Sources: Sox not trying to deal Daisuke

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- According to multiple major league sources, the Red Sox are not trying to move Daisuke Matsuzaka, and they have not shown any real interest in moving the right-hander. Matsuzaka was 9-6 with a 4.69 ERA in 25 starts last year, but he continues to be viewed as an important part of the team's starting rotation for 2011.

 

“if I sat here and told you I could figure him out, I’d be lying,” said Sox manager Terry Francona. “But if he’s pitching out of your four or five hole, you have a chance to have a really good staff.”

Mashup: Conductor chooses job over Jets

With the Jets in need of help at safety following the season-ending injury to Jim Leonhard, the team called Keith Fitzhugh, a player they cut in camp the past two years. Fitzhugh, however, decided to keep his job as a train conductor. The 24-year-old, who starred at Mississippi State, said he needs to be committed to the Norfolk Southern Railroad to help support his parents. Said Fitzhugh: "I know the Jets have a great opportunity of making the Super Bowl, and that's one dream that every child has is to play sports and make it to the Super Bowl or get to the World Series. But, there's a time when you have to think, 'Hey, you've only got one Mom and Dad.' They won't be here forever, and while they're here, you've got to cherish that time."

Upper-body injury sidelines B's Stuart

Mark Stuart played just four shifts in the first period of Tuesday night's win over the Sabres before suffering an "upper-body injury," according to Bruins coach Claude Julien. 

 

"He'll be evaluated and let you know [Wednesday]," Julien said. "We'll give you more [Wednesday] and he needs to be evaluated. We need to give you the right information."

 

The Bruins defenseman totaled three minutes, 56 seconds on the ice in the first period before being forced out of the game. The Bruins practice Wednesday in Wilmington before hosting the Islanders on Thursday night at Boston Garden. Julien did not speculate on Stuart's availability on Thursday or Saturday, when the Bruins host the Flyers.
