Martinez to DL, Molina up with Sox

Red Sox catcher Victor Martinez will be placed on the 15-day disabled list prior to the start of Tuesday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Martinez experienced a slight displacement to the bone on the tip of his left thumb when he was hit by a pair of foul tips in his glove hand on Sunday against the Giants.

 

While the Sox had been holding out some hope that they might be able to avoid a DL stint for Martinez, the upcoming schedule represented a best case scenario for doing so. Thanks to two off days this week and the forthcoming All-Star break, Martinez will miss only 11 games.

 

With Martinez sidelined, catcher Gustavo Molina is at Fenway Park, up from Triple-A. The catcher was in the Red Sox bullpen on Tuesday afternoon to work with various pitchers for their side sessions.

Report: Brian Shaw 'likely' next Cavs coach

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that former Celtics guard Brian Shaw, now an assistant coach with the Lakers, is close to being named the next head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

 

The 44-year-old Shaw won three NBA titles with the Lakers as a player and two more during his five-year stint on Phil Jackson's coaching staff. This would be the first head-coaching job for Shaw, who played for the Celtics for parts of three seasons (1988-89, 1990-92) before being traded to Miami for Sherman Douglas.

New No. 19 Seguin unfazed by comparisons
By: DJ Bean

BOSTON -- As Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli and president Cam Neely introduced Tyler Seguin and Nathan Horton to the media, flashes went off at an incredible rate as Seguin -- the highest draft pick the Bruins have made since Joe Thornton -- held up the No. 19 jersey that hadn't been seen since Thornton left town.

 

Seguin had wanted No. 19 in Plymouth in the OHL as a tribute to his favorite player, Steve Yzerman, but the number was unavailable. With No. 9, the number he ended up taking in Plymouth, retired (Johnny Bucyk), he finally took Yzerman's number fully aware of the questions and comparisons it would lead to. 

 

"That's OK," Seguin said of the expectations that come with the number. "Obviously I still have to make the NHL club, but if you're going to compare me to guys like that, obviously I'd be thrilled."

 

Chiarelli spoke of his excitement with the offensive...
