Yankees Blog | ESPN New York ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- And the hits just keep on coming, 11 in the game by the Yankees and one more to the gut of the team when Curtis Granderson, who missed the first 38 games of the season with a broken right forearm after being hit by a pitch, got plunked again in the fifth inning and suffered a broken left pinkie, casting a deep pall over what should have been a joyous 9-4 victory.

Red Sox Blog | Providence Journal By Tim BrittonBOSTON -- Jose Iglesias was exposed to third base just in time. Three days after playing third base in a game for the first time in his life in Pawtucket, Iglesias is in Boston and starting at the hot corner on Friday night. With Will Middlebrooks placed on the disabled list with a strained back, the Red Sox decided Iglesias was their best option at third over the next 15-plus days. That's in spite of the limited experience he has at the position. "I only played one game," Iglesias said when asked how comfortable he was at third, as if as a reminder. "There's no doubt it's a d...

Thus, on Friday, the Red Sox placed Victorino on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain, retroactive to Tuesday. The hamstring, though, is likely connected to the back tightness that had previously kept Victorino out of the lineup. "That's the kind of stuff that gets old," Victorino said. "The thing that was frustrating for us was not having an answer. That's the part that f...Boston Red Sox 15 hours ago

That hurt out team. And that hurt more than anything. Let my teammates down. They expect me to make plays down the stretch, and I had the ball with the opportunity to make a couple of plays and I came up short. That burns...
