Miller (hamstring) out of running for rotation

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox left-hander Andrew Miller left Tuesday's game after just three pitches due to what the Red Sox described as a mild left hamstring strain. After he entered the game in relief in the top of the seventh inning, Miller signalled to the Red Sox dugout after throwing a 1-1 fastball for a called strike.

The 26-year-old appeared to be favoring his left leg as he followed through on his delivery from the set position. After some discussion with the Red Sox trainer and coaching staff, the left-hander left the game.

The injury was the second for Miller this spring, following a bout with elbow soreness that resulted in his going 12 days between appearances. Given that Miller has thrown just 3 1/3 Grapefruit League innings this spring (in which he has struck out six), this injury could put his availability for Opening Day in some jeopardy. At the least, said manager Bobby Valentine, Miller will not be considered for the rotation...

Padilla slowed with hamstring injury

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Fifth starter candidate Vicente Padilla suffered somewhat of a setback when he injured his hamstring while working out in the JetBlue Park weight room Monday. Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said the team was waiting to judge what kind of timetable the pitcher would be on in the coming days.

Padilla has pitched in four games, giving up five runs on 13 hits over 10 innings, striking out nine and walking one.

In other Red Sox injury news, reliever Franklin Morales is scheduled to make his spring training debut Wednesday when the Red Sox travel to Bradenton to take on the Pirates.

"I feel good," said Morales, who was dealing with shoulder weakness. "It was just precautionary. But now I feel healthy. All I need to do now is throw a couple of innings and I'll be ready to go."

Elway: Trading Tebow 'a possibility'
By: DJ Bean

 

Broncos Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway said at Peyton Manning's introductory press conference Tuesday that trading former starting quarterback Tim Tebow is "a possibility," and that he had told Tebow that in a phone conversation Monday. 

"Coach [John] Fox and I called Tim last night and talked to him about it," Elway said of the situation. "I think that having been in this game for as long as I have and seen as many friends as I've seen in this game that all of a sudden are there one day and gone another or retire and leave, that this is a tough business. I want to tell you that the toughest thing about this whole thing is Tim Tebow because of what I think of Tim Tebow.

"The things that he did last year was tremendous and helped turn this organization around from a 4-12 team to a playoff team and winning the division. I've got a great deal of respect for him as a person...

Report: Jets have interest in Green-Ellis

According to a report in the New York Post, the Jets have expressed interest in free agent running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

The Jets have yet to schedule a meeting with Green-Ellis, according to the Post report. Green-Ellis visited with Bengals earlier this week. The back rushed for 1,008 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2010 but put up just 667 yards (with 11 TDs) in 2011, also seeing his yards per carry average drop from 4.4 to 3.7.
