Schoeneweis becomes a free agent

Left-hander Scott Schoeneweis, whom the Red Sox designated for assignment on May 20, cleared release waivers and is now a free agent. The left-hander, whom the Sox picked up in the last week of spring training after he was released by the Brewers, was 1-0 with a 7.90 ERA in 15 games for the Sox. Though he struck out 10 of the 29 left-handed hitters whom he faced, southpaws hit .346 with a .914 OPS against him.

Red Sox Recap: No Doc, no regrets

On a day when Roy Halladay was perfect, the Red Sox were not left to lament the one who got away. The Sox took their shot at acquiring the former Blue Jays ace last summer, but 10 months later, even as Halladay dominates (7-3, 1.99) for the Phillies, the Sox have been just as well off for not having acquired the man who has been the best pitcher in baseball since 2002.

 

That is because acquiring Halladay would have come at a cost of Clay Buchholz, who continued his own emergence as a top-of-the-rotation pitcher on Saturday, as he outperformed reigning AL Cy Young winner Zack Greinke in a 1-0 victory over the Royals. (For details of the game, see Closing Time.)

Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
