Is Deven Marrero learning new positions to set up a Red Sox trade?

The Red Sox have a few of their blocked Triple-A prospects learning new positions, where they are also blocked. Is this preparation for an eventual trade? The Red Sox have a whole bunch of prospects at Triple-A Pawtucket, and while it's an impressive group, many of them are blocked at their current positions. Shortstop Deven Marrero is one such player, as are third baseman Garin Cecchini and second baseman Sean Coyle. While all three could be big-league players -- and at least one of them likely a very good one -- Xander Bogaerts, Pablo Sandoval, and Dustin Pedroia, respectively, stand in...

Is Dustin Pedroia's power back?

Dustin Pedroia has hit for good power in the first few weeks of the season. Is it here to stay? At this point it is certainly no secret that Dustin Pedroia has watched his production fall off swiftly in the power department. Since the start of the 2010 season, his Isolated Power has fallen from .205 to .167 to .160 to .114 to .098. The second baseman has blamed the decline on injuries, saying when he finally gets a full, healthy season under his belt he’ll be able to hit the ball like he used to. I have been one of the bigger skeptics of this argument, finding it hard to believe that...

Rays 0, Red Sox 1: Archer Dazzles, Offense Falls Flat In Loss

Chris Archer strikes out nine but it isn't enough as the bats go silent. The Rays dropped their fourth consecutive game Monday, dropping their home record to an abysmal 1-6 and overall record to 6-8. The game, which clocked in at 2:48, didn't feature a ton of action overall. There was just one extra base hit -- a Shane Victorino double in the ninth -- and the only run was scored via an error. Let's take a look at how the Red Sox scored that run. After retiring Brock Holt on a line drive to short, and a subsequent infield single and walk, Chris Archer faced Dustin Pedroia. Pedroia slapped...

Sox Do Reverse Smith Barney, Beat O's 7-1

(AP Photo)They didn't earn it—five runs, that is. The Red Sox scored five un-earned runs and enjoyed a good start by Justin Masterson to win a rain-shortened Patriot's Day tilt, 7-1. Masterson allowed just a single run on three hits over five innings. He had six strikeouts. The offensive stars today were Dustin Pedroia (2 hits and an RBIZ) and Allen Craig (a hit and an RBI after replacing the ill Hanley Ramirez). Mookie Betts singled in the first, stole second and took third on Ryan Lavarnway's error. He later scored. Also, Andover High's Ryan Hanigan scored a key run scampering around all...

Dustin Pedroia bunts for first time in almost three years

It didn’t seem like a familiar sight, and, as it turned out, it wasn’t. For the first time in almost three years Dustin Pedroia put down a sacrifice bunt, this time pushing a Wei-Yin Chen third-inning pitch down the first base line to move along Ryan Hanigan to third base and Mookie Betts to second.

Red Sox lineup: Dustin Pedroia returns, Brock Holt to play 3B in place of Pablo Sandoval

After getting the day off Sunday, Dustin Pedroia returns to the Red Sox‘ starting lineup for his team’s series finale against the Orioles. It would seem like an opportune time for the second baseman to re-emerge for the Sox, as he is 14-for-27 (.519) against Baltimore starter Wei-Yin Chen. Brock Holt, who carries a six-game […]

Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia gets first day off this season with more likely to come

Dustin Pedroia is the last of the Red Sox starters to get a day off, but he should expect a few more this season.

Red Sox 'Wade' Into Big Trouble; Lose, 10-5

(AP Photo)Get ready for the Wade Miley/Miley Cyrus jokes. The quick-working—or maybe quick-"twerking" (hat-tip to @redsoxmonster)—Red Sox lefty went a "robust" 2 1/3 innings today—yielding seven earned runs on five hits and three walks. Not surprisingly, Boston lost the rubber game to "the franchise formerly known as the Expos", 10-5. After falling behind 2-0 early, The Carmine Hose made another comeback against the pathetic Nats defense to tie the game at two apiece. But it was to no avail as Miley had nothing—not unlike Justin Masterson last night. Dustin Pedroia got two more hits...

Pesky Sox Bail Out Masterson; Beat Nats, 8-7

Count this one as a 'gimmee'. The Red Sox had no business pulling out a win tonight, but—thanks to a hapless Nationals "defense"—they eeked out a comeback 8-7 win at Fenway. In the seventh-inning comeback, Washington made three errors and their pitchers hit two batters—allowing Boston to score three runs without the benefit of a hit. Justin Masterson, ahead by a 5-1 score until the fifth, imploded and coughed up six runs. The offensive star were Dustin Pedroia—(going 3-4 including his third home-run), and Brock Holt (2-4 with the go-ahead RBI). On the injury front, it looks as if the...

Red Sox vs. Phillies lineup: Red Sox return to Opening Day starters with series on the line

David Ortiz and Shane Victorino are back in the lineup Thursday, but the weather that could prove the biggest difference for the offense.

Red Sox vs. Phillies lineups: Shane Victorino, David Ortiz sit as Rick Porcello takes the hill

The Red Sox may have scored eight on Opening Day, but with so many bodies to choose from, there are some lineup changes for Game 2. The Red Sox will have Mike Napoli at first and Daniel Nava in right field against the Phillies as they send Rick Porcello to the mound for his first regular season start with the team. Boston Red Sox (1-0) Mookie Betts, CF Dustin Pedroia, 2B Pablo Sandoval, 3B Hanley Ramirez, LF Mike Napoli, 1B Daniel Nava, RF Ryan Hanigan, C Xander Bogaerts, SS Rick Porcello, P Philadelphia Phillies (0-1) TBA So there are three elephants in the room with this lineup... 1)...

Red Sox Go 'Homer Happy'; Rout Phillies, 8-0

 (Photo by Drew Hallowell/)Before we forget, Clay Buchholz pitched seven brilliant shutout innings today—striking out nine and giving up just three hits. That should be the story of the game, but the fact that Red Sox hitters clouted five home runs (tying an Opening Day record) was the stuff going on and off in lights at Citizens Bank Park in an 8-0 Boston win. Hanley Ramirez and Dustin Pedroia each had two round-trippers (one of Ramirez's being a grand slam), while Mookie Betts went yard for the other. Cole Hamels (whose Boston-area trade value dropped precipitously) gave up four of the...
