Crawford, Ellsbury, and Ross on the way back

Some good news is needed, in the midst of the Red Sox newest losing streak. According to NESN, Carl Crawford has been taking BP since last week and has begun a throwing program that should put him on track to start a rehab stint in the minors very soon. He still has 1-2 weeks until he can start it, but his progression is encouraging. He hasn’t played since last year, and his addition...

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...

Red Sox release Marlon Byrd

The Red Sox have released outfielder and former Cub Marlon Byrd. He was designated for assignment on Saturday to make room on the roster for Dice-K. The Red Sox had traded reliever Michael Bowden to the Cubs for Byrd to bolster up their shallow outfield, but with the emergence of Nava and Podsednik, there was no longer room for Byrd on the roster.

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...

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...

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...

Beckett Loses to His Former Club

Josh Beckett took the mound against his former club for the first time and ended up coming away with a loss.  Beckett had a shaky first two innings and then settled down nicely.  However, the damage was already done against a pitcher as good as Josh Johnson.  Beckett ended up allowed 3 runs to score in the 1st inning.  Beckett gave up a leadoff triple to Reyes to begin the game...

Buchholz (7-2) allowed one run and five hits and walked two while throwing 69...

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

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...
