Michael Wacha can serve as a key addition after the deadline

The Boston Red Sox had been without one of their best starters, Michael Wacha, since June.

He missed more than a month of action with inflammation in his right shoulder.

The shoulder is crucial for a pitcher, perhaps the most important and influential body part for them: keeping it healthy is always a priority.

That’s why Boston made sure he was fully healed before bringing him back.

When he finally did, Sunday night, he was off.

“In his first outing since June, Michael Wacha had it all,” the official MLB Twitter account wrote Monday, along with its stat line against the New York Yankees.

He pitched seven scoreless innings, with just two hits allowed and one walk.

Wacha completely dominated the Yankees

The Yankees had all sorts of trouble getting in touch with Wacha’s business, as they hit the starter nine times.

You could almost say that Wacha is the perfect addition for the Sox.

At 57-59, the Red Sox have fallen to last place in the AL East Division, but that doesn’t mean their season is over yet.

They will have to fight their way back into the race, of course, but they will still have about a month and a half of games left.

However, they must start winning matches as a group: time is no longer their friend.

The roster has suffered several key injuries, but the Red Sox are still capable of making the playoffs if certain things go right.

Let’s not forget that the foundation of this team went all the way to the American League Championship Series last year: they know how to play baseball, they have a great offense and a fantastic manager in the person of Alex Cora .

Having Wacha, who has a 2.44 ERA in 77.1 innings in 2022, will definitely help.
