Hart (hip) was outrighted to Triple-A on Friday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
With the Red Sox adding players to the 40-man roster as Rule 5 draft protection, Hart was a roster casualty. He ended the year on the shelf with a hip injury and will report to Triple-A if healthy.
Hart (hip) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
The 27-year-old landed on the injured list with a left hip impingement in early September, and he'll now be sidelined for the rest of the season. Hart finishes his first season in the majors having allowed 19 runs on 24 hits with a 13:10 K:BB over 11 innings.
Hart was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left hip impingement Wednesday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Hart had a rough outing out of the bullpen Tuesday, and he was apparently hampered by an injury that will keep him sidelined for at least 10 days. Given his usage Tuesday, the southpaw will likely pitch out of the bullpen once he returns. Right-hander Andrew Triggs was recalled from the team's alternate training site in a corresponding move.
Hart worked two innings out of the bullpen in Tuesday's 10-3 loss to the Braves, giving up six runs on seven hits while striking out one.
Though the Red Sox never announced Hart was removed from the rotation, his usage in relief Tuesday confirms as much. Ryan Weber received the start Tuesday in Hart's place, while Mike Kickham will join the rotation in Wednesday's series finale to fill in for the injured Nathan Eovaldi (calf).
Hart didn't factor into the decision during Tuesday's 9-7 win over the Blue Jays, allowing six runs on eight hits and three walks over 3.1 innings. He struck out three.
The rookie got tagged for four runs in the first inning before finally exiting the game in the fourth, but the Red Sox got Hart off the hook for a loss with a big rally in the sixth. He has yet to get out of the fourth frame in any of his three big-league starts, and only Boston's lack of rotation depth is keeping him around. Hart will carry a brutal 13.00 ERA, 3.00 WHIP and 12:10 K:BB through nine innings into his next outing, currently scheduled for Monday at home against Atlanta.
Hart gave up two runs on two hits and four walks over 3.2 innings during Wednesday's win over the Phillies. He had five strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.
The 27-year-old has now issued seven walks through his first two starts, and he delivered only 39 of his 73 pitches for strikes Wednesday. Hart will need to illustrate better command to have a chance to work deeper into games, and his next opportunity should be Tuesday against the Blue Jays.
Hart is slated to start Wednesday's game against the Phillies, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Hart was roughed up in his first MLB start Aug. 13 against the Rays, lasting just two innings and giving up seven runs (five earned) on seven hits and three walks. While that sort of poor showing would normally disqualify a spot starter from earning another turn through the rotation, the Red Sox -- whose starters have posted a 6.95 ERA this season heading into Sunday's action -- have few appealing alternatives on hand to replace Hart. Boston will hope Hart can at least eat a few more innings Wednesday, but fantasy players are probably best off looking at other streaming options this week.
Hart (0-1) allowed seven runs (five earned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out four across two innings to take the loss Thursday against the Rays.
Hart made his major-league debut, though the results were not good. After allowing two runs in the first inning, he settled down to record a scoreless second inning. However, things deteriorated quickly in the third frame as he allowed the first six batters he faced to reach base, including a walk, two home runs, a double and two singles. The Red Sox continue to seek effective starting pitching, and it remains to be seen if Hart will get another turn through the rotation.
The Red Sox recalled Hart from their alternate training site ahead of his scheduled start Thursday against the Rays.
The 27-year-old lefty will be making his big-league debut Thursday, becoming the latest in a growing list of pitchers to get an audition in Boston's rotation this season. Hart started in 15 of his 18 appearances at Triple-A Pawtucket in 2019, posting a 3.86 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 80:36 K:BB across 100.1 innings.
Hart will be recalled from the alternate training site to start Thursday's game against the Rays, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
The 27-year-old was unable to secure a spot on the Opening Day roster, but he's now set to make his major-league debut this week. Hart spent 2019 at Triple-A Pawtucket and had a 3.86 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 80:36 K:BB over 100.1 innings (15 starts), and a decent outing Thursday should bring additional opportunities with the Red Sox searching for answers in the starting rotation.
Hart was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday.
Hart had an outside chance at a spot in the starting rotation, but he'll end up beginning his season at Triple-A. The 27-year-old started 15 games for Pawtucket during 2019 and had a 3.86 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 80:36 K:BB across 100.1 innings.
Hart walked one over two scoreless innings in Friday's spring game against the Twins.
Red Sox interim manager Ron Roenicke identified Hart as a candidate for a rotation spot prior to the left-hander's start Friday, according to Christopher Smith of MassLive.com. The Red Sox have two starting slots up for grabs heading into the regular season. One is a full-time gig made available when David Price was traded to the Dodgers, while the other is temporary as a replacement for Chris Sale (illness) who will begin the season on the injured list. The 27-year-old Hart is a command pitcher whose fastball lives in the upper-80s to low-90s.
Hart was added to Boston's 40-man roster Wednesday.
The lefty, who turns 27 on Saturday, will not be available in the upcoming Rule 5 draft. Hart reached Triple-A Pawtucket for the first time in 2019, recording a 3.86 ERA in 100.1 innings.
