Sutton starting after Scutaro scratched

Red Sox shortstop Marco Scutaro was a late scratch from Wednesday's game against the Padres due to what the team described as "illness," at a time when "intestinal turmoil" has been making the rounds in the Red Sox clubhouse. Scutaro was replaced in the lineup and at shortstop by Drew Sutton.

Scutaro is hitting .293 with a .756 OPS this year, and .375 with a .944 OPS in 11 games since coming off the disabled list in early June. Sutton is hitting .314 with an .829 OPS in 17 games.

Celtics expect J. O'Neal to return

When the Celtics' season ended, veteran center Jermaine O'Neal said that he would weigh several options, including his health, before making a decision on whether to return for the final season of his contract. President of basketball operations Danny Ainge said that he expects O'Neal to return.

"He has every intention of coming back," Ainge said. "I wouldn’t say, something could happen, that he won’t come back, but he has every desire to come back and play, and he didn’t like the way it finished this year. He doesn’t want to end his career on that kind of note. He wants to be a much bigger contributor next year."

Ainge also said that O'Neal decided not to have more surgery on his knee.

He also confirmed that Nenad Krstic has accepted an offer to play in Russia and won't be back with the team next season.

Ainge: 'Rondo's not 100 percent yet'

Celtics president Danny Ainge said that Rajon Rondo is "not 100 percent yet. He's probably about four weeks away from playing basketball at full speed, but he can do some training and conditioning right now." While Ainge and coach Doc Rivers addressed the media on the eve of the NBA draft, Rondo was running on a treadmill above the practice floor. He was not wearing any sort of a brace for his elbow that he dislocated in Game 3 of their playoff series with Miami.

Report: Celtics trading up for Vucevic?

USC center Nikola Vucevic has been steadily rising up the board leading into Thursday's NBA draft, and the Celtics have shown interest in trading up from No. 25 for the 7-foot European, according to a report in the Los Angeles Daily News.

"He's moved up drastically during his workouts," an anonymous NBA general manager told the paper. "A lot of teams like him now." The Knicks and Rockets join the Celtics as at least three teams who have shown interest in Vucevic, the report said.

Beckett's Saturday start still up in the air

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said his team is making contingency plans in case Josh Beckett still is ready to make his scheduled start Saturday in Pittsburgh.

Beckett was pushed back from his start Tuesday night due to what the team classified as "intestinal turmoil," and Francona described Wednesday as "a good old-fashioned case of the flu."

"He’s really sick. Doctors are trying to figure out," Francona said. "I have not seen him this morning, but he wasn’t good yesterday again. We’re going to have to play this by ear. There are some pitchers that, because of the off-day, we’re actually OK. There are some either-ors. [Andrew] Miller will throw a shorter side today, just in case. We don’t want to run him out there the first day he’s OK. Because we know him so well, we want him to have Day 2, Day 3, Day 4. We’ll see how he responds today and tomorrow.”
