Prior to Wednesday’s game in Detroit, we got some bad news from NESN as they released a statement from Jerry Remy that he will be taking some time off as he deals with yet another bout with cancer. These last few years have been tough on Remy, and we’re sending all of the positive thoughts his way. (Tom Westerholm; Boston.com)

Garrett Richards simply has not been pitching well, and there really haven’t been many signs of a turnaround. With Chris Sale’s return looming, it’s hard to see Richards lasting too much longer in this rotation. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal)

The Red Sox have shown some incredible mental toughness all year, but this is the time we need to see it the most. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

If you’ve been on the edge of your seat wondering when top pick Marcelo Mayer is going to make his professional debut, the wait is almost over. It’s expected he’ll be playing for the FCL squad this afternoon. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

Triston Casas isn’t with the club right now, but he’s turning heads with his performance over in Japan at the Olympics. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald)
