Will 2015 Be the Year Dustin Pedroia Bounces Back?

Will 2015 Be the Year Dustin Pedroia Bounces Back?

Dustin Pedroia's performance at the plate has fallen off rather steeply the past two years. If you want to know whether he'll bounce back, just watch his hands.

Red Sox vs. Twins: Humberto Quintero starts behind the plate

The Red Sox have an unexpected positional battle on their hands, as Humberto Quintero and Sandy Leon try to make the roster as Ryan Hanigan's backup. It's Humberto Quintero's turn to start at catcher with the regular lineup Monday evening as the Red Sox play a rare spring training night game against the Twins. Boston Red Sox (13-10) Mookie Betts, CF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Hanley Ramirez, LF Pablo Sandoval, 3B Mike Napoli, 1B Shane Victorino, RF Xander Bogaerts, SS Humberto Quintero, C Starting Pitcher -- Justin Masterson We've seen little enough of Quintero so far this spring....

Red Sox vs. Rays: The starting nine (ft. Swihart)?

Blake Swihart is in the starting lineup Sunday afternoon. Does that mean he'll be there next Monday as well? The Red Sox have Blake Swihart in with the starting lineup Sunday afternoon as they take on the Tampa Bay Rays once more. Boston Red Sox (12-10) Mookie Betts, CF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Hanley Ramirez, LF Pablo Sandoval, 3B Mike Napoli, 1B Shane Victorino, RF Xander Bogaerts, SS Blake Swihart, C The question is: do we call this Blake Swihart and the starters, or just the starters? With Christian Vazquez headed to see Dr. James Andrews, it's pretty clear the Red Sox are...

Buchholz preps for Opening Day start

FORT MYERS Fla.--Clay Buchholz made the long bus trip from JetBlue Park to Disney Friday to face the Atlanta Braves in what is his next-to-last tuneup before pitching Opening Day April 6 in Philadelphia against the Phillies. That's weather permitting; thunderstorms were in the forecast. The game is scheduled to be televised by ESPN. With only eight days left before the club breaks camp in Florida, a number of regulars made the trip, including outfielders Mookie Betts and Rusney Castillo, second baseman Dustin Pedroia, and third baseman Pablo Sandoval.

Red Sox vs. Braves: Solid lineup hits the road

It's a long trip to the Braves' home park, but the Red Sox are bringing along some strong talent all the same. The Red Sox have an unusually strong lineup hitting the road Friday afternoon to face the Braves, featuring Dustin Pedroia making a rare appearance at DH. Boston Red Sox (11-9) Mookie Betts, CF Dustin Pedroia, 2B Pablo Sandoval, 3B Allen Craig, 1B Daniel Nava, LF Rusney Castillo, RF Brock Holt, SS Blake Swihart, C Jeff Bianchi, 2B Starting Pitcher -- Clay Buchholz Probably not much to read into Pedroia not playing the field today.

Daily Red Sox Links: David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia, Garin Cecchini

Today's links look at an angry Shane Victorino, a healthy(?) Christian Vazquez, and a clutch Rusney Castillo. David Ortiz wrote about his legacy, among other things, for Derek Jeter's Player Tribune yesterday. It's a fantastic read. (David Ortiz, The Players Tribune) Shane Victorino was fired up yesterday, too, as he responded to those who claimed he threw Mookie Betts under the bus with comments earlier this week. (Scott Lauber; Boston Herald) Dustin Pedroia has certainly dealt with some injuries in recent years, but is that the only reason for his power outage? (Sahadev Sharma; Baseball...

The Red Sox' injury concerns are (mostly) clearing up, as David Ortiz and Mike Napoli make their return to the lineup Thursday afternoon.

Red Sox vs. Marlins lineup: Relay race losers

You lose a relay race in camp, you ride the bus to Jupiter. You do not want to ride the bus to Jupiter. Last year, when the Red Sox visited the Marlins during spring training, they did so with one of the weakest lineups to wear the uniform in recent years, spring or no. This year, the team is apparently doing their best to avoid repeating that controversy. Their solution? A relay race. Losers ride the bus. Boston Red Sox (10-8) Jemile Weeks, 3B Dustin Pedroia, 2B Hanley Ramirez, LF Allen Craig, 1B Garin Cecchini, DH Rusney Castillo, CF Xander Bogaerts, SS Jackie Bradley Jr., RF Blake...

Red Sox vs. Orioles lineup: Christian Vazquez returns as DH

Christian Vazquez is back in the lineup, though he won't be starting behind the plate again just yet. Christian Vazquez will make his return to the Red Sox lineup Friday afternoon, just not at his usual place behind the plate. Instead he'll take on the role of designated hitter, while Ryan Hanigan starts at catcher in his place.

David Ortiz is out of the lineup again Wednesday afternoon due to dehydration. For the second straight home game, David Ortiz is nowhere to be seen, sitting out with dehydration as Pablo Sandoval takes over as the designated hitter.

Red Sox vs. Yankees lineup: Rejoice! The starters hit television

Finally, you can watch the ACTUAL Red Sox play FAKE baseball! Red Sox fans might have been worried that, with much of the starting lineup hitting the road on Thursday, there would be an underwhelming lineup left to play Friday night in a rare televised game against the Yankees. Well worry not, becuase Christian Vazquez and Shane Victorino are the only men absent, with Daniel Nava and Ryan Hanigan providing solid replacements.

Can Mookie Betts save Dustin Pedroia (from himself)?

Dustin Pedroia's numbers have been trending downward these last few years. What can Mookie Betts do to help him reverse course? It's no secret that Dustin Pedroia just hasn't been himself at the plate of late. If you've set your standards high based on the heydays of 2008, 2010, and 2011, you can date this slump back as far as 2012, when Pedroia hit .290/.347/.449 for the Red Sox in a season that went wrong just about every way it could. But even the most lenient of judges can't look past a 2014 campaign which saw the four-time All-Star hit .278/.337/.376 in 609 plate appearances. It was...
