Francona: Pedroia 'like a caged animal'

Red Sox manager Terry Francona made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show and announced that infielder Jed Lowrie will be inserted into the starting lineup for Wednesday's afternoon game vs. the A's in Oakland. "He's going to play shortstop today," Francona stated. He added that he expects to otherwise keep the lineup the same, with the exception of Dusty Brown catching.

 

Lowrie has yet to play this season due to mononucleosis. He just completed a 10-game stint in the minors preparing to return to Boston. He was activated along with pitcher Clay Buchholz. To make room, the Sox designated first baseman Ryan Shealy for assignment and sent Dustin Richardson to Triple-A Pawtucket.

 

Talking about the fact that more injured players are expected to make their way back into the lineup this week, Francona said he's happy to have them back, but he needs more than the "names" returning to the active...

Stark on D&H: Bullpen market is 'abysmal'

ESPN baseball insider Jayson Stark talked to the Dale & Holley show Wednesday on what he's heard from around the baseball world as July 31 looms. It seems like every team in contention, including the Red Sox, could look for some bullpen help via a trade, but according to Stark, they're not finding much.

 

"Right now, I think [the Red Sox] are mostly focused on relief pitchers,  and this is one of the most abysmal bullpen markets ever," Stark said. "I think it's almost unanimous that the most attractive relief pitcher on the market is, are you ready, Scott Downs of the Blue Jays. He's being priced insanely high, and for a team in the division, the Red Sox, the Yankees, the price is probably twice as high. You wouldn't get him for 60 cents on the dollar, you'd get him for like $2.60 on the dollar." 

 

If the Red Sox are running into trouble looking for a reliever, they may be in luck as they...

Lucchino on D&C: Luxury tax not a worry

Red Sox president/CEO Larry Lucchino talked to the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning, and with the trade deadline fast approaching, one of the biggest topics of conversation was the Red Sox off-the-field plans as they gear up for the final stretch. Lucchino was quick to dismiss any notion that the team will not pursue top trade targets despite recent reports that it has gone above the luxury-tax threshold.

 

"We are at the bottom end of the tax threshold. We're not at the highest tax rate. We're at the lowest tax rate," Lucchino said. "But [the idea that we'd spend less] is just not true. I'm telling you. I know what our financial plans are, and that is not true. We have money set aside to acquire talent if we can find it, but having said that this is not a promise or a prediction that a trade will happen. We're not going to do something just to keep our record alive by making deals on July 31."
