Hanley Ramirez is out of the Red Sox lineup Monday.

It's just a routine day of rest. Travis Shaw will start at first base and Marco Hernandez will cover third base in the afternoon tilt versus the host Orioles.
May 30 - 10:58 AM

David Ortiz (foot) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup Monday versus the Orioles.

Ortiz was scratched Sunday after getting hit in the foot by a pitch on Saturday, but X-rays turned up negative and he was feeling much better when he arrived at Camden Yards in Baltimore on Monday morning. The veteran slugger is starting at DH and batting cleanup versus Orioles right-hander Tyler Wilson.

Dustin Pedroia snapped a 3-3 tie with an RBI double in the 11th inning of Sunday's 5-3 win over the Blue Jays.

Pedroia came up clutch against reliever Drew Storen, hitting an RBI grounds rule double as part of a two-run 11th inning. Long before the game hit extras, Pedroia also had an RBI single. He finished 2-for-6 and is slashing .308/.369/.480 with 14 doubles, six homers, 21 RBI and 37 runs scored. The second baseman has picked up five doubles in his last five games.

David Ortiz is listed as day-to-day after X-rays on his injured foot came back negative on Sunday.

Ortiz was scratched from the Red Sox lineup on Sunday due to the lingering soreness from getting hit in the foot by a pitch in Saturday's game. It sounds as though he should return to the lineup on Monday.
May 29 - 5:42 PM

David Price allowed two runs on five hits over 6 1/3 innings in earning a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Sunday.

It was something of a listless performance from Price, who tied his season low in strikeouts with three. The Blue Jays were unable to take advantage, though, and only a two-run homer by Jose Bautista in the fifth inning resulted in legitimate damage against the ace southpaw. Price has allowed three or fewer runs in seven of his 11 starts, but he has also posted four starts of five or more runs allowed. It all equals out to a 5.11 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 79/18 K/BB ratio over 68 2/3 innings. He will try to drop his ERA under 5.00 when he faces these same Blue Jays at Fenway next time out.
May 29 - 5:33 PM

David Ortiz (foot) was a late scratch from the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

Ortiz is a little sore after being hit on the left foot by a pitch Saturday. Consider him day-to-day. Hanley Ramirez will now serve as the designated hitter, with Travis Shaw handling first base and Josh Rutledge entering the lineup at third.
May 29 - 12:46 PM

Brandon Workman (elbow) has been making appearances in extended spring training games.

Making his way back from Tommy John surgery, Workman will remain in extended spring until short-season Lowell opens their season on June 17. He could be an option for the Red Sox' bullpen at some point in the second half.
May 29 - 9:32 AM

David Ortiz clubbed a solo home run to give his club the lead in the ninth inning on Saturday, but it would prove to be futile in a loss to the Blue Jays.

The Red Sox led the majority of the game, but gave up the lead when the Jays rallied for four runs in the eighth. Papi made sure to right the ship quickly, tagging Gavin Floyd for his 13th homer of the season with one out in the ninth inning. Ortiz also doubled in the contest, finishing the afternoon 2-for-5. He is having another outstanding season at the dish, slashing .339/.420/.720 with 13 long balls and 46 RBI.
May 28 - 6:29 PM

Rick Porcello struggled in a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Saturday, surrendering four runs on seven hits over his 6 2/3 innings.

The right-hander racked up five strikeouts on the afternoon while walking just one. The Jays scratched out three runs against him in the third inning, but Porcello was able to bear down and keep them off the board after that until a Russell Martin solo shot in the sixth. He'll carry a 3.68 ERA and 1.10 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Orioles in Baltimore.
May 28 - 6:28 PM

Ryan Hanigan (neck, illness) is available off of the bench on Saturday.

The veteran backstop was unavailable on Friday due to a neck issue and an illness that he has been battling.
May 28 - 10:34 AM

Blake Swihart is not in the Red Sox starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Blue Jays.

Swihart has been a fixture in left field since his recall from Triple-A, but he'll get a breather on Saturday. Chris Young will start in his place and bat eighth.
May 28 - 10:20 AM

Christian Vazquez went 1-for-4 and drove home a pair of runs in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Friday night in Toronto.

Vazquez came through with a two-run single in the seventh inning which cut the Jays lead to 5-4. He has had a rough go of it at the plate this season, slashing a mere .223/.263/.330 with one homer and eight RBI.
May 27 - 10:10 PM

Joe Kelly racked up eight strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings against the Blue Jays on Friday, but also surrendered five runs on nine hits and three walks.

Kelly was brilliant in his first start back from the disabled list on Saturday, but was much more hittable this time out. Josh Donaldson and Justin Smoak each blasted solo home runs against him in the ballgame. Kelly will carry a frightening 6.30 ERA and 2.00 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Orioles in Baltimore.
May 27 - 10:07 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will be activated from the disabled list to make his season debut on Tuesday in Baltimore.

Clay Buchholz is headed to the bullpen. Rodriguez had a mini-setback with his right knee last week, but he returned to throw seven innings of one-run ball for Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday. Fantasy owners should probably give him a start or two to get his feet wet.
May 27 - 5:15 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell announced Friday that Clay Buchholz has been moved to the bullpen.

Buchholz was tagged for six runs on Thursday in another poor showing that pushed his ERA up to 6.35, so the move comes as no surprise. Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will come off the disabled list to start in his place on Tuesday. Buchholz should get another shot in the Red Sox' rotation eventually, but for now he'll be used in long relief.
