Edelman has 'itch' to get back on field

One of the biggest question marks entering Patriots training camp next week will be if wide receiver Julian Edelman will be on the field.

The wide out had offseason foot surgery after breaking his foot during the year, but did return for the postseason possibly doing more damage to the foot.

Edelman didn’t specifically address his foot, but sounded like a player who has been working hard in the offseason and is ready to get back out on the field with less than a week left in his offseason.

“You enjoy it, but you have the itch to get back,” Edelman said at Fenway Park Wednesday where he took batting practice, including hitting several homers over the Green...

Farrell on D&H: I'd use Koji same way again

Red Sox manager John Farrell visited with Dale & Holley with Thornton to provide an update on Koji Uehara and discuss other team news. To listen to the interview, go to the D&H audio on demand page.

Farrell said Uehara was going through an MRI on Wednesday afternoon and that the Red Sox will have a better read on his pectoral injury later in the day.

“Anytime you see a guy taken off the mound in the middle of a ballgame because of an injury, it’s never a positive thing,” Farrell said. “Hopefully it’s on the short end. The fact that he felt it on one pitch, this wasn’t a cumulative effect or something that’s been building over time.”

Farrell defended his decision to pitch Uehara in the ninth inning of Boston’...

Video: Edelman hits home run at Fenway Park

Here is proof Julian Edelman did hit a home run pic.twitter.com/5B1dfoLRQS

Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman was at Fenway Park on Wednesday and took batting practice on the field where he was able to hit several balls over the Green Monster.

“I don’t know, I couldn’t count,” Edelman said. “Six or seven. I think seven.”

Edelman was asked what he was thinking when looking out at the Monster from home plate.

“Taking it down,” he said. “I don’t know. It’s all fun. I played baseball growing up and to get to come out to a big league park and see these guys it puts in perspective how good these guys are. These guys are studs.”

He got advice from longtime friend, Red...

Farrell: Kelly 'getting closer' to rejoining Sox

The Red Sox are dealing with another injury to their bullpen.

On Wednesday, Koji Uehara was placed on the 15-day disabled listed with a right pectoral strain and right-hander Noe Ramirez was recalled for the sixth time this season.

Many wondered why it wasn’t Joe Kelly given his recent transition to the bullpen and throwing the ball well with Triple-A Pawtucket.

“He was (considered, but with [Junichi Tazawa], everything pointing to him being active for Friday, and while Joe is getting some quality work in that relief role, we didn’t want this to be a one or two day situation for him and be returned back to Pawtucket so that’s where we are with Joe,” manager John Farrell said. “Clearly, he’s throwing the ball well and without a specific date, that date whatever that is is getting closer.”

Kelly is currently with Pawtucket and hasn’t allowed a run in three innings over two...
