Not on ALDS roster

October 3, 2018
Velazquez will be left off the Red Sox's 25-man roster for the ALDS, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
In 47 appearances (eight starts) for Boston this year, Velazquez posted a 3.18 ERA and 1.45 WHIP with a 5.6 K/9 across 85 innings. His below-average strikeout stuff combined with off days that will keep the rest of the staff fresh likely led to this decision by manager Alex Cora.
