Player Outlook
Greg Weissert has yet to break through in high-leverage at the big league level, but he may be in line for more late-game opportunities after an offseason trade from the Yankees to the Red Sox. The 29-year-old has racked up 51 saves in the minors since 2016, but his strikeout prowess has yet to translate in the majors with a near league average strikeout rate through 31.1 career innings. Weissert slightly improved his walk rate in his limited sample last year, but if he continues making strides with his control during spring training, he'll have a much better shot of breaking camp with the Red Sox. The right-hander's chances of entering Boston's high-leverage mix will only increase if the team elects to trade its veteran relievers on expiring contracts (Kenley Jansen and Chris Martin).

  • Red Sox's Greg Weissert: Extends scoreless run

It was the eighth consecutive scoreless outing for Weissert, who has excelled as part a bullpen that ranks eighth in the majors with a 3.38 ERA. The right-hander sports a 1.17 ERA and 0.91 WHIP with 16 strikeouts and three walks over 15.1 innings.

    Weissert (0-1) was charged with the loss against the Angels on Saturday. He allowed two unearned runs on one hit and one walk while striking out one over 1.1 innings.

  • Red Sox's Greg Weissert: Secures roster spot

    Weissert will make the 2024 Opening Day roster, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports. Weissert was in danger of being left off the roster as long as Brennan Bernardino was projected to begin the year in the bullpen, but skipper Alex Cora stated Tuesday that Weissert had made the team over Bernardino, who was optioned to Triple-A Worcester. Weissert appeared in 17 games a season ago for the Yankees, posting a 4.05 ERA and 1.45 WHIP with 22 punchouts across 20 innings.

  • Red Sox's Greg Weissert: Throws scoreless frame

    Weissert struck out one over a hitless and scoreless relief inning in Wednesday's spring game against the Yankees. Weissert, who was acquired from the Yankees in the Alex Verdugo trade, has allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out seven over 5.2 Grapefruit League innings. There are few moving parts as the Red Sox evaluate bullpen arms, and Weissert appears to be on the bubble at this stage. He was added to the bullpen in a roster projection compiled by Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald, who noted Zack Kelly, Chris Murphy, Joe Jacques, Joely Rodriguez and Lucas Luetge as possibilities.

    The Yankees optioned Weissert to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

  • Yankees' Greg Weissert: Promoted to big leagues

    Weissert was recalled by the Yankees on Friday. Weissert appeared in 12 games for the Yankees last season, surrendering seven earned runs across 11.1 innings out of the bullpen. He's gotten off to a much better start this year with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (1.69 ERA, 0.39 WHIP, 5.1 IP) and will look to provide New York's bullpen with some reinforcements. Colten Brewer was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

  • Yankees' Greg Weissert: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Yankees optioned Weissert to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports. The 28-year-old was one of the last cuts as he came up just shy of making the Opening Day bullpen. Weissert doesn't have anything left to prove in the minors and could be the first reliever summoned when one is needed.

The 27-year-old righty will finish his rookie season with a 5.56 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 11:5 K:BB across 11.1 innings out of the New York bullpen.

  • Yankees' Greg Weissert: Up as extra man

    Weissert was recalled Tuesday to serve as the 29th man for the doubleheader against the Rangers. The 27-year-old received his first taste of big-league action this season and has largely failed to impress. In 10.1 innings, he owns a 6.10 ERA, though his 1.06 WHIP is an encouraging mark.

  • Yankees' Greg Weissert: Wild in big-league debut

    Weissert allowed three runs on two walks while hitting two batters over one-third of an inning against Oakland on Thursday. Weissert was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday and was summoned from the bullpen with the Yankees up big in the seventh inning. His first outing as a major-leaguer didn't go well, as he threw only five of 15 pitches for strikes and hit two batters in addition to issuing two free passes while recording only one out. Nerves likely came into play, but Weissert has had some control issues in the minors this season, registering a 3.7 BB/9 and hitting five batters over 46 innings. He was able to overcome that to post a 1.76 ERA and 0.89 WHIP, however.
