Rafael Devers left Saturday’s win early with a hamstring issue, and it looks likely that it’ll put him on the disabled list. (Michael Silverman; Boston Herald)

Nate Eovaldi has taken his game to a new level this year, and that is largely because of a new pitch in his arsenal. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic) ($$)

J.D. Martinez has been a force with the Red Sox, and he has an opt-out after every season besides this one. That said, he won’t rework that deal until after the season. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

Among the many amazing things about this Red Sox team is their ability to win every game they should, which is much easier said than done. (Evan Drellich; NBC Sports Boston)

Most everyone acknowledges that the bullpen could be a little sharper down the stretch, and one in-house key to that is getting Joe Kelly back on track. (Julian Benbow; Boston Globe)

Speaking of getting back on track, last weekend the Red Sox made a mechanical tweak with Tyler Thornburg and the right has retired ten straight since then. (Christopher Smith; Masslive)
