Red Sox P Rick Porcello rocked in loss to Angels
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello allowed seven earned runs during Friday night's 12-5 loss to the Angels.
Porcello was only able to go 4 1/3 innings, with his appearance in the fifth inning a particular disaster for him. Five of the nine runs that inning were credited to Porcello. Porcello struck out four batters while walking three.
Porcello has now struck out 10 batters over the past two games. He now has an ERA of 5.07 this season.
His next start is projected for May 27 against the Twins.
Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello strikes out six in win on Saturday
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/17/15) Red Sox starter Rick Porcello gave up two runs, both via home runs, on five hits in 6 2/3 innings Saturday in Boston's 4-2 win over the Mariners.
"I feel good," Porcello said, per MLB.com. "I feel like I have a good fastball. It changes throughout the course of the season, from year to year. Some years you've got more behind it, and this year I feel that way, so we're using the fastball more."
The two home runs were both hit by designated hitter Brad Miller.
Porcello returns to the mound for his next start Friday against the Angels.

Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello notches third win of the season
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/5/15) Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello tossed seven scoreless innings, scattering eight hits in Boston's 2-0 win over the Rays on Tuesday.
Porcello was able to work out of a couple of jams after putting runners on base. In the fourth inning, Porcello put runners on first and second, but forced Logan Forsythe to line out into a double play. He would finish the inning by striking out Asdrubal Cabrera. Porcello totaled six strikeouts with no walks in the appearance.
Porcello, now 3-2, lowered his ERA to 4.38 and will look to keep rolling Monday against the Athletics.
Red Sox's Rick Porcello allows one run in win vs. Blue Jays
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/29/15) Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello earned a win Wednesday, giving up one earned run on just two hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out six in his team's 4-1 victory over the Blue Jays.
Porcello (2-2) surrendered his only run on a fielder's choice with the bases loaded in the second inning but was able to get a double play to end the inning before any more runs could cross the plate. He then delivered perfect frames in his next four innings before giving up a single and a walk in the seventh but stranding a runner at third.
"He gave us exactly what we needed, seven strong innings," Boston manager John Farrell said. "As much as we talked about starters setting the tone, Rick did exactly that tonight."
Porcello's win Wednesday was his best start of the season, and he now owns a 5.34 ERA and 29:10 K:BB ratio in 32 innings. He'll square off with the Rays next week.

|2014 summary: Fantasy owners had been waiting for a Rick Porcello breakout for a few years, and it finally happened in his age-25 season. Porcello registered his first sub-3.50 ERA ever and his first sub-4.00 ERA in five years, but he didn't do it by missing more bats. Instead, Porcello tightened up his control and stranded more of his baserunners, resulting in a 3.43 ERA and 1.23 WHIP. He also pitched deeper into games, which allowed him to set career highs for innings pitched (204 2/3) and quality starts (21). Porcello will attempt to build on his progress with the Red Sox, to whom he was traded this offsesason.
Playing time status: Porcello has been durable over his six-year career, and now that he is more efficient, he has a chance to top 200 innings again in 2015 for the Red Sox.
2015 outlook: Last season, Porcello was a top 40 starter in points leagues, but a top 50 starter in Rotisserie leagues. Because innings and quality starts could be an important part of his value again this year, owners should expect a similar discrepancy in his value between formats. Either way, Porcello is an appropriate target in the middle-to-late rounds in standard mixed leagues.
