Workman the workhorse: Right-hander no longer working under radar

(Continued)

Almanzar is hitting .268 with runners in scoring position. He also has hit well against both lefties (.385 OBP) and righties (.376 OBP).

RUBBY HEATING UP

Right-hander Rubby De La Rosa, who the Red Sox acquired with righty pitcher Allen Webster from the Dodgers, has been pitching well lately for the PawSox.

He surrendered 10 runs, all earned, in his first three starts (6.2 innings) this season. But he hasn’t allowed a run over his past four starts (14.0 innings).

The Red Sox haven’t pitched him more than 4.0 innings in any game this year. They are monitoring his inning count early this season because he pitched only a limited amount late last season after undergoing Tommy John surgery the year before.

The opposition is batting just .197 against De La Rosa. He has 26 strikeouts and 10 walks in his 20.2 innings.

DOYLE TODAY

Salem High grad Terry Doyle will make his eight start of the season for the PawSox tonight at 7:15 p.m. He faces Charlotte.

Doyle is 3-2 with a 2.56 ERA and a .212 batting average against.
