FORT MYERS, Fla. -- As Red Sox manager John Farrell pointed out after his team's 4-3 win over the Mets Monday, any time a starter is forced to walk-off the mound in the middle of an outing there should be cause for concern. But in the case of Joe Kelly -- who had to exit in the third inning after...

BRADENTON, Fla. -- It was two years ago Wednesday that the conversation really amped up. That's when Jackie Bradley launched the first pitch of a game against Miami's Kevin Slowey over the left-center field fence, kicking off a three-hit day for the then-22-year-old. "It doesn't seem too long ago...

TAMPA -- Chances are the biggest takeaway from the Red Sox ' 10-6 win over the Yankees at Steinbrenner Field Wednesday won't be the fact that John Farrell 's team has now won six straight. And few will probably take note that the Sox finished their day with 18 hits. No, the highlights will likely...

JUPITER, Fla. -- Wade Miley got his work in and right-hander Matt Barnes continued to impress in an otherwise nondescript 3-0 victory over the Cardinals on Monday. Miley tossed three shutout innings, but he wasn't exactly sharp, allowing three hits and two walks, along with two strikeouts. "It's...

JUPITER, Fla. -- Allen Craig was once an MVP candidate for the Cardinals. Now he's little more than a fifth outfielder/trade bait for the Red Sox . Finding him playing time -- especially because he was once a regular -- won't be easy. "It'€™ll be a challenge," manager John Farrell said on Monday...

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Observations from the Red Sox ' 6-3 victory over the Mets: XANDER TIME : The story of this one was definitely Xander Bogaerts. The shortstop continued his torrid spring by going 2-for-3 with an opposite-field single and three-run homer down the left-field line. Read what you...

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Red Sox prospect Sean Coyle was supposed to start Sunday, but he took a ball off the lip in batting practice and was replaced in the starting lineup by Jemile Weeks. It's too bad Coyle can't play, because he's a fascinating prospect. Despite standing just 5-foot-8, Coyle has...
