Red Sox's Christian Arroyo: Slots in at DH

Arroyo replaced an injured J.D. Martinez (back) as the designated hitter and went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 8-4 extra-inning win over the Mariners. Martinez was a late scratch and will get another 24 hours of rest with Monday's off day before Tuesday's series opener against the White Sox. "He's doing OK. Just a tight back," Red Sox manager Alex Cora told Ian Browne of MLB.com. "Give him today, give him tomorrow and let's see where he's at on Tuesday." It's uncertain if Arroyo will get the call in Chicago if Martinez is unavailable.

BOSTON -- Things have not gone as planned for Christian Arroyo so far this season. The Red Sox second-baseman-turned-part-time-outfielder has barely played, and when he has, he has not performed to his liking.

Red Sox's Christian Arroyo: Returns to lineup

Arroyo (calf) will start in right field and bat ninth Wednesday against the Angels, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. Arroyo is starting for the first time since experiencing left calf tightness coming out of Saturday's 2-1 loss to Baltimore. He had been available off the bench for both of Boston's last two games, but he went unused. Arroyo will be filling in right field for the lefty-hitting Jackie Bradley, who gets the day off with the Angels bringing southpaw Reid Detmers to the hill.

Red Sox's Christian Arroyo: Not starting Sunday

Arroyo (calf) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles. Following Saturday's 2-1 loss, Arroyo relayed that he was dealing with tightness in his left calf, but the extent of the injury isn't yet fully known. The issue is significant enough to send him to the bench Sunday, though Arroyo may have been in line to fill his typical utility role anyway with J.D. Martinez (adductor) returning from a three-game absence. Arroyo had filled in for Martinez as Boston's designated hitter the past two days, going 1-for-7 with a home run and two RBI between those starts.

Christian Arroyo breaks Boston Red Sox home run drought, gets redemption after Thursday error: ‘That’s the beauty of baseball’

BALTIMORE -- It finally happened. A Red Sox hitter hit a home run Friday night. Christian Arroyo’s two-run blast off Orioles starter Kyle Bradish in the second inning of Friday’s win was Boston’s first homer since last Friday when Rafael Devers launched a solo shot against the Rays. The shot snapped the Sox’ longest home run drought since April 2001 and gave the club an early 2-0 lead behind Rich Hill in an eventual 3-1 win over Baltimore.

Rich Hill, Tanner Houck dominate Orioles in 3-1 Red Sox win; Christian Arroyo breaks Boston’s homer-less streak

BALTIMORE -- Alex Cora had a plan heading into Friday’s game against the Orioles, and sticking to it led to one of Boston’s best pitching performances of the season. Rich Hill and Tanner Houck combined to shut out the Orioles for seven innings and Jake Diekman, Hansel Robles and Matt Strahm held on as the Red Sox took the opener of a three-game series, 3-1, at Camden Yards. Hill retired the first 12 batters he faced in four perfect innings then was relieved by Houck after allowing a leadoff hit in the fifth; Houck, making his return from the restricted list in a piggyback role, worked around two hits and three walks in three scoreless frames.
