Bosox broadcaster's son guilty of murder

WOBURN, Mass. — The son of longtime Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy pleaded guilty Tuesday to first-degree murder for fatally stabbing his girlfriend last year while the couple's 4-year-old daughter screamed and three neighbors tried to stop him.

Jared Remy, 35, was sentenced to a mandatory life without parole for killing Jennifer Martel, 27.

Remy admitted he killed Martel on Aug. 15 at their Waltham apartment and said he wanted to take responsibility for what he had done.

He described himself as "the bad apple" and called Martel "an angel," but also appeared to blame Martel.

"I would like you to know that I always told Jen she could leave, but don't threaten me with my daughter," he read from a hand-written statement. "That night, Jen had a knife in her hand and threatened me with my daughter, so I killed her."

His father, a former Red Sox second baseman who has been a color analyst on team broadcasts on the New England Sports Network since 1988, was not in court.

GOOD NEWS, BAD NEWS: Royals RHP Yordano Ventura, who left Monday's game with right elbow discomfort, is expected to miss only one start after an MRI exam showed no structural damage. But RHP Kyle Zimmer, one of Kansas City's top prospects, will be kept from even playing catch for at least six weeks because of a strained back muscle.

DARVISH OUT: Rangers RHP Yu Darvish was scratched from his scheduled start because of neck stiffness. Darvish, who opened the season on the disabled list because of neck pain, was scheduled for a precautionary MRI exam. Also, Rangers 1B Prince Fielder is recovering from neck surgery and is not expected to play again this season.

WRIGLEY UPGRADES: The Cubs released a revised plan for Wrigley Field's renovation that includes new signs, new seats and lights and a warning that the team would consider moving to another Chicago site if it is not allowed to "control our ballpark." Days earlier, the team said it would no longer seek the approval of nearby rooftop venue owners who threaten to sue over changes that would obstruct their views of the field. Based on the renderings, some signs would fully block views of the field from rooftops.

BRAVES: C Evan Gattis was a late scratch because of a strained right wrist.

DODGERS: SS Hanley Ramirez returned to the starting lineup after missing four games with a sore left calf.

INDIANS: C Carlos Santana went on the seven-day concussion disabled list, and 1B Nick Swisher went on the 15-day disabled list with a hyperextended left knee.

MARLINS: RH reliever Carter Capps is headed to the 15-day disabled list with a sprained pitching elbow.

METS: An MRI came back negative on Triple-A RHP Noah Syndergaard, the top prospect who was placed on the disabled list this week with elbow stiffness. Doctors recommended shoulder stretching exercises during his rehab.

REDS: RH reliever Carlos Marmol, released last week by the Marlins, agreed to a minor-league deal.

RED SOX: Manager John Farrell said he'll make a decision on Clay Buchholz's next start after the right-hander, who has a 7.02 ERA in 10 starts, throws in the bullpen today.

YANKEES: 1B Mark Teixeira was out of the lineup for a second straight game because of soreness in his surgically repaired right wrist. He said he plans to see his surgeon Thursday.
