Red Sox notebook: Brock Holt delivers in a pinch

PHILADELPHIA -- Yesterday afternoon, Alex Cora insisted the National League game was fit for his current Red Sox roster, one deep with versatile players and impact hitters to come off the bench.It didn’t matter that the Sox were one of five teams without a pinch-hit home run this season. They had the second-fewest hits off the bench in the majors while going 6-for-39 (.154) on the year.But last night in the eighth inning against the Philadelphia Phillies, Cora decided that the upgrade going from Rick Porcello to pinch hitter Brock Holt off the bench was more important than the potential...

It’s good to see Alex Cora isn’t overworking Chris Sale

The most important thing about these last two months is keeping Chris Sale’s arm as rested as possible. There wasn’t a better sight anywhere in baseball than the one in Baltimore on Sunday afternoon, when Chris Sale retook the mound after a brief stint on the disabled list. Although he really didn’t miss all that much time in the grand scheme of things, it was like a king retaking his throne. Of course, Sale was dominant. Twelve strikeouts, one hit, no walks, no runs. Ho hum. Just a normal day for the Red Sox ace and prohibitive favorite to win the American League Cy Young. The...

Daily Red Sox Links: Alex Cora, J.D. Martinez, Drew Pomeranz

Alex Cora may be a little biased, but he has some thoughts on J.D. Martinez’ place in this league. (Rob Bradford; WEEI) Speaking of Cora, just because the Red Sox had a lot of resources to build their roster shouldn’t disqualify him from winning Manager of the Year. (Evan Drellich; NBC Sports Boston) Drew Pomeranz is in the bullpen now, and he’s comfortable in his new role. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe) Boston’s bullpen is obviously hitting a snag right now, but continuing to emerge amid the other struggles is Ryan Brasier. (Michael Silverman; Boston Herald) Chad Jennings had a look...

Red Sox Notebook: Time to crown J.D. Martinez?

Subtitle: Betts could be only block to Triple CrownBALTIMORE — Here’s the ultimate marker of how ridiculously high the Red Sox’ level of play has reached.Now folks are starting to wonder if J.D. Martinez could win the Triple Crown. And if he doesn’t, will the reason be Mookie Betts winning the batting title.These are first-place problems.“The whole Triple Crown thing — you know who’s leading the league in hitting?” said Alex Cora before Saturday’s doubleheader against the Orioles. “I mean, I would love (for Martinez) to win the Triple Crown, but if he wins the...

We didn’t need much help to know J.D. Martinez was having a huge year for the Red Sox, but any time someone gets mentioned in the same breath as Mickey Mantle it’s worth bringing up. (John Tomase; WEEI) Ken Rosenthal takes a look at how Alex Cora has taken over the Red Sox and led them to these absurd heights. (Ken Rosenthal; The Athletic) ($$) As the Red Sox continue to get healthier, Blake Swihart should be ready to return by the time the team heads to Philadelphia early next week. (Chris Cotillo; Masslive) Boston has gotten some criticism throughout the year about having an easy...

Red Sox notebook: Eduardo Rodriguez throws off mound, leaving team optimistic of an August return

Subtitle: Mound session sparks optimismBALTIMORE — The identity of Saturday nights Game 2 starter remains a mystery.Because of starter Nathan Eovaldi managing only 2 2/3 innings Friday night, the Red Sox bullpen went on extra duty. Six relievers were needed, each but one pitching just one inning. Hector Velazquez and doubleheader 26th man call-up William Cuevas were not used, but manager Alex Cora could not say one would start, at least not before David Price takes the ball in Game 1 at 1:05 p.m.“Ill tell you after the first game — we have no idea, honestly,” said Cora after...
