Pablo Sandoval (forearm) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

Sandoval hasn't started a game since taking a pitch off his left forearm last Thursday evening. He just has a bruise and should be good to go this week.
Aug 3 - 8:11 AM

Red Sox manager John Farell announced Sunday that Henry Owens will be recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket to start against the Yankees on Tuesday.

It will be the major league debut for the 23-year-old right-hander, who is regarded by many to be the top pitching prospect in the Red Sox organization. He owns a 3.16 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 103/56 K/BB ratio over 122 1/3 innings at Pawtucket this season.
Aug 2 - 5:22 PM

David Ortiz went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

Ortiz's third-inning RBI double off Rays starter Jake Odorizzi pushed the Red Sox advantage to 3-1, but the boys from Tampa would chip away and ultimately prevail with a 4-3 win, dropping the Sox to a disappointing 47-59. Ortiz is hitting .246/.337/.469 with 20 homers and 59 RBI. The numbers aren't as gaudy as we're accustomed to, but he remains a productive power bat.
Aug 2 - 4:59 PM

Wade Miley put together a nice start in earning a no-decision against the Rays on Sunday, tossing 6 2/3 innings of two-run ball.

Miley's strong start comes on the heels of a seven-run debacle versus the White Sox. Against the Rays on Sunday, he bounced back nicely and scattered five hits while striking out four and walking one over 6 2/3 innings. Brandon Guyer burned him for a solo home run in the first inning and James Loney notched an RBI double in the fourth, but the 28-year-old southpaw otherwise kept the scoreboard clean. Miley's quietly allowed two runs or fewer in three of his last four starts and holds a 4.55 ERA and 1.39 WHIP overall. He'll take to the road to face the Tigers next time he toes the rubber.

Mookie Betts (concussion) is feeling much better and could resume baseball activities next weekend.

Betts was placed on the concussion DL on Wednesday, but Red Sox manager John Farrell said the outfielder's "headache disappeared... no dizziness." It sounds like he should be ready for activated not long after he's eligible.
Aug 2 - 11:37 AM

Red Sox placed RHP Rick Porcello on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 30, with right triceps inflammation.

Porcello began feeling soreness a day after he was ripped for six runs -- five earned -- and 10 hits in two-plus innings on Wednesday versus the White Sox. The Red Sox don't think it's a long-term issue, so he should rejoin the rotation later this month. Brian Johnson and Henry Owens are options to take his spot in the rotation.
Aug 2 - 11:35 AM

Pablo Sandoval (forearm) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

He hasn't played since being hit on the left forearm by a pitch on Thursday. Sandoval remains day-to-day and should have a shot to return Tuesday after Monday's off day. Travis Shaw is at third base Sunday.
Aug 2 - 10:06 AM

Hanley Ramirez (shin) singled and had a sac fly in his return to the lineup Sunday.

Ramirez sat out Friday's game with a shin injury, but he's fine. He's sporting a .263/.305/.451 batting line with 19 homers and 50 RBI this season.
Aug 2 - 8:36 AM

Travis Shaw had a career-day at the plate on Saturday, powering the Red Sox to an 11-7 victory over the Rays.

Shaw was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket before the game and was penciled into the lineup at third base. He had been 3-for-15 on the season without any extra-base hits. He started his day with a leadoff double in the second inning and would come around to cross home plate. He then belted a solo homer off Matt Moore in the third inning. Shaw singled and came around to score in the fifth inning, then walked and scored another run in the sixth. To top it all off, he slugged a two-run homer off Kirby Yates in the eighth, finishing the afternoon 4-for-4 plus a walk with a double, two homers, three RBI and five runs scored. It's certainly an afternoon he'll never forget.
Aug 1 - 5:26 PM

Joe Kelly picked up his third victory of the season on Saturday despite allowing five runs on nine hits over five-plus innings against the Rays.

Kelly did manage to rack up six strikeouts on the afternoon while walking only one. Given the struggles in the Red Sox rotation this season, the right-hander continues to get additional chances at securing a spot, but once again has floundered. He'll head into Friday's start against the Tigers in Detroit looking to improve upon an underwhelming 6.11 ERA and 1.54 WHIP.
Aug 1 - 5:20 PM

Red Sox optioned RHP Jonathan Aro to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Aro was with the club for just two days to provide bullpen depth. He'll continue to bide his time at Triple-A until a full-time opening arises in the Red Sox bullpen.
Aug 1 - 10:32 AM

Red Sox recalled INF Travis Shaw from Triple-A Pawtucket.

He's in the Red Sox lineup at third base for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Rays. He has appeared in nine games for the Red Sox this season, going 3-for-15 (.200) with no extra-base hits.
Aug 1 - 10:31 AM

Red Sox acquired RHP Ryan Cook from the Athletics for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

The 28-year-old right-hander and former closer of the Athletics has spent the majority of the 2014 season at Triple-A Nashville where he has posted a 4.05 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 26/14 K/BB ratio over 33 1/3 innings. He's a nice low-cost gamble for the Red Sox.
Aug 1 - 12:41 AM

Mike Napoli slugged a two-run homer, drew two walks, and scored two runs in Friday's 7-5 win over the Rays.

Napoli took Jake McGee deep to the Monster Seats in the bottom of the seventh to give the Red Sox the lead. The veteran slugger hung around through Friday's trade deadline, but he's still a candidate to be moved in August. The 33-year-old is batting .210 with 13 home runs and a .704 OPS over 93 games this season.
Jul 31 - 11:03 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez yielded three runs over five innings Friday in a no-decision against the Rays.

Rodriguez really struggled with his control, walking a career-high four batters while throwing just 64 out of 110 pitches for strikes. But he managed to avoid major damage and ultimately kept the Red Sox in the ballgame. The 22-year-old has had some ups and downs during his rookie season and owns a 4.34 ERA and 56/24 K/BB ratio in 66 1/3 innings across 12 starts. He'll get the Yankees next week on the road.
