HEATH HEMBREE RUMORS

Heath Hembree Optioned To Pawtucket; Edwin Escobar Called Up To Red Sox

The link between pitchers Heath Hembree and Edwin Escobar extends beyond their inclusion in last month’s Jake Peavy trade. The Boston Red Sox optioned Hembree to Triple-A Pawtucket before Wednesday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. Escobar was recalled from Pawtucket to take Hembree’s spot on the active roster. Hembree struggled in the 11th inning of the...

Edwin Escobar Called Up By Red Sox; Heath Hembree Optioned To Pawtucket

Right-hander Heath Hembree certainly earned the respect of his teammates and coaches Saturday. It came at a price. Hembree threw 62 pitches over four shutout relief innings in the Boston Red Sox’s 5-4, 19-inning loss to the Los Angeles Angels at Angel Stadium. The Red Sox, needing a fresh arm for Sunday’s series finale, optioned Hembree to Triple-A Pawtucket after the game. Left...

Red Sox Notes: Heath Hembree Optioned To Pawtucket After Great Debut

The best way to describe Saturday’s game between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels? Long. It took 19 innings and six-plus hours to determine a winner. Finally, Albert Pujols lifted the Angels to a 5-4 victory with a walk-off home run off Brandon Workman. The game ended after 3:30 a.m. ET. The Red Sox don’t have much time to stew on the devastating defeat, as roughly 12...

Red Sox Call Up Hembree And Brown From AAA

The Red Sox made two roster moves for their series in St. Louis. They called up pitcher Heath Hembree (acquired from the Giants in the Jake Peavy deal) and OF Corey Brown. Speculation is that Steven Wright will be sent down to AAA to account for Hembree's spot and either Mookie Betts will also be sent down or Allen Craig will be placed on the 15-DL to compensate for the Brown move.

Reports: Red Sox To Recall Pitcher Heath Hembree, Outfielder Corey Brown

The final two months of the season will be an open tryout for many members of the Boston Red Sox organization, and that will be the case as the Sox get set to return to St. Louis for the first time since last fall’s World Series. The Red Sox will open a three-game set in St. Louis on Tuesday, and they’ll have a pair of new faces. According to multiple reports, the Sox will recall...

Is Heath Hembree the Closer of the Future for the Red Sox?

As you know, the Boston Red Sox traded Jake Peavy to the San Francisco Giants on Saturday. (And if you didn’t, check out our take on the trade.) In return, the Sox received two minor league pitchers, 25-year-old righty Heath Hembree and southpaw Edwin Escobar.

Is Heath Hembree the Next Great Giants Closer?

Closers are made, not born. That’s a mantra that has been repeated ever more frequently over the past few decades as the role of the closer has become more pronounced. The idea, of course, being that great closers aren’t drafted as such; they tend to be failed starting pitching prospects who get converted to the bullpen and see their stuff blossom with the limited innings.

SF Giants Welcome Heath Hembree and the Seven Other September Call Ups

​Hard throwing San Francisco Giants prospect reliever Heath Hembree dropped in the Baseball America rankings prior to the start of the 2013 season. Hembree went from number three in 2012, to number seven in the Giants top 10 prospects list. This is likely due to him missing some time in 2012 with an injury. Hembree still has a power arm, and should get some strong consideration...

SF Giants Rumors: Heath Hembree, Brian Wilson and Tim Lincecum

Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News says number 3 prospect in the Giants organization (according to Baseball America) Heath Hembree was throwing bullets in his bullpen session. For those of you that haven’t heard of Hembree.
