He allowed just three hits (two singles and a double), struck out seven and got six groundball outs in 5 2/3 innings. But his ongoing struggle to throw strikes continues to limit him. He threw just 61 of 104 pitches...

In the same way that Jackie Bradley Jr. forced an expectation and presumption of his mid-year promotion in 2012, Garin Cecchini is starting to do the same this year. The situations aren't precisely analogous, since a) as an outfielder, Bradley didn't face the same kind of positional bottlenecks...

This isn't the same Allen Webster who opened eyes in spring training. The right-hander currently in Triple-A Pawtucket bears some important similarities to the pitcher who showed off-the-charts stuff down in the Grapefruit League .

This is why Xander Bogaerts is the top prospect in the Red Sox system. At 20, he continues to out-perform much older players at an advanced level even as he continues his education in the game. For the first time in 2013, Bogaerts went deep for Double-A Portland on Thursday, driving a first-inning...
