Jarrod Saltalamacchia is back in the major leagues with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Salty had been languishing at AAA Reno (where he batted a dismal .188) before today's call-up. Even more oddly-spelled Arizona catcher Tuffy Gosewisch went on the DL—opening up a spot for Salty. This, after The Fish decided that their oddly-named young backstop ( J.T. Realmuto) was a better bargain than the high-priced and under-performing Saltalamacchia. We wish Salty the best in his return to "The Show".

David Ortiz would not be in the Red Sox lineup for "a couple of days". The explanation was that the DH needed "to try to work some things out". Hello!
their City Manager is saying he has "no intention" of using public money to finance Lucchino's minor league empire. Hey, here's an idea: stay in Pawtucket!

"keeping an eye" on the trade market to try to improve what has been a dismal start to 2015. Of course, the most often mentioned target is LHP Cole Hamels of the Phillies. Nevertheless, according to Cherington, the team's first option is to look within to upgrade—the most recent case in point being the elevation of LHP Eduardo Rodriguez to start today's game in Texas. Cherington said the Red Sox will try to "get things better internally before...we can consider moves to supplement the team." Mired in last place and five games under .500, it's unclear who at AAA or AA (aside from a couple of pitchers and Jackie Bradley, Jr.) is going to provide a big enough jolt to make a real difference.
