Returns from Triple-A
PBoston Red Sox
September 1, 2019
The Red Sox recalled Velazquez from Triple-A Pawtucket ahead of Sunday's 4-3 win over the Angels. He tossed a scoreless seventh inning and secured his first hold of the season in the outing.
ANALYSIS
Velazquez was one of six pitchers to take the hill for Boston in what amounted to a bullpen day with starter David Price (wrist) pulled after 45 pitches in his return from the injured list. Entering play Sunday, Velazquez owned a 5.81 ERA and 1.44 WHIP over 26 outings (eight starts) with the big club, so one solid relief appearance won't be enough for him to earn a prominent role in the bullpen.
