Hector Velázquez and Ryan Brasier reinstated to active roster

Hector Velázquez and Ryan Brasier reinstated to active roster

The bullpen becomes a little more whole. Everyone knows the Red Sox bullpen is a problem, and there really isn’t anyone in the organization that is going to be able to take it to the level it needs to be at. Yes, Durbin Feltman and Darwinzon Hernandez have very intriguing upside the likes of which is essentially unseen on the major-league roster. That said, both have shown they have some work to do to be major-league ready and even when they are they are extremely unproven. Still, while the final version of this bullpen will almost certainly include someone from outside the organization...

The Over The Monster Podcast-This bullpen is something

On today’s episode of the show Keaton and I breakdown how the Red Sox have been winning over this five game win streak. We look at the performance of the bullpen and rotation, and what we find might surprise you. After discussing the major league club we look down at the farm to discuss a promotion for Darwinzon Hernandez and most importantly some big-time love given to Triston Casas and Jarren Duran by Baseball America. The Red Sox upcoming week will not be an easy one with the Minnesota Twins to contend with. However, this is as good a time to play them as any with momentum on their...

Daily Red Sox Links: Chris Sale, Darwinzon Hernandez, Edwin Encarnación

Chris Sale was back on the mound in Baltimore on Saturday, and he’ll never forget how it all got started for him there. (Julian Benbow; Boston Globe) Darwinzon Hernandez just made his first major-league start, but he’s also still struggling with control down in Portland. Despite that, he’ll be on his way up to Pawtucket after a promotion. (Christopher Smith; Masslive) The Red Sox continued to sign a good chunk of their draft class, this time including top pick Cameron Cannon.

Red Sox 5, Rangers 9: Back to .500. Again.

Red Sox 5, Rangers 9: Back to .500. Again.

This was not the worst loss of the year, but it may have been the least enjoyable baseball game. This was a dumb baseball game. That’s all I have to say on the matter. I really have to write about this game, huh? I’m going to be totally honest with everyone right now: I don’t really want to! This was a dumb, boring, slog of a game and everyone would have been better off if it didn’t happen. That said, it did have a little bit of excitement, particularly early, with Darwinzon Hernandez on the mound for his first major-league start. It was clear before the game even started that he...

Red Sox vs. Rangers: Darwinzon Hernandez makes his first start

Jackie Bradley Jr. has the day off. The Red Sox (34-33) look to stay above .500 with a win against the Rangers (35-30) tonight at Fenway Park (7:10 p.m.) behind Darwinzon Hernandez, the team’s number one pitching prospect, who will make his second big league appearance and first start when he toes the rubber tonight. He’ll be faced by someone named Ariel Jurado, which — sure. The problem is that this Red Sox team seems consigned to (extremely) relative mediocrity, and in some ways are the reverse-image Rangers: expensive and barely in the playoff race despite themselves. The Rangers...

Darwinzon Hernandez to come up for start on Tuesday

Darwinzon Hernandez to come up for start on Tuesday

It will be the lefty’s first career start. The Red Sox are reeling right now having lost four of their last five games following a sweep in Kansas City. That’s the way things have been all year for this team after that season-opening disaster out west as it’s continuously been one step forward one step back. They can’t seem to get any sustained momentum moving forward, and now they’ll be looking for a spark coming up from the minors. Nathan Eovaldi is still not back in the rotation, and he’s recently suffered another setback. Meanwhile, Ryan Weber didn’t work out in that spot...

OTM Open Thread 6/11: It is Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, everyone. Today is Darwinzon Hernandez Day for the Red Sox as the top prospect is coming up to make the start for Boston. The team is playing some truly bad all-around baseball right now, so any sort of spark is going to be welcome as they try to get back on track. Meanwhile, there’s not a whole lot else going on in the sports world today with no day baseball and the NHL and NBA both off. Use this space to discuss whatever you’d like. As always, just be nice to each other.

John Tomase explains why it is we all love David Ortiz so much. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston) For as terrible as all the news has been, it could have been so much worse. (Rick Sobey; Boston Herald) Last night, the legend did arrive in Boston to continue his treatment and recovery here. (Ian Browne; RedSox.com) All of this was a reminder that, as Alex Cora likes to remind us frequently, there is a lot more to life than just baseball. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe) As far as the baseball itself goes, though, the manager explains his decision to pitch to Nomar Mazara in the ninth. (Rob...

Brock Holt returns from the injured list

Darwinzon Hernandez gets sent down just a day after being called up. Brock Holt has been out since the very start of the year, last appearing out in Arizona while the Red Sox were still in the midst of their disastrous, season-opening road trip out west. He originally went down with some vision problems resulting from a scratched cornea, but he’s suffered some setbacks in rehab including a shoulder impingement that extended his absence. It seems he’s finally ready to rejoin the roster and will be active in time for the series opener back at Fenway against the Indians. To make room on...
