  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: In Monday's lineup

    Valdez (thumb) will start at second base and bat seventh in Monday's game versus the Guardians.

    Valdez didn't play Sunday after exiting Saturday's contest with a bruised left thumb, although he might not have been in the lineup, anyway, since they were facing a lefty. Either way, he's back in there Monday against Xzavion Curry and the Guardians.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Suffers bruised thumb

    Valdez left Saturday's game against the Angels due to a left thumb contusion, Gabrielle Starr of the Boston Herald reports.

    Miguel Sano fell on Valdez's left hand while attempting to tag him out during the sixth inning, but Valdez appears to have escaped the incident with minimal damage. It's still possible the Red Sox hold him out of the lineup for a few days in order to allow his thumb to properly heal, though an IL stint seems unlikely at this point.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Retreats to bench Sunday

    Valdez (thumb) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    After exiting Saturday's 7-2 win early with a bruised left thumb, Valdez will hit the bench for the series finale. It's unclear whether the injury is actually keeping him out of the lineup, as the lefty-hitting Valdez likely would have been on the bench anyway with a southpaw (Tyler Anderson) on the mound for the Halos. In any case, Pablo Reyes will fill in for Valdez at the keystone.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Idle against lefty

    Valdez isn't in Boston's lineup for Friday's game against the Angels, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Valdez will take a seat as lefty Reid Detmers prepares to start Friday's series opener for the Halos. Pablo Reyes will man second base instead while Bobby Dalbec covers the hot corner.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Exits with injury

    Valdez was removed from Saturday's game against the Angels with an apparent arm injury, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Valdez tripped while attempting to steal second base, causing Miguel Sano to also fall and land on Valdez's left arm/wrist while attempting to run him down. The 25-year-old second baseman will presumably undergo imaging on his left arm, and the Red Sox should have more information on his status in the near future.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: On bench against southpaw

    Valdez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

    The lefty-hitting Valdez is on the bench Wednesday while southpaw Cole Irvin takes the hill for Baltimore. The righty-hitting Pablo Reyes will step in for Valdez on Wednesday, and the two could continue to form a platoon at the keystone until Vaughn Grissom (groin) is ready to return from the injured list.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Homers in win

    Valdez went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in Sunday's win over Seattle.

    Valdez had gone 0-for-6 over the past two games before launching a three-run shot off Bryce Miller in the fourth inning. Through four appearances this season, Valdez is 2-for-12 with one extra-base knock. He appears to be getting fairly regular playing time, at least while Vaughn Grissom (hamstring) is out.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Playing 2B in opener

    Valdez is starting at second base and batting eighth for Thursday's season opener against the Mariners, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    With Vaughn Grissom (groin) on the 10-day IL, Valdez will get first crack at second base Thursday ahead of Pablo Reyes. In spring training, Valdez slashed .204/.264/.531 with four home runs and seven RBI over 49 at-bats.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Part of platoon at second base

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Monday that Valdez will be part of a platoon at second base to open the season, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    While Cora didn't specify which players would platoon at the keystone, he was presumably referring to Valdez as the long side of the platoon and Pablo Reyes as the short side. It will be a short-term arrangement, as Vaughn Grissom (groin) is due back in mid-to-late April and will be in line to take over everyday duties at the position at that time.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Next up at second base

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Saturday that Valdez is next in line at second base due to Vaughn Grissom (groin) being sidelined, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    The team is not yet ruling Grissom out for Opening Day, but it looks like a longshot that he'll be ready. A replacement from outside the organization doesn't appear to be in the cards, which leaves Valdez at the top of the pecking order and Pablo Reyes also in the mix. Valdez, 25, struggles with the glove but has some offensive promise, having slashed .266/.311/.453 with six homers and five steals over 149 plate appearances with Boston in 2023.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Sitting against lefty

    Valdez is not in the lineup Friday against the Orioles.

    Pablo Reyes will play second base and bat seventh versus the O's and left-hander John Means. Valdez has gone 1-for-12 with five strikeouts against lefties this season.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Three hits, homer in loss

    Valdez went 3-for-4 with a double, a home run and four RBI in Tuesday's 9-7 loss against the Rays.

    Valdez got the Red Sox on the board in the fifth inning with a three-run blast off Zach Eflin, his sixth homer of the year, before driving in a fourth run with a double in the eighth. Valdez has been on fire since he was recalled from Triple-A on Friday, going 6-for-10 with four extra-base hits in three games. Overall, the rookie infielder is batting .273 with a .793 OPS, 19 RBI, 15 runs scored and four stolen bases as he looks to work his way into Boston's 2024 plans.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Starts at second base

    Valdez started at second base and went 2-for-4 in Saturday's 1-0 loss to the White Sox.

    Valdez, who was called up Friday after the Red Sox placed Luis Urias (calf) on the injured list, is expected to share second base with prospect Ceddanne Rafaela over the final week of the season. Rafaela will also see time in center field or shortstop.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Returns to majors

    The Red Sox recalled Valdez from Triple-A Worcester on Friday.

    With Luis Urias (calf) on the injured list, Valdez will come up to give the Red Sox additional depth in the infield. Valdez has slashed .246/.294/.415 across 126 plate appearances in the majors this season.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Red Sox optioned Valdez to Triple-A Worcester on Tuesday, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    With Pablo Reyes (elbow) returning from the injured list Tuesday, Valdez will be pushed off the active roster and sent back to the minors. Valdez went 7-for-21 with a homer, four RBI and five runs scored since being recalled Sept. 1, and the Red Sox could still bring him back as a depth option before the end of the season.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Homers Tuesday

    Valdez went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and a second run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Rays.

    Valdez got Boston on the board in the third inning with a two-run blast off Zach Eflin, his fifth homer of the year and first in the big leagues since May 31. The 24-year-old Valdez has started three of four games at second base since he was recalled from Triple-A when rosters expanded, going 4-for-10 with four RBI in that span. He should continue to see regular work with Pablo Reyes (elbow) on the IL.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Gets another look at second base

    Valdez will start at second base and bat ninth in Tuesday's game against the Rays, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Set to make his third start at the keystone in four games, the lefty-hitting Valdez looks as though he could occupy the strong side of a platoon at the position with the righty-hitting Luis Urias while Pablo Reyes (elbow) is on the injured list. Valdez went 2-for-7 with a walk, two RBI and a run between his last two starts.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Recalled from Triple-A

    Boston recalled Valdez from Triple-A Worcester on Friday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    Valdez got an extended run with the Red Sox earlier this season but batted just .234 with a .684 OPS across 101 plate appearances. The 24-year-old has put up impressive power numbers in the minors and could perhaps platoon at second base with Luis Urias.

  • Red Sox's Enmanuel Valdez: Healthy again at Triple-A

    Valdez (hamstring) is slashing .150/.271/.325 with two home runs, seven RBI and seven runs in 11 games since being reinstated from Triple-A Worcester's 7-day injured list Aug. 6.

    Valdez missed about three weeks of action on account of a left hamstring strain. The 24-year-old received a look as Boston's everyday second baseman earlier in 2023, but since he's struggled to get going since returning to the lineup at Worcester and because Pablo Reyes and Luis Urias are both excelling as part of a timeshare at the keystone at the big-league level, Valdez likely won't be in store for a promotion in the near future.
