Farm Report: Johnson exits with reported illness

A look at the action in the Red Sox farm system on Monday:

TRIPLE-A PAWTUCKET RED SOX (38-41): L, 6-0 and L, 3-0, at Rochester (Twins)

— The first game of Monday’€™s doubleheader was a continuation of the June 5 contest suspended due to rain after two innings with Rochester leading, 1-0. That would be all the offense Rochester would need as the PawSox managed just five hits — all singles.

— Right-hander Keith Couch pitched all six innings in Game 1, allowing nine hits and five earned runs. He walked one and struck out one. Righty Zeke Spruill, who started the game June 5, suffered the loss and fell to 3-2 on the season.

— Left-hander Brian Johnson started the second game of the doubleheader, but left after throwing just five pitches. According to...

De Aza on style of play: 'That's the De Aza way'

TORONTO — After now watching Alejandro De Aza run around he outfield as a member of the Red Sox for 20 games now, it was asked if the “hair on fire” approach was what we should get used to.

“That’€™s the De Aza way,” the outfielder explained. “That’€™s how I like to play the game. I dont like to be lazy in the game because I’€™m a runner too and I know you give the opposite team runner a chance to advance to the other base. So I do it as quick as I can.”

Since taking over left field for the past five games due to Hanley Ramirez‘ left hand injury, De Aza has been flying around with great success.

Offensively, the 31-year-old has totaled a .474 batting average during his stint as Ramirez’ replacement, hitting three...

Ramirez on diagnosis: 'It was a relief'

TORONTO — Hanley Ramirez arrived at Rogers Centre Monday night in time to see his Red Sox claim a 3-1 win over the Blue Jays.

He also showed up early enough to execute something that had been eluding him since injuring his left hand last Wednesday. Ramirez was able to swing a bat, hitting balls off a tee.

The exercise made more feasible in Ramirez’ mind after getting word that his injury was just a “deep bone bruise,” following an MRI performed back in Boston.

“It was a relief because the pain I was having, in my mind I didn’t know what was happening,” Ramirez told WEEI.com before leaving the ballpark Monday night. “There was too much pain. But we got the MRI...

Buchholz dominant in Red Sox win over Jays

Have the Red Sox found their ace?

Clay Buchholz earned the Opening Day start for the Red Sox, and then endured some of the same ups and downs to afflict the rest of the rotation. Unlike starters such as Rick Porcello and Joe Kelly (and Wade Miley and Justin Masterson, for that matter), Buchholz has clearly righted the ship.

Needing a big outing from their best starter to open an all-important four-game series in Toronto, the Red Sox got one...
