Brutal outing for Bard in Pawtucket

Red Sox pitcher Daniel Bard had perhaps his worst outing since being sent back down to Triple-A Pawtucket, retiring just one of the six batters he faced after coming into the game for the top of the seventh inning against Charlotte, the Triple-A affiliate of the White Sox. Bard permitted a leadoff single and steal, and after getting a fly out, walked one batter, hit another, then walked two more to force in a pair of runs. He threw just nine of 26 pitches for strikes.

After nine minor league appearances, Bard has a 7.15 ERA with 14 strikeouts and eight walks in 11 1/3 innings.

Lineup: Salty remains in cleanup spot

The Red Sox will look to build on Friday night’s 5-0 win when they take on Mariners rookie right-hander Erasmo Ramirez on Saturday night. The 22-year-old is 0-2 with a 4.18 ERA and will be making his fourth career start.

Sox manager Bobby Valentine will use the same lineup for a third straight game, having come off a victory in which his offense belted four home runs. The Red Sox will be looking for that same success behind Josh Beckett, who will make his return to the mound after being placed on the DL for shoulder inflammation. 

Here is the Red Sox' lineup:

Nava LF

Pedroia 2B

Ortiz DH

Saltalamacchia C

Gonzalez 1B

Middlebrooks 3B

Ross RF

Kalish CF

Aviles SS

Celtics make qualifying offer to Stiemsma

As expected, the Celtics made a qualifying offer to Greg Stiemsma worth just over $1 million dollars, ensuring that he will be a restricted free agent on July 1 and giving the team the right to match any offer he receives. Stiemsma could sign the offer or work out a longer-term contract with the team. If another team signs him to an offer sheet, the Celtics will have three days to match. 

The 26-year-old Stiemsma appeared in 55 games and emerged in the second half of the season as the Celtics' most reliable reserve big man, averaging 2.9 points and 3.2 rebounds per game, while blocking 85 shots. He battled a foot injury throughout the season and the playoffs that limited his effectiveness, but he ranked as one of the pleasant surprises for the C's last season.

Ellsbury doubles, walks in rehab game

Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, in his first game since suffering a shoulder subluxation on April 13, went 1-for-4 with a double, walk and strikeout in five plate appearances for the Rookie Level Gulf Coast League Red Sox, who were playing the Twins in Fort Myers. Ellsbury served as the designated hitter. Fellow rehabber Carl Crawford went 0-for-2 with a pair of walks and a strikeout in six innings while catching a few fly balls in left field.

With Friday's game, Ellsbury started the 20-day clock on his minor league rehab assignment, which -- barring further injury -- can run through July 18. Crawford has now played four games, going 2-for-11 with a double, three walks and two strikeouts. His rehab clock runs through July 12.

Millar: Youk still here if Tito was manager

Making his weekly appearance on the Mut and Merloni appearance Friday, with Mike Mutnansky and guest co-host Kirk Minihane, former Red Sox Kevin Millar surmised that if Terry Francona was still managing the Sox the timetable for the Kevin Youkilis might have been different.

"I think this all started back in spring training, and obviously the sound byte he did in the dugout after winning three straight games from the Rays," Millar said. "Listen, Bobby Valentine never managed Kevin Youkilis and to come out with that sound byte early in the season, it was a very odd sound byte and timing. The Red Sox just won three games. You know what, whether you believe it or not, when he was saying he wasn't playing with as much energy as in the past, that's a tough thing to swallow from the player's side. 

"I thought Kevin Youkilis actually handled the situation well. You've got to understand this guy has done a lot in a Red Sox uniform....
