Red Sox 3, Twins 5: Drew Pomeranz isn’t ready

Red Sox 3, Twins 5: Drew Pomeranz isn’t ready

Drew Pomeranz still has some work to do. The Red Sox lost to the Twins by two runs on Wednesday afternoon, and the biggest reason was a poor performance from their second pitcher. Drew Pomeranz isn’t quite there yet Red Sox lefty Drew Pomeranz didn’t get the start against the Twins on Wednesday — that went to Rick Porcello, who we’ll get to in just a minute — but he did get to toss four innings. With David Price on the shelf, the team needs Pomeranz to be ready as soon as possible so they don’t have to dip into their depth to start the year. Unfortunately, that doesn’t appear...

Daily Red Sox Links: Tyler Thornburg, Christian Vazquez, Daisuke Matsuzaka

Today Tyler Thornburg goes to the DL, Christian Vazquez gets a roster spot and Dice-K tries a comeback. So Tyler Thornburg, one of the big pickups for the Red Sox this offseason, will begin the year on the DL, but Boston isn’t going to make any moves to replace him. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald) Speaking of pitchers that aren’t going to be ready for opening day, David Price’s diagnosis may not have been season-ending, but his choice of a slow rehab instead of surgery might not work. (Evan Drellich; CSNNE) The Red Sox are the favorite to win the AL Easy by most projections....

Tyler Thornburg likely to start the year on the disabled list

The curse of new Boston relievers continues. Well, the Red Sox have just suffered another blow to their Opening Day roster. After learning that David Price will definitely miss the beginning of the season and may not be ready to pitch again until May, we have now learned that new set-up man Tyler Thornburg will likely miss the start of the year as well. Tyler Thornburg very likely to start year on DL, Dombrowski says, but won't decide until testing tomorrow. MRI likely.

Today’s links look at the encouraging spring for Pablo Sandoval, how Hanley Ramirez will play without David Ortiz, and Rick Porcello’s experience in Boston. It’s still just spring, but it’s still hard not to be excited about the spring Pablo Sandoval is having. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe) Among all the big names in Boston’s rotation, Eduardo Rodriguez might be the most important one. (Matt Kory; BP Boston) Can Hanley Ramirez keep slugging as he did in 2016 without David Ortiz in the lineup?

Red Sox notebook: Small step for David Price

Subtitle: Positive examination stillstep forward for left-hander FORT MYERS — After meeting a strength benchmark and undergoing a further examination yesterday, David Price was cleared to “throw” a baseball again. In Price’s case, that means playing a game of “short catch” inside a batting cage.There is no timetable on when Price will be cleared to throw outdoors on flat ground, never mind from a mound. Price has a strain of his flexor mass muscle near his left elbow that he described yesterday as “a little hiccup.”However, the examination represented one step forward, albeit...

FORT MYERS, Fla. — While John Farrell spoke to the media Saturday morning, Hanley Ramirez could be seen having a intense discussion with infield instructor Brian Butterfield. A little while later, it was Farrell and Butterfield who were meeting up with Ramirez, with the Sox’ cleanup hitter holding his first baseman’s mitt. It seems as […]

David Price Is Likely Out Until Some Time In May

In typical Red Sox medical team fashion, David Price's elbow was assessed as showing "improved strength" in his latest test—meaning he'll be out until sometime in May. Translated from the 'Yawkeyese': you might see him before the All-Star Break. Price will continue with "light catch" (whatever the hell that is), and we're sure that—in a few weeks—we'll hear that a lack of improvement will push the lefty's debut into August. Get prepared for a "Price-less" 2017.

FORT MYERS -- After meeting a strength benchmark this afternoon, David Price has been cleared to "throw" a baseball again -- if you consider a game of short catch inside a batting cage to be throwing. There is still no timetable on when the left-handed starter, who has a strain of his flexor mass muscle near his left elbow that he described today as "a little hiccup," will be cleared to throw flat-ground catch, never mind get back on a mound.But today's examination represented one step forward, albeit a tiny one.
