Drew leaves game with hamstring strain

Red Sox outfielder J.D. Drew left Friday night's game against the Dodgers after making a running catch of a sinking line drive off the bat of Manny Ramirez to end the top of the third inning. The Red Sox said that Drew left the game due to a right hamstring strain.

 

Drew stepped to the plate once on Friday, lining a solo homer (his eighth of the season) just over the Green Monster in the bottom of the first. Including Friday, he has played in 65 of his team's 69 games this year.

 

Drew was replaced in the lineup by outfielder Darnell McDonald.

Ramirez gets mixed reaction in first at-bat

Stepping to the plate at Fenway Park for the first time since leaving the Red Sox at the 2008 trade deadline just after 7:30 p.m., Manny Ramirez led  off the second inning of the Red Sox' series opener with the Dodgers. The Dodgers designated hitter was greeted with a mixture of "boos" and cheers before lining out to center field on the first pitch he saw from Red Sox starter Felix Doubront. Ramirez had initially garnered more negative reaction upon coming out to the on-deck circle in the first inning. For more Red Sox news see the team page by clicking here.

Matsuzaka on track to return Thursday

Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka, who went on the disabled list just prior to the start of a game on June 12, will throw a three-inning simulated game against Red Sox hitters on Saturday. Matsuzaka's forearm strain was not considered serious, and so the Sox anticipate that, barring an unexpected setback, he will be able to return to the rotation on Thursday in Colorado against the Rockies.

 

"He can probably be in line to pitch Thursday," said Sox manager Terry Francona. "We’ve been over what happened. I don’t know that health-wise, he really needed to go on the DL. ... I think he’s OK.”

Thomsen: Ainge could go too
By: DJ Bean

According to SI.com's Ian Thomsen, Celtics head coach Doc Rivers is "preparing himself" for the possibility of not returning next season, but may not be the only one. According to Thomsen, team president Danny Ainge could be an option to fill the void left by Steve Kerr as GM of the Phoenix Suns. Ainge, in addition to playing for and coaching the Suns, lived in Arizona with his family before he took the front office job with the Celtics in 2003. 

 

On the subject of Rivers, Thomsen writes that in a conversation between the two last week the Celtics coach got emotional when considering the thought of leaving Kevin Garnett. Asked if he would have a difficult time telling Garnett he would not be back, Rivers reacted as such, according to Thomsen:

 

"That's very difficult for me," said...
