Found March 21, 2013 on NESN.com:
The Red Sox continued cutting down their roster on Thursday. The team announced that four pitchers have been assigned to minor league camp. Chris Carpenter, Terry Doyle, Oscar Villarreal and Chris Hernandez — all non-roster invitees to major league camp — were the pitchers reassigned. With the moves, the Red Sox now have 42 players in big league camp, including 32 players from the 40-man roster, one on the 60-day disabled list and nine non-roster invitees. Carpenter, who appeared in eight games with Boston last season, allowed four earned runs in 8 1/3 innings (4.32 ERA) this spring. He’ll continue to serve as organizational bullpen depth, as he was taken off Boston’s 40-man roster earlier in the offseason and then cleared waivers. Doyle, a Boston College alum and Concord, Mass., native, allowed nine runs (six earned) in 14 innings (3.86 ERA). He’ll also serve as organizational depth, perhaps getting a call-up later in the season if the Red Sox are bitten by the injury bug. Villarre...

Player Profile #25: Dustin Pedroia | 2B | BOS

On a whole, Dustin Pedroia‘s 2012 season was probably his worst of his career. However, if you dig deeper it’s really just two months (June and July) that weighed him down.

Daniel Nava’s Hustle, Increased Versatility Make Him Important Piece of Red Sox’ 2013 Bench

Daniel Nava wasn’t even listed in the Red Sox’ media guide coming out of spring training in 2012. That won’t be the case this season, as he is proving his worth down in the Sunshine State. Nava got the Red Sox on the scoreboard in the second inning of Thursday’s game with a sacrifice fly to left-center field following a lengthy at-bat in which he worked the count full. It...

Red Sox rumors: Jose Iglesias may be Opening Day starter

Thanks to a concussion, Jose Iglesias may be an Opening Day starter for the first time in his career.  It's not his own concussion he can thank, but that of Stephen Drew.  The Boston Red Sox know who their every day starting shortstop will be, and that's Drew.  However, because of the injury, Iglesias could be that guy Opening Day. In fact, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com...

Phillips gave Victorino interesting gift

Reds second basemen Brandon Phillips and Boston Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino recently played alongside each other in the World Baseball Classic for Team USA.

Jackie Bradley Jr.’s Talent Is Obvious, But Sending Him to Minors Remains Red Sox’ Best Option (Podcast)

Jackie Bradley Jr. would be a lock for the Red Sox’ Opening Day roster if the decision was based solely on his spring training performance. The decision is not, however, so the Sox must weigh multiple variables in deciding the young outfielder’s fate. Bradley has been tearing up the Grapefruit League this spring, causing many of the prospect’s supporters to get very vocal....

Red Sox 6, Phillies 1

He struck out five and walked two....
