  • Red Sox's Rafael Devers: Should start Wednesday

    Manager Alex Cora said Devers (knee), who is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Guardians, is scheduled to start as the designated hitter Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republicanreports.

    Devers was originally expected to rejoin the lineup for Tuesday's series opener, but the club decided he could use one more day, especially with the weather forecast for Tuesday being questionable. The veteran third baseman hasn't seen the field since April 17 due to a bone bruise on his left knee.

  • Red Sox's Triston Casas: Diagnosed with fractured rib

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Tuesday that Casas has been diagnosed with a fracture in his left ribcage and will be "out a while," Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Casas suffered the injury on a swing during Saturday's game in Pittsburgh and was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday. It's a vague timetable provided by Cora, but a clearer picture should be available in the coming days and weeks. Bobby Dalbec is the current favorite to handle the bulk of the first base reps for Boston, but the club could seek help from outside the organization.

  • Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Not starting Tuesday

    Yoshida is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game at Cleveland, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Yoshida sat Sunday against a left-handed starter and is on the bench again Tuesday with righty Ben Lively on the mound for the Guardians. Tyler O'Neill (concussion) is back from the injured list and starting at designed hitter.

  • Red Sox's Rafael Devers: Absence continues Tuesday

    Devers (knee) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game at Cleveland, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The expectation was that Devers would return to action Tuesday versus the Guardians coming off Monday's team off day, but he'll instead be out of the lineup for the fifth straight game due to the bone bruise on his left knee. It's unclear if the 27-year-old suffered some sort of setback, but he should continue to be considered day-to-day for now. Pablo Reyes is starting at the hot corner and batting ninth.

  • Red Sox's Tyler Heineman: Out with strained hamstring

    The Red Sox placed Heineman on the 10-day injured list Monday, retroactive to April 22, with a right hamstring strain.

    Heineman evidently must have suffered the injury during Sunday's game against the Pirates. He'll be eligible to return in early May but isn't a given to be back on the big-league roster once he's healthy, as the Red Sox might send him to Triple-A Worcester instead.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Reinstated, in lineup Tuesday

    The Red Sox reinstated O'Neill (concussion) from the 7-day injured list, and he's batting third as the designated hitter Tuesday against the Guardians, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The veteran outfielder will end up missing only the 7-day minumum after he suffered a concussion in a collision with Rafael Devers (knee) last week. O'Neill has been one of the best hitters in baseball early in 2024 with seven homers and a 1.209 OPS in 61 plate appearances.

  • Red Sox's Wikelman Gonzalez: Rough start to season

    Gonzalez has an 11.12 ERA and 2.88 WHIP over three appearances (two starts) at Double-A Portland.

    Control has long been a challenge for Gonzalez, and the issue is even more prevalent early in the 2024 minor-league season. He walked eight batters over his first two starts -- he lasted just two-thirds of an inning in his second start -- and has issued nine free passes overall in 5.2 innings. The right-hander had an encouraging third outing Sunday, when he walked only one over three scoreless innings as a piggyback starter.

  • Red Sox's Miguel Bleis: Shows improving plate discipline

    Bleis is batting .200/.313/.309 through 14 games for Low-A Salem.

    The middling numbers Bleis posted in 2023 continued to start the current season, but there's encouraging signs beneath the slash line. The outfield prospect, a notorious free-swinger, has posted a 12.5 percent walk rate (up from 7.4 percent in 2023) while cutting down on strikeouts (17.2 percent, down from 26.8 percent). Better swing decisions could eventually lead to more promising outcomes.

  • Red Sox's Triston Casas: MRI confirms significant injury

    Casas (rib) underwent an MRI on Monday that confirmed the expectation that he'll be out for a significant length of time, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

    The Red Sox haven't placed a timetable on Casas' return, but it seems likely he'll blow past the 10-day minimum on the injured list. For now, the team plans to get by with a combination of Bobby Dalbec, Pablo Reyes and possibly Rob Refsnyder, who has been working at the position since the start of spring training. Another option is for Boston to wait and see what happens after May 1, when several players could exercise opt-out clauses.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Contributes as fill-in

    Refsnyder went 1-for-3 with a double, a stolen base, a run scored and an RBI in Sunday's 6-1 win over Pittsburgh.

    Refsnyder, who has appeared in all four games since being activated off the injured list, has hit safely in three straight as a starter, going 4-for-12 with three doubles, a home run, three RBI and a stolen base. With Tyler O'Neill (concussion) due to return Tuesday, Refsnyder's starts in the outfield will dry up, but he could be used to help fill the void at first base following Triston Casas (ribs) landing on the 10-day injured list Sunday. The Red Sox fear the injury could result in a significant absence, and Refsnyder could be an option there along with Pablo Reyes (.174 average) and Bobby Dalbec (.033). At the very least, Refsnyder will likely be in the lineup anytime Boston faces a left-handed starter.

  • Red Sox's Pablo Reyes: Starts at first base

    Reyes started at first base and went 1-for-4 in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Pirates.

    Reyes slotted in for the injured Triston Casas (rib), who was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday. The Red Sox are concerned that the injury could be a significant one, and Boston manager Alex Cora will use Monday's off day to decide how the team plans to proceed without Casas, according to Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe. Reyes, Rob Refsnyder and Bobby Dalbec, who started at third base Sunday for Rafael Devers (knee), are the primary candidates to play first base.

  • Red Sox's Wilyer Abreu: Another three-hit day

    Abreu went 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a run scored during Sunday's 6-1 victory over the Pirates

    Abreu's three-hit day represented his second such effort in three days, as he posted multiple RBI for the first time this season. Abreu entered the series with PIttsburgh hitting just .184 but reached base 10 times, going 7-for-12 with three walks, a homer, two doubles, four RBI and three runs scored during the weekend set to raise his average to .280 with a .390 on-base percentage.

  • Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Covers 3.1 innings in start

    Winckowski didn't factor into the decision in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Pirates, allowing one run on three hits over 3.1 innings while striking out one.

    Winckowski made his first start of the season in place of Garrett Whitlock (oblique), tossing a season-high 3.1 innings while limiting the Pirates to one run. After tossing no more than 28 pitches over his three previous outings, Winckowski was pulled after 46 pitches Sunday. The 25-year-old righty will get a chance to stretch out his arm more, with Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe noting that Winckowski will stick around in the rotation. His next start is expected to come next weekend, when the Red Sox welcome the Cubs to Fenway Park.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Likely to return Tuesday

    O'Neill (concussion) is expected to be activated from the 7-day injured list ahead of Tuesday's game at Cleveland, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    It appears the 27-year-old outfielder will spend the 7-day minimum on the concussion IL following his collision with Rafael Devers. O'Neill has been one of the best hitters in baseball early this season with seven homers and a 1.209 OPS in 15 games.

  • Red Sox's Rafael Devers: Should be back Tuesday

    Devers (knee) is expected to rejoin the lineup Tuesday against the Guardians, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    The 27-year-old sat out Sunday for the fourth consecutive game due to a bone bruise in his left knee, but he should return to action following Monday's team off day. It's been a slow start to the season for Devers, who has a .188/.328/.375 slash line with two homers through 58 plate appearances.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Plays catch

    Whitlock (oblique) played catch Saturday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

    Whitlock was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with what was described at the time as a low-grade strain. It's unclear if he'll require more than the 15 days or when Whitlock will advance to pitching off a mound.

  • Red Sox's Tyler Heineman: Officially joins big club

    The Red Sox recalled Heineman from Triple-A Worcester on Sunday, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    The 32-year-old will join the active roster as Tristan Casas (ribs) makes his way to the 10-day injured list. Heineman will provide depth behind the plate as Boston's No. 3 catcher and is unlikely to see significant playing time.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Throws bullpen Saturday

    Pivetta (elbow) threw a bullpen session Saturday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

    The next milestones for Pivetta are throwing an up-and-down session Thursday in Cleveland that will be followed by a live batting practice. After that, the team will decide if the right-hander needs a rehab assignment, although manager Alex Cora said he prefers the pitcher make at least one rehab start.
