News
Kelly had a one-pitch appearance Tuesday, retiring Detroit's Ian Kinsler on a slider in Boston's 9-8 loss, Julian Benbow of the Boston Globe reports.

Kelly is adjusting to life out of the bullpen and part of that adjustment is using all of the pitches available to him. When he was called up to Boston over the weekend, he told reporters his mindset is trying to strike everyone out as a reliever. On Monday, he relied heavily on the fastball, hitting 100 mph multiple times, but velocity didn't stop Detroit's Justin Upton from tripling and eventually scoring the winning run. "The same thing applies in this role as it did while he was starting," Boston manager John Farrell said. "His need to use the secondary pitches exists. That's going to always be a part of Joe's plan for success - that he can't rely just on velocity because as we've seen, the swing-and-miss rate is low despite upper-90s to 100 miles an hour." Going forward, Kelly said he'll need to rely on his slider more often in order to keep hitters off balance.

News
Ziegler (2-5) gave up two unearned runs in the ninth inning Thursday against the Angels, suffering a blown save and a loss.

After six straight scoreless outings to open his time in Boston, Ziegler's come crashing down with consecutive losses, although it's hard to blame him for Hanley Ramirez's game-ending throwing error. His time as the closer is coming to an end soon regardless of his performance, though, as Craig Kimbrel's return from the DL is getting close.

News
Porcello allowed only two runs in tossing a complete game Friday night against the Angels to move to 14-2 on the year.

After allowing two runs early on, Porcello settled in and cruised the rest of the way as he retired 21 of the final 23 batters. He continued his strong season, in the process lowering his ERA to 3.47 and his WHIP to 1.11. Porcello is scheduled to next take the hill Wednesday in Seattle.

News
Rodriguez has been using his slider more often and getting good results with the pitch, Mark C. Volain of MassLive.com reports. "It's become a much more defined pitch so it's a much more usable pitch. He's been able to mix it in with the two other pitches that he has," manager John Farrell said. "I can't say there's a prescribed number to go out there and throw, but it's a good pitch and he's using it."

Since his return from the minors, Rodriguez has thrown his slider a bit more than 30 percent of the time, according to BrooksBaseball.net. Rodriguez threw the slider 32 times during Wednesday's loss, matching the number he threw in his previous start, but saw an uptick in strikes with the pitch, with 21 called strikes Wednesday compared to 19 last Friday. There are still issues he needs to overcome -- we'd like to see Rodriguez get deeper into games with more consistency -- but there are hopeful signs of improvement.

News
Bogaerts had a big night on Friday, going 2-for-5 with three RBI and his 13th homer.

Bogaerts continues to thrive in the middle of the powerful Red Sox lineup as he lifted his average to .331 on the year. The 13th homer established a career high in taters for Bogaerts with a full two months still remaining in the season. The knock on Bogaerts after 2015 was his power after hitting only seven homers, but he has put that knock to rest a bit as he is on pace for 20 bombs in 2016.

Young (hamstring) has been running without pain and the Red Sox are targeting the next homestand for him to begin a rehabilitation assignment, Jasaon Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

Young, who is currently traveling with the Red Sox on the current 11-game road trip, will get back to Boston on Aug. 8. Until Young is activated off the disabled list, Brock Holt will be the primary left fielder for Boston.

News
Leon will start behind the plate Tuesday against the Tigers after Ryan Hanigan was scratched due to illness, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

Leon will bat eighth while catching knuckleballer Steven Wright during Tuesday's contest. Wright has normally been caught by Hanigan throughout the season, but Leon will slide back into the lineup after going 2-for-4 with an RBI on Monday.

News
Wright allowed eight runs on nine hits and three walks over 4.2 innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Tigers.

Miguel Cabrera touched up Wright for a first inning home run, but after that, he was singled to death, as the home run was the only extra-base hit Wright allowed. Still, the knuckleball just wasn't fooling anyone -- he induced just five swinging strikes over 84 pitches. This marks his worst start of the season -- he allowed eight runs June 25th against Texas, but only three were earned, and he had yet to allow more than five earned runs in a start all year long prior to Tuesday.

News
Price shut the Angels out over eight innings Thursday, allowing seven hits and a walk while striking out six, but he received no decision.

Brad Ziegler came on and blew the save with some help from a Hanley Ramirez error in the ninth inning, blowing Price's win. That's a tough break for the lefty, who's in the midst of his worst campaign since breaking out in 2010. The strikeouts have been there, but Price owns career-worst line-drive and hard-hit rates, suggesting his elevated .338 BABIP isn't entirely bad luck. Still, he's a good bet to push his ERA down under the 4.00 mark before all's said and done.

Ramirez is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers, according to Ryan Hannable of WEEI.

Ramirez went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's game, so manager John Farrell decided it was time to give Ramirez his first day off since the All-Star break. Travis Shaw will slide across the diamond and serve as the Red Sox's first baseman in Ramirez's place.

While returning from Tommy John surgery, Workman strained his oblique, and is now on his way back from that injury. It was unlikely that Workman would make his way to the majors before the setback, so after, it seems even less likely.

Knee - Expected to be out until at least Aug 1 (Updated - 7/29/16)
News
Kimbrel (knee) will make a rehab appearance with Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

This was expected, but Kimbrel will indeed join Pawtucket with his knee responding well to Wednesday's bullpen session, his second of the week. It could end up being a very brief stop with the affiliate, as the Red Sox may activate Kimbrel after the one appearance, barring any setbacks with the knee. He should return to the closer role immediately upon activation, pushing Brad Ziegler to a setup role.

Clay Buchholz, #11
Year-to-date Stats

3985.25.99056
 
News
Buchholz's last two appearances have impressed manager John Farrell, who said the right-hander will used situationally rather than exclusively in a mop-up role, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports. "The way he's thrown the ball of late, yeah," Farrell said. "He's going to throw strikes, he's got a full complement of pitches he uses, even in shorter stints, he's done a good job of that. If the situation arises, depending who is available, he will be called upon... I think he's thrown the ball very good."

Buchholz has pitched better in his last two outings, allowing one run on two hits in three innings, but he's not that far removed from some poor outings. At one point he went 19 days between appearances, so it's hard to see Farrell consistently using him in high-leverage situations. There's a chance that the right-hander becomes a classic "change of scenery" guy as another team could find some interest in the former starter.

News
Ortiz will likely sit out one game this weekend, Scott Lauber of ESPN.com reports.

The Angels are trotting out back-to-back lefties Saturday and Sunday (Hector Santiago and Tyler Skaggs, respectively), and it sounds like manager John Farrell will take the opportunity to get the 40-year-old Ortiz a breather. Ortiz just had day off last weekend, but of course he didn't really have much of an All-Star break and the Red Sox want to be sure he's at full strength for the stretch run.

News
Swihart (ankle) has been increasing activity, but is still at least a week away from starting a rehabilitation assignment, Julian Benbow of the Boston Globe reports. "When he first increased the intensity, there was some residual discomfort in just getting past some of the increased change in direction, straight-ahead speed," said Red Sox manager John Farrell. "So while he's making progress, he's not ready to go out on a rehab assignment."

Swihart's on the 60-day disabled list and is eligible to be activated Aug. 4. If he can begin a rehab assignment next week, we're looking at a return by the second week of August. When he does return, the Red Sox plan to keep deploying him in left field.

News
Ross was the pitcher of record in Tuesday night's 9-8 loss to the Tigers. He allowed one run on two hits and two walks while striking out one in a two-inning, 40-pitch relief outing.

Ross initially performed well when called on in the fifth inning to replace struggling starter Steven Wright, but began to weaken as his pitch count rose, and Boston manager John Farrell tried to squeeze out one more batter. After retiring the first two batters in the seventh, Ross loaded the bases on a hit batsman, a single and a walk, and then walked in the winning run.
