Roster roulette continues for Red Sox, who call up reliever Blaine Boyer from Triple-A to take spot vacated when lefty Brian Johnson was optioned after throwing a five-hit shutout Saturday. Sox will have to make another move after Sunday's game to open spot for David Price, who starts Monday in Chicago.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Nationals all-star Stephen Strasburg wasn't the only pitcher to impress with his Saturday start. The Red Sox's Brian Johnson, the Brewers' Chase Anderson and the Tigers' Buck Farmer also baffled hitters to pick up wins. Anderson took a no-hitter into the eighth inning vs. the Diamondbacks.

Red Sox 3, Mariners 0: Make it five wins in a row, the longest streak of the season for Boston. Eduardo Rodriguez tossed six scoreless innings to set the tone, while lights-out closer Craig Kimbrel put an exclamation point on a victory with another spotless ninth inning. Hanley Ramirez and Christian Vázquez had two hits apiece for the Red Sox.

Brock Holt will be shut down from baseball activity "for the foreseeable future," according to Red Sox manager John Farrell. Holt, who is dealing with vertigo and has a concussion history, was seen Thursday by specialist Micky Collins at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. With Holt's symptoms recurring, Red Sox will follow Collins' recommendations.

Red Sox continue to be cautious with Dustin Pedroia's left knee given wet conditions at Fenway. He's available to play tonight, but manager John Farrell prefers to stay away.

Is Boston breaking David Price?

Forget postseason pressure. The Red Sox need their lefty now. But if he's ready -- and pitches like an ace -- it could buy him a ticket out of town.

Real or not? Twenty strikeouts are boring

What does it say about all the strikeouts these days that a 20-strikeout game doesn't even seem all that interesting?

Red Sox P Price set for Monday start vs. CWS

Red Sox pitcher David Price will come off the disabled list and make his season debut Monday versus the White Sox in Chicago.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Red Sox clearly don't want David Price wasting bullets in Triple-A. Also, they believe a less-than-100% Price beats fill-in alternatives (Brian Johnson, Kyle Kendrick, Hector Velazquez). "Even if he gives us the 90 pitches in the first few outings," manager John Farrell said, "adding David Price to your rotation is always going to be a positive."
