  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Working on split-finger fastball

    Crawford is working on a split-finger fastball that he feels would complement his existing repertoire, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. "All my stuff is moving glove side, away from righties and into lefties. The splitter would open up the other side of the plate," Crawford said.

    Crawford, who was projected as a rotation lock earlier last week by Abraham, got a thumbs-up Saturday from starting catcher Connor Wong, who served as a batter during the pitcher's live BP session. "As a catcher, I see a lot. But the perspective as a hitter is different because you get a real feel for the breaking pitches," Wong said. "Kutter brings so much to the table and it's getting better." The right-hander opened the 2023 season as part of the rotation, then moved to the bullpen before rejoining the starters in early June. Crawford had a 4.20 ERA (3.64 FIP) over 21 starts while limiting opponents to a .226 batting average and .679 OPS after re-entering the rotation.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Fans seven in no-decision

    Crawford came away with a no-decision in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Yankees, allowing one run on three hits and three walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out seven.

    While it wasn't the most efficient performance, as Crawford needed 93 pitches (57 strikes) to record 14 outs, he wasn't the reason the Red Sox went on to get swept in the twin bill. The right-hander has failed to last longer than five innings in any of his last four starts, stumbling to a 7.88 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 20:9 K:BB through 16 innings over that stretch, but Boston doesn't have any better rotation options to close out the campaign.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Allows one hit in win

    Crawford (6-6) earned the win Saturday, allowing one run on one hit and two walks over six innings against the Yankees while striking out five.

    Crawford didn't allow a hit until the bottom of the sixth when Giancarlo Stanton tagged him for a solo home run on a hanging four-seamer. That would be the only hit surrendered by the right-hander on the afternoon as the Red Sox backed him with plenty of run support to help him earn his sixth win of the season. Crawford has now allowed three earned runs or fewer in each of his last five starts, while Saturday marked just the fourth time this season in which he's hurled at least six innings.
