DL stint possible for Andrew Bailey (thumb)

According to a major league source, Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey is dealing with right thumb soreness that could result in a season-opening stint on the disabled list. The Red Sox are still gathering information on the injury as they determine how to proceed with the pitcher. 

UPDATE: Bailey, who was in the Red Sox dugout during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins, will fly to Boston on Monday to have his thumb examined. The Red Sox, manager Bobby Valentine told reporters, do not know how the pitcher incurred the injury.

The right-hander has pitched in six Grapefruit League games this spring, most recently on March 25, allowing three runs in six innings while striking out seven and walking two. He most recently pitched in a competitive environment on March 28, logging 1 2/3 innings in a minor league game. At that time, Bailey told reporters he was "ready to roll" for the April 5 season opener in Detroit, but...

Red Sox option Lavarnway to Pawtucket

The Red Sox optioned catcher Ryan Lavarnway to Triple-A Pawtucket. The 24-year-old had a very strong spring, hitting .429 with a .488 OBP, .486 slugging mark and .974 OPS in 20 games (35 at-bats), but with both Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Kelly Shoppach on the big league roster, the Sox were in position to send Lavarnway back to Pawtucket to complete his minor league seasoning.

Last season, Lavarnway blasted 32 homers between Double-A and Triple-A, and he hit .231 with a .738 OPS and two homers in 17 games in the big leagues at the end of the season.

Doubront, Bard round out Sox rotation

After a month of spring training games to make their decision, the Red Sox informed Felix Doubront and Daniel Bard that they will be the team's fourth and fifth starters to open the season. Doubront will get the ball in the team's fourth game on April 9, with Bard claiming the fifth starter spot.

The Sox whittled a field of seven candidates at the start of spring -- Alfredo Aceves, Daniel Bard, Aaron Cook, Doubront, Andrew Miller, Vicente Padilla and Carlos Silva -- to four final candidates in Aceves, Bard, Cook and Doubront. However, none of those four candidates fell from contention, leading the Sox to use almost the entire Grapefruit League schedule to determine how to proceed.

"Usually they'll kind of separate themselves by now, which really hasn't happened," McClure told WEEI.com recently. "They'...

Kansas reaches final with late comeback

Kansas University will chase its second title in five years, as the Jayhawks erased a 13-point deficit Saturday night to claim a late 64-62 victory over Ohio State in the Final Four in New Orleans. The Jayhawks' comeback was the product of an impressively balanced offense, with forward Thomas Robinson leading the way with 19 points, guard Travis Relaford pouring in 15, guard Tyshawn Taylor producing 10 points and nine assists and guard Elijah Johnson scoring 13 and hauling in 10 rebounds. Meanwhile, 7-footer Jeff Withey set a Final Four record by blocking seven shots.

Ohio State dominated the first half, carrying as much as a 13-point lead before closing the first period with a 34-25 advantage. Kansas roared back in the second half, tying the score with just over 14 minutes remaining. From there, it was a back-and-forth game, with Ohio State claiming as much as a six-point lead but ultimately getting outscored by Kansas, 15-7, over the final 5:22. During...

Kentucky rolls to national final

For the first time since 1998, Kentucky is going to the national championship game. The Wildcats got the better of their in-state rivals, Louisville, 69-61, in the first game of Saturday's Final Four in New Orleans and will play the winner of Kansas-Ohio State on Monday night.

Kentucky controlled the game early and jumped out to a 22-12 lead, but the Cardinals stayed close despite shooting 34 percent thanks to 17 offensive rebounds. Down by seven points at the half, Louisville tied the game, 49-49 on a Peyton Siva 3-pointer with 9:12 left in the game, but the Wildcats held the Cardinals without a field goal for more than six minutes.

Louisville made one last run to close within five points with just over a minute to go, but Kentucky's Anthony Davis put an exclamation point on the victory with a one-handed alley-oop slam. Davis, who will almost certainly be the top pick in this summer's NBA draft, scored 18 points and had 14 rebounds and five...
