Lester leaves Thursday’s start early with “jammed hip”

By Jeff Louderback After allowing back-to-back singles to open the eighth inning in Thursday night’s game against Toronto, Jon Lester departed with a 3-0 count to Emilio Bonifacio. Jarrod Saltalamacchia called out the trainer and Red Sox manager John Farrell, and Lester limped off the mound with what the club called a jammed hip. “I [...]

Red Sox pummel Chien-Ming Wang in 7-4 victory over Blue Jays

By Jeff Louderback In one inning – the second, to be exact – the Boston Red Sox scored all seven runs and held on for a 7-4 victory over Toronto in the opener of a four-game series against the Blue Jays at Fenway Park. The Red Sox reached former Yankees right-hander Chien-Ming Wang for seven [...]

It’s as easy as 1-2-3 for Uehara in economical save

By Jeff Louderback He doesn’t enter to a rowdy rock song and overpower batters with mid-90s heat. Actually, his fast ball rarely touches 90, and he records out with location and deception, pounding the strike zone and consistently getting ahead in the count. After a season marked by the wildness and ineffectiveness of Joel Hanrahan [...]

Your Red Sox ace, John Lackey

By Jeff Louderback This is the John Lackey that the Red Sox expected when they signed him to a five-year, $80 million deal before the 2010 season. At a time when Clay Buchholz is on the disabled list and Jon Lester is struggling, Lackey has emerged as the staff ace, resembling the durable pitcher who [...]

Presenting the ideal Red Sox bullpen (hint, not the current version as it is)

By Jeff Louderback In three games for the Red Sox this season, Pedro Beato has not allowed a run. His latest scoreless frame was delivered last night in Boston’s 11-4 trouncing of the Colorado Rockies. Beato’s reward? He was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket to make room for Clayton Mortensen, who was activated from the disabled [...]

Buchholz setback further illustrated Red Sox questionable decisions with medical issues

By Jeff Louderback Based on the myriad of injuries the team has incurred over the past four seasons, and how those ailments have been addressed, it is warranted for media and fans alike to respond cynically when the Red Sox downplay any discomfort that a player is experiencing. Clay Buchholz is a prime example. The [...]

Could Iglesias win AL Rookie of the Year, qualify for a batting title?

By Jeff Louderback On the same day that Will Middlebrooks was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket to work on his plate discipline and regain his confidence, Jose Iglesias was 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and two runs in Boston’s 11-4 rout of the Colorado Rockies. Though Iglesias appears to be the long-term solution at shortstop, [...]

Dempster delivers again in 11-4 Red Sox win

By Jeff Louderback With ace Clay Buchholz languishing on the disabled list and Jon Lester pitching like a lackluster No. 5 arm, the Red Sox desperately need veteran right-handers Ryan Dempster and John Lackey to provide stability to a shaky rotation. Dempster continued to deliver on Tuesday with six strong innings against Colorado, limiting the [...]

Morales to the DL, Beato up today, Mortensen slated for tomorrow

By Jeff Louderback With Franklin Morales placed on the 15-day disabled list today, Pedro Beato will be available in the Red Sox bullpen for tonight’s game against Colorado, and then he will be optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket and Clayton Mortensen will be activated from the DL for Wednesday’s contest with the Rockies. The Red Sox [...]

Middlebrooks optioned to Pawtucket, Snyder called up

By Jeff Louderback In time, Will Middlebrooks will likely emerge as a productive middle of the order bat for the Red Sox. For now, he will work on regaining his confidence and improving his plate approach at Triple-A Pawtucket. The 24-year-old third baseman was optioned to Pawtucket on Tuesday so he can get regular playing [...]
