Michael Chavis didn't want to put his rookie season on pause, but he didn't really have a choice. His injured shoulder helped put up the stop sign and suddenly the infielder found himself with some unexpected time to reflect. "When you’re in the middle of things it’s kind of tough to look at what...

Spring training represented a whirlwind of experiences for Bobby Dalbec. For the first time, the infielder was immersed into the world of major leaguers, having lived life as one of the spring training invitees with a locker down at the end of the home team's clubhouse at JetBlue Park. With eyes...

Jackie Bradley Jr. made history Tuesday night. The Red Sox outfielder hit a home run in the second inning of his team's 10-6 win over the Rockies that wasn't your average round-tripper. The 478-foot homer launched into the third deck of the right-center field stands at Coors Field was the longest...

The Red Sox did their part once again, Brock Holt in particular. It was the Sox infielder who stepped to the plate to lead off the ninth inning against one of the best closers in the game Kirby Yates and launched a go-ahead home run on the first pitch he saw. One scoreless inning from closer...

Just when it looked like Pablo Sandoval was setting himself up for life beyond that five-year contract he signed with the Red Sox prior to the 2015 season, the 33-year-old's career has hit another roadblock. The Giants announced Saturday that Sandoval's season was coming to an end due to...

The strategy of using the reliever to face the meat of the opponents' batting order -- regardless of the inning -- has taken a detour, with the Red Sox for intent-and-purposes dubbing Brandon Workman as their ninth-inning guy.

Charlie Berksza made history Thursday afternoon. He may have been the first Red Sox fan who attended the completion of a game that began when he wasn’t even born. Aug. 9 young Charlie came into this world (two days after the Sox and Royals were forced to stop their game in the 10th inning)...
