Ortiz: 'I believe I'll be back' with Sox

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- David Ortiz, who told ESPN.com Monday that he would like a multi-year contract after his current deal, told WEEI.com prior to Tuesday's All-Star Game that he thinks he will return as a member of the Red Sox next season.

 

"I believe I'll be back [with the Red Sox]," said Ortiz, whose current deal includes a $12.5 million team option for 2011. "[Expletive] yeah. What should I believe? I'll tell you one thing, I'm not going to go the Angels. This is too far."

 

Ortiz won the Home Run Derby Monday night, and hits the second half hitting .263 with a .945 OPS and 18 home runs. For more coverage from the All-Star Game, see the Red Sox team page at weei.com/redsox.

Buchholz says rehab game likely

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz, currently on the disabled list due to a strained lower left hamstring, said that based on a conversation with Boston pitching coach John Farrell, he expects that he will make a minor league rehab start on Friday before returning to the major leagues.

 

"From the tone, I don't think [his next start] will be right at Fenway right off the bat. Either way, it will be good to get on the mound and throw to live hitters. ... When I talked to John, he said you're still going to throw on Friday, we're just going to figure out where it's at," said Buchholz. "I just want to throw and get back on the five-day routine after not throwing for three weeks."

 

Buchholz was unsure at which level he was most likely to pitch on Friday. The Triple-A PawSox are in Syracuse, while the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs are on the road in New Britain, and the Single-A Lowell...

Beltre says he'll play in All-Star Game

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Red Sox third baseman Adrian Beltre, said that he will be able to participate in tonight's All-Star Game. Asked whether he was set to play the first Midsummer Classic of his career, the 30-year-old said, "Yes. Yes."

 

On Monday, Yankees manager Joe Girardi had said that Beltre, who suffered a hamstring injury on Sunday, would be replaced on the American League All-Star team by Rangers third baseman Michael Young. But Beltre subsequently said that he was healthy enough to play. He is in uniform and on the field during batting practice.

'Not much talk' as Wheeler's date set
By: DJ Bean

Bruins winger Blake Wheeler's arbitration hearing has been set for July 27, agent Matt Keator told WEEI.com on Tuesday. Though the team has generally avoided such hearings at all costs, their current salary cap situation may prevent them from being able to give Wheeler a new deal prior to arbitration.

 

Asked by WEEI.com if any negotiations to re-up the 23-year-old have been complicated by the team's lack of cap space [the team has only $1,687,229 available according to CapGeek.com] Keator said there has been "not much talk yet" between the two parties, so Wheeler's camp is "not sure" of whether the Bruins are planning on making a roster move to accommodate a deal as he prepares to enter his third season. If the hearing takes place and the Bruins choose not to pay him what he is awarded in arbitration, Wheeler will become an unrestricted free agent.

 

The Boston Globe is reporting that center Gregory...
