Alex Wilson On Robinson Cano Hit-By-Pitch: ‘It Was An Accident’ (Video)

It’s not news that MLB pitchers sometimes retaliate against teams or specific players by plunking them in the backside with a pitch.

Red Sox Notes: Alex Wilson Plays Role Of Unsung Hero With Huge Effort

BOSTON — In an interesting twist, the Red Sox’s offense bailed them out Saturday. The Red Sox have struggled offensively for much of 2014, but Boston’s bats broke through for 13 hits in a 10-7 win over the Houston Astros at Fenway Park. David Ortiz led the way with a monster performance in which he drilled two home runs and racked up six RBIs. The Red Sox guaranteed at least...

Boston Red Sox: 4 Potential Trades, Buyers Edition

You hear that far-off rumbling in the distance? That’s the MLB trade deadline, and all the nonsense that comes along with it. There’s nothing quite like it in any sport: because of the sheer depth of trade assets that every team has (because of their minor league systems, in which they have the rights to trade any player), pretty much anything can happen, and star players can...

Why 2014 could be difficult for Boston Red Sox Alex Wilson

The Boston Red Sox clearly made adding to their bullpen a top priority this offseason and now have compiled enough depth to have one of the strongest bullpens in baseball. Despite that, it leaves the question where does former second rounder and right handed relief pitcher Alex Wilson fit into the mix for a possible spot in the bullpen. Wilson, who made his major league debut last...

Sox get fresh arm in bullpen

The Red Sox have called up RHP, Rubby De La Rosa, and optioned Alex Wilson to Pawtucket. De La Rosa  came over from LA in the massive trade last August and has been pitching fairly well in Pawtucket.

Alex Wilson Growing Comfortable With Transition To Relieving After Turning Heads As Starter

PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- Alex Wilson always anticipated the switch. Named Boston's minor league pitcher of the year in 2011 -- as a starting pitcher -- Wilson knew there was a possibility the Red Sox organization could slide him back to the bullpen, where he starred at Texas A&M. But he never expected it this soon. With the Red Sox bullpen floundering in April, the Pawtucket Red...
