Lowrie (shoulder) headed to DL, Sutton up

Jed Lowrie is headed to the 15-day disabled list with a hurt shoulder, according to manager Terry Francona. The Red Sox shortstop left Thursday night's game in Tampa Bay after striking out in the first inning and immediately grabbing his left shoulder. Francona called the results from an early Friday MRI "really pretty good" because he said the tests revealed no significant structural damage to the shoulder. Dr. Lewis Yocum will look at the MRI results to ensure that nothing is seriously wrong. Francona claimed that bruising in the back of the shoulder had led to weakness, so the only course of action was to "settle down a little bit" and then get Lowrie on a strength program.

Utility infielder Drew Sutton was recalled from Triple-A and will take Lowrie's spot on the 25-man roster. Marco Scutaro will start at short against the Brewers on Friday.

Scutaro starting at short vs. Brewers

One day after Red Sox shortstop Jed Lowrie felt as if his shoulder slipped out of joint, Marco Scutaro is in the lineup at shortstop and batting seventh against the Brewers and starter Shaun Marcum. Jason Varitek is also in the lineup, paired with right-hander John Lackey for just the second time this year, perhaps in deference to the fact that Varitek is 4-for-10 against Marcum, while Jarrod Saltalamacchia is 0-for-6.

Savard will be at rally, perhaps on Cup
By: DJ Bean

Bruins center Marc Savard, who suffered his second concussion in as many years this season and is dealing with post-concussion syndrome, will be at Saturday's rolling rally in celebration of the team's Stanley Cup victory, according to general manager Peter Chiarelli. 

Given that Savard played in only 25 games before a clean hit from former teammate Matt Hunwick ended his season, the two-time All-Star does not qualify to have his name on the Stanley Cup. A player must play in either at least 41 regular-season games or one Stanley Cup finals game to have his name engraved on the trophy. There is a petitioning process, however, and Chiarelli plans on petitioning to get Savard and defenseman Steven Kampfer, who just missed the cutoff by playing in 38 regular-season games, on the Cup. 

"I don’t know what the process is," Chiarelli admitted. "I’ve given it a little bit of thought. Certainly those two deserve to be on...

Horton was playing with separated shoulder
By: DJ Bean

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said Friday at TD Garden that even before being severely concussed on a headshot from Vancouver's Aaron Rome in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals, first-line winger Nathan Horton was playing hurt for the Bruins. Horton, who had three game-winning goals in the postseason, two of which clinched series, had been playing with a separated shoulder, according to the GM. 

"I know Nathan, before he was hurt with his concussion was actually hurt. He had a serious separated shoulder," Chiarelli said, adding that Horton was "hurt significantly." 

Horton had eight goals and nine assists for 17 points in the postseason, his first experience in the playoffs. 

Chiarelli added that he considered the B's lucky for their lack of injuries suffered by players. 

"I think we’ll only have one, maybe two, surgeries and we’ll get that out there when I get all the...

Mashup: Pirates catcher's wife attacked

In a road rage incident in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, a man attacked the wife of Pirates catcher Chris Snyder while the player sat helplessly in the car, unable to get out after having back surgery a few days earlier. Subhash Arjanbhi Modhwadia, 44, followed the Snyders to a gas station after a near collision and attacked Carla Snyder after damaging the car, according to police. Modhwadia was subdued by a passerby and eventually taken to jail and held on $25,000 bail.
