Red Sox Avoid Sweep Vs. Cubs, Lose Rich Hill, Xander Bogaerts

Locked On Red Sox - Daily Podcast On The Boston Red Sox show

Summary: The Boston Red Sox may have avoided the sweep by the Chicago Cubs this weekend, but they lost Rich Hill and Xander Bogaerts in the process. NESN's Lauren Campbell recaps the weekend that included some shotty offenses but strong pitching, while providing updates on Hill (knee strain) and Bogaerts (thigh laceration). Hill landed on the 15-day injured list and Bogaerts is listed as day-to-day. Some positive takeaways from the weekend was another strong start from Josh Winckowski and Connor Seabold bouncing back with a much better start than his one earlier this season. Lauren also looks at Jarren Duran continuing to stay hot and reveals he has been vaccinated against COVID-19, meaning he will be available for the Red Sox when they return to Toronto to face the Blue Jays in September. Lauren also provides an update on Chris Sale and when Red Sox fans might see him return to Boston, and also discusses Garrett Whitlock moving back to the bullpen (something Lauren is very happy about).
