Rubby De La Rosa was charged with three runs over 5 1/3 innings in Monday's loss to the Rays.

De La Rosa permitted six hits, didn't walk anyone and recorded four punchouts. He needed 95 pitches to cover the 5 1/3 frames and has now failed to go six innings in three of his last four starts. He'll try to get back on track this weekend against the Blue Jays.
Sep 1 - 5:33 PM

Mike Napoli smacked a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Rays.

The longball came in the fourth inning off of Drew Smyly and cut the lead to one before Yoenis Cespedes eventually knotted things up in the eighth with an RBI single. The Red Sox went on to lose in extras. Napoli has just 17 homers and 51 RBI in an injury-shortened season, but he sports a pretty nice .251/.371/.433 batting line.

Rusney Castillo will join Double-A Portland on Wednesday.

Castillo made his pro debut by appearing in two games during the Gulf Coast League finals and he'll now move up to participate in the Eastern League playoffs. The newly-signed outfielder should make his way up to the big league roster at some point this month.

Dustin Pedroia (concussion) is unlikely to return to the Red Sox lineup before the weekend.

Pedroia suffered a concussion Saturday when took a forearm to the head in a nasty collision at second base. He was still symptomatic as of Monday morning and Red Sox manager John Farrell said it would be "optimistic" to think that he could play in the club's upcoming three-game series against the Yankees. Brock Holt is starting at second base in Monday's series finale in Tampa Bay.

Red Sox recalled RHP Steven Wright from Triple-A Pawtucket.

He's the first September callup for the Red Sox and will be available out of the bullpen Monday afternoon against the Rays. Wright has a 4.67 career ERA in the bigs.

David Ortiz is out of Boston's lineup Monday.

It's just a routine day of rest for the veteran designated hitter, who missed some time at the end of August with a right foot contusion. Mike Napoli is at DH and Allen Craig is at first base Monday versus the Rays.
Sep 1 - 9:59 AM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Sunday that Dustin Pedroia (concussion) will not play on Monday.

Pedroia took a forearm to the head in Saturday's contest against the Rays and has been experiencing concussion-like symptoms ever since. It's very likely that he will need a couple of days off, and will have to pass the standard concussion protocol before he's cleared to return to the lineup.
Aug 31 - 5:10 PM

Clay Buchholz tossed a three-hit shutout of the Rays on Sunday, leading the Red Sox to a 3-0 victory.

Buchholz was on from the outset, needing just 98 pitches to dispose of the impotent Rays offense. The right-hander allowed just two singles and a double and didn't walk a batter while striking out six. It's been a frustratingly inconsistent year for the 30-year-old, who owns a 6-8 record and 5.40 ERA after Sunday's brilliance. He'll try to keep a good thing going when he takes on the Blue Jays on Friday.
Aug 31 - 4:56 PM

David Ortiz went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Rays.

Ortiz capped off a monster month with his 95th RBI -- the designated hitter was batting .342/.440/.603 in August heading into Sunday's game. Ortiz is batting .265/.362/.515 with 30 homers overall.
Aug 31 - 4:51 PM

Xander Bogaerts ended a forgettable month with a two-hit day against the Rays on Sunday.

Bogaerts singled and scored the Red Sox' first run in the third inning, and he also added a double against Rays starter Alex Cobb. It ends a month in which he had just nine hits, batting .123 with just two runs scored. The shortstop is hitting .224/.293/.335 on the year.
Aug 31 - 4:47 PM

Brock Holt went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in a win over the Rays on Sunday.

Holt stole his 11th base of the season in the fifth inning, coming around to score on a Mookie Betts single. The outfielder is batting .289/.339/.385 with 66 runs scored. Holt endured a long August as pitchers began to figure him out, but he'll look to end on a high note with a strong September.
Aug 31 - 4:41 PM

Mookie Betts went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Rays.

Betts has been much better this go-round in the majors, batting .272 with two home runs, six RBI and six runs scored since being recalled on August 18. The 21-year-old is hitting .259/.344/.424 overall in 2014.
Aug 31 - 4:35 PM

Dustin Pedroia (concussion) is not in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

Pedroia was displaying concussion-like symptoms after leaving Saturday's game versus the Rays when he took a forearm to the head. He would normally be placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list, but with roster expansion coming, a move isn't needed. He will, however, have to pass MLB concussion protocol before being cleared to return to action. Brock Holt is at second base Sunday and could remain at the position for a while.
Aug 31 - 11:35 AM

Red Sox acquired INFs Ivan DeJesus Jr. and Jemile Weeks from the Orioles for INFs Michael Almanzar and Kelly Johnson.

DeJesus, 27, was hitting .282/.358/.389 with five home runs and 56 RBI in 113 games this season for the Orioles' Triple-A team. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2012 -- when he was a member of the Red Sox.
Aug 30 - 10:47 PM

Red Sox acquired INFs Jemile Weeks and Ivan DeJesus Jr. from the Orioles for INFs Michael Almanzar and Kelly Johnson.

Weeks hasn't lived up to the hype that made him a first-round pick in 2008, but he's worth the flier for Boston. The 27-year-old had registered a promising .302/.411/.422 batting line with 10 stolen bases in 70 games this season at three different levels of the Orioles' minor league system. He can play all over the diamond defensively.
