Red Sox manager John Farrell just met the media and, predictably, he was asked about the substance which may or may not have appeared in Jon Lester’s glove. From the media tweets:

 

Fair enough. Not sure why rosin would appear sort of greenish and gelatinous, but there’s lots of things I don’t know.

On November 30 the Nationals acquired catcher Yan Gomes from the Indians acquired infielder Andruw Monasterio from the Nationals for Daniel Johnson, Jefry Rodriguez and a player to be named later. The player has now been named: Andruw Monasterio.

Monasterio, an had been acquired by the Nationals from the Cubs in August in the Daniel Murphy deal. Now the 21-year-old infielder is on his way to Cleveland. He hit .267/.363/.338 in high-A ball last season. He’s probably a future utilityman. But hey, at least he now has a name.

[Editor: that’s not how “player to be named” works]

Anyway. Enjoy your Monday.
