Sox Future Rests with Prospects

Daniel Nava, Ryan Kalish, Ryan Lavarnway, and Jose Iglesias are all up-and-coming prospects in the Boston Red Sox farm system. While it may not seem realistic in the near future, the fact remains that the future of the Boston Red Sox will rest with prospects either currently on the team or down in the minor leagues.  Multiple positions are waiting to be filled by younger talent...

Daniel Bard Too Concerned With Perfection, Daisuke Matsuzaka Could Be Replacement in Rotation (Video)

Daniel Bard was demoted to the minor leagues on Tuesday, after a dismal outing in Toronto on Sunday afternoon. Bard may need some time to figure out his mechanics and turn things around. In the mean time, Daisuke Matsuzaka has looked strong on the mound in Pawtuckets in recent weeks and could be the replacement in the Red Sox rotation. NESN's Jim Rice feels that Bard is too concerned...

Dustin Pedroia Taking Risk By Trying Play With Torn Adductor in Thumb, But Has Proven to Have High Pain Threshold

Dustin Pedroia is eyeing a return to the diamond on Tuesday. The Red Sox second baseman has been shelved since May 28, when he re-aggravated a thumb injury only to learn later in the week that he suffered a torn adductor on his right thumb. But after the team's 5-1 loss to the Blue Jays on Sunday, Pedroia told reporters in Toronto that he intended to return on Tuesday, when the...

Dustin Pedroia Will Sport a Customized Splint to Protect Thumb, Feels 'Perfect' and Has 'No Reservations' About Playing

BOSTON –– Dustin Pedroia will finally give it go for the Red Sox. After missing six games with a torn adductor muscle in his right thumb, the Red Sox second baseman is returning to lineup against the Orioles as he dons a customized splint to prevent further damage. Before Tuesday's game, Bobby Valentine consulted Pedroia one more time to ensure his safety. Less than two hours...

Alfredo Aceves Wears Pirate-Themed Snuggie in Bullpen During Red Sox-Orioles Game (Photo)

For a relief pitcher, the early innings of a game are spent two ways: staying warm or getting warm. On Tuesday night, Alfredo Aceves found an interesting way to do the former. The Red Sox closer was spotted in the bullpen wearing a pirate-themed Snuggie or blanket of some kind, decorated with the Jolly Roger's trademark skull and crossbones look. Check it out in the screenshot...

Daniel Nava, Kelly Shoppach Lead Red Sox Who Are Looking to Keep Up Heat Against Orioles

Editor's note: The temperature gauge is a Bill James-created statistic that measures how hot or cold hitters are. We will spotlight Red Sox and opposing team temperatures on game days. The Blue Jays cooled off the Red Sox' bats on Sunday, salvaging the series sweep, but Boston will aim to rekindle a fiery lineup as the Orioles come to town Tuesday. Daniel Nava's streak...

Red Sox Tap Right-Handed Flamethrower Pat Light With 37th Overall Pick Out of Monmouth University (Video)

The Red Sox continued to stack up on pitchers, tapping right-hander Pat Light with the 37th overall pick in the 2012 MLB Draft. Light is 6-foot-6, 200-pound flamethrower from Monmouth University. As a junior, the hurler –– who projected to be a first-round pick –– finished with an 8-3 record with 102 strikeouts and a 2.40 ERA. He displayed pinpoint command during the season...

The Problem With Daniel Bard

On Sunday, Daniel Bard faced thirteen Blue Jays – he got four outs, walked six, hit two more, and gave up a home run for good measure. Despite that being the only hit he allowed, he gave up five runs, putting a cap on the disaster that has been his experiment as a starting pitcher. Given that he’s either walked or beaned 18 percent of the batters he’s faced this year, it’s...

2012 MLB All-Star Ballot Voting Totals - 6/5

The first wave of results are in for the American League voting totals for the 2012 MLB All-Star Game and the Boston Red Sox find only DH David Ortiz leading at his position. Adrian Gonzalez is not among the top five at first base. The same thing goes for Kevin Youkilis (third base) and Mike Aviles (shortstop) among the Red Sox infielders. Only Dustin Pedroia is among the...

Hitting Coach Dave Magadan Says Dustin Pedroia Taking Swings, Getting Ready to Hit Again (Video)

The bats have been strong for the Red Sox lately, and the lineup will only be better when Dustin Pedroia comes back from his thumb injury. Pedroia has been taking swings and is getting ready to re-enter the lineup, hitting coach Dave Magadan said Sunday. Magadan gave Jenny Dell the inside scoop on Sunday on Red Sox GameDay LIVE presented by UNO.

Deep Impact: Nothing Really Matusz To Me

At the beginning of last year, Brian Matusz was a popular sleeper and a candidate to evolve into the next Greg Maddux, mixed with a side of MacGyver and a Dragon from the future. Everyone loves sleepers, as you think you’re the only one who knows what’s up. The funny thing is, everyone thinks like that and also knows that you know. If they know what you know, you should also...

Red Sox Aim to Stay Hot vs Orioles

  Having just taken 2 out 3 over the weekend in Toronto, the Red Sox return home to Fenway looking to keep gaining ground in the division.  Despite still being in a last place tie with the Blue Jays, Boston sits just 3 games out of 1st at 28-26.  Since May 11th the Sox are [...]
