Youkilis rehab assignment begins Wednesday

Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis will begin his rehab assignment on Wednesday with Triple-A Pawtucket. The 33-year-old will take three at-bats as designated hitter for the PawSox on Wednesday in North Carolina against the Durham Bulls.

"We're going to try to get him at least three at-bats as a DH. He looked really good taking his ground balls today –– moving around, bounce in his step," manager Bobby Valentine said. "So, he'll start tomorrow and get him enough –- whatever it's going to take to have him to say that he feels good. He'll good from DH to playing the field."

Youkilis has been out since April 28 with a back strain. He is hitting .219 with a .292 OBP, .344 slugging mark and .635 OPS in 18 games.

Doubront hit in head by fly ball

Red Sox left-handed pitcher Felix Doubront was hit in the head by a fly ball prior to Tuesday's game against the Mariners. The ball, hit by a fungo bat, struck the 24-year-old in the right side of the head, causing him to fall to the ground. 

"I'm fine," Doubront said after the incident. Following his fall, he got up under his own power and walked off the field. 

Doubront's next scheduled start is Thursday in Tampa. He has won his last two starts and is 3-1 on the season with a 4.46 ERA.

Welker signs franchise tender

One day after telling WEEI that he had "9 1/2 million" reasons not to miss any regular-season games because of his contract situation, Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker signed his franchise tender.

Welker tweeted the news at 1:31 p.m.: I signed my tender today. I love the game and I love my teammates! Hopefully doing the right thing gets the right results. #leapoffaith.

Welker, who was assigned the franchise tag in February, will now be operating on a one-year deal worth roughly $9.5 million. The 31-year-old, who joined New England prior to the start of the 2007 season, caught 122 passes for 1,569 yards last year.

Doc on D&C: 'Philly has outplayed us'

Doc Rivers made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show on Tuesday, the morning after the Celtics dropped Game 2 of their Eastern Conference second-round series, an 82-81 76ers win that evened the series at 1-1. Rivers was first asked about the inability to get more shots for Kevin Garnett, who attempted 20 shots in Game 1 (scoring 28 points) but only attempted 12 in Game 2.

"Maybe we weren't a smart or well-coached team last night," Rivers said. "We never really got into our sets, and that happens in games, you see it all the time. It took too long to get into it, it took to long to establish it.  I thought we overreacted to their traps." 

As for the illegal pick call on Garnett with 10 seconds left, Rivers still feels referee Mike Smith made an incorrect call but won't consider the foul when assessing blame for the loss.

"It's a tough call and I'm going to stop there," Rivers...
