Kevin Youkilis

    This is an interesting bit of inside information. As reported Saturday by Jack Magruder of FOX Sports Arizona, the Red Sox asked for outfielder Gerardo Parra from the D’Backs when shopping third baseman Kevin Youkilis earlier this month. Parra is only 25 years old, making close to the league minimum, an elite defensive outfielder and an important…

    Strasmas made its way to Fenway Park for the first time last night, as Stephen Strasburg allowed two runs over six innings in a 7-4 win over the Red Sox. Strasburg, who was pitching on the two year anniversary of his major league debut, tied a season-high with 13 strikeouts and threw a career-high 119…

  3. Dodgers, Diamondbacks, Phillies all have some interest in Youkilis

    Kevin Youkilis

    Is Kevin Youkilis on the block?  The anonymous sources say yes, the GM says no.  But whatever the Red Sox’ intentions are, Jon Heyman reports that there are three teams who are interested in Youk:  The Dodgers, Diamondbacks and Phillies. Talks are “very preliminary,” he says, but they always start that way.  And there wouldn’t…

  4. Brett Lawrie needs to play a little smarter

    Jun 3, 2012, 2:43 AM EST

    Brett Lawrie

    The hustle is great, but Brett Lawrie‘s tendency to play baseball like a bull in a china shop has hurt the Jays from time to time. Of course, the incident that led to last month’s four-game suspension was the most notable occasion. Saturday’s showing was none too impressive, though. With two outs in the eighth…

  5. Ben Cherington denies the Youkilis trade reports

    Jun 1, 2012, 2:02 PM EST

    Boston Red Sox v Tampa Bay Rays

    Danny Knobler of CBS Sports.com reported today that the Red Sox are saying they’re definitely looking to trade Kevin Youkilis. GM Ben Cherington, however, is denying that: General manager Ben Cherington denied a report that the Red Sox were telling teams they “definitely intend to trade” Kevin Youkilis. “That’s inaccurate,” Cherington e-mailed WEEI.com Friday afternoon. “Some…

  6. Report: The Red Sox “definitely intend” to trade Kevin Youkilis

    Boston Red Sox Kevin Youkilis bats against the Minnesota Twins during the seventh inning of their MLB American League baseball game at Fenway Park in Boston

    UPDATE: Now Reds GM Ben Cherington denies the report. Color me skeptical. 11:34 AM: We heard some rumblings a week or two ago that the Red Sox could conceivably trade Kevin Youkilis. But this sounds like more than mere consideration: Red Sox are telling teams they definitely intend to trade Youkilis. — DKnobler (@DKnobler) June 1,…

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

    Jun 1, 2012, 10:47 AM EST

    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…

  8. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 31, 2012, 5:45 AM EST

    Seattle Mariners v Texas Rangers

    Mariners 21, Rangers 8: Look, we can point to Justin Smoak driving in a half dozen runs, Jesus Montero nearly hitting for the cycle or any number of other things as being the cause of this bloodbath. But the fact is, Derek Holland shaved his mustache the other day, and there is likely a causal…

  9. Adrian Gonzalez will continue to play right field

    May 23, 2012, 10:00 AM EST

    adrian gonzalez ap

    Bobby Valentine was on WEEI in Boston this morning and said that he plans to start Adrian Gonzalez in right field again today with Kevin Youkilis covering first.  That will mark Gonzalez’s fourth game in right this year. Obviously not ideal, but given that the lifespan of a Red Sox outfielder this year is shorter…

  10. Red Sox lineup: Adrian Gonzalez in RF, Kevin Youkilis at 1B, Will Middlebrooks at 3B

    May 22, 2012, 4:16 PM EST

    Boston Red Sox v Philadelphia Phillies

    With six outfielders on the disabled list and Kevin Youkilis coming off the shelf the Red Sox have gotten creative for tonight’s game against the Orioles, shifting Adrian Gonzalez to right field so Youkilis can play first base and Will Middlebrooks can remain at third base. Gonzalez, Youkilis, and Middlebrooks are batting 4-5-6 in Boston’s…

  11. Cody Ross out indefinitely with fractured bone in left foot

    May 21, 2012, 5:12 PM EST

    Jose Molina, Cody Ross

    Cody Ross, who’s been playing every day in the Red Sox’s outfield because of injuries to Carl Crawford and Jacoby Ellsbury, is now joining them on the disabled list with a fractured bone in his left foot. There’s no timetable yet for his return, but manager Bobby Valentine indicated to reporters that the Red Sox…

  12. Olney: the Red Sox are “headed down that path” to trade Kevin Youkilis

    May 16, 2012, 4:30 PM EST

    Boston Red Sox Kevin Youkilis bats against the Minnesota Twins during the seventh inning of their MLB American League baseball game at Fenway Park in Boston

    Buster Olney was on WEEI radio this afternoon and, based on his conversations with some anonymous executives, he thinks the Red Sox and Kevin Youkilis will part ways this summer: “I’ve talked with a number of executives at other teams this week, because this looks like it’s headed down that path.” … Olney said that other…

  13. Kevin Youkilis to begin rehab stint tomorrow at Triple-A

    May 15, 2012, 5:17 PM EST

    Boston Red Sox v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Kevin Youkilis‘ minor-league rehab assignment will start tomorrow at Triple-A, according to Joseph McDonald of ESPN Boston. Youkilis, who’s been out since April 27 with a back injury and struggled before being shut down, is scheduled to be in Pawtucket’s lineup at designated hitter and get three at-bats. Barring a setback he’ll then play defense…

  14. Kevin Youkilis ramps up his rehab

    May 14, 2012, 9:40 AM EST

    Boston Red Sox v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Kevin Youkilis took some steps toward returning to the Red Sox over the weekend. He threw some on Friday and yesterday ramped things up by swinging the bat and taking grounders.  He’ll need some rehab games in the minors before coming back, but looks to be on the road back to Boston. Which will be…

  15. Will Middlebrooks pulled from game with hamstring tightness

    May 8, 2012, 9:20 PM EST

    middlebrooks ap

    From Tim Britton of the Providence Journal comes word that Red Sox rookie Will Middlebrooks had to be lifted from Tuesday’s game against the Royals after experiencing left hamstring tightness while running the bases in the second inning. Middlebrooks finished the evening 1-for-1 with a double and is now batting .409 with a 1.435 OPS…

  16. Red Sox rookie Will Middlebrooks smashes two more homers in win

    May 8, 2012, 12:37 AM EST

    Will Middlebrooks

    The Red Sox may not be very good, but they certainly are resilient. Bouncing back from their second horrible loss of the season — a 17-inning game against the Orioles in which Chris Davis got the victory — the Red Sox lit up Jonathan Sanchez on their way to an 11-5 victory over the Royals…

  17. That was quick: Red Sox send Jose Iglesias back to minors

    May 3, 2012, 1:50 PM EST

    iglesias wide

    Called up Tuesday because the Red Sox needed some infield depth with Kevin Youkilis hurting but still on the active roster, Jose Iglesias is reportedly being sent back to Triple-A without getting into a game. Youkilis was placed on the disabled list yesterday, with prospect Will Middlebrooks coming up from Triple-A to replace him at…

  18. Red Sox put Kevin Youkilis on DL, call up Will Middlebrooks

    May 2, 2012, 5:02 PM EST

    Boston Red Sox Photo Day

    UPDATE: Still no word on the official roster move involved, but manager Bobby Valentine just said on WEEI radio that Middlebrooks will be in the starting lineup tonight. UPDATE #2: Youkilis has been placed on the DL after saying he was at least 3-4 more days from being game ready, leaving Middlebrooks as the new…

  19. Red Sox call up prospect Jose Iglesias for infield depth

    May 1, 2012, 4:46 PM EST

    iglesias wide

    So far at least Kevin Youkilis has avoided the disabled list despite being out of the lineup tonight for the third straight game with a back injury, but in the meantime the Red Sox have called up shortstop prospect Jose Iglesias to provide some infield depth. Youkilis is active but not available, so Boston demoted…

  20. Kevin Youkilis out of Red Sox lineup for third straight game

    May 1, 2012, 3:16 PM EST

    Boston Red Sox v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    For the third straight game the Red Sox will be without Kevin Youkilis, as the third baseman is sitting out tonight’s matchup versus the A’s with a sore back. Youkilis was initially in the lineup yesterday before being a late scratch and barring an appearance off the bench tonight he will have played just 18…

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

    Apr 26, 2012, 10:15 PM EST

    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.…

  22. Bobby Valentine is a convenient scapegoat, but he’s not what’s ailin’ the Sox

    Apr 23, 2012, 8:53 AM EST

    Bobby Valentine

    Well, not totally anyway. He has his share of the blame — some odd bullpen choices in the past week for one — but the “Bobby V has killed the Red Sox” stuff is probably out of hand at the moment. And, as Rob Bradford notes, the reason is pretty understandable. It’s Boston, and this…

  23. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 19, 2012, 5:45 AM EST

    Minnesota Twins v New York Yankees

    Twins 6, Yankees 5: Justin Morneau hit two homers. That’s four homers in six games, which hopefully means that Morneau is back to his mashing ways. Jason Marquis, who missed most of spring training when his daughter was seriously injured in a bicycle accident, made his first ever start in Yankee Stadium and got the…

  24. Bobby Valentine is really not having a stellar 24 hours

    Apr 16, 2012, 1:28 PM EST

    Daniel Bard

    First that dustup with Kevin Youkilis and now some bad in-game managing is making for a pretty crappy day for Bobby V. Daniel Bard and James Shields were locked in a 0-0 pitchers’ duel. Bard had been effective all day, but effectively wild too, walking several. In the seventh inning Bard, already over 100 pitches…

  25. Kevin Youkilis’ agent weighs in

    Apr 16, 2012, 12:30 PM EST

    Boston Red Sox v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    You will not be surprised to hear that Kevin Youkilis‘ agent, Joe Bick, was asked about the Bobby Valentine comments: “I will not dignify his quotes by responding to something so far off base on so many different levels” Well, that is a response, but I suppose we’ll that go.
