Teammate joins Tanner Houck on the unvaccinated list

The Boston Red Sox saw Jarren Duran join a teammate on the unvaccinated list ahead of their trip to Toronto.

Jarren Duran is the newest player on the unvaccinated list, putting the Boston Red Sox in a difficult position with the stakes high.

Duran joins Tanner Houck on this list after telling a Boston publication that he does not have a COVID-19 vaccine.

Regardless of whether getting the vaccine is his choice or not, and while it is his choice, the Red Sox are uncomfortable with that decision. These players know the rules of international travel, and now they won’t have him or Houck in a game that could decide an American League wild card spot.

At this point, the Red Sox could judge whether or not Duran would be a good fit for the team. He hasn’t played well this season and now they can’t use him in one of the biggest series of the season.

That decision could cost him his Red Sox spot, which is unfortunate because it shouldn’t be. I’m not scolding him for not getting the shot because it’s his choice, but playing baseball is his job so it’s hard to feel sorry for him.

Boston could find someone who has a better season and can travel to replace him because at this point it costs them more to sit at home than it costs him to play badly for them.

Even if he played better lately, it wasn’t consistent enough to fix this situation. It puts the Red Sox in a tough spot, and that’s not helping anyone.

Maybe missing out on this trip will make him reconsider his decision, but if not, that’s okay too because these things will work out on their own.

However, it’s up to the Red Sox whether they decide to do something about it to help them be more successful or keep him in Boston. Teammate joins Tanner Houck on the unvaccinated list
