Valentine: Ross 'not as bad as we thought'

BALTIMORE -- Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said that outfielder Cody Ross "feels really good" Tuesday, noting that while it is likely that Ross will end up going on the disabled list, such a scenario is not definite. 

Ross was initially believed to be out for six to eight weeks with a broken bone in his left foot, but Valentine said it could be a much shorter time. 

"Worst case, it's not as bad as we thought yesterday," Valentine said. "Best case, it's a lot better. … I'd be excited if it was two weeks."

Cook's rehab delayed, awaits examination
By: DJ Bean

BALTIMORE -- Red Sox pitcher Aaron Cook recently had the stitches removed from his injured left knee, but he said Tuesday that "it's not healing quite right." 

Cook, who suffered a gash on the knee in a play at the plate in his lone start with the Sox on May 5 (2 2/3 innings pitched, eight hits, six earned runs), was scheduled to throw 50 pitches in the minors as part of his rehabilitation Tuesday, but the session was canceled. He noted that he won't have a schedule for the continuation of his rehab until he is examined in Boston following the team's current road trip.

Red Sox recall Podsednik from Pawtucket

BALTIMORE -- The Red Sox have recalled outfielder Scott Podsednik from Triple-A Pawtucket, and he is currently with the team in Baltimore as it prepares to face the Orioles on Tuesday night. The move means that outfielder Ryan Sweeney has presumably been placed on the disabled list.

Podsednik, who was acquired by the Red Sox in a trade with the Phillies earlier this month in exchange for cash considerations, last played in the majors with the Dodgers in the 2010 season. In 134 games that season between the Dodgers and the Royals, the veteran outfielder hit .297/.342/.382 with six homers, 61 RBI and 35 stolen bases. 

Now 36, Podsednik has split this season between Lehigh Valley while a member of the Phillies organization and Pawtucket since being acquired by the Sox. In 31 games for Pawtucket, Podsednik has hit .328/.310/.295 with one homer, 10 RBI and eight stolen bases. 

"I still feel like I have something left in the tank,...

Lineup: Gonzalez in right field for Sox

BALTIMORE -- Red Sox corner infielder Kevin Youkilis is back from a three-week stint on the disabled list and will play first base on Tuesday night, with Will Middlebrooks remaining in the major leagues and manning third base. In that configuration, Adrian Gonzalez will patrol right field. 

The decision to have both Youkilis and Middlebrooks on the roster gives the Sox a lineup deep with right-handers against Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz. The Sox, meanwhile, will feature left-hander Felix Doubront on the mound. The current members of the Orioles have just nine combined plate appearances against him, having gone a combined 3-for-9 against him. 


1. Mike Aviles, SS 

2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B 

3. David Ortiz, DH 

4. Adrian Gonzalez, RF 

5. Kevin Youkilis, 1B 

6. Will Middlebrooks, 3B 

7. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C 

8. Daniel Nava, LF

Kraft on Welker: 'We're happy he's back'

Patriots owner Robert Kraft told the NFL Network on Tuesday that "we’d like to see [Wes Welker] be a Patriot for life, but it takes two sides."

Speaking at the league meetings in Atlanta, Kraft seemed happy to have Welker in the fold -- the receiver signed his franchise tender last week, a one-year deal worth roughly $9.5 million -- but said certain steps need to be taken before both sides can agree on a long-tern deal for the receiver.

"We’re just happy he’s back in the system," Kraft said. "He’s a wonderful young man, and a special guy. I think both sides would like to do a deal, but it requires intelligence and putting our team first."

Kraft was asked about a story where the team might have been upset with Welker taking the negotiations public.

"Anyone can say whatever they want," Kraft said. "He’s done a great job for us. We’...
