Alex Cora talked about the trade deadline prior to Wednesday’s game, and acknowledged that the team has had some conversations about improving this roster. (Christopher Smith; Masslive)

That said, he’s not sold they need to make a big splash. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald)

If they were to make a big splash, though, first base would seemingly be the place to do it. The Red Sox just have not been able to find production at that spot. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic)

Sean McAdam talks about Chris Sale’s great rehab outing in Portland, and what it could say about what the Red Sox may get down the stretch. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal)

Sale will make at least one more rehab start, though, likely again in Portland on Sunday. (Julian McWilliams; Boston Globe)

Kiké Hernández is not only the hottest hitter in the Red Sox lineup. He’s also the guy who keeps that whole clubhouse loose. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

Ian Cundall has some scouting updates on a few pitchers who have made strides this year. (Ian Cundall; Sox Prospects)

Ryan Brasier could theoretically be a sneaky option to bolster this bullpen, but his road back to the majors this year is still unclear. (Jenna Ciccotelli; NESN)
