    Dustin Pedroia managed to avoid the disabled list after being diagnosed with a torn adductor muscle in his right thumb in late May, but he’ll have no such luck this time around. Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald reports that Pedroia is indeed DL-bound. The 28-year-old second baseman sat out yesterday’s game after jamming his…

  2. Dustin Pedroia needs more tests on his thumb

    Dustin Pedroia tore a muscle in the thumb in late May and missed six games. Then he landed funny on it on Tuesday night, sat out yesterday’s game and now he needs more tests on it, which he’ll get on today’s offday.  Bobby Valentine isn’t worried, though: “Not really hurt. I just think he needs…

  3. Colby Rasmus tries to kick Dustin Pedroia on takeout slide

    Jun 27, 2012, 1:51 PM EDT

    Colby Rasmus kick

    I’m not a big fan of takeout slides as a rule. Toronto’s Colby Rasmus, though, definitely went above and beyond while trying to take out Boston’s Dustin Pedroia in the first inning of Wednesday’s game. After what looked like a perfectly legitimate slide initially, Rasmus decided to put in a little extra effort and kick…

  4. The final AL All-Star balloting update before the teams are set

    There’s still time to vote, but if it ended now, the AL All-Star team would look like so. The only change to a starter over last week’s results: Robinson Cano taking over first place at second base from Ian Kinsler. Downballot, we see A-Rod passing Evan Longoria for third place at third base, a flip-flop…

  5. Dustin Pedroia expected to return to action Thursday

    Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia was lifted from Tuesday night’s game against the Marlins after appearing to aggravate the torn abductor muscle in his right thumb. But he’s fine. Or at least willing to play through the pain brought on by a re-injury. According to Tony Lee of ESPN Boston, Pedroia told reporters that…

  6. AL All-Star balloting update: Jose Bautista joins the leaders

    Jun 18, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    The latest American League ballot totals are in and the red-hot Jose Bautista has moved into third place in the outfielder voting, with Nelson Cruz dropping out of the lineup to fifth place. Bautista had the AL’s highest vote total last year, but his slow start guarantees he won’t duplicate that feat this year. Instead, it looks…

  7. Carlos Marmol is back as the Cubs’ closer

    Jun 16, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Carlos Marmol Getty

    Carlos Marmol notched his first save since May 2 yesterday against the Red Sox, but in typical Marmol-fashion, it wasn’t easy. Marmol gave up a one-out single to Jarrod Saltalamacchia before Mike Aviles reached on a fielding error by third baseman Luis Valbuena. He then struck out Daniel Nava looking before walking Scott Podsednik to…

  8. Cubs shut out Red Sox for first time in 94 years

    Jun 15, 2012, 5:58 PM EDT

    Ryan Dempster

    The last time the Cubs shut out the Red Sox, Fenway Park was six years old. This year, it’s celebrating its centennial. Ryan Dempster blanked the Red Sox for seven innings Friday as part of a 3-0 Cubs victory. It was the first time the Cubs had shut out Boston since Game 5 of the…

  9. Bobby Valentine rips the umps after yesterday’s loss

    Jun 11, 2012, 9:28 AM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Boston Red Sox

    The Red Sox got swept by the Nats over the weekend, which likely put Bobby Valentine in a bad mood. Making it worse: the umpiring. And Valentine used yesterday’s postgame presser to rip the men in blue. He was particularly mad at what he — and everyone who watched it, PitchFx included — thought should…

  10. Dustin Pedroia avoids the DL, returns from thumb injury

    Jun 5, 2012, 4:13 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox  v Toronto Blue Jays

    UPDATE: As expected, Pedroia is back in the Red Sox’s lineup tonight, batting second and playing second base. ========= So much for Dustin Pedroia missing 3-4 weeks with a torn thumb muscle. Pedroia has remained on the active roster without playing since May 28 and now Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that the Red Sox…

  11. MLB draft picks 21-31: Blue Jays land potential impact reliever

    No. 21 – Atlanta Braves – High school right-hander Lucas Sims The Braves taking a local product? Get outta here. Sims is highly-regarded for his velocity, topping out at 97 mph on his heater, but his breaking ball is considered one of the best of from this year’s high school crop of talent. No. 22…

  12. Dustin Pedroia tests injured thumb by taking batting practice

    Jun 2, 2012, 4:15 PM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia Getty

    There’s still a chance that Dustin Pedroia will end up on the disabled list, but he’s doing his best to get back in the lineup as soon as possible. According to the Associated Press, Pedroia took batting practice before today’s game against the Blue Jays. It was his first time swinging a bat since he…

  13. Banged-up Red Sox give Will Middlebrooks shortstop reps

    Jun 1, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Will Middlebrooks

    Injuries have already forced the Red Sox to do some weird things defensively and now the possibility of Dustin Pedroia missing significant time with a thumb injury has led to rookie third baseman Will Middlebrooks getting work at shortstop. Middlebrooks hasn’t played the position since high school and in fact has never played a position…

  14. Dustin Pedroia has a torn thumb muscle, could miss 3-4 weeks

    May 30, 2012, 8:49 AM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia

    Dustin Pedroia sat for last night’s Red Sox-Tigers game due to a thumb injury. After the game, we learned what the injury actually was: Pedroia has torn abductor muscle in right thumb. Will try to hit with it tomorrow; if he can’t likely out 3-4 weeks. #RedSoxTalk — Sean McAdam(@Sean_McAdam) May 30, 2012 Because that’s…

  15. Dustin Pedroia out of Red Sox lineup with thumb injury

    May 29, 2012, 3:49 PM EDT

    pedroia ap wide

    Dustin Pedroia, who left yesterday’s game after jamming his right thumb, is absent from the Red Sox’s starting lineup tonight. He’s considered day-to-day and it’s possible Pedroia could make an appearance off the bench, but in the meantime Nick Punto is starting at second base and batting ninth against Justin Verlander and the Tigers. Pedroia…

  16. Joe Maddon calls throwing at Luke Scott “a weak, cowardly effort”

    May 26, 2012, 9:47 AM EDT

    Joe Maddon Getty

    Benches cleared in the top of the ninth inning of last night’s Rays-Red Sox game after Franklin Morales hit Luke Scott in the leg. No punches were thrown and no players were ejected, but Rays manager Joe Maddon was pretty incensed after his team went on to win the game 7-4. According to Marc Topkin…

  17. Benches clear in Rays-Red Sox game

    May 25, 2012, 10:34 PM EDT

    Luke Scott, Jarrod Saltalamacchia

    After Franklin Morales drilled Luke Scott in the top of the ninth — apparent retaliation for a plunking of Dustin Pedroia earlier — benches cleared in Friday’s game between the Rays and Red Sox at Fenway Park, which Tampa Bay went on to win 7-4. Some bad blood likely carried over from last week’s series…

  18. Andre Ethier not putting deadline on contract talks with Dodgers

    May 23, 2012, 1:57 AM EDT

    ethier getty wide

    During the midst of the Frank McCourt mess, there were rumblings that Andre Ethier would look to join his friend Dustin Pedroia in Boston when he became a free agent after this season. A lot has changed with the first-place Dodgers (who won their sixth straight game on Tuesday night) since then, and Ethier apparently…

  19. David Ortiz doesn’t give a [expletive] about what you think makes a leader

    May 22, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    David Ortiz

    David Ortiz has, what I think anyway, is some righteous anger. It came out last night after the Sox beat the Orioles, and it came in response to reports that he called a closed-door meeting a couple of weeks ago in which the hitters yelled at the pitchers. Since that meeting, by the way, the…

  20. Chris Davis goes 0-for-8, gets the win in 17-inning game

    May 6, 2012, 7:46 PM EDT

    Chris Davis

    It wasn’t pretty, but in many ways, Chris Davis had the most remarkable day on a baseball field that I can ever remember. Starting at DH for the Orioles, Davis fanned in his first five at-bats, hit into a double play in his sixth and grounded out in his seventh before moving to the mound…

  21. Ryan Braun hits three homers then settles for a triple

    May 1, 2012, 1:21 AM EDT

    Ryan Braun

    Ryan Braun hit three homers and then tripled at Petco Park in leading the Brewers to an 8-3 win over the Padres on Monday. Braun struggled this spring while dealing with a possible 50-game steroids suspension that was later overturned, but he’s been locked in since Opening Day. He’s now tied for second in the…

  22. Phil Humber far from perfect in loss to Red Sox

    Apr 26, 2012, 10:15 PM EDT

    AP Phil Humber

    Phil Humber tossed the 21st perfect game in MLB history Saturday against the Mariners, but things were different from the very first batter tonight against the Red Sox. Humber walked leadoff man Mike Aviles before striking out Ryan Sweeney swinging. After Aviles stole second base, Dustin Pedroia singled and Adrian Gonzalez delivered an RBI double.…

  23. Postgame drama in Boston: Bobby V part of closed-door meeting, players refuse to talk

    Apr 21, 2012, 10:28 PM EDT

    bobby v reuters

    The home clubhouse at Fenway Park was not the most relaxing of places Saturday evening after the Red Sox blew a 9-0 lead to the Yankees in an eventual 15-9 loss, falling to 4-10 on the year. “I think we’ve hit bottom,” first-year Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said in his postgame chat. “That’s what…

  24. Clay Buchholz gives up five homers in loss to Yankees

    Apr 20, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

    Clay Buchholz, Eric Chavez

    Two pitchers have given up five homers in a game this season. Both have been Red Sox. Clay Buchholz joined Josh Beckett in the exclusive club Friday, surrendering five solo homers in a 6-2 loss to the Yankees on the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park’s opening. On the plus side, Buchholz’s start was pretty good for…

    Curtis Granderson

    Curtis Granderson had three homers in four innings and then singled in his remaining two at-bats Thursday as the Yankees topped the Twins 7-6. Granderson, who entered with three homers on the year, took Anthony Swarzak deep in the first and second innings and then launched his third homer off reliever Jeff Gray in the…
