Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Not in Saturday's lineup
Yoshida will not start Saturday's game against the Dodgers, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
Yoshida has had a near-everyday role for most of the season, but his off day here against Julio Urias means he's now sat against two of the last three southpaws the Red Sox have faced. Yoshida hasn't shown any splits whatsoever in his first MLB season, posting an identical 115 wRC+ against both lefties and righties, but given that he's slumped to a .206/.219/.284 line over his last 26 games, it makes sense that Boston would want to give him a few more days off, with those off days likely to come against same-sided pitching. Rob Refsnyder starts in left field.... See More ... See Less

Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Homers, drives in four
Yoshida went 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBI in Friday's 8-3 win over the Yankees.
Yoshida put an exclamation point on the Red Sox' four-run first inning, finding the short porch in right field at Yankee Stadium when he ripped a three-run blast off Jhony Brito. He plated another run in the second with an RBI single. Yoshida was on the bench for back-to-back games earlier this week as he battled through an August slump, but he's now tallied two straight multi-hit efforts, and his four RBI on Friday more than doubled his total for the month....

Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Enters Wednesday's game off bench
Yoshida went 0-for-2 in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to Washington.
Yoshida entered the game as a pinch hitter and finished in left field. He'd been held out of the starting lineup the first two games of the series. Including Monday's team off day, that would have been three full days off for the outfielder. As manager Alex Cora explained to MLB.com, Yoshida is adapting to a more rigorous travel schedule than he was accustomed to in Japan. "He's doing well. Like I said, we have to take care of him," Cora said. "There's nothing going on. We're just staying away from him for now." Yoshida is expected to start the series finale Thursday.... See More ...

Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Ends hitless run
Yoshida went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's 6-4 win over Seattle.
Yoshida's fourth-inning double put an end to an 0-for-19 stretch. He was given a day to rest Saturday after an 0-for-8 run, but Yoshida went hitless Sunday, Monday and his first at-bat Tuesday before snapping out of the funk. Despite the recent downturn, the outfielder maintains a respectable .306/.367/.484 line through 94 games (403 plate appearances).... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Gets break Saturday
Yoshida did not start in Saturday's 3-2 loss to San Francisco. He walked as a pinch hitter and scored a run in the ninth inning.
Yoshida was hitless over his last eight at-bats, including four groundouts to the right side of the infield in Friday's win. According to Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com, the Red Sox have learned when Yoshida hits a lot of groundballs to the right side, it's a sign he could use some rest. "I talked to him (Saturday) and he feels OK," Boston manager Alex Cora said. "But we're giving him today, let's see how it plays out, maybe (Sunday) too, you never know, and just get him ready for the week." Prior to the dry spell, Yoshida raked since the All-Star break with a slash line of .349/.378/.605.... See More ... See Less
