Red Sox's Hector Velazquez: Scheduled to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez will start Wednesday in Atlanta, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Velazquez has performed capably as a swingman so far this season, posting a 3.24 ERA in six starts and 33 relief appearances. He's set to square off against Mike Foltynewicz.

Red Sox's Hector Velazquez: Enters for injured Price
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez entered Wednesday's game after starter David Price was forced to leave due to a left wrist injury. He allowed two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out three over three innings.

Price was diagnosed with a left wrist contusion and X-rays were negative, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports, but he's going to undergo further testing and may not be able to make his next start. If Price is unable to take the ball next Monday against Atlanta, Velazquez is an option to start. Or manager Alex Cora could make it a bullpen start, using some of the arms Boston calls up when rosters expand this weekend.

Red Sox's Hector Velazquez: Confirmed for Friday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez is scheduled to start Friday's game against the Rays, Craig Forde of MLB.com reports.

As anticipated, Velazquez will pick up a second turn through the rotation with Chris Sale (shoulder) not ready to return from the 10-day disabled list. While Sale's injury isn't viewed as a significant setback, no reports have surfaced that the lefty has resumed throwing yet, so it's possible that he'll miss out on additional starts beyond Friday. Velazquez may not necessarily serve as Sale's replacement in the rotation, though, with Eduardo Rodriguez (ankle) also nearing a return. The 29-year-old Velazquez covered four innings (73 pitches) in his previous start Aug. 19 against the Rays, giving up one run on three hits and three walks while striking out two.

Red Sox's Hector Velazquez: Remains fill-in for Sale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez will continue to take the spot in the rotation for Chris Sale (shoulder), Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

Sale was placed on the disabled list Saturday for the second time in less than a month and has yet to resume throwing. He'll miss his next turn through the rotation, so Velazquez will get at least one more start. Manager Alex Cora sounded adamant about not pushing Sale, so Velazquez could receive another start beyond his expected start Friday at Tampa Bay.

Red Sox's Hector Velazquez: Takes first loss of season in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez (7-1) took the loss Sunday against the Rays, allowing one run on three hits and three walks through four innings. He struck out two.

Making a spot start for the injured Chris Sale (shoulder), Velazquez held his own and limited the damage to a second-inning solo homer before handing the ball off to Brandon Workman prior to the fifth frame. The Red Sox failed to provide any run support, leaving Velazquez on the hook for his first loss of the season, but the 29-year-old pitched well enough to earn another spot start down the line should an opportunity arise. He owns a solid 2.74 ERA across 65.2 innings this season.
