Red Sox lineup: Chris Young, Ryan Hanigan get starts

With left-hander Drew Smyly starting for the Rays in their series-opener against the Red Sox Tuesday night at Fenway Park, Sox manager John Farrell gives Chris Young the nod once again in left field. Young, who Farrell noted in the offseason would play against all lefty starters, is just 2-for-15 to start the season. He […]

The Red Sox recalled Christian Vazquez, and a Ryan Hanigan trade feels imminent

The Red Sox aren't going to carry three catchers forever, so everything points to a Hanigan deal. The Red Sox sent outfielder Rusney Castillo to Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday, and late on Thursday, they used the open roster spot to call up catcher Christian Vazquez. At first glance, it's a bit confusing, as the Sox already have two catchers on the roster and probably could have used some infield help that isn't Josh Rutledge after placing Pablo Sandoval on the disabled list. Bringing Vazquez up does make one thing clear, though: the Red Sox and Ryan Hanigan might not be together for much...

Red Sox To Activate And Promote Christian Vazquez

The Vazquez "Gun" In ActionAs we predicted, the Red Sox will activate (and promote to the major league roster) catcher Christian Vazquez on Friday. Regarded as an elite defensive backstop, Vazquez may immediately be inserted into the line-up—if for no other reason than to help the dismal starting rotation. Of course, this begs the question of what happens to current catching duo of Blake Swihart and Ryan Hanigan. There still may be a trade in the offing for Hanigan to the Texas Rangers—since their main catcher is sidelined for three months. On the other hand, Swihart could be sent down to...

Red Sox lineup: Ryan Hanigan catches starter Joe Kelly

It will be another standard lineup for the Red Sox in the series finale with the Orioles, but with only one exception. Ryan Hanigan will catch Red Sox starter Joe Kelly, as Blake Swihart gets the night off. Hanigan caught Kelly’s first start in Toronto last weekend. Travis Shaw again starts at third base, while […]

Catcher Injury Opens Trade Window For Rangers And Sox

Texas catcher Robinson Chirinos will be out for three months with a fractured right forearm. The Rangers were already thin in the backstop department, and now they are in full panic mode. Enter your Boston Red Sox—flush with catching depth. The most likely Texas target would be Ryan Hanigan—a solid veteran that could immediately solve their short-term issues. The real question is how much Boston could get in return for the Andover High School grad. Given their situation, the haul should be bigger than it would be normally. Christian Vazquez is still on a slow, careful track back from...
