Red Sox Wrap: Roenis Elias Blows First Start In Boston In 8-4 Loss To Mariners

BOSTON — That certainly wasn’t what the Red Sox or Roenis Elias were hoping for in the left-hander’s first start in a Boston uniform. Elias was tagged for seven runs over four innings in the Red Sox’s matchup against the Seattle Mariners, his former team, at Fenway Park on Friday. And to make matters worse, Boston had trouble bringing runners to the plate in the 8-4 loss...

What Can the Red Sox Expect from Roenis Elias?

The Red Sox’s record hasn’t been great, but the last few weeks have been lovely in terms of pregame stress. Not needing a fifth starter is impossible over the grind of an 162-game season, of course, but some lucky scheduling breaks allowed that for the Red Sox over recent weeks. On Friday, that honeymoon period is over, and they’ll finally have to choose a replacement for Joe...

Red Sox Need Fifth Starter; Will Clay Buchholz Or Roenis Elias Win It?

The Boston Red Sox have benefited from their schedule lately. With the team struggling to find a consistent fifth starter that gives them a chance to win, they’ve stuck with a four man rotation in recent weeks due to convenient off days allowing a full five days of rest for their current rotation. Clay Buchholz was relegated to the bullpen after almost two months of poor performances...

Roenis Elias Staking Claim To Fifth Red Sox Starter Spot

(Getty Images)Suddenly, the best candidate to secure the fifth spot in the Red Sox rotation is the "other guy" in the Wade Miley trade—Roenis Elias. In four of his last five Pawtucket starts (including last night), the left-handed Elias has given up two runs or less while going at least seven innings. In that span, he has struck out 40 and walked only 8. On Friday, he hurled seven...

Seattle Mariners pull to within 1/2 game of Tigers

After a less than stellar home stand to close August, the Seattle Mariners started September with a bang. There was a lot to like in the Mariners taking two of three against the A’s in Oakland, a potential place they would have to play if they land the second Wild Card. With the wins, Seattle pulled to win a .5 game of the Tigers for that second Wild Card, and they stand 3.5 games...
