  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Prepping to start

    Whitlock (hip) is progressing in his rehab program and indicated Monday he is preparing to open the 2023 season as a starter, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    The right-hander started nine games last season but has primarily worked as a reliever since he made his MLB debut in 2021. Whitlock has been effective with a 2.73 ERA across 77 outings, and Boston now plans to move him to the rotation to begin the season. The 26-year-old underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right hip in late September and is expected be ready for spring training as he ramps up his throwing program in December.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Surgery completed

    Whitlock underwent successful arthroscopic right hip surgery Monday, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    With the Red Sox reporting that Whitlock experienced no complications with his procedure, the expectation is that he'll be back to full strength for spring training. What's less certain for Whitlock is which role he'll fill for the Boston pitching staff in 2023 after he dabbled between starting and working high-leverage relief this season, accruing a 4-2 record and six saves to go with a 3.45 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 82:15 K:BB across 78.1 innings. Expect manager Alex Cora and the Red Sox front office to should shed more light on Whitlock's role heading into the upcoming season at some point over the winter.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Officially lands on IL

    Whitlock (hip) was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday.

    Whitlock's placement on the injured list was expected since he's been shut down from throwing and will undergo surgery next week to address his right hip impingement. The right-hander is expected to be ready for spring training in 2023, while Connor Seabold was recalled from Triple-A Worcester to start Wednesday against the Reds.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Needs surgery, hopeful for spring

    Whitlcok has been shut down from throwing and will require hip surgery next week, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    Per Abraham, the expectation is that Whitlock will be ready for spring training. He gave up seven runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out 10 in seven innings over his final five appearances. Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican noted that Whitlock has looked uncomfortable walking around all season, so he has probably been pitching at less than 100 percent.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Credited with shaky hold

    Whitlock allowed three runs on four hits while striking out three over two innings to earn a hold in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Rangers.

    Whitlock followed starter Brayan Bello, who pitched six cruised innings. Whitlock cruised through the seventh before adversity struck in the eighth. He was tagged for a single, two home runs and flyout that Alex Verdugo tracked down in front of the bullpen in right field. It was the second consecutive game in which Whitlock allowed three runs and nearly wiped out a stellar pitching effort by a starter. Prior to his last two outings, the right-hander pitched well since returning from a hip injury July 15, including five saves, two holds, a 1.59 ERA and 23 strikeouts over 22.2 innings.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Locks down save

    Whitlock struck out one in a perfect inning and earned a save over Tampa Bay on Friday.

    Whitlock needed just eight pitches to roll through the Rays. It was his sixth save of the year and third in his last four appearances. The 26-year-old now owns a 2.90 ERA with a 72:13 K:BB through 71.1 innings this season. Whitlock should continue seeing a large portion of Boston's save opportunities while Tanner Houck (back) is out.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Picks up save

    Whitlock picked up the save against the Orioles on Saturday, allowing one run on two hits while striking out two and walking none over two innings.

    Whitlock threw 18 of 25 pitches for strikes in what turned out to be a two-inning save Saturday. This was the second game in a row in which Whitlock was called upon for the save. The righty has been reliable in relief, blowing just one save -- on April 8 in his first appearance of the year. Whitlock now has five saves on the season and a 3.03 ERA.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Shuts door Sunday

    Whitlock picked up the save Sunday against the Yankees. He pitched a perfect ninth inning while striking out two.

    Whitlock was fantastic Sunday, striking out Andrew Benintendi and Aaron Judge before getting Josh Donaldson to ground out to record his third save on the season. With Tanner Houck injured, Whitlock has recently split save opportunities with John Schreiber. Whitlock has a strong 2.98 ERA and 0.98 WHIP and has only blown one save opportunity in 23 appearances this season, but Schreiber has also been great. Expect the two relievers to continue splitting opportunities as long as Houck is sidelined.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Earns win in relief

    Whitlock (3-2) pitched the final two innings of Friday's 10-inning win over the Yankees, striking out three and walking one while not allowing a hit or a run.

    Whitlock entered with the Red Sox down one in the top of the ninth and retired the side in order. Boston tied the game in the bottom of the inning, and Whitlock remained on the mound to start extras, walking Aaron Judge to start the frame before getting three consecutive outs. Tommy Pham's walkoff single in the bottom of the 10th gave Whitlock and the Red Sox a win. It was his sixth straight multi-inning outing.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Records another multi-inning save

    Whitlock earned the save over the Guardians on Thursday, allowing one run on two hits and one walk while striking out one batter over two innings.

    Kutter Crawford and Jake Diekman combined to limit Cleveland to one run over seven innings, and Whitlock took over in the eighth with Boston holding a 4-1 lead. The right-hander allowed a run in that frame but pitched a scoreless ninth to finish off the save. Whitlock has picked up a two-inning save in each of his past two appearances, and given the ineffectiveness at the back end of Boston's bullpen this season, he could be emerging as the team's primary closer.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Notches two-inning save

    Whitlock struck out two batters over two scoreless innings and earned a save over the Guardians on Monday.

    Whitlock fired 15 of 19 pitches for strikes and had no trouble mowing down Cleveland's lineup. It was his second save of the year and first since April 19. In four appearances since returning from the injured list, Whitlock has punched out nine batters over six shutout frames. It's unclear how Boston plans to use its bullpen moving forward as John Schreiber earned the win and Tanner Houck did not pitch Monday.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Works two scoreless innings

    Whitlock struck out three over two scoreless innings in Friday's 5-4 extra-innings win over the Yankees.

    Whitlock, making his first appearance after being activated off the injured list, held Boston's one-run lead by setting down the side in order over the seventh and eighth innings. He had been a starter before hitting the IL, but Whitlock will serve a multi-inning relief role that could involve save opportunities. Closer Tanner Houck eventually blew the save Friday, but he's pitched well otherwise while stabilizing Boston's ninth-inning relief issues.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: Reinstated from injured list

    Whitlock (hip) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Friday.

    Whitlock served mainly as a starter for the Red Sox early in the season, posting a 3.51 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 48.2 innings over 13 appearances (nine starts). However, he served as a multi-inning reliever during his rehab assignment and allowed two runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out four in four innings over two appearances. The right-hander will pitch out of the bullpen for Boston following his activation, which will hinder his fantasy value since he isn't expected to be a regular part of the team's ninth-inning mix. Whitlock will be one of the top options to fill in as a starter if needed.
