Sale dazzles in Red Sox win over Twins, 2-1

Chris Sale took the mound for the Red Sox on Wednesday vs the Twins, and he was outstanding.

The 28-year-old ace struck out seven Minnesota hitters in five scoreless innings while allowing only two hits. He did not issue a walk.

On the offensive side of things, Mookie Betts singled to drive in a run in the second inning and Mitch Moreland homered in the third. Other than that, it was a quiet day for the Boston bats.

The Red Sox beat the Twins by a score of 2-1, improving their spring record to 10-8.

Red Sox trade LHP Roenis Elias back to Mariners

The Boston Red Sox have traded left-hander Roenis Elias to the Seattle Mariners for future considerations.

The Red Sox announced the trade Monday.

Elias was 1-0 with a 1.23 ERA in Triple-A Pawtucket this season. In 55 major league appearances, he is 15-21 with a 4.20 ERA.

The 29-year-old native of Cuba was originally signed by Seattle as a free agent in 2011. He was sent to Boston four years later in a trade with Carson Smith for Wade Miley and Jonathan Aro.

The Red Sox will receive a yet-undetermined player or cash.
