  • Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Three hits in Tuesday's win

    Yoshida went 3-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Guardians.

    The MLB rookie kicked off Boston's comeback victory in the sixth inning, ripping a leadoff double and scoring on an Enrique Hernandez single. Yoshida continues to impress during his first season in North America, and with seven multi-hit performances in his last 10 games, he's boosted his batting average to .319 -- second in the American League behind Bo Bichette's .332 mark.

  • Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Hitting second against Cleveland

    Yoshida is playing left field and hitting second against the Guardians on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Yoshida has mostly hit in the middle of the order for the Red Sox, but after his third multi-hit game of the month against Cleveland on Tuesday, the rookie outfielder will hit behind Alex Verdugo versus Tanner Bibee and the Guardians. Rafael Devers will hit cleanup with Justin Turner lined up in the third spot.

  • Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Swats seventh homer

    Yoshida went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and an additional run in a loss to the Reds on Wednesday.

    Yoshida put the Red Sox on the board with a solo shot to right field in the second inning and came around to score following a double in the eighth. The outfielder tallied his fourth straight multi-hit game, during which he's batting a scorching .643 (9-for-14). The long ball was his first since May 4, but Yoshida has been impressive offensively in his first MLB campaign, slashing .317/.391/.508 while walking nearly as many times (20) as he's struck out (21).

  • Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Swipes bag Saturday

    Yoshida went 1-for-5 with a double and a stolen base in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Padres.

    Yoshida also reached on a fielder's choice, which led to his stolen base in the fourth inning. The outfielder hasn't shown overwhelming speed so far, racking up three steals in his first 38 major-league games. He's hit safely in six of his last seven contests and is now batting .295 with an .863 OPS, six home runs, 28 RBI, 26 runs scored, nine doubles and one triple this season.

  • Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Big day against M's

    Yoshida went 2-for-5 with a double, a triple, two runs scored and three RBI in Tuesday's 9-4 win over the Mariners.

    Boston's bats were booming in this one as all six hits they collected against Luis Castillo went for extra bases, and Yoshida was right in the thick of the offensive eruption. The 29-year-old MLB rookie has found his groove at the plate, and over his last 97 plate appearances he's slashing a dazzling .375/.423/.648 with seven doubles, a triple, five homers, 17 runs and 21 RBI.

  • Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Day off Monday

    Yoshida is absent from the lineup for Monday's game against the Mariners, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    Yoshida's last week at the plate was a rough one, as he managed just three hits in 19 at-bats. He'll get a day off to regroup. Raimel Tapia will handle left field.

  • Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Day off Saturday

    Yoshida will sit Saturday against the Phillies, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Yoshida hits the bench against lefty Bailey Falter, but given that he started against each of the previous four lefties the Red Sox faced, he's seemingly not at risk of being platooned. He's riding a 15-game hit streak which has pushed his season slash line up to .315/.400/.537, so Boston will want him in the lineup as often as possible going forward.

  • Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Stays hot Thursday

    Yoshida went 3-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in Thursday's 11-5 win over the Blue Jays.

    Yoshida started the scoring with a solo shot in the first inning, and he added RBI singles in the second and fourth frames. He's hit safely in 14 straight games, going 25-for-56 (.446) over that span. It took the outfielder a couple of weeks to adjust to MLB, but he's now up to a .317/.400/.548 slash line with six homers, 24 RBI, 21 runs scored and two stolen bases through 120 plate appearances.

  • Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Batting stance adjustment working

    Yoshida made a slight adjustment to his batting stance which he credits for his current hot stretch, Ian Browne of reports. The Red Sox outfielder has a hit in 14 consecutive games, going 25-for-56 (.446) with 13 runs, five doubles, five home runs and 15 RBI during the run.

    After consultation with the coaching staff, Yoshida opened up his stance, allowing him to see the ball better. "I can pick out the balls that I should swing at, so I think that's why I'm doing well," Yoshida said. He stressed the only thing that has changed is the stance; his swing remains the same. Yoshida, who batted .189 over his first 53 at-bats against MLB pitching, is up to a .317/.400/.548 slash line for the season.
