The Boston Red Sox made a roster move before Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles, sending pitcher Matt Barnes to Triple-A Pawtucket while calling up another reliever in Heath Hembree.
While Barnes primarily is a starter in the minor leagues, he appeared in relief for the Red Sox in their 5-4 loss to Baltimore on Saturday. The right-hander spun...
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.

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...

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.
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. Unlike Escobar, Hembree has pitched in the big leagues before (albeit just 7.2 innings last season as a September...
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.
