2017 Red Sox preview: Who will be the defensive wizard?

2017 Red Sox preview: Who will be the defensive wizard?

Which gold glove candidate will flash the leather the most? We are now in the second half of our superlative series, with this being the fifth of eight installments. Previously, we’ve voted on the Team MVP, Biggest Disappointment, Best Pitcher and Unsung Hero. Today, we’re going to vote on the defensive wizard. This is a surprisingly difficult question for Red Sox fans, because there are at least four elite defensive players on this roster and there could be a few more than are included. In fact, if everyone is playing up to his potential there isn’t a below-average defensive player...

Red Sox Sue App Maker For Non-Payment On Contract

Red Sox Sue App Maker For Non-Payment On Contract

According to the Boston Business Journal, the Red Sox have sued app-maker Giga for not paying agreed-upon amounts in an advertising contract with the team. The Sox are alleging that the app company has not paid required amounts in the early stages of a three-year deal (including placement of ads on The Green Monster). For the 2016 season, Giga was supposed to have paid the Red Sox $2.4 million—with the team claiming they only got $150,000. So, understandably, they are looking for the full amount of the terminated contract ($7.5 million)—plus a 1.5 percent per month late fee. Giga is the...

Josh Rutledge leaves game with hamstring strain

Josh Rutledge leaves game with hamstring strain

Another day, another injury Despite Marco Hernandez’ hot spring, it was always assumed that he’d start the year in Triple-A. Josh Rutledge was ahead of him on the depth chart, and if he isn’t on the active roster he’d be exposed to waivers before the Rockies have an option to take him back in their organization. That equation changed on Tuesday when he left the game in the first inning with a hamstring strain. Left hamstring strain for Josh Rutledge say the #RedSox— Pete Abraham (@PeteAbe) March 28, 2017 This isn’t as impactful as the injuries to David Price and Tyler...

Red Sox see Blake Swihart as still ‘not a finished product’

FORT MYERS, Fla. — If you squint, it remains easy to imagine Blake Swihart as a rare sort of catcher based on his ability to make steady, resounding contact that sends line drives all over the field, and his unusual impact on the bases. There is a reason why, when the Red Sox signed Yoan […]

Hanley Ramirez’s shoulder putting Chris Young’s new role on hold

FORT MYERS, Fla. — The plan seemed like a feasible one. Against left-handed starting pitchers, Hanley Ramirez would move to first base with Chris Young sliding into the designated hitter spot. Considering how Young typically tortures southpaws — finishing last season with a .999 OPS — it made sense. But, as we sit here, the […]

Red Sox send right-hander Kyle Kendrick to minor-league camp, but maybe not for long

The Red Sox announced on Tuesday that right-hander Kyle Kendrick has been reassigned to minor-league camp. How long he stays there is another question entirely. Kendrick, 32, has impressed this spring, going 3-0 with a 2.17 ERA and 26 strikeouts vs. just four walks in 29 innings. The veteran right-hander hasn’t appeared in the big […]

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Who’s on first? Not Hanley Ramirez. Not yet, anyway. But he says he still wants to go back there. The offseason blueprint for the post-Ortiz Red Sox calls for Ramirez to serve as DH against righthanded starters while lefty-swinging Mitch Moreland plays first base. On days when lefties start (there are […]

SARASOTA, Fla. — There wasn’t anything Blake Swihart could do.He had an impressive spring training, showing improved receiving ability and a better throwing arm behind the plate after transitioning from the outfield back to catcher. And he hit .325.But his time in Red Sox camp came to an end yesterday when he was optioned back to Triple-A Pawtucket where he’s slated to begin the season.“Blake had a very strong camp and showed improvements defensively,” manager John Farrell said. “Swung the bat very well.

Hanley Ramirez has yet to make an appearance at first base this spring, something that’s barely on the radar for most Red Sox fans.But it should be.Though the plan this season is for newly lovable Hanley to do most of his work at designated hitter as the Sox transition to Life Without David Ortiz, there also is an expectation that occasional time at first base will be part of the arrangement.Remember?Offseason acquisition Mitch Moreland will play first base most of the time, but Hanley will get the starts against left-handers. Somebody else — say, Chris Young — will be the DH.Except...
