Recent Update

11/13:Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Brian Johnson is expected to make a full-time move to the bullpen in 2018. The promising left-hander made five starts for the BoSox in 2017, going 2-0 with a 4.33 ERA with 21 strikeouts and eight walks in 27 innings. He had a 3.10 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 18 starts at two minor league levels. His move to a permanent role in the bullpen will kill any potential fantasy value he had in deeper leagues, but he could be an AL-only streamer if he makes spot starts again.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBaller
