Rosenthal: Bobby V devalued Youk early on

Fox Sports baseball analyst Ken Rosenthal joined Mut & Merloni on Friday to talk about his report regarding Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis. Rosenthal spoke to an unnamed rival executive who said that manager Bobby Valentine viewed Youkilis as a liability even before the season began and hoped to cut ties with the third baseman in spring training.

"That's what I wrote and that's what I heard -- and again, I don't know that that would be a shock, given that he is a declining player, given what happened with Valentine's comment [questioning Youkilis' desire]," Rosenthal said. "But this is a situation that, as I write, is going to play itself out. Because, most likely, with Middlebrooks slumping now, we're going to see Youkilis back on the field, and we're going to see what he can do....

Mashup: Canseco hitless in Worcester debut

Controversial former major league Jose Canseco made his debut with the Worcester Tornadoes of the independent Can-Am League, going 0-for-2 with two strikeouts and two walks in Thursday night's 9-2 loss to the Newark Bears in New Jersey.

"I'm in spring training mode out there," said Canseco, who participated in four of the team's seven preseason practices. "I'm trying to find my rhythm."

Canseco received a mix of cheers and boos when he was introduced as the cleanup hitter prior to the game. During batting practice, he hit one home run.

The 47-year-old is being paid $1,000 per month plus housing and use of a rental car, according to a team spokesman.

"It's not about the money, believe me," Canseco said.

Aviles: 'I definitely lost my cool' after call

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- After the Red Sox' 5-3 win over the Rays Thursday night, Mike Aviles explained the circumstances surrounding his first career ejection.

The Sox shortstop was thrown out from the game by home plate umpire Dan Bellino after arguing a called third strike, which ended the visitors' half of the seventh inning.

"Just frustrating, I guess," Aviles explained. "Really wasn’t questioning if it was a ball or a strike on the last one. It was more that he had called two balls very similar balls, so at that point, I had shut off that pitch. So when he called it a strike, he gave me the hook a little quick, prematurely. At that point, I definitely lost my cool and I apologize for that. Definitely a little frustrating."

Aviles wasn't alone in his analysis of Bellino's inconsistency, with numerous Red Sox batters expressing displeasure with the umpire's balls and strikes calls throughout the game.

Status of Ross, Ortiz in question for Saturday

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Cody Ross was still waiting for results of X-rays on his left foot after the Red Sox' 6-4 loss to the Phillies Friday night. The outfielder was forced to leave the game after fouling the ball off the foot in the eighth inning. 

Ross would stay in to face one more pitch against Philadelphia reliever Chad Qualls, swinging and missing at a third strike.

"I was going to finish the at-bat," he said. "The only way I'm coming out of that if I was bleeding and I can't see. I went down in the tunnel and tried to run. it wasn't happening. Had to come out."

Ross explained the ball hit on the top and side of his foot, below the shin guard he wears on the left leg.

"Generally I foul the ball off my shin, but this one got me perfect off the top of my foot," he said. "Hope for the best. Feels alright, so we'll see."

The availability of David Ortiz, who is scheduled to make a...

Daisuke allows five runs in Triple-A loss

Daisuke Matsuzaka recorded the longest outing of his minor league rehab assignment, delivering 6 2/3 innings in Durham for Triple-A Pawtucket, but the right-hander was once again touched for a pair of homers while allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits. He struck out three and walked none while throwing 64 of 95 pitches (67 percent) for strikes, and he was charged with the loss in Pawtucket's 5-0 defeat.

Matsuzaka gave up a homer to the first batter of the game he faced, Jesus Feliciano. He then settled to shut down Durham for the next few innings, allowing no runs and retiring 10 of 11 batters from the third through the start of the sixth innings. But after a one-out single and a catcher's interference call put runners on first and second with one out in the sixth, Matsuzaka hung a breaking ball that was crushed for a three-run homer by Henry Wrigley. The Bulls (the Triple-A affiliate of the Rays) tacked on another run in the pitcher's seventh...
