Jones still looks like No. 12 pick

In his latest mock draft, Keith Law still has the Red Sox selecting high school shortstop Nolan Jones with the No. 12 overall pick. Jones has been high on Boston's radar for a while, but several other names could be in the mix. Law: Mock draft 2.0 (Insider)

Another clutch mark for David Ortiz

Ortiz put the Red Sox ahead, 9-8, with a top-of-the-ninth homer on Saturday -- the 20th go-ahead HR that he's hit in the ninth inning or later. That total ties Jason Giambi for the most homers of that type among players who have made their big league debuts over the past 50 years, Elias Sports Bureau notes.

Expect Price to turn things around

David Price has looked much better in his last three starts, but his 5.34 ERA on the season is still unsightly. Bad luck has had a lot to do with that, so Baseball Info Solutions doesn't think the Red Sox have much to be concerned about. Pitchers who will rebound (Insider)
