Alex Cora said in June that it seemed like the Red Sox had an easier time mounting big comebacks than protecting leads, and with Boston overturning a five-run deficit in Toronto on Thursday, he might have had a point. Marco Hernandez, who’s making a habit of coming through in big moments, went...

Sale went 5.2 innings and gave up five runs on nine hits — including three homers — while walking two and striking out only five, another uninspiring start from the...

Christian Vazquez only got one start at designated hitter in the entire 2018 season. That came on June 7 against Detroit pitcher Matthew Boyd. It was the kind of lineup luxury afforded Red Sox manager Alex Cora for much of the season because he was carrying three catchers, with the presence of...

When Blake Swihart was designated for assignment we were distracted from what really mattered. The first focus immediately shifted on Swihart, the former first-round pick who many believed simply wasn't given the kind of chance he deserved. Then there was the conversation regarding Sandy Leon,...

Athough not as crazy as Monday, Tuesday is another interesting lineup for the Red Sox. Two days after fouling a pitch off his foot, Andrew Benintendi remains out, and fresh off of being recalled Sandy Leon will be behind the plate catching Red Sox starter Chris Sale. J.D. Martinez will play left...

The Red Sox made two call-ups Tuesday prior to their two-game series against the Yankees. One was for the long haul, while the other might just be serving as a stopgap. The Sox promoted both catcher Sandy Leon and Erasmo Ramirez to the big league club, designated Blake Swihart for assignment...

Through the first 15 games of the 2019 season, Red Sox starting pitchers have only worked through the sixth inning four times. It took 14 games for one to record an out in the seventh inning (Eduardo Rodriguez vs. Baltimore on Friday). Opponents are mashing the starting rotation to the tune of a ...
