Red Sox's Jay Groome: Throws five scoreless

Groome allowed one hit and struck out four over five scoreless innings for Double-A Portland on Wednesday. Groome picked up where he left off for Portland at the end of 2021, as he went 2-0 with a 2.30 ERA, .211 batting-average against and 26 strikeouts over 15.2 innings (three starts) for the Sea Dogs last September. His career since being selected in the first round (12th overall) of the 2016 draft has been notable mostly for injuries, including Tommy John surgery in 2018. The left-hander threw a career-high 97.1 innings last season and is experiencing his longest stretch of health since joining professional ball. There's still time for the 23-year-old, who stands at 6-foot-6 and 262 pounds, to reclaim the promise he once had.
