2017 Red Sox Positional Preview: The Infield

2017 Red Sox Positional Preview: The Infield

Looking at the organization’s infield outlook heading into the season. In this final week before the regular season finally begins, we’ll be taking a look at the organization as a whole by position groups. This will include the starters, the bench players, the immediate depth, the high-level prospects and the low-level prospects. By my arbitrary definition, the high-level prospects include those in Double- or Triple-A, and low-level prospects including everyone else. Today, we’ll look at the infielders. The Starters Mitch Moreland, Dustin Pedroia, Xander Bogaerts, Pablo Sandoval,...

Everything seems all right for Pablo Sandoval

Everything seems all right for Pablo Sandoval

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. — The feeling was unfamiliar. Pablo Sandoval, in his third at-bat of the day against Rays lefthander Blake Snell on Saturday, turned on a 92-mile-per-hour fastball and smashed it over the fence for a three-run homer. When was the last time Sandoval had gone deep while batting righthanded? “I don’t remember,” he […]

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.

Silverman: Christian Vazquez deserves starting catcher job

FORT MYERS — There should be no stopping Christian Vazquez now.Sandy Leon is a good catcher, but yesterday the obvious became crystal clear.Vazquez is better.And because he is, he deserves to be the Red Sox’ starting catcher.The Red Sox don’t like to participate in these types of late-March proclamations, but they’ll come around.They usually do.They have eyes.They saw how Travis Shaw did everything but step on the massive neck of Pablo Sandoval last year in spring training, and gave him the third baseman’s job.This contest has been closer, with Blake Swihart getting consideration,...
