  1. What on earth are the Royals doing now?

    Feb 1, 2014, 4:12 PM EDT

    Bruce Chen

    When the Royals re-signed Bruce Chen to a one-year, $4.25 million contract this week, it was generally met with tepid approval. One could argue that he’s 90 percent of the pitcher Jason Vargas is for half of the salary and one-quarter the commitment. So, that’s not bad. But then came the fallout. First, it was…

  2. Jedd Gyorko and Yonder Alonso activated from DL, in starting lineup

    Jul 12, 2013, 7:05 PM EDT

    Jedd Gyorko

    The Padres gave their fans some good news today, activating second baseman Jedd Gyorko and first baseman Yonder Alonso from the disabled list. Both are in tonight’s starting lineup against the Giants. Gyorko had been on the disabled list since June 10 with a strained right groin. He had safely hit in 13 of 14…

  3. Padres activate All-Star candidate Everth Cabrera from DL

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:05 PM EDT

    Everth Cabrera

    The 40-46 Padres, still surprisingly in the thick of things in the tight-knit NL West at 4.5 games behind, will get a boost in the lineup tonight as Everth Cabrera returns from the disabled list, per the team’s official Twitter. In a related move, 23-year-old right-hander Burch Smith, sitting on an 11.37 ERA in 12.2…

  4. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 21, 2013, 6:55 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Atlanta Braves

    Mets 4, Braves 3: Good news: two solo homers for David Wright and five scoreless innings from the bullpen. Bad news: The reason the pen was needed for five innings is that Jon Neise had to leave the game with shoulder problems. Braves news: ugh, you guys have looked positively crappy of late. Tigers 4,…

  5. MLB stolen base leader Everth Cabrera goes on the DL

    Jun 19, 2013, 2:20 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v San Diego Padres

    Everth Cabrera is in the midst of a breakout year as the Padres’ starting shortstop, hitting .305 with an .800 OPS and MLB-leading 31 stolen bases in 69 games, but now he’s headed to the disabled list. Cabrera strained his hamstring Sunday while attempting a stolen base and the Padres have classified the injury as…

  6. Everth Cabrera suffers hamstring injury

    Jun 16, 2013, 9:25 PM EDT

    Everth Cabrera

    Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera, currently enjoying a breakout season, suffered a left hamstring injury in today’s game against the Diamondbacks. He was replaced defensively in the top of the ninth by Pedro Ciriaco after going 3-for-4. The Union-Times suggests Cabrera will likely go on the disabled list along with outfielder Carlos Quentin. Cabrera is hitting…

  7. Padres acquire Pedro Ciriaco from Red Sox

    Jun 14, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Pedro Ciriaco

    Peter Gammons of MLB.com reports that the Red Sox have traded Pedro Ciriaco to the Padres after designating the infielder for assignment earlier this week. Boston will get a player to be named later or cash in exchange for Ciriaco, who struggled offensively and committed a bunch of errors defensively this season after a solid…

  8. Red Sox activate Will Middlebrooks, designate Pedro Ciriaco for assignment

    Jun 10, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Will Middlebrooks Getty

    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…

  9. Red Sox thrash Rangers pitchers, then go cold against a hitter

    Jun 4, 2013, 10:40 PM EDT

    Jackie Bradley

    The Red Sox racked up 17 runs while scoring in each of the first seven innings against the Rangers at Fenway on Tuesday and only to had to add one more against position player David Murphy in the eighth to become the 14th team in major league history to score in every inning of a…

    May 19, 2013, 11:36 AM EDT

    From MLB.com’s Evan Drellich comes word that Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew is out of the starting lineup again on Sunday against the Twins due to lingering discomfort in his lower back. Pedro Ciriaco will get the start in his place. Drew also sat out of Saturday’s game, but he is not believed to be…

  11. David Ortiz hits two homers, drives in six as Red Sox drub the Twins

    May 18, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    david ortiz getty

    Even at the age of 37 and less than a year separated from an Achilles injury, David Ortiz can still hit with the best of them. The slugger entered tonight’s game against the Twins with a .999 OPS, including five home runs and 23 RBI in 98 trips to the plate. Since joining the club…

  12. Stephen Drew will see concussion specialist in Pittsburgh

    Mar 18, 2013, 5:17 PM EDT

    stephen drew getty

    Stephen Drew remains sidelined by post-concussion symptoms and Evan Drellich of MLB.com reports that the Red Sox shortstop will travel to Pittsburgh to be examined by a concussion specialist. Drew suffered a concussion on March 7 when he was hit on the helmet by a pitch, and his status for Opening Day is very much…

    Feb 27, 2013, 8:20 PM EDT

    middlebrooks getty

    Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks was removed from Wednesday night’s Grapefruit League game against the Orioles because of what is currently being termed “right wrist soreness.” Middlebrooks appeared to injure the wrist while taking a swing at a high-and-tight fastball in the first inning. He met with trainers near the Red Sox dugout and…

  14. Red Sox lineup a whole lot deeper with Mike Napoli in the middle

    Dec 3, 2012, 11:43 AM EDT

    Mike Napoli

    Mike Napoli to Boston has long seemed like destiny. That he’s been such a roaring success at Fenway is part of it: Napoli has hit .306/.397/.710 with seven homers in 62 lifetime at-bats in Boston. The Red Sox initially tried to acquire Napoli in 2010, when the Angels weighed parting with him before the deadline.…

  15. The Orioles are probably gonna be a bit miffed at the Red Sox today

    Oct 1, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    mystery man

    The Orioles and Yankees are locked in pitched battle for the AL East. And this is the lineup the Red Sox are rolling out against the Yankees tonight: Pedro Ciriaco, 2B Daniel Nava LF Cody Ross RF Mauro Gomez 1B Ryan Lavarnway DH Jarrod Saltalamacchia C Danny Valencia 3B Che-Hsuan Lin CF Jose Iglesias SS…

  16. Bobby Valentine goes to pinch-hitter with 2-2 count

    Sep 16, 2012, 4:41 PM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    Bobby Valentine’s quotes and actions have gotten more erratic by the day. If he isn’t complaining about Alfredo Aceves and the rest of his “weakest roster ever,” he’s making a bizarre in-game choice, like inserting pinch-hitters mid-at-bat. That’s what he did in the seventh inning of a scoreless game today against the Blue Jays. Valentine…

  17. Red Sox play spoiler; Yankees, Orioles tied again

    Sep 11, 2012, 10:51 PM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia, Robinson Cano

    Boston’s two remaining stars did their thing Tuesday, and the AL East is again all knotted at the top. With the Orioles having already topped the Rays 9-2, the Red Sox got a game-winning single from Jacoby Ellsbury in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Yankees 4-3. Ellsbury ended up 4-for-5 on his…

  18. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 27, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Cliff Lee

    I looked at the schedule as I sat down to write this and noted that, even including the postponed game, there were only 14 games yesterday. Rays-A’s played Thursday-Saturday, leaving yesterday off to avoid conflicts with the Republican National Convention. Guess you couldn’t expect the RNC to compromise, so … Anyway, it was weird and…

  19. Breaking down the Red Sox-Dodgers megadeal

    Aug 24, 2012, 8:32 PM EDT

    Adrian Gonzalez

    If FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi is correct, the Red Sox and Dodgers have agreed to the following nine-player deal: To L.A.: Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett, Nick Punto To Boston: Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster, Jerry Sands, Ivan De Jesus, James Loney It’s not official yet, as the Red Sox still need Crawford and…

  20. Angels beat the Red Sox in the stupidest game of 2012

    Aug 24, 2012, 12:08 AM EDT

    Pedro Ciriaco

    Craziest? Wildest? No, I’m sticking with stupidest. The Angels edged the Red Sox 14-13 in 10 innings Thursday. Some highlights: – Boston blew a six-run lead by giving up eight runs in the top of the third – The Angels put together said eight-run inning without the benefit of an extra-base hit. They did, however,…

  21. Will Middlebrooks doesn’t need surgery for fractured wrist

    Aug 12, 2012, 1:39 PM EDT

    will middlebrooks getty

    Here’s a dose of positive news for the Red Sox. Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports that third baseman Will Middlebrooks “should not need to have surgery” on his broken right wrist because doctors diagnosed the fracture as non-displaced. He’s still probably done for the remainder of the 2012 season, but the wrist should…

  22. David Ortiz unlikely to return from DL when eligible

    Jul 30, 2012, 2:44 PM EDT

    David Ortiz

    David Ortiz was supposed to do some jogging and hitting prior to last night’s game at Yankee Stadium, but he canceled those plans due to heel soreness and now Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports that the Red Sox designated hitter is “unlikely” to come off the disabled list when eligible Wednesday. Ortiz is sidelined…

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

    Jul 30, 2012, 6:06 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 6, Phillies 2: Pretty good day for me yesterday. I took Mookie and Carlo to an amusement park and the Braves swept the Phillies. All I needed as a nice steak or something to cap the day and it would have been perfection.  Only the Astros, Rockies and Cubs have a bigger division deficit than the…

  24. It’s all about Pedro Ciriaco as Red Sox nip Yankees

    Jul 30, 2012, 12:25 AM EDT

    Pedro Ciriaco

    Where has Pedro Ciriaco been all season? The answer, unfortunately for the Red Sox, is buried behind Nick Punto. But Ciriaco, given a chance to shine because of Dustin Pedroia‘s thumb injury, came through again Sunday, making another outstanding defensive play at shortstop and singling in the go-ahead run in the 10th in a 3-2…

  25. Tracking the non-tenders: Joe Saunders, Luke Scott, Hong-Chih Kuo

    Dec 13, 2011, 12:54 AM EDT

    Luke Scott

    Here’s the official list of players non-tendered prior to the Monday midnight deadline: American League Baltimore: OF/DH Luke Scott, LHP Jo-Jo Reyes, RHP Willie Eyre Scott went from hitting .284/.368/.535 during an excellent 2010 season to .220/.301/.402 in 209 at-bats during a 2011 season shortened by shoulder surgery. The Orioles could re-sign him for significantly less…
