Daily Red Sox Links: Xander Bogaerts, Ryan Brasier, Connor Seabold

One of the big questions and storylines hanging over the Red Sox this season is what happens with Xander Bogaerts, who has an opt-out at the end of this season that he will all but certainly use. He’s just trying to stay in the moment. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe)

Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Suffers loss Sunday

Brasier (0-2) was tagged with Sunday's loss, allowing four runs on three hits and one walk while striking out three over one inning against the Rangers. Brasier was victimized by Adolis Garcia and Kole Calhoun, who back-to-back home runs off the righty reliever. He's pitched well out of the bullpen until this last week. Brasier's 2.45 ERA blew up 6.57 after giving up six runs on three home runs in his last two appearances. Brasier's allowed four jacks over 12.1 innings (2.9 HR/9).

Boston Red Sox tally just 4 hits, Javier Báez hits game-winning homer off Ryan Brasier as Tigers take series opener, 3-1

DETROIT -- Any positive momentum the Red Sox bullpen gained during a successful opening weekend in New York was erased by one Javier Báez swing Monday night. Báez crushed a high Ryan Brasier fastball for a two-run, game-winning home run in the eighth inning as the Tigers took the opener of a three-game series, 3-1. Boston had just four hits and fell to 1-3 on the young season.

Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Serves up home run

Brasier allowed one run on two hits over one-third of an inning in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Tigers. Brasier didn't get tagged with the loss -- that went to Austin Davis -- but he gave up the game-deciding, two-run home run to Javier Baez. The Red Sox have had nothing but tight games thus far, and Brasier has worked three high-leverage situations, all in which he inherited runners. The Baez homer was the first run that's been charged to him, but the reliever has allowed three of six inherited runners to cross the plate. While the Red Sox work without a closer, Brasier is seen as a key piece that could pick up saves.

One Big Question: Can Ryan Brasier keep his fastball up?

Welcome to the annual Over The Monster One Big Question season preview series. Over the next 40(ish) days, we will be running through every player on the Boston Red Sox 40-man roster and identifying a key question for them pertaining to the coming season. We will go through the roster in alphabetical order. For the most part, these will run Monday through Friday every week running up to the week before Opening Day, at least as things are scheduled right now. Obviously, the lockout may change the timing of the season, and it also means we will likely see more additions of new faces. If need be, we will add some weekend posts to fit any and all additions to the 40-man before Opening Day. You can catch up with every post by following this link. With that, today we cover Ryan Brasier.
