Robbie Ross hasn't pitched since being optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket due to elbow inflammation.

The southpaw struggled during his time with the Red Sox and now has been shut down. There's no clear timetable for his return to action.
May 28 - 10:12 PM

Red Sox optioned RHP Brandon Workman to Triple-A Pawtucket.

The Red Sox needed to clear a roster spot for David Price who is returning from the disabled list on Monday. The 28-year-old right-hander appeared in just one game for the big league club, firing three scoreless innings. He'll get another opportunity with the Red Sox this summer.
May 28 - 5:14 PM

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 with a double as the Red Sox were shut out by Christian Bergman and the Mariners on Sunday.

As a team, the Red Sox mustered a total of five hits on the afternoon, with Pedroia responsible for the only multi-hit effort and the lone extra-base hit. The veteran second baseman is now hitting .294/.371/.382 with two homers and 21 RBI on the season.
May 28 - 4:53 PM

Rick Porcello logged a quality start in Sunday's loss to the Mariners, allowing two runs on 11 hits across 6 1/3 innings.

The right-hander racked up six strikeouts on the afternoon while walking one. While he allowed a plethora of baserunners, he was able to bear down and make quality pitches to get him out of several sticky situations. Now 3-6 on the season, he'll carry a disappointing 4.21 ERA and 1.48 WHIP into Friday's start against the Orioles in Baltimore.
May 28 - 4:53 PM

Pablo Sandoval (knee) will remain on his rehab assignment for at least another three days.

Sandoval is hitting just .143/.217/.238 so far in six games with Triple-A Pawtucket, so the Red Sox understandably want him to get his swing in order first before they activate him. Deven Marrero has been getting most of the starts at third base of late.
May 28 - 11:15 AM

Red Sox transferred INF Marco Hernandez from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Blaine Boyer. Hernandez is out for the season following shoulder surgery.
May 28 - 10:48 AM

Red Sox purchased the contract of RHP Blaine Boyer from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Boyer is taking the roster spot vacated by Brian Johnson, who was sent down after posting a shutout in a spot start Saturday. It could be a one-day stay for Boyer, as he would seem to be a prime candidate to be designated for assignment when David Price (elbow) is activated Monday.
May 28 - 10:00 AM

Red Sox optioned LHP Brian Johnson to Triple-A Pawtucket.

That's life in the big leagues for you. Less than an hour after hurling nine shutout innings in a win over the Mariners, Johnson is already on his way back to the minors. Boston finally has a full rotation with David Price due back on Monday, but Johnson should get another shot later this summer.
May 27 - 7:22 PM

Making his Fenway Park debut, Brian Johnson yielded just five hits over nine scoreless frames for his first career shutout Saturday in the Red Sox’s 6-0 win over the Mariners.

Wow. This was only Johnson’s second career start but he looked like a seasoned vet with his masterful command of the strike zone. The 26-year-old left-hander struck out eight and didn’t walk anyone. Johnson’s fastball only sat in the mid to high 80s but he attacked the Mariners by throwing 85 of his 109 pitches for strikes and also benefited from a number of stellar defensive plays from Jackie Bradley Jr. and Mookie Betts. Johnson probably isn’t long for the rotation with David Price due back next week but this was an afternoon he’ll never forget. Johnson’s gem was the first complete game thrown by a Red Sox pitcher this year.
May 27 - 6:59 PM

Jackie Bradley whacked his fifth home run of the year Saturday in the Red Sox’s 6-0 win over the Mariners.

Bradley put overmatched starter Rob Whalen out of his misery by slugging a two-run homer over the right-center field wall with one out in the sixth inning. That put the Red Sox ahead 5-0 and they would never look back. Bradley also had a fine afternoon defensively, robbing Robinson Cano with a leaping catch in the triangle and later making a diving play to preserve Brian Johnson’s shutout in the ninth inning. Perhaps Saturday is a sign that Bradley is ready to break out of his season-long slump (.211 AVG over 109 at-bats).
May 27 - 6:57 PM

Hanley Ramirez went 2-for-3 with a run scored Saturday in the Red Sox’s win over the Mariners.

He reached in three of four plate appearances, singling twice and taking first on a hit-by-pitch. Ramirez also contributed his first steal of the season. Hanley has caught fire over his last seven games, hitting .391 during that stretch while improving his average from .250 to .273. He’ll look to stay hot Sunday as the Red Sox go for their seventh straight win.
May 27 - 6:53 PM

Mitch Moreland chipped in with two hits Saturday in the Red Sox’s win over the Mariners.

Moreland singled in the sixth and later scored on a two-run blast by Jackie Bradley Jr. He also gave the Red Sox a lift with an RBI single in the eighth inning. Moreland’s first year in Boston has been full of peaks and valleys but he’s been on the upswing recently with 13 hits in his last 35 at-bats (.371). He also ranks third in the majors with 16 doubles this year.
May 27 - 6:52 PM

Dustin Pedroia (knee) returned to the Red Sox' starting lineup on Saturday.

Pedroia was removed from Thursday's game with a minor knee injury and sat out on Friday as a precautionary measure. He's hitting second against Rob Whalen and the Mariners on Saturday.
May 27 - 12:43 PM

Red Sox optioned RHP Ben Taylor to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Taylor was the odd-man out with an extra arm needed to start against the Mariners on Saturday. The 24-year-old owns a 6.59 ERA, 1.90 WHIP and 14/9 K/BB ratio through 13 2/3 innings with the Red Sox this season.
May 27 - 10:44 AM

Red Sox recalled LHP Brian Johnson from Triple-A Pawtucket.

He's making a spot start for the Red Sox on Saturday against the Mariners. He struggled in a similar spot against the Blue Jays last month, allowing four runs on seven hits over five innings. He isn't a recommended streaming option.
