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...
FOXBORO — The Patriots worked out in full pads for a second straight day, and for a second straight day Dont’a Hightower and rookie defensive lineman Xzavier Dickson were in non-contact red jerseys.
For a second day in a row, there was no sighting of running back Tyler Gaffney or rookie tight end A.J. Derby on the field.
The team then progressed to walkthrough with Tom Brady again getting the majority of time with the ones and Jimmy Garoppolo working with the twos. It was interesting to note LeGarrette Blount was working with Garoppolo and the second team.
Second-year corner Malcolm Butler was matched up against Julian Edelman on the outside. Tarell Brown played with the second team, also on the right corner. A funny moment came when Edelman leaped and caught a pass from Brady...

In the eighth, an RBI ground out from Garin Cecchini (Boston’s No. 14 prospect at MLB....
Following the reports of Larry Lucchino stepping down as president as CEO of the Red Sox, Lucchino released a statement Sunday morning.
The statement reads:
As far back as 2004, the year of our first world championship, I started to plan for the day when I would want to cut back a little. I even inserted a clause to that effect in my contract.
Then, after the 2013 season, I had further conversations with John Henry, Tom Werner, and Mike Gordon regarding a time in the future when I might transition to a new role and reduce my responsibilities. After all, it’s a wonderful job, but it’s a demanding job.
I believe the end of this year is a good time for this change. We would have preferred to announce all of our transition plans at once, including my new role, but I can tell you we all feel strongly that Sam Kennedy, who has...
