Daily Red Sox Links: David Price, Dustin Pedroia, Blake Swihart

Today’s links look at how the Red Sox can win the World Series, David Price’s standing with the fans, and Joe Kelly proving himself. Matt Kory takes a look at what will need to happen if the Red Sox are to make a run at the World Series. (Matt Kory; BP Boston) If David Price pitches well out of the bullpen in the postseason, fans will stop hating him, right? RIGHT?! (Chad Finn; Boston.com) The Red Sox are making sure Dustin Pedroia stays healthy, which is great. However, while Eduardo Nuñez remains out that means we’ll be seeing more of Brock Holt than many would like. (Jason...

Boston Red Sox: Time for Blake Swihart to steal some at-bats

When the Boston Red Sox called up Blake Swihart at the start of September, there was a pretty obvious reason for the move. Having three catchers never hurts, and it gave Boston flexibility should one (or both) of the catchers have to leave a game. Now it’s time for him to get some at-bats though. There are […] The post Boston Red Sox: Time for Blake Swihart to steal some at-bats appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Today’s links look at the upcoming schedule, the quick turnaround for Red Sox travel, and Rafael Devers meeting a viral star. The Red Sox are obviously coming off a tough stretch of baseball, but the good news is that they have a weak schedule coming up. (Steve Buckley; Boston Herald) Chris Sale hasn’t quite looked the same of late, but he’s not worried about the performance or his workload. (Christopher Smith; Masslive) One of the big reasons the Red Sox were able to build their lead in the division was the success of Dave Dombrowski’s in-season acquisitions. (Sean McAdam; Boston...

AL East Notes: Swihart, Yankees, Castillo

The Red Sox have been getting Blake Swihart experience at first base, and he’s also been taking grounders at third base, writes Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe. Boston also plans to send the 25-year-old former top prospect to winter ball this year, which will allow him to make up for some missed time (due…

Red Sox set to activate Dustin Pedroia and Matt Barnes; Call-up four minor leaguers

A busy day in transactions is coming on September 1. It is the first of September, so go pay your rent and then come back and read about the players joining the Red Sox roster as it expands out to 40 spots. You back? Okay, it’s a busy day for Boston -- and teams around the league — as the Red Sox get back two key members of their roster as well as four minor leaguers who can provide some key depth down the stretch. Coming off the disabled list are Dustin Pedroia and Matt Barnes, both of whom will play large roles in September. Joining them will be Blake Swihart, Sam Travis, Roenis Elias...

Red Sox Minor Lines: Bobby Dalbec is starting to hit

Bobby Dalbec is heating up for the end of the year. Pawtucket L 2-4 Deven Marrero: 0-5, 2 K Bryce Brentz: 1-4, 1 K Blake Swihart: 0-4, 2 K Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 K Justin Haley: 7 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 4 K Carson Smith: 1 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 0 K Rough one for Smith, who I wouldn’t expect to see up today but will certainly be up once Pawtucket’s season ends next week. As for those who will be up, John Farrell said to expect three or four promotions, and I’d expect most of them to be pitchers. It’s also possible that Sam Travis’ day off could mean he’ll be called up...

Boston Red Sox: What Blake Swihart brings for September

The Boston Red Sox wasted no time taking advantage of the expanded rosters. On September 1, they called up four players. What will Blake Swihart bring to the table in the final month of the season? It’s not a stretch to say Blake Swihart’s numbers this season do not warrant a call up to the Majors.

Red Sox Minor Lines: Jason Groome loses control

Jason Groome walks everyone on Tuesday.

He won’t get any starts, or at least I’d be shocked if he did, but don’t be surprised if he can provide some solid value as a lefty who can toss multiple innings in the final month of the...

Boston Red Sox: Blake Swihart should get a shot in September

Sandy Leon‘s up-and-down season continued in his last start. The Boston Red Sox catcher went 2-for-3 with one walk and a double, as well as two runs batted in and one run scored. He’s been far from reliable at the plate though. Meanwhile, Blake Swihart‘s been even less reliable in Triple-A. For the Pawtucket Red Sox, Swihart […] The post Boston Red Sox: Blake Swihart should get a shot in September appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Red Sox Minor Lines: Justin Haley picks up where he left off

Justin Haley has impressed since rejoining Pawtucket’s rotation. Pawtucket L 1-6 Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 K Sam Travis: 1-4, 1 K Bryce Brentz: 1-4 Blake Swihart: 0-3, 1 K Justin Haley: 6 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 5 K Kyle Martin: 1 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 1 BB, 2 K Williams Jerez: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K Another strong start from Haley, who is picking up right where he left on in his last stint with the organization. Like with Beeks, there might be a slight chance Haley is called up in September — particularly because he has some experience out of a major-league bullpen — since he’ll need...
