sox an early hole and the Rays just piled on with three homers. Godley's ERA now sits at 8.16 through 14.1 innings. He has sandwiched a couple decent starts around his clunkers -- not nearly good enough to take on the risk of another blowup.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Starting on short rest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley will start on short rest Wednesday against the Rays, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

The 30-year-old delivered four scoreless frames during Saturday's start, and he'll be asked to start on three days rest his next time out with the Red Sox still scrambling with the rotation. Godley has a 3.97 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 11:4 K:BB through 11.1 innings this season.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Strong in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley tossed four scoreless innings, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out three in a no-decision versus the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Godley did his part Saturday, but the Red Sox mustered just one run and four hits, and that wasn't enough. The 30-year-old righty has a 3.97 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with 11 strikeouts in 11.1 innings this season. He'll likely keep working up to a starter's workload in his next appearance, which is expected to be Thursday versus the Rays.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Roughed up early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley (0-1) took the loss Saturday against the Yankees after allowing five runs on six hits over 3.1 innings. He had one strikeouts and two walks.

The veteran right-hander was in trouble early, as Aaron Judge took him deep during the opening frame, and Gio Urshela clubbed a grand slam during the second inning. Godley reached 69 pitches Saturday and should continue ramping up toward a full starting workload. He lines up to next take the mound next weekend versus the Blue Jays.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Set to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley will start Saturday's game against the Yankees, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

The veteran right-hander made his Boston debut Monday and allowed only four hits while recording seven strikeouts over four scoreless innings, and he'll remain on the five-day schedule for Saturday. Godley is unlikely to have a traditional starter's workload his next few starts after throwing 53 pitches during Monday's outing, but he should continue ramping up his pitch count.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Could join rotation Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley has a chance to join Boston's rotation after impressing in his debut outing Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. He tossed four shutout innings as the primary pitcher against the Mets, allowing four hits with zero walks and seven strikeouts.

Given how decimated Boston's rotation is, Godley clearly earned a turn every fifth day, it's just a matter of whether he continues to be used as a primary pitcher or gets deployed like a traditional starter. His next appearance figures to be Saturday in Yankee Stadium.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Contract selected by Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley had his contract selected by the Red Sox and was added to the major-league roster Sunday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

The veteran right-hander missed the cut for the Opening Day roster, but he'll join the team before the third game of the season. Godley seems a likely bet to join Boston's starting rotation at some point given the team's lack of established options. Per Bill Koch of The Providence Journal, manager Ron Roenicke said, "We'll see about [Monday]. We should pitch him somewhere."

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Misses cut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley did not make the 30-man roster, but could be stretched out at some point while working at the alternate training site, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

With Eduardo Rodriguez out indefinitely due to complications in his recovery from COVID-19, the Red Sox enter the season with very few established big-league starters. Godley fired three no-hit innings against the Blue Jays in Wednesday's scrimmage, and he has as much experience as any healthy Boston starter other than Nathan Eovaldi, so he will likely be heard from at some point this summer.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Three shutout innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley fired three no-hit innings, allowing one walk and striking out two Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

The game was shortened after four-and-a-half innings due to rain, but it was an encouraging sign for Godley, who is battling for a spot in the back end of the rotation or a bulk-innings guy.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Throws two innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley pitched two innings in Saturday's intrasquad game, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Godley, who signed with the Red Sox on Friday, went straight to work the following day. He hadn't pitched since the previous Friday, so the Red Sox were not about to push him. He worked out of a bases-loaded jam in his first inning, then allowed a two-run home run to Jonathan Arauz in his second. The Red Sox will get a look at the right-hander over the next few days and gauge him for a possible rotation slot. Godley is scheduled to throw two or three innings in next Wednesday's exhibition game against Toronto.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Put to work immediately
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldley will pitch in Saturday's intrasquad game, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

After Godley was released by the Tigers on Monday, the Red Sox signed him Friday and will put him to work immediately. The right-hander will then pitch in an exhibition game against the Blue Jays next Wednesday. The plan is to have him throw one or two innings Saturday, then two or three against Toronto. Godley has an opt-out after the first week of the season if he's not on the major-league roster at the end of July. With Boston's starting rotation so thin, there's a good chance an experienced starter like Godley will be on the team.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Inks minor-league deal with Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Friday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Godley was released by the Tigers on Monday, but he'll find a new home with the Red Sox with one week remaining until Opening Day. He was officially added to the team's 60-man roster and will likely report to the team's alternate training site. The right-hander should serve as organizational depth this season.

July 13, 2020 11:08 AM
Zack Godley: Let go by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers released Godley on Monday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Even with the statuses of Michael Fulmer (elbow) and Daniel Norris (illness) uncertain heading into the season opener, Godley didn't garner any serious consideration for a rotation spot during summer camp. With 81 career MLB starts under his belt, Godley becomes one of the more experienced rotation arms on the open market, but expect interest in the 30-year-old to be relatively muted. Since posting a 3.37 ERA for the Diamondbacks in 2017, Godley has struggled mightily the past two seasons, compiling a 5.16 ERA and 11.0 K:BB over 270.1 innings.
