David Price Is Likely Out Until Some Time In May

David Price Is Likely Out Until Some Time In May

In typical Red Sox medical team fashion, David Price's elbow was assessed as showing "improved strength" in his latest test—meaning he'll be out until sometime in May. Translated from the 'Yawkeyese': you might see him before the All-Star Break. Price will continue with "light catch" (whatever the hell that is), and we're sure that—in a few weeks—we'll hear that a lack of improvement will push the lefty's debut into August. Get prepared for a "Price-less" 2017.

A Red Sox Fan’s Guide to the 2017 Fantasy Baseball Season

A Red Sox Fan’s Guide to the 2017 Fantasy Baseball Season

Don’t let your fanhood get in the way of collecting those fantasy duckets. As we come ever closer to baseball season, there is another season that will get underway as well. That would be fantasy baseball season. Maybe not the juggernaut of a cultural phenomenon that its football counterpart is, fantasy baseball is still a wonderful way to sit in the GM’s chair and stay connected all year long. Of course, the best part of the fantasy season is the draft. That’s not up for debate, it’s simply a fact. Coming up with a strategy and building your roster is inarguably addictive. It’s...

Red Sox at Rays, vs. Phillies lineups: Divide and conquer

Red Sox at Rays, vs. Phillies lineups: Divide and conquer

Two games for the price of... well, two. You know those Red Sox that are, like, double Red Sox? Those are the best, and we’ve got said split-squad action today, folks. Some of the Red Sox will take on the Rays at 1:05 (MLB.tv on the Rays feed) while the other half hosts the Phillies at the same time on NESN and WEEI. Let’s dig into it. First, here are the Sox who will make the trek for to Port Charlotte for the Tampa game, aka the B team: Rusney Castillo, CF Pablo Sandoval, 3B Chris Young, DH Josh Rutledge, 1B Marco Hernandez, 2B Blake Swihart, C Steve Selsky, RF Bryce Brentz,...

A look into the Boston Red Sox future: Danny Mars

Prospects aren’t as hard to come by for the Boston Red Sox as some people may believe. Due to their prospect sell-off, the thought is that their farm system has run dry. That’s not true though, as prospects like Danny Mars are out to prove. Mars was drafted in the sixth round of the 2014 draft.

Jamie Callahan gives the Boston Red Sox an elite relief prospect

Headlines have not been scarce for the Boston Red Sox this Spring. Due to that, plenty of stories tend to take a backseat. One of those stories happens to be Jamie Callahan. The 22-year-old reliever doesn’t find himself in the Red Sox top 30 prospects. That’s more-than-likely due to his past seasons. Although he’s gotten better in […] The post Jamie Callahan gives the Boston Red Sox an elite relief prospect appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Red Sox 2, Blue Jays 3: I was saying Drew earns (runs)

But not all hope is lost for Big Pom. A week ago, it looked like Drew Pomeranz was in line to miss the start of the season. A few hours ago, it looked like he might not get out of the first inning. Now he says he’s doing well. So... progress? Must be.

Big Papi's Post-Retirement Role With Sox Still Unclear

Big Papi's Post-Retirement Role With Sox Still Unclear

With Opening Day just ten days away, the role of David Ortiz on the 2017 Red Sox remains undefined. While multiple sources have suggested things like broadcasting, roving instruction or marketing—nothing has been solidified. Apparently, the main reason is that Ortiz is so busy with a multitude of non-baseball activities. Team President Sam Kennedy recently stated, "We will continue to chat and put something together when the time is right for him". It seems clear that Big Papi will not be a ubiquitous presence around the clubhouse—at least not at the start of the season. Stay tuned.

Red Sox at Blue Jays lineup: The rest of the best

The Sox roll out a reserve-heavy lineup today. It’s a light day in Red Sox Nation. A day after Dustin Pedroia raised his spring average to .500 and Pablo Sandoval just kept hitting, the Sox roll out a lineup heavy on second-teamers against the Jays, with a recovered Drew Pomeranz on the mound (1:07 p.m., televised on MLB.tv through the Jays feed). Here’s that with which we’re workin’: Brock Holt, SS, \o/ Josh Rutledge, 2B Marco Hernandez, 3B Sam Travis, 1B Blake Swihart, DH Steve Selsky, RF Rusney Castillo, CF Bryce Brentz, LF Christian Vazquez, C SP: Drew...

Predicting the 2017 Red Sox with Out of the Park Baseball

Predicting the 2017 Red Sox with Out of the Park Baseball

How does the sim game see Boston’s year going? Out of the Park Baseball came out this week, which usually means I’ve done literally nothing but play Out of the Park Baseball. Being on vacation, I haven’t played as much as years past, but I’ve still gotten a chance to mess around with it. If you aren’t familiar with it, OOTP is a text-based sim game that allows you to take over as GM, Manager or both of your favorite team of a fictional team. It is outstanding and one of my favorite days of every year is when it is released. It is also a relatively realistic sim game, so for the...

Twinkies, Moncada And The Ultimate Question Of Life

Twinkies, Moncada And The Ultimate Question Of Life

In Douglas Adams' brilliant Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the answer to the 'Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything' is the number 42. For former Red Sox prospect Yoan Moncada that number has clearly more than doubled to 85. That's how many Twinkies Moncada once ate in a single week—clearly dealing with one of the ultimate questions of life. Of course, he also bought a $500,000 Lamborghini with part of the $31.5 million the Red Sox handed to him. Despite that windfall, Moncada could not be bothered by taking mandatory English lessons. Between this kind of attitude and...

2017 Red Sox top prospect voting: Trey Ball’s last chance

2017 Red Sox top prospect voting: Trey Ball’s last chance

Can Trey Ball finally make good on at least some of his potential? Well, based on the comment sections on the posts leading up to this entry, this is going to be something of a controversial pick. Despite his current capital-B Bust status, Trey Ball comes in as our number 17 prospect. He took 20 percent of the vote. By now, Ball’s origin story with the organization is pretty well known. A tall, lanky, projectable lefty coming out of high school, he was selected with the number seven overall pick in the 2013 draft. This was supposed to be the team’s reward for suffering through the Bobby...

The Dave Dombrowski era has been highlighted by no shortage of major trades, as Dombrowski has no problem pulling the trigger. But how does he grade as President of Baseball Operations?

Boston Red Sox: Pablo Sandoval seeks comeback player award

Pablo Sandoval came into the Spring hoping to win back his job with the Boston Red Sox. Days before the start of the regular season, it’s safe to assume he’s done just that.

The 30-year-old is hitting .362 (.378 on-base percentage) […] The post Boston Red Sox: Pablo Sandoval seeks comeback player award appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Red Sox 10, Pirates 7: Pedey, Pablo raise up Sox

Take your shirt off, spin it like a helicopter. Fresh as daisies after a day off, the Red Sox put a whupping on the Pirates today at JetBlue Park. Here’s how it went down. Dustin Pedroia, destroyer of worlds Pedroia is hitting everything in sight this spring. Today he went 3-3 with a double and a walk to raise his average to .500, which we’ll take. When Pedroia’s healthy he’s always been good, and he seems pretty dang healthy right now, and is thus, you know, quite good.
