  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Cleared to face hitters

    Crawford (shoulder) threw a two-inning simulated game Wednesday, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    Though the Red Sox have already ruled out Crawford from returning in 2022, he looks like he'll be in store for a normal offseason now that he's facing hitters. The 26-year-old righty should get the opportunity to compete for a rotation spot next spring after turning in a 5.47 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 77:29 K:BB across 77.1 innings during his rookie campaign.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Done for season

    Crawford (shoulder) will not return this season, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    This shoulder impingement will wipe out his entire month of September, but Crawford is remaining around the team. He will serve as rotation and/or bullpen depth in 2023 after logging a 5.47 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 77 strikeouts in 77.1 innings over 21 appearances in the majors as a rookie.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Progressing slower than expected

    Manager Alex Cora said Friday that Crawford (shoulder) has made slower progress than expected in his recovery, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    Crawford has been sidelined with a right shoulder impingement since the beginning of September and hasn't yet thrown a bullpen. In spite of his slow progress so far, the Red Sox remain hopeful that the 26-year-old will be cleared to return prior to the end of the regular season.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: On IL with shoulder impingement

    Crawford was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday, retroactive to Sept. 1, with a right shoulder impingement.

    The 26-year-old had already been scratched from Sunday's scheduled start against the Rangers due to the injury, and he'll end up missing some additional time. Crawford's shoulder injury doesn't seem to be overly severe, as manager Alex Cora said he's hopeful that the right-hander will require a minimum-length stay on the IL, per Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican. Josh Winckowski was recalled from Triple-A Worcester in a corresponding move and will start Sunday in Crawford's stead.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Scratched with shoulder injury

    Crawford was scratched from his scheduled start Sunday against the Rangers with a shoulder injury, Ian Browne of reports.

    Crawford reportedly felt sore while playing catch Saturday. It's unclear if he'll require a trip to the injured list or merely have his next outing pushed back. The Red Sox have yet to announce who will make a spot start in his absence.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Allows heavy traffic in loss

    Crawford (3-6) took the loss Tuesday, allowing five runs on four hits and four walks over 4.1 innings in a 10-5 loss against Minnesota. He struck out five.

    The rookie never found his rhythm Tuesday as he allowed nine runners to reach base in 4.1 innings. This was the fourth time Crawford has allowed four or more walks in a single game this season, which is concerning. However, entering Tuesday, he had a reasonable 3.1 BB/9 and 4.17 xFIP, indicating that there may be room for improvement.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Allows 10 hits

    Crawford did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing four runs on 10 hits and two walks over 4.2 innings against the Blue Jays. He struck out five.

    Crawford surrendered a two-run double to Bo Bichette in the first inning and a two-run single to Vladimir Guerrero in the fourth. The righty has been poor lately with a 9.31 ERA and 1.86 WHIP over 19.1 innings in his last four starts, issuing two or more walks in three of them.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Hammered in loss

    Crawford (3-5) allowed nine runs on 11 hits over 3.2 innings Friday, striking out three without walking a batter and taking the loss against Baltimore.

    Crawford gave up three runs in each of the second, third and fourth frames, including a trio of home runs. He had been taken deep just three times over his previous six outings. Friday's poor start launched his season ERA to 5.14 through 68.1 frames. Crawford has given up 16 runs through 14.2 innings over his last three appearances. He's expected to start at home against the Blue Jays next week.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Effective over six in no-decision

    Crawford gave up two earned runs on two hits and four walks while striking out five over six innings in a 3-2 loss to the Yankees on Saturday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Crawford struggled with his control, issuing four free passes, but he allowed only six baserunners in total on 94 pitches over six innings of work. The damage came on a two-run home run off the bat of Isiah Kiner-Falefa. It was a good bounce-back performance for Crawford against a tough lineup after he was torched for five runs his last time out against the Royals. The 26-year-old rookie has a K:BB of 65:23 in 64.2 innings pitched and is tentatively expected to make his next start at Baltimore.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Tagged with five runs

    Crawford (3-4) yielded five runs on five hits and two walks over five innings Friday, striking out four and taking a loss against the Royals.

    Crawford coughed up two runs in the third inning, but most of the damage came on MJ Melendez's three-run shot in the fifth. The 26-year-old rookie snapped his six-start streak of fewer than four runs allowed and saw his season ERA climb to 4.30. Since the start of July, Crawford owns a 3.23 ERA through 39 frames. He's expected to face the Yankees at home next week.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Continues excellent stretch

    Crawford (3-3) earned the win during Tuesday's 2-1 victory over Houston, allowing one run on seven hits and one walk with six strikeouts in six innings.

    Crawford surrendered his lone run on consecutive hits to lead off the bottom of the first inning, but he was able to quiet Houston's potent offense thereafter, retiring seven straight Astros at one point. The 26-year-old induced a solid 12 swinging strikes on 94 pitches en route to striking out six for the fourth time in his last six games. During that span, Crawford has pitched to a 2.38 ERA across 34 innings while facing top-tier competition in the Yankees, Blue Jays, Guardians and Rays twice. He carries a 4.15 ERA and 1.22 WHIP into his next start, tentatively scheduled for Sunday against Kansas City.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Effective again in no-decision

    Crawford pitched 5.2 innings against Cleveland on Thursday, allowing one run on three hits and no walks while striking out two batters. He did not factor in the decision.

    The rookie gave up a solo homer to Jose Ramirez in the fourth inning, but that was the only run the Guardians could muster against him. Crawford wasn't overpowering -- he picked up only two punchouts and induced only eight swings-and-misses -- but he was efficient in throwing 49 of 69 pitches for strikes. The right-hander fell one out shy of his third straight quality start, but it was nonetheless another effective outing that should strengthen his case to remain in the rotation even when Boston's staff returns to full health. Over his past five starts, Crawford has posted a 2.57 ERA and 26:4 K:BB across 28 innings.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Goes six innings in loss

    Crawford (2-3) took the loss against Toronto on Saturday, allowing three runs on five hits while striking out four and walking one over six innings.

    Crawford threw 52 of 77 pitches for strikes in Saturday's contest. He pitched well enough to win but lacked run support from his offense. The righty did pick up a quality start, his second in a row. Crawford has pitched well in July after assuming a starting role. He has a 24:4 K:BB and a 2.82 ERA this month despite facing the Rays twice and the Yankees and Blue Jays once apiece. He will take a 4.50 ERA into his next appearance.

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

    Crawford pitched six-plus innings against Tampa Bay on Thursday, allowing three runs on six hits and no walks while striking out six batters. He did not factor in the decision.

    Crawford was splendid through six frames, holding the Rays scoreless and giving up just three hits. He was asked to come back out for the seventh, and things took a turn for the worse when the first three batters he faced got a hit against him. All three came around to score, cutting Crawford off from a chance for a victory. Despite the disappointing finish, it was another impressive outing by the rookie, who completed six innings for the first time as a major-leaguer and notched his first career quality start. Crawford has given up just four runs and struck out 20 batters over 16.1 frames across his past three appearances. However, Nathan Eovaldi (back/hip) is slated to return from the injured list this weekend, and Rich Hill (knee) and Michael Wacha (shoulder) could be back soon after the All-Star break, so Crawford may not be keeping his spot in the rotation.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Extended outing on tap

    Crawford is scheduled to either start or serve as a bulk reliever in Thursday's series finale with the Rays in Tampa Bay, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The Red Sox intend to wait until Friday's series opener with the Yankees to bring Nathan Eovaldi (back/hip) back from the 15-day injured list, so Crawford will receive one more turn through the rotation as a temporary fifth starter. Crawford impressed in his start last weekend against the Yankees, covering five innings and striking out six while allowing one earned run on four hits and two walks in a no-decision.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Impressive over five innings

    Crawford pitched five innings against the Yankees on Saturday, allowing one run on four hits and two walks while striking out six. He did not factor in the decision.

    Crawford did a good job of taming the potent Yankees offense, holding New York scoreless until Aaron Hicks launched a solo shot against him in the fifth inning. That was the only extra-base hit the right-hander allowed in the contest, and he also racked up six strikeouts. Crawford is making a case for sticking with the big club for the long haul with his past two appearances. In those outings, he's compiled 10.1 innings during which he's given up only one run while posting a 14:3 K:BB.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Starting Saturday

    Crawford will start Saturday's game against the Yankees, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    Crawford served as a bulk reliever Monday against Tampa Bay and struck out eight in 5.1 scoreless innings. As Boston's rotation continues to deal with injuries, the right-hander will make his third major-league start of the season Saturday.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Fans eight in victory

    Crawford yielded two hits and a walk over 5.1 shutout frames Monday, striking out eight and earning a win over Tampa Bay.

    Crawford took the mound in the third inning after Austin Davis opened with a pair of scoreless frames. The 26-year-old rookie allowed just one Ray to reach scoring position and never faced much of a threat in the dominant outing. In two games against the Rays this season, he's thrown 8.1 scoreless innings with 13 punchouts. Crawford owns a 5.04 ERA with a 32:13 K:BB through 25 innings this season.

  • Red Sox's Kutter Crawford: Recalled by Boston

    Crawford was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on Monday.

    The Red Sox are planning for a bullpen game Monday against the Rays after Michael Wacha (arm) was scratched from his scheduled start, and Crawford is a strong candidate to serve as a bulk reliever behind opener Austin Davis. Over 10 appearances (two starts) in the majors this year, Crawford has posted a 6.41 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in 19.2 innings.
