Player Outlook
Chris Martin's first season with the Red Sox was possibly the finest of his career. The 37-year-old led qualified relievers with a miniscule 1.05 ERA, while his 3.82 Win Probability Added was 5th and the highest mark for a non-closer. After posting the most strikeouts of his career in 2022, Martin's strikeout rate (23.1%) dropped by nearly 10 percentage points last year, but he continued to induce plenty of grounders (51%) and rarely issued a free pass. The right-hander's 4.0% walk rate was 2nd-best among relief pitchers, as Martin continues to be one of the premiere setup men in the league. Some ratio regression is expected in 2024, but Martin's overall consistency from year to year should yield plenty of holds and the occasional ancillary save for Boston.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Goes on 15-day IL

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Nursing injury to non-throwing shoulder

    Martin wasn't available for Sunday's 9-2 win over the Twins and hasn't pitched since Wednesday due to soreness in his non-throwing shoulder, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Even though the injury is to Martin's left shoulder, the Red Sox are concerned that his mechanics could be affected as a result. If he's not feeling any better after an off day Monday, the Red Sox could move Martin to the 15-day injured list and call up another pitcher from Triple-A Worcester to take his spot in the bullpen.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Shaky in first spring appearance.

    Martin (groin) allowed two hits and an unearned run while recording just one out in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports. Martin has been bothered by the groin injury since March 9, with Thursday marking his spring training debut. He was understandably rusty, so his results aren't of particular concern yet. Martin is expected to be ready for Opening Day, and he projects to serve as Boston's top setup man.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: In line for Grapefruit League debut

    Martin (groin) will make his Grapefruit League debut Thursday against the Orioles, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports. Martin has been working his way back from an early-March groin injury.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Impressive velocity in MiLB game

    Martin (groin) was throwing 95-to-96 mph during a minor-league game Tuesday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. That's right around what he averaged with his four-seamer last season, which seems like a good sign as he works his way back from a groin injury. Martin is expected to pitch in another game Friday, although it's not clear whether that will be against minor- league hitters or in a Grapefruit League contest. He's tracking toward being ready for Opening Day, and it's possible he'll be needed to close if Kenley Jansen (back) isn't ready.

Martin estimates he'll need four appearances to be ready for the regular season.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Expected to be ready for opener

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Monday that Martin (groin) has time to be ready for Opening Day, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Right groin tightness prevented Martin from throwing a scheduled live bullpen session Saturday, but he was able to play catch Sunday and looks to be in line to do so again Monday. It's not clear when he might be ready for a Grapefruit League appearance, but this seems to be something Martin should be able to recover from soon.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Downplays injury

    Martin said his groin tightness is a minor concern and that he's playing catch Sunday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Nails down third save

    Martin worked a perfect ninth inning Friday to record his third save of the season in a 3-2 win over the White Sox. Two of those saves have come in the last week as Martin fills in for Kenley Jansen (COVID-19) as Boston's closer. The assignment is well-deserved -- Martin hasn't been tagged for a run since late July, reeling off 20 straight scoreless appearances and adding a win and seven holds to his ledger along the way. On the season, the veteran righty sports a scintillating 1.05 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 46:8 K:BB through 51.1 innings.
