    Ryan Brasier was progressing nicely from a calf injury that kept him from joining the Boston Red Sox bullpen this season, but suffered a setback last week.
    The pitcher was struck in the head by a line drive during a June 4 simulated game in Fort Myers. He was hospitalized with a concussion and later was released to recover at home.
    Brasier was close to a rehab assignment with Triple-A Worcester, but that obviously is on the back burner while he heals.
    Prior to Boston's season finale against the Houston Astros on Thursday night at Fenway Park, manager Alex Cora provided a...

    The jury very much remains out on whether Franchy Cordero can handle big league pitching.
    But hitting minor league arms? The Red Sox outfielder apparently has that covered.
    Cordero, acquired in the offseason Andrew Benintendi trade, was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on May 27 amid serious struggles at the plate. The 26-year-old hit just .179 with one homer and 37 strikeouts in 95 at-bats for Boston, including a 9-for-78 over his final 78 plate appearances. He also was having issues in the field, with some decent plays mixed in.
    However, since joining the WooSox, Cordero...
