Red Sox Designate Williams Jerez For Assignment

The Red Sox have announced that they’ve designated lefty Williams Jerez for assignment. The move clears roster space for first baseman Mitch Moreland, whose one-year deal is now official. The Red Sox drafted Jerez in the second round in 2011. They added him to their 40-man roster after the 2015 season, in which he posted a 2.54 ERA, 8.7 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9 while pitching in the bullpen...

Sandoval's career fell 'into an abyss' after getting 'complacent'

Pablo Sandoval isn’t making any excuses for Pablo Sandoval. The Red Sox third baseman has been a bust since signing a five-year, $95 million contract with Boston ahead of the 2015 season, and he’s not blaming anyone but himself. Sandoval admitted in a recent phone interview with ESPN.com and ESPN Deportes that he didn’t give the Red Sox his all in his first season with the...

Teams are calling Red Sox about extra starting pitchers

One team that contacted the Red Sox Wednesday about their starting pitching surplus was told that only Clay Buchholz is available in a trade. That certainly makes sense, as Buchholz is due to earn $13.5 million after the Red Sox exercised his 2017 option. That also indicates the Sox aren’t inclined to deal lefthander Drew […]

David Ortiz comeback? Red Sox not pushing slugger: 'He'd call'

David Ortiz is such an important part of Boston Red Sox history that players and fans alike are having trouble coping with his retirement. Big Papi, of course, didn’t do those people any favors Tuesday night, when he joked on Instagram about making a comeback after the Red Sox acquired left-handed ace Chris Sale in a blockbuster trade. So, is Ortiz’s unretirement worth serious...

Red Sox Remain Patient On Trading Away A Starter

The Red Sox may have the 'deepest depth' on starting pitching of any team in MLB. Think about it: Rick Porcello, Chris Sale, David Price, Eduardo Rodriguez, Drew Pomeranz, Clay Buchholz, Steven Wright, Roenis Elias, Joe Kelly, Brian Johnson, and Henry Owens. Ridiculous. Now, as happens nearly every year, injuries and crappy performances will whittle down that field considerably....

Chris Sale raves about Red Sox, excited to pitch at Fenway

About 24 hours ago, Chris Sale was on a team that hadn’t made the playoffs in eight years. Now, his presence on the Red Sox makes Boston a legitimate World Series contender in 2017. Needless to say, the All-Star left-hander seems pretty enthused about the trade that sent him from the Chicago White Sox to Boston in exchange for four prospects. “You’re talking about one of...

Chris Sale seems excited to join Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox acquired starting pitcher Chris Sale in a trade on Tuesday, and the left-hander does not seem disappointed to be leaving the Chicago White Sox. Shortly after news of the deal broke, Sale posed for a photo with a big smile on his face and someone holding a Red Sox logo in front of him. Chris Sale's college coach just sent me this.

Pablo Sandoval appears to have lost a lot of weight

Remember Pablo Sandoval? He’s that former World Series MVP that the Boston Red Sox gave $100 million to before the 2015 season, and they essentially have nothing to show for it. Perhaps that will change in 2017. Sandoval showed up to spring training last year very overweight, and there were reports that the Red Sox were not going to give him playing time until he slimmed down...

Red Sox conscious of new luxury-tax penalties this offseason

OXON HILL, Md. (AP) The big-spending Boston Red Sox could be far more conservative this offseason because of baseball's new luxury tax rules. President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Monday that the new collective bargaining agreement's stricter penalties for spending above a certain payroll threshold could factor in to the team's plans. His top priority is to find...

Profane David Ortiz Ugly Xmas Sweater being sold for charity

The Ugly Christmas Sweater craze has been a fixture during the holidays for years now with no end in sight. But we can all thank David Ortiz — or at least a variation on his popular and profane catchphrase — for giving the silly tradition some much-needed spunk. A new Ugly Christmas Sweater has hit the (virtual) shelves just in time for the holiday season that celebrates the...
