  • Red Sox Place Brayan Bello On Injured List, Activate Matt Barnes

    The Red Sox have placed right-hander Brayan Bello on the 15-day injured list due to a left groin strain. Boston also optioned righty Kaleb Ort to Triple-A Worcester, with recently-acquired first baseman Eric Hosmer and relievers Matt Barnes and Darwinzon Hernández taking the active roster spots. Barnes is back from the 60-day injured list. He takes the 40-man roster spot of Jackie Bradley…

  • Matt Barnes Could Return Next Week

    Boston Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes (shoulder), who has been on the 15-day injured list since May 31 with right shoulder inflammation, will make another minor league rehab outing for Double-A Portland this week, according to manager Alex Cora. Barnes will then throw in back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday for Portland. Cora said there's a chance that the right-hander can return next week. Barnes has a rough 7.94 ERA, 5.30 FIP and 1.71 WHIP in 17 innings for the Red Sox this year and will likely be eased into low-leverage innings out of the bullpen when he returns. The 32-year-old pitched for Triple-A Worcester last Friday and Saturday, and his fastball was at 94-95 mph on Friday.

  • Matt Barnes Playing Catch

    Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Matt Barnes (shoulder) has graduated to playing catch at the team's spring training facilities, and the next step for him will be to throw a bullpen session. The Red Sox say he is improving, although his latest MRI exam on June 2 showed some fluid in his shoulder, according to skipper Alex Cora. The 31-year-old right-hander had a 7.94 ERA, 1.71 WHIP, 14 strikeouts and 12 walks in 20 appearances for the Red Sox before he landed on the injured list, so the Red Sox won't rush him back to their bullpen, and he could be in for more of a low-leverage role once he does return. In his absence, Tanner Houck has emerged as Boston's preferred choice in the closer role.

  • Matt Barnes Could Be Back Soon

    Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora said that the team remains hopeful that relief pitcher Matt Barnes (shoulder) will miss the minimum time on the injured list and return to the team on June 15. Barnes felt pain in his shoulder while warming up on May 30 and was put on the injured list the following day. The right-hander is dealing with fluid in his right shoulder after undergoing an MRI exam. Barnes has two saves this year, but he just hasn't been the same pitcher since the second half of last year. He allowed 15 earned runs on 17 hits while striking out 14 and walking 12 in 17 innings before going on the injured list. At best, Barnes will be involved in a closing committee in Boston when he returns.

  • Matt Barnes Placed On Injured List

    The Boston Red Sox placed right-handed reliever Matt Barnes (shoulder) on the 15-day injured list on Wednesday with right shoulder inflammation and reinstated left-hander Matt Strahm from the COVID-19 injured list in a corresponding move. Barnes' injured list placement is retroactive to May 31. Ever since the second half of last year, Barnes has really struggled, and he's allowed 15 earned runs in 17 innings while recording two saves, striking out 14 and walking 12 in his 20 relief appearances for Boston this year. With the 31-year-old struggling, the Red Sox have had to turn to a closer-by-committee approach featuring Jake Diekman and John Schreiber. Strahm could also enter the mix now that he's back in the bullpen.
