    According to Juan C. Rodriguez of the Sun Sentinel, the Marlins will be contacting the league office after the Red Sox declined to bring any of their established regulars to Palm Beach for Thursday’s spring training game. While teams are supposed to bring at least four “regulars” to road spring games, the rule has always…

    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…

  3. Red Sox hit eight homers, destroy Tigers 20-4

    Sep 4, 2013, 10:45 PM EDT

    David Ortiz

    The Red Sox overshadowed David Ortiz‘s 2,000th career hit Wednesday, tying their franchise record with eight homers in a 20-4 drubbing of the Tigers. Ortiz was a big part of the barrage, hitting two of the homers. His 2,000th hit, sandwiched in between the homers, was a double. Ortiz became the 275th player, at least…

    Daniel Bard’s hopes of rejoining the Red Sox sometime in September have just been tarnished. According to beat writer Alex Speier of WEEI.com, the right-hander was designated for assignment on Sunday morning to clear a 40-man roster spot for new outfielder Quintin Berry. The Red Sox also added catcher Ryan Lavarnway, right-handed reliever Rubby De…

  5. The Red Sox to call up top prospect Xander Bogaerts

    Aug 19, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    Xander Bogaerts

    After last night’s exhausting and, for Boston, dispiriting game against the Yankees, the Red Sox decided to make a lot of moves. One stands out above the others: they plan to call up top prospect Xander Bogaerts some time today, reports Alex Speier of WEEI. Bogaerts, only 20 years-old, has hit .299/.389/.481 with 15 homers,…

  6. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:58 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Pirates 4, Marlins 3: A walkoff homer for Josh Harrison — the utility infielder if you didn’t know — gave this one to Pittsburgh, as the Pirates show no inclination to give up first place. Andrew McCutchen had a fantastic diving catch to save at least one run in the seventh when the game was tied and…

  7. Blown call from Jerry Meals, bad baseball doom Red Sox in loss

    Jul 30, 2013, 12:19 AM EDT

    Jerry Meals

    Make no mistake: the Red Sox played some pretty terrible baseball in losing 2-1 to the Rays on Monday. Still, a blown call at home plate in the bottom of the eighth cost them the tying run and, for that, Jerry Meals was to blame. Here’s the video: Meals admitted after the game that he…

  8. 2013 MLB Draft: Round 3 notes – BoSox get steal in Jon Denney

    Jun 7, 2013, 2:08 PM EDT

    Kent Emanuel

    - With all night to think about it, the Astros made North Carolina left-hander Kent Emanuel the first pick off the board Friday and 74th overall selection. That splits the difference over where MLB.com (69th) and ESPN’s Keith Law (82nd) had him ranked. Emanuel is a 6-foot-4 lefty with a decent three-pitch arsenal, but command…

  9. David Ross returns from concussion, rejoins Red Sox

    May 24, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays v Boston Red Sox

    David Ross, who’s missed the past two weeks with post-concussion symptoms, has been cleared to return to the Red Sox and will be active for tonight’s game. That means Ryan Lavarnway is headed back to Triple-A after filling in for Ross as Jarrod Saltalamacchia‘s backup. Ross played in one minor-league rehab game at Double-A yesterday,…

  10. 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.…

  11. Mike Napoli meeting with Red Sox this weekend and Rangers next week

    Mike Napoli Getty

    We heard earlier this week that Mike Napoli met with the Mariners, but he has at least two more stops on his itinerary in the coming days. Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that Napoli is meeting with the Red Sox this weekend while Jim Duquette of MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM hears that he…

  12. Even with David Ross, the Red Sox are still looking at Mike Napoli

    Nov 12, 2012, 9:14 AM EDT

    napoli getty square

    Over the weekend, Matthew sketched out a way the Red Sox could still use Mike Napoli despite the fact that they signed David Ross and still have Ryan Lavarnway and Jarrod Saltalamacchia hanging around.  Rob Bradford of WEEI reports that that option is definitely still on the table. Indeed, his column today seems like an advocacy piece for…

  13. David Ross addition gives Red Sox plenty of flexibility

    Nov 10, 2012, 9:48 PM EDT

    Jarrod Saltalamacchia

    The Red Sox are likely keeping an open mind about trading Jarrod Saltalamacchia, their strikeout-prone starting catcher, after adding David Ross on a two-year, $6.2 million contract Saturday. Ross was briefly a member of the Red Sox back in 2008, going 1-for-8 for the club. He finished that season with Boston after the Reds cut…

    Nov 10, 2012, 8:37 AM EDT

    David Ross Getty

    UPDATE: Rosenthal reports that Ross will get a total of $6.2 million over the two years. It’s well-deserved raise for Ross, who just finished up a two-year, $3.25 million extension with the Braves. 8:37 AM: Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Red Sox have signed catcher David Ross to a two-year contract, pending a…

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

    Orioles Tolleson, Machado, and Betemit celebrate defeating the Blue Jays during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Orioles 12, Blue Jays 0: Zach Britton throwing seven shutout innings + Mark Reynolds driving in four + Yankees losing = First place for the Orioles dudes. Rays 5, Yankees 2: This is that Yankees loss I just mentioned. Freddy Garcia allowed five runs over five. I know this isn’t the case, but as I sit…

  17. 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…
