The Boston Red Sox are 3-5 on the season after a loss to the rival New York Yankees 5-1 on Friday night. Pitching, in particular the starting rotation, has been a big issue with few options for manager Ron Roenicke to turn to. David Price was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Mookie Betts deal. Chris Sale underwent Tommy John surgery in March, and of course will miss the entire season.

    BOSTON (CBS) — The Red Sox offense was supposed to carry the team during the shortened 2020 season, but in the early goings of the 60-game campaign, Boston’s usually reliable sluggers aren’t doing much slugging. Instead, Boston’s power is coming from an unlikely source. Catcher Christian Vazquez once again provided all the pop for the Red Sox offense Thursday night against the Mets, mashing a pair of homers and driving in three runs in Boston’s 4-2 victory. Vazquez has carried the Boston offense over the first week of the season, slashing .421/.450/1.105 with a team-leading four homers. Three of those dingers have come over the past two nights, giving Vazquez eight RBIs on the young season — also a team-high....

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Red Sox have the third-highest payroll in Major League Baseball.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — On Friday night, things looked all right for the 2020 Boston Red Sox. No, nobody with any sense of reality expected them to contend for a title. They simply do not have the pitching for that. Yet with a solid debut for this unique shortened season, and with the expanded playoff field officially in effect, the team looked on Opening Day like one that can remain a compelling story throughout the year. Just two days later, though, that is over. And so might be the Red Sox’ season. Hyperbolic? Only moderately, as teams looking to make the playoffs in 2020 cannot lose two games (in grisly fashion) to everybody’s pick for Worst Team...
    BOSTON (CBS) — After shellacking the Orioles on Opening Day, the Red Sox promptly lost two straight to one of the worst teams in all of baseball. In a 60-game season, that simply cannot happen for a team hoping to make a run at the playoffs. But for the Red Sox, it’s easy to pinpoint the issue they had Saturday and Sunday against the lowly O’s. After Nathan Eovaldi gave the team six innings of one-run ball Friday night, Boston’s starting pitching was putrid over the weekend. Martin Perez was tagged for four runs over five innings, and Ryan Weber was hit for six earned over just 3.2 innings. Even with Eovaldi’s Opening Day gem, Boston starters own a 6.97...

    Boston (USA), Jul 24 (EFE) .- The designated hitter J.D. Martinez and Ranger Kevin Pillar each produced three runs and the Boston Red Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles 13-2. Friday marked Boston’s first regular-season game since a low-season restructuring that included a trade by Mookie Betts and pitcher David Price to the Los Angeles Dodgers, in addition to the departure of Puerto Rican driver Alex Cora, involved in a system illegal signal theft when I was with the Houston Astros. The battery featured Venezuelan second baseman José Peraza, ranger Jackie Bradley Jr., Martinez and Pillar, who each connected doubles as part of a four-run third inning. The Red Sox held on to power in the fourth episode, sending 11 hitters...
    BOSTON (AP) — For one night at least, the Boston Red Sox didn’t miss Mookie Betts’ bat. J.D. Martinez and Kevin Pillar each drove in three runs, and the Red Sox rolled past the Baltimore Orioles 13-2 on Friday night in Fenway Park’s first taste of regular season baseball during the coronavirus pandemic. Jackie Bradley Jr., Jose Peraza, Martinez and Pillar each doubled as part of a four-run third inning. Boston kept it going in the fourth, sending 11 batters to the plate and adding six more runs. Nathan Eovaldi (1-0) gave up just one run and five hits, striking out four over six innings in his first career opening day start. Baltimore starter Tommy Milone (0-1) got his first...

In his first season with the Los Angeles Dodgers, the former AL MVP of the Boston Red Sox has just signed a massive contract to seemingly never play for anyone else outside of the Dodgers for the rest of time. Betts is a big fan of calling Los Angeles home these days. Had he gotten that type of offer in Boston, he probably wouldn’t have signed it because he loves living in Los Angeles. So it’s only fitting that Red Sox chairman Tom Werner said not...

    By Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — An odd baseball season is underway, with a lot more unknowns than certainties for both MLB and the Boston Red Sox. With teams set to travel across the country, many are wondering if MLB can even have a season during a pandemic. And with the Red Sox hitting the reset button over the offseason, few are counting on them to be involved when (if) the postseason does arrive. The 2020 season is going to be the weirdest season of baseball. Ever. Players (some of whom will be wearing masks) will take the field in empty stadiums filled with fake crowd noise, minus weekend Fox games, in which the network will create fake...

    BOSTON (CBS) — The Red Sox have set their Opening Day roster for the 2020 season, which includes 30 players (up from the usual 25) due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There are no real surprises on the roster, though the team did make a handful of moves Thursday before the abbreviated 60-game season gets underway on Friday. Boston’s ace, Eduardo Rodriguez, will start the season on the injured list. He got a late start to “summer camp” after coming down with COVID-19, rejoining the team last weekend. With E-Rod on the shelf, Nathan Eovaldi will get the ball in Friday’s opener against the Orioles. Newcomer Dylan Covey and catcher Jonathan Lucroy were both selected to the active roster, while righties...

    The exterior of Fenway Park now features a massive Black Lives Matter banner along Lansdowne Street behind the Green Monster.

    (WBZ)– A lot has changed for the Boston Red Sox since they failed to make the playoffs and finished third in the AL East in 2019. Mookie Betts and David Price got traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers, Ron Roenicke became the new manager of the Sox after Alex Cora got suspended for his role in the Houston Astros cheating scandal and Chris Sale got Tommy John surgery.

The words “Black Lives Matter” are in the Red Sox font, and the team’s logo is also included. The Red Sox Black Lives Matter billboard (WBZ-TV) This isn’t the first time the Red Sox have made their support of the Black Lives Matter movement clear. The team took a stand against racism and police brutality in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police. In early June, Fenway displayed “Black Lives Matter” on its Green Monster scoreboard.
    The Boston Red Sox may have had the most shocking offseason of all the teams. Only two years removed from winning a World Series, Boston decided to unload and trade American League MVP Mookie Betts and veteran pitcher David Price to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The team may have been saved a bit after the season was postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Boston will only have 60 games to make the playoffs and are in as good as a position as any other team to sneak in and potentially capture a second World Series in three years. The Red Sox still boast a ton of good young players who could help the team immensely. The one major difference, however,...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Chaim Bloom is a master of the bargain bin. The Red Sox Chief Baseball Officer added another arm to Boston’s player pool ahead of Tuesday’s exhibition, and it didn’t cost him anything. The Red Sox acquired righty Dylan Covey from the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday, and did not have to give Tampa any compensation because Covey had an assignment clause in his minor league contract. If the 28-year-old found a spot on another team’s 40-man roster, the Rays would have to promote him or set him free. The Rays opted not to promote Covey, and now he’s a member of the Red Sox. To clarify, RH Dylan Covey had an out clause in his minor-league deal...

    BOSTON (CBS) — Eduardo Rodriguez strolled into Fenway Park on Saturday, a happy man that baseball was in front of him — and his battle with COVID-19 was behind him. The Red Sox ace had to wait to get his 2020 season restarted again, after testing positive for COVID-19 in Miami, Florida just before the start of summer camp. Rodriguez said the virus knocked him out for two weeks, as the 27-year-old experienced all the symptoms. “I’ve never been that sick in my life, and I don’t want to get that sick again,” Rodriguez told reporters on a Zoom call Sunday. “I would say the first four days were the worst days. I felt all the symptoms, woke up in...
    What do you know about Pumpsie Green? Some baseball fans know enough to realize what a big deal it was when Green sprung from the Boston Red Sox dugout one July night in 1959 to pinch run for Vic Wertz in an otherwise ordinary game at Chicago’s Comiskey Park. When the kid from El Cerrito High by way of the Richmond playgrounds took Wertz’s place at first base, his name was forever emblazoned in baseball annals as — finally — the first Black player in Red Sox history. Green’s modest debut in a 2-1 loss allowed the Red Sox to evade some criticism and become the last of baseball’s 16 teams to integrate — a disturbingly long 12 years...

    BOSTON (CBS) — The Red Sox appear set to get a little more help for their lackluster rotation. The signing of pitcher Zack Godley is reportedly “imminent.” The right-hander is in Boston, likely awaiting medical clearance to join the Red Sox, according to WEEI’s Rob Bradford. Boston jumped earlier this week when Godley was designated for assignment by the Detroit Tigers, and it appears the pitcher will soon be competing for the fourth starter job in the Red Sox rotation. Boston’s current rotation is made up of Nathan Eovaldi, Martin Perez, Ryan Weber, with Eduardo Rodriguez out of the mix at the moment after testing positive for COVID-19. Brian Johnson is another likely candidate for the fourth spot along with...

He won a World Series ring as a rookie with the Red Sox in 2013 and became a full-time starter the following season. He’s since earned another ring in 2018 and followed that up last year by becoming the first Boston shortstop since Nomar Garciaparra to post 30 home runs and 100 RBIs in a season.
