Garrett Whitlock (pectoral) placed on IL

Garrett Whitlock will be placed on the 10-day IL after suffering the pectoral injury on Sunday. The Red Sox remain optimistic, stating the injury isn't "that serious".

Fantasy Impact

Red Sox manager Alex Cora says the plan is for Whitlock to spend the minimum ten days on the IL, although that also likely means he is done for the remainder of the regular season, or very close to it. Ideally he sees one or two appearances before being thrown into action in the playoffs, but we'll just have to see how quickly he recovers from the pectoral strain.

Garrett Whitlock pitches two scoreless on Tuesday

Garrett Whitlock looked sharp out of the Red Sox bullpen going two scoreless innings, and striking out two.

Fantasy Impact

Whitlock now owns a rock solid 1.85 ERA on the year. However, his fantasy value is extremely limited due to the fact that he does not earn any save chances.

Garrett Whitlock (vaccine side effects) reinstated from COVID-19 IL

Red Sox pitcher Garrett Whitlock was briefly on the COVID-19 IL but has since been reinstated and should slot back into his usual bullpen role.

Fantasy Impact

Whitlock has been a hidden gem in the bullpen for Boston this year with a 1.77 ERA and 21 strikeouts over 20.1 innings pitched. Expect him to continue being a key bullpen piece for the Sox while also being a solid fantasy value.
