Kalish may miss start of season after surgery

Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington confirmed reports by multiple media outlets that Ryan Kalish would likely miss the start of the 2012 season after undergoing labrum surgery on his left shoulder on Nov. 8. Kalish told both the Boston Globe and Boston Herald that he would be sidelined due to the procedure, which was performed by Dr. Lewis Yocum in Los Angeles.

Cherington wrote in an email that he expected Kalish to be doing some work at designated hitter during spring training, expecting a return to the outfield for the 23-year-old early in the season.

The Red Sox initially expected that Kalish -- who injured his shoulder diving for a ball while playing for the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox on April 21 -- wouldn't require surgery on the shoulder. But he continued to experience symptoms heading into the offseason, it was decided the left-handed hitter would get the shoulder scoped.

Kalish's '11 season was limited to 24 games due to the...

Turnabout: Brady does practice with Pats

FOXBORO -- Despite an ESPN report to the contrary, Tom Brady was at practice on Thursday in the frigid cold on the upper grass fields as the Patriots continue preparations for the Bills Sunday afternoon in the regular season finale at Gillette Stadium. Brady was present as the team went through its pre-practice stretching exercises.

About two hours earlier, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Brady's injured left shoulder would keep him out of practice on Thursday. He added the injury was "not insignificant" but it was not a "long term" issue and the team expected him to start and play Sunday against the Bills. 

Schefter, moments later on his Twitter page, explained that Brady might be stretching so the team can list him as limited before reiterating his initial report that Brady is "not practicing" Thursday. 

Brady's absence on Wednesday was explained on the team's official participation report as...

Report: Brady (left shoulder) won't practice

FOXBORO -- After getting his left shoulder hit last Saturday in a win over the Dolphins, Tom Brady will miss practice again on Thursday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, who added the team still expects Brady to start and play against the Bills on Sunday.

CSNNE's Tom Curran reported Brady missed practice Wednesday to have X-rays to check for a separated shoulder, adding those X-rays were negative. The team is practicing in the blustery cold outstide on the upper practice fields Thursday as they continue preparations for the Bills on Sunday in the regular season finale. 

Brady's absence Wednesday was listed as "not injury related" on the team's official practice participation report, which also made no mention of his left shoulder injury. The team is only required to list injuries that will impact whether or not the player will be available to play in the upcoming game. Any secondary issue the team believes will not impact his...

Mashup: IRS sues Yankees owner for $670K

The Internal Revenue Service is suing Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner to recover $670,000 it paid to the family to settle a dispute over the family trust's 2001 and 2002 tax bills. George Steinbrenner agreed to a settlement in 2007, but the IRS claims his son missed the deadline to receive the refund when he waited until August 2009 to file the necessary paperwork.

The suit, filed in Tampa federal court, indicates the filing was 5 1/2 months too late.

Stated a Steinbrenner spokeswoman: "We are reviewing and have no comment."

Read more about that story and others -- including a report on Thunder teammates Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook having an altercation on the bench during Wednesday night's 98-95 road victory over the Grizzlies -- plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Thursday's Morning Mashup.
