Capsules of American League East teams, listed in order of finish last year:
CAGUAS, Puerto Rico (AP) — Hundreds of arms stretched into the sky in the hometown of Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora on Saturday as fans took pictures and video of the first man from Puerto Rico to lead a team to a World Series championship.
Cora held up the trophy that he had been cradling in his arms as he arrived in the city of Caguas with pitchers David Price and Eduardo Rodriguez and catcher Christian Vazquez, among others including Red Sox chairman Tom Werner.
BOSTON (AP) — The World Series champion Boston Red Sox have returned to Fenway Park, carrying the championship trophy they won a night earlier.
A caravan of buses arrived at Fenway on Monday night, less than 24 hours after the Red Sox beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 to win the World Series in five games, giving the organization its fourth title since 2004.
A couple hundred fans and about a half-dozen TV cameras were waiting for the team.
BOSTON (AP) — From playoff flop to October ace in two legacy-shifting starts, David Price earned his second postseason victory in a row and moved the Boston Red Sox halfway to yet another World Series title.
BOSTON (AP) — Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora has shuffled his lineup for Game 2 against the Houston Astros, putting infielders Ian Kinsler and Rafael Devers and catcher Christian Vazquez in the starting lineup for the first time in the AL Championship Series.
CHICAGO (AP) — The Boston Red Sox have activated left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez, catcher Christian Vazquez and knuckleballer Steven Wright from the 10-day disabled list.
Rodriguez had been sidelined by a sprained right ankle. Vazquez was out with a broken finger, and Wright had been dealing with left knee inflammation.
Rodriguez and Vazquez are slated to start Saturday's game against the Chicago White Sox. Rodriguez hasn't pitched in a big league game since July 14.
BOSTON (AP) — Shortstop Xander Bogaerts and outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. were among nine Boston players who reached deals on one-year contracts Friday with the AL East champion Red Sox.
Pitchers Joe Kelly, Drew Pomeranz, Eduardo Rodriguez and Brandon Workman, infielder Brock Holt and catchers Sandy Leon and Christian Vazquez also settled.
BOSTON (AP) — Right-hander Tyler Thornburg and the Boston Red Sox agreed to a $2.05 million, one-year contract that avoided arbitration and matched his 2017 salary.
The 29-year-old missed last season with a right shoulder impingement after the Red Sox acquired him from Milwaukee on Dec. 6. He was 14-9 with a 2.87 ERA in his five-year career with the Brewers.
BOSTON (AP) — Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Steven Souza Jr. left a game Friday night after colliding with the right-field wall at Fenway Park.
Souza was tracking a fly ball hit by Boston's Christian Vazquez in the fourth inning. The ball dropped just out of Souza's grasp, and he slammed into the wall as he fielded the hop. Souza managed to throw the ball back to the infield before collapsing in pain. He limped as he was helped off the field by trainers following a delay of several minutes.
TORONTO (AP) — Even after Kevin Pillar turned in his latest highlight-worthy grab in center field, Christian Vazquez and the Boston Red Sox managed to put a painful weekend behind them with another win north of the border.
Vazquez had four hits, including a two-run home run, Eduardo Nunez added a solo shot and the Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-5 on Monday night, snapping a four-game skid.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt is being treated for concussion-like symptoms after being struck in the mask.
Wendelstedt will not work the remainder of Cleveland's series against the Boston Rex Sox after he was hit flush on the protective mask by Boston reliever Joe Kelly on Monday night.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt has left a game after being struck on the mask by a warmup pitch from Boston Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly.
BOSTON (AP) — The game between the Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox scheduled for Wednesday night was postponed because of rain.
A makeup date was set for Aug. 14 at Fenway Park, starting at 6:10 p.m.
Thunderstorms came into the area around 4 o'clock. The grounds crew never took the tarp off before the game was called more than two hours after it was supposed to begin.
BOSTON (AP) — Christian Vazquez hit a three-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and the Boston Red Sox pulled off the final rally of a wild game Tuesday night, beating the Cleveland Indians 12-10 despite an astonishing catch by center fielder Austin Jackson.
BOSTON (AP) — With the game on the line, Christian Vazquez launched a long drive that even Austin Jackson couldn't reach.
BOSTON (AP) — Home plate umpire Chris Segal is remaining in the game after getting hit in the head by Josh Donaldson's bat in a game between the Blue Jays and Red Sox.
BOSTON (AP) — Drew Pomeranz wasn't expecting one rain delay, let alone two. But he got through both just fine.
Pomeranz pitched five solid innings, Chris Young hit a three-run homer and the Boston Red Sox moved into first place in the AL East with a 9-2 victory against the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night.
"It was kind of crazy. I didn't even realize it was supposed to rain at all tonight," Pomeranz said.
BOSTON (AP) — The realization that the Red Sox's injury woes had put him in an untenable situation came even before manager John Farrell had to shift catcher Christian Vazquez to third base, a position he hadn't played since he was an 18-year-old in Class-A ball.
In the infield alone, first baseman Mitch Moreland has an ailing toe, second baseman Dustin Pedroia has some bruised ribs and third baseman Pablo Sandoval has been dealing with an inner ear infection.
