  • Garrett Whitlock Sharp In Spring Debut

    Boston Red Sox right-hander Garrett Whitlock (hip) looked good in his Grapefruit League debut on Wednesday against the Tampa Bay Rays, tossing two hitless and scoreless innings while walking one and striking out three. The 26-year-old is making the transition to a full-time starting role this year for Boston, but he has been behind the other pitchers in camp after having hip surgery in the offseason. He will not be ready to take his first turn through the rotation to begin the year, but he should be ready by the middle of April. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect Whitlock to be as dominant as he was in relief, but he should stick in the rotation all year long as long as he stays healthy.

  • Garrett Whitlock, Brayan Bello Face Live Hitters

    Boston Red Sox pitchers Garrett Whitlock (hip) and Brayan Bello (forearm) both threw to live hitters on Saturday in camp. Whitlock showed no ill-effects from right hip surgery he had last September when he threw two string innings (46 pitches). His next step will be his Grapefruit League debut against the Rays on Wednesday. Bello tossed 17 pitches in his first live action against hitters, and he will throw two more innings of live batting practice on Wednesday. Bello is scheduled to make his first spring start around March 19 or 20. Whitlock has an outside chance to be ready for the start of the season, but if not, he'll likely only miss a start or two. Bello is certain to start the year on the injured list, but he should be back at some point in April.

  • Brayan Bello, Garrett Whitlock To Throw Live BP Saturday

    Boston Red Sox pitchers Brayan Bello (forearm) and Garrett Whitlock (hip) will throw live batting practice sessions in spring training on Saturday, according to manager Alex Cora. The Red Sox are taking it slow with Bello after he started having soreness in his right forearm in mid-February. The 23-year-old has a bright future in Boston, but he could be slightly delayed for the start of the 2023 regular season. Meanwhile, Whitlock's Opening Day status is in doubt, but like Bello, he might not need to miss much time to open the regular season, barring any further setbacks with hip. The 26-year-old has been more dominant for the BoSox out of the bullpen, but he could have a higher fantasy ceiling if used in Boston's rotation this year.
