    Will Middlebrooks; Mike Napoli

    Third baseman Will Middlebrooks hit three homers and doubled Sunday in Boston’s 13-0 rout in Toronto. The 24-year-old Middlebrooks became the first player to hit three homers in a game this year, and he’s the youngest player to accomplish the feat since the Pirates’ Andrew McCutchen on Aug. 1, 2009.  He was the first member of the…

  2. Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera help lead Yankees to first win of season

    Apr 4, 2013, 10:01 PM EST

    Andy Pettitte

    It felt like old times tonight in the Bronx, as Andy Pettitte tossed eight innings of one-ball and Mariano Rivera notched the save as the Yankees topped the Red Sox 4-2 for the team’s first victory of the 2013 season. Pettitte was in control for most of the night, scattering eight hits while striking out…

    For the Yankees to have much of a chance this year, they’re going to have to rack up their runs without hitting a bunch of homers. Their biggest rivals are showing them how its done. On a bitterly cold Wednesday night in the Bronx, the Red Sox amassed 11 singles and two doubles to beat…

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2013 season. Up next: The Boston Red Sox. The Big Question: will the offseason spending spree prove worth it? Coming off a disastrous season…

    It was easy to think the worst when Will Middlebrooks left Wednesday’s Grapefruit League game after he experienced pain in his right wrist on a check swing, but fortunately for the Red Sox, it turned out to be a false alarm. Middlebrooks was examined by a hand specialist, who determined that the flash of pain…

  6. Jonny Gomes requires three stitches in knee after banging into outfield fence

    Feb 28, 2013, 7:02 PM EST

    Jonny Gomes

    This was understandably lost in the concern regarding Will Middlebrooks‘ wrist, but Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston passes along word that Jonny Gomes required three stitches in his left knee after he banged into the left field fence during last night’s game against the Orioles. It appears Gomes suffered the injury when he made an…

    Will Middlebrooks had Red Sox fans freaking out yesterday when he injured his right wrist on a swing, was looked at on the field by trainers, and slammed his batting helmet to the ground before exiting the game. Middlebrooks missed the final two months of last season after fracturing the same wrist, but this time…

    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…

    Mike Napoli was diagnosed with avascular necrosis in both hips during his pre-signing physical with the Red Sox, but he hasn’t experienced any problems related to the disease up to this point and received a rave review Saturday afternoon from new teammate and offseason workout partner Will Middlebrooks. “Not at all,” the Red Sox third baseman told WEEI…

  10. Report: Red Sox could trade Jacoby Ellsbury, re-sign Cody Ross

    Dec 4, 2012, 8:25 PM EST

    Jacoby Ellsbury

    Upside, shmupside. Sources told the Boston Globe’s Peter Abraham that the Red Sox are considering trading Jacoby Ellsbury and re-signing Cody Ross to play right field, with the newly signed Shane Victorino taking over in center field. Ellsbury, the runner-up for AL MVP honors in 2011, is a free agent after the season and is…

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

    Dec 3, 2012, 11:43 AM EST

    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.…

  12. Red Sox hire manager John Farrell away from the Blue Jays, send Mike Aviles to Toronto

    From Sean McAdam of CSN New England comes word that the Red Sox have hired current Blue Jays skipper John Farrell to be their next manager. Farrell has already worked out a contract with Boston that will run through 2015. Compensation for Toronto will be announced in the next couple days. The Red Sox interviewed…

    Torri Hunter

    37-year-old Torii Hunter is tired and aching after taking his third straight 0-for-3 and getting hit by a pitch Sunday in the final game of the Angels’ six-game road trip.

  15. Updated: Where would the Red Sox go minus Gonzalez, Crawford, Beckett?

    Aug 24, 2012, 8:55 PM EST

    Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez

    The deal isn’t yet official, but it looks like Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto are all Los Angeles bound in exchange for four minimum-salaried players and  free-agent-to-be James Loney. That would cut $58.25 million in 2013 salaries from Boston’s payroll and leave the Red Sox committed to only four players for…

  16. Red Sox activate Vicente Padilla from disabled list

    Aug 21, 2012, 4:48 PM EST

    Vicente Padilla

    Vicente Padilla is back from the disabled list following a minimum 15-day stay, rejoining the Red Sox’s bullpen after missing time with a biceps injury. To make room for Padilla’s return the Red Sox sent Danny Valencia to Triple-A after initially calling him up to help sub for the injured Will Middlebrooks at third base.…

  17. Jason Varitek for Red Sox manager

    Aug 14, 2012, 5:55 PM EST

    Jason Varitek

    I tried this nine months ago with little support. Let’s see if it flies better now. Terry Francona lost the Red Sox clubhouse. Bobby Valentine never had it in the first place. What the Red Sox seem to want is one of their own running the team, and who is more one of their own…

  18. Orioles’ Manny Machado homers his way to history in first four games

    Aug 13, 2012, 4:21 PM EST

    Manny Machado AP

    Based on his modest numbers in the minors it seemed like a questionable decision for the Orioles to promote Manny Machado from Double-A to the majors just a month after his 20th birthday, but there’s nothing questionable about his first taste of the big leagues. Machado went 2-for-4 with a triple in his MLB debut,…

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

    Aug 12, 2012, 1:39 PM EST

    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…

    Clay Buchholz tossed a two-hitter tonight as part of a 3-2 win over the Indians, but the Red Sox were dealt another tough blow on the injury front in the process. Will Middlebrooks left the game in the top of the ninth inning after being hit in the right wrist by a pitch. The Red…

    Rockford Files

    Tigers 6, Yankees 5: Miguel Cabrera homered for the third straight game. The dude is good. The Tigers have won six straight and, with the White Sox loss, pull to within a half game. Speaking of the Tigers, I found out last night that one of the people I hung out with at Comerica Park…

  22. Detective Sam Holbrook botches the call

    Jul 20, 2012, 7:35 PM EST

    Sam Holbrook

    Sam Holbrook may have had the right idea, but it just didn’t do him any good. In the first inning of Friday’s Blue Jays-Red Sox game, Edwin Encarnacion hit a grounder to third with Colby Rasmus on third base. Will Middlebrooks decided to throw home to try to retire Rasmus on the play, and though…

    Kevin Youkilis‘ return to Boston has so far consisted of four hits in two games, including a homer and two doubles, and the Red Sox castoff is now batting .319 with four homers, a .965 OPS, and 18 RBIs in 18 games since being traded to the White Sox. It’s early, of course, but he’s…
