  • Red Sox's Dominic Smith: On bench vs. lefty

    Smith is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    Smith started the first two games of the second half -- including Saturday against lefty Justin Wrobleski -- but the first baseman will sit Sunday as another lefty in James Paxton takes the mound. Romy Gonzalez will start at first base and bat leadoff in the series finale versus Boston.

  • Red Sox's Wilyer Abreu: Sitting versus southpaw

    Abreu is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    Southpaw James Paxton is pitching Sunday for Los Angeles, and the lefty-hitting Abreu finds himself on the bench for the second straight game. Jarren Duran, Ceddanne Rafaela and Tyler O'Neill will start from left to right in the outfield.

  • Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Scratched from Sunday's lineup

    Refsnyder was scratched from the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers for unspecified reasons, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    The 33-year-old was set to start in left field and bat leadoff against Los Angeles lefty James Paxton, but Refsnyder will now start the contest on the bench. The Red Sox have yet to provide an update, but it could be an injury situation since the outfielder is a lineup regular versus left-handed pitching.

  • Red Sox's Greg Weissert: Blown save, loss Saturday

    Weissert (2-2) allowed three runs (one earned) on three hits and two walks over 1.1 innings, picking up a blown save and the loss in extra innings to the Dodgers on Saturday.

    Weissert entered the 10th inning and gave up a pair of run-scoring hits that wiped out Boston's two-run lead. He was allowed to come back for the 11th and permitted a walk-off, bases-loaded single. It was the second consecutive game that the Red Sox's bullpen blew a late-game lead, as the team may be feeling the absences of Justin Slaten (elbow) and Chris Martin (elbow). Weissert entered the contest having allowed 12 runs (10 earned) on 12 hits and four walks over his previous 7.2 innings.

  • Red Sox's Kenley Jansen: Unable to hold lead

    Jansen allowed one run on two hits and a walk, picking up a blown save in Saturday's 7-6 extra-innings loss to the Dodgers.

    Jansen ceded a leadoff home run to former Red Sox and Dodgers teammate Enrique Hernandez in the bottom of the ninth, forcing extra frames. It was the second straight game that Boston's bullpen coughed up a late lead. The blown save was just the second of the season for Jansen, who has allowed two runs on four hits and two walks over his last three innings.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Slugs two go-ahead homers

    O'Neill went 2-for-5 with two homers and four RBI in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.

    O'Neill went hitless over his first three trips to the plate before launching a two-run, go-ahead home run in the seventh, along with another two-run shot in the 10th, which again put the Red Sox out in front. It marked the outfielder's second consecutive multi-hit game and his fifth overall in July. The long balls were also his first this month, where he's now batting .306 with seven RBI, nine runs and two stolen bases. On the downside, O'Neill has also struck out multiple times in four of his last five games.

  • Red Sox's Brayan Bello: Fans seven in quality start

    Bello did not factor into the decision in a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk over six innings while striking out seven.

    Bello struck out four of the first six batters he faced in the contest prior to surrendering a solo homer to Gavin Lux in the bottom of the second. The right-hander was then able to hold the Dodgers scoreless over the next three frames before allowing three of the first four batters to reach in the sixth, leading to two more runs coming across for Los Angeles. Bello had won each of his previous three starts coming in and now holds a 28:5 K:BB in July. He's also logged quality starts in back-to-back outings and in four of his last six overall.

  • Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Breather versus left-hander

    Yoshida will sit Saturday against the Dodgers, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    Yoshida will get a breather as Boston faces left-hander Justin Wrobleski. Tyler O'Neill will handle the designated hitter role while Romy Gonzalez enters the lineup at shortstop after some shuffling.

  • Red Sox's David Hamilton: Sitting versus southpaw

    Hamilton is not in the starting lineup Saturday versus the Dodgers, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

  • Red Sox's Brennan Bernardino: Takes loss Friday

    Bernardino (3-3) was the losing pitcher Friday, allowing three runs on two hits and a walk in a 4-1 loss to the Dodgers. He did not record an out.

    Boston's bullpen wasted a quality start by Nick Pivetta, who authored six shutout innings. Bernardino, who entered the evening with a 1.69 ERA, came on with one out, a runner on and Boston leading, 1-0. He allowed a ground-rule double, an intentional walk, then was touched for a grand slam by Freddie Freeman. It's been a good season for Bernardino, but the lefty has hit a rough patch, having allowed five runs, six hits and one walk over his last four outings (1.2 innings) while picking up two losses and two blown saves during that stretch.

  • Red Sox's Vaughn Grissom: Rehab starting Saturday

    Grissom (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Worcester on Saturday, MLB.com reports.

    If there are no setbacks, Grissom should be positioned to return at some point in August. He's missed a lot of time due to various leg injuries and may require close to the maximum 20 days allowed on a rehab assignment.

  • Red Sox's Triston Casas: Rehab assignment not imminent

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Friday that "it will be a while" before Casas (ribs) is able to begin a rehab assignment, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

    Reports on Casas' status heading into the All-Star break had been encouraging, but the first baseman still feels some pain in his side. He continues to hit off a tee and take soft toss. When asked whether Casas would be back before September, Cora said the team and players are focused on what they need to do in the present, and "to start thinking 12 days from now or 15 days from now, that's not the way we're doing it." Cora's comments put a damper on the talk of Casas returning from the 60-day injured list anytime soon.

  • Red Sox's Ceddanne Rafaela: Nabs steal Friday

    Rafaela went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Dodgers.

    Rafaela is up to 12 steals on the year, though he has just two over his last 21 contests. In that span, he's batting a modest .234 (18-for-77) while adding only one walk, so it's not like he's had a lot of opportunities to run. The shortstop is at a .247/.273/.419 slash line with 11 home runs, 52 RBI, 45 runs scored, 16 doubles and four triples across 94 games this season.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Racks up three hits in loss

    O'Neill went 3-for-4 in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Dodgers.

    The multi-hit night did not obscure O'Neill's baserunning blunder in the top of the eighth inning. With one out and Boston leading, 1-0, he was doubled off first base on a short fly to left field, apparently misjudging the depth of the batted ball. The play preceded the Dodgers' four-run outburst to take the lead in the bottom half of the frame. O'Neill went just 3-for-27 over his last seven games before the All-Star break, though that came after he began July with three multi-hit efforts. The outfielder is now at a .260/.353/.496 slash line with 16 home runs, 31 RBI, 49 runs scored, three stolen bases and 12 doubles over 69 contests this season. O'Neill continues to hold down a starting role in Boston's outfield, though he has just seven homers over his last 50 games after beginning the year with nine long balls in 19 contests.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Provides lone run in loss

    Duran went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Dodgers.

    Fresh off an MVP performance at the All-Star Game, Duran got his second half off to a hot start, and his fifth-inning homer was his first long ball since July 2. The outfielder is up to a .286/.344/.488 slash line with 11 homers, 42 RBI, 63 runs scored, 22 stolen bases, 11 doubles and a major-league-leading 10 triples through 96 games.
