The son of longtime Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy pleaded not guilty Friday to fatally stabbing his girlfriend a day after he was released from custody for allegedly assaulting her.
Jared Remy was arraigned in Waltham District Court on charges of murder and domestic assault and battery in the Thursday night killing of Jennifer Martel, 27.
Jared Remy formerly worked for the Red Sox as a security staffer. In 2009, The Boston Globe reported that he had been fired along with another staff member following a Major League investigation of possible steroid use in the team’s clubhouse. No players were implicated in that investigation, although the league would not reveal information on who may have been questioned.

How to protect a young arm, from two different perspectives:
Ball, whom the Red Sox picked No. 7 overall out of New Castle (Ind.) High School, has yet to pitch in a game this season. He had his first live bullpen session Tuesday. He threw 24 pitches and described the experience as “awesome” after spending the previous month riding buses across Southwest Florida, spending time in the weight room and doing everything with his teammates except pitch.
Stewart, whom the Twins chose No. 4 overall out of St. Pius X High School in Houston, has started three Gulf Coast League games and relieved in two others. He pitched three or fewer innings in each of those five appearances.
“Each guy is different,” Minnesota Twins director of minor leagues Brad Steil said. “Everybody has different circumstances. There are a lot of different factors that go into it. We talk to our scouts. We talk to Kohl, to see what kind of shape he’s in. We talk about it and come up with a plan, our pitching coordinator and our field coordinator and myself. There’s all kinds of information out there as to what has been done with innings increases and year-to-year. There’s all sorts of research about arm injuries. There’s no right or wrong answers. A lot of it is subjective. We just take all of the information into account and make the best decision that we can.
“There’s no magic formula that says if you do X,Y, and Z, that your player is going to develop, and he’s not going to get hurt.”

The team will put dozens of barriers in front of Gates “B” and “C” to prevent any unauthorized vehicles from being driven into the park. The extra security was a recommendation from the Department Of Homeland Security.
