Youkilis goes deep for Pawtucket

Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis went 1-for-4 with a homer in the second contest of his two-game rehab stint with Triple-A Pawtucket as he prepares to return from a disabled list stint for a back strain. Youkilis played all nine innings at third base, concluding his two minor league games with two hits in eight at-bats. He will rejoin the Sox in Boston on Thursday and then be activated prior to Friday's contest against the Rangers.

Celtics add scout to coaching staff

Team president Danny Ainge told reporters that the Celtics have added advance scout Jamie Young to their coaching staff, which should round out Doc Rivers' staff for the upcoming season.

Young's addition completes a makeover of the staff that saw lead assistant Lawrence Frank depart for Detroit to become the Pistons' head coach. Frank is expected to take Roy Rogers with him to the Pistons, who coached the Celtics' big men last season. The Celtics promoted Mike Longabardi earlier this summer after Frank left. Ainge said that roles had yet to be determined for the staff, which also includes holdovers Armond Hill and Kevin Eastman.

Drew's return delayed due to finger injury

Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein said before the Red Sox' game against the Yankees Wednesday night that J.D. Drew suffered a mild setback in his rehab outing Tuesday night, with the outfielder spraining his right, middle finger while playing for the PawSox.

"We don't think it's anything major but he's not going to play tonight. So we'll see how long that puts him back," Epstein said. "Right now, we're status quo. We'll see what happens when J.D.'s ready."

Drew went 3-for-3 in the Tuesday night game, and was potentially set to rejoin the Red Sox' lineup Thursday.

"I don't think it as anything major, but it's just kind of uncomfortable swinging the bat today when he tried it," Epstein explained. "So we said they have a day off tomorrow anyway, just come back here and we'll check it out and see where we go from there."

Drew has been on the 15-day disabled since July 26 with a left...

Theo: 'I'm really happy to be with Red Sox'

Theo Epstein is aware that his name has been linked in rumors regarding the Chicago Cubs and their opening for a general manager, but that was as far as he would go in addressing the topic on Wednesday in his first remarks on the subject.

"I'm really happy to be with the Red Sox," Epstein said. "I'm really happy to have the ability to come to work every day in a place likes this. Anybody associated with the Red Sox would have to be happy if you're working here and I am." 

Epstein knocked down a follow-up attempt, saying he wanted to keep the focus on the 2011 season. "To reiterate, I'm very happy here," he said. "My exclusive focus is with the Red Sox and doing everything we can to win a World Series. Beyond that, work really hard to make this the organization we want it to be."
