The #RedSox today placed RHP Ryan Brasier on the bereavement/family medical emergency list.
To fill Brasier’s spot on the 25-man roster, the club recalled LHP Darwinzon Hernandez from Double-A Portland.
My God, Darwinzon Hernandez. That first inning was unbelievable. Three strikeouts. Two on 98 mph. Other on a nasty slider.
I understand he's still developing and is prone to command issues but remains hard to believe the Red Sox have been using Josh Smith and Ryan Weber over him
Darwinzon Hernandez will be called up to start tomorrow.
Impressive first inning of a first start for Darwinzon Hernandez. Three straight strikeouts.
Darwinzon Hernandez just struck out the side in the first inning of his first major-league start. Be still my beating heart
¡Darwinzon Hernández ponchó a todos los Rangers que enfrentó en la 1ra entrada!
¡Sigan el partido!

The Darwinzon Hernandez experience: 4 straight Ks, 2 straight BBs. Stuff borders on unhittable but control lapses almost invariably occur - and even though he’s pitched around plenty of them in the minors, they hinder pitch efficiency and create ?s about his starter profile.
FYI, Rafael Devers is only about two months older than Darwinzon Hernandez
Darwinzon Hernandez's first inning as a major-league starter: 3 strikeouts on 13 pitches.
Darwinzon Hernandez has struck out the first four batters he's faced.
This season is such a mindfuck.
After four strikeouts and two walks, the first ball Texas puts in play vs. Darwinzon Hernandez is a ground-rule double by Odor and the Rangers lead, 1-0.
His command as wavering and Leon and Bogaerts go to the mound.
Six years ago, Darwinzon Hernandez thought his career was over before it started, and so jumped when the Sox offered $7500, willing to pitch his way to prospect status https://t.co/RLAvinqxYh
Darwinzon Hernández thru 2nd inning, in his MLB career
4.1 IP - 9 K - 18.7 K/9
Darwinzon Hernández - 16 batters faced - 4 balls in play
2 Fly outs
That's called filling up the score book
Four straight strikeouts, two straight walks. This was indeed the book on Darwinzon Hernandez. #RedSox
By the way, Darwinzon Hernández, depending how he fares as a starting pitcher at the MLB level, could be huge for the Red Sox
IMO, if he preforms at even a decent level, Nathan Eovaldi will be in the bullpen the rest of the season
After all, the Red Sox don't want to spend
Darwinzon Hernandez’s first inning in the majors:
Swinging strikeout (4 pitches)
Swinging strikeout (4 pitches)
Swinging strikeout (5 pitches)
Darwinzon Hernandez has walked three in the inning. Rangers thirsting for the big hit to break it open. Hernandez's wildness has been, to some degree, effective.
Like I said, I hate Darwinzon Hernandez.
Boston's Darwinzon Hernandez recorded Ks on fastballs of 97.7 mph and 97.1 mph in the 1st inning of his 1st career start.
He's only the 5th LH SP this year to record a K on a pitch 97+ mph (Sale, Paxton, Snell, STL rookie Genesis Cabrera).
Darwinzon Hernandez threw 25 four-seam fastballs in the first two innings. He averaged 95.4 mph and topped out at 97.7 mph.
I've known about Darwinzon Hernandez for quite some time but boy oh boy he is showing me something tonight. Electric stuff so far
Strikeout! 4 in row to start the game for #RedSox starter Darwinzon Hernández.
That does it for Darwinzon Hernandez after 86 pitches. On comes Colten Brewer in a 3-3 game in the 4th. #RedSox
Darwinzon Hernandez strikes out 7 but walks 5 in three innings. Has filthy stuff that makes it easy to see why he has a high ceiling but control clearly still a work in progress. #RedSox
Darwinzon Hernandez is the second Red Sox pitcher since 1969 with at least five strikeouts and five walks in their first MLB start.
(7/31/05- Jonathan Papelbon)
Who the fuck is Darwinzon Hernandez and why is he pitching for the Red Sox
I said it during @PAndM_WMLN
on Monday, Darwinzon Hernandez is not ready to be starting games for the #RedSox. He’s not even close.
Darwinzon Hernandez’s dominance in the first inning is the exact reason he should already be a fixture in the #RedSox bullpen. We know about the consistency and control issues, but if he’s used in short stints, opposing teams will be terrifed of him late in games.
A nervous rookie pitcher with a high upside making his first MLB start in Darwinzon Hernandez and a cocky veteran ump of questionable eyesight in Angel Hernandez. I love baseball. Kid's getting an education tonight! #redsox #rangers
Impressive first inning for Darwinzon Hernandez with three K’s... however walks have been a huge issue for him
That 3-1 pitch to Elvis Andrus looked like a strike (5), but Darwinzon Hernandez's wildness won't earn him a Maddux-like benefit of a close call or two. #RedSox https://t.co/KiKz7uspvZ
I am very excited to see #RedSox pitcher Darwinzon Hernandez evolve over the next few years. https://t.co/BSdm6QQxut
Red Sox Fun Fact of the Day (brought to you by @alexspeier
of the Boston Globe): Darwinzon Hernandez’s first inning fastball that topped out at 97.7 MPH is tied for the fastest pitch thrown by a Sox lefty during this 2019 season. #TriangleFacts
Darwinzon Hernandez is evolving in front of our very eyes.
This is Darwinzon Hernandez. Making his debut tonight

#RedSox turn to Colten Brewer now in relief of Darwinzon Hernández vs #Rangers.
Darwinzon Hernandez exits after 3+ innings in his first MLB start. The last Red Sox to strikeout seven batters in their first career start was Matt Barnes on 8/17/15.
And that's the night for #RedSox starter Darwinzon Hernández.
Portland and Pawtucket talent at Fenway prices.
Bobby Poynter (warming up)
I’m convinced the Red Sox are using computer-generated players to pitch. There is no way that Darwinzon Hernandez is real. #RedSox

Really think a Darwinzon Hernandez/Mike Shawaryn tandem is what the Red Sox should throw out there as their 5th starter.
Darwinzon Hernandez has walked 32 batters struck out 59 batters in 40.1 innings at AA this year. He is 1-5 with a 5.13 ERA and 1.61 WHIP. If they get a quality start out of him, great. But he clearly needs more time in the minors.
Depois de uma entrada bastante turbulenta, Darwinzon Hernandez consegue sair da encrenca cedendo apenas 1 corrida.
