The Boston Red Sox are preparing to play their final game of a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs. The Red Sox won game one by a score of 8-3, and it was their sixth straight win. They dropped the middle game to the Cubs 10-4 snapping their win streak, but they have still won 9 of their last 11. Before today’s game, they made a few roster moves.
Red Sox Roster Moves
- RHP Jake Faria selected to the major league roster from AAA Worcester
- RHP Tayler Scott Designated for Assignment
Bottom Line for the Red Sox:
Scott has struggled with the Red Sox playing in four games and making one start, he had a 4.91 ERA, and in his four games, he posted a 9.83 FIP, a 2.72 WHIP, a 9.8 BB/9, and a 4.9 K/9. Scott pitched in both games against the Cubs. In his first appearance, he went 0.2 innings giving up just one hit; he didn’t allow a run, and then yesterday, he went one inning giving up two runs on three hits. Faria this season with AAA Worcester 19 games, with nine being starts; he was 3-2 with a 6.47 ERA, and he also had a 1.63 WHIP, a 5.7 BB/9, and a 7.4 K/9. It remains to be seen what the plan is with Faria; he may have been called up to be an opener, as the Red Sox will have a spot for two openers in their series against the A’s that will start on Monday.
