Red Sox pitcher Rock Porcello throws five innings Monday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello tossed five strikeouts over five innings Monday against the Cardinals before the rain came. He gave up two runs on six hits with one walk, leaving him to work on consistency with his pitches leading up to Opening Day, reports ESPN.com.
"I feel strong," he said. "My sequences, the way I’m thinking on the mound, is there. The consistency of the pitches isn't, again, where I want it to be. That's obviously why we're here in spring training. I've got to keep working on the consistency, but I like the sequences."
One thing he felt was improved on was his changeup.
"The changeup was a lot better today and that's the one pitch I was really working on between starts," Porcello said. "There are spots where everything is really good and working together and there are spots where it's a little inconsistent. Overall, I feel strong and healthy and ready to go."
Red Sox's Porcello wants to work on consistency in final spring starts
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/18/15) Red Sox starting pitcher Rick Porcello made his third spring start Wednesday against the Twins, allowing one run on three hits and two walks in four innings. He also had three strikeouts.
"Changeup was a lot better, that's one thing I was working on specifically," Porcello said. "A bit of a grind, good to work out of jam."
Porcello has a 2.70 ERA through three starts. He has eight strikeouts to three walks in 10 innings.
"Looking to be more efficient," Porcello said of his remaining spring starts. "The consistency is what I need to get better at. Keep taking steps forward."
Rick Porcello said he's had no contract discussions with Red Sox

|(3/8/15) Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello said he's had no contract discussions with the team during spring training, reports the Providence Journal.
The Red Sox acquired Porcello in a trade with the Tigers in December and he'll be a free agent after the season.
Red Sox SP Rick Porcello on Tuesday outing: 'My arm felt good'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/3/15) Red Sox starting pitcher Rick Porcello retired all six batters he faced Tuesday and threw all four of his pitches in his relief appearance, MLB.com reports.
"It felt good to get out there," said Porcello. "I was obviously just trying to work on the little things: Throw strikes and get ahead. Location wasn't quite where I wanted it, but for the first time out, my arm felt good and the ball was coming out of my hand well. That's the most important thing."
Manager John Farrell said he was pleased with Porcello's efficiency, location and aggression in the strike zone. Porcello indicated he treated the spring appearance no differently than a regular-season game.
"I'm not going to take anything for granted," Porcello said. "Baseball is baseball, and on any given day, you can go out there and get your butt whipped. First thing first is just getting the ball down and throwing strikes. For the most part, I felt pretty good about that today. There's a couple things mechanically I need to continue to iron out and just keep refining everything, but a good first day."
Porcello joined the Red Sox this offseason via trade. He went 15-13 with a 3.43 ERA and 129:41 K:BB ratio in 204 2/3 innings with the Tigers last season.
Rick Porcello already working out at spring training facility
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(2/5/15) New Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello, acquired in a December trade, is already working out at the team's spring training facility in Fort Myers, Fla. Pitchers and catchers don't report for more than two weeks.
Porcello can be a free agent after this season but that's not his focus, reports MLB.com.
"Just getting off to a good start and locking in and having a good year is what's important," Porcello said recently. "Obviously the money is a huge benefit of playing this game, but for me, the most important thing is to make sure that I play well. I don't care how much money you make. If you're not playing well, and you're a competitive person, then you're not happy."
Porcello went 15-13 with a 3.43 ERA for the Tigers last season. "At the age of 26 and coming off of a 15-win season, Porcello could be positioned to have a big year for a team that, at least on paper, lacks a true ace," the report said.
|2014 summary: Fantasy owners had been waiting for a Rick Porcello breakout for a few years, and it finally happened in his age-25 season. Porcello registered his first sub-3.50 ERA ever and his first sub-4.00 ERA in five years, but he didn't do it by missing more bats. Instead, Porcello tightened up his control and stranded more of his baserunners, resulting in a 3.43 ERA and 1.23 WHIP. He also pitched deeper into games, which allowed him to set career highs for innings pitched (204 2/3) and quality starts (21). Porcello will attempt to build on his progress with the Red Sox, to whom he was traded this offsesason.
Playing time status: Porcello has been durable over his six-year career, and now that he is more efficient, he has a chance to top 200 innings again in 2015 for the Red Sox.
2015 outlook: Last season, Porcello was a top 40 starter in points leagues, but a top 50 starter in Rotisserie leagues. Because innings and quality starts could be an important part of his value again this year, owners should expect a similar discrepancy in his value between formats. Either way, Porcello is an appropriate target in the middle-to-late rounds in standard mixed leagues.
