With Opening Day 2014 looming on Monday, the Boston Red Sox made their final cuts of spring training, getting the roster down to 25 players.
Here’s the release:
Prior to today’s game against the Twins, the Boston Red Sox made the following roster moves:
Left-handed pitcher Tommy Layne, right-handed pitcher Brayan Villarreal, outfielder Corey Brown, and infielder Mike McCoy were...
Boston Red Sox executive vice president/general manager Ben Cherington announced a number of roster moves on Friday.
The Red Sox released right-handed pitcher Francisco Cordero and reassigned left-handed pitcher Tommy Layne, right-handed pitcher Brayan Villarreal, outfielder Corey Brown, and infielder Mike McCoy to minor league camp.
Following the moves, the Red Sox now have 25 players...
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.
Grady Sizemore’s progression, Shane Victorino’s health and switch-hitting situations, and Jackie Bradley Jr.’s second camp with the major league club are among the popular plots pertaining to the Red Sox’s...
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 Boston Red Sox have signed outfielder Corey Brown to a minor league contract with an invitation to major league spring training, according to ESPN.com’s Gordon Edes.
Brown, a first-round pick of the Oakland Athletics in 2007, has appeared in 36 career major league games over parts of three seasons with the Washington Nationals. The 28-year-old is a career .175 hitter (7-for...
Free-agent lefty reliever Eric O'Flaherty has agreed to a $7 million, two-year contract with the Oakland Athletics.
The team announced the deal Wednesday. O'Flaherty, who turns 29 next month, sustained a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow last season with Atlanta. He went 3-0 with a 2.50 ERA in 19 appearances before his season ended May 17 and he had elbow...

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....

We’ll go from #1 Steve Lombardozzi all the way to #63 Henry Rodriguez with about two posts per week until Spring Training. Enjoy.
Outfielder Corey Brown was one of the reasons...
The second game of tonight’s doubleheader between the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers shows exactly why you should never leave a game early and why the Nats are in the position to clinch a playoff birth any day now. It was a rough start and almost an outstanding finish at Nats Park with a crowd that got quite a show in the late innings by the Nats offense...
