  • Red Sox's Brennan Bernardino: Not his night

    Bernardino (3-3) was the losing pitcher Friday, allowing three runs on two hits and a walk in a 4-1 loss to the Dodgers.

    Boston's bullpen wasted a quality start by Nick Pivetta, who authored six shutout innings. Bernardino, who entered the evening with a 1.69 ERA, came on with one out, a runner on and Boston leading, 1-0. He allowed a ground-rule double, an intentional walk, then was touched for a grand slam by Freddie Freeman. It's been a very good season for Bernardino, but the lefty has hit a rough patch, having allowed five runs, six hits and one walk over the last four outings (1.2 innings) while picking up two losses and two blown saves during that stretch.

  • Red Sox's Vaughn Grissom: Rehab starting Saturday

    Grissom (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Worcester on Saturday, MLB.com reports.

    If there a no setbacks, Grissom should be positioned to return at some point during August. He's missed a lot of time due to various leg injuries and may require close to the maximum 20 days allowed on a rehab assignment.

  • Red Sox's Triston Casas: Rehab assignment not imminent

    Red Sox manager said Friday that "it will be a while" when asked if Casas (ribs) was close to a rehab assignment, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

    There were encouraging reports on Casas prior to the All-Star break, but the first baseman still feels some pain in his side. He continues to hit off a tee and take soft toss. When asked about a September return, the manager said the team and players are focused on what they need to do in the present, and "to start thinking 12 days from now or 15 days from now, that's not the way we're doing it." Cora's comments put a damper on the talk of Casas getting into game action anytime soon.

  • Red Sox's Ceddanne Rafaela: Nabs steal Friday

    Rafaela went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Dodgers.

    Rafaela is up to 12 steals on the year, though he has just two over his last 21 contests. In that span, he's batting a modest .234 (18-for-77) while adding only one walk, so it's not like he's had a lot of opportunities to run. The shortstop is at a .247/.273/.419 slash line with 11 home runs, 52 RBI, 45 runs scored, 16 doubles and four triples across 94 games this season.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Racks up three hits in loss

    O'Neill went 3-for-4 in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Dodgers.

    The multi-hit night did not obscure O'Neill's baserunning blunder in the top of the eighth inning. With one out and Boston leading, 1-0, he was doubled off first base on a short fly to left field, apparently misjudging the depth of the batted ball. The play preceded the Dodgers' four-run outburst to take the lead in the bottom half of the frame. O'Neill went just 3-for-27 over his last seven games before the All-Star break, though that came after he began July with three multi-hit efforts. The outfielder is now at a .260/.353/.496 slash line with 16 home runs, 31 RBI, 49 runs scored, three stolen bases and 12 doubles over 69 contests this season. O'Neill continues to hold down a starting role in Boston's outfield, though he has just seven homers over his last 50 games after beginning the year with nine long balls in 19 contests.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Provides lone run in loss

    Duran went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Dodgers.

    Fresh off an MVP performance at the All-Star Game, Duran got his second half off to a hot start, and his fifth-inning homer was his first long ball since July 2. The outfielder is up to a .286/.344/.488 slash line with 11 homers, 42 RBI, 63 runs scored, 22 stolen bases, 11 doubles and a major-league-leading 10 triples through 96 games.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Strong start goes to waste

    Pivetta allowed two hits and a walk while striking out eight over six scoreless innings in a no-decision versus the Dodgers on Friday.

    Pivetta posted a scoreless outing for the fourth time this year, including twice over three starts in July. While he was able to keep the Dodgers at bay, Zack Kelly and Brennan Bernardino combined to unravel in the eighth inning, culminating in a game-deciding grand slam from Freddie Freeman. Pivetta's winless stretch is now at five starts, and he remains at 4-6 on the year despite a solid 3.87 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 96:21 K:BB through 81.1 innings over 15 starts. The right-hander is projected for a difficult road start at Colorado in his next outing.

  • Red Sox's Trevor Story: Could return for playoffs

    Story (shoulder) told reporters Friday that there is a chance he could return for the playoffs should the Red Sox make the postseason, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

    After playing just eight games at the beginning of the year, Story underwent arthroscopic surgery for a dislocated left shoulder and was transferred to the 60-day injured list April 18. The procedure was thought to be season-ending at the time, but Story relayed that his doctor said there's a chance that the veteran shortstop could play again this year, per Alex Speier of The Boston Globe. Regardless of when he returns, Story may not see regular playing time, given that Ceddanne Rafaela has stepped into the Red Sox's starting shortstop job. Story has played just 145 regular-season games since joining Boston in 2022 due to various injuries.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Idle Friday

    Wong isn't in the Red Sox's lineup for Friday's game versus the Dodgers, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    Wong will take a seat for the first game of the second half after also sitting down during the final two games before the All-Star break. Reese McGuire will once again draw the start behind the plate and bat ninth.

  • Red Sox's Bryan Mata: Suffers setback

    Mata (lat) was returned from his rehab assignment with Triple-A Worcester on Friday after experiencing right elbow inflammation during an appearance Sunday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    Sunday's rehab outing was expected to be Mata's last before being reinstated from the IL, but his return date is now uncertain. It would be surprising to see Mata back before the end of July.

  • Red Sox's Triston Casas: May begin rehab assignment soon

    Casas (rib) could be cleared to start hitting in the batting cage within the next week and may be ready to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment before the end of the month, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    After landing on the injured list April 21 with a strain and torn cartilage in his left rib, Casas had previously expressed optimism that he would be ready to return to the Boston lineup at the start of July. That prediction ultimately proved to be too ambitious, as Casas wasn't even cleared to resume swinging a bat until the final week of June. Casas hasn't seemed to experience any setbacks since he started taking swings again, but facing off against high-velocity pitching in the batting cage or in live batting practice will provide a better test of the first baseman's health. Given that Casas will eventually need at least a few rehab games to get his timing back at the plate, he might not be a realistic option to return from the IL until early August, at least.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Takes home All-Star MVP honors

    Duran was named the MVP of Tuesday's All-Star Game after going 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in the American League's 5-3 win over the National League.

    Entering the game in the top of the fifth inning as a replacement for starting center fielder Aaron Judge, Duran broke a 3-3 tie in the bottom of the frame when he took Reds right-hander Hunter Greene deep to right center. The two-run blast held up as the difference in the American League's win, allowing Duran to become the first Red Sox player since J.D. Drew in 2008 to take home MVP honors in the Midsummer Classic. Duran earned his first All-Star nod after slashing .284/.342/.477 with 10 home runs and 22 stolen bases in 439 plate appearances during the first half.

  • Red Sox's Brandon Clarke: Selected by Boston in fifth round

    The Red Sox have selected Clarke with the 148th overall pick in the 2024 First-Year Player Draft.

    The 6-foot-4, 220-pound southpaw began his collegiate career at Alabama in 2022, but after seeing limited opportunities, he moved on to the JUCO ranks with the State College of Florida. Though he benefited from a lower caliber of competition, Clarke finished as one of the leading strikeout artists at the JUCO level in 2024 and impressed scouts with a power arsenal that includes a mid-to-upper 90s fastball and an upper-70s curveball. Concerns remain about Clarke's ability to consistently control his offerings, however, putting him at risk of an eventual move to the bullpen.

  • Red Sox's Zach Ehrhard: Nabbed by Boston

    The Red Sox have selected Ehrhard with the 115th overall pick in the 2024 First-Year Player Draft.

    Ehrhard got better each year at Oklahoma State, with improving physicality and a chance to handle center field. He is a plus runner who is hit-over-power, with his power potentially being a below-average tool. Unless he adds notable pop or maxes out his hit tool, the righty-hitting Ehrhard is likely capped as a fourth outfielder.

  • Red Sox's Brandon Neely: Lands with Boston

    The Red Sox have selected Neely with the 86th overall pick in the 2024 First-Year Player Draft.

    Neely has pitched primarily in relief during his collegiate career with Florida, and that's also been his most effective role. With his fastball typically sitting around 93 mph and without a dominant secondary offering, Neely doesn't currently have the profile of a high-leverage reliever in the majors.

  • Red Sox's Dominic Smith: Homers, drives in three

    Smith went 2-for-3 with a home run, a walk and three RBI Sunday against the Royals.

    Smith's second-inning two-run blast off Brady Singer gave the Red Sox an early three-run lead. He then provided insurance with an RBI single in the seventh that turned out to provide the game-winning run. It was the third multi-hit game in a week for Smith, who has added five RBI over the past two games. However, his days as the regular starter at first base appear to be numbered as Triston Casas (ribs) is beginning to prepare for a rehab assignment and is hoping to return to the Red Sox lineup by the end of the month.
