During his short tenure with the Red Sox, Motter played in three games where he hit .333 with a double, triple and an RBI. 

Motter’s last game with the Red Sox came on Monday, the infielder hit lead off for Alex Cora. He would go 2-for-5 with a double, triple and an RBI. Motter hit his triple to lead off the bottom of the sixth inning. Despite providing key hits for the Sox at the plate, Motter made two crucial errors in the Monday’s game against Tampa Bay.

The Red Sox would go on to lose the game to the Rays 11-10 after leading the game 7-1. The loss was won of the toughest the Sox have experienced all season. 

Motter was added off waivers by the Red Sox to provide depth while the club battles through COVID-19 issues. The club DFA’d him on Tuesday to create room for Kiké Hernandez who is coming off the COVID-19 related IL.
