    Last week Red Sox manager John Farrell hinted that Will Middlebrooks might stay in the minors for a while even after he was activated from the disabled list, but after posting a 1.094 OPS in five rehab games at Triple-A he’s off the DL and back in Boston’s lineup tonight. To make room for Middlebrooks…

    Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz had to leave tonight’s game against the Angels in the seventh inning. He had been pitching well, limiting the Angels to two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out four in six and two-thirds innings. NESN’s live blog described the scenario: 9:59 p.m., Red Sox 7-2: Clay…

  3. 2013 MLB Draft: Round 6-10 notes – Braves GM picks his son

    Jun 7, 2013, 8:11 PM EST

    Kyle Wren, Brandon Hohl

    - One big thing to remember here: the new draft rules that kicked in last year really sucked the air out of these rounds. Instead of going for upside guys, a lot of teams are drafting college seniors in rounds 5-10 and then trying to sign them well under slot, freeing up money for more…

    Will Middlebrooks Getty

    Will Middlebrooks began a minor-league rehab assignment last night at Triple-A, but manager John Farrell indicated that the third baseman may not automatically return to the Red Sox once he’s recovered from a back injury. Griffin Tewksbury of WEEI.com has all of Farrell’s quotes, including: This is not only a chance to make sure his…

    One of my favorite parts of the draft each year is all the relatives of current and former big leaguers being picked out of high school and college. Conor Glassey of Baseball America has combed through thousands of potential draftees to put together a pretty extensive list of players with MLB bloodlines, along with some…

  6. Shane Victorino’s rehab delayed

    Jun 2, 2013, 10:20 PM EST

    Shane Victorino

    Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino will wait a little while longer before starting his rehab. Manager John Farrell says Victorino is “not running at 100 percent yet”, per WEEI’s Alex Speier. The Sox were hopeful that Victorino would need the minimum 15 days before being activated on June 5, but mid-June is now a more…

  7. Jacoby Ellsbury is improving

    Jacoby Ellsbury,  Jimmy Rollins

    Jacoby Ellsbury sat out his second straight game last night. And may miss a third today given that the Sox have an offday tomorrow and giving him four straight days off to recover may be ideal, but his groin is doing much better according to John Farrell in the Boston Globe: “Not ruling out [Sunday]…

  8. Red Sox recalling Jackie Bradley Jr. from Triple-A

    May 29, 2013, 10:47 AM EST

    Boston Red Sox v New York Yankees

    Jackie Bradley Jr. began the season as the Red Sox’s starting left fielder, got off to a terrible 3-for-31 (.097) start, and was promptly demoted to Triple-A in mid-April. He took the demotion in stride, hitting .354 in 20 games for Pawtucket even while dealing with a shoulder injury, and now Maureen Mullen of CSNNE.com…

    Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz will not start tomorrow evening for the start of a two-game home-and-home against the Phillies, reports Evan Drellich on Twitter. Buchholz is suffering from an injury in the “collar bone area”, but manager John Farrell called the move precautionary and mentioned that Buchholz could simply start later in the week.…

  10. Jacoby Ellsbury: “You see what happens when I get going”

    May 22, 2013, 10:47 AM EST

    Jacoby Ellsbury

    Jacoby Ellsbury is hitting just .242 with a .307 on-base percentage, but Red Sox manager John Farrell has stuck with him in the leadoff spot. However, the manager did admit to Rob Bradford of WEEI.com that he’s considering shifting Ellsbury down in the batting order. For his part Ellsbury thinks that would be a mistake,…

  11. Red Sox put Joel Hanrahan on DL, call up Allen Webster, demote Felix Doubront to bullpen

    hanrahan getty

    Joel Hanrahan exited Monday night’s game with a strained forearm and the Red Sox have placed him on the disabled list. Manager John Farrell has already said that Junichi Tazawa, not Koji Uehara, will serve as the fill-in closer with both Hanrahan and Andrew Bailey on the shelf. And to add another arm to the…

  12. Junichi Tazawa is going to be the Red Sox’ closer

    May 7, 2013, 2:02 PM EST

    Tazawa_Junichi

    John Farrell was on MLB Network Radio today and was asked about his closer situation, what with Joel Hanrahan leaving Monday’s game with forearm soreness: “We’d look to close Tazawa, keep Koji in the 8th inning role. Fortunately we have some depth internally” Koji being Koji Uehara, of course, who many probably assumed would be next…

    Andrew Bailey‘s stint as Red Sox closer was short-lived because he’s been placed on the disabled list with right biceps inflammation. To take his place on the roster and in the bullpen the Red Sox activated Craig Breslow, who’s been on the DL all season with a shoulder injury, but Joel Hanrahan will get a…

  14. Should the Angels trade Mike Scioscia?

    May 5, 2013, 10:05 PM EST

    mike-scioscia-angels

    With an 8-4 loss to the Orioles this afternoon, the Angels dropped to 11-20 on the season, ahead of only the lowly Astros in the AL West. What was thought to be a promising season for the win-now Angels has become a nightmare due to injuries, a putrid starting rotation, and an ineffective start to…

  15. By the way, the Red Sox still think the Blue Jays are cheaters, too

    May 3, 2013, 1:44 PM EST

    Boston Red Sox v Toronto Maple Leafs

    While Dirk Hayhurst and Jack Morris have chimed in, none of this “Clay Buchholz is cheating” talk is coming from Blue Jays players or management. And it probably won’t. The Blue Jays don’t want to go accusing someone of cheating and then have their own dirty laundry aired. The Red Sox, for instance, still seem…

  16. Joel Hanrahan converts save with Andrew Bailey unavailable due to biceps soreness

    May 2, 2013, 11:29 PM EST

    Joel Hanrahan Getty

    When Joel Hanrahan was activated from the disabled list earlier this week, Red Sox manager John Farrell decided to stick with Andrew Bailey in the closer role. That arrangement didn’t last long, as Hanrahan converted the save in tonight’s 3-1 win over the Blue Jays because Bailey was unavailable due to biceps soreness. Bailey told…

  17. Clay Buchholz denies claims that he was doctoring baseball

    May 2, 2013, 7:45 PM EST

    Clay Buchholz

    Former big-league pitcher turned author Dick Hayhurst, who currently does some radio work for the Blue Jays, accused Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz of doctoring the baseball in last night’s win in Toronto. Forget the hair, I just saw video of Buchholz loading the ball with some Eddie Harris worthy slick’em painted up his left…

  18. Red Sox activate Joel Hanrahan, but will he resume closing?

    Apr 30, 2013, 2:14 PM EST

    hanrahan getty

    As expected the Red Sox activated Joel Hanrahan from the disabled list after the reliever missed the past two weeks with a hamstring injury. Hanrahan was the Red Sox’s closer at the time of the injury, but fill-in Andrew Bailey has converted five straight save chances and has a 1.46 ERA with 20 strikeouts in…

    From beat writer Sean McAdam of CSNNewEngland comes word that the Red Sox have optioned right-hander Alfredo Aceves to Triple-A Pawtucket. Aceves was hammered for eight runs over just 3 1/3 innings on Tuesday night against the A’s, lifting his season ERA to 8.66. He also owns a brutal 2.09 WHIP and 14/12 K/BB ratio…

    From beat writer Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald: After a meeting this morning with Joel Hanrahan, manager John Farrell believes the Red Sox have identified a reason for the embattled closer’s early-season struggles. Hanrahan has been dealing with soreness in his right hamstring since his second appearance of the season in New York, Farrell revealed today. And…

  21. Daniel Nava: a true American success story

    Apr 8, 2013, 5:55 PM EST

    Daniel Nava

    Daniel Nava was the unlikeliest major leaguer in any starting lineup today. And it’s safe to say a lot of Red Sox fans were disappointed to see him starting over Jackie Bradley Jr. in left field in the Fenway Park season opener. Nava, though, rewarded manager John Farrell’s show of faith with a homer over…

  22. David Ortiz could be ready for minor league games soon

    David Ortiz Reuters

    David Ortiz will begin the season on the disabled list as he works his way back from pain in both of his heels, but he’s inching closer to returning to game action. According to Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe, Red Sox manager John Farrell said today that Ortiz will travel with the team to…

    Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew was diagnosed with a concussion 10 days ago after getting beaned in the batting helmet by a pitch. And the 30-year-old has not made a whole lot of tangible progress since. Scott Lauber — Red Sox beat writer for the Boston Herald — reports that Drew “has been cleared only to lightly…
