Red Sox Interested in Jorge Soler

Cuban Defector Jorge Soler has become eligible for Free Agency today. Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus has listed the Red Sox amongst the teams favorited to land the Cuban outfielder. At 20 years old, Soler would not be major league ready. However, Baseball America has stated previously that, had he been eligible, he would have ranked as the 39th best prospect in baseball....

Your Morning Dump... Where Nava's getting some love

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Daniel Nava arrived on May 10 in time for the Red Sox [team stats] to fall to 12-19. They’re 15-6 since, good for the second-best record in baseball. Coincidence? Hardly. “I’m absolutely amazed,” said...

Taking Stock: Tigers - Red Sox series

After every series, we'll take stock of how each individual and group performance affects their overall value.

Daniel Nava: He complied a bunch of 1-hitters, and the 1 hit in the second game...

Daisuke Matsuzaka Shines in Rehab Start With Pawtucket Red Sox (Video)

Daisuke Matsuzaka may still be dealing with some post elbow surgery problems, but that's not keeping the veteran from making quality starts each time out in the minors.

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...

Jarrod Saltalamacchia's Performance Is Warranting An Invitation to the All-Star Game

BOSTON –– Even in losses, Jarrod Saltalamacchia continues to impress. By belting a solo shot to deep center in Thursday's 7-3 loss against the Tigers, the Red Sox catcher tallied his 10th shot of the year, signaling the second highest total on the team behind David Ortiz's 12 long balls. Saltalamacchia's home runs haven't been close calls, either. Just like in...

Sox Climb Out of the Basement With 7-4 Over Jays

Kevin Youkilis Gets Day Off as Will Middlebrooks Gets Start at Third Base in Toronto

Rumors swirled about Kevin Youkilis' future in Boston on Friday but while the unsubstantiated suggestions continue to roll in the third baseman will get a much-needed day off. Will Middlebrooks gets the start in his place at the hot corner, hitting sixth in the lineup. The hot-hitting Jarrod Saltalamacchia got a noticeable bump in the lineup as well on Friday, as Salty will hit...

Recap: Sox cruise to easy win in Toronto

(Photo by Abelimages/Getty Images) The Red Sox were firing on all cylinders tonight on their way to an easy 7-2 victory in Toronto. When Clay Buchholz announced that he was going to start working with his own, personal pitching coaches I was a little skeptical.  But the duo of Doc Brown and Marty McFly seem to be paying off immensely as Buchholz has reverted back to his 2010 self...

In retrospect, it makes sense that Ben Cherington would throw water on the Knobler report about Kevin Youkilis, because it was so definitive.DKnobler ‏@DKnoblerRed Sox are telling teams they definitely intend to trade Youkilis.I could repeat that, emphasizing the strong words, but it would be nearly all of them -- "telling teams they definitely intend to trade" sounds...

Which Coors Light Game Rule Should Fans Play by This Weekend?

The Red Sox have a chance to make a run up the standings in the coming days, with a tough stretch of intradivisional play ahead. After a weekend series in Toronto, they'll welcome the Baltimore Orioles to Fenway Park and could conceivably end up in a drastically different place in the AL East when the week in through compared to where they start it.
