Red Sox right-hander Jake Peavy is so awed by Koji Uehara's splitter that he sees no reason not to add it to his own arsenal.

In their first batch of spring cuts, the Red Sox sent several of their top prospects back to the Minor Leagues.

3/13/2014 | Farrell hopes to keep Workman in one role
One of the most valuable things about righty Brandon Workman is that he already proved last year he can be effective in the Major Leagues as a starter and a reliever. That said, manager John Farrell thinks it would be best if the organization could find one role for him this year, and keep him there.
3/13/2014 | Healthy Pedroia showing more pop at plate
Forget about the .105 batting average Dustin Pedroia took into Thursday's game against the Twins. The key is that he is fully recovered from the left thumb surgery he underwent Nov. 13.

3/10/2014 | Sizemore's comeback 'work in progress'

3/10/2014 | Lester lined up for fourth straight Opening Day start
Red Sox manager John Farrell confirmed Monday that the way his rotation is currently lined up could well be the way it stays when the season starts. Lefty ace Jon Lester, on the mound Monday for his Grapefruit League debut, is positioned perfectly to open the season March 31 at Camden Yards against the Orioles.
3/9/2014 | Brentz continues to sizzle at the plate
That big hitter at the top of Boston's spring leaderboard isn't David Ortiz. Bryce Brentz went into Sunday's game against Pittsburgh leading the Red Sox in hits (six), home runs (three) and RBIs (six), and he reached base three times in Boston's 4-1 win over the Pirates.
