Jayson Stark reports that the Astros have been calling teams in an effort to acquire a first baseman. Stark says that among the potential targets are Mike Carp of the Red Sox, John Mayberry of the Phillies, and Tyler Moore of the Nationals. No word if they’d be in on Ike Davis, who we just noted…

Mike Carp recently offered to learn third base for the Red Sox, a move not entirely based in altruism as it would give the left-hander some much-needed playing time. Carp had a great 2013 for the Red Sox, posting an .885 OPS in 243 plate appearances, 215 of them against right-handed pitchers. But there’s no…

The Red Sox have avoided arbitration with reliever Junichi Tazawa, first baseman/outfielder Mike Carp, and infielder Jonathan Herrera, WEEI’s Alex Speier reports. All three deals are non-guaranteed. Tazawa, in his first year of arbitration eligibility, will take home $1.275 million on a one-year deal. He finished 2013 with a 3.16 ERA and a six-to-one strikeout-to-walk…

With Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, Stephen Drew and Jarrod Saltalamacchia all filing for free agency, the world champion Red Sox would seem to have a whole lot of flexibility this winter. Even without signing any replacements, they have a perfectly legitimate 25-man roster ready to go: SS: Xander Bogaerts: $500,000 RF: Shane Victorino: $13 million…

David Ortiz seems to be the only consistent source of offense for the Red Sox thus far in the World Series. He led off the fifth inning of Game 4 with a double to right-center, their first extra-base hit of the night against Cardinals starter Lance Lynn. Lynn started to unravel, walking Jonny Gomes, and…

The Red Sox were held hitless through 8 1/3 innings in Saturday night’s 1-0 ALCS Game 1 loss to the Tigers and will be looking for much more offense in Game 2 on Sunday night at Fenway Park. But that’s going to be easier said than done because the likely American League Cy Young Award…
