Not a Dalmatian in sight

Welcome back John Schreiber!! 2022’s bullpen glue has been on the IL since mid-May and he sure returns at the right time. With the majority of their starting rotation-caliber (we’re generous here) pitchers on the IL the Red Sox have been leaning heavily on the ‘pen. And it’s kinda worked. But arms tire. So here’s Schreiber to make a start and likely be followed by Nick Pivetta from the bullpen to try and hold off the best team in baseball: the Atlanta Braves.

Trade alert!

Charlie Morton, who the Sox know well from his time with the Tampa Bay Rays, is back with the Braves for his age-39 season. He carries a 3.36 ERA / 3.69 FIP and is basically in line with his career numbers. He’s striking out a few less and walking a few more but he’s just…still good. He’s faced Boston 14 times and has an ERA of 3.95 is 80 innings.
