Red Sox's Colten Brewer: Making first career start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Sox's Colten Brewer: Ineffective in bulk relief role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Sox's Colten Brewer: Won't start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Ron Roenicke said that Brewer won't start Monday against the Rays, but the right-hander is still expected to see the heaviest workload out of the bullpen behind opener Ryan Brasier, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Brasier hasn't covered more than an inning in any of his five appearances this season, so he's highly unlikely to cover more than two frames before bowing out of the contest. Once Brasier exits, Brewer profiles as the top candidate in the Boston bullpen to eat innings, though he shouldn't be viewed as the "primary pitcher" teams typically like to deploy behind openers. Brewer hasn't tossed more than 44 pitches in any outing this season, so he likely won't be asked to push much further past that count Monday.

Red Sox's Colten Brewer: Preparing for 'bulk' role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Ron Roenicke said Brewer will likely cover a bulk of the innings for Monday's game against the Rays, either as a long reliever or a traditional starter, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Desperate for answers in the rotation, the Red Sox will give Brewer a trial in the bulk role for what should resemble a bullpen game in the series opener with Tampa Bay. Considering Brewer hasn't tossed more than 44 pitches in any of his five appearances on the season, Roenicke likely won't ask him to push beyond the 60-to-75-pitch range Monday.

Red Sox's Colten Brewer: Fans two in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brewer walked one and struck out two over a scoreless inning in Wednesday's 5-0 win over the Rays.

Brewer was groomed as a low-leverage reliever that could serve in multiple-inning situations during spring training and summer camp. He's made four appearances thus far: twice for bulk innings early in games and twice in mop-up roles. With the back end of Boston's rotation in flux, Brewer could pop up as an opener when not serving in low-impact situations. In six innings, he's allowed two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out eight.

Red Sox's Colten Brewer: Shuttled to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Sox's Colten Brewer: Looking like opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Sox's Colten Brewer: Called up from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Sox's Colten Brewer: Sent down to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Sox's Colten Brewer: Shuts down Twins for hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Sox's Colten Brewer: Returns to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

May 26, 2019 01:40 PM
Red Sox's Colten Brewer: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Sox's Colten Brewer: Takes ninth-inning loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Sox's Colten Brewer: Makes Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Sox's Colten Brewer: Dealt to Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Colten Brewer: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

August 30, 2018 05:20 PM
Padres' Colten Brewer: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

August 28, 2018 05:12 PM
Padres' Colten Brewer: Activated from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

August 20, 2018 12:48 PM
Padres' Colten Brewer: Starts up rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

July 23, 2018 05:44 PM
Padres' Colten Brewer: Out with strained oblique
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
