Ellsbury shoulder likely dislocated

According to an industry source with knowledge of the situation, Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury likely suffered a dislocation or subluxation of his right shoulder on a play at second base in which Rays shortstop Reid Brignac's knee drove into his back. Ellsbury immediately grabbed for his right shoulder, and after being seen by a Red Sox team trainer, he was removed from the game, walking off the field with his right arm pinned to his chest. Third baseman Kevin Youkilis said that Ellsbury informed the team that "it felt like something moved a little bit."

Ellsbury's condition was announced by the Sox as a right shoulder injury, with Ellsbury being sent to Mass General for further testing. While the results of those tests have not yet been announced, the source confirmed that Ellsbury likely suffered a dislocation or subluxation in which the shoulder slipped out of the joint. With such a diagnosis, Ellsbury would be expected to be...

Celtics suffer brutal loss against Raptors

The Celtics jumped out to a nice lead against the Raptors on Friday night and everything seemed fine. Coach Doc Rivers was able to empty out his bench and play some of the deep reserves significant minutes. When the starters came back in, however, they left their games on the bench. They were outscored 27-11 in a brutal third quarter and couldn't close the gap in a terrible 84-79 loss. Toronto, who was starting two players recently called up from the D-League, shot just 35 percent and still got the win.

The Celtics were able to pull within a point with less than a minute remaining on two separate occasions, but DeMar DeRozan made all four of his free throw attempts and was 13-for-13 from the line. A Paul Pierce 3-pointer that could have tied the game was forced and missed badly. (Boston was 4-for-19 from 3-point range).

While the Celtics were getting beat, the Hawks crushed Orlando giving Atlanta a one-game lead in the race for homeport advantage...

Sox likely to call up Lin for Ellsbury

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, who was still awaiting word about the extent of the injury to outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury's shoulder, said that the team would call up an outfielder for Saturday's game in light of the loss (as of now, of undetermined length) of the runner-up in last year's AL MVP balloting.

"I'm preparing for someone to get here [Saturday]," Valentine said of the team's need to address its outfield depth.

That move is made easier by Valentine's suggestion after Friday's game that the Sox, with starter Josh Beckett having emerged healthy from his first two starts of the year, can afford to trim their pitching staff from 13 to 12 players. Even so, given the gruesome nature of Ellsbury's shoulder injury, it would come as little surprise if he landed on the disabled list.

Either way, the Sox will need outfield depth reinforcements. That being the case, it was noteworthy that the Sox scratched Che-Hsuan Lin just...

Beckett, Sox dominate Rays

In a game whose outcome was overshadowed in many respects by the right shoulder injury suffered by Jacoby Ellsbury, the Red Sox nonetheless enjoyed their most impressive contest of the 2012 season. Behind eight innings that were equally efficient and effective by starter Josh Beckett and a resurgent offense that produced eight runs, the Sox crushed the Rays, 12-2, in their Fenway Park home opener.

The Red Sox made Rays starter David Price work. The left-hander struggled to find the strike zone and the Sox didn't help him, in the process driving up his pitch count to 83 pitches in just three innings. The team strung together three runs on four hits and three walks against Price, with a three-run third inning that featured an Adrian Gonzalez RBI single to left, a Kevin Youkilis sac fly and a run-scoring, check-swing single by David Ortiz that rolled to third base. The team plated an insurance run the following inning when Kelly Shoppach doubled off of...
