    Reports: Giants' Nunez, Mets' Cabrera among Red Sox 3B trade targets

    BOSTON — Dustin Pedroia’s error-less streak is at 114 games entering Wednesday, but that’s dwarfed by the above-and-beyond plays he’s made lately. In Tuesday’s 5-4, 15-inning win over the Blue Jays, he expertly fielded a grounder, tagged the runner retreating to first base and fired on to first for a double play. The play he made in Texas, fielding a carom off the wall and contorting his body to make a throw to first base where Carlos Gomez had made a turn toward second base, will go down as one of the best this season. Pedroia might be even better at the plate right now. With a seven-game hit streak and home runs in three of his last nine games, the second baseman appears to be healthier and

    First baseman Jeremy Vasquez is off to a solid start to his professional career. Vasquez, who turned 21 years old on Monday, is hitting .342 (27-for-79) with four homers and 22 RBI and has a .443 on-base percentage through 21 games with Kingsport. He was drafted in the 28th round last month out of Nova Southeastern University, which had won the 2016 Division II national title. "All my success so far in Kingsport is all because of the head coach at Nova -- just everything he's taught me this past year," Vasquez said, referring to Greg Brown, a former Astros scout who once signed J.D. Martinez. "Everything I've learned from those guys over there I've translated over here to Kingsport. I'm hitting
