Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia continued his hot-streak at the plate despite his team's 12-5 loss to the Angels on Friday.

Pedroia went 3 for 5 with an RBI in the loss. His last six games have been stellar, hitting .296/.321/.407 with eight hits and three doubles in 28 at-bats.

Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly allowed two runs on seven hits in seven innings of work in Boston's 2-1 loss to the Rangers on Wednesday.

"I made some pitches when I had to and had command of my heater," Kelly said after the game, per the Boston Herald. "We played some good defense tonight, but it’s baseball and we lost, 2-1. That guy over there pitched a good game and sometimes you just have to tip your hat."

Kelly allowed two consecutive singles in the second, putting runners on first and third. Elvis Andrus produced a sacrifice fly to score the first run. Then in the third, Robinson Chirinos blasted a solo home run to center field. 

"Fastball command pretty much nails it down," Kelly said of the key to his success. "Getting ahead of hitters and locating the pitch where I want to locate it. I didn’t really have any off-speed tonight. I went out there with just one pitch and I tried to locate it as best I can to get out of it."

Kelly, who also struck out seven and walked just one, moved his ERA to 5.13 in 47 1/3 innings of work. Kelly, now 1-3, will look to get back on track Monday against the Twins.

Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello allowed seven earned runs during Friday night's 12-5 loss to the Angels. 

Porcello was only able to go 4 1/3 innings, with his appearance in the fifth inning a particular disaster for him. Five of the nine runs that inning were credited to Porcello. Porcello struck out four batters while walking three. 

Porcello has now struck out 10 batters over the past two games. He now has an ERA of 5.07 this season. 

His next start is projected for May 27 against the Twins.

Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo is expected to return to Triple-A Pawtucket for Thursday's game in Louisville, manager John Farrell said. While Farrell said that a promotion to the majors isn't "imminent," he did indicate that a "conversation has started" based on his recent surge at the plate, per the Providence Journal.

"You can make a guy fit if a guy is forcing his way on the team with the way he's performing. And Rusney has swung the bat of late very well," Farrell said.

Castillo, who worked past early-season injury issues, is hitting .304 with two home runs, nine RBI and six stolen bases at Pawtucket. He has 16 hits in his last 46 at-bats, including two home runs and three doubles.

News
Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts had the goods and bads in Thursday's loss to the Rangers. Bogaerts reached base safely in all three plate appearances, going 2 for 2 with a walk. He has a hit four straight games and has reached base in eight of his last nine. Since May 10, he has seen his season average rise more than 20 points from .250 to its current .271 clip.

But, Bogaerts did commit his third error of the season, and also ran into some back luck on the basepaths, literally. 

With teammate Daniel Nava at the plate in the bottom of the fifth, Bogaerts was on first base with one out. He took off trying to steal second, but Nava swung and tapped the ball to the right side, which clipped Bogaerts on the foot as he was running. Bogaerts was ruled out, and a strikeout by the next batter ended the rally for Boston.

"Probably the play there when I tried to steal and the ball hit me, that was probably the game-changer," said Bogaerts, per MLB.com. "I never knew, I was never aware the ball touched me until I came back down and I saw the video, it might've just scratched the bottom of my heel or something like that, but I never know it hit me at all."

News
Red Sox catcher Ryan Hanigan has been sidelined since early May with a fractured knuckle and has been serving as an informal catching coach for rookie Blake Swihart and journeyman Sandy Leon, per the Boston Herald.

"There have been conversations with Sandy and Blake prior to a series (especially) if it's a team we've played already this year," Farrell said of Hanigan's mentoring. "He gives his insights and feedback from what he experienced from behind the plate.

"There are conversations between some innings in the dugout with what he is seeing. It is just an open dialogue and both guys have a tremendous amount of trust and respect for him and he adds what he can."

Hanigan was awarded the catching job at the start of the season when Christian Vazquez was lost for the season due to Tommy John surgery. He remains hopeful he'll compete for his old starting job once he's back from the disabled list at some point before the All-Star break.

"I had a good evaluation and it's really going along," Hanigan said. "The doctor's happy and I can start moving around and run and do things to keep my body in shape."

Knee - Questionable for May 24 vs. L.A. Angels (Updated - 5/24/15)
News
Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval will not be making his return to the lineup on Saturday against the Angels. 

Sandoval, who was used as a pinch-hitter on May 21, took a pitch to the knee on May 19 against the Rangers. 

Sandoval is hitting .268/.340/.413 with five home runs and 16 RBI in 138 at-bats this season.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said that Sandoval will be available for the game, despite not starting, according to the Providence Journal.

News
Despite the fact that Red Sox rookie pitcher Matt Barnes was drafted as a starter, he has made 11 relief appearances in his brief Major League career, which started in 2014. Barnes has yet to start a big league game, and he may wind up being a reliever long-term for the Red Sox. But Barnes would be just fine with that.

“Right now, I’m not sure about (starting) because I’ve been doing one thing and I’m satisfied with what I’m doing right now,” said Barnes, per the Boston Herald. “I’m available to do anything and I’ll do anything the team needs me to do.”

Barnes, who was drafted 19th overall in 2011, is 2-0 and has allowed just one earned run in six appearances this year. And though he is currently blocked by Koji Uehara as a potential closer, manager John Farrell hasn't shied away from using Barnes as a late-inning option out of the bullpen.

“We brought him into high-leverage situations and there’s a reason we brought him into those situations," Farrell said. "Late in the game, you are looking at guy who can ideally control the running game and he’s got the ability to get a strikeout.”

Red Sox manager John Farrell says Rusney Castillo will be used in a rotation between right field and center field. Castillo, who was promoted from Triple-A on Friday, will share playing time with both Shane Victorino and Mookie Betts, according to the Boston Globe

Victorino, who is not in Friday's lineup against the Angels, is considered day-to-day with soreness in his left calf. He was a late scratch from Thursday's lineup and has not gotten much playing time since returning from the disabled list on May 11. Though, he has hit well in the seven games since his return, with eight hits in just 19 at-bats, including a double and a home run.

Betts, meanwhile, has been struggling mightely at the plate in his sophomore season. He's batting .205 (8 for 39) with just one extra-base hit over his last 10 games.

Red Sox catcher Blake Swihart will get a rest on Thursday against the Rangers, as he is being held out of the starting lineup. The rookie catcher has started each of the last four games, but he's starting to turn things around at the plate.

Swihart's been struggling offensively since his call-up on May 2, hitting just .170 on the year. But he has a hit in three of his last four games, so perhaps he is starting to adjust to Major League pitching.

Sandy Leon will spell Swihart behind the plate and bat ninth on Thursday.

Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright allowed two runs on four hits in  6 1/3 innings of work in Boston's 8-3 win over the Angels on Saturday.

Wright's only blemish came in the first inning when he allowed three of the first four hitters to reach safely, including back-to-back doubles by Albert Pujols and Kole Calhoun, leading to two runs. Wright settled down and got out of the inning without anymore damage.

"For me, it's just another day," Wright said to WEEI.com. "If you try and put too much pressure on yourself you’re just going to disappoint and you're going to try and over do things, over work. For me, I am going to try and go in there and throw quality knuckleballs in the strike zone. They are going to put it in play, it's a contact pitch. Today we were fortunate to get balls right at some guys, guys made some good plays. I went as deep as I could."

Wright, now 2-1, lowered his ERA to 3.68 in 22 innings of work. He will look to keep things rolling Thursday against the Rangers.

Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli went 2 for 4 at the plate in Boston's 8-3 win over the Angels on Saturday.

Napoli ripped a solo home run over the Green Monster in the second inning off of C.J. Wilson. Then in the sixth, Napoli did the same thing when he belted a two-run shot off of Wilson, his seventh of the season.

"I feel pretty good," said Napoli to MLB.com. "This is a time where I have to maintain what I'm doing right now in the cage and in my BP. I know where my hands have to get. You know, it's a good feeling to go in there and be able to compete and not try to think about what's going wrong with my swing or anything. I'll try to keep that muscle memory and be able to go in the game with it."

Napoli is hitting .389 with four homers and six RBI during the team's five game homestand.

"The way I was hitting, it wasn't helping us," Napoli said. "We've got a lot of good hitters in this lineup. We're definitely better than what we've been doing out there. Just got to keep going, keep grinding. Everyone in this clubhouse is going to do that. We know we can be a great offense, but we've got to be able to go out there and do it."

Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Rangers. Victorino was initially penciled in to play right field and bat sixth, but he has been replaced by Daniel Nava, who is batting eighth.

Manager John Farrell said Victorino was scratched with "general soreness localized to left calf". He is hopeful Victorino will be able to return in a day or two, according to the Boston Herald.

“You know you’re going to have to run him out there a few days, back off even on days where he feels like he’s capable, almost to protect him from himself," Farrell said. "This is a little bit of an unforeseen one, but ideally you walk in the clubhouse every day knowing that there’s 25 guys at your disposal and that’s not always the case.”

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz was stuck with a loss on Thursday, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks in 7 1/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 3-1 defeat against the Rangers.

Buchholz (2-5) delivered his third straight quality start but continues to be plagued by little run support, as the Red Sox have scored just one run in five of his nine outings. He gave up two runs in the first inning, with one coming on an error, and then surrendered a solo home run in the fourth.

"I've been trying to mix my pitches each time out and each time through the order," Buchholz said after the game, per MLB.com. "It's a little bit easier whenever you have your pitches working. It's the times you go through when you've got one or two pitches working and you have to filter out the other pitches."

Buchholz owns a 4.58 ERA and 58:15 K:BB ratio in 53 innings. He's slated to face the Twins in Minnesota on Tuesday.
