Sox prospects make mark in Futures Game

KANSAS CITY -- Shortstop Xander Bogaerts went 1-for-4 with a single in the All-Star Futures Game, while High-A Salem Red Sox teammate Matt Barnes recorded the final two outs of the game on two pitches, as both took part in a midsummer showcase for the top talent in the minor leagues.

For his part, Bogaerts said that he fulfilled his goal in collecting a hit in the contest, delivering it in the third inning against top Mariners pitching prospect Danny Hultzen, staying on an 83 mph changeup away and delivering a soft liner to left for a single.

"I got a hit, so I'm pretty happy," said the 19-year-old, who served as designated hitter for the World team. "I'm excited to get one in a big game like this."

Barnes was the 10th and final pitcher for the U.S. team. He threw just two pitches, both 95 mph fastballs, eliciting one soft liner to shortstop by Padres catcher Ali Solis and then getting A's infielder Chih-Fang Pan to...

Bobby V: Yankees are 'catchable'

Despite a first half in which the Red Sox won just 43 of their first 85 games, falling 8 1/2 games behind the Yankees in the American League East, manager Bobby Valentine said before Sunday's series finale that New York is still in the club's sights in the second half.

“Anybody’s catchable," Valentine said. "We haven’t seen them for a long time. Last couple of nights, their offense is good. [They’re] veteran, healthy … but they’re catchable.”

Valentine did admit that in order for the Red Sox, or anyone else in the division for that matter, to keep pace, the Yankees would have to slip a little and come back to the pack. The Yankees entered Sunday's game with the best record in baseball at 51-33, good for a .607 winning percentage. 

“They’ll have to come back a little," Valentine added. "When you consider 20 percent of our games are against them, we could have a...

Crawford: Elbow will 'blow out on me'

Carl Crawford admitted Sunday that most likely he's going to eventually need Tommy John surgery on his ailing left elbow but said he is trying to play through pain to impress the team that is paying him $142 million over seven years. 

“Thought about it, but at this point if I can play, I think [the Red Sox] want me out on the field," Crawford said before Sunday's finale with Yankees. "I’m just trying to do everything I can to get back out on the field. Right now, I feel like if I couldn’t help the team I wouldn’t get out there.

“Probably at some point it’s going to blow out on me. It’s one of those things that is what it is.”

Still, the Red Sox have Crawford on track to make it back to playing sometime in the second half of the season. 

"Carl might play Thursday at Pawtucket, and he's feeling pretty good," Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said. ...

Buchholz to return Saturday against Rays

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz will make his return to the Red Sox rotation on Saturday in St. Petersburg against the Rays. Buchholz went on the disabled list on June 24 with a stomach illness that was later diagnosed as a gastrointestinal bleed. 

"Buchholz will be pitching the second game," manager Bobby Valentine said. "He looked the way we needed him to look for those 40 pitches. I'm glad he got his spikes wet in Triple-A and he's confident he'll be able to give us some length, the second game out [of the break], and so is the staff."

Buchholz threw 43 pitches on Sunday for Triple-A Pawtucket in 2 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing just one hit while striking out three and walking two. 

As for Jacoby Ellsbury, Valentine said the outfielder is closing in on making his return shortly after the All-Star break. 

"When he's ready, he'll be ready. It's probably getting pretty close," Valentine...

Bradley to have second shoulder surgery

Avery Bradley will have surgery on his right shoulder on Tuesday at New England Baptist Hospital and could miss the start of the season, the team told reporters in Orlando where the Celtics are preparing for the start of the Orlando summer league. Bradley had surgery on his left shoulder in June to repair an injury that forced him to miss the conference finals and part of their series with Philadelphia. The surgery is likely to keep Bradley out of training camp, although a firm return date is unknown. 

While Bradley recovers, the Celtics are in the market for another shooting guard and coach Doc Rivers met with free agent Courtney Lee in Orlando, according to numerous reports. The Rockets rescinded their qualifying offer on Lee making him an unrestricted free agent and the Celtics could try to arrange a sign-and-trade deal with the Rockets.
