Found June 10, 2012 on Fenway West:
Rich Hill will see Dr. Andrews tomorrow to get more information on his elbow.  He has been placed on the DL.  Mark Melancon has been called up from Pawtucket to take Hill's spot in the bullpen.

Your Morning Dump...where Rich Hill visits Dr. Andrews.

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. Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said prior to Sunday's game that reliever Rich Hill, who was placed on the disabled list, has been dealing with tightness in his left elbow. Hill will see Dr. James Andrews...

Mark Melancon Thrilled About Second Chance With the Red Sox, Says Confidence Was Never An Issue

BOSTON -- For nearly two months, Mark Melancon toiled away in Triple-A. It was the consequence of his ineffectiveness with the Red Sox, when he surrendered 11 runs and 10 hits through four appearances in April. But now, the reliever -- who was acquired via trade with the Astros in December -- is getting a second shot. With Rich Hill battling soreness in his elbow, the Red Sox promoted...

Daniel Nava, Cody Ross Close to Return While Carl Crawford, Jacoby Ellsbury Work Way Back From Injuries (Video)

Injuries have been the theme of the season thus far for the Boston Red Sox. While the starting rotation has remained relatively intact -- even adding Daisuke Matsuzaka coming off Tommy John surgery last year -- the bullpen and the lineup have been plauged by injuries all season. The outfield, in particular, has been decimated by sending player after player to the disabled list, seeing...

Effective Andrew Miller Helping Boston’s Bullpen

For the first month of the season, the Red Sox didn’t just have a bad bullpen, they had one of the worst bullpens in recent memory. Manager Bobby Valentine‘s relief corps pitched to a 6.10 ERA with a 5.13 FIP in April, both easily the worst marks in the game. Boston’s pen has gone on to post a 2.31 ERA with a 2.97 FIP since the calendar flipped to May, bringing their overall...

JJ set to battle Beckett as Red Sox visit Miami

After missing out on two earlier chances to face his former team, Boston Red Sox right-hander Josh Beckett will finally get his first matchup with the Miami Marlins. The 2003 World Series MVP will try to help stop Boston's three-game skid while sending the Marlins to a season-high seventh consecutive defeat Monday night. Beckett's turn in the rotation came one game after...

Daisuke Matsuzaka Returns to Red Sox Rotation After Tommy John Surgery (Video)

Daisuke Matsuzaka has bookended his time away from the Red Sox pretty well. He returns to the starting rotation on Saturday -- just one day shy of the anniversary of when he had Tommy John surgery. Matsuzaka has been working his way back through the minors, where he pitched 28.1 innings with a 3.49 ERA, 20 strikeouts and seven walks over six starts. Jenny Dell gives an update on...

How Many Games Will Daisuke Matsuzaka Win This Season?

Three hundred and sixty-four days after undergoing Tommy John surgery, Red Sox fans will finally get a look at a newly healed Daisuke Matsuzaka. The righty, who was perhaps the most hyped Sox signing in decades, has spent the past few months rehabbing his arm and experiencing various complications along the way. But at long last, Matsuzaka will make his return to the mound against...

Red Sox 2010 Draftees Work Their Way Up Through Minors Together (Video)

Minor League Baseball is a grueling lifestyle. Between the bus rides, low pay and the day-to-day physical demands of being a professional athlete, the minors are a long way from the glamour of The Show, so, it probably helps to have a friend along for the ride. Kolbrin Vitek and Bryce Brentz, two Red Sox prospects, are an inseparable pair. Chosen only 16 slots apart in the 2010 amateur...

Adrian Gonzalez 'Locked In' After Hammering 200th Career Home Run Against Nationals

BOSTON –– Adrian Gonzalez has cracked a career milestone. With his solo shot in the eighth inning of Friday's 7-4 loss to the Nationals, the Red Sox first baseman belted his 200th career long ball in the majors. Gonzalez could've reached that landmark earlier, but Nationals outfielder Xavier Nady robbed him in the third inning. "It feels good," Gonzalez said...

Jon Lester Looks to Break Spell of Repeating 'Groundhog Day'

Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Washington Nationals was frustrating for everyone on the Red Sox. The news on everyone's lips was about the ever-shifting strike zone, but Sunday also capped off a three-game sweep at the hands of the Nats, bringing the Red Sox below the .500 mark. But for Jon Lester, it all felt like the same old story again, one pitch away from escaping a jam, but...

Red Sox Swept by Nationals

Remember when Bobby Valentine said the Red Sox had hit rock bottom? It’s hard to continue doing that, but the Red Sox seem to manage to. Yesterday the Boston Red Sox were swept by the Washington Nationals in a three game series at home. On Friday they lost with Felix Doubront on the hill and [...]

Recap: Nationals finish off sweep after Aceves blows 9th

New England is officially on Andrew Bailey Watch. The Sox lost their third straight in a 4-3 defeat to the Nationals at Fenway. Washington finished up the sweep off of Alfredo Aceves. Aceves came on to start the 9th of a 3-3 game. After coaxing a fly out from Ian Desmond, Aceves faced pinch hitter Bryce Harper. Harper walked, and though Aceves struck out the next batter, Jesus...

A primer on the 2012 Red Sox, or what you missed while watching the Celtics

Hey, I know how it is. It's March, and you get wrapped up in the NCAA tournament. And then the Celtics start magically returning to form. And the Bruins, despite every lazy second you watch them play, are still a favorite with the playoffs on the horizon. The Sox start slow -- really slow -- and your temptation is to spend your sports energy elsewhere. The Bruins provided...
