  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Three more hits, including walk-off

    Duran went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Monday's 7-6 walk-off win over the Blue Jays.

    Duran figured prominently in the come-from-behind win, in which Boston scored five times in the final two innings. Thanks to a miscommunication by Toronto's left side of the infield, his eighth-inning popup fell to the ground for a double followed by David Hamilton's two-run home run. An inning later, Duran produced the walk-off run with a single. The outfielder has multiple hits in five consecutive games (12-for-23) and has hit safely in 14 straight.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Homers in win

    Hamilton started at second base and went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Monday's 7-6 win over Toronto.

    Hamilton belted his fifth home run of the season, a two-run shot in the bottom of the eighth inning that closed a deficit to 6-4. It continued a renaissance that began mid-May; Hamilton has an .869 OPS with 17 steals, eight doubles, one triple, four home runs and 13 RBI over the last 36 games. The offensive production has led to Hamilton being a lineup regular, typically at shortstop but sometimes at second base, an unsettled position at this stage.

  • Red Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Knocks in two as PH

    Gonzalez entered as a pinch hitter and delivered a two-run single in the eighth inning of Monday's 7-6 win over the Blue Jays.

    Gonzalez was part of a four-run uprising in the eighth that set up Boston's walk-off win. After he was sent up to pinch hit for Dominic Smith against a lefty, Toronto countered with a righty reliever, and Gonzalez delivered a clutch two-out, two-run single to tie the game. He took over at first base for the final frame. Gonzalez has served as the shortside of a platoon at second base since being activated off the injured list a little more than a week ago. He's also filled in at multiple position whenever needed.

  • Red Sox's Rafael Devers: Drills 15th home run

    Devers went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and two runs scored in Monday's win over Toronto.

    Devers put the Red Sox on the board with a two-run shot in the fourth inning. He has five homers in 20 games this month, though only two have come in his last 16 appearances. Devers bumped his slash line up to a robust .282/.366/.544 with 45 runs scored and 33 extra-base hits.

  • Red Sox's Tanner Houck: Fans seven in quality start

    Houck allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk over 6.2 innings in a no-decision Monday. He struck out seven during the win against the Blue Jays.

    Houck gave up just one run through six frames before the Blue Jays put two more runs on his final line during their five-run seventh inning. He's produced six quality starts in his last seven outings, giving him 13 through 16 total starts. Houck owns a terrific 2.18 ERA with a 101:18 K:BB through 103.1 frames. His next start is projected to be at home against the Padres.

  • Red Sox's Kenley Jansen: Secures third win

    Jansen (3-1) allowed a hit in a scoreless inning Monday. He struck out one and earned a win over Toronto.

    Jansen worked a quick ninth inning, needing only 10 pitches to keep the game tied 6-6. Boston won the game in the bottom of the frame and gave him his second win of the month. Jansen is 2-0 with eight saves and a 0.77 ERA over his last 11 appearances.

  • Red Sox's Vaughn Grissom: Not ready for rehab assignment

    Grissom has been cleared for a running program and is making progress in his recovery from a right hamstring strain, but the Red Sox haven't yet cleared him to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    Though Grissom seems to be trending in a positive direction as he works his way back from the hamstring strain that sent him to the injured list June 2, he looks to be at least a week away from seeing game action in the minors. Once he's ready to return from the IL, Grissom may not have a regular role waiting for him with the big club, as Enmanuel Valdez has found success as a strong-side platoon player at second base following his call-up from Triple-A Worcester on May 29. Rather than having Grissom displace Valdez as the team's starter or have him occupy the short side of a platoon, the Red Sox may prefer to option Grissom to Worcester upon activating him so that he can receive regular reps.

  • Red Sox's Triston Casas: Gets MRI to check healing

    Casas received an MRI on Monday to check the healing of his injured ribs, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    The results aren't expected to be known until Tuesday, but Casas noted that he's feeling good and should have a "quick turnaround" before he resumes swinging a bat, per Gabrielle Starr of the Boston Herald. Casas has been doing some baseball activities but hasn't progressed as quickly as hoped. He's continuing to aim for a return from the 60-day injured list early next week, but even if the MRI yields favorable results, Casas could still face an uphill battle to make it back by his target date.

  • Red Sox's Josh Winckowski: Bumped up from Triple-A

    The Red Sox recalled Winckowski from Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    Winckowski will give the Red Sox a fresh arm in the bullpen who's capable of covering multiple innings. Boston was in need of some reinforcement in the bullpen after the team leaned on eight relievers to cover all nine innings of Sunday's 7-4 win over the Reds.

  • Red Sox's Isaiah Campbell: Recalled from Triple-A

    The Red Sox recalled Campbell from Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Chris Henrique of Beyond the Monster reports.

    Campbell held a 12.79 ERA in seven appearances earlier this season with the Red Sox before getting injured and then optioned. He righted the ship while at Worcester, posting a 2.19 ERA and 18:3 K:BB in 12.1 frames.

  • Red Sox's Brad Keller: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Red Sox optioned Keller to Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Chris Henrique of Beyond the Monster reports.

    Keller has allowed 10 runs over 16.2 innings as a low-leverage reliever for the Red Sox. He's being replaced by a fresh arm after he threw 31 pitches and allowed three runs over one inning in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Reds.

  • Red Sox's Reese McGuire: Starts with Wong on paternity list

    McGuire will start at catcher and bat eighth in Monday's game against the Blue Jays.

    McGuire will make the first of what will likely be two or three starts versus Toronto after the Red Sox placed top backstop Connor Wong (personal) on the paternity list Monday. Assuming Wong is away from the Red Sox for the maximum three games, McGuire will presumably move back into the No. 2 role following Thursday's team off day. The Red Sox called up Tyler Heineman from Triple-A Worcester to provide an insurance option at catcher behind McGuire while Wong is on paternity leave.

  • Red Sox's Cam Booser: Sent back to minors

    The Red Sox optioned Booser to Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Chris Henrique of Beyond the Monster reports.

    This transaction looks to be entirely due to Booser having minor-league options available and having pitched each of the last three days, as he likely wasn't going to be available for at least a day or two. Booser should be back with the big club soon.

  • Red Sox's Tyler Heineman: Elevated from Triple-A

    The Red Sox recalled Heineman from Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    Heineman will join the big club in advance of its three-game series with the Blue Jays while top backstop Connor Wong (personal) goes on the paternity list in a corresponding move. Reese McGuire will start at catcher Monday and should serve as the Red Sox's primary option behind the plate over Heineman until Wong likely rejoins the team Thursday.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Goes on paternity leave

    The Red Sox placed Wong on the paternity leave list Monday, Chris Henrique of Beyond the Monster reports

    Wong's placement on the paternity list explains why he's out of the lineup for Monday's contest against the Blue Jays. He will likely miss the entirety of the three-game set versus Toronto before rejoining the active roster Friday, when the Red Sox take on the Padres. Wong will put his season-best 13-game hitting streak on hold while he's away from the Red Sox.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Sitting against righty Monday

    Valdez is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Blue Jays, Gabrielle Starr of the Boston Herald reports.

    Since he was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on May 29, Valdez has operated in the strong side of a platoon at second base while slashing .308/.390/.654 with four home runs and one stolen base over a stretch of 20 games. Though his performance doesn't warrant a downturn in playing time, Valdez could nonetheless find himself as the odd man out of the lineup against right-handed pitching as a consequence of the Red Sox regaining health in the outfield. The recent returns of Tyler O'Neill and Wilyer Abreu from injuries will push Ceddanne Rafaela from center field to shortstop and David Hamilton from shortstop to second base Monday, leaving no room for the lefty-hitting Valdez even though Toronto will bring a righty (Chris Bassitt) to the hill.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Getting rest Monday

    Wong is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Blue Jays, Gabrielle Starr of the Boston Herald reports.

    Wong will get a break after he started behind the plate in all three of the Red Sox's games in Cincinnati over the weekend. Reese McGuire will receive the starting nod at catcher in Monday's series opener while Wong puts his 13-game hitting streak on hold, barring an appearance off the bench as a pinch hitter.

  • Red Sox's Bryan Mata: Rehab moving to Triple-A

    The Red Sox will transfer Mata's (shoulder) rehab assignment to Triple-A Worcester this week, Peter Abraham and Alex Speier of The Boston Globe report.

    Mata made two appearances (both starts) for Double-A Portland last week, throwing five shutout innings. The right-hander was initially sidelined in February by a hamstring injury, which has since healed, but shoulder soreness ensued. Mata, who is out of minor-league options, can remain on his latest rehab assignment until July 15, at which point the Red Sox will have to decide how to proceed. The club was focused on making him a reliever prior to hamstring injury, and it's unlikely Mata would be part of the parent club's rotation.
