(Photo: John E. Sokolowski, USA TODAY Sports) BOSTON-- According to a tweet from Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, Boston Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks is back from his rehab assignment with the Pawtucket Red Sox, while multi-purpose utility man Pedro Ciriaco has been designated for assignment. Cafardo tweeted this regarding the move earlier today. Pedro Ciriaco...
Felix Doubront has been something of an enigma for the Red Sox this season but has had solid starts in his last few outings. In fact, Doubront has racked up four straight quality starts after Sunday’s day game against the Angels.
The right-hander allowed three runs on six hits over six innings on Saturday with four strikeouts. Though he eventually look the loss, Doubront said...
Boston Red Sox right-hander Clay Buchholz could have his next start pushed back at least a couple days.
Buchholz, 9-0 with a 1.71 ERA this season, left his start Saturday in the seventh inning in the nightcap of a day-night doubleheader with what the team called ''neck tightness.''
Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated that Buchholz may not be ready to throw his...
A fan proposing at a baseball game isn’t usually news. When it comes at an opponent’s ballpark? Well, that’s a little more interesting.
Some love-struck Boston fan popped the question during a Red Sox game on Monday, but it wasn’t at Friendly Fenway Park that he did so. Instead it was at Tropicana Field, in front of a half-full dome of people probably a little surprised that...
It appears nothing can derail Clay Buccholz‘s dominant start to the 2013 season.
After missing an appearance due to soreness in his right AC joint, the righty pitched five innings of scoreless baseball on Sunday in a 3-0 win over the Yankees. Buchholz struck out four and allowed just two hits and one walk.
That performance lowered his season ERA to 1.62. Buchholz is 8-0 on the...
David Ortiz had three RBIs and Dustin Pedroia added two RBIs to back up a strong start from Boston Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz in a 7-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night at historic Fenway Park. The win gave the Red Sox a split of the day/night doubleheader.

The Red Sox surge over the weekend helped them retain the best record in the American League, and the third best record in all of Major League Baseball. On Sunday the Red Sox used the long ball to power their way past the Los Angeles Angels, taking the rubber game of the series and winning the series. Here are the 3 stars of the game.
Star 3: Jacoby...
After going 4-2 on the last homestand, the Boston Red Sox head out for a seven-game roadtrip. Tonight they'll kick it off with the first game of three-game set against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, FL.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. The game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Rays television market...
Boston and Tampa Bay have had a brief benches-clearing scrum in the sixth inning after the Rays' Matt Joyce was hit by a pitch from Red Sox starter John Lackey.
Lackey hit Joyce in the center of the back with two outs and Boston leading 6-4 Monday night. Joyce took several steps toward the mound and shouted at Lackey. Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia got in between the...
2:45 p.m.: Will Middlebrooks is back, and the odd man out, as has been speculated, is Pedro Ciriaco.
Ciriaco had his shining moments last season on a team that had little else to offer, but he hasn’t been anything but an average fill-in on the big league roster this year. With Jose Iglesias playing some truly inspired baseball in Middlebrooks’ absence, it only made sense to keep...
There were certainly some notable family ties for the Red Sox when it came to this year’s MLB draft.
John Farrell’s youngest son, Luke, was drafted in the sixth round on Friday. On Saturday, Carl Yastrzemski’s grandson, Mike, got his call in the 14th round (429th overall).
This is actually the second time that Mike Yastrzemski has been drafted. He was selected by the Red Sox...
