Player News - Red Sox

Date: Team: Pos:

Red Sox manager John Farrell announced Thursday that Yoan Moncada has left the club to head to Florida in preparation for the Arizona Fall League.

Moncada struggled mightily in his limited time with the big league club. He still has a very bright future, but hes' best suited working on his game at the moment rather than sitting idle on the Red Sox bench.

Drew Pomeranz (forearm) said after a bullpen session Thursday that "I definitely feel like I can maybe help" as a reliever in the playoffs.

Pomeranz has dealt with some forearm soreness and the Red Sox are also concerned about his workload. He's not going to start anymore but could be a weapon in relief in October.

Mookie Betts is out of the Red Sox starting lineup on Thursday night against the Yankees.

Dustin Pedroia, Hanley Ramirez, and Sandy Leon are also receiving a day of rest after the Red Sox clinched the American League East title on Wednesday night with the Blue Jays' loss to the Orioles. David Ortiz is starting at DH in what will be his final game at Yankee Stadium.

Clay Buchholz shut out the Yankees for six innings, allowing just one hit, in his start Wednesday.

Buchholz in the rotation and Drew Pomeranz in the pen seems like the right strategy for the Red Sox in the ALDS. Since returning to the rotation on Sept. 6, Buchholz has a 3.14 ERA in five outings, turning in quality starts four times. He'll carry an 8-10 record and a 4.78 ERA with him into the postseason, but he's throwing better than that right now.

Craig Kimbrel walked three and gave up four runs without retiring a batter Wednesday against the Yankees.

No matter how many strikeouts he's recorded, Kimbrel hasn't much moved the dial for the Red Sox in the regular season this year, not with his 3.35 ERA and five losses. Still, the postseason was a huge factor in the team's decision to pay such a high price to get him, and there's still time for Kimbrel to prove his value then.

Drew Pomeranz (forearm) will throw a bullpen session on Thursday.

Pomeranz has already been scratched from his scheduled Thursday start against the Yankees due to left forearm soreness and concerns about his overall workload. He has thrown a career-high 169 1/3 innings this season. "We talked about maybe trying to get ready for a spot in the bullpen [for the postseason]," Pomeranz said Wednesday. "I don't know how everything was playing out, but that's what we decided on."
Sep 28 - 8:42 PM

David Price served up three home runs and allowed six runs over 6 1/3 frames in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees.

Price has pitched well for the Red Sox this season after a slow start, but his introduction to the rivalry with the Yankees hasn't gone well. Over five starts versus the Bombers this season, he's put up a 7.89 ERA and 1.79 WHIP. The southpaw tied his season high by allowing 12 hits in this one. Price's final regular season start will come Sunday against the Blue Jays.
Sep 27 - 11:10 PM

Steven Wright (shoulder) threw a light bullpen session on Tuesday in Fort Myers, Florida.

He's scheduled for a more intense mound workout on Friday at Fenway Park. Wright can be ruled out for the remainder of the 2016 regular season, but he could be an option for the Red Sox in some capacity during the playoffs.
Sep 27 - 5:09 PM

Henry Owens is scheduled to start for the Red Sox in Thursday's series finale against the Yankees.

That was supposed to be Drew Pomeranz's turn, but the lefty has been bothered by forearm soreness and there is concern about his overall workload. Owens owns an ugly 7.79 ERA in four starts this season at the major league level. He's a poor fantasy streaming option at Yankee Stadium.
Sep 27 - 5:03 PM

Drew Pomeranz has been scratched from his scheduled start Thursday against the Yankees due to soreness in his left forearm and concerns about his overall workload.

Henry Owens will take the mound instead at Yankee Stadium. According to the Red Sox, if Pomeranz pitches again this season it will be out of the bullpen. The southpaw holds a 3.35 ERA in a career-high 169 1/3 frames this year. He is eligible for salary arbitration this winter after earning $1.35 million in 2016.
Sep 27 - 5:01 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez struck out a career-high 13 over 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball, netting a no-decision in Sunday's 3-2 extra-innings win over the Rays.

It was a record-setting day for the Red Sox, as Rodriguez combined with the bullpen to strike out 21 Rays batters over the first nine innings. The left-hander lost out on a win when Tampa knotted things up in the eighth inning, but much more important is that E-Rod is hitting his stride as the playoffs near with a 2.03 ERA over his last eight starts. Boston is playing its best baseball of the year, as well, with 11 straight victories. Rodriguez will close out his regular season at home against the Blue Jays.
Sep 25 - 5:22 PM

Dustin Pedroia hit a solo homer and scored the go-ahead run in the 10th-inning of Sunday's win over the Rays.

Pedroia's dinger in the third inning had the Red Sox on top until the Rays came through with a run in the eighth. He scored the winner on a wacky play in the 10th where he should've been thrown out by 10 feet, but Pedoira danced around catcher Luke Maile before diving in to touch home plate as he dislodged the ball from Maile's glove. Pedroia has gone deep in two straight.
Sep 25 - 5:12 PM

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 with a grand slam to help the Red Sox defeat the Rays 6-4 on Saturday.

The Sox were trailing in the seventh inning when Pedroia stepped to the plate with two outs and the sacks jacked. He unloaded them with his 14th home run of the season, helping them clinch a playoff berth in the process. The homer also gave him his 100th run scored this year, and the 33-year-old is batting .318/.377/.447 with 71 RBI and seven steals through 148 games.
Sep 24 - 10:45 PM

Brock Holt went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Rays.

Holt plated the first run of the game with a double in the second inning. The all-purpose 28-year-old is hitting .264/.326/.397 with seven homers, 34 RBI, 44 runs scored and four steals in 88 games this year.
Sep 24 - 10:34 PM

Rick Porcello allowed three runs over 6 1/3 innings in a win over the Rays on Saturday.

Porcello gave up three runs in the third inning but settled down to hold them scoreless the rest of his time. He gave up eight hits and a walk while striking out nine in the outing. The right-hander improved to a ridiculous 22-4 with a 3.11 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with the win. He'll get one final stab at the 2016 regular season Friday against the Blue Jays.
