BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox have agreed to a one-year contract with reliever Heath Hembree, avoiding salary arbitration.
Hembree's non-guaranteed deal is worth $1,312,500. He had a $581,500 salary this year.
The 29-year-old Hembree went 4-1 with a 4.20 ERA in 67 appearances last season, helping the Red Sox win the World Series. The right-hander made four scoreless appearances in the playoffs covering 4 2/3 innings.
BOSTON (AP) — Hooting and hollering, Chris Taylor and a couple of Dodgers took aim at the Green Monster. With their arms, not bats.
Standing in left field, they kept throwing balls at a small, square space in the scoreboard, shouting every time a miss clanged off the metal letters.
"I've got good aim!" Taylor shouted after he finally tossed one through, ending the contest Monday.
A lot of fun for Los Angeles, frolicking at Fenway Park during a World Series workout.
BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox knuckleballer Steven Wright has been replaced on the AL Division Series roster with reliever Heath Hembree.
Wright has inflammation in his left knee and a loose body. He is ineligible for the rest of the best-of-five series and also cannot play in the AL Championship Series. He could be active for the World Series.
Wright told manager Alex Cora before Game 1 on Friday that his knee was bothering him.
BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez had to leave Saturday's game in the sixth inning with a sprained right ankle after tumbling over Toronto's Lourdes Gurriel Jr. attempting to cover first on a grounder.
Rodriguez, off to his third straight scoreless start, got to the bag at nearly the same time as Gurriel with one out in the inning and fell after his left leg hit the player's helmet as he was diving in headfirst when first baseman Blake Swihart's throw sailed wildly past the bag.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Brock Holt and Jackie Bradley Jr. each delivered a sacrifice fly in the 12th inning, and the Boston Red Sox limited the Baltimore Orioles to five hits in a 2-0 victory Monday night.
A pitching duel between Dylan Bundy and Steven Wright was ultimately decided long after both starters departed.
MIAMI (AP) — Hanley Ramirez hit a two-run double with two out in the 13th inning, and another night of stingy pitching helped the Boston Red Sox extend their winning streak to five games by beating the Miami Marlins 4-2 Tuesday.
Mookie Betts singled with one out in the 13th off Tayron Guerrero (0-1) and advanced on a groundout. Following an intentional walk to Andrew Benintendi, Ramirez lined his third extra-base hit of the season.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Mark Canha was sure Ryon Healy had ended the game in the ninth only to be robbed by Jackie Bradley Jr. Canha left no doubt about it one inning later.
Canha hit a leadoff homer in the 10th, one inning after Bradley's spectacular catch, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 on Friday night.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Boston Red Sox have activated reliever Koji Uehara from the disabled list.
Uehara had been out since July 20 with a strained pectoral muscle. The right-hander is 2-3 with a 4.50 ERA in 39 games.
He is expected to be available on Tuesday for Boston's second game of a three-game series against the San Diego Padres.
The Red Sox also recalled catcher Christian Vazquez and right-handers Heath Hembree and Noe Ramirez from Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays walked off with an extra-innings victory to overshadow another big accomplishment for David Ortiz.
Big Papi became the oldest player ever to hit 30 homers in a season, but the Rays came back from a three-run deficit to beat Boston 4-3 in 11 innings Wednesday night and prevent the Red Sox from taking sole possession of first place in the AL East.
