Salty hospitalized with leg infection

What began as a routine check-up ended up in hospitalization for Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia as he is being treated at Massachusetts General for an infection to his lower right leg. Saltalamacchia, who was immediately placed on the 15-day disabled list, was admitted to the hospital and remained there Thursday, being treated with antibiotics while he and the team wait on test results to come back. 

 

"[Wednesday] his right lower leg was sore so we took him over to MGH to get him looked at," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. "We thought it was going to be a quick look-at and come back. An hour turned into two and then three. He wound getting back right about game-time. He's got an infection in his lower right leg and I believe they've eliminated MRSA [bacteria infection]. They're waiting on some of the blood tests to come back on the staph."

Report: Clemens to be indicted for perjury

The New York Times is reporting that Roger Clemens will be indicted as early as today on charges that he lied to Congress about his use of performance-enhancing drugs. Clemens told a Congressional committee in 2008 that he hadn’t used PEDs and that his ex-trainer Brian McNamee had made up such allegations. McNamee was forced to cooperate with federal authorities in order to escape steroid distribution charges.

Mashup: Damon's return to Bronx turns sour

Johnny Damon's return to Yankee Stadium as a Detroit Tiger this week turned ugly. In the ninth inning of Monday night's game, Yankee Brett Gardner slid into Tigers second baseman Carlos Guillen on a double play and sent Guillen to the disabled list. Wednesday night, Gardner was one of three players hit by a pitch, and Damon called Gardner's play "dirty" and accused the Yankees of throwing at Miguel Cabrera, which led to Tigers manager Jim Leyland's ejection. Read more about that story, plus check out which columnists are ripping Brett Favre for his latest comeback, at Thursday's Morning Mashup.
