bostonherald Saturday, July 23, 2016 11:16:00 PM EAT

John Farrell said : “Partly, in addition to repeating a swing that we’ve seen,” “When he first came to the big leagues, I thought he tried to hit for more power than maybe he was ready to. It created some holes in his swing. He’s closed some of those up. And personally, he’s shown more power than anticipated, from my perspective” External link

John Farrell said : “I think for the vast majority of his career he’s been so dominant and powerful, it’s been three pitches and out,” External link

bostonherald Saturday, July 23, 2016 11:16:00 PM EAT

John Farrell said : “He’s not stubborn, he’s very smart,” “He understands what his routine is and what has worked best. And he’s been open-minded to adjustments. Now, talking about adjustments and doing it on occasion is one thing. Being consistent with it is the constant pursuit” External link

John Farrell said : “You know, the one thing that Mike does, his work pregame keeps himself sharp,” “Of the three outfield positions, right field is clearly his best. That was the report even coming over from Cleveland. Makes a couple of nice plays, a running catch to end the inning and then a diving catch to lead off the eighth. Good bat-to-ball, athletic guy, a valuable skill set” External link

bostonherald Saturday, July 23, 2016 3:41:00 PM EAT

John Farrell said : “More than happy with (Holt) in left field,” “We don’t miss out with the versatility because we’ve got Michael Martinez here, so we’re covered in terms of versatility and being able to make in-game decisions or moves, depending on what’s needed. But the way that Brock has adapted to left field and the way he plays it here at Fenway particularly, in addition to the quality at-bats, it’s pretty remarkable that the days in which he’s in the starting lineup, it speaks volumes, the way we’ve played, the record that’s there. Now, that’s not just because of him, but there’s something to it” External link

bostonherald Saturday, July 23, 2016 3:41:00 PM EAT

John Farrell said : “Since he’s come back, he’s added much more depth (to his slider),” “He’s able to get to the back foot to some right-handers for some swing and miss. He was on the plate, three pitches, three quality pitches for strikes” External link

I’ll be candid: I don’t want to say it’s purgatory, but as far as baseball goes he’s in a difficult spot because of a four-day layoff over the break. We’ve played very good winning baseball. We’ve gotten starts deeper into ballgames where the bullpen has been rested and that’s where the decisions have been made” External link

bostonherald Thursday, July 21, 2016 1:30:00 AM EAT

John Farrell said : “There may be select spots where we might be factoring some other things in,” “The biggest thing is he stays out of the middle of the plate. He's got a breaking ball that's going to run in on some lefties' back foot. He's got a changeup he can throw in there. More than anything, he stays at the bottom of the zone. That's why the groundball rate is so high, regardless of if it's left-handed or right-handed” External link

I can’t tell you at this point how much time Koji will miss,” “Taz is soon to return to us to give us another quality arm that is a proven late-inning guy.

John Farrell said : “At this point, the way we’ve already gone through NL parks, he hasn’t been on the field defensively,” “I’d be surprised if we would change course, and give him those days as a little bit of recovery. It’s hard to take his bat out of the lineup, for obvious reasons, but he’d be available to pinch hit at a minimum” External link

John Farrell said : “It’s such a compact swing,” “He’s playing with a lot of confidence. He’s far surpassed the offensive productive to date that he’s given us. He’s come up in big spots, he’s had very good at-bats, deep counts. Going back to the Texas series he’s come up big for us. And he’s done a very good job of running the game behind the plate” External link

bostonherald Sunday, July 17, 2016 3:57:00 AM EAT

John Farrell said : “We're getting a little bit further away from his last start. He's going to pitch in multiple innings when those opportunities arise, even to the point with an off-day coming up, that we set up a sim game for him to get stretched back out. That's a definite possibility as we get through this weekend, and with the guys that are slated to start coming out after the off-day Monday". Farrell talked with Buchholz on Friday about his updated role. If Rodriguez grabs the bull by the horns in the rotation — or if an outside pitcher is brought in — whether Buchholz sticks with the Sox in the bullpen — in other words, whether he sticks with the Sox at all — is a looming question. Roster moves on the way. New starter Drew Pomeranz is to be activated Sunday, which will lead to the first of a few looming roster moves. After Monday’s off-day, Junichi Tazawa is expected to be activated from the disabled list. Then, at some point, Joe Kelly may make his way into the major league bullpen. "All that is to be under review,” External link

John Farrell said : “We had three pitchers to get through the two innings,” “We’re thin down there. We know that Koji has had limited success, if at all, coming in (the middle of) an inning. So if we get into a situation where Robbie Ross runs into a little bit of problems, it was the reverse to start with Koji, bring Robbie in if needed. And it also gave us the option to use Robbie if we lengthen it out in the ninth inning to stay away from Craig Kimbrel ). And that’s the way it turned out” External link

John Farrell said : “Much like it was when he first started to initiate some movement, he got into a pretty good stretch where he was making good gains on it,” “But as that intensity has picked up, he’s going through a phase now where he’s got to quiet some things down” External link

John Farrell said ( about Clay Buchholz ) : “You know, I’ll be honest with you, if we’re sitting in this situation today (and Buchholz pitched on Wednesday), you possibly are asking, ‘Why did you use Clay if the game turned the other way and not use your other guys?’” “He’s in a tough spot, I’ll be candid. I don’t want to say it’s purgatory, but as far as baseball goes he’s in a difficult spot because of a four-day layoff over the break. We’ve played very good winning baseball. We’ve gotten starts deeper into ball games where the bullpen has been rested and that’s where the decisions have been made” External link

John Farrell said : “He got some swing and miss from his fastball, I thought he threw a very good curveball particularly in the second and third innings. He threw a number of cutters in some fastball counts,” “But still, the overall command wasn’t what he’s typically going to show” External link

John Farrell said : “There may be select spots where we might be factoring some other things in,” “The biggest thing is he stays out of the middle of the plate. He's got a breaking ball that's going to run in on some lefties' back foot. He's got a changeup he can throw in there. More than anything, he stays at the bottom of the zone. That's why the groundball rate is so high, regardless of if it's left-handed or right-handed” External link

John Farrell said : “At this point, the way we’ve already gone through NL parks, he hasn’t been on the field defensively,” “I’d be surprised if we would change course, and give him those days as a little bit of recovery. It’s hard to take his bat out of the lineup, for obvious reasons, but he’d be available to pinch hit at a minimum” External link

John Farrell said : “It’s such a compact swing,” “He’s playing with a lot of confidence. He’s far surpassed the offensive productive to date that he’s given us. He’s come up in big spots, he’s had very good at-bats, deep counts. Going back to the Texas series he’s come up big for us. And he’s done a very good job of running the game behind the plate” External link

bostonherald Sunday, July 17, 2016 3:57:00 AM EAT

John Farrell said : “We're getting a little bit further away from his last start. He's going to pitch in multiple innings when those opportunities arise, even to the point with an off-day coming up, that we set up a sim game for him to get stretched back out. That's a definite possibility as we get through this weekend, and with the guys that are slated to start coming out after the off-day Monday". Farrell talked with Buchholz on Friday about his updated role. If Rodriguez grabs the bull by the horns in the rotation — or if an outside pitcher is brought in — whether Buchholz sticks with the Sox in the bullpen — in other words, whether he sticks with the Sox at all — is a looming question. Roster moves on the way. New starter Drew Pomeranz is to be activated Sunday, which will lead to the first of a few looming roster moves. After Monday’s off-day, Junichi Tazawa is expected to be activated from the disabled list. Then, at some point, Joe Kelly may make his way into the major league bullpen.

John Farrell said : “We had three pitchers to get through the two innings,” “We’re thin down there. We know that Koji has had limited success, if at all, coming in (the middle of) an inning. So if we get into a situation where Robbie Ross runs into a little bit of problems, it was the reverse to start with Koji, bring Robbie in if needed. And it also gave us the option to use Robbie if we lengthen it out in the ninth inning to stay away from Craig Kimbrel ). And that’s the way it turned out” External link
