Brewer was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Brewer looked sharp before spring training was put on hold, posting a 2.16 ERA, 0.72 WHIP and 9:2 K:BB across 8.1 innings, but he's still on track to open the year in the minors. The righty is a candidate to shuttle between Boston and Pawtucket in 2020.
Brewer allowed one hit and struck out three over 2.2 scoreless relief innings in Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.
Red Sox interim manager Ron Roenicke was impressed enough with Brewer's outing that he said the right-hander will be stretched out even further in a "B" game on the back fields, Dawn Klemish of MLB.com reports. "He's throwing the ball great," Roenicke said. "He's so much more aggressive in the strike zone. Last year was kind of off and on ... but right now, what I see, he's just getting after it. Just going right at people." If the Red Sox opt to use an opener in lieu of a fifth starter or as a stopgap while Chris Sale (elbow) is out of action, Brewer will part of that crew.
Brewer was called up by Boston on Wednesday.
Brewer has spent most of the season in Boston. His 4.31 ERA is adequate enough, but both his 19.6 percent strikeout rate and 13.8 percent walk rate are poor.
The Red Sox optioned Brewer to Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.
Brewer covered three innings in relief over the past three days and appeared in both ends of Saturday's doubleheader with the Yankees. Since he was unlikely to be available out of the bullpen in the next day or two, the Red Sox likely demoted Brewer mainly for the purpose of swapping him out with a fresh arm in Ryan Weber, who was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.
Brewer picked up his third hold, working a scoreless eighth inning in Monday's 2-0 win over the Twins.
Brewer, who has not allowed a run in seven June games, put the first two men on before wriggling out of the jam. Manager Alex Cora turned to Brewer to protect a 1-0 lead in the eighth, as Boston's regular eighth-inning relievers had thrown a lot of pitches of late. Prior to his scoreless run this month, Brewer had a 5.87 ERA and 1.74 WHIP in 23 innings.
Brewer was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday.
Brewer opened the season in the Red Sox's bullpen and remained there until being optioned Sunday. He's back after a very brief absence and will look to improve upon his 5.32 ERA and 1.68 WHIP. Mitch Moreland (back) landed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
The Red Sox optioned Brewer to Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday.
With starting pitcher David Price (illness) exiting early in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Astros, Brewer was needed in long relief. Brewer got the job done, scattering five hits but keeping Houston off the board over 2.1 innings. Since the heavy workload would have left him unavailable for the next day or two, the Red Sox decided to exchange Brewer for a fresh bullpen arm in Darwinzon Hernandez, who was recalled from Double-A Portland in a corresponding move.
Brewer (0-1) allowed a run on three hits while striking out one in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Diamondbacks.
Brewer came on in the ninth inning of a tied game while Matt Barnes warmed in the bullpen, something manager Alex Cora had to explain following the game. "Where they were in the lineup, the way that Brewer has been throwing the ball, we liked him there," Cora told Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald. "We felt the matchups were good for us. It just didn't work out." Brewer entered the game with a 0.00 ERA and just one hit allowed while striking out six in three innings.
Brewer has been awarded one of the spots in Boston's bullpen to start the season, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.
Brewer, who was acquired from the Padres during the offseason, had a rough go of it when he made his MLB debut last season. He still has options remaining, so Brewer could be on the Boston-Pawtucket shuttle in 2019. The right-hander had a 3.60 ERA over 10 Grapefruit League innings.
Brewer was traded from the Padres to the Red Sox in exchange for infielder Esteban Quiroz on Tuesday, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports.
The Padres needed space on their 40-man roster for brighter prospects, so they dealt Brewer in order to clear things up a bit. The 26-year-old struggled in his first taste of the majors, allowing six runs on 15 hits in 9.2 innings of work. However, he did show potential at Triple-A, producing a 3.75 ERA and 63:15 K:BB in 48 frames with El Paso. Brewer figures to compete for a bullpen role with the Red Sox, though he'll need to improve against big-league hitters during spring training to have a chance of sticking on the active roster.
Brewer was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday.
Brewer is back with the big club after finishing out the minor-league season with El Paso. The 25-year-old has allowed six runs (two earned) on eight hits across 3.2 big-league innings this season and figures to work primarily in lower-leverage situations down the stretch. Brewer posted a respectable 3.75 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with 63 strikeouts in 48 innings with the Chihuahuas.
Brewer was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.
Brewer allowed two runs on three hits and a walk while recording just two outs in his first appearance back from the disabled list Wednesday. He'll smooth things out in the minors before likely returning sometime in September after rosters expand. Thursday's starter, Eric Lauer (forearm), was reinstated from the disabled list in a corresponding roster move.
Brewer (oblique) was activated from the disabled list Tuesday.
The 25-year-old had been out since late July with an oblique strain. Prior to the injury, he pitched three scoreless innings at the major-league level. Clayton Richard was placed on the 10-day disabled list in a corresponding move.
Brewer (oblique) began a rehab assignment at Triple-A El Paso on Saturday and struck out two over a perfect inning during his appearance in the affiliate's 4-3 win over Las Vegas.
Brewer has been sidelined since July 22 with a left oblique strain, so he'll likely require at least a couple more appearances in the minors before the Padres bring him back from the 10-day disabled list. The right-hander will presumably be ticketed for middle-relief duties once he rejoins the big club.
Brewer was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left oblique Monday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Brewer has thrown three innings for the Padres this season and has yet to give up an earned run. Joey Lucchesi was recalled from Triple-A El Paso in a corresponding move.
Brewer was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Friday.
The Padres needed to restock their bullpen after dealing Brad Hand and Adam Cimber to the Indians in exchange for Francisco Mejia on Thursday. Brewer has only appeared in two games for San Diego this season and will likely be utilized in low-leverage situations while with the team.
Brewer was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday.
His demotion clears a spot on the active roster for Luis Perdomo, who was called up from Triple-A ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday against the Athletics. Brewer's stay in San Diego lasted just one day, with the righty reliever tossing a scoreless eighth inning in Tuesday's 6-2 loss.

Brewer will provide some depth out of the Padres' bullpen after the team placed Kirby Yates on paternity leave in a corresponding move. Across 27 appearances with El Paso this year, Brewer has posted a 4.50 ERA and 1.19 WHIP.
Brewer was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Friday.
Brewer will head right back to El Paso after being recalled prior to Thursday's game. He did make an appearance during that game, allowing four runs off four hits and two walks while recording just two outs against the Giants. Expect to see him back with San Diego later on this spring as the club continues to rotate through bullpen arms.
Brewer was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.
The right-hander has two scoreless innings under his belt at Triple-A this season to go with a 4:1 K:BB. He'll replace Buddy Baumann, who was optioned to El Paso in a corresponding move. Brewer will likely act as a middle reliever during his time in the big leagues.
