Boston Red Sox

AL East


John Schreiber allowed two runs, two hits, and two walks while pitching the seventh inning of Saturday's game against the Yankees. He struck out a pair of batters but was charged with the loss as Boston ultimately fell to New York by a score of 7-5.

Fantasy Impact: Schreiber is 3-4 with a 2.18 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and .187 OBA through 61 outings with Boston this season. He has been one of their best bullpen arms and most welcome surprises, totaling 10.02 K/9, 2.61 BB/9, and 21 holds while going 8-for-11 in save situations. Look for him to bounce back from the loss in his next outing.

Triston Casas went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer against the Yankees on Saturday. He drove in three runs and drew three walks in the contest. Boston ultimately fell to New York by a score of 7-5.

Fantasy Impact: Casas is hitting 6-for-46 (.130) with four homers, eight RBI, 12 walks, and 14 strikeouts since being promoted to the majors. While his hitting hasn't been great, the Red Sox have to like what they've seen from him in terms of power and drawing walks.

Fantasy Impact: Hernandez is hitting an impressive 7-for-18 (.389) with four walks over the course of his last six games. He found himself back in the lead-off role on Friday and could hold onto that position for the time being.

Matt Strahm allowed one run on one hit and two walks during the eighth inning of Sunday's game against the Yankees. He struck out two batters but was charged with the loss as Boston ultimately fell to New York by a score of 5-4.

Fantasy Impact: Strahm was impressive at the start of the year but has now faltered a bit, allowing three earned runs over his last 1 1/3 innings. There is still reason to believe that he can get back on track over the final stretch.

Fantasy Impact: Ort is 1-1 with a 5.79 ERA, 8.49 K/9, and 5.40 BB/9 through 20 outings this season. He has looked solid as of late, though, surrendering zero earned runs over his last eight games dating back to August 29.

Trevor Story has been placed on the 10-day IL with a left heel contusion, retroactive to 9/19. (Source: Chris Cotillo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Story had been making some progress toward a return earlier in the week but will ultimately need more time to recover. While he still may return before the end of the season, the Red Sox may very well opt to keep him out for the rest of 2022. He potentially finishes a disappointing season with a .238 average, .737 OPS, and .301 xwOBA.

Fantasy Impact: This was Seabold's first big-league outing since July 8. He is now 0-3 with 19 earned runs, 17 strikeouts, and six walks through four starts this season. He should be left on waivers in all fantasy baseball leagues.
