Seguin: 'Nothing's settled in'
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Though the first day of on-ice activities for Bruins prospects at development camp featured 26 hopefuls on display, second overall pick Tyler Seguin attracted much of the attention. Those in attendance at Ristuccia arena frequently chanted his name and cheered or moaned depending on whether he scored in drills. 

 

“Usually if anyone’s talking about me it’s like Seguini or Seegin or something,” Seguin said with a laugh. “These guys, they have it right on point.”

 

Though he finally got to skate in a Bruins uniform after months of buildup, Seguin noted that he will not sit back and take it in until he has established himself as a presence in the NHL. 

 

"It feels nice, but nothing's settled in," Seguin said. "Everything will settle in when I'm a year or two into my career. That's when I can sit back, relax, and say, 'I have a spot on...

Shealy called up; Romero designated

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Though Kevin Youkilis is back in the lineup on Wednesday, one day after he left a game due to a right ankle injury, the Red Sox are set to select the contract of first baseman Ryan Shealy from Triple-A Pawtucket.

 

Shealy was hitting .246 with an .805 OPS and two homers in 18 games for the PawSox. He last played in the majors in 2008, hitting .301 with a .957 OPS and seven homers in 79 plate appearances for the Royals. He had been playing for the Triple-A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays through mid-June of this year, hitting .238 with an .866 OPS for Durham, before the Rays released him in June.

 

Infielder Niuman Romero -- who filled in for Youkilis after he left Tuesday's game and recorded the final out of the game with the tying run on third -- was designated for assignment by the Sox to make room for Shealy on both the 25-man and 40-man roster.

Bowden on bullpen move: 'I'm excited'

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Speaking on phone from Allentown, Penn., Michael Bowden said he is looking forward to the move to the bullpen with the Pawtucket Red Sox and sees it as his best chance to help the major league club down the road. Bowden was informed Tuesday that he will be going to the bullpen after turning a 2.35 ERA in five June starts, along with an outing in which he allowed just one hit and a run in 7 2/3 innings on July 2.

 

“The plan as far as I know is that I’m going to the bullpen. They haven’t given me any details about it and I haven’t wanted any details. Torey and Rich called me in the office and said they’re moving me to the bullpen, that I’m live tonight and that we’ll go from there. I was fully acceptive of it and I’m actually excited,” said Bowden via phone from Allentown, Penn. where the PawSox are playing the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.
