BOSTON — The Red Sox made a roster move before Sunday’s game.
The team has recalled knuckleballer Steven Wright and designated outfielder Corey Brown for assignment, manager John Farrell said in his pregame news conference.
Wright has started 13 games at Triple-A and one at Double-A this season, but he will work out of the bullpen with the Red Sox, Farrell said. The 29-year-old...
Corey Brown received an unexpected call on Monday — but of the best variety.
The 28-year-old outfielder, who signed with the Boston Red Sox as a free agent this offseason, was called up to the big leagues after Allen Craig was placed on the disabled list. The Oklahoma State product has spent parts of three seasons in the majors, but he hasn’t appeared in an MLB game since Sept...
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.
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...
Tempers flared between the Pawtucket Red Sox and Buffalo Bisons on Friday night at McCoy Stadium.

It means nothing, of course. If Felix Doubront goes out and hurls six no-hit innings against The Bronx Embalmers today, it will have absolutely no impact on who hoists the 2014 World Series trophy. And yet, it is the Red Sox versus the Yankees. And it may feature Jacoby Ellsbury in home pinstripes facing his fellow 2013 World Champions (if he isn't hurt). The Red Sox know who...
FORT MYERS, Fla. — There are so many intriguing storylines surrounding the Boston Red Sox’s outfield that the most underrated development hardly is a blip on the radar.

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Boston Red Sox outfielder Corey Brown left Thursday’s spring training exhibition against Boston College after fouling a ball off his left hand. Everything has since checked out OK, according to manager John Farrell.
“He’s a little swollen today,” Farrell said before Friday’s game against the Minnesota Twins at JetBlue Park. “He’ll go through a normal...
Today, the Boston Red Sox had a productive day beating both Northeastern University and Boston College 5-2. Everything went well for the Red Sox who got many top prospects in the game today against the two college teams except for one injury. That injury occurred in the third inning of the game to Corey Brown. While hitting in the bottom of the third, Corey Brown fouled a pitch...

The Oakland A's have made yet another trade with the Washington Nationals, this time re-acquiring former first-round pick Corey Brown from the Nats for cash considerations. Brown had been DFA'd by Washington last week.
OF Corey Brown was hoping for a shot to be the Washington Nationals fourth outfielder, providing key depth for starters Bryce Harper, Jayson Werth, and Denard Span. That hope dissipated a week and half ago when the Nationals signed free agent Nate McLouth.
For Brown to get a proper shot, he would need a trade. Where better for the Nats to seek a trade than the Oakland A’s....
