Red Sox-Rays Live: Allen Webster Makes 2014 Big League Debut For Boston

12:15 p.m.: Mike Napoli and Xander Bogaerts aren’t in Sunday’s starting lineup. Trade? Just kidding. Those guys aren’t going anywhere. But they’ll still sit out Sunday’s series finale — at least to start the game — as the Red Sox look to snap their four-game skid against right-hander Chris Archer. Daniel Nava will play left field against the righty. He’ll also bat...

Boston Red Sox: Allen Webster’s audition

Allen Webster Allen Webster is in the midst of what I would call a ‘tryout’ at the moment. Today against the Padres was his 3rd straight start for the Red Sox and a telling sign that John Farrell and company want to figure out what this kid is made of before they make a decision on whether to acquire another starting arm before the deadline. Webster was acquired in the widely...
