It's never easy to find capable bullpen arms in the MLB and now the Boston Red Sox will have to work to replace on their own. The team got a bad injury update on relief pitcher Matt Andriese as he will be placed on the 10-day injured list due to a right hamstring injury suffered on Friday night.
Matt Andriese Injury Update
Andriese made his 26th appearance of the season against the Philadelphia Phillies and gave up 2 earned runs on 2 hits and 1 walk in just 1.0 inning of work. Manager Alex Cora said the veteran righty was limping off the field after throwing his final pitch and it is now clear as to why.
The 31-year-old reliever will now be sidelined through the All-Star break. He could also be optioned down to Triple-A upon his return given his recent brutal stretch of performances. Andriese has blown three saves and taken two losses since the start of May.
Overall, Andriese has posted a 6.03 ERA and 1.77 WHIP across 37.1 innings pitched this season. He has also racked up 38 strikeouts and allowed 11 walks. The Red Sox have yet to announce what the corresponding roster move will be in this situation.
Boston remains atop the AL East with a 55-34 record and will look to capture its first division title since 2018. The Red Sox currently have the sixth-best odds to win the World Series at +1200, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
