Malkin not punished for hit on Boychuk
By: DJ Bean

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin will not be suspended or fined for his hit Sunday on Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk. 

Malkin hit Boychuk from behind in the Bruins' zone, causing Boychuk's head to hit the glass above the boards. The ruling on the ice was boarding, which meant a minor penalty for Malkin. Boychuk was slow to get up, though he did stay in the game. 

The Bruins were fortunate to not have Boychuk injured on the play, as they also lost Adam McQuaid, Patrice Bergeron and Max Sauve during the game to various injuries.

Rivers: Stiemsma is playing hurt

LOS ANGELES -- Greg Stiemsma left Staples Center on Sunday in a walking boot. The center said it was a precautionary measure and that his right foot was sore. Celtics coach Doc Rivers acknowledged the injury before the Celtics played the Clippers on Monday.

"He’s not doing great but we don’t have another option right now," Rivers said. "The one thing I told him if it gets to a point where you just can’t play then you have to tell us. Other than that you have to play injured. We don’t have another body."

Rivers said he planned to limit Kevin Garnett's minutes against the Clippers after Garnett played 35 grueling minutes against Andrew Bynum.

"I will limit Kevin’s minutes tonight, I can tell you that," Rivers said. "I’ve got to get him back to the 30 number no matter what. Somehow we can get away with other guys on the floor tonight. I usually don’t do that on...

Source: Sox didn't make offer for Lannan

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- According to a major league source, the Red Sox have not made an offer to the Nationals for left-handed starter John Lannan. The revelation was in response to a report by Jim Bowden of ESPN and MLB Network Radio (via twitter) that the Sox' offer was "not close."

The Nats are in a position where they can trade the 27-year-old (who is slated to earn $5 million this year) after an offseason in which they acquired Edwin Jackson and Gio Gonzalez. However, to date, the Sox have not been active in their pursuit of the pitcher (who went 10-13 with a 3.70 ERA in 33 starts spanning 184 2/3 innings last year), as they are evaluating the group of Daniel Bard, Alfredo Aceves, Vicente Padilla, Andrew Miller, Felix Doubront and Aaron Cook to round out the last two spots of their rotation.

The Sox will monitor the Lannan market as...

Source: Red Sox will pursue Soler

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- According to a major league source, the Red Sox do plan to pursue Cuban outfielder Jorge Soler, a 20-year-old who is awaiting approval by Major League Baseball to become an international amateur free agent. Though still considered very raw, Soler has tremendous power, with the potential to hit 30-plus homers a season in the majors if he proves capable of fulfilling his potential.

That said, the Sox -- like most of the baseball industry -- expect that the Cubs are likely to win the bidding for Soler. In some ways, Soler is emerging as the subject of the last unrestricted bidding war surrounding an international amateur free agent.

Starting this July, teams will be subject to a $2.9 million cap in their total international signing bonuses for the 2012-13 signing period that will include penalties for every dollar spent over that amount, and restrictions on the signing of players in the next amateur signing period. As long as Soler...

49ers: Moss to catch passes from Harbaugh

Former Patriots receiver Randy Moss continues his tryout tour Monday, when he works out for the 49ers and coach Jim Harbaugh. Because of a league rule that prevents current players from working out for the team until the league year begins on Tuesday afternoon, Harbaugh will be the one throwing passes to Moss.

Tweeted 49ers CEO Jed York: Former Colt Pro Bowl QB throwing for #49ers [Monday]. Just to clarify, Coach Harbaugh is turning into Capt Comeback to throw to Randy Moss.

Harbaugh played quarterback for the Bears, Colts, Ravens and Chargers during his 14-year NFL career that ended in 2000.

Moss, 35, previously worked out for the Saints last week and reportedly did well despite taking off the 2011 season.
