Red Sox pregame notes: Mookie Betts, Rusney Castillo being exposed to other OF spots; Allen Craig’s new role

With the news that Hanley Ramirez won’t play the outfield again in 2015, it opens the door for the younger Red Sox outfielders to get exposure at other outfield positions as the team looks to find the best alignment possible for 2016. Mookie Betts has just played center field, so he will get some work […]

Red Sox call up Allen Craig, three others

Allen Craig is back in Boston, for better or worse. The Red Sox have called up Allen Craig, Sandy Leon, Noe Ramirez, and Ryan Cook as rosters expand. Hopefully, this means very, very little. Sandy Leon, Noe Ramirez, and Ryan Cook are what they are. Ramirez and Cook are extra arms in a terribly thin (and frankly just terrible) bullpen. Sandy Leon is a third catcher who will likely only get playing time in an emergency or due to injury. Allen Craig is where things get...sketchy. Adding him to the 40-man roster has tax implications for the Red Sox, but those can be mitigated by simply DFAing...

Red Sox might call up Allen Craig in September

Or at least Ken Rosenthal thinks so, even if it all seems a bit...pointless. It's been three months since the Red Sox outrighted Allen Craig to Triple-A Pawtucket, removing him from both their 25- and 40-man rosters in one fell swoop. Now, Ken Rosenthal speculates that, with Dave Dombrowski freshly installed as the president of baseball operations, the Red Sox look to get him back in the majors come September call-ups. I, for one, am skeptical. As it stands, Craig has done little to suggest that anything has changed since he was sent down. His time in Pawtucket has produced a line of...

Red Sox minor lines: Yoan Moncada is missing

Please, Red Sox, return our prodigal son to us. Pawtucket L 2-3 Deven Marrero: 1-4Alen Craig: 0-2, 2 BBGarin Cecchini: 1-3, BBMarco Hernandez: 2-4, K Noe Ramirez: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K Allen Craig's minor league season doesn't exactly have folks clamoring to have him back up to the majors and playing at first base, but he's at least put up a .368 OBP. The problem is that there's not much indication that he can actually hit still. Just that he can take a walk from wild Triple-A pitchers. Portland W 2-1 Manuel Margot: 0-4Sam Travis: 2-4, SB, E Williams Jerez: 2 IP, 1 H, 1...
