Manager John Farrell said there have been discussions "off and on" with Sandoval about the idea of giving up on switch-hitting, the Boston Globe reports. The third baseman is hitting .049 (2-for-41) batting right-handed this season.
Manager John Farrell said there's been "no decision here in this moment" when asked if Kelly will remain in the starting rotation following Monday's loss to the Twins, the Boston Globe reports. Kelly allowed seven runs in 1.2 innings, inflating his season ERA to 6.24, eighth highest in baseball.
Miley allowed one run on four hits and one walk while striking out two in eight innings in Sunday's win over the Angels. Sixty-one of his 97 pitches went for strikes and he threw first-pitch strikes to 16 of 28 batters.
Sandoval (knee) would have started Saturday had the Red Sox been facing a right-handed starter, the Boston Globe reports. "If there was a right-handed starter on the mound, he'd be in the lineup," manager John Farrell said. "But with [C.J.] Wilson going, it was a chance to give him another day down."
