The Red Sox outrighted Brewer to Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Brewer will remain in the organization after he cleared waivers when he was designated for assignment Thursday. Before being removed from the 40-man roster, the 28-year-old right-hander was hit hard in his lone appearance out of the Boston bullpen, giving up four runs on four hits and three walks over one inning May 31 in Houston.
Brewer was designated for assignment Thursday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Brewer gave up four earned runs on four hits and three walks in one inning in his lone appearance in the majors this season. This move clears a roster spot for Brandon Workman, who was promoted in a corresponding move.
Brewer was recalled by the Red Sox on Friday.
Brewer hasn't yet made a major-league appearance this year, but he posted a 9.00 ERA and 1.75 WHIP in four innings across four relief appearances for Triple-A Worcester. He should serve mainly as a low-leverage reliever with the big-league club.
Brewer was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Sunday.
His latest stint in the majors lasted all of one day, coinciding with Garrett Whitlock's brief stint on the COVID list. Brewer still has not made an appearance for the big club this season after battling shoulder inflammation earlier in the year.
Brewer was recalled by the Red Sox on Saturday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Garrett Whitlock (COVID-19) was feeling symptoms after receiving the vaccine and is on the injured list. Brewer will take his place in the team's bullpen and will be set for his first innings in the big leagues this season, if he pitches.
Brewer was diagnosed with right shoulder inflammation following a recent bullpen session, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Brewer was believed to be a candidate for a promotion to the big club Wednesday to serve as the 27th man for the Red Sox's doubleheader with the Twins, but his injury nixed those plans. Instead, Boston called up reliever Eduard Bazardo.
The Red Sox optioned Brewer to their alternate site Tuesday.
Brewer wasn't able to crack the Red Sox's Opening Day bullpen after being roughed up for seven earned runs on 10 hits and a walk over 6.1 innings during the Grapefruit League slate. He'll likely report to Triple-A Worcester to begin the season.
Brewer (finger) pitched a live batting practice session Sunday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Brewer ended the past season on the injured list after sustaining a right third finger strain Sept. 1, but he's seemingly back to full health as Boston prepares to begin its Grapefruit League schedule Sunday. Before succumbing to the injury, the right-hander filled a varied role for the Boston pitching staff, working as starter, bulk reliever and a more traditional reliever across his 11 appearances. He wasn't particularly effective in any capacity, however, posting a 5.61 ERA and 1.75 WHIP in 25.2 innings.
Brewer (finger) was removed from Boston's 60-player pool Thursday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
The 27-year-old was already ruled out for the season after being moved to the 45-day injured list, and his removal from the pool allows the team to add another player. Brewer had a 5.61 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 25:14 K:BB over 25.2 innings before going down with the injury.
Brewer (finger) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Friday.
Brewer suffered a right third finger strain at the end of August, and his season will come to an end after landing on the 45-day injured list. The right-hander faltered a bit in his two most recent appearances, and he'll finish the 2020 campaign with a 5.61 ERA and 1.75 WHIP over 25.2 innings. It wouldn't be surprising to see him ready for spring training in 2021. Domingo Tapia's contract was selected in a corresponding move.
Brewer was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right third finger strain, retroactive to Sept. 1.
Brewer labored through his most recent start as he took the loss while allowing five runs over four innings. His injury could have played a role in his struggles, and he'll now miss at least one turn through the rotation while he recovers. It's unclear how much time Brewer is set to miss. Right-hander Marcus Walden was recalled from alternate camp in a corresponding move.
Brewer (0-3) allowed five runs on eight hits and two walks over four innings Monday, striking out four and taking the loss against Atlanta.
Brewer had allowed just one run through three innings before allowing a solo blast to Adam Duvall in the fourth. Things got out of hand in the fifth when the 27-year-old allowed the first three batters to reach base. He was yanked from the game but was charged with those three runs on Austin Riley's bases-clearing triple. Brewer will carry a 5.61 ERA into a home start against Toronto this weekend.
Brewer (0-2) picked up the loss as the fill-in starter against the Blue Jays on Wednesday. He allowed four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four over 3.2 innings.
Brewer is like an opener-plus for Boston, having thrown 7.2 innings in his two appearances at the start of games. He did not enjoy as much success the second time out, surrendering three home runs to the Blue Jays after pitching four scoreless against the Orioles last Friday. He lines up next to pitch Monday at home against the Braves.
Brewer will serve as the opener Wednesday against the Blue Jays, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Brewer was initially scheduled to open for Darwinzon Hernandez on Thursday, but the duo will be pushed up after Nathan Eovaldi (calf) had his start pushed back to Saturday. Brewer was effective in his last appearance as an opener, tossing four scoreless innings while allowing three hits and two walks. He struck out two during that outing.
Brewer started Friday's game and lasted four innings while allowing no runs on three hits, two walks and two strikeouts. He did not factor into the decision.
Brewer had just appeared out of the bullpen Wednesday so it came as a bit of a surprise that the Red Sox chose to go with him to start Friday's contest. It was just the second start of his major-league career, but Brewer was able to work through four innings on 71 pitches before being piggybacked by Darwinzon Hernandez. Given his success Friday, Brewer could receive another opportunity as an opener unless the Red Sox need to use him out of the bullpen in the coming days.
Manager Ron Roenicke announced Thursday that Brewer will open Friday's game against the Orioles, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Brewer has worked as both an opener and reliever for Boston this season. The right-hander will get the ball to start Friday's matchup against Baltimore, with Darwinzon Hernandez expected to follow him.
Brewer came on in relief during Tuesday's 13-6 loss to the Phillies, working 1.1 innings while giving up a run on two hits and striking out three.
Brewer's previous two outings had come as a starter and primary pitcher, but he was used in a more traditional bullpen role Tuesday, which signals that he likely won't stick in the rotation when Boston next requires a fifth starter Friday in Baltimore. Long reliever Ryan Weber could be the top candidate to make a spot start Friday, provided he goes unused out of the bullpen Wednesday and Thursday.
Brewer (0-1) made his first MLB start and was handed the loss Friday against the Yankees. He allowed two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out two over 2.2 innings.
Brewer, who normally pitches in a long-relief role, labored through 73 pitches as the opener in a line of relievers. He's posted a 4.26 ERA with 12 strikeouts and eight walks over 12.2 innings.
Brewer will start Friday's game against the Yankees, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
The 27-year-old has allowed four runs with a 10:5 K:BB through 10 innings out of the bullpen this season (and had a 4.12 ERA over 54.2 innings last year), but he's set to make his first big-league start in New York. Brewer covered three innings on 52 pitches in his last outing, so he should be able to progress to at least four innings Friday, if he pitches well enough.
Brewer threw three innings during Monday's 8-7 loss to the Rays as the bulk reliever, giving up three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out two. He didn't factor into the decision.
After Ryan Brasier tossed a scoreless first inning as the opener for Boston, Brewer entered the game with a 3-0 lead and quickly let Tampa start its comeback. The 27-year-old threw 52 pitches (37 strikes) in his longest appearance yet this season, but Brewer likely wasn't effective enough to officially join the rotation moving forward. Still, the Red Sox don't have many other options right now. If he stays on schedule, look for Brewer to handle a big workload out of the bullpen again in Friday's road game against the Yankees.
