Top Red Sox News

  • Red Sox's Jonathan Arauz: Starts at second base

    Arauz drew the start at second base and went 2-for-3 with a run scored in Tuesday's 8-3 win over Baltimore.

    Arauz made his second straight start and has appeared in three consecutive games. Christian Arroyo is dealing with a back injury, so this an opportunity for the 22-year-old to see regular at-bats. After a promising start this season, Arauz has been overmatched the last month, going 3-for-20 with 10 strikeouts since the start of September.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Doubles, drives in two

    Dalbec went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Orioles.

    Dalbec has hit safely in three straight contests since an off-day Friday, which came after a 2-for-15 stretch that included 10 strikeouts. He's 5-for-10 with a home run and three RBI in his mini-streak. Dalbec has 10 extra-base hits among his 18 hits this season, giving the rookie a .375 ISO.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Earns win in Red Sox debut

    Pivetta (1-0) earned the win Tuesday against the Orioles. He allowed one run on four hits and three walks while fanning eight across five innings.

    Pivetta was recalled ahead of Tuesday's start and impressed in his debut with the Red Sox, fanning eight and looking dominant on the mound most of the time. The Red Sox are already out of contention but they might want to check what they have in Pivetta, so he could be in line to pitch in the team's season finale Sunday against Atlanta.

  • Red Sox's Christian Vazquez: Homers against Baltimore

    Vazquez went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run and an additional run scored in Tuesday's win over Baltimore.

    Vazquez made the most of his lone hit, blasting a fastball from reliever Evan Phillips straight into left center field. It was Vazquez's sixth homer of the season and eventually iced the game for Boston. This homer pushed Vazquez's hitting streak to three games, and the backstop has been one of Boston's most reliable hitters of late -- he has hit safely in seven of the team's last 10 games with a .292 average (12-for-41) in that span.

  • Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Racks up three hits

    Martinez went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over Baltimore.

    Martinez has only hit .216 with a .684 OPS -- those are well below-average numbers for someone who has been one of the best hitters in the American League over the last few years. This was Martinez's fourth three-hit performance of the season and might be in line to end the season on a strong note since he's hit safely in four of the team's last six games.

  • Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Picks up one-out save

    Barnes picked up the save Tuesday against the Orioles after recording the final out of the game.

    Dylan Covey handled the ninth and held a five-run lead, but manager Ron Roenicke decided to rely on Barnes after Covey loaded the bases with two outs. Barnes needed just three pitches to close the game out -- he induced a pop out in foul territory from Pedro Severino -- and that qualified as his ninth save of the campaign. Barnes should hold down the closer role in the final games of the 2020 regular season.

  • Red Sox's Robert Stock: Sent down Tuesday

    Stock was optioned to the Red Sox's alternate training site Tuesday.

    Stock has had inconsistent results while serving out of the major-league bullpen this season, and he'll head back to the alternate training site with just under a week remaining in the regular season. He's posted a 4.73 ERA and 14:10 K:BB over 13.1 innings so far in 2020. Nick Pivetta was recalled ahead of his scheduled start Tuesday in a corresponding move.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Officially recalled

    Pivetta was recalled by the Red Sox ahead of his start Tuesday against the Orioles.

    Pivetta will make his debut with the Red Sox on Tuesday while also making his first start of 2020. The right-hander struggled during game action out of the bullpen with the Phillies earlier this year, but he's impressed at the Red Sox's alternate training site. If he impresses Tuesday, he could pitch in the team's season finale against Atlanta on Sunday as well.

  • Red Sox's Christian Arroyo: Still out Tuesday

    Arroyo (back) isn't starting Tuesday against the Orioles, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Arroyo will miss a second consecutive game with back spasms even though the Red Sox got a day off Monday. Jonathan Arauz is starting at second base Tuesday.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Returns to lineup

    Verdugo (hamstring) is starting Tuesday against the Orioles, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Verdugo missed the final two games of Boston's weekend series after leaving Friday's game with left hamstring tightness. However, the Red Sox had a day off Monday, and Verdugo will return to the starting nine Tuesday as he leads off and plays right field.

  • Red Sox's Jackie Bradley: Logs four hits Sunday

    Bradley went 4-for-5 with a double, three runs and one RBI in Sunday's win against the Yankees.

    Bradley went hitless in three at-bats Saturday, but he turned things around by recording four hits in the series finale against the Yankees. He benefited from a strong offensive showing by the team as he scored three runs during the win. He's now hitting .274 with 15 extra-base hits and 23 runs this season.

  • Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Homers twice Sunday

    Chavis went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs, five RBI, three runs and one walk in Sunday's win against the Red Sox.

    Chavis set the tone for the Red Sox on Sunday with home runs off promising right-hander Deivi Garcia in the second and third innings. Although Boston put up 10 runs in the win, Chavis was the only player on the team with multiple RBI. The 25-year-old went 0-for-13 with five strikeouts over his past three games, but he came through with his best performance of the 2020 season Sunday.

  • Red Sox's Tanner Houck: Remains dominant in second start

    Houck (2-0) allowed one unearned run on one hit and three walks while striking out four over six innings Sunday as he earned the win against the Yankees.

    Houck carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning Sunday before he allowed the first extra-base hit of his career as Tyler Wade smacked a double with no outs in the top of the frame. Wade was brought in as an unearned run later in the inning, but Houck limited the damage otherwise. The 24-year-old has been electric in his first two major-league appearances as he's allowed zero earned runs over 11 innings. He'll likely take the mound once more to finish the regular season, and that start should come on the road Saturday against Atlanta.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Starting Tuesday

    Pivetta will start Tuesday's game against the Orioles, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Pivetta will debut with the Red Sox at home Tuesday after getting off to a rough start with the Phillies this season. The right-hander made three relief appearances earlier in the year, recording a 15.88 ERA and 1.94 WHIP over 5.2 innings. Pivetta's strikeout rate has dropped over the past two seasons, and he hasn't thrown more than 44 pitches in any of his outings in 2020.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Returns to lineup

    Dalbec returned to the starting lineup Saturday and went 1-for-3 in an 8-0 loss to the Yankees.

    Dalbec, who is in Sunday's starting lineup, was given a break Friday after striking out four times Thursday. Fantasy owners will need to tolerate a high strikeout percentage in Dalbec's offensive profile in order to reap the benefits of his power.
