Takeaways: Mike Napoli's bat wide awake

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Takeaways from Hammond Stadium, where the Boston Red Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 8-5, and we should all benefit from more sleep the way Mike Napoli evidently is.

Napoli, who underwent an excruciating surgery in which both his upper and lower jaw were fractured in order to alleviate a sleep apnea condition that had plagued him for the past eight years, said he feels much fresher than he has in a long time. It shows. Napoli hit his fifth home run of the spring Thursday night, a shot over the boardwalk at Hammond Stadium -- and Caloosahatchee River -- raising his spring average to .417.

Red Sox season preview: Solid lineup, but pitching a concern

The Boston Red Sox prepared to leave Florida with some questions that had to be answered if they intend to turn around a last-place finish in the American League East. Last to first to last to … first? One of those questions that had to be answered was not about …

Takeaways: Pablo Sandoval smooth on the basepaths

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Takeaways from the Fort and Friday night’s 5-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins in JetBlue Park.

• Mookie Betts continued his hot spring, leading off the bottom of the first by beating out a roller to Twins shortstop Eduardo Nunez.


• Mike Napoli hit his sixth homer of the spring in the fourth inning. It came on a 3-0 pitch from Brian Duensing.

• Boston’s first run came because of Pablo Sandoval’s baserunning. He led off the inning with a double to right center, sliding into second just ahead of the throw. The 5-foot-11, 255-pound third baseman moved to third when Napoli grounded out to short. Sandoval read the ball off Napoli’s bat and realized shortstop Nunez would be moving to his left, so he scooted to ...

Red Sox's Justin Masterson shows he's ready for regular season

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Takeaways from the Fort, where it was a supreme challenge to figure out who was on first -- or any other position -- in the Boston Red Sox’s 4-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Saturday at Hammond Stadium.

It was a day on which the starters got just two at-bats and players like Forrestt Allday were already in the game in the fourth inning. (Note: He’s an eighth-round pick in 2013 who is described by Soxprospects.com as “backup outfielder potential but likely profiles as an organizational player.”) You almost expected Tom Hanks to run for Forrestt. Or maybe Will Ferrell.

Red Sox set Opening Day roster

PHILADELPHIA -- The Boston Red Sox made it official Sunday, placing pitcher Koji Uehara on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring, retroactive to March 27. Manager John Farrell had laid out Uehara’s itinerary this week prior to the team departing from Florida on Saturday. Uehara is scheduled to throw live batting practice on Tuesday in Fort Myers, pitch in Class-A Greenville in a simulated game on Thursday, then pitch in a game for Greenville on Saturday. That would put Uehara on track to be activated April 13, the day of the home opener against the Washington Nationals.

The Sox, in paring the roster to the Opening Day limit of 25 players, also announced that left-handed Edwin Escobar had been placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to March 29 with an inflamed elbow. Escobar had pitched in an exhibition on March 28 and thrown 12 straight balls in walking three consecutive batters.

That's Clay Buchholz, not Cole Hamels, pitching for Red Sox

PHILADELPHIA -- Contrary to the impression that may have been left by the verbal tonnage devoted to the subject since the end of last season, Cole Hamels will be the starting pitcher for only one team Monday in Citizens Bank Park. That would be the Philadelphia Phillies, whose uniform he has been wearing since 2006, when he made his big league debut.

There will be no midgame trade to the visiting Red Sox, despite the presumption made by many this spring that the left-handed Hamels, because his status as full-blown ace made him a logical choice to fill the void caused by the departure of Jon Lester, would be wearing Boston grays come Monday...

Pedroia, Ramirez power Red Sox by Phillies in opener

PHILADELPHIA — There are those who believe the Boston Red Sox need to find an ace for their rotation. On opening day, Clay Buchholz offered some evidence that they might not have to look as far as everyone thought. Buchholz combined with two relievers on a three-hit shutout and the …

Rick Porcello, Red Sox agree to extension through 2019

PHILADELPHIA -- The Boston Red Sox announced Monday night that they had signed right-handed pitcher Rick Porcello, who was eligible for free agency after the season, to a four-year contract extension. The deal will make him the highest-paid pitcher in club history by average annual value.

It is worth $82.5 million, a major league source said, which breaks down as follows: $500,000 signing bonus, $20 million in 2016 and 2017, $21 million in 2018 and 2019. His 2015 contract remains at $12.5 million. The average annual value of the contract is $20.625 million, and it is the 19th contract given to a pitcher that has an AAV of more than $20 million, according to CotsContracts.com. Clayton Kershaw and Max Scherzer each have an AAV of more than $30 million.
