Taylor Motter provides depth within the organization
Since joining the Red Sox, the soon to be 32-year-old Motter has been a fan favorite. Motter hit .333 with the Sox during his brief three game stint.
Motter was added off waivers by the Red Sox to provide depth while the club battles through COVID-19 issues. He was DFA’d following the return of Kiké Hernandez and Danny Santana who were activated from the COVID-19 related injured list on Tuesday.
Boston announced Chris Sale will now be placed on the COVID-19 related IL on Friday afternoon.
The Red Sox enter play Friday night holding a three-game advantage over the Blue Jays and Mariners in the American League Wild Card race. Boston is one full game up on the Yankees in the American League Wild Card race.
