Although the Blake Swihart/Christian Vazquez decision was controversial, to say the least, there's no denying the latter's defensive prowess. Three pitches from this weekend exemplify it. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

The Red Sox also sent Rusney Castillo down, which goes to show just how poorly they handled their early-season roster. (Evan Drellich; Boston Herald)

The shoulder injury to Pablo Sandoval was assumed to be essentially made up, but apparently his first MRI showed something potentially serious. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)

Is there any hope for Sandoval? (Matt Kory; BP Boston)

John Farrell has been as impressed as us with the 2016 version of Hanley Ramirez. (Ryan Hannable; WEEI)

Boston's lineup is benefitting from a hot Xander Bogaerts. (Scott Lauber; ESPN Boston)

There are some very encouraging early-season signs from David Price. (Jen McCaffrey; Masslive)
