    There is a strong chance one of those moves will be the return of Jaime Garcia, who could come off the disabled list and rejoin the Blue Jays ahead of Saturday's game. The Blue Jays are also considering recalling Chris Rowley from triple-A Buffalo to bolster the team's beleaguered bullpen.

    5 monthes ago - By NESN

    Rick Porcello just didn't have it Friday night at Fenway Park.
    The Boston Red Sox right-hander was tagged for eight runs in two-plus innings of work in Boston's eventual 13-7 loss. The loss snapped the Sox's 10-game winning streak.
