Hitters around the league are changing their swings to elevate the ball more, and Red Sox pitchers are adjusting right back. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)

The Red Sox would love to have Christian Vazquez’ bat in the lineup as much as possible, but the catchers’ playing time should be based on the day’s starting pitcher. (Evan Drellich; CSN New England)

Not that there was a whole lot of doubt before, but Addison Reed is asserting himself as the premiere setup option in Boston’s bullpen. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

On Tuesday night, Rajai Davis showed off his speed and why the Red Sox went out and acquired him. (Chad Jennings; Boston Herald)

David Price is still trying to work his way back, and John Farrell isn’t ruling out the possibility of the lefty working out of the bullpen if/when he does return. (Ryan Hannable; WEEI)

Did the Red Sox mess up with their usage of Mitch Moreland earlier in the year? (Brett Cowett; BP Boston)
