Why the Red Sox should trade for Yonder Alonso

Everybody wants pitching, but adding a great hitter could help too. Boston could improve at first base while keeping Alonso away from the Yankees as well.

Trade Deadline Daily: Boston's bullpen issue

The Red Sox are still exploring the relief market, but might not necessarily move on to names like Addison Reed or AJ Ramos with Pat Neshek off the board.

Sale continues mowing down hitters

Chris Sale has 14 10-strikeout games in 21 starts this season. If he keeps up his pace of two 10-K games for every three starts, he'll set a Red Sox record and become the fourth pitcher with 20 10-K games in a single season, joining Randy Johnson, Nolan Ryan and Sandy Koufax. (ESPN Stats & Info)

Sox's summer certainty: Sale remains hot

With 11 strikeouts in Wednesday's 4-0 win at Seattle, Chris Sale has fanned 56 batters in 34 2/3 innings during July.

Still no Red Sox move to create spot for Eduardo Nunez, but Rafael Devers has to stay, right? "He hasn't hurt his cause by any means with what he's done in a very short look," manager John Farrell said. "We've talked quite a bit recently about the need to get offense, and today is a display of what he's capable of doing. So, he's taking care of what he can on his end."

Sale Away: Red Sox ace Ks 11 in 4-0 win over Mariners

Chris Sale pitched seven innings of three-hit ball, top prospect Rafael Devers became the youngest Boston player to hit a home run in more than 50 years, and the Red Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 4-0 on Wednesday to salvage the final game of the series.

Red Sox 4, Mariners 0: Chris Sale did it again, while Rafael Devers achieved a few firsts. Sale tossed seven scoreless innings and fanned 11 batters, marking his career-high 14th double-digit strikeout game this season. Devers recorded his first career hit -- a home run, no less -- against Mariners starter Andrew Moore in the third inning. Between them, the Cy Young favorite and the youngest player in the majors led the Red Sox to a victory that capped a 2-4 trip to the West Coast.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Chris Sale registered his 14th game with double-digit strikeouts this season. That's the 3rd most in a single season in Red Sox history, trailing only Pedro Martínez, who had 19 10-K games in 1999 and 15 in 2000.

Mariners lefty Marc Rzepczynski has given up eight hits this season to left-handed hitters and held lefties to .220 average in his career, but Rafael Devers notched a two-out single against him in the top of the seventh.

Red Sox's Devers launches HR for 1st MLB hit

Rafael Devers became the first Red Sox player since Daniel Nava in 2010 to homer for his first major league hit when he took Mariners right-hander Andrew Moore deep Wednesday at Safeco Field.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Rafael Devers (20 years, 275 days old) is the youngest Red Sox player to hit a home run since Tony Conigliaro in September 1965, according to the team.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Rafael Devers' first big-league hit is a solo homer to straightaway center field at Safeco. That's one way to convince the Red Sox to keep him around.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Red Sox don't seem to be considering a DL stint for Xander Bogaerts, who has dealt with groin injury, bruised hand and illness and is 4-for-34 with eight strikeouts in his last nine games. Timing, not injury, is the problem, according to John Farrell. "When you watch him in his early work, watch the BP he takes, it's hard to suggest any ailment is affecting his swing because he's driving the baseball out of the ballpark with routine ability," Farrell said.

Deadline deals for every team: Samardzija to Boston?

The Giants and Red Sox just made a deal, and another trade would make sense. Boston could use insurance in the rotation, while San Francisco could get a few nice pieces in return.
