It’s one of the biggest stages in all of baseball and Tuesday night it will be the site of Henry Owens’ major league debut, as the 23-year-old will take to the mound for the first time in a big league uniform against the Yankees.
With Rick Porcello scheduled to start Tuesday and going on the disabled list Sunday, that opened a spot for Owens.
“Well, one we wanted to insert another starter and not move guys up. We wanted to provide an extra day of rest, so Tuesday is Henry’s day,” manager John Farrell said. “It’s going to be probably the biggest stage he’s going to make his debut on as schedule has it. Ideally having another left-hander going against that lineup in that ballpark. We’ll see him on Tuesday.”
Owens was the...
NFL officials have started to make their annual tour of training camps, and at most of the stops, it’s a chance for players and reporters to quiz referees about any new procedures or protocols for the upcoming season. So it was no surprise that when Friday at Steelers’ camp, officials met the the media and were asked about the new procedures surrounding treatment of the footballs — from now on, officials will mark each ball specifically and record the air pressure so they then can randomly test a ball in question at a later point if directed. It’s a routine that has grown out of the Deflategate drama.
Central Region supervisor of officials Gary Slaughter acknowledged there have been football inflation issues in the past.
“These are man-made products,” Slaughter explained Friday, specifically talking...

Junichi Tazawa has been the Red Sox‘ most dependable reliever this season, but even he can have a bad day once in awhile.
Unfortunately for the Red Sox and Wade Miley, Tazawa allowed two eighth inning runs in the their 4-3 loss to the Rays, spoiling a good start from Miley.
With the Red Sox leading 3-2 in the eighth, Evan Longoria doubled to leadoff the inning and scored on Asdrubal Cabrera’s ground-rule double. Cabrera scored on a single by James Loney for the game-winning run. Tazawa picked up his fourth loss of the season.
“Today you have five consecutive fastballs to Asdrubal [Cabrera], which is a little bit...
Many where wondering how the Red Sox were going to approach Rick Porcello’s scheduled start Tuesday, with the righty suffering through a two-inning, 10-hit, six-run outing in his last appearance. Sunday there was an answer.
The Red Sox placed Porcello on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to July 30) with a right triceps strain. Taking the place on the Sox’ 25-man roster is newly-acquired reliever Ryan Cook.
“He came out of his last start with soreness and inflammation in his triceps,” said Red Sox manager John Farrell. “The best way could have done would have been to push him back to Saturday to give him ample time, but we felt like that was going to be too much of a risk. We feel...
