RP - BOS
Ryan Brasier will be Boston's opener on Monday against the Rays.
Brasier is unlikely to pitch more than an inning tonight. Martin Perez will receive an extra day of rest by the Red Sox going with a bullpen game tonight.
Ryan Brasier set down the side in order, striking out one, in the fifth inning of Wednesday's spring game against the Rays.
Brasier has now allowed three hits and one run while striking out four without a walk over five spring innings. The veteran reliever is fighting for a spot in the bullpen and is coming off a 2019 season when he finished with seven saves games but had blown four others.
Ryan Brasier struck out one in a scoreless inning to record his seventh save in a 2-0 win over the Twins on Monday.
Brasier got right into action after being out for six days on the bereavement list. The veteran reliever has been struggling and recorded his first save since April 21. The Red Sox are going closer by committee so Brasier may be in line for some more opportunities.
The Red Sox activated Ryan Brasier off the bereavement list on Monday.
Brasier wound up being away from the team for six days. He has been falling out of favor for save chances lately and doesn't need to be owned in most fantasy leagues. Matt Barnes is the preferred Red Sox reliever to own in fantasy.
The Red Sox placed Ryan Brasier on the bereavement/family medical emergency list.
Brasier will be away from the team for 24-72 hours. His shine as a fantasy asset had faded, however, as he is no longer getting the majority of save chances.
