  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Day off Friday

    Duran is not in the starting lineup Friday against the Yankees.

    Duran will take a seat after he went 3-for-10 with a double and an RBI over the three-game series with Cleveland. Adam Duvall (wrist) was activated from the 60-day injured list Friday and will start in center field and bat fifth in the series opener with New York.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Replaces Verdugo

    Duran batted leadoff and went 2-for-5 with an RBI in Thursday's 10-3 loss to Cleveland.

    Duran was moved up to leadoff after Alex Verdugo was benched due to a lack of hustle during Wednesday's game. Verdugo is expected back Friday and presumably will return to the leadoff spot. The Red Sox are also expected to activate Adam Duvall (wrist) from the injured list, which will impact Duran's playing time going forward.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Starts Tuesday

    Duran started in center field and went 1-for-2 with a double in Tuesday's 5-4 win over Cleveland.

    Duran, who was held out of the starting nine Monday against Tampa Bay lefty Shane McClanahan, returned as a starter against Guardians righty Shane Bieber. The Red Sox gave Duran a vote of confidence Monday, when the team designated Raimel Tapia for assignment to make room for Christian Arroyo's return from a hamstring injury. It's up to Duran to fulfill the team's belief. After a scorching hot start when he first arrived from Triple-A Worcester, Duran has cooled off significantly, batting .132 over the last 15 games. With Adam Duvall (wrist) due back Friday, Duran's opportunities are expected to be reduced.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Taking seat Monday

    Duran is absent from the lineup for Monday's tilt versus the Rays, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    He'll get a day off as the Rays throw lefty ace Shane McClanahan, with Enrique Hernandez patrolling center field. Duran has just a .336 OPS with a 42.3 percent strikeout rate over his last 13 games, which isn't great timing with Adam Duvall (wrist) due back later this week.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: On bench for afternoon game

    Duran will sit for the first half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    Duran will likely return to the lineup against Tyler Glasnow in the nightcap but won't be asked to start twice in one day. He hit .987 OPS through his first 29 games this season, but his .308 OPS over his last 10 games could lead to a loss in playing time if the slump continues. Rob Refsnyder will start in center field in his absence.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: On bench amid slump

    Duran is not in the starting lineup Friday at Arizona.

    Raimel Tapia is starting in center field and batting leadoff versus the Diamondbacks and right-hander Brandon Pfaadt. Duran was terrific in April and the early part of May, but he's gone 0-for-19 with eight strikeouts and zero walks over his last five games.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Shakes off early troubles

    Duran went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 9-4 win over Seattle.

    Duran struck out twice in his first two at-bats then came up short trying to make a diving catch on a sinking line drive from Teoscar Hernandez that got behind him for a triple to plate the Mariners' first two runs. The Duran of 2021 and 2022 might have let those plays fester and impact him the rest of the game, but the 2023 version flushed the adverse outcomes and moved on. The player that slashed a combined .219/.269/.354 the previous two seasons now has a line of .351/.406/.585 with three homers and seven steals through 27 games in 2023.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Leadoff a one-day thing

    Duran batted leadoff and went 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Monday's 10-1 loss to the Mariners.

    Duran was moved to leadoff, pushing Alex Verdugo to second, but the move is a one-day thing, Chris Cotillo of reports. Boston manager Alex Cora decided to drop Verdugo to second, normally the spot for Masataka Yoshida, who was given the night off. Duran has experience hitting atop the order, but Cora is pleased with Verdugo leading off and Duran hitting in the middle of the order. It may have been an attempt to shake the Red Sox out of a slump that, with Monday's result, reached four consecutive losses and six over the last seven games.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Moves up to leadoff

    Duran is starting in the leadoff spot for the Red Sox on Monday versus the Mariners, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    It's the first start of the season in the leadoff spot for Duran, who has mostly batted fifth this month. The young outfielder has been very productive with the big club but has actually scuffled a bit of late with a .514 OPS over his last seven contests. Normal leadoff hitter Alex Verdugo is batting second.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Gets aboard three times

    Duran went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, one RBI, a stolen base and two runs scored in Wednesday's 5-2 win over Atlanta.

    This was Duran's third multi-hit effort through nine games in May, a span in which he's gone 10-for-30 (.333) with four steals and four RBI. The outfielder went just 1-for-11 last weekend against the Phillies, but it appears he's avoided a serious slump. He's slashing .372/.420/.603 with two home runs, 14 RBI, 14 runs scored, 12 doubles and six steals through 88 plate appearances.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Nabs fifth steal

    Duran went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's 9-3 loss to Atlanta.

    The 26-year-old has slowed down a bit at the plate, but he's still batting .296 (8-for-27) through the first eight games in May, albeit with a 2:9 BB:K. Since his mid-April promotion, Duran is slashing .360/.405/.587 with two homers, five steals, 12 runs and 13 RBI in 21 contests, but his .463 BABIP isn't sustainable and his production could deflate quickly if his strikeouts continue to pile up.
