Garrett Whitlock can't convert final strike, surrenders walk-off homer

Red Sox reliever Garrett Whitlock had Royals first baseman Nick Pratto down to a 3-2 count with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. Pratto proceeded to launch a solo homer, walking it off for Kansas City. That was the only hit (and only run) that Whitlock surrendered through his 2 2/3 innings on the mound. He tallied zero walks, one strikeout, and the loss as Boston ultimately fell to Kansas City by a score of 5-4.

Fantasy Impact

Whitlock has generally looked quite strong this season, posting a 1.21 ERA, 0.58 WHIP, and .132 OBA along with 9.27 K/9 and 1.21 BB/9 through 22 1/3 innings out of the bullpen this year. He's coming off an impressive July in which he surrendered just one run and one walk through 10 frames.

Fantasy Impact

Whitlock owns a 1.02 ERA, 0.57 WHIP, and .119 OBA through 17 2/3 innings out of the bullpen this season. He has walked just three batters, struck out 21, and gone 3-for-4 in save situations.

Garrett Whitlock closes out Guardians on Monday

Red Sox reliever Garrett Whitlock threw two perfect innings against the Guardians on Monday. He retired all six batters he faced, including two on strikeouts. Whitlock earned the save as Boston ultimately defeated Cleveland by a score of 3-1.

Fantasy Impact

Whitlock is 2-1 with a 3.13 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and .220 OBA through 17 games (nine starts) this season. When pitching out of the bullpen, he has amassed just one earned run, two walks, and 20 strikeouts over 15 2/3 innings. It's safe to say Boston will keep him in the bullpen going forward.

Garrett Whitlock activated from IL on Friday

Garrett Whitlock has been activated from the 15-day injured list on Friday and will be available during Boston's game against New York.

Fantasy Impact

Whitlock has been on the shelf since June 10 with right hip inflammation and has been working through a rehab assignment with Triple-A Worchester. He'll return to join the Red Sox bullpen and could be used in high-leverage situations, giving him value in deeper mixed leagues.

Garrett Whitlock to begin rehab assignment in Triple-A this weekend

Garrett Whitlock is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Worcester this weekend.

Fantasy Impact

Whitlock landed on the IL on June 10 with right hip inflammation. While on the IL, the Red Sox determined that when Whitlock returned it would be as a member of the bullpen. Considering he is expected to be used in high leverage situations, he will retain fantasy value when he rejoins the Red Sox.
