|John Lackey could be on trading block |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(12:01 pm ET) Red Sox veteran right-hander John Lackey could be dealt at the deadline despite his status as one of their few reliable starters, WEEI.com is reporting. Lackey is also under team control through next season, which makes trade rumors that much more surprising.
Lackey has received attention from contenders due to his steady and solid contributions over the last two years. He has won two of his last three starts, giving up just five runs in 19 innings during that stretch, to raise his record to 11-7 and lower his ERA to 3.60. He is on pace to throw 210 innings this season, his highest total since joining the Red Sox in 2010.

(7/26/14) Red Sox pitcher John Lackey took a loss Saturday, giving up three runs (two earned) on eight hits and four walks in seven innings and striking out four in his team's 3-0 defeat against the Rays.
Lackey (11-7) has delivered three straight quality starts, but he's issued four walks or more twice during that stretch. He didn't walk more than two batters in an inning in any of his previous 11 starts. Even with recent control issues, Lackey owns a 3.60 ERA and 116:32 K:BB ratio in 137 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to square off with the Yankees Friday.
|John Lackey gets plenty of support in win Monday |

(7/21/14) Red Sox pitcher John Lackey cruised to a win Monday, giving up one earned run on just two hits and no walks in seven innings and striking out three in his team's 14-1 victory over the Blue Jays.
Lackey (11-6) gave up back-to-back doubles to lead off the third inning, but he was still ahead 6-1 after the second double and didn't allow a single baserunner over the remainder of the outing. Lackey appears to be back on track after an ugly three-game stretch during late June and early July, and he owns a 3.66 ERA and 112:28 K:BB ratio in 103 1/3 innings. He's set to take on the Rays Saturday.
|Red Sox announce rotation plans for start of second half |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/13/14) The Red Sox announced Clay Buchholz will be on the mound for the team's second-half opener Friday vs. Kansas City. He will be followed in the three-game series by Rubby De La Rosa and Jon Lester.
John Lackey will then open a series at Toronto July 21. He will be followed by Jake Peavy before the rotation resets.
It appears for the time being that Brandon Workman will remain in the minors. He was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket Wednesday in order to clear a roster spot for De La Rosa.
|John Lackey picks up a win Friday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/11/14) Red Sox pitcher John Lackey struggled with his control Friday against the Astros.
Despite the control issues, Lackey only gave up two runs. He went six innings, giving up four hits. Lackey issued five walks during the outing and struck out three. Lackey was cruising until the fourth, when he allowed an RBI single. After a scoreless fifth inning, Lackey gave up a solo home run to Chris Carter in the sixth.
With the win, Lackey moves to 10-6 on the year. His next start should come shortly after the All-Star break.
|John Lackey returned from a season lost to Tommy John surgery with one of the better campaigns of his career -- a 3.52 ERA and career-best 1.16 WHIP over 189 1/3 innings. Lackey struck out 161 batters, putting his K/9 (7.7) at its best rate since 2006. Lackey struggled as the season wore on -- he had a 4.35 ERA in the second half, after posting a 2.78 in the first, and he posted a 4.98 ERA in September -- but that had to be somewhat expected, as he hadn't pitched in the majors since 2011, and only had one season of 200 innings pitched since 2008. Heading into 2014, there's a good chance Lackey is able to repeat -- or, at least, come close to -- his 2013 success. His .281 BABIP was about league average, and most of his peripherals were relatively normal. There's always a chance his ratios will rise a bit, and he doesn't record a ton of strikeouts, which push his draft value down a few rounds. He can be drafted in the middle rounds of most formats.
