Holt (vertigo) out for 'foreseeable' future

Don’t expect to see Brock Holt on the field for quite some time.

Holt was placed on the disabled list April 21 with vertigo and even though his symptoms have gotten better, they haven’t completely gone away.

The Red Sox recalled Holt from his rehab assignment on Tuesday without activating him because he wasn’t going to meet the 20-day deadline players receive for rehab assignments.

He then had a mandatory five days before his rehab clock could reset, so the Red Sox sent him for a checkup with concussion specialist Dr. Micky Collins in Pittsburgh.

It was there the plan for Holt changed, as he will not play in games until his symptoms completely go away.

“Yeah, after the exam with Dr. Collins, taking a little bit of a change in course here,” manager John Farrell said. “Some additional maintenance work dealing with the symptoms that are there. We’re going to hold him out of playing for...

Thomas addresses hip injury, possible extension
By: WEEI

Isaiah Thomas met with reporters on Friday following the Celtics departure from the playoffs on Thursday night.

The All-Star guard gave updates on his health, as well as commenting on the state of his career.

After being sidelined with a hip injury following Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals, the seriousness of the injury was unclear.

Fortunately, it looks as though Thomas may not have to go under the knife.

“[Surgery is] not the No. 1 option right now but it could be once the swelling goes down,” Thomas told reporters. “They want to let it die down a little bit then take another MRI once everything is down and it’s back to normal. We’ll go from there. Hopefully I don’t have to have surgery but I know that is an option.”

Thomas said the injury was first...

Lineup: Pedroia (knee) out vs. Mariners

After leaving Thursday’s game against the Rangers as a precaution with a knee injury, Dustin Pedroia is out of the lineup Friday against the Mariners.

Manager John Farrell said it was mostly due to the wet conditions, but perhaps there’s something more to it keeping him out on Friday.

“He’s out of the lineup tonight,” Farrell said. “We took him out last night for precautionary reasons. I don’t see the surface is going to be a whole lot improved given the additional rain here tonight. I’ll be honest, he wanted to get in the lineup, but more precautionary I am holding him out. Not going to take any further risks, particularly with all the work he’s gone through on that knee. He’s available, but staying away from him.”

 

Josh Rutledge will get the start at second base and Deven Marrero at third against Seattle righty Yovani Gallardo. Andrew Benintendi will hit second with...

Belichick welcomes NCAA lax teams to Gillette

The NCAA lacrosse Final Four for both men’s and women’s will be at Gillette Stadium this weekend.

It’s been well-documented how much the sport means to Bill Belichick and his family with him playing it growing up as well as his three kids, and his daughter Amanda is now the head coach at Holy Cross.

Belichick took in a few men’s practices on the field Friday, but on Thursday he invited the BC women to Patriots practice and then at night spoke at the NCAA Division 1 banquet.

“It’ll be a great venue, exciting weekend, having both the men and women for the weekend, it’s going to be awesome,” Belichick said. “So congratulations on all the great success you have had to get here. For us, fortunately we have been to a lot of these games. We’ve come out on the good side on some and not on the good side on others. But just the experience, the competition of playing at this level and against...

Al Horford: 'I'm proud of our group'
By: WEEI

When the Celtics signed Al Horford to a max contract last summer, they knew the 6-foot-10 center would make an immediate impact, but few expected him to help lead the team to the Eastern Conference finals.

That’s exactly what he and this Celtics team did, and while they fell short of their ultimate goal, Horford views his first year in Boston as a success.

“I’m proud of our group,” Horford said to reporters following the Celtics’ 135-102 loss to Cleveland in Game 5 on Thursday night. “I felt like we grew as the year went on. Not the way that we wanted to finish, but I felt like we came a long way from the beginning of the year, and we came together, and that was fun to be a part of.”

Horford finished the regular season averaging 14 points, 6.8 rebounds and five assists per game, but perhaps his most...
