    The Red Sox announced this afternoon that they have released Carlos Silva.

Silva signed…

    Carlos Silva‘s shoulder problems took him out of the running for a spot in the Red Sox’s rotation and manager Bobby Valentine indicated today that Aaron Cook is also unlikely to win the fifth-starter competition while recovering from shoulder problems of his own. Valentine replied “I doubt it” when asked if Cook would have enough…

    Nothing is official yet, but Peter Gammons of MLB Network reports that the Red Sox have agreed to terms with right-hander Vicente Padilla and Alex Speier of WEEI.com says it’s a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training. Padilla missed nearly all of last season following neck surgery and worked strictly as a reliever…

    Carlos Silva spent the final season of his four-year, $48 million contract at Triple-A and the 32-year-old right-hander will likely begin 2012 there as well after agreeing to a minor-league contract with the Red Sox. Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that Silva will earn a prorated share of $1 million if the Red Sox call…

    Chicago Cubs right-hander Carlos Silva (10-4, 3.76 ERA), who is experiencing a stunning resurgence after two horrible seasons in Seattle, left Sunday’s game against the Colorado Rockies in the first inning with an abnormal heart rate, according to the Associated Press.

  7. The Red Sox are all about second chances

    Apr 2, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    As Drew wrote last night, the Sox gave Scott Schoenweis a job in the bullpen after less than a week in camp. Is this evidence that, as I mentioned in my preview, that the Sox’ bullpen is an area of concern, or are they merely taking a chance in the hopes of redeeming an obviously…

  8. The Cubs' Carlos Silva is good? The White Sox's Jake Peavy is bad? This has got to be an April Fools' prank

    Apr 1, 2010, 11:25 PM EDT

    There is something odd going on with the Chicago sports scene. No, Jay Cutler has not acquired the, umm, intestinal fortitude necessary to play quarterback. That would be too unbelievable to entertain even on April Fools’ Day. But what is happening is so puzzling it makes you rethink everything you know about baseball. Yes, as…

    Dec 21, 2009, 1:51 PM EDT

    Philip Humber was the third overall pick in the 2004 draft following a brilliant college career and went from the Mets to the Twins as part of the four-player package for Johan Santana, but just two years later he could manage only a minor-league deal from the Royals after being cut by Minnesota. Humber twice…

  10. Milton Bradley's greatest hits in Chicago

    Dec 21, 2009, 9:29 AM EDT

    The first round of analysis arising out of the Milton Bradley trade has followed this general narrative: the Mariners fleeced the Cubs, dumping a truly useless player in Carlos Silva for a troubled but useful one in Bradley. And I think, generally speaking, it’s the right call. If everything breaks right, this could be a…
