Pedroia out due to another thumb injury

Dustin Pedroia is out of the Red Sox' lineup in their series finale against the Athletics Wednesday afternoon after experiencing right thumb soreness following the Sox' Tuesday night loss. Pedroia said the injury -- which he believed occurred when diving for a ball Tuesday -- is in a different spot than the adductor muscle, which he had missed time with after discovering a tear.

"I was fine during the game and then after the game I was sore and then today, I'm pretty sore," Pedroia told reporters, adding he will be examined by doctors upon returning to Boston Thursday. "It's not in the area I first got hurt. I think when I dove for that ball in right field ... I don't know what happened. [Red Sox manager] Bobby [Valentine] wanted me to not play today because we have an off-day tomorrow. Hopefully everything [will be OK].

Pedroia, who didn't attempt to swing a bat Wednesday, said the injury is actually on the back-side of the thumb....

Mashup: Youk debuts in Chicago with homer

While the Red Sox look for help at third base with Will Middlebrooks injured, former Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis had a memorable debut at Chicago's U.S. Cellular Field Tuesday night. In his first home game as a member of the White Sox, Youkilis homered in his first at-bat to spark a 19-2 rout of Roy Oswalt and the Rangers.

White Sox fans chanted "Youk, Youk, Youk," for the player traded from Boston a week ago.

"It was awesome," Youkilis said. "People caught on real quick to the chants of 'Youk' when you get up there. It was cool just to feel at home again."

Youkilis was 6-for-26 in his first seven games (at Minnesota and New York) with Chicago before Tuesday, when he went 3-for-6 with the home run, four RBIs and three runs scored. That lifted his season batting average nine points to .242.

The White Sox are 43-37, two games ahead of the Indians for first place in the AL Central after the win...

A's over Ace: Aceves blows save in Sox loss

Alfredo Aceves gave up a pair of runs in the ninth inning, blowing his fourth save of the year and steering the Red Sox to a 3-2 walkoff loss at the hands of the Athletics.

Aceves gave up a leadoff single to A's first baseman Chris Carter, a one-out single on a soft liner by shortstop Chad Pennington to put runners on second and third, and then a single lined up the middle by former Red Sox prospect Brandon Moss to tie the game. Center fielder Ryan Kalish could not field Moss' single cleanly, and his boot put Pennington on third as the go-ahead run. Another former Sox, Coco Crisp, then sent his old club to defeat, as Crisp lifted a sac fly to Kalish in deep center.

The rally spoiled one of Jon Lester's best starts of the year. The left-hander was in line for the win after matching a season high with nine strikeouts and in one stretch retiring 12 straight and 17-of-18.

Though Lester worked mostly in the 89-92 mph range with his fastball, he...

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...
