Player Outlook
Reese McGuire has found a nice home in Boston servicing as the backup catcher for a club that appreciates what he can do behind the plate while being understanding of what he cannot do at the plate. McGuire is a perfectly fine catcher if you need a one category catcher who hits for average as long as you understand that there is more pop in a t-shirt cannon firing Red Sox shirts into the stands between innings than there is in McGuire's bat. The former first round pick has never seen 275 plate appearances in a regular season and that is unlikely changing anytime soon. Fantasy manager in AL-Only leagues can use their last pick or last dollar on McGuire's batting average as long as they do not need to chase late power.

  • Red Sox's Reese McGuire: Getting second straight start

    McGuire will start at catcher and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Royals, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. McGuire will be rewarded with a second straight start to close out of the Red Sox's pre-All-Star-break schedule after he went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Saturday's 5-0 win. Though he's delivered two-hit performances in both of his last two starts, McGuire is still the clear No. 2 option at catcher behind Connor Wong, who holds a 204-point edge in OPS (.812 to .608) on the season.

  • Red Sox's Reese McGuire: Starts with Wong on paternity list

    McGuire will start at catcher and bat eighth in Monday's game against the Blue Jays. McGuire will make the first of what will likely be two or three starts versus Toronto after the Red Sox placed top backstop Connor Wong (personal) on the paternity list Monday. Assuming Wong is away from the Red Sox for the maximum three games, McGuire will presumably move back into the No. 2 role following Thursday's team off day. The Red Sox called up Tyler Heineman from Triple-A Worcester to provide an insurance option at catcher behind McGuire while Wong is on paternity leave.

  • Red Sox's Reese McGuire: Breaks home-run drought

    McGuire went 2-for-3 with a solo home run during Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Rays. McGuire went yard in the ninth inning off Erasmo Ramirez, marking the catchers' third homer of the season and his first since April 7. McGuire has been operating as the backup to Connor Wong in May, and he hasn't shown enough at the plate to warrant more playing time since, batting .214 with Tuesday's long ball being his only extra-base hit during the month.

  • Red Sox's Reese McGuire: Losing work to Wong

    McGuire is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Guardians, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports. The lefty-hitting McGuire will take a seat against right-hander Carlos Carrasco and looks to have moved into a pure No. 2 role at catcher behind the righty-hitting Connor Wong, after McGuire had previously been occupying the strong side of a platoon. McGuire is on the bench for the third game in a row and for the second straight day against a right-hander, with the downturn in playing time coming while he's batted just .167 over his last nine games.

  • Red Sox's Reese McGuire: Idle Saturday

  • Red Sox's Reese McGuire: Homers in win

    McGuire went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Friday's 8-6 win over the Angels. McGuire started for the fourth time in the last five games which is a surprising development. In spring training, Connor Wong was the presumed primary catcher, but he's made just three starts. McGuire is 6-for-19 with two extra-base hits and three RBI over seven appearances.

  • Red Sox's Reese McGuire: Making another start

    McGuire will be at catcher and bat eighth in Wednesday's game versus the Athletics, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. After yielding to Connor Wong in two of the first three games, McGuire has now started three of the last four contests. While it's not surprising Boston's catching situation has been a timeshare, it's a bit of a surprise it has leaned in McGuire's favor thus far. McGuire is off to a 5-for-12 start at the dish.

  • Red Sox's Reese McGuire: Returns to lineup

    McGuire (illness) is starting behind the plate and batting fifth in Sunday's split-squad game against Atlanta, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. The 29-year-old was scratched from Thursday's starting nine due to an illness but will return to action after resting up over the past couple days. McGuire had a .688 OPS in 202 plate appearances last season and is poised to open 2024 as the primary backup to Connor Wong at catcher.

  • Red Sox's Reese McGuire: Scratched with illness

    McGuire was scratched from the Red Sox's lineup ahead of Thursday's spring training game against the Phillies due to an illness, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. McGuire will likely sit out the Red Sox's next few games as he recovers from his illness. The 29-year-old is 4-for-18 with a run scored this spring and appears in line to back up Connor Wong behind the dish this season.

  • Red Sox's Reese McGuire: Heads to bench Monday

    McGuire is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers. He'll give way to Connor Wong behind the dish as Boston opens a three-game set in Texas. McGuire and Wong have been splitting work at catcher in relatively equitable fashion thus far in September, with the former getting seven starts to the latter's 10. With a .154/.241/.231 slash line so far this month, McGuire hasn't made a compelling case to push for a larger share of the playing time.

  • Red Sox's Reese McGuire: Homers in return

    McGuire went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional RBI in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Mariners. McGuire missed about six weeks with an oblique injury. He had no trouble getting the ball in the air in his return, popping a solo shot and a sacrifice fly to contribute to the offense. The catcher is slashing a decent .269/.310/.380 with one homer, 13 RBI, 12 runs scored and nine doubles through 41 contests this season. He's likely to remain behind Connor Wong on the depth chart going forward.

  • Red Sox's Reese McGuire: Set to return for Seattle series

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Monday that McGuire will be activated from the 10-day injured list at some point during the team's series in Seattle to begin the week, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. McGuire made the trip with the Red Sox to Seattle after he spent the past weekend at Triple-A Worcester, with whom he went 2-for-10 with a double and a walk during his three-game rehab assignment. Cora indicated everything went well for McGuire on the rehab assignment, but the Red Sox's decision not to activate him Monday may have been designed to give the team as much roster flexibility as possible leading into Tuesday's deadline. Assuming McGuire is reinstated Tuesday or Wednesday, he'll unseat Jorge Alfaro as the top backup to No. 1 catcher Connor Wong.
