Bostons´ Dustin Pedroia has serious setback in recovery

Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has suffered a “significant setback” while rehabbing his left knee injury, a team spokesman confirmed.

“As a result, his status for spring training is uncertain,” said Kevin Gregg.

Gregg did not elaborate on the nature of this setback, which exacerbated an injury that has plagued Pedroia for several campaigns.

The 2008 American League MVP’s knee troubles started in 2017, when his left knee was injured in a play involving Baltimore’s Manny Machado. Pedroia underwent surgery in October of that year.

He also underwent a joint preservation procedure in July 2018 to remove scar tissue and another in August 2019, in which bone spurs were removed.

Pedroia’s contract includes salaries of $13 million this season and $12 million in 2021, and he counts $13.28 million toward Boston’s luxury tax payroll.

Pedroia is a four-time All-Star, was the 2007 American League Rookie of the Year and has played for two World Series championship teams in 2007 and 2013.

The news comes at a difficult time for the Red Sox organization, which is adjusting to a new head of baseball operations and lost manager Alex Cora after he was implicated in the Astros’ sign-stealing scheme during their run to the 2017 World Series title.

After the surgery, Pedroia’s mindset shifted, and he indicated to the Red Sox that he hoped to return to the field and become an everyday player again. But news of his latest setback brings up the question of retirement, given that he is now three campaigns removed from a fully healthy season, when he played 154 matches for Boston in 2016.

Red Sox general manager Brian O’Halloran expressed optimism for Pedroia’s return as recently as the GM meetings in November.

“He’s been working out and doing well by his own account and we’re going to talk to him and learn more,” O’Halloran said. “I don’t think anything specifically has changed. I think it’s more that time has passed and he’s been feeling better.”

Boston Red Sox vs Baltimore Orioles

Boston Red Sox vs Baltimore Orioles

Wednesday MLB action from Oriole Park, the Boston Red Sox and the Baltimore Orioles will be continuing their early-week series.

The success of the Boston Red Sox offense has been attributed to the ageless production of David Ortiz and the long hitting streaks enjoyed by Jackie Bradley Jr. and Xander Bogaerts, but everyone in the lineup is capable of putting up big numbers. Mookie Betts will try to follow up his career day at the plate when the Red Sox visit the Baltimore Orioles in the third of a four-game series on Wednesday.

This will be the third game of a four-game set. On Monday in the opener, the Red Sox took a dominant 7-2 victory. In Tuesday’s matchup, the Red Sox scored five times in the first two innings on the way to a 6-2 win.

On Wednesday, the Red Sox will be trotting out right-hander Joe Kelly. In his five starts and 2-0 record this year, Kelly has posted a 6.30 ERA with a 2.00 WHIP in 20 innings. In his 4.2 innings against Toronto on Friday, Kelly gave up five runs on nine hits with three walks.

Boston boasts a pretty stacked lineup at the plate. Xander Bogaerts holds 76 hits with 30 RBI and 42 runs. Mookie Betts has a team-high 49 runs with 65 hits and 40 RBI. Betts smacked a crazy three homers with five RBI on Tuesday. The ageless David Ortiz has a nice 14 homers with 47 RBI and 26 runs.

Over on the Orioles’ side, we’ll be seeing right-hander Mike Wright make the start Wednesday. Over nine games (eight starts) and a 2-3 record this year, Wright has put up a 5.05 ERA with a 1.40 WHIP in 46.1 total innings. On Friday, Wright was beat up for three runs on six hits in 4.2 innings against the Indians.

The Baltimore batting order is a pretty solid crew as well. Manny Machado is out front on 64 hits with 38 runs and 29 RBI with 13 homers this year. Mark Trumbo has 56 hits with 28 runs and 37 RBI with a team-high 15 homers. Jonathan Schoop has also played well on 48 hits with 28 RBI and 19 runs. That said, Trumbo and Schoop combined to go 0-for-8 on Tuesday.

The Red Sox are 7-1 in their last eight Wednesday games, and 18-6 in their last 24 game threes of a series.
Meanwhile, the Orioles are 11-5 in their last 16 Wednesday games and 4-1 in Wright’s last five starts.

Colorado Rockies vs Boston Red Sox

Colorado Rockies vs Boston Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox are 20-10 against teams below .500. They are 7-7 against teams .500 or better.

Boston looks to continue the trend of beating up on subpar teams this week when it hosts the Rockies for three games (Tuesday-Thursday).

The Colorado  Rockies are playing well enough to reside in second in the National League West but that isn’t good enough to snag a spot in the postseason if it began today. The Rockies took a step back in an 8-3 defeat at Fenway Park for their 5th loss in six contests. Colorado starter Jorge De La Rosa was charged with seven runs on nine hits and three BB over 3.1 frames to absorb the loss. The Rockies offense couldn’t keep pace on six hits and a walk with Gerardo Parra driving in a pair while Charlie Blackmon went solo. Chad Bettis is shooting for back to back wins when he opposes the Red Sox for the first time in his career. Bettis knocked off the Cardinals 3-1 on the road last time out with the lone run scored on five hits and a pair of BB over 6.2 innings.

The Boston Red Sox have their sights set on the top spot in the American League East. The Red Sox continued to play well Tuesday and have won four of five to stay in the Orioles shadow. Ace David Price picked up the win with all three runs allowed on five hits and a BB through seven innings while striking out six. Boston pounded out 12 hits and walked five times with David Ortiz going 2-4 with four runs driven in while Xander Bogaerts and Dustin Pedroia combined for five hits and four runs.Steven Wright toes the rubber for the first time in his career versus the Rockies. Wright did not receive a decision in a 3-2 loss at Kansas City with all three runs allowed on five hits in eight frames.

Boston Red Sox vs Oakland Athletics

Boston Red Sox vs Oakland Athletics

Fenway Park and the Boston Red Sox battle the Oakland Athletics in Wednesday night action.

The Boston Red Sox offense is having its way with the Oakland Athletics pitching staff from every spot in the batting order. The Athletics will try to hold the Red Sox to single digits in runs and avoid a sweep when they visit Fenway Park for the finale of a three-game series on Wednesday.

The Boston bats got the best of the Oakland Athletics for the second straight night with a 13-5 decision on Tuesday night. Athletics Sean Manaea was hit hard with eight runs allowed on ten hits over 2.2 frames with Daniel Coulombe giving up three more. The A’s totaled 15 hits and walked once with Coco Crisp driving in a pair while Marcus Semien went 2-4 with an RBI and run. Overall every starter recorded at least one hit. Eric Surkamp will be on the mound to oppose the Red Sox in Wednesday action.  Surkamp has four starts under his belt and has gone 2-2 with a 5.59 ERA over 19.1 innings.
The Boston Red Sox have been crushing the ball and were at their best Tuesday, which overcame some average starting pitching. Red Sox starter Sean O’Sullivan was charged with four runs on 12 hits through six innings which was good enough to pick up the win. The Boston bats amassed 16 hits and a trio of base on balls with Travis Shaw going 3-5 with a homer, five RBI’s and two runs while Hanley Ramirez was 3-4 with a homer, two RBI’s and three runs. Xander Bogaerts and Chris Young each scored two times each. And every starter but one scored or drove in a run. Rick Porcello toes the rubber against the Athletics looking for his 6th victory. Porcello hopes to bounce back from a 3-2 loss at the Yankees with all three runs plated on six hits and a pair of BB in seven frames.

Oakland is 1-7 in their last 8 overall and are 1-7 in their last 8 games on grass while the over is 15-5-2 in their last 22 Wednesday games. The over is 7-1 in Boston’s last 8 vs. American League West and the Red Sox are 11-4 in their last 15 overall while going  11-4 in their last 15 games on grass.

Key Hitters

Red Sox: Brock Holt

2016 Season (25 Games): .282/.354/.388, 2 HR, 17 RBI
Career vs A’s (12 Games): .302/.375/.326, 4 RBI

The Brock Star has recovered from a slump to collect 5 hits in his last 14 at-bats (.357). Holt’s batting average plummeted to as low as .246 during his recent slide, but has now bounced back to the range he has been at in his two previous seasons with the Red Sox.

Athletics: Josh Reddick

2016 Season (31 Games): .319/.375/.474, 4 HR, 15 RBI
Career vs Red Sox (24 Games): .294/.354/.506, 4 HR, 17 RBI

The former Red Sox outfielder is having a career year so far. While he hasn’t quite displayed the type of power he has in the past, his AVG, OBP and SLG are all at career levels. He’s done some damage against his former team in the past, so Red Sox pitchers will need to be wary of Reddick when he steps to the plate in this series.

The Boston Red Sox have been clicking on all cylinders with the pitching and hitting both contributing to wins in eight of ten which has them atop the AL East. The Red Sox come off of a three game sweep of the Yankees following an 8-7 win on Sunday where the offense saved the day. Boston ace David Price gave up six runs on eight hits over seven frames which was good enough to get the win. The Red Sox amassed 14 hits and walked three times with  Travis Shaw and Christian Vasquez slamming two run jacks while Hanley Ramirez drove in two and scored. The Boston Red Sox send Steven Wright to the bump in search of his third straight victory. Wright defeated the Braves 9-4 last time out with two runs plated (one earned) on three hits and three BB in seven frames.

The Chicago White Sox showed some resiliency in Baltimore this past weekend to earn a split of their four game series after dropping the first two.  Overall the Pale Hose have won eight of ten after dominating the Orioles 7-1 on Sunday. White Sox starter Chris Sale was stingy as usual with the lone run allowed on five hits and four free passes through 5.1 innings while four relievers held Baltimore scoreless. The CWS attack consisted of 13 hits and six walks with Brett Lawrie going 3-3 with a solo homer while Jerry Sands knocked in two runs as every starter but one scored or drove in runs. Left hander Jose Quintana toes the rubber for the White Sox with his third straight shutout on his mind. Quintana is coming off of a 4-0 win at Toronto with six scoreless innings while striking out ten.

The Line: Atlanta Braves +126 / Boston Red Sox -136

The Boston Red Sox look for a solid road victory to get a game above a .500 record. The Red Sox seem to have found their offense as of late with 16 runs scored against the Astros and six or more runs scored in four of their last five games. The Boston Red Sox are 9-4 this season when scoring more than three runs. Dustin Pedroia leads Boston with 25 hits, Mookie Betts has 14 RBI and David Ortiz has three home runs.

No matter the situation, the Boston Red Sox fought back time and time again Sunday to pull out a 12-inning victory.

Despite a short outing by their starter, leaning on the bullpen for more than eight innings and a blown save in the ninth, the Red Sox never caved en route to a 7-5 victory against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.

The Atlanta Braves are desperate for a victory after losing their last five games. The Braves simply can’t put runs on the board, as they’ve produced three or less in five straight games and 11 of their 18 games overall this season. The Atlanta Braves four victories this season have come when they’ve scored six or more runs. Nick Markakis leads Atlanta with 20 hits, Adonis Garcia has six RBI and Freddie Freeman has one home run.

Over/Under: 8.5

The New York Yankees are on the verge of being eliminated from contention in the American League East race and the rival Boston Red Sox are waiting to push them over the edge. The Red Sox will try to post their fourth straight shutout win when they visit the Yankees in the opener of a four-game series on Monday

The Boston Red Sox look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Red Sox have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Red Sox have won six straight when scoring more than three runs. Xander Bogaerts leads Boston with 190 hits and 80 RBI while Mookie Betts and David Ortiz have combined for 176 RBI. The Boston Red Sox have split their last six road games. Eduardo Rodriguez takes the hill, and he’s 9-6 with a 3.97 ERA and 93 strikeouts this season. Rodriguez is 2-1 with a 2.45 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.

The New York Yankees look to remain hot after winning six of their last nine games. The Yankees have scored 10 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last seven games. The Yankees have lost five of their last eight when scoring three or less runs. Chase Headley leads New York with 147 hits and 62 RBI while Brett Gardner and Didi Gregorius have combined for 119 RBI. The New York Yankees have won four of their last five home games. Masahiro Tanaka takes the hill, and he’s 12-7 with a 3.38 ERA and 136 strikeouts this season. Tanaka is 4-2 with a 4.84 ERA and 29 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.

The Red Sox are 8-3 in their last 11 during game 1 of a series and 0-4 in Rodriguezs last 4 road starts. The Yankees are 4-1 in their last 5 games on grass and 5-2 in their last 7 Monday games. The Red Sox are 3-10 in the last 13 meetings.

The AL East is all but out of reach for the Yankees. Also, Rodriguez has been solid against the Yankees this season and these games are usually close.

PITCHING MATCHUP:

Red Sox LH Eduardo Rodriguez (9-6, 3.97 ERA) vs. Yankees RH Ivan Nova (6-9, 4.87) Rodriguez allowed three runs on six hits and a pair of walks in six innings against Tampa Bay last Monday without factoring in the decision. That snapped a string of three straight outings of surrendering exactly one earned run, but marked the 16th time in 20 outings that the opposition failed to reach the 22-year-old Venezuelan for more than three earned runs. Rodriguez has limited New York to two or fewer runs in each of his three starts against the division rivals.Nova is 1-5 in his last six starts, but held the mighty Blue Jays to one run and four hits in 5 2/3 innings of a 4-0 loss on Wednesday. The 28-year-old Dominican has completed seven innings only once in his 15 starts this season. Nova was reached for three runs in six innings at Boston on Aug. 31 to suffer a loss to fall to 3-5 with a 4.99 ERA in 11 career games – 10 starts – against the Red Sox.

WALK-OFFS

  1. New York’s magic number to clinch a postseason spot is three.
  2. Boston SS Xander Bogaerts added two more hits on Sunday and needs 10 over the final seven games to reach 200.
  3. New York CF Jacoby Ellsbury has recorded multiple hits in five of his last eight games.

Boston Red Sox at Tampa Bay Rays

The Tampa Bay Rays return to Tropicana Field after a long nine-game road trip to start a ten-game home stand. Tampa Bay, who entered the road trip 64-66 and 4.5 games back of the second wild card, did not help their chances during the trip that started off with such high hopes. After winning the first two games of the road trip in Baltimore, they lost 5 of the next 7 games, losing 2 out of 3 to both the Yankees and Tigers. The end results are a road trip of 4-5, which is even more heartbreaking with two losses coming in extra innings.

From Online Sportsbook, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling option.

The Tampa Bay Rays have played well for the most part this season but they are going to fall short of the post-season. The Rays are 5-5 in their last 10 games, 33-35 at home, and they are 11 games back in the AL East. As a team the Rays are hitting .250 with Logan Forsythe hitting .287, Evan Longoria hitting .273, and Asdrubal Cabrera hitting .264. The Rays pitching staff has an ERA of 3.68 with the starters at 3.65 and the bullpen at 3.74. For game one against the Red Sox the Rays start Chris Archer who has allowed 148 hits and 60 earned runs while striking out 228 over 187.1 innings for a 12-11 record and a 2.88 ERA
The Boston Red Sox are in last place in the American League East but they have been more competitive since the All Star Break. The Red Sox are 6-4 in their last 10 games, 27-38 on the road, and they are 13 games back in the AL East. As a team the Red Sox are hitting .267 with Xander Bogaerts hitting .318, Mookie Betts hitting .286, and Brock Holt hitting .279. The Red Sox pitching staff has an ERA of 4.50 with the starters at 4.57 and the bullpen at 4.39. For game one against the Rays the Red Sox start Wade Miley who has allowed 174 hits and 83 earned runs while striking out 129 over 168.2 innings for an 11-10 record and a 4.43 ERA.

Tampa Bay is 8-1 at home against a left-handed starter, 2-5 in their last seven games, and 2-5 in Archer’s last seven starts in game one of a series. Boston is 5-1 in their last six games, 2-7 in their last nine road games against a team with a losing home record, and 0-5 in Miley’s last five road starts.

New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox

New York Yankees at Boston Red SoxCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

(espn.go.com)- As they look to keep fighting in the AL East chase, the visiting Yankees are hoping Masahiro Tanaka can continue to pitch well Wednesday against the Boston Red Sox.

After missing three games at Atlanta and Monday’s 4-3 loss at Fenway Park, Teixeira was sent back to New York for further tests on his injured shin. The results weren’t positive as the first baseman will miss at least two weeks with a significant bone bruise.

Rick Porcello pitched great, which is what mattered most to the Boston Red Sox.

The New York Yankees won, which is what mattered most to the New York American League Baseball Club.

Porcello struck out a career-high 13 batters and walked just one in eight innings, but a two-run double by Stephen Drew in the fifth and a home run by Brett Gardner that wrapped around the Pesky Pole in the eighth was enough to give the Yankees a 3-1 win over the Red Sox before 35,077 in Fenway Park.

From Online Sportsbook, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling option.

Drew’s two-out double followed an error by rookie first baseman Travis Shaw, who allowed Didi Gregorius’ grounder to skip under his glove with Alex Rodriguez on first with a single. Drew hit a 2-and-0 pitch from Porcello, his first 2-and-0 count of the night.

Gardner’s home run also came with two out.

The Sox scored their only run on a double by Jackie Bradley Jr. and a two-out, opposite-field single by Pablo Sandoval in the third off Yankees starter Michael Pineda. Pineda gave up four hits, did not walk a batter and struck out seven in six innings.

The Sox threatened in the eighth against Yankees setup man Dellin Betances on singles by Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts, but with David Ortiz at the plate and two out, Betts was called out for oversliding third base on an attempted double steal.

The call was reviewed by replay officials in New York, who issued the following ruling:

“After viewing all relevant angles, the Replay Official definitively determined that the runner lost contact with third base while the fielder was applying the tag. Additionally, the umpires on the field determined that the fielder did not push the runner off the base, a decision that is not reviewable. The call is CONFIRMED. The runner is out.”

Ortiz struck out on the next pitch to end the inning, and former Sox left-hander Andrew Miller struck out three batters in the ninth to register his 29th save. Miller has 73 strikeouts in just 47 1/3 innings.

The most recent Red Sox pitcher to whiff 13 or more or more while walking one or fewer was Jon Lester, on July 24, 2010, when he K’d 13 and walked one in a 5-1 loss. The last Sox pitcher to do so at Fenway: Curt Schilling, when he walked one and struck out 14 in eight scoreless innings in a 3-2 Red Sox win.

Nine of Porcello’s 13 strikeouts came on a called third strike.

What it means: The Toronto Blue Jays were up 1.5 games on the Yankees coming into Tuesday in the American League East and were tied with the Cleveland Indians as of this writing. If Toronto wins, the two teams will stay dead-locked in the division. A loss brings the Yankees to within a half-game.
