FORT MYERS, Fla. — Clay Buchholz has shown an ability to be elite. The problem is that Buchholz’s flashes of brilliance so often are followed by periods of frustration.
Taking that into consideration, the Boston Red Sox must temper their excitement when it comes to Buchholz’s strong spring training performance thus far. However, it’s hard not to be encouraged by the right...
Stephen Drew and Kendrys Morales are willing to wait for a team to match their price, according to their agent Scott Boras. Both Drew and Morales rejected their team’s $14.1 million qualifying offers. They have been working out for six days a week at Boras’ sports training institute in South Florida. Boras said that they have had an “intense spring training” which has...
FORT MYERS, Fla. — Boston Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington on Saturday addressed the arrest of catching prospect Jon Denney.
Denney was arrested early Thursday morning for driving with a suspended license and allegedly acting belligerently toward police. Denney, who gave police a license that was restricted for business and emergency purposes after an alleged DUI in Arkansas...
Entering Spring Training, Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell had many of the same types questions that most other Major League skippers face. One of those questions involves the decision of who will play center field now that Jacoby Ellsbury has fled to New York. It is now a choice between an unproven rookie and a veteran recovering from injuries that have plagued him for the past...

Jon Denney was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the third round of last year’s amateur draft and it seems the 19-year-old has a lot to learn about being humble and making good decisions. Denney was arrested for driving with a suspended license early Thursday morning after being pulled over for driving erratically. When asked by police why he was in the area, Denny gave a million...
FORT MYERS, Fla. — Jon Lester’s mind is at ease, so to speak.
Lester entered Boston Red Sox spring training light-years ahead of where he was upon reporting to camp last season. Rather than working extensively to fix his mechanics, Lester has been able to focus more on normal spring preparation. The results have been impressive to this point.
“It’s just more getting back...
Jake Peavy made his spring training debut on Wednesday when the Boston Red Sox played the Minnesota Twins.
The veteran starter pitched three innings and gave up one run and two hits. He also struck out two and surrendered two walks. Peavy was expected to pitch earlier in spring training, but he suffered a finger injury during a fishing trip at the beginning of the month.
Boston Red Sox catching prospect Jon Denney was arrested for the second time in three months, but this one takes the cake by far. According to a police report obtained by Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan, Denney was pulled over just before midnight Wednesday night after cops observed his truck fishtailing. Denney gave the police a […]
Sam GalanisContributing WriterAP Photo/Steven SenneThere’s no doubt that Fenway Park has arguably the biggest home field advantage. A huge part of that advantage comes from knowing the outfield. Fenway is known for its massive right and center fields, which taper into a very shallow left field. And of course, there’s the Green Monster. If a team knows how to use it, they can...

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Pitcher Rubby De La Rosa finds it hard to believe he’s been with the Boston Red Sox for less than two years.
De La Rosa, who was traded to the Red Sox in the August 2012 blockbuster that sent Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto to the Los Angeles Dodgers, said Thursday he’s feeling right at home in the Boston organization as he progresses...
An interesting Red Sox connection might result in free-agent Stephen Drew winding up in MoTown. Because former Sox phenom Jose Iglesias is likely headed to the DL with "shin splints", Detroit needs a reliable shortstop. Word is that Drew might be the answer—and Hall of Fame writer Peter Gammons thinks it might happen.
As I glance over MLB's national schedule for April, something hit me - holy crap, there sure are a lot of Yankees and Red Sox games featured on MLB Network, ESPN, and Fox. After doing some number crunching, I was more than a little shocked at just how well both teams were represented, and honestly, a little terrified at just how over the top the schedule is in favor of these...
