Report: B's Thomas might sit out season
By: DJ Bean

According to Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com, Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas is considering not playing next season. Writes LeBrun:

A source told ESPN.com on Thursday that the 38-year-old Boston Bruins netminder was contemplating taking next season off. Which doesn’t mean he will, but it’s something he’s apparently raised.

For Thomas to take the year off certainly would be strange. He has one year remaining on his contract at a $5 million cap hit but only a $3 million salary. His no-trade clause expires on July 1, meaning the Bruins could trade the goalie without his consent.

The biggest reason a sabbatical at this point in his career would be perplexing: At 38 years old, Thomas isn't getting younger, and taking a season off would diminish his value.

Ross: Baseball activities to start next week

Cody Ross told WEEI.com Thursday that he is scheduled to remove his walking boot Monday, at which time he will begin baseball activities for the first time since suffering a nondisplaced fracture in the navicular bone of his left foot May 18.

Ross, who is on the 15-day disabled list, chipped off a piece of the bone less than a centimeter in diameter. The location of the bone was on the opposite side of the portion of the foot his foul ball impacted.

"It's on the other side of where the initial hit was," Ross said. "Underneath [the foot] chipped off. It was kind of a weird area.

"It seemed very good. That's why I was thinking I might have rolled my ankle and maybe stretched some ligaments or tendons or whatever. It ended up that bone chipped off and that was the pain I was feeling."

Ross said he has been "pretty much pain-free" in recent days.

The outfielder is hitting .271 with eight home runs...

Iglesias out at least a few more days

Red Sox shortstop prospect Jose Iglesias was in Boston Thursday for a medical evaluation of the ongoing lower back stiffness that has kept him out of action for Triple-A Pawtucket for the last six days. While a team source said that the condition is "not a significant issue," he is expected to miss a few more games. That, in turn, means that if the Sox do make a roster move to add infield depth at a time when Dustin Pedroia remains sidelined by his torn adductor muscle in his right thumb, Iglesias would not be available in the near term.

Though Iglesias was 4-for-22 in his most recent six games, he finished May with a line of .341/.364/.427/.790. In the process, he set new career highs in average, OBP, slugging and OPS for a single month in which he played at least 10 games.

Salt and pepper: Sox drop finale to Tigers

Quintin Berry had three hits, scored the go-ahead run and made a key running grab in front of the center-field wall as the Tigers salvaged the finale of the four-game series with a 7-3 win over the Red Sox Thursday night at Fenway. Jarrod Saltalamacchia drilled his 10th homer of the year and added an RBI single for the Red Sox, who won 3-of-4 in the series, stand at 26-25 and finished May with a 15-14 mark. 

Josh Beckett pitched seven innings, allowing 10 hits and four runs, walking one and striking out one to fall to 4-5 on the season.

The Red Sox staked Beckett to a two-run lead in the second when the red-hot Saltalamacchia drilled his 10th homer of the season to deep right-center, coming just a few feet from hitting the Jordan's Furniture billboard to the right of the yellow line. Saltalamacchia drove a 94 mph fastball from Max Scherzer (5-3) to the seats for his fifth homer in 11 games and his sixth in his last 15 games. Two outs later,...

Strong start for Daisuke in Pawtucket

Right-hander Daisuke Matsuzaka, back in the Pawtucket rotation after receiving a cortisone injection a little more than a week ago, delivered his second straight outing in which he gave up almost nothing. After allowing one hit in five shutout innings on Saturday, Matsuzaka allowed just two hits in 5 1/3 innings on Thursday. He did permit a solo homer to Lew Ford (who was traded by the Red Sox in 2000), but otherwise proved nearly flawless. He permitted just the one run, struck out four and walked none.

In his last two starts, Matsuzaka has allowed one run in 10 1/3 innings (0.87 ERA), with opponents hitting .091 against him. In 10 1/3 innings, he's struck out six and walked one. Overall, in seven rehab starts, Matsuzaka has a 3.53 ERA, 28 strikeouts and eight walks in 35 2/3 innings.
