Red Sox vs. Pirates lineup: Xander’s back

The WBC is over and spring training’s one off day has passed. Let’s rock. We’re finally in the home stretch now, kids. The regular season — real Major League Baseball games — are almost within our grasp. Until then, we continue to fumble on in this thing called life, laid low by virulent illnesses borne of the freezing early spring weather. Maybe that’s just me, but I doubt it. Anyhow here’s today’s lineup against the Pirates (1:05 p.m., WEEI). Xander’s back! Dustin Pedroia, 2B Andrew Benintendi, LF Mookie Betts, RF Hanley Ramirez, DH Mitch Moreland, 1B Xander...

Red Sox vs. Yankees lineups: The losing team (sort of) has to travel

Red Sox vs. Yankees lineups: The losing team (sort of) has to travel

Chris Sale gets his first start against the Yankees on Tuesday. Every year towards the end of camp, the Red Sox split the team into two and have the two sides complete an obstacle course of sorts. It’s a team-building exercise that the players actually care about because the losing team has to get on the bus to travel for the next game. This year, that game is in Tampa to face the Yankees, and the losing team was headed by Dustin Pedroia and Hanley Ramirez. However, neither Pedroia nor Ramirez will be making the trip. Smh. #FireFarrell. Here are the players who are making the...

Daily Red Sox Links: Sam Travis, Tyler Thornburg, Steve Selsky

Sam Travis and Steve Selsky are having great springs and have a chance to make the MLB roster. Meanwhile, pitching injuries are hurting the Sox. If Hanley Ramirez can’t play first base because of a shoulder injury, could that open the door for Sam Travis to earn a roster spot as a platoon partner for Mitch Moreland? (Christopher Smith; MassLive) The Red Sox vaunted starting pitching depth has taken hit after hit. If they need to trade for some help, would the Dodgers make a good partner? (Gabe Burns; Dodgers Nation) It’s not just the rotation that has injury issues. The bullpen is...

Could Old Friend Anibal Sanchez Be On Red Sox Radar?

Could Old Friend Anibal Sanchez Be On Red Sox Radar?

Anibal SanchezHe's given up 59 HRs in the last two years. In 2016, he posted a 5.87 ERA in 26 starts for the Detroit Tigers. He was originally drafted by the Red Sox and was part of the blockbuster 2005 deal that sent Hanley Ramirez to the Marlins for Josh Beckett and Mike Lowell. His name is Anibal Sanchez—and for some unfathomable reason he may be a trade target for Boston. In 2012, then Detroit GM Dave Dombrowski honcho acquired Sanchez. Could DD's comfort level with the 33-year-old righty allow him to take a risk on Sanchez again? Let's hope not!

Red Sox vs. Orioles lineup: It would be cool if our pitchers stopped getting hurt

True story! Yeah so the Red Sox are down to five viable starting pitchers, the fifth of whom — Kyle Kendrick — is set to start today. Our fearless editor says not to panic, but he’s headed out to the Grand Canyon and can’t tell us what to do. Candy for dinner? Candy for dinner. Anyhow, Sam Travis was scratched from today’s lineup after taking a pitch the knee yesterday, meaning the following starting nine for today’s 1:05 p.m. tilt at JetBlue Park (WEEI): Marco Hernandez, 2B Pablo Sandoval, 3B Mookie Betts, RF Hanley Ramirez, DH Jackie Bradley Jr., CF Allen Craig,...

Hanley back at first base? 'Moving towards that,' says Farrell

Hanley Ramirez has yet to play a game at first base for the Red Sox in spring training, but John Farrell hinted Saturday that could be coming soon.

Why John Farrell thinks Hanley Ramirez had ‘breakthrough’ in quest to actually play game in the field

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Hanley Ramirez has the luxury of not having to throw a baseball. That is part of his new lot in the life. But it sure would make the Red Sox feel better about their overall plan if he did. Ramirez’s right shoulder continues to not allow for game action at first […]

Sam Travis was born for this. One day after he cemented himself as “the greatest player the Grapefruit League has ever seen,” per our own Matt Collins, and two days after he hit a big ol’ donger, Sam Travis finds himself in the starting lineup for the Red Sox for today’s 1:05 p.m. game (WEEI) against the split-squad Astros.

FORT MYERS, Fla. — There was a reason Hanley Ramirez wanted to play once again in the World Baseball Classic. It looks like a lot of fun.

You can watch tonight’s game on TV, which is good, because you’re not going out in this cold. A day after Kyle Kendrick’s strong spring continued apace and Sam Travis left the yard with a big ol’ donger in a big dumb 3-3 tie again against the Rays, the Sox prepare to host the Pittsburgh Pirates at 6:05 p.m. at JetBlue Park (NESN, WEEI) with their best starter on the mound, all apologies to reigning AL Cy Young Winner and Opening Day starter Rick Porcello.
