Boston Red Sox swept by Baltimore Orioles for second-ever 0-3 start at Fenway Park

The early returns certainly look good for the Baltimore Orioles. For the Boston Red Sox, it looks a lot like last season.

Boston fell to their second-ever 0-3 start at Fenway Park and their first since 1948 as Trey Mancini and Austin Hays hit two-run doubles during a seven-run third inning that carried the Orioles to an 11-3 win Sunday.

Cedric Mullins went 5-for-5 with three doubles and a walk for the Orioles, collecting four hits in the first four innings. Maikel Franco added a first-inning, two-run double, helping Baltimore to its first three-game sweep at Fenway since Aug. 25-27, 2017.

“I think the synergy we have is really strong,” Mullins said. “Guys have been playing with each other for a few years now.”

Minority owner of YES Network set to buy a share of Boston Red Sox

Sportico reports “RedBird Capital is nearing a deal to acquire more than 10% of Fenway Sports Group for approximately $750 million, according to individuals familiar with the matter.”

The deal values the owner of the Boston Red Sox and Liverpool FC at more than $7 billion, according the people, who were granted anonymity because the matter is private. ... RedBird founder Gerry Cardinale for some time has been trying to acquire a piece of Fenway, which is controlled by John Henry. Cardinale and Red Sox executive Sam Kennedy declined to comment. ... The deal will likely close in the next six weeks.

In an interesting twist, Sportico reports “RedBird also owns a stake of the Yankees Entertainment and Sports Network, the regional broadcaster of the Red Sox rival New York Yankees.”

RedBird is a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC). CNBC describes a SPAC as “essentially a shell company set up by investors with the sole purpose of raising money through an IPO to eventually acquire another company. ... A SPAC has no commercial operations — it makes no products and does not sell anything.

Boston Red Sox will discuss contract extensions during spring training; Rafael Devers, Eduardo Rodriguez among top candidates for long-term deals

The Red Sox are likely to discuss long-term contract extensions with some of their young players during spring training, chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom said Sunday. The club has already discussed some possibilities internally and plans to hold talks with players before Opening Day.

“I expect, as we get into that spring, that those conversations will pick up,” Bloom said. “Don’t know what it will lead to, obviously. If and when they do pick up, it’s not something we’re going to speak publicly about unless there’s something to report. This is a time when a lot of those things often happen so I would expect we’d at least have some conversations about it with some guys.”

Boston has plenty of extension candidates on its roster. Two key pitchers—Eduardo Rodriguez and Matt Barnes—are free agents after the season and both have previously expressed interest in signing new deals and the Red Sox have expressed their desire to lock up third baseman Rafael Devers, who is under contract through 2023. Shortstop Xander Bogaerts, who signed a six-year extension two years ago, can opt out after 2022, so Boston might want to lock him in by offering a new deal worth more than the $60 million he’s due to earn from 2023 to 2025.

Outfielder Alex Verdugo (controlled through 2024) and lefty Darwinzon Hernandez (controlled through 2025) haven’t reached arbitration yet, but the Red Sox are high on both players and could look to commit to them.

Red Sox Reportedly Finalizing Deal With Japanese Pitcher Hirokazu Sawamura

The Red Sox reportedly have made a move to bolster their bullpen.

Boston on Monday was in the process of finalizing a two-year, $3 million contract with Japanese relief pitcher Hirokazu Sawamura, according to multiple reports. The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal was first to report details of Sawamura’s contract, which includes a “complex” option for a third year.

The deal reportedly could see Sawamura earn as much as $7.65 million.

Sources: Boston Red Sox, Marwin Gonzalez agree on 1-year, $3M deal

Free-agent infielder Marwin Gonzalez has agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal with the Boston Red Sox, sources confirmed to ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Thursday.

Gonzalez, 31, spent the past two seasons with the Minnesota Twins. He hit .211 with five home runs and 22 RBIs last year in a pandemic-shortened schedule.

Before his stint in Minnesota, he played seven seasons with the Houston Astros. His best season was in 2017, when he hit .303/.377/.530 with 23 homers and 90 RBIs and helped the team win the World Series.

Sources: Boston Red Sox sending Andrew Benintendi to Kansas City Royals in 3-team deal

The Boston Red Sox, Kansas City Royals and New York Mets have agreed to a three-way trade that will send outfielder Andrew Benintendi from Fenway to K.C., sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Wednesday night.

Royals outfield prospect Khalil Lee will go to the Mets, while Royals outfielder Franchy Cordero will go to the Red Sox, with other players involved as well, sources told ESPN.

Benintendi, once a part of the Red Sox’s vaunted outfield core, missed most of the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, landing on the injured list Aug. 12 because of a strained right rib cage, with Boston later ruling him out for the year.

Dustin Pedroia announces retirement

Second baseman Dustin Pedroia, who played in 1,512 games with the Boston Red Sox from 2006-19, announced his retirement from Major League Baseball today.

Pedroia, 37, spent his entire 17-year professional career in the Red Sox organization after being selected by the club in the second round of the 2004 June Draft. A three-time World Series champion (2007, ’13, ’18), he was named American League Rookie of the Year in 2007 and Most Valuable Player in 2008. He earned four All-Star Game selections (2008-10, ’13), four Gold Glove Awards at second base (2008, ’11, ’13-14), and a 2008 Silver Slugger Award, and is the only second baseman ever named Red Sox MVP by the Boston Baseball Writers (2008, ’12). In 2012, Pedroia was named the starting second baseman on the All-Fenway Team.

“Dustin is so much more than his American League Most Valuable Player award, his All-Star Game selections, and the Gold Gloves he amassed throughout his impressive 17-year career in our organization,” said Principal Owner John Henry.

Red Sox and partners unveil details of plans for development around Fenway Park

The streets around Fenway Park could be transformed over the next few years under development plans filed Friday by the owners of Red Sox and its partners.

Fenway Sports Group, the D’Angelo Family, and WS Development shared their clearest vision yet of plans to redevelop eight acres around the historic ballpark. A letter to the Boston Planning & Development Agency outlined a project that calls for 2.1 million square feet of offices, housing, and retail in four in buildings along Jersey and Landsdowne streets. Jersey Street would be permanently closed to vehicular traffic and become a “year-round public gathering space.”

Specifics — such as building heights and the precise mix of uses — will be fleshed out as the project moves closer to BPDA review. Yanni Tsipis, who is leading the project for WS, said the developers hope to work closely with neighborhood groups to shape a project that makes sense for everyone.

“This is the first small step on a journey to transform the public experience around the ballpark,” Tsipis said. “We look forward to working with our Fenway neighbors to create something beautiful that embraces its historic context and is welcoming to all.”

Yankees trade Ottavino to Red Sox

In a deal between rivals, the Yankees traded Adam Ottavino to the Red Sox, a source told MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand on Monday. New York’s return in the deal was not immediately known. The clubs have not confirmed the deal, which was first reported by The Athletic’s Lindsey Adler.

Ottavino, a 10-year MLB veteran, has a 3.53 career ERA but scuffled last season, posting a 5.89 mark in 18 1/3 innings with New York.

Garrett Richards, Boston Red Sox reach 1-year, $10 million deal, sources say


Starting pitcher Garrett Richards and the Boston Red Sox have agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Saturday.

The deal is pending a physical.

Richards’ biggest success during the pandemic-shortened season was staying healthy. The veteran right-hander made 10 starts for the San Diego Padres in 2020, going 2-2 with a 4.03 ERA, 46 strikeouts and 17 walks. He was moved to the bullpen late in the season and during the playoffs.

Sources: Boston Red Sox, Enrique Hernandez agree to 2-year, $14 million deal

The Boston Red Sox have agreed to a two-year, $14 million deal with Enrique Hernandez, sources confirmed to ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Friday.

Hernandez, originally acquired from the Miami Marlins as part of a seven-player trade in December 2014, was a key cog for the Los Angeles Dodgers over the past six years because of his infectious energy, defensive versatility and production against left-handed pitching.

Hernandez, 29, is a career .240/.313/.425 hitter, making him slightly below league average, but he can provide premium defense as a middle infielder and in the outfield. From 2016 to 2020, Hernandez compiled 5.7 FanGraphs wins above replacement.

Boston Red Sox sign Matt Andriese to $2.1 million, 1-year deal

The Red Sox have signed right-hander Matt Andriese to a $2.1 million, one-year deal to bolster the back end of their starting rotation, chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom said Wednesday.

Andriese will earn a $1.85 million salary for 2021 and has a $3.5 million club option for 2022 with a $250,000 buyout. Andriese could earn up to $7.6 million over two seasons.

The 31-year-old Andriese made one start and 15 relief appearances for the Los Angeles Angels in 2020, posting a 4.50 ERA. Andriese has been a starter and reliever throughout his career, including during four seasons with AL East-rival Tampa Bay.

Former pitcher, Rogelio Moret, member of the Boston Red Sox family, has died

Former Puerto Rican pitcher of the Boston Red Sox, Rogelio More t died of cancer in Puerto Rico at the age of 71.

Moret is remembered for his good work as a pitcher with the Boston team in the early 1970s. The left-handed pitcher compiled a 41-win-18-loss record with the red-legged. He led the American League in winning percentage in 1975 when he had a record of 14 and 3.

In December 1975, he was traded to the Atlanta Braves for Tom House. He came to the Texas Rangers through a trade, pitched for them for two seasons.

Moret has been battling the demon of mental illness throughout his life.

What happened to Andrew Benintendi? And can he rebound from it?

It’s not that long ago the 2015 Red Sox first-rounder seemed like a certain bet for stardom. Baseball America ranked him the No. 1 prospect in the game entering 2017, with scouts falling out of their chairs over his skill set.

At that time, one American League evaluator envisioned him as a center fielder who would win multiple batting titles, an eight- to 10-time All-Star whom he ranked alongside Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, and Mookie Betts as one of the best minor leaguers he’d seen.

“He’s a once-in-a-decade hitter,” said the scout.

A National League evaluator gave Benintendi an “80” grade as a hitter on the 20-80 scouting scale, and suggested he would regularly deliver 70-80 extra-base hits a year. Such projections didn’t seem out of place for a player who’d won every college award imaginable as a sophomore at Arkansas and was not fazed by blitzing to the big leagues in just over a year.

So what does the 2020 season mean? What does it say that, in a year when he was limited to just 14 games before a season-ending rib injury, Benintendi hit .103 (second-worst among the 414 players who had at least 50 plate appearances), slugged .128 (easily the worst in the majors), struck out in 32.7 percent of plate appearances (the 89th percentile), and when he did put the ball in play, did little except for pulling ground balls?

Kris Bryant deal was discussed this past summer, Boston still could have interest in 2016 NL MVP

The Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs discussed slugger Kris Bryant this past summer, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The Tribune listed the Red Sox as one of the potential teams who could have interest in acquiring the slugger this offseason…..

Per the Chicago Tribune: “Two sources confirmed the Red Sox and Cubs discussed Bryant this summer, but those talks faded. Rafael Devers is the incumbent at third base, which means the Red Sox would envision Bryant as a left fielder. ...Mike Bryant, Kris’ father, is a Massachusetts native, but his son will dictate where he plays when becoming a free agent after 2021.”

Bryant has made 172 career appearances (117 starts) in the outfield. Sixty-six of those starts came in left field.

Red Sox have reportedly interviewed Will Venable for manager opening

While we’ve known since before the season even ended that the Red Sox would start this offseason looking for a new manager, we haven’t really heard much on that front to this point. That’s not terribly surprising since they tend to keep these searches close to the vest as it is, and it’s even easier to do that when any initial interviews are almost certainly taking place remotely on Zoom (or whatever video platform). That said, when there’s the whole Alex Cora elephant in the room, the silence on the search front can speak volumes, fairly or not.

The silence did change slightly on Thursday, though, as we got (to my knowledge anyway) the first report of an actual interview from Jon Heyman. He reported that the team interviewed Will Venable, currently the third base coach for the Cubs. Additionally, Heyman lists Dodgers first base coach George Lombard and Pirates bench coach Don Kelly as possibilities before deeming Cora as being viewed as the favorite.

Venable isn’t all that far removed from his playing days, having retired following the 2016 season after a solid nine-year career spent mostly in San Diego. After retirement he quickly joined the Cubs organization. Originally he served as a special assistant to Theo Epstein, but in 2018 and 2019 he served as the team’s first base coach before moving to third base this past summer. While he’s still relatively young in the coaching world, this is not the first traction he’s gotten on the managerial front, having also interviewed for the Cubs after Joe Maddon left as well as for the Astros last winter.

Ranking five best MLB general manager/manager openings

1. White Sox manager
This is a roster, even more so than that of the Mets, that is ready to win, since Chicago just went to the playoffs for the first time since 2008. There are oodles of young and prime-age talent, highlighted by Tim Anderson, Lucas Giolito, Eloy Jimenez, Yoan Moncada and Luis Robert. Plus, the financial splash last offseason to retain Jose Abreu and sign Yasmani Grandal and Dallas Keuchel signaled that owner Jerry Reinsdorf hungers for another title.

But early indicators are he also yearns for Tony La Russa, who managed the White Sox from 1979-86. Reinsdorf has said letting La Russa go is one of his most regrettable decisions. Will he feel the same way about bringing back someone who, yes, is a Hall of Famer, but also is 76 and hasn’t managed in a decade? If not La Russa, keep an eye on A.J. Hinch, whose suspension for ties to the Astros cheating scandal is up after this season.

Deal revived, Rockies acquire 2B Marco Scutaro from Red Sox

Il Milione Man March heads west…

The Rockies have agreed in principle on a deal to acquire Boston infielder Marco Scutaro for pitcher Clayton Mortensen, according to a source with direct knowledge of the talks.

The Rockies’ earmarked Scutaro as a target when the offseason began, seeing him as a starting second baseman and potential No. 2 hitter in the lineup. The deal went on life support Friday, but was revived today when the Rockies were able to work through some financial issues to take on Scutaro’s $6 million contract.

It will become official shortly as the players involved are notified.

...Mortensen is an extreme groundball pitcher, relying heavily on a sinker. He went 2-4 with a 3.86 ERA, splitting between between the bullpen and rotation.

With Scutaro in the fold, the Rockies will enter spring training with one of their deepest lineups in franchise history. He will join outfielder Michael Cuddyer and catcher Ramon Hernandez as key acquisitions, completely reshaping the lineup around Carlos Gonzalez and all-star cleanup hitter Troy Tulowitzki.

Shaughnessy’s Faux Rage: I’m Not Buying It

Firebrand Joe Morgan-like.

If you heard a loud thumping noise a few minutes ago, that wasn’t your imagination.  It was me bashing my head against the desk as I was reading Dan Shaughnessy’s latest opus.  Like all Shaughnessy articles, he channels his most emotional nerves to convince us that the Red Sox ownership (or whomever his target du jour might be) is wronging us. That their “cheap” ways are depriving us of a championship that we’re entitled to experiencing.  Clearly, he does it for attention and notoriety, and perhaps we should all be immune to his shtick by now.  For some reason, I can’t let go.

...Terry Francona, Theo Epstein, Jonathan Papelbon, and Heidi Watney are all gone, and we just learned that Carl Crawford had surgery on his wrist, which isn’t going to make things easier for his big bounce-back season.

I can live with all of the above – even if we won’t have J.D. Drew to kick around anymore – but I can’t stand talk about payroll limits and luxury tax obligations.

While Heidi Watney’s presence will be missed, I’m not sure how this will impact the team’s on field performance.  If anything, I think the horny old baseball writers, like Shaughnessy, will be the ones missing her most of all.

Crawford’s wrist injury probably won’t make his bounce back season any easier, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be successful.  The good news is that only the cartilege was torn in the wrist.  Had he broken a bone, the outlook on his season would’ve been much less rosy.  Recovery from such a procedure typically lasts 6-8 weeks, which would put him about 2-4 weeks behind in terms of Spring Training readiness.  He seems to be a pretty quick healer, so he could be back even sooner.  I don’t see any reason to panic until we’re given an actually reason to do so.

Boston Globe: Abraham: Red Sox reorganize medical department for 2012

Thus narrowly avoiding the scheduled sessions in the Tub O’ Leeches for players wishing to treat an inflamed saltalamacchia by purging of harmful humors…

“There were areas of our players’ physical maintenance and care that we thought could improve from 2011,’’ general manager Ben Cherington said yesterday.

Some of the changes were made quickly, including the removal of Dr. Thomas Gill as medical director. Cherington also looked deeper in an effort to create what he termed “the best possible environment’’ for players.

The Red Sox created two new positions, hiring Mike Boyle as their strength and conditioning consultant and Dan Dyrek as a clinical consultant.

[...]

[Boyle] will be with the team at spring training and at home games while providing “mentorship’’ to new strength coach Pat Sandora and members of the minor league conditioning staff.

Rick Jameyson, who was with the Indians for 20 seasons, was hired as the head athletic trainer. Brad Pearson was promoted from the minor league staff to be his assistant.

Orlando Cabrera To Retire From Baseball

OH NO, EXPO!

Last season, Orlando Cabrera batted .238 with the Indians and Giants, posting a 61 OPS+. The season before that, he posted a 76 OPS+. The season before that, he posted an 85 OPS+. Orlando Cabrera has been declining, and just turned 37 years old. As a free agent, Cabrera didn’t drum up much interest, which I’m guessing is why he’s intending to hang ‘em up. Enrique Rojas:

  “Orlando Cabrera to retire from baseball, he said in Colombia radio station. Thanks for memories!”

Cabrera had a long career that’ll be difficult to forget. He debuted with the Expos in 1997, and remained there until the giant Nomar Garciaparra three-way trade in 2004. That year, with the Red Sox, Cabrera won a World Series. He wound up with the Angels, earning the unfortunate nickname “The Wizard of O.C.”, and then he wound up with the White Sox, and the A’s, and the Twins, and the Reds, and the Indians, and the Giants ... He remained a shortstop to the end, and collected 2,055 hits. He will always be remembered as a pest. An absolute pest.

Boston Red Sox legend Jim Rice, a member of The Baseball Hall of Fame, has just completed a new TV commercial which will promote the new single “At Fenway,” now on sale at Best Buy and Amazon.com.

The song, written and recorded by crooner Brian Evans, was produced by multiple Grammy Award winning producer Narada Michael Walden…

After debuting at #3 on Amazon.com, astonishing given the single was released in November, during football season, the commercial was filmed last Monday at The Groveland Diner in Groveland, Massachusetts.

...“Red Sox Nation is everywhere. This has truly been a D2F (Direct to Fan) campaign at this point, and we’re blown away at the response to the song,” says Evans.
