BOSTON - Just like that, the Boston Red Sox have a starting rotation again. Dennis Maruk Jersey .One day after acquiring a pair of starters, the Red Sox picked up a third, rebuilding their starting rotation this off-season almost as quickly as they took it apart during the summer.Hours after trading for Detroit right-hander Rick Porcello on Thursday, Boston signed righty Justin Masterson as a free agent. On Friday, the Red Sox acquired lefty Wade Miley from Arizona for righties Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster and infielder Raymel Flores.Were in a position where everyone knows we need to add quality starting pitching, general manager Ben Cherington told reporters on the teams second conference call of the night. Weve been able to acquire the three starters we have this week while really being able to maintain the top end of our young pitching.The Red Sox won the World Series in 2013 with a rotation that included Jon Lester, John Lackey, Jake Peavy and Felix Doubront. By midsummer it was obvious the team would not successfully defend its title in 14, and Cherington traded them all away to start planning for the future.Lester, who spent his entire career in the Red Sox organization until he was shipped to Oakland at the trading deadline, was courted to return as a free agent. But when the Chicago Cubs outbid Boston for the 31-year-old lefty, Cherington quickly executed a backup plan.Now, Masterson, Porcello and Miley will join holdover Clay Buchholz and one of Bostons young arms — perhaps Anthony Ranaudo or Brandon Workman — in a rotation that is so far lacking an ace.Masterson isnt sure they need one.I think we have an incredible staff, he said on the first call. Weve all had a bit of success, and I think ... well continue to do that.An all-star in 2012, Miley was the Diamondbacks opening day starter last season and went on to lead the team with 183 strikeouts and 201 1-3 innings pitched while posting an 8-12 record and 4.34 ERA. In four major league seasons, the 28-year-old lefty is 38-35 with a 4.34 ERA.The trade was a second salary-saving move for Arizona following the deal that sent catcher Miguel Montero to the Chicago Cubs. General manager Dave Stewart said he expects De La Rosa and Webster to be in the rotation. De La Rosa was 4-8 with a 4.43 ERA in 19 games for Boston last season. Webster was 5-3 with a 5.03 ERA in 11 starts for the Red Sox last year.Stewart told reporters in a conference call that the Diamondbacks were mulling whether to pursue high-priced pitchers James Shields and Max Scherzer.Masterson came up in the Red Sox system and spent part of two seasons in Boston before he was traded to Cleveland. He spent four more seasons there before he was sent to the St. Louis Cardinals this summer at the trading deadline.Although he has a 60-72 career record and a 4.24 ERA, Cherington said he was one of the best pitchers in the AL in 2011 and 2013. This season, he had a 5.88 ERA and spent time on the disabled list with right knee inflammation.Were very confident that whatever physical issues affected him in 2014 will be behind him, Cherington said.Cherington confirmed that Masterson, who bounced in and out of the bullpen during his first Boston stint, is slotted for the rotation this time around.But the pitcher said he knew that was something less than a guarantee.The assurance was that if I pitch the way Im supposed to, I will be a starter, he said. If Im not, the decision will be made. And I wont be happy anyway.NOTES: In a separate trade Friday, Boston obtained Zeke Spruill from the Diamondbacks for Myles Smith in a swap of right-handers. ... According to Major League Baseball, the eight All-Stars traded at the winter meetings were the most since at least 1998. That does not include Miley, whose deal wasnt announced until the meetings were over. Jaromir Jagr Jersey . Of course that doesnt mean hes ignoring it. Thats actually rather impossible given the behind-the-scenes access to the Toronto Maple Leafs the network is getting. Alexander Ovechkin Jersey . - While a fast-paced offence has become more of a fixture in recent years, the San Antonio Spurs can still grind out games when needed. . Third-place Madrid fell behind and settled for a 2-2 draw earlier at Osasuna in a match both sides finished with 10 men, and Barcelona didnt let the chance escape. Barcelona, still without the injured Lionel Messi, again turned to Neymar after his hat trick against Celtic in the Champions League on Wednesday to convert a penalty on the half-hour mark and restore the lead in the 68th after Villarreal levelled.( - The Brooklyn Nets will hit the road Saturday night against the Charlotte Hornets at Time Warner Cable Arena. The Nets ended a three-game losing streak to the Philadelphia 76ers with an 88-70 victory Friday at Barclays Center, as Mason Plumlee posted 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead the way. Alan Anderson and Joe Johnson scored 12 points apiece and Deron Williams handed out 10 assists for the Nets, who scored 25 of the 35 points in the fourth quarter and scored 25 points off 24 Philadelphia turnovers. Brooklyn had 16 steals on the night and a 47-37 advantage in rebounds. We were more active. Lots of deflections, lots of steals, Williams said. Charlotte had a two-game winning streak stopped with Fridays 113-107 double- overtime loss against the Memphis Grizzlies. Memphis is a tough place to playy and the Hornets werent intimidated in lasting two extra periods. T.J. Oshie Jersey. Kemba Walker scored a game-high 28 points for the Hornets, while Gary Neal added 25 points off the bench. Gerald Henderson scored 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting and his tip-in at the end of regulation forced overtime. The Grizzlies posted an 11-5 edge in the second OT to remain solid at home. We played hard, but theyre a really good team, Walker said. At the end of the day thats what matters. Al Jefferson posted 16 points and nine rebounds in defeat. The Hornets have lost 11 of their last 13 games, but are unbeaten in the previous two at Time Warner Cable Arena. Charlotte and Brooklyn will play the first of three meetings this season and are scheduled to meet twice in March. The two teams split four meetings a season ago.
