He helped the Boston Red Sox win the World Series last year. Now he’s in spring training, still trying to prove he fits in – as their starting shortstop.“Hopefully, this year I can win the job,” Bogaerts said...

Stellar season with Red Sox hasn’t changed Koji Uehara
The pitcher, who will turn 39 in April, is entering his sixth season in the major leagues after a 10-season career in Japan.
By Maureen Mullen

FORT MYERS, Fla. – He’s written a book. He’s endorsing a Japanese beer – “please try it.” And he met Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy. And, oh, yes, he won a World Series title. Without Koji Uehara’s nearly lights-out performance last season as the Red Sox’s fourth closer, the team’s championship might not have happened...

Major League Notebook: Pelfrey off to good start as Twins rout Red Sox

Red Sox, Marlins play to rain-shortened tie
Boston reserves can't score, but still tie Miami's starters.


JUPITER, Fla. — Nathan Eovaldi was inefficient but effective Thursday. The Marlins’ right-hander managed the rare feat of throwing 36 pitches in the first inning without giving up a run. He escaped a bases-loaded jam, and Miami and the Boston Red Sox were tied 0-0 when the game was called in the eighth inning because of rain...
