BOSTON –– The Red Sox are scrambling to sort out a schedule. With Clay Buchholz on the disabled list, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, pitching coach Bob McClure and assistant pitching coach Randy Niemann have discussions ahead to assemble a rotation with a surplus of starting pitchers. After Saturday's game, Valentine confirmed that Franklin Morales would receive another start. Since Aaron Cook got promoted and Josh Beckett is on the verge of returning, the team has several options. "We have Franklin and we have a West Coast trip and we have Clay and now Cook, and we also have Josh...

BOSTON -- For the first time since May 5, Aaron Cook will start for the Red Sox. After recovering from a gash on his leg that required 11 stitches, the 33-year-old was purposely scratched from Saturday's start in Pawtucket to start Sunday's game against Atlanta in place of Clay Buchholz, who is battling an undisclosed illness. When Cook takes the mound at Fenway Park, expect...
The Red Sox had a 4.31 team ERA going into Sunday afternoon's game against the Braves. That's third-highest in the American League, and it's in large part due to the performances of the starting pitchers. Josh Beckett, Clay Buchholz, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Aaron Cook have all spent time on the disabled list, and Daniel Bard has gone down to Triple-A Pawtucket. The Red...
Franklin Morales had his second spot start for Josh Beckett who is on the DL and once again he showed a lot of promise. I think a lot of people have Franklin Morales on their radar now that did not before, in a very good way.
Morales didn't have the best first inning, however he only allowed one run to score and settled down real well after that. Morales started the game...

With all the excitement and emotion going on with the Kevin Youkilis trade, it's kind of easy to forget that there was actually a baseball game Sunday afternoon. A game that the Red Sox won 9-4, no less. Well, Aaron Cook probably can't afford to get caught up in all that, as the veteran right-hander is still working his way back in to full form after suffering a laceration...
Boston's starting pitching may finally be starting to turn it around, going 3-1 on the week. Even that loss -- suffered by Jon Lester at the hands of the Atlanta Braves on Friday -- was deemed a quality start, with the lefty giving up three earned runs in seven innings of work. Scott Atchison even got in on the fun, hurling two scoreless innings of relief on Thursday to pick...
8 a.m. ET: The Braves (38-32) upended the Red Sox (36-34) and snapped the five-game winning streak with strong pitching. Boston will look to bounce back with Franklin Morales, who is making his second straight spot start in place of Josh Beckett. Beckett has been sidelined on the disabled list with soreness in his shoulder. In his first start since 2009, Morales piled up the strikeouts...
Tonight the Boston Red Sox will open a three game series with the Atlanta Braves, and close out interleague play for 2012. Tonight Franklin Morales will be on the mound for his second career start with Boston. They will face Jair Jurrjens tonight, who is off to a rough start. Morales was solid against the [...]
The trade rumors have never been thicker around Kevin Youkilis, but there's still baseball to be played Saturday night at Fenway Park. Youkilis is out of the lineup as reports circulate that the Red Sox are trying to move the veteran infielder as soon as possible, and Will Middlebrooks will start at third while Adrian Gonzalez resumes his usual place at first base. The infield...
I was at today's game and consider myself very lucky. Not many times do you know you are seeing someone in their last game and have their last at bat at Fenway before being traded and get to stand up and cheer them off the field. I got to do that today with Kevin Youkilis. It was just special in the ball park and it just showed how much Youk means to the fans. I can&...

To say the Red Sox' lineup is a little shook up for Sunday's game would be an understatement. A day after much upheaval over the status of Kevin Youkilis, the third baseman is back in the lineup for the final contest in a three-game series against the Atlanta Braves. Rather than bumping Will Middlebrooks out of the batting order, though, Youkilis will start at third, and...
Will Middlebrooks had a solo homer among his three hits and drove in two runs, Franklin Morales gave Boston another decent start as the fill-in for Josh Beckett and the Red Sox beat the Atlanta Braves 8-4 on Saturday night.
Dustin Pedroia added three hits, a walk and had two RBIs for Boston, which won for the eighth time in 10 games to ensure a winning interleague record for the...
After falling 4-1 last night, the Boston Red Sox look to get back on track tonight in the middle game of a three-game interleague set with the Atlanta Braves at historic Fenway Park.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. and will be broadcast on FOX to 15% of the country. For those of you who live in Connecticut like myself, the game will be shown on WCCT-20, the sister station...

The Red Sox put some honest-to-goodness runs on the board and beat the Braves 8-4.
Maybe Jair Jurrjens isn't so great after all. Perhaps the Sox bats took last night off intentionally, storing up their energy and power to unleash it tonight. Whatever the cause, it's just good to see some actual offense from...
