Carson Smith having tough time watching Sox

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — It goes without saying, the Red Sox could have used Carson Smith this season.

The righty reliever was brought in during the offseason to help fill the void the Red Sox currently find themselves with — uncovering someone who can lock down the eighth inning. But thanks to Tommy John surgery on May 26, Smith never got his chance to make a mark in 2016.

As is the case with most Tommy John patients, the long-term prognosis for Smith is good. In three weeks he will start throwing for the first time, and continue on a schedule that usually lands pitchers back on the mound a year out from their operation.

But the light at the end of the tunnel hasn’t made dealing with this season any easier for Smith.

“I pick and choose. But sometimes it’s tough to watch the games,” said the 26-year-old while visiting his teammates at Tropicana Field Wednesday afternoon. “Obviously, I want to...

Sandoval shows off improved physique

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The Pablo Sandoval redemption tour is in full swing.

The third baseman reappeared with the Red Sox Wednesday afternoon, having traveled up from Fort Myers, where he has been executing his road back from left shoulder surgery. Judging by appearances, the first step of the process seems to be going well.

Sandoval has dropped 22 pounds, looking noticeably thinner than when he left Boston to train at Fenway South in June. The third baseman reported that he trains at the Sox’ spring training facility from 6 a.m.-1 p.m., six days a week.

Besides the structured workouts, which started to include fielding ground balls Monday, Sandoval has been routinely riding a mountain bike approximately 10 miles a day. (A routine confirmed with the program monitoring the workouts on his phone.)

“It’s tough,” Sandoval said. “But like I said you learn your lesson from all the mistakes you make. You’re...

Stork traded to Redskins for conditional '17 pick

FOXBORO — After a wild day of reporting and speculation about the future of Bryan Stork, the offensive lineman was officially traded to the Washington Redskins Wednesday afternoon for a conditional seventh-round draft pick in next year’s draft.

The day started with a report from the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport that Stork, a fourth-round pick of the Patriots in 2014, had been released by the Patriots.

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo even acknowledged his departure from the Patriots locker room, saying it was “...

Report: Stork considering retirement

A strange situation just got even stranger.

Early Wednesday morning center Bryan Stork was reportedly informed of his release from the Patriots. Then, according to the Boston Herald’s Jeff Howe, word got out and the Redskins called the Patriots about a trade as the move hadn’t been official, and if he was just released any team in the league could have claimed him.

The Patriots then reportedly agreed to trade him to the Redskins for a conditional seventh-round pick, but that’s when things got even stranger.

According to multiple reports, Stork is now considering retiring.

Stork is 25 years old and he’s had at least a concussion every year since his senior year at Florida State.

Farrell on D&H: Buchholz likely back to bullpen

Red Sox manager John Farrell made his regular appearance on the Dale & Holley show with Thornton on Wednesday to discuss the starting rotation and other team news. To hear the interview, visit the D&H audio on demand page.

Clay Buchholz has made three spot starts for the Red Sox with both Steven Wright and Eduardo Rodriguez out with injuries, and he has performed well enough to put himself in the running for a permanent spot in the rotation. Farrell said “it probably looks like Clay by default” will return to the bullpen, however, once Wright and Rodriguez are healthy enough to start.

“Setting aside the decision, he’s done a heck of a job in the three starts he’s made for us,” Farrell said. “He seemingly is getting deeper into...
