    How to make room for Wilson, Buchholz?

    As Alex Wilson keeps dealing for the Portland Sea Dogs (see the Press Herald story), he seems ready to mover up toe Triple-A. But how to make room for him. The PawSox already have five starters – Kyle Weiland, Felix Doubront, Matt Fox, Brandon Duckworth and Kevin Millwood. And while the Sox figure out how to move up Wilson, they have another decision to make. When Clay Buchholz comes off […]

    Cameron memories; the kids rise; stealing to win (twice); Lavarnway (again)

    Mike Cameron was designated for assignment Thursday, struggling with a .149 average. Signing Cameron to a two-year deal last year was not a good move by Theo Epstein. But Cameron did live up to expectations as a "character guy." When he spent a few days in Portland last year on rehab, he seemed to elevate everyone at Hadlock Field with his optimism and respect (for people and the game). After […]

    Pimentel scratched, Navarro up; Dogs lineup

    Stolmy Pimentel will not start for the Sea Dogs tonight as scheduled because the Sea Dogs bullpen may not be able to support him. Pimentel (0-8, 9.20) has been limited to three or fewer in his last four starts, as the Red Sox try to get their pitching prospect back on track. But the Sea Dogs bullpen has been taxed recently and would be stretched to covered six-plus innings tonight. […]

    Five Sea Dogs named to Eastern League All-Star Game

    The Sea Dogs may have the worst record in the Eastern League, but Portland does feature some individual talent. Five players were named to play in the Eastern League All-Star Game on July 13 in Manchester, N.H. The five: pitchers Stephen Fife and Alex Wilson, third baseman Will Middlebrooks, and outfielder Chih-Hsien Chiang and Alex Hassan. Fife, who will be making his second straight appearance, leads the Sea Dogs in wins […]

    The Sea Dogs 7-man rotation; and an arrival from Greenville

    The Portland Sea Dogs pitching staff is going through a little transition, which is why reliever Charlie Rosario was sent up from Greenville. He had a 2.64 ERA in 17 games. A reliever is needed when you consider the Sea Dogs currently have seven starters on their roster. Alex Wilson, Stephen Fife, Michael Lee, Brock Huntzinger and Stolmy Pimentel began the season in Portland, and all five are still here. […]

    Clay, Khoury, Chiang and Alex

    It has been a difficult year for Caleb Clay, his first full season as a reliever. But he came through late Tuesday night with 3 1/3 innings (2 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 3 K), picking up his first win in an 11-5 win over New Britain. The game was close until a seven-run sixth inning broke it open. Ryan Khoury (3-for-4) hit the game-winning RBI with a double. Chih-Hsien […]

    Sea Dogs making moves; Middlebrooks due back Thursday

    So Miguel Gonzalez got hit hard Monday and was promoted to Triple-A Pawtucket. Jeremy Kehrt pitched six gutsy innings Monday and got demoted to Class A Salem. Confused? Here is a two-word answer: paper moves. The Sea Dogs have a doubleheader tonight and a noon game Thursday. They need fresh pitchers. So Gonzalez, Kehrt and Cesar Cabral (temporarily inactive) were taken off the roster. Gonzalez and Kehrt are still here, but "officially" […]

    A promising first base prospect

    With Adrian Gonzalez signed through 2018, the Red Sox don’t have an immediate need to develop a first baseman, except in an emergency situation. Still, it’s interesting to note today’s minor league transaction as low Class A Greenville and advanced Class A Salem switched first basemen. Miles Head, 20, got the promotion. He was hitting .338 in Greenville with 15 home runs and a 1.022 OPS. Head was a 26th-round […]

    Tazawa tonight; more Lavarnway; Greenville’s clout

    When I left Portland manage Kevin Boles’ office Sunday in New Hampshire, I said I hope T-B-A gives him a quality start on Monday. Boles smiled. While today’s starter is To Be Announced, the announced name is expected to be Junichi Tazawa. Since Tazawa is not yet on the Sea Dogs roster, the team cannot officially say who is starting today. The Red Sox organization usually waits until the last minute to announce […]
