Darwinzon Hernandez News
Boston Red Sox reliever Darwinzon Hernandez (COVID-19) is expected to be activated sometime next week after testing positive for the virus in July. He'll initially join the club in a long-relief role, but the inkling is that he'll shift into the starting rotation after he's built up enough arm strength. The lefty will throw three innings in his next outing at Pawtucket and will be a welcomed addition to the Red Sox, who have struggled mightily with pitching this season. Hernandez struck out 57 batters in 30 1/3 innings as a reliever in 2019, but it came at the expense of a 4.45 ERA. Fantasy managers may want to wait until he makes a start or two before deciding to pick him up.
Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Darwinzon Hernandez (COVID) has continued to throw at the teams alternate site and is getting stretched out to throw multiple innings. Theres no word for sure if they want him to start games in Beantown this season, but they could certainly use an upgrade to their starting staff. Hernandez was a late arrival to summer camp after testing positive for COVID-19, and is likely a couple weeks away if hes going to join the club as a starter. The lefty made just one start in 29 appearances a year ago, but he impressed as a reliver striking out 57 batters in 30 1/3 IP. Managers should monitor Hernandezs status over the next couple of weeks since hes worth adding once active.
Boston Red Sox pitchers Eduardo Rodriguez, Josh Taylor and Darwinzon Hernandez are all getting closer to rejoining the team after their positive COVID-19 tests. Manager Ron Roenicke stated that all three of the left-handers are making progress as they attempt to return to Fenway Park with the remainder of the team. All three of them actually, the testing has been better on all three of them, Roenicke said. We know theyre getting over it and once we start getting those better tests, were getting close. Rodriguez will look to rejoin the rotation as soon as possible and fantasy owners should value the 27-year-old as they would under normal circumstances.
