Red Sox reinstate Michael Wacha from IL to start vs. Mariners

The Boston Red Sox improved to 16-22 overall on the season via Thursday's 12-6 win over the Seattle Mariners at Fenway Park and shared some good news with fans before Friday's encounter with those same Mariners.

Red Sox Vs. Mariners Lineups: Michael Wacha Returns As Boston’s Starting Pitcher

If Michael Wacha returns to form instantly, the Boston Red Sox will have a good chance of sustaining their momentum against the Seattle Mariners. The Red Sox reinstated the pitcher from the injured list Friday, and he’ll take the mound at Fenway Park in the second contest of Boston’s four-game series with Seattle. Wacha is 3-0 with a 1.38 ERA in five starts this season, but he hasn’t pitched since May 3 and had been on the IL since May 8.

Red Sox News: Michael Wacha returns to the rotation at the perfect time

Red Sox rotation gets a big boost with Michael Wacha’s return. The Red Sox are riding the wave of two big wins in a row and last night saw a collection of the bullpen and offense work like a well-oiled machine. Through the early part of the season, Michael Wacha has been one of the best starters in the rotation but some irritation on his left side has had him on the shelf since the beginning of the month. With the schedule being very favorable to Boston for the foreseeable future getting the righty back on the mound is perfect timing.

Red Sox's Michael Wacha: Coughs up two runs

Wacha allowed two runs on four hits and three walks over 4.2 innings in Friday's win over Seattle. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision. Wacha escaped a jam in the first inning and kept Seattle scoreless until the fifth when Abraham Toro took him deep for a two-run shot. The 30-year-old righty made his first start since May 3 after a stint on the injured list due to intercostal irritation. He's now sporting a 1.76 ERA with a 22:14 K:BB through 30.2 innings. Wacha is projected to face the White Sox on the road next week.

Red Sox's Michael Wacha: Activated for Friday's start

Wacha (side) was activated from the 15-day injured list ahead of his start against the Mariners on Friday. The 30-year-old spent the 15-day minimum on the shelf after going down with left intercostal irritation, and the brevity of his absence will allow him to return without a minor-league rehab assignment. Wacha threw a two-inning simulated game earlier this week but hasn't seen game action since May 3, so he could have some minor workload limitations in his first start back. The right-hander is off to a strong start in 2022 with a 1.38 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 19:11 K:BB through five starts.

Daily Red Sox Links: Nathan Eovaldi, Michael Wacha, Brayan Bello

Nathan Eovaldi had an absolutely brutal night on Tuesday, tying a major-league record allowing five homers in a single inning, an extreme version of issues he’s been having all season. Dave Bush doesn’t think it’s anything to do with tipping pitches, though. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe) The...
