Dustin Pedroia, Brock Holt rehabbing in Portland this weekend

Dustin Pedroia and Brock Holt will be in Portland this weekend as part of their injury rehab assignments.

The duo will be on the Sea Dogs roster for their four-game series vs. Altoona. Joining them at Hadlock Field will be Red Sox reliever Brian Johnson, who is scheduled for a rehab start on Sunday.

Holt originally was placed on the injured list since on April 6 with a scratched cornea and suffered a setback later in the month with a right shoulder impingement. Pedroia went back on the IL in April with soreness in his surgically-repaired left knee.

While the Red Sox could use the infield depth, they're in no rush to get Pedroia or Holt back in the lineup with rookie Michael Chavis raking. The 23-year-old has 10 home runs through the first 29 games of his career.

Chris Sale will visit with Dr. James Andrews on Monday

Chris Sale will visit with Dr. James Andrews on Monday

Chris Sale is officially getting ready for a visit with Dr. James Andrews.

According to Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora, the team's ace will be heading down to Florida to meet with the renowned surgeon on Monday. At that point in time, Sale and Dr. Andrews will discuss options for treatment on his sore elbow.

"[Sale] just wants to make sure he has all the facts," Cora said of the visit, per Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe. "He wants to see where we’re at with it and all the opinions."

Sale, who is in the midst of a career-worst season that has seen him log a 6-11 record and 4.40 ERA. He was placed on the 10-day IL on Saturday with left elbow inflammation and the visit with Dr. Andrews has raised some concerns about the potential for Tommy John surgery. We'll know more about the situation after Sale's visit on Monday.

After losing Sale, Cora stated that the team has "got to keep going" without Sale in the rotation. They got off to a good start by beating the Baltimore Orioles in the past two contests, but the bigger test for them will be how they fare in the upcoming week against the Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres.

Rafael Devers is the first player to reach this milestone since Miguel Cabrera

Rafael Devers is the first player to reach this milestone since Miguel Cabrera

In the seventh inning of the Boston Red Sox' win over the Baltimore Orioles, Rafael Devers reached a milestone.

He crushed a two-run homer off Orioles reliever Shawn Armstrong that was 27th of the season. Here's a look at that blast via the Red Sox official Twitter.

However, the homer was only part of the story. On the play, Devers recorded his 100th and 101st RBIs of the season. In the process of doing so, he became the first player to record 100 RBIs during the 2019 MLB season. Additionally, he set a milestone by becoming the first player to total 100-plus RBIs and 100-plus runs in a single season at age 23 or less since Miguel Cabrera achieved that feat in 2005.

And via the Red Sox Notes Twitter account, Devers is only the second Red Sox player to reach this milestone, joining Ted Williams.

Any time a player is mentioned in conjunction with Williams and Cabrera, that is certainly a good thing. Devers has rapidly become one of the best, young hitters in baseball and given his youth and continued growth, there's no doubting that he can be a superstar hitter for the Red Sox. And in the future, he will likely continue to set records for the squad.

Over the course of his past five games, Devers has been red-hot for the Red Sox, batting .652 with 3 homers, 7 doubles, and 11 RBIs. He currently leads the MLB in hits, RBIs, and doubles. With the Red Sox fighting for their Wild Card life, they will be looking for Devers to continue this streak and help power their offense amid injuries to their starting rotation.
