David Price could pitch in a save situation for the Red Sox on Wednesday night, according to Red Sox manager John Farrell.

Craig Kimbrel and Addison Reed are both unavailable due to their recent usage. Price made his first relief appearance for the Red Sox on Sunday, throwing two scoreless innings with a pair of strikeouts.

Eduardo Nunez's (knee) rehab may take longer than anticipated, according to Red Sox manager John Farrell.

Nunez was unable to run the bases on Wednesday as he had been expected to. He'll now attempt that on Friday before the game in Cincinnati. He's been out of the lineup since September 10 with the PCL injury and it's looking at this point like he might only get in a few token appearances before the playoffs.
Sep 20 - 5:42 PM

Rafael Devers will get the day off Wednesday.

Devers has committed five errors at third base in Boston's last five games and he also hasn't homered since August 19. Typical growing pains for a 20-year-old playing out his first-ever sixth-month season.
Sep 20 - 2:56 PM

Dustin Pedroia (nose) will start at second base Wednesday versus the Orioles.

Pedroia took a ricocheted foul ball to the face in Monday's series opener but only suffered a nasal contusion and was able to pinch-hit on Tuesday night. The veteran second baseman is slashing .302/.376/.404 in 99 games this season for Boston.
Sep 20 - 2:48 PM

Hanley Ramirez (biceps) will start at DH on Wednesday night against the Orioles.

It'll be the first start for Hanley since last Wednesday, though he did appear as a pinch-hitter on Monday night. He's been working through a biceps issue.
Sep 20 - 2:45 PM

Dustin Pedroia (nose) grounded out as a pinch-hitter Tuesday versus the Orioles.

It's amazing that Pedroia was even available given that he got struck in the face by a ricocheted foul ball on Monday night. The veteran second baseman could return to the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday. He escaped that frightening incident with a mere nasal contusion.
Sep 20 - 8:50 AM

Drew Pomeranz held the Orioles off the scoreboard for 6 1/3 innings Tuesday but took a no-decision in the Red Sox' 1-0 extra-innings win.

Pomeranz’s velocity was down in this one, but he still limited the Orioles to just five hits and two walks while striking out five over his 6 1/3 scoreless frames. It’s the first time since August 12 that he pitched into the seventh inning. Pomeranz has his ERA down to 3.15, which is the lowest it’s been since after his first start of the season. He gets the Blue Jays next.
Sep 19 - 10:55 PM

Matt Barnes notched his first save of the season with a scoreless 11th inning on Tuesday in Baltimore.

Craig Kimbrel had already pitched, so it was Barnes who was called upon after the Red Sox broke a scoreless tie in the top of the 11th. He had to pitch around a two-out error by Rafael Devers but did so in retiring Trey Mancini to end it. It was Barnes' second career save.
Sep 19 - 10:53 PM

Rafael Devers singled twice in four at-bats Tuesday versus the Orioles.

Devers is starting to pick things back up a bit at the plate lately, although he hasn't homered in 28 games. The real issue is that he made an error for the fifth straight game Tuesday. With Devers' fade down the stretch with the glove and with his power, the Red Sox might go with Eduardo Nunez at third base in the playoffs, provided Nunez is healthy.
Sep 19 - 10:49 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Hanley Ramirez (biceps) should return to the lineup Wednesday.

Ramirez is out again Tuesday versus the Orioles due to lingering biceps soreness, though he did serve as a pinch-hitter on Monday night, striking out in his first plate appearance since last Wednesday. The 33-year-old slugger owns a disappointing .238/.319/.422 batting line in 124 games this season for Boston.
Sep 19 - 5:21 PM

Dustin Pedroia (nose) is hoping to return to the Red Sox starting lineup on Wednesday.

Pedroia is being held out of action Tuesday against the Orioles after taking a ricocheted foul ball to the face on Monday night, but he only suffered a nasal contusion and is already feeling better. Brock Holt will get the start at second base for Boston on Tuesday versus Baltimore.
Sep 19 - 5:18 PM

Dustin Pedroia (nose) is out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the Orioles.

Pedroia was diagnosed with a nasal contusion after being struck in the face by foul ball on Monday. The Red Sox were considering sending him for a CAT scan on Tuesday, so we should know more on his status soon. Brock Holt will fill in at second base.
Sep 19 - 3:49 PM

Mookie Betts (thumb) is in the Red Sox lineup Tuesday night against the Orioles.

Betts was clearly bothered by his bruised right thumb near the end of the Monday's extra-innings win over Baltimore, but he finished that game with four RBI and he'll start in right field and bat third on Tuesday.
Sep 19 - 3:47 PM

Hanley Ramirez (biceps) struck out in a pinch-hit appearance Monday versus the Orioles.

It was Ramirez's first game action since last Wednesday, as he's been dealing with biceps soreness. Of course, he's also had nagging soreness in both of his shoulders for most of the year. The hope is that he'll return to the lineup on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Sep 19 - 8:41 AM

Dustin Pedroia (nose) could undergo a CAT scan Tuesday.

Pedroia on Monday was hit by a foul ball that bounced off the ground and struck him in the nose. The preliminary diagnosis was a nasal contusion, but if he's still really sore Tuesday he could be sent for more tests.
