Red Sox to promote Jarren Duran

Red Sox to promote Jarren Duran

9:35 am: While Doran’s promotion may still mean a significant reduction in Jackie Bradley Jr’s playing time – and possibly the end of his time in Boston – it appears that the precipitating factor for Doran’s return to the big business isn’t Bradley’s bad offensive production but Kiki Hernandez’s likely COVID-19 infection. According to an updated version of the same story, Speier reported that Hernández’s initial tests came back negative, but he continued to show symptoms that indicate a possible infection.

Hernandez is expected to remain off the team until his symptoms subside and Red Sox medical staff are confident he is not COVID positive. Players are allowed to be put on COVID-19 IL without a positive test provided they show symptoms or have been exposed to the virus. Since there is no minimum duration for COVID-19 IL, Hernandez can return once he feels better and is confirmed not positive for the virus.

9:23 am: After failing to keep pace with the Yankees, Rays and Blue Jays in the first plus month of the 2022 season, the Red Sox may be preparing to turn things around. Citing unnamed sourcesAlex Speer of the Boston Globe reports on that player Garen Duran He will join the big league club at Fenway Park in tonight’s opening game against the White Sox. The corresponding movement is not yet known.

This will be the second taste of Majors Majors for Duran, who scored a meager 0.215/.241/.336 triple in 112 appearances in the Major League in 2021. He hit .370/.460/.574 starting in 63 board appearances in Triple-A Worcester The Sox brass, however, hopes to be able to boost the offensive, which is currently ranked 27 (ahead only of Oakland, Kansas City, and Cincinnati) with the wRC+82 team.

Even if they continue to roll out the same lineup, the Boston faithful can probably expect some offensive improvement simply from the midfield rebound. Four regular Sox – Trevor’s storyAnd Alex VerdugoAnd Kiki HernandezAnd Christian Vasquez They have track records of purposeful production and are not old enough to explain significant declines. The confluence of recessions is surely ill-timed, but there is no reason to expect Alex Korraand Chaim Bloom and Brian O’Halloran to do anything but watch and wait for four of these four to come out of a coma early in the season.

It’s unlikely that you’ll continue to see their names on Cora’s squad cards as they are the first main man Bobby Dalbeck (Which is facing pressure from a prospective 22-year-old Triston Casas) and batting player Jackie Bradley Jr., which may take place as soon as tonight. After eight productive years in Boston (including performing an ALCS MVP and a World Championship title in 2018), Bradley’s production has been discontinued. After signing a two-year deal worth $24 million With the Brewers ahead of the 2021 season. Traded (along with expectations David Hamilton And Alex Pinellas) Back to Boston defensive player Renfro hunter Before this season closed, but his numbers hardly rebounded. In 508 plate appearances between Milwaukee and Boston, 32-year-old Bradley made a paltry .166/.239/.261 cut, including this year’s .181/.253/.264 output; He’s cut much more than .239/ .321/ .412 over the previous eight seasons. These, of course, would hardly be expected by a team with championship aspirations from an ordinary team, even if they were to provide consistently high-quality defense at the oddball Fenway Park.

Since the corresponding move is not known yet, it is unclear if Doran’s recall means the end of Bradley’s tenure in Boston. Should the Sox choose to part with their beloved defensive player, they would still be on the hook for the roughly $8 million remaining of his $9.5 million salary in 2022, in addition to the $8 million total buyout for his 2023 mutual option. The team can also choose to send out any rarely used reserve Franchi Cordero (who has the option available) or one of the 14 shooters currently on his active list for the mansion. Regardless of what the move means for Bradley’s future, though, Sox fans can expect at least a slight increase in outdoor production—just without a familiar face in the lineup.
