Jean Machi allowed two runs in the ninth inning but still got the save as the Red Sox topped the White Sox 5-4 on Monday.

Machi allowed a double and two singles, which led to two runs. He was able to get Carlos Sanchez to foul out to end the game before the White Sox could push across the tying run. The Red Sox haven't had many save situations, but Machi and Junichi Tazawa have been getting them when they have become available since Koji Uehara landed on the disabled list. The right-hander hasn't been good this year, but should be picked up in fantasy leagues for the odd save.

Red Sox manager John Farrell has indicated that Jean Machi will serve as the team's closer with Koji Uehara (wrist) ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Junichi Tazawa is another possibility, but it sounds like Farrell would rather keep him more flexible in a setup role. The heavily-used Tazawa has been showing signs of fatigue since the All-Star break anyway. Machi, who was claimed off waivers from the Giants in late July, holds a 3.33 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 164 2/3 career major league innings. He's the guy to own right now in the Boston bullpen.

Red Sox claimed RHP Jean Machi off waivers from the Giants.

Machi was recently designated for assignment by the Giants after struggling to the tune of a 5.14 ERA over 33 appearances this season. The 33-year-old was a useful bullpen piece from 2013-2014, so the Red Sox will try to get him turned around.

Giants designated RHP Jean Machi for assignment.

Machi has pitched well for the Giants in the past but has struggled this season with a 5.14 ERA and 1.49 WHIP over 33 appearances. Given his 2.49 ERA from 2013-14, it's possible the 33-year-old will draw some interest on waivers.
Jul 20 - 8:31 PM

Giants activated RHP Jean Machi from the 15-day disabled list.

Machi has been out for about three weeks with a left groin strain. He returns to a shaky 5.47 ERA and 17/12 K/BB ratio over 26 1/3 innings.
Jun 23 - 2:15 PM

Jean Machi (groin) is ready to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento.

Machi has missed the last two weeks with a strained left groin. He should only need an appearance or two before being activated.
Jun 15 - 8:03 PM

Giants placed RHP Jean Machi on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 2, with a left groin strain.

It's not clear at this point how long he might be sidelined. Casey McGehee has replaced Machi on the roster.
Jun 5 - 4:20 PM

Jean Machi said he lost his pinkie fingernail playing catch Monday but remains able to pitch.

Unfortunately for Machi, the injury happened after he surrendered a game-tying homer to Oscar Taveras in Sunday's game so he can't use that as an excuse. As far as pitchers' fingernails go, the pinkie is among the least important, so that's the good news for Machi. He has the finger bandaged, and he should be available in Tuesday's Game 3.

Jean Machi got five outs for his second save of the year in the Giants' 6-2 win Friday.

Unfortunately, Machi's win pace has slowed down, a trend that figures to continue as he enters more games with leads due to Santiago Casilla's absence. He's been remarkably valueable with his five wins, two saves and 0.37 ERA so far, but as much as we like him, he's not going to keep up this pace.

Jean Machi earned his fifth win in relief after pitching two scoreless innings as the Giants beat the Pirates 11-10 in 13 innings on Monday.

It was the first time since 2004 that the Pirates had scored 10 runs and lost. Machi not only pitched well, as usual, but he helped his own cause with a terrific bunt in the top of the 13th. He busted it down the line, too, which may have caused Jared Hughes' errant throw that allowed Hunter Pence to score from second. In truth, the bunt was good enough that Machi could have been awarded a hit. However, it was ruled an error instead. Worse, when Machi took second moments later, it was ruled defensive indifference instead of steal. Oh well, at least Machi has his five wins. No one in either league has more.

Giants recalled RHP Jean Machi from Triple-A Fresno.

Machi holds a 3.34 ERA and 29/8 K/BB ratio over 35 innings this season for the big club. He'll be used in middle relief.
Tue, Aug 20, 2013 06:52:00 PM

Giants optioned RHP Jean Machi to Triple-A Fresno.

The move clears a spot for Ryan Vogelsong's return from the disabled list. Machi has a 3.34 ERA and 29/8 K/BB ratio over 35 innings this season and should return later this season.

Giants recalled RHP Jean Machi from Triple-A Fresno.

Machi has pitched well in his time with the Giants this season, holding a 3.58 ERA and 24/5 K/BB ratio in 27 2/3 innings. He'll be used in middle relief.

Giants optioned RHP Jean Machi to Triple-A Fresno.

Machi was sent down to make room for Santiago Casilla. The right-hander had a 3.58 ERA and 24/5 K/BB ratio in 27 2/3 innings with the club. He'll likely be back up with the club by September at the latest.
