  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Takes loss to O's

    Martin (1-1) was charged with Wednesday's loss to Baltimore. He allowed four runs (three earned) on two hits and one walk while striking out two over one inning.

    Martin was one of two relievers that combined to cough up a 5-0 lead during the sixth and seventh innings. He also threw two wild pitches and gave up a three-run home run. Martin, who was Boston's best bullpen arm in 2023, has been tagged with blown saves in each of his last two outings.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Earns first hold

    Martin allowed one hit and struck out two over a scoreless eighth inning in Thursday's 6-4 win over Seattle on Opening Day.

    Martin earned his first hold as the bridge to closer Kenley Jansen, who recorded the save. Martin threw just 2.1 innings during spring training due to a groin issue, but the right-hander was ready and available for the beginning of the regular season. He'll be the primary setup option for Boston in 2024.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Makes final spring appearance

    Martin wrestled with a groin injury and made just his third appearance of spring training, with all coming within the last week. The Red Sox are comfortable with him being ready for Opening Day despite having worked just 2.1 innings, per Drew Davison of MLB.com. He's expected to be the bridge to closer Kenley Jansen.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Shaky in first spring appearance.

    Martin (groin) allowed two hits and an unearned run while recording just one out in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    Martin has been bothered by the groin injury since March 9, with Thursday marking his spring training debut. He was understandably rusty, so his results aren't of particular concern yet. Martin is expected to be ready for Opening Day, and he projects to serve as Boston's top setup man.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: In line for Grapefruit League debut

    Martin (groin) will make his Grapefruit League debut Thursday against the Orioles, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    Martin has been working his way back from an early-March groin injury. While this will be his first official spring appearance, he began facing hitters a week ago and recently appeared in a minor-league game. Martin is expected to be ready for Opening Day, barring setbacks.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Impressive velocity in MiLB game

    Martin (groin) was throwing 95-to-96 mph during a minor-league game Tuesday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    That's right around what he averaged with his four-seamer last season, which seems like a good sign as he works his way back from a groin injury. Martin is expected to pitch in another game Friday, although it's not clear whether that will be against minor- league hitters or in a Grapefruit League contest. He's tracking toward being ready for Opening Day, and it's possible he'll be needed to close if Kenley Jansen (back) isn't ready.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Throws live BP

    Martin (groin) completed a live batting practice session Saturday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

    Martin's attempt at a live BP session a week ago ended after two pitches due to groin tightness. The righty setup reliever completed this session and is ready for the next step Tuesday, which will either be another batting practice session or his Grapefruit League debut. Martin estimates he'll need four appearances to be ready for the regular season.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Slated for live BP on Saturday

    Martin (groin) will throw a live batting practice session Saturday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

    Martin had to have a live BP session scratched last weekend because of right groin tightness, but he's been playing catch and is expected to be fine. The tall right-hander will be a setup man ahead of closer Kenley Jansen again this season.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Expected to be ready for opener

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Monday that Martin (groin) has time to be ready for Opening Day, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    Right groin tightness prevented Martin from throwing a scheduled live bullpen session Saturday, but he was able to play catch Sunday and looks to be in line to do so again Monday. It's not clear when he might be ready for a Grapefruit League appearance, but this seems to be something Martin should be able to recover from soon.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Downplays injury

    Martin said his groin tightness is a minor concern and that he's playing catch Sunday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

    The veteran right-hander was unable to throw his scheduled live bullpen session Saturday due to right groin tightness, but it's apparently not a serious issue. Assuming there's no further problems, Martin should be back on a mound within the next couple days.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Dealing with groin tightness

    Martin, who was scheduled to throw a live bullpen session Saturday, left warmups due to right groin tightness, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

    Martin walked to the clubhouse after throwing two warmup pitches Saturday, and he will not participate in his scheduled bullpen session. He appeared in 55 games for the Red Sox last season and posted a 1.05 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 46:8 K:BB over 51.1 innings.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Lands on injured list

    The Red Sox placed Martin on the 15-day injured list Thursday with a viral infection, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Martin's illness will officially put an early end to his season. The 37-year-old righty was dominant out of the bullpen for Boston in 2023, charting a minuscule 1.05 ERA and 1.03 WHIP through 51.1 innings while collecting 23 holds and three saves. Nick Robertson was recalled from Triple-A Worcester to fill Martin's roster spot for the final series of the year.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Nails down third save

    Martin worked a perfect ninth inning Friday to record his third save of the season in a 3-2 win over the White Sox.

    Two of those saves have come in the last week as Martin fills in for Kenley Jansen (COVID-19) as Boston's closer. The assignment is well-deserved -- Martin hasn't been tagged for a run since late July, reeling off 20 straight scoreless appearances and adding a win and seven holds to his ledger along the way. On the season, the veteran righty sports a scintillating 1.05 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 46:8 K:BB through 51.1 innings.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Grabs second save

    Martin picked up the save in Monday's 4-2 win over the Rangers. He allowed one hit while striking out two in a scoreless inning.

    With Kenley Jansen on the COVID list, Martin was tasked with protecting a two-run lead in the ninth inning Monday. The right-hander worked around a one-out hit to earn his second save of the season, his first since June 11. While Martin is unlikely to see many save chances with Jansen due to return this week, the former has had an excellent year as a late-innings option for Boston while posting a 1.07 ERA with a 1.05 WHIP and 46:8 K:BB across 50.1 innings.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Notches first save

    Martin struck out two batters in a perfect 10th inning and earned a save over the Yankees on Sunday.

    Martin fired 11 of 13 pitches for strikes to close out the 3-2 win to help the Red Sox take the series against the Yankees. He picked up his first save of the year and lowered his ERA to 2.29 with a 16:2 K:BB and 12 holds through 20 appearances. It was Martin's first save chance since blowing an opportunity June 1. Kenley Jansen picked up the win after working a scoreless ninth frame.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Picks up hold

    Martin retired all three batters he faced in the eighth inning for a hold in Saturday's 4-2 win over San Diego.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Makes quick work for hold

    Martin retired all three batters faced in the eighth inning of Friday's 5-3 win over Philadelphia.

    Martin had a second consecutive clean outing, setting the Phillies down in order on five pitches to record his sixth hold. Kenley Jansen cleaned up in the ninth for the save. He's looked like an effective bridge to Jansen since his return from the injured list, throwing three scoreless innings over three appearances and recording holds in all three.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Back from injured list

    Martin (shoulder) was activated from the 15-day injured list Sunday, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    Martin landed on the shelf with shoulder inflammation April 13, but he'll rejoin the Red Sox after one rehab outing with Triple-A Worcester. The 36-year-old has three holds with a 2.57 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 2:1 K:BB across seven innings this season, and he could be in the mix with John Schreiber for saves in the immediate future with Kenley Jansen unavailable Sunday and day-to-day with back tightness.

  • Red Sox's Chris Martin: Could be activated Sunday

    Martin (shoulder) could be activated Sunday if he checks out OK after Friday's rehab outing, Christoper Smith of MassLive.com reports.

    Boston manager Alex Cora described it as a "good chance" Martin will be available for the Red Sox this weekend. Martin threw an inning for Triple-A Worcester on Friday, allowing a pair of unearned runs and two hits. Presumably, the Red Sox will want to see how Martin responds Saturday before making a decision on activating him.
