Sox notes: Daisuke suffers 'intestinal turmoil'

CLEVELAND -- Daisuke Matsuzaka was forced to abandon his scheduled side session due to what Red Sox manager Terry Francona classified as 'intestinal turmoil.' The pitcher threw up after executing long toss, not getting a chance to begin his work in the bullpen. Matsuzaka was sent back to the team hotel with the hope that he will be able to throw a lighter side session Thursday.

 

"He got sick," Francona said. "I don't know how you say that in Japanese, but he puked."
 

In other Red Sox news:

 

- News about how Jacoby Ellsbury came through his examination in Los Angeles with Dr. Lewis Yocum won't be available until just prior to game-time, according Francona. Ellsbury was to have his injured ribs examined by Yocum.

 

- The Red Sox don't expect to see Jonathan Papelbon again until the team returns to Boston Friday. Papelbon is on bereavement leave, which can be minimum of three days and maximum of seven days.

 

- Francona touched on the lack of playing time by Mike Lowell, who has gotten two starts in the last 18 games.

 

 

"We've got a third baseman who is hitting everything in sight. A first baseman who might be one of the best hitters in the game. And our DH had a month that is unparalleled, so I guess the answer is yes," said Francona when asked about it was difficult to find Lowell playing time. "The object is to win and sometimes it's hard. Mikey hasn't played a lot lately, I certainly understand that but we've played good baseball. That has to be our first objective. I think he understands that. I don't think he likes the idea of his playing time, which I completely understand, but the object is to win."

 

The Red Sox manager admitted that earlier in the season he was going out of his way to find Lowell playing time, but saw that the inconsistency in playing time to others was affecting the team's overall effectiveness.

 

"I'm sure it is (tough). I completely understand that," Francona said. "I think earlier in the season there were times where I was trying to make things reach and I think they weren't reaching and it probably got in the way sometimes of guys swinging the bat better. You try and keep everybody productive and you end up hurting everybody's production, with the day's off … We tell the guys, sometimes it's not fair. But you have to do what you think is right."

 

- Francona said that Mike Cameron was getting the day off to not only continue his slow progression back into the Sox lineup, but also due to Cleveland starter Justin Masterson's trouble with left-handed hitters. The outfield consists of all lefty hitters Wednesday night, with Jeremy Hermida in left, Josh Reddick in center, and J.D. Drew in right.
