Ellsbury to rehab with Sox in Toronto

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, who has been working out at Athletes' Performance in Arizona since being diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of a rib in late-May, will join the Sox on Friday in Toronto as his rehab takes a step forward. Ellsbury is expected to work out with the Sox over the weekend, and then head to the Sox' extended spring training facility in Fort Myers to continue his rehab.

 

Meanwhile, Jed Lowrie -- who has been on the disabled list all season due to mononucleosis -- will play shortstop and third base for the Lowell Spinners on Thursday in his second rehab game. Lowrie served as the Spinners' DH on Monday in his first rehab game of the season.

Spain beats Germany to reach Cup final

Defender Carles Puyol's header past German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in the 73rd minute broke a scoreless tie and sent Spain to the World Cup Final. Spain will face the Netherlands on Sunday for the championship.

 

Goalie Iker Casillas handled Germany's two shots on goal. Since suffering a 1-0 loss to Switzerland in their first game of group play, Spain has won five straight matches, allowing just one goal in the process.

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.
