'Rejuvenated' Koji rediscovers fastball, success

It was perhaps one of the more worrisome early-season signs for the Red Sox.

Not only the image of Koji Uehara blowing the save in Baltimore Saturday night, but doing so with an 85 mph fastball that he clearly didn’t feel comfortable throwing. The result was an ineffective primary pitch (split) and outing.

Monday night, Uehara doused some of the concerns.

The Red Sox closer needed 16 pitches to turn in a perfect ninth inning, which included a pair of strikeouts.

But beyond just the result, Uehara’s optimism stemmed from the actual pitches he was presenting. This time there were four fastballs (3 strikes) which lived in the 88 mph area, allowing for significantly different reaction from the Blue Jays’ hitters.

“With the pitch selection, I told Hani [catcher Ryan Hanigan] that I wanted to throw a lot more fastballs in this...

Goodell: Wells done with Deflategate interviews

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell told PBS’ Charlie Rose on Monday that he anticipates the Deflategate investigation will be over “soon,” and added that it’s his understanding that investigator Ted Wells has “finished the interview portion” of his probe.

Tuesday marks the 100th day since the AFC title game, when the report of the underinflated footballs first surfaced. For the record, Wells’ previous work for the NFL — his investigation into the Dolphins’ bullying scandal — took 100 days.

Orioles postpone game due to Baltimore riots

The Orioles’ game against the White Sox scheduled for Monday night at Camden Yards was postponed less than an hour before game time due to the race-related rioting that gripped Baltimore.

Rioters angered by the death of Freddie Gray, a young black man who died last week while in police custody, looted stores, set buildings and police vehicles on fire and threw rocks and bricks at police. Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan called in the National Guard and declared a state of emergency, and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake ordered a week of curfews.

“We feel like we made the decision that would provide us the greatest possible security in terms of protecting the fans, the players, the umpires, everybody involved in the game,” said MLB commissioner Rob...

Farrell on Kelly: 'He's got big-time stuff'

Red Sox starter Joe Kelly hit 100 MPH with his fastball a few times in Monday’s game against the Blue Jays.

With most pitchers that would be their go-to pitch, but not Kelly on Monday.

The Blue Jays hitters pounced on Kelly’s fastball and jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning and a 5-2 lead going into the bottom of the fourth. Kelly’s big mistake was to rookie Devon Travis in the second inning when he took a Kelly offering into the Monster seats for his sixth home run of the year.

Kelly managed to settle down (despite 33 first inning pitches) and went six innings, allowing five runs on five hits, while walking three and striking out a career-high 10 batters. He’s recorded at least seven strikeouts in three of his first four starts this season. This comes after not striking out more than six in a game prior to coming to the...
