The All-Star Game is the one event that makes me wonder how much time has passed. Not only does it ambush me every year, but it also locks me in a headlock and makes me chuckle. The summer has just begun! How on earth is it already time to consider the All-Star Game? And yet here we are, making assumptions about voting and involvement in the Home Run Derby. Regarding the latter, Rafael Devers was questioned if he would like to face Pete Alonso in the Derby, considering that the latter is nearly definitely going to attend. He expressed his disinterest in performing it in addition to saying no. (MassLive, Chris Cotillo)

Who else isn’t going to the Home Run Derby, do you know? Cooper Criswell—and not only because he throws a ball. Some were surprised to learn that Criswell had been optioned to AAA Worcester yesterday. Criswell hasn’t exactly been a revelation, but he’s been more than adequate as the sixth starter. However, he was demoted upon the return of reliever Chris Martin off the injured list. With a few days off ahead of them, the Red Sox will essentially be running a four-man rotation for the foreseeable future, with bullpen games thrown in from time to time. (MassLive, Chris Cotillo)

While the Red Sox batters deserve credit for turning around an attack that had occasionally faltered in recent weeks, Criswell should also receive some credit for stabilizing the back end of the rotation. The players say that the turnaround can be attributed to a more customized coaching style. (The Athletic’s Jen McCaffrey)

For the young males, the more customized approach seems to be very beneficial. Furthermore, Ceddanne Rafaela in particular has been blazing at the plate, in case you haven’t noticed. (WEEI, Rob Bradford)

Finally, the unfortunate news. The Red Sox’s top pitching prospect, Luis Perales, who was recently promoted to Portland and has been making significant progress lately, will formally have Tommy John surgery. TINSTAAPP does not die. (Boston Globe, Alex Speier)
