Jorge CamargoContributing WriterPhoto by Derick E. Hingle from USA Today Sports.The Red Sox today recalled the knuckleballer Steven Wright from Triple-A Pawtucket and optioned Heath Hembree to the same team. After making the Major League team in Spring Training, Steven Wright made one appearance for the Red Sox and it was during the marathonic game against the Yankees. The knuckleballer...
If I were to tell you that the Red Sox were going to score 7 runs in the series finale this afternoon, you’d probably think that would be enough to win the game. Sadly that wouldn’t even get the team within ten runs of winning the game. Wade Miley took to the mound, but couldn’t make it out of the 3rd inning. Unfortunately the pitching that followed him also got beat...
Those clamoring for the Boston Red Sox to acquire starting pitching help will use Sunday afternoon’s drubbing as Exhibit A.
The Boston Red Sox’s rotation continued to receive a pounding Sunday afternoon, as the Baltimore Orioles took the game and series with a 18-7 win.
The game quickly got out of hand in the third inning when Red Sox starting pitcher Wade Miley loaded the...
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 Boston Red Sox made several roster moves before Thursday’s spring training game against the Minnesota Twins at JetBlue Park.
The Red Sox optioned outfielder Bryce Brentz, third baseman Garin Cecchini and right-handed pitchers Heath Hembree and Zeke Spruill to Triple-A Pawtucket. Boston also reassigned lefty Henry Owens...
The Red Sox assigned LHP Henry Owens to minor-league camp this morning. Owens, once touted as the top lefty in the system, has fallen behind others after a couple of very poor Spring outings. Also, Boston optioned OF Bryce Brentz, 3B Garin Cecchini, and RHPs Heath Hembree and Zeke Spruill to AAA (soon-to-be Providence).

All players on the Boston Red Sox’s major league roster now officially are under contract for 2015.
The Red Sox announced Sunday that they have agreed to terms with 21 players on one-year contracts for the 2015 season.
The list includes:
Matt Barnes, RHP
Edwin Escobar, LHP
Heath Hembree, RHP
Joe Kelly, RHP
Tommy Layne, LHP...
The “Prospects To Know” series continues with the Red Sox top right-handed pitching prospects, a group headed by two righties who made their major league debuts last season.
After a stellar ending to his 2013 season, shoulder soreness limited Barnes during spring training in 2014. This kept him from competing for a spot on the big league club in April, and he struggled...

The Boston Red Sox Rookie Development Program kicks off next week. There are expected to be 10 participants at this year’s event.
Rusney Castillo, Mookie Betts, Blake Swihart, Eduardo Rodriguez, Heath Hembree, Edwin Escobar, Brian Johnson, Zeke Spruill, Sean Coyle and Henry Ramos are scheduled to participate, according to...
Only time will tell just how good the Jake Peavy trade was for the Boston Red Sox. The San Francisco Giants sure aren’t complaining.
The Red Sox traded a struggling Peavy to the Giants back in July in exchange for pitching prospects Heath Hembree and Edwin Escobar. Peavy turned his season around, guided the Giants to the postseason and contributed toward San Francisco nabbing...
It’s inevitable. At some point, Ben Cherington will lose Koji Uehara. Now, whether that’s due to lowballing him by a few million dollars this offseason, in a trade at next year’s deadline, or retirement remains to be seen. But the fact of the matter is, soon he’ll be gone.
It will be a sad day when Koji skips town – photo by Kelly O’Connor of Sittingstill.smugmug.com...
Jorge CamargoContributing WriterAfter beating the the O's one last time for this season, the Red Sox currently hold a 68-88 record. Since the Bobby Valentine season ended with a 69-93 record, it seems very unlikely that this year the Red Sox will end with a worse record. After all, the 2014 squad did better that the 2012 Red Sox. Since the Red Sox are not making it to the playoffs...
The Boston Red Sox on Wednesday recalled six players from Triple-A Pawtucket.
Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo was among those called up before Wednesday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park. Outfielder Bryce Brentz, third baseman Garin Cecchini, catcher/first baseman Ryan Lavarnway, left-handed pitcher Edwin Escobar and right-handed pitcher Heath Hembree also joined...

Since coming to the Giants in the July 26st trade that sent Prospects Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree to the Red Sox Jake Peavy has been nothing but incredible.
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...
The Red Sox actually won a game and hoped to be able to have two wins in a row. The Sox had rookie Rubby De La Rosa on the mound vs. former Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey. The Sox went out to an early lead, allowed the game to be tied in totally Red Sox fashion, went into extra innings and then had a monster of an 11th inning to put the game to bed. Mike Napoli hit a 3 run homerun...
BOSTON — After Saturday’s abysmal outing, Brandon Workman will be spending some time down on the farm.
The right-hander has been optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket, manager John Farrell announced Sunday. Right-handed reliever Heath Hembree will take Workman’s place on the 25-man roster.
Workman avoided danger for the first three innings Saturday afternoon before imploding in the...
To say Rubby De La Rosa stepped up would be an understatement.
The Boston Red Sox used nine pitchers Saturday in a crushing, 19-inning loss to the Los Angeles Angels. Their bullpen was taxed to the point where reliever Heath Hembree was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket after a dazzling Red Sox debut because Boston needed a fresh arm.
De La Rosa offered the ‘pen a much-needed respite...
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 best way to describe Saturday’s game between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels?
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...
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.
