Boston Red Sox Player News: All Positions

News: Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored Tuesday against the Blue Jays.
Impact: Bogaerts took Jacob Waguespack deep in the first inning for his 21st home run of the season. The effort also marked his fourth consecutive multi-hit game and extended his hitting streak to eight contests. Bogaerts is in the midst of a career-best season, hitting .312/.399/.575 across 411 plate appearances.
News: Betts went 3-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored Tuesday against the Blue Jays.
Impact: Betts delivered a two-RBI single in the fifth inning and later came around to score in the same frame, accounting for much of the team's offense Tuesday. Though he hasn't homered since June 24, Betts has managed six multi-hit efforts in 11 July starts, raising his batting average from .265 to .281. Betts is currently getting on base at a .396 clip while slugging .473 across 442 plate appearances for the season.
News: Cashner (9-4) allowed six runs (five earned) on eight hits and two walks while striking out two across five innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Blue Jays.
Impact: Cashner was shaky to begin the game, allowing multiple hits in each of his first three innings. He then settled down until the sixth frame when he allowed his second home run of the contest, which knocked him out of the game. His skills weren't much better than his results as he began just 13 of the 25 batters he faced with a strike and generated only five swinging strikes. Cashner will look to bounce back in his second start with his new team, drawing a start at Baltimore -- his former club -- on Sunday.
News: Hernandez was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
Impact: Hernandez struggled during his last stint with the Red Sox in June, allowing three runs while striking out seven over three innings of work, but he'll get another shot in the big leagues out of the bullpen. Ryan Brasier was demoted to Triple-A in a corresponding move.
News: Brasier was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
Impact: Brasier hasn't been able to get the job done for the Red Sox this season out of the bullpen, accruing a 4.24 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 36 punchouts over 40.1 innings. He's also blown three save opportunities over that stretch. Darwinzon Hernandez was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.
News: Benintendi went 2-for-5 with a double, three RBI and a run scored in Monday's 10-8 win over the Blue Jays.
Impact: Benintendi has spent most of the season up in the order, batting leadoff or second, but was moved to the middle of the order in late June, hitting fourth, fifth or sixth. That could lead to more RBI for the 25-year-old outfielder. He's driven in six over the last nine games. For the season, Benintendi's knocked in 42 runs, well off the pace he established in 2017 (90 RBI) and 2018 (87).
News: Devers went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Monday's 10-8 win over the Blue Jays.
Impact: The All-Star break did little to cool off Devers' hot bat. The third baseman, who deserved to be an All-Star but wasn't, is 6-for-16 with a home run, two doubles, four RBI and three runs scored in the four games since the break.
