It was a reminder of the ebbs and flows of a baseball season. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal) The team doesn’t appear to be overly concerned by the tough doubleheader, though. Martín Pérez believes things will be just fine.

Red Sox Believe Garrett Whitlock’s ‘Stuff Will Play’ After Win Vs. Orioles

In a one-run game against a team he’s faced once before, Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora was taking a gamble by putting the ball in the hand of Rule 5 reliever Garrett Whitlock. It paid off, though, and he helped the Red Sox tack on to their lead. The righty bridged the gap after […] The post Red Sox Believe Garrett Whitlock’s ‘Stuff Will Play’ After Win Vs.

Red Sox’s Garrett Whitlock Calls Sunday’s MLB Debut ‘Dream Come True’

The Orioles dominated the Red Sox on Sunday as Baltimore beat up Boston’s pitching early and often. But not every hurler had a bad game. Garrett Whitlock was an unlikely hero of sorts in the Sox’s 11-3 loss as Fenway Park. The right-hander made his Major League Baseball debut in the third inning after the […] The post Red Sox’s Garrett Whitlock Calls Sunday’s MLB Debut ‘Dream Come True’ appeared first on NESN.com.

Photo by Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/ It will be a tough line to walk trying to develop and win at the same time. Welcome to the annual Over The Monster One Big Question season preview series. Over the next 40(ish) days, we will be running through every player on the 40-man roster and identifying a key question for them pertaining to the coming season. This should run us up to the start of the season, at least as it is scheduled now. We will go through the roster in alphabetical order.

Time also flies, apparently, when you’re stuck inside amid a pandemic for over a year waiting to be able to go places more than five miles outside your house again. Anyway, our top prospect voting is almost over, seemingly just after it started. We have just one more vote after this one, and the number 19 winner made some history. At least to my knowledge, for the first time we have a write-in winner. That winner is Garrett Whitlock,...

The Red Sox manager talked about that and what his brother meant to him in his year away from the game. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe) Cora also discussed the closer battle taking place between Matt Barnes and Adam Ottavino. To this point, the manager isn’t tipping his hand on which way he’s leaning.
