Position Breakdown

News
Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia did his best to get his team a win, but it was not enough as the Twins won 6-4, completing the three-game sweep. 

Pedroia belted two, two-run home runs off starter Phil Hughes, giving him seven longballs on the season. The home runs were his only hits on the afternoon, as he extended his current hitting streak to seven games.

"Pedey today is the one boost for us, [the guy] who comes up every day, shows up ready to compete," manager John Farrell said, per MLB.com.

During the streak, Pedroia's batting average has risen from .270 to its current .290 clip.

News
After giving up 7 runs in 1 2/3 innings on Monday, Joe Kelly met with Red Sox manager John Farrell and pitching coach Carl Willis on Tuesday morning to discuss a plan. 

"I contend and strongly believe that his curveball is a major weapon that's got to be used in his pitch mix," Farrell said, per the Boston Herald

Kelly did well in his start against Texas on May 21, when he went to his curve often. 

"He made a very tangible adjustment after three innings of work, when he went to his curveball more than his slider and slowed them down and had some quick and efficient innings. It's part of the education process of Joe as a pitcher, what makes him most effective," Farrell said.

News
Red Sox starter Rick Porcello struggled again in Wednesday's loss to the Twins. The right-hander went seven innings, allowing six runs on seven hits. He walked two and struck out two, giving up runs in the third, fourth and sixth innings. 

Porcello (4-4) gave up a two-run home run to Aaron Hicks in the fourth and a solo shot to Eddie Rosario in the sixth. Over his last two starts, Porcello has surrendered 13 runs on 14 hits and his ERA now sits at 5.37.

"I got beat by two walks and two home runs. That was it," said Porcello, per MLB.com. "The walks were big. Both of those walks ended up scoring, and then two pitches in the middle of the plate."

He'll look to get back on track in his next start, scheduled for Monday against these same Twins.

News
Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval is considering abandoning switch hitting and batting left-handed exclusively. 

Sandoval batted left-handed against a southpaw reliever on Monday, getting a single. It was his first time batting lefty against a left-handed since three at bats in 2011, and the first time he got a hit batting that way. 

Prior to that at bat, Sandoval was 2 for 41 against southpaws this year, with all those at bats coming right-handed. 

Red Sox manager John Farrell said that he "wouldn't be surprised" if Sandoval continues standing in on the left side against southpaws, per the Boston Herald.

News
Red Sox DH David Ortiz will be held of the starting lineup for "a couple of days" to work on his swing, manager John Farrell told WEEI on Thursday.

"Get some extra work done in the cage, try to get him going again before we get him back in the lineup," Farrell said, per WEEI. "I think he’s feeling under the weather as well. As you do with every player, you talk and try to keep up to date with each guy individually and this is a chance to hopefully have him get over that, as well as address some of the things and give him a little bit of a breather."

Earlier Thursday, Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington told MLB Network Radio that Ortiz would likely be held out of the lineup Thursday against the Rangers.

Ortiz, who hasn't started just five times in the first 47 games, has been struggling offensively for most of the season. He is mired in a 1-for-20 slump in his last five games and is batting just .171 in his last 18 games, dropping his average from .250 to .216.

Ortiz also has just six home runs and a .377 slugging percentage on the season.

After missing two straight games for the Red Sox, Brock Holt has returned to the starting lineup for Wednesday's afternoon game against the Twins. Holt was hit by a pitch on Sunday and did not play the next two games nursing an arm injury.

Rusney Castillo will be on the bench for Wednesday's game.
