SP - BOS - MiLB
Connor Seabold was placed on the 15-day IL Saturday with a right forearm extensor strain.
Seabold has made three starts this season and has an 11.91 ERA, 2.56 WHIP, and a .513 BABIP. Even with the small sample size, it is safe to move on from Seabold right now unless you are in a dynasty format.
Red Sox starter Connor Seabold allowed seven runs, nine hits, and two walks over 2 2/3 innings against the Yankees on Friday evening. He struck out just two batters and was charged with the loss as Boston ultimately fell to New York by a score of 12-5.
Seabold is now 0-2 with 15 earned runs through 11 1/3 innings (two starts). He has posted a solid 10.32 K/9 rate but struggled in general this season.
Red Sox starter Connor Seabold allowed just one run over four innings of work against the Cubs on Sunday afternoon. His final line included six hits, two walks, four strikeouts, and the no-decision. Boston ultimately defeated Chicago by a score of 4-2 in 11 innings.
Seabold looked much better on Sunday as opposed to last week in Toronto when he allowed seven runs over 4 2/3 innings. The 26-year-old still has no fantasy relevance, but it was refreshing to see him pitch a solid game and show Boston that he could permanently work his way into the rotation.
Red Sox starter Connor Seabold made his 2022 debut against the Blue Jays on Monday, allowing seven runs, nine hits, and one walk over 4 2/3 innings of work. On a positive note, he did strike out seven batters in the process. Seabold was still hit with the loss as Boston ultimately fell to Toronto by a score of 7-2, snapping its seven-game winning streak.
Seabold utilized his four-seamer the most, followed by his changeup, then his slider. He also threw his curveball three times. The slider was most effective in terms of striking batters out, generating a 50 percent strikeout rate and 75 percent whiff rate, but it was also hit into play far too often (.408 xBA, 1.075 xSLG, and .603 xwOBA).
Red Sox pitching prospect Connor Seabold might make his MLB debut on Saturday against the White Sox.
Seabold was scratched from Thursday's start at Triple-A Worcester and placed on Boston's taxi squad. The 25-year-old has pitched well in the minors this season, but he won't be a recommended fantasy option in a difficult matchup.
