Rick Porcello may benefit the most from Ryan Hanigan’s return — TORONTO - The Red Sox are sorting through options for struggling Rick Porcello, trying to decide when he starts next. But the best news for Porcello may be the return of catcher Ryan Hanigan to the roster. The two met on Thursday before the Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 12-6, and Hanigan feels progress was made.

Red Sox ride eight-run first past Blue Jays — TORONTO - The Red Sox pounded out 19 hits while routing the Toronto Blue Jays, 12-6, on Thursday night at Rogers Centre. The Red Sox sent 12 batters to the plate in a 27-minute first inning and scored eight runs against Matt Boyd, a 24-year-old lefthander making his second start in the majors.

Catcher Ryan Hanigan returns to lineup — TORONTO - The Red Sox activated catcher Ryan Hanigan off the 60-day disabled list, making room for him on the roster by optioning righthanded reliever Jonathan Aro to Pawtucket. Hanigan started against Toronto on Thursday and batting ninth. He popped to second in his first at bat.

Help is on the way for struggling Rick Porcello — TORONTO - The person who can fix Rick Porcello will be added to the Red Sox roster on Thursday. It's catcher Ryan Hanigan. Porcello is 4-9 with a 6.08 earned run average and hasn't won a game since the middle of May. Simply put, he is the worst starter in the American League.

Blue Jays rout Rick Porcello and Red Sox — TORONTO - The Red Sox traded for Rick Porcello and signed him to a long-term extension, convinced he would be an important part of their future. So far the present has been a disaster. Porcello was hit hard again on Wednesday afternoon, lasting only two innings in an 11-2 loss against the Toronto Blue Jays.

No excuse for Red Sox forgetting how many outs, Farrell says — TORONTO - Twice in a span of four games, a Red Sox outfielder has lost track of the number of outs and fired a ball to the infield after the inning was over. It happened on Sunday when Jackie Bradley Jr.

Dustin Pedroia on the mend for Red Sox — TORONTO - Hanley Ramirez is back in the Red Sox lineup on Wednesday, starting in left field against the Blue Jays in the Canada Day matinee. But catcher Ryan Hanigan is not. Weather-related travel delays resulted in Hanigan arriving at the Rogers Centre just after 11 a.m. after he got stuck in Philadelphia.

Game 80: Red Sox at Blue Jays — Here are the lineups: Game time: 1:07 p.m. Continue reading below TV/Radio: NESN / WEEI. Red Sox vs. Buehrle: Ortiz 26-83 (4 HR), Napoli 7-24, Hanigan 4-14, Bogaerts 3-11, Bradley 2-8, Ramirez 2-9, Holt 2-6, De Aza 1-3. Blue Jays vs.

Hanley Ramirez batting practice session draws a big crowd — TORONTO - Batting practice is usually a perfunctory part of the day for a major league team. But Tuesday's session at the Rogers Centre before the Red Sox played the Blue Jays held special appeal. Principal owner John Henry was on the field watching along with general manager Ben Cherington and manager John Farrell.

Toronto has some kind of scary lineup. They’re a good pitcher or two away from being really something.

Jul 02, 2015

If this lead holds, #RedSox will go 5-2 on the road trip and pick up 3 games in the standings. They’ll be six out at the halfway point.
