Clay Buchholz surrendered two earned runs over six innings Saturday in a loss to the Orioles.

Buchholz actually did a pretty good job of damage control considering he gave up 11 hits. He has now surrendered 23 hits in 16 1/3 innings this season and is sporting a 1.65 WHIP through three starts. The 30-year-old righty gets the Rays on the road next week.

Red Sox signed RHP Denny Bautista to a minor league contract.

The 32-year-old hurler hasn't pitched in the big leagues since he was a member of the Giants during the 2010 season. He should be considered a long-shot to make an impact with the Red Sox this season.

Shane Victorino was scratched from the Red Sox lineup on Saturday due to sore ribs.

Victorino smashed into the outfield wall on Friday trying to take a home run away from Caleb Joseph, which caused the injury. He should be able to return to active duty in a day or two.

Mookie Betts is not in the Red Sox starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Orioles.

Just a routine day off for the budding young superstar who went hitless in Friday's game against the O's. Brock Holt is drawing the start in his place in center field and will hit leadoff for the Red Sox on Saturday.

Pablo Sandoval (foot) went 1-for-2 and drew a walk in his return to the Red Sox lineup on Friday.

Sandoval had been sidelined since leaving Tuesday's game with a bruised left foot after being drilled by a pitch. He's off to a terrific start to his Red Sox career, hitting .316/.409/.316 in the early going.

Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a walk-off RBI single in a 3-2 win over the Orioles on Friday night.

Mike Napoli led off the bottom of the ninth inning with a walk against Brian Matusz before Daniel Nava sacrificed him over to second and Bogaerts cashed him in with a bloop single to right field. It was his first career walk-off hit. Bogaerts, who also had a run scored on the night, now owns a healthy .395/.452/.474 batting line through nine games this season. The Red Sox are 7-3 on the year.
Apr 17 - 11:05 PM

Joe Kelly allowed two runs over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Orioles on Friday.

Kelly was dominant in his season debut against the Yankees last season, but he wasn't nearly as efficient this time around, as he threw 118 pitches and couldn't get out of the sixth inning. He allowed four hits (including a home run to Caleb Joseph) and two walks while striking out three batters. The velocity is there for Kelly -- he was still throwing in the mid-90s in his final frame -- but he hasn't found a way to parlay that into sustained success as a starter yet.
Apr 17 - 11:04 PM

Ryan Hanigan launched a two-run homer against the Orioles on Friday.

Hanigan's blast, which was his first home run of the season, tied the game in the fifth inning. Boston went on to win in the bottom of the ninth. Hanigan is hitting just .136 (3-for-22) so far, but he has drawn seven walks, so his on-base percentage sits at .345. The Red Sox will take it, at least until top prospect Blake Swihart is deemed ready.
Apr 17 - 11:03 PM

Mookie Betts went 0-for-3 with a walk Friday against the Orioles.

The 0-fer snapped a six-game hitting streak. Through nine games, Betts is batting just .209 with a .271 on-base percentage. That's not what fantasy owners were hoping for, but we wouldn't worry too much about the slow start just yet. The upside and tools are obvious.

Brandon Workman was given a platelet-rich plasma injection on Wednesday for his right elbow.

Workman has been on the disabled list retroactive to April 3 with a right elbow sprain. It's not clear when the reliever might be able to resume throwing.
Apr 15 - 5:01 PM

Wade Miley was shelled for seven earned runs in 2 1/3 innings Wednesday as the Red Sox fell to the Nationals.

Miley looked toast from the jump, yielding two runs in the first inning on a Bryce Harper RBI double and a Ryan Zimmerman RBI triple. Washington then exploded for six runs in the third. Miley had a decent debut for the Red Sox last Friday against the Yankees, but he's now carrying a grotesque 10.57 ERA through two outings with his new team. The 28-year-old left-hander will look to bounce back next week at Tampa Bay.
Apr 15 - 4:58 PM

Hanley Ramirez slugged a two-run homer in Boston's loss to the Nationals on Wednesday.

It was a fifth-inning shot off Gio Gonzalez that sailed over the Green Monster. Hanley had no other hits on the afternoon but he's off to a very promising start with his new team, boasting a .923 OPS, four home runs, and nine RBI in eight games. Now if only he could pitch.
Apr 15 - 4:51 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr. entered Wednesday with a .367 average in 30 at-bats for Triple-A Pawtucket.

Bradley's hitting, or lack thereof, is one of the reasons he started the year in Pawtucket. A Gold Glove caliber outfielder, Bradley owns a paltry .196 average across 479 big league at-bats. If Bradley can at least be competent at the plate, he should be able to carve out a role for himself at the major league level. Of course, that's unlikely to happen in Boston with Daniel Nava, Shane Victorino, Allen Craig, Mookie Betts, Hanley Ramirez and Brock Holt all seeing time in the outfield.
Apr 15 - 2:21 PM

David Ortiz is not in the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

It's just a routine day of rest. Mike Napoli is in the designated hitter spot Wednesday, with Allen Craig handling first base. Ryan Hanigan is also sitting out, with Sandy Leon getting the start behind the plate.
Apr 15 - 10:39 AM

Pablo Sandoval (foot) is not in the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

Tests on Sandoval's bruised left foot came back negative, but it's not a surprise to see him sitting with Boston having a day game. He's day-to-day. Brock Holt is filling in at third base Wednesday.
