Chad Jennings has the story on Franchy Cordero being sent to Triple-A Worcester, hopefully giving him the chance to work on some things at the plate in order to come back up later this year and make an impact. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic)

To answer everybody’s question about the Cordero decision: No, Jarren Duran is not replacing him any time soon because instead he is quite busy impressing Team USA teammates as they go through Olympic qualifying. (Kyle Glaser; Baseball America)

Garrett Whitlock hit his first little snag of the season earlier in May, but he’s boucing back by making the necessary adjustments. (Julian McWilliams; Boston Globe)

Keith Law has released his first mock draft, and he has the Red Sox drafting Kumar Rocker, the righty from Vanderbilt who was projected to go number one overall just a few months ago. (Keith Law; The Athletic)
