Red Sox release Hansel Robles

BOSTON - The Boston Red Sox announced Saturday they have released right-handed relief pitcher Hansel Robles. The team had designated Robles for assignment following Tuesday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays, in which he gave up a run and walked two. Robles joined the Red Sox in 2021, posting a...

Red Sox's Hansel Robles: Could rejoin team in Anaheim

Robles (back spasms) will make a rehab appearance Tuesday and could rejoin the Red Sox Thursday in Anaheim, Sonja Chen of MLB.com reports. An initial report had Robles making two rehab appearances, but manager Alex Cora thinks the right-hander will need just one. "He'll throw his inning, see how it goes," Cora said, "and the hope is for him to join us [June 9]." Robles will throw an inning for Triple-A Worcester in Buffalo.

Red Sox's Hansel Robles: Two rehab outings expected

Robles (back spasms) will likely get two rehab appearances before rejoining the team, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports. Robles, who has been one of the more reliable arms in a shaky bullpen, was placed on the 15-day injured list, retroactive to May 25. Smith adds Robles is expected to return to the Red Sox during their series versus the Angels -- he's eligible to be activated from the IL on Thursday, assuming he doesn't suffer a setback.

Why did Boston Red Sox option Hirokazu Sawamura, put Hansel Robles on IL? Alex Cora explains

BOSTON -- The Red Sox reshuffled their bullpen mix a bit Saturday morning, optioning Hirokazu Sawamura to Triple-A Worcester and placing Hansel Robles (back spasms) on the 15-day injured list while recalling righties Ryan Brasier and Phillips Valdez from the WooSox. After the bullpen allowed 10 runs in a brutal loss to Baltimore on Friday, some sort of shakeup was needed.

Red Sox's Hansel Robles: Placed on 15-day injured list

Robles was placed on the 15-day injured list with back spasms Saturday, retroactive to May 25. Robles hasn't pitched in nearly a week, and his lack of appearances was apparently due to back spasms which will keep him sidelined until at least early June. The right-hander has converted two of five save chances this year while posting a 2.65 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in 17 innings over 16 appearances. Most of Boston's other late relievers have struggled recently, but John Schreiber, Matt Barnes and Matt Strahm will likely be in the mix for saves while Robles is unavailable.

Red Sox's Hansel Robles: Blows save chance

Robles allowed one earned run while allowing a hit and a walk to blow the save Saturday against the White Sox. Robles was called upon to protect a one-run lead in the ninth inning. He surrendered a leadoff walk and then a double to ultimately surrender the game-tying run. Robles has now failed to convert his last two save chances, which could mean the team looks towards Jake Diekman or another bullpen arm to fill the closer role moving forward.

Red Sox's Hansel Robles: Unable to close out Orioles

Robles allowed a run on two hits in two-thirds of an inning in Friday's 3-1 win over Baltimore. Robles was the reliever of choice to start the ninth inning with Boston up, 3-0, but he surrendered hits to the first two batters faced, including a Ryan Mountcastle home run. After getting a couple of right-handed batters out, Robles was replaced by lefty Matt Strahm to face lefty batters. After a dominant start to the season, Robles has hit a bump with four runs (one earned) allowed on five hits and two home runs over 3.1 innings.

Red Sox's Hansel Robles: Unlucky in blown save

Robles (1-1) allowed three unearned runs on one hit while striking out two over two-thirds of an inning and was tagged with a blown save/loss in Saturday's 3-2 extra-inning loss to Tampa Bay. Robles was the pitcher of choice after Boston grabbed a 2-0 lead in the top of the...

Red Sox's Hansel Robles: Works his magic again

Robles did not allow a runner and struck out one over a scoreless 1.1 innings in Friday's 4-3 win over Tampa Bay. Robles got the final out of the seventh inning then dispatched the Rays in order in the eighth to preserve Boston's lead heading into the ninth. It was yet another dominant performance for Robles, who hasn't allowed a baserunner over his last 4.1 innings and is unscored upon over 6.1 IP. Despite entering in the seventh inning, the right-hander remains in the mix to save games.

Red Sox's Hansel Robles: Gets win in dominant effort

Robles (1-0) earned the win Tuesday when he struck out two over 1.2 scoreless relief innings in a 2-1 victory over the Blue Jays. Robles, who was a late addition to spring training due to visa issues and nearly left off the Opening Day roster, has been dominant early on for Boston. He hasn't allowed a run over five innings (four appearances), which extends a streak going back to last season. The 31-year-old reliever has not allowed an earned run in his last 19 regular-season outings (18.2 innings), during which he's posted a 0.70 WHIP, a .098 batting average against, 22 strikeouts and seven walks. The backend of Boston's bullpen was unsettled to start the season, but it looks like Robles and Jake Diekman (picked up his fourth hold Tuesday) will be featured prominently in the last third of games.

Hansel Robles Making a Legitimate Case to Be Red Sox Closer

Tomase: Robles making legitimate case to be Red Sox closer originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston. The 2015 Red Sox memorably sported t-shirts declaring, "He's the Ace," for a rotation that in fact featured zero of them. The 2022 Red Sox should find that silk screener and alter one word,...

Red Sox's Hansel Robles: Gets game into extras

Robles allowed a hit and an intentional walk while striking out two over one inning in Friday's 6-5 extra-innings loss to the Yankees. Robles entered the game in the ninth inning of a 4-4 game and worked out of a two-on jam by striking out Giancarlo Stanton on three pitches. The pitcher was a late arrival to camp and made just two Grapefruit League appearances before being added to the Opening Day roster. There had been some discussion about leaving him off the roster for a short period of time, but the Red Sox determined he was ready to pitch and, apparently, deserved usage in key situations. Boston manager Alex Cora has not named a closer, but it's clear Robles will be entrusted with important innings.

The Red Sox have finalized their Opening Day roster for the start of the 2022 season, and they made some interesting moves in order to do so.
