Sox promote Bogaerts to Double-A

Xander Bogaerts was one of just two 19-year-old position players deemed worthy of an assignment to the High-A Carolina League to start this season. Not only did the highly regarded Red Sox prospect prove that he belonged at that level; he actually outperformed it, resulting in a promotion on Thursday from Salem to Double-A Portland. He is the only 19-year-old currently in the Eastern League.

"He's done a great job there [and] has all season," said Sox farm director Ben Crockett of Bogaerts' performance in Salem. "At this point, about a month left in the season, [we] felt it was the right time to push him up, coming off a streak of really good performance over the last week or 10 days. I thought it was the right time to go."

Bogaerts put up numbers that ranked among the best in the Carolina League this year. In 104 games, the shortstop out of Aruba hit .302 with a .378 OBP, .505 slugging mark, .883 OPS, 15 homers and 64 RBI,...

Bailey touches 94 in scoreless frame

PAWTUCKET -- Red Sox reliever Andrew Bailey, pitching in the second of back-to-back games for the first time since he started his rehab assignment, worked mostly in the low-90s but touched 94 mph while showing his fastball, curve, cutter and split over a scoreless inning for Triple-A Pawtucket. Bailey punched out two while working around an opposite field single.

Thursday afternoon's outing followed a 1-2-3 outing that included a strikeout on Wednesday. Bailey, in his return from thumb surgery, has now allowed one run in five innings at three levels of his rehab assignment. He has nine strikeouts and one walk.

Ranaudo's season could be over

Red Sox prospect Anthony Ranaudo, who last pitched on July 3 before being shut down due to dead arm, may not pitch again for Double-A Portland this year. According to a team source, an MRI on his shoulder came back clean, but his progress of rebuilding arm strength has nonetheless been more deliberate than expected. As such, while the Sox have not made a final decision, the odds are growing that the team will elect not to have him pitch again in Double-A this year, and instead have him continue on a steady progression to pitch again in Florida instructional league (after the end of the season for minor league affiliates) and perhaps in winter ball.

Ranaudo has struggled with injuries this year, as a slight groin injury in spring training prevented him from starting his season until mid-May. Once on the mound in Portland, he struggled with his mechanics for most of his nine starts, resulting in not just a 1-3 record, 6.69 ERA and command struggles (he both...

Lucchino: Valentine 'has done a good job'

Red Sox president and CEO Larry Lucchino was a guest of the Dennis & Callahan show on Thursday. The Sox, with a 10-9 loss to the Rangers on Wednesday, start a 10-game road trip on Thursday in Cleveland with a 55-57 record on the season, 10 games behind the Yankees in the AL East and 5.5 games out of the wild card. Lucchino was asked if there is a single factor that stands out when accessing the struggles of the Sox this season.

"There is no single source, there’s no single person," Lucchino said. "It’s a combination of factors. Ben (Cherington) has been saying that for while. Certainly, the stability and effectiveness of the starting pitching has been a place to start. ... I don’t mean to point fingers at anybody in particular because as I said earlier, there are a lot of factors that have contributed, there are probably transitional pains too from an organization that we had to an organization with new...
