Matt Barnes making strong bid for bullpen spot

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Takeaways from the Port, where former No. 1 prospect Matt Barnes continues to make a bid to break camp with the Red Sox as a reliever, after serving exclusively as a starter in three seasons since he was drafted out of the University of Connecticut. On Saturday against the Rays, Barnes entered in relief of knuckleballer Steven Wright with six unearned runs in and two on and two out in the fourth and induced Asdrubal Cabrera to ground into an inning-ending force play. He then worked two more scoreless innings, allowing just a hit and no walks while striking out four.

The Boston Red Sox named right-hander Clay Buchholz as their opening day starter Sunday. However, the announcement by manager John Farrell was accompanied by some troubling injury news regarding relief pitcher Koji Uehara and catcher Christian Vazquez. Buchholz, who was 8-11 with a 5.34 earned-run average last season after going …

Red Sox takeaways from 10-inning win over Rays

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Takeaways from the Fort, where a wild wind at JetBlue Park proved vexing to fielders all day, but Boston Red Sox right fielder Rusney Castillo didn’t have a problem with that -- or anything else -- in a 3-2, 10-inning victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday.

Castillo seems to have a flair for the dramatic. He launched a monster home run in his first at-bat of the Grapefruit League on March 20 against the Baltimore Orioles, and six days later he beat the Minnesota Twins with a walk-off homer.

And then came Sunday.

Red Sox place catcher Vazquez on 60-day disabled list

The Boston Red Sox will seek a second opinion on catcher Christian Vazquez’s throwing elbow after he was placed on the 60-day disabled list Monday. The results of the MRI exam on Vazquez’s elbow on Friday raised sufficient concerns, manager John Farrell said the next day, although he was vague ...

Boston's bats come alive as Red Sox rout Twins

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Takeaways from the Fort, where the Boston Red Sox made Brian Duensing look like a high school freshman, David Ortiz looked as fresh as he has all spring and Justin Masterson was masterful in the Boston Red Sox's 14-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Monday at JetBluePark.

Duensing isn't a bad pitcher: He was converted by the Twins from starter to reliever in 2013 and had a 3.31 ERA last year in 62 games. But the Red Sox -- just hours after manager John Farrell twice said, "I like our team" -- took him deep repeatedly in a six-run fourth inning.

Takeaways: Red Sox pick C Sandy Leon's brain

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Takeaways from the Port, where it didn’t take long for the Boston Red Sox to try and gain a competitive advantage on the Washington Nationals, the National League East powerhouse who will oppose the Red Sox in Boston’s home opener April 13. New catcher Sandy Leon, acquired from the Nationals for cash considerations on Monday, made the trip over from Viera on Monday and paid a visit to his new teammates. Before catching his first game for the Red Sox against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday morning, the Sox coaches already had recruited Leon for a meeting to go over the Nationals’ hitters and pitching staff. “I think I can help," Leon said with a smile...

Victorino to start in RF for Red Sox

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Confirming their worst fears, the Boston Red Sox announced Wednesday night that Christian Vazquez, who was to have begun the season as the team's No. 1 catcher, will undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery on his right elbow Thursday.

Dr. James Andrews, the orthopedist whom Vazquez had sought out Wednesday for a second opinion, will perform the procedure in Pensacola, Florida, the club said.

Vazquez injured the elbow while throwing out New York Yankees minor leaguer Tyler Wade on an attempted steal of second base in the eighth inning of an exhibition game March 13. The team's medical staff administered an MRI on Friday, and when tests showed ligament damage, Vazquez arranged to see Andrews.
