Crawford singles, receives scare in Portland

PORTLAND, Maine -- Making his first rehab appearance with Double-A Portland, Carl Crawford (left elbow) finished his night going 1-for-2 with two walks. He flew out to left field and beat out a slow roller to second base for his hit.

Crawford, who also stole third and scored a run, saw a total of 22 pitches.

The outfielder received a scare in his second at-bat when he fouled a ball off his right knee, dropping to the ground and staying there for a few minutes. But after being tended to by the Sea Dogs medical staff, Crawford stayed in the game and showed no ill effects the rest of the way.

"It’s one of those things where you’ll know tomorrow how it feels. Right now it’s not as bad as it looked. It’s not too bad right now," said Crawford, who explained the ball hit off the top of his knee, then hitting his shin. "I just hoped I hadn’t broken it. I hit it so hard, at the time I was just hoping...

Daisuke to DL, Gomez up, Germano coming

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine told reporters in Oakland that right-hander Daisuke Matsuzaka would be placed on the disabled list after suffering a recurrence of the discomfort in his right trapezius muscle at the base of the neck. Matsuzaka allowed five runs while recording just three outs on Monday night, inflating his ERA after five starts to 6.65. He is 0-3 for the year.

With Matsuzaka heading to the DL at a time when Will Middlebrooks has been sidelined with a hamstring injury, the Red Sox will add a right-handed bat to their bench by calling up Mauro Gomez from Triple-A Pawtucket. Gomez was 0-for-2 in the majors this year, but he's been one of the top hitters in the Triple-A International League all year. The 27-year-old is hitting .311 with a .366 OBP, a .614 slugging mark, a .980 OPS and 19 homers in 72 games.

Meanwhile, an industry source confirmed that the Red Sox plan to call up Justin Germano on Wednesday. The right-hander had...

Red Sox release Bobby Jenks

The Red Sox announced via press release that they have reached a contract termination settlement with right-handed pitcher Bobby Jenks and have placed him on unconditional release waivers. Thus ends an ill-fated relationship that commenced when Jenks signed a two-year, $12 million deal with the Sox after the 2010 season.

The former White Sox closer threw just 15 2/3 innings for the Sox last year, going 2-2 with a 6.32 ERA and 17 strikeouts and 13 walks. He suffered a host of injuries, first to his forearm and then to his back, and ultimately, his 2011 season was ended when a pulmonary embolism was discovered, requiring blood thinners. Jenks ultimately required back surgery in the offseason once his medication permitted it, but there was an issue with the initial procedure that required a second surgery to be performed in January and that ensured that Jenks would be unavailable for much of the year.

Though he was not able to take part in baseball...

Report: C's 'reach agreement' with Terry

Yahoo's Marc Spears has the scoop that the Celtics have reached an agreement with free agent Jason Terry from the Mavericks for what would likely be the full mid-level exception. Spears notes the deal will be for three years. Signings can't be official until July 11 when the league completes its audit, so all agreements are verbal.

Terry will be 35 when the season starts, but he's been a durable and effective player throughout his 13-year career. He's missed just 16 games over the past five seasons and is a proven playoff performer.

Despite shooting 43 percent from the floor last season, Terry still averaged 15.1 points per page off the Mavericks' bench and he knocked down 38 percent of his 3-pointers. If the Celtics use the full mid-level exception -- starting at $5 million annually -- they would have to stay below the luxury tax "apron" of $74...

Celtics sign Sullinger, Melo, Joseph

Through a press release, the Celtics announced the signing of their three selections from the 2012 NBA draft: first-rounders Jared Sullinger (No. 21 overall pick) and Fab Melo (No. 22) and second-rounder Kris Joseph (No. 51). Terms of the deals were not disclosed.

From the release:

Sullinger, a 6-foot-9 forward, was taken with the 21st pick in the first round. The native of Columbus, OH was a consensus First Team All-American, Wooden Award finalist and First Team All-Big 10 Selection in each of his two seasons at Ohio State.  He also was named the 2011 Big Ten Freshman of the Year.  Sullinger posted the third-most points (1,282) over his first two seasons at Ohio State behind Jerry Lucas (1,381) and Michael Redd (1,361). Sullinger also earned National Freshman of the Year honors from the Sporting News and the Wayman Tisdale Award from the USBWA. He averaged 17.5 points and 9.2 rebounds this past season in helping the Buckeyes get to the...
