Shane Victorino and Vance Worley didn’t just share a clubhouse in Philadelphia. They shared an addition.
Don’t worry, though. It’s a healthy addiction, all things considered, and it’s one that each big leaguer battles with today. Worley, who now pitches for the Twins after three seasons with the Phillies, and Victorino both have a strong passion for shoes.
“He’s a big...
As Daniel Bard works through some mental and mechanical issues in the minor leagues, the team has been asked about their plans if he continues to struggle. As of now, the Red Sox do not plan to shut Bard down or send him to extended spring training. This comes after yet another bad outing for Bard at Double-A Portland.
Red Sox are not considering shutting down or sending...
The Boston Red Sox got news yesterday that Joel Hanrahan's surgery went well. He underwent Tommy John surgery as well as flexor tendon surgery yesterday afternoon. He will miss the rest of the season as well as the start of next season. The surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews.

Boston Red Sox right-hander Andrew Bailey threw a successful
bullpen session yesterday and could rejoin the team within a week, according to
Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe.
Bailey threw 25 pitches during the session before the Red
Sox contest against the Tampa Bay Rays. He said he felt fine, as he was watched
by manager John Farrell and pitching coach Juan Nieves...
POW! RIGHT IN THE KISSER!
Your browser does not support iframes. A Tampa Bay Rays fan was hit in the face with a home run ball during Wednesday night's game at Tropicana Field. It happened in the eighth inning as Boston Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks hit the home run to right field. A fan in the front row tried to catch it with his bare hands, but the ball bounced off his hands and directly...
Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz put his effort where his mouth is. He is selling autographed bats with 100-percent of proceeds going to the OneFund.
Dustin Pedroia’s hustle and grit have been on display since Day 1. But his effort this season provides a perfect snap shot of the 2013 Red Sox.
Pedroia’s .335 average, .423 on-base percentage, 27 runs, 25 walks and 1.6 offensive wins above replacement are all tops on the Red Sox. He entered Friday’s game hitting .500 (16-for-32) over the course of an eight-game hit streak,...
After coming a poor 2-5 homestand, the Boston Red Sox started this week on the right track by taking two out of three from the Tampa Bay Rays and by Friday are only one home behind the New York Yankees for first place in the AL East. The Red Sox lost three out of four from the Minnesota Twins at Fenway Park last week and will face at Target Field for a three game series this weekend...
In the weeks leading up to opening day, Boston was projected for a season of mediocrity in the wake of a 2012 season marred by injury, poor play, and clubhouse disunity.
Amongst the many questions surrounding the Boston club heading into the season included whether newcomer third baseman Will Middlebrooks would build off of his success from last season.
While having a very respectable...
Will Middlebrooks hit a three-run double which proved to be the difference as the Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 on Thursday night at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, FL.

Wednesday marked a month since bombs struck the Boston Marathon and despite the terror, it seems as though slowly but surely the city and the nation have started to heal. Through prayer, support, or runs in memoriam, the path to recovery has taken shape. And here in Oregon, home of Track Town USA and a population of outdoors enthusiasts, the run feels stronger than ever.
Yesterday in a bullpen session, Andrew Bailey threw 25 pitches off the mound without hinder.
This is the first time he has thrown off a real mound since going on the disabled list on May 5th. It is a significant step and Andrew Bailey stated that it all felt normal.
He threw all of his pitches and the Red Sox will have him pitch a simulated game on Thursday before deciding if he...
Believe it or not, but this was the first time this season that an opposing pitcher had a blown save in the ninth inning, and it could not come at a better time.
The Red Sox won only their second series in May, and now go to Minnesota to avenge their home stand where the Twins took three out of four games.
Here are the four bases:
First Base: Another reliever first: it was the first...
5:40 p.m.: Shane Victorino and outfield walls just aren’t getting along lately.
Victorino crashed into the right-field wall at Tropicana Field on Thursday, just four days after he experienced a violent collision with the right-field wall at Fenway Park. Victorino’s back, which he had problems with earlier this season, started to tighten up a bit after Thursday’s collision,...
The Minnesota Twins nearly handed Clay Buchholz his first loss of the season 11 days ago.
Now, the Twins will have another chance to send Buchholz home a loser as they host the Boston Red Sox on Friday night.
Buchholz (6-0, 1.69 ERA) was outstanding en route to six straight wins to begin the season, posting a 1.01 ERA during that span. In his seventh start, however, he surrendered...
