Sox add Patterson to roster, designate Castro

The Red Sox added second baseman/outfielder Eric Patterson on their major league roster. In order to clear a spot for him, the team designated left-hander Fabio Castro for assignment.

 

The Sox acquired Patterson from the Oakland A's in a trade on Saturday, dealing away left-hander Fabian Williamson for the 27-year-old. For more on that deal, click here.

 

Castro has now been called up twice by the Sox, but has yet to pitch in a game in the majors this year. He is 3-5 with a 6.65 ERA for Triple-A Pawtucket this year.

DL ruled out for Buchholz, not Martinez

Injured Red Sox players Dustin Pedroia, Clay Buchholz and Victor Martinez were examined on Monday.

 

Pedroia, already on the 15-day disabled list for a non-displaced fracture of the navicular bone in his left foot, had his diagnosis confirmed. He will not need surgery or the insertion of a pin into his foot. The Sox suggested that a normal timetable for return from such an injury is six weeks.

 

Buchholz' injury was described as a strained left hamstring. The Sox will not have him pitch in the coming week (in a normal five-man turn of the rotation, he would have been scheduled to pitch on Saturday), but the team does not anticipate that he will land on the disabled list after injuring himself while running the bases.

 

Martinez was diagnosed initially as having a fracture of the distal phalanx bone on the tip of his left thumb after a pair of foul balls clipped him. While the Sox were hoping that he...

No surgery or pin for Pedroia

According to a source familiar with the situation, after being re-evaluated Monday it was determined that Dustin Pedroia will not need surgery or a pin placed in his fractured left foot. It is estimated that the Red Sox second baseman, who injured his foot after fouling a ball off of his foot during Friday night's game in San Francisco, will be out 4-6 weeks.

Cuban prospect Ibarra takes Sox physical

Catcher Adalberto Ibarra, a Cuban defector with whom the Red Sox agreed in principle to a deal in April, is in Boston and took his physical on Monday. As long as the results do not reveal any physical issues, that would position him to sign officially with the Red Sox in the coming days and to be added to the 40-man roster, according to his agent, Edwin Mejia.

 

"He's taken [the physical]. We're waiting for the results. We're extremely optimistic that it's only a matter of time before he's with the Sox," said Mejia.

 

Ibarra and the Sox agreed in principle to a major league deal with a $1.5 million signing bonus, with the opportunity for the catcher to earn as much as $4.3 million over five years. He remained in the Dominican Republic over the last two months awaiting the processing of his visa application. That hurdle was cleared, positioning Ibarra to undergo his physical on Monday.

Still no Sox among All-Star leaders
By: DJ Bean

In the final checkpoint before All Star polls close Thursday, the Red Sox are once again far from represented among the leaders. Kevin Youkilis is fourth among AL first basemen and over one million votes behind leader Justin Morneau. Dustin Pedroia is now well behind Robinson Cano, as his 1,518,334 would have to be nearly doubled within the next three days to top the Yankees second baseman's 2,948,269 votes. Adrian Beltre is fourth among third basemen and hasn't cracked 900,000 votes. Victor Martinez' 896,413 is third among catchers. For more on the Red Sox, check the Full Count blog.
