Ineffective E-Rod (9 ER) chewed out by Pedroia

The time for niceties is over and it looks like Dustin Pedroia has seen enough.

With Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez imploding vs. the Rays — he allowed five runs in the first inning alone on Monday night — Pedroia decided it was time for some tough love. As the following Vine illustrates, Pedroia did not mince words with Rodriguez during a mound visit in the second.

— John Tomase (@jtomase) June 28, 2016

The second baseman’s final words after the animated discussion appeared to be, “Let’s go!”

The speech didn’t have its desired effect. Rodriguez came back out for the third and allowed nine runs before being lifted. His entire evening was...

Betts, JBJ still trending toward ASG starts

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — They’re one week away.

For the last time before the final voting is announced, Major League Baseball released the leaders in All-Star balloting. And, as it stands, the Red Sox seem well-positioned to boast at least four position players as starters for the American League.

Both Jackie Bradley Jr. and Mookie Betts currently are in the top three in voting for outfielders, only trailing Mike Trout. Betts is just ahead of both Kansas City’s Lorenzo Cain and Mark Trumbo of Baltimore.

“It’s definitely cool. You can’t say you never dreamed about,” Betts said. “It’s definitely something I would love to be a part of. We’re kind of struggling right now so my mind is kind of somewhere else right now. But I’m going to do the best I can and in doing that the All-Star voting will take care of itself. Just take care of business, and that business will take care of...

Sox notes: Holt eyes weekend; Clay to start

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — We have a Brandon Workman sighting.

The reliever, who is coming back from Tommy John surgery, made an appearance at Tropicana Field Monday, throwing a bullpen session in front of Red Sox manager John Farrell. Workman has been participating in games in Fort Myers.

“I’ve been throwing about on a five-day schedule down there, but I just recently took some time off, and now I’m starting to ramp back up and start pushing forward through it,” said Workman, explaining that his time off was an opportunity to fix some mechanical issues.

“I’d just been working full steam ahead for a while there, so it was a breather to catch my breath and get everything back where it needs to be, and now I’m ramping back up again.”

“He threw the ball good,” said Farrell of the bullpen session. “Typical with a Tommy John recovery, there’s going to be some ups and...

Ortiz returns to lineup as Sox face reeling Rays

David Ortiz is back in the Red Sox lineup as they open a three-game series with the Rays in Tampa.

Ortiz missed Sunday’s 6-2 loss to the Rangers to rest his aching heels, but manager John Farrell told reporters he should start all three games in Tampa.

The Red Sox have dropped nine of their last 14, including two straight in Texas, but they’re on fire compared to the Rays, who have lost 11 straight to drop a season-high 13 1/2 games out of first place.

Here’s the lineup, in this battle of Red Sox left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez vs. Rays counterpart Blake Snell:

RF Mookie Betts 2B Dustin Pedroia SS Xander Bogaerts DH David Ortiz 1B Hanley Ramirez CF Jackie Bradley Jr. CF LF Bryce Brentz C Sandy Leon C 3B Marco Hernandez
