Fan injured in fall off Fenway staircase

According to multiple reports, a fan was taken to the hospital with head and neck injuries after falling off a staircase and about 15 feet to the ground during Wednesday's Red Sox game. Witnesses said the man was unconscious and lying in a pool of blood, with cuts on his face, after he fell off the stairwell by the right field roof deck and landed face-first on the ground.

 

"He had blood on his eye. ... It looked like he was hit by a foul ball," one witness told WHDH-TV (Channel 5).

Ellsbury: 'I knew I broke it when it happened'

Speaking to WEEI.com after the Red Sox' 7-5 win over the Angels Wednesday night at Fenway Park, Jacoby Ellsbury said the rib that he broke when colliding with Texas pitcher Tommy Hunter Friday night was the same one he had dealt with since colliding with Adrian Beltre on April 11, residing just under the scapula bone in his back.

 

"Nothing new has been injured since the collision with Beltre," he noted. "Nothing."

 

The outfielder also said he knew immediately after colliding with Hunter that he had broken the rib, yet he chose to remain in the game, hitting three more times before being replaced in center field by Eric Patterson in the fourth inning.

 

"I knew I broke it when it happened," Ellsbury said. "I knew right away."

 

Ellsbury explained that even after he had come off the 15-day disabled list and resumed playing on Aug. 4 it felt...

Sox, Ibarra altered deal after failed physical

According to industry sources, Red Sox catcher Adalberto Ibarra signed a minor league deal for a bonus in line with a late-sandwich pick in the draft, between $700,000 and $800,000.

 

Ibarra had originally agreed to terms on a five-year major league deal with a guarantee of $3 million and incentives that could push the value of the deal to $4.3 million. But the catcher, who defected from Cuba last year, failed his physical in late June due to what was deemed a relatively minor issue, but significant enough that the Sox were not comfortable with a major league deal with the prior parameters.

 

Still, both sides wanted to work out a deal, resulting in the restructured contract. Ibarra, whose bat speed and plate discipline give him a chance to be an above-average offensive catcher, spent some time rehabbing in Fort Myers before playing a handful of games in the Rookie Level Gulf Coast League. He was then assigned to...

Nava time again: Red Sox rally for win

Daniel Nava took a 95 mile-per-hour fastball to the ribs with the bases loaded to break a 5-5 tie and then made a sensational diving grab of a sinking liner as the Red Sox erased a 5-2 deficit and beat the Los Angeles Angels, 7-5, Wednesday night at Fenway Park. Adrian Beltre belted a two-run homer in the fifth to draw the Red Sox to within one run before Boston took the lead with two runs in the seventh. 

 

Jonathan Papelbon struck out the side in a perfect ninth inning for his 30th save and his first save since blowing last Thursday's game against Toronto. Papelbon became the first pitcher in major league history to record at least 30 saves in his first five full big league seasons. John Lackey pitched seven innings for the win. 

 

The Red Sox managed to keep pace with the Tampa Bay Rays and the New York Yankees in the American League East and the American League wild card race. The Red Sox stand 5 1/2 games...

Cameron: 'I'm not dead. I'll be back'

Mike Cameron admitted Wednesday that the pain in his lower abdomen simply got to be too much. The Red Sox veteran center fielder announced in front of his locker Wednesday afternoon that he will have surgery in the next two weeks to repair an injury that's bothered him since opening day.

 

"Everyone knows I've been battling all year so it's time," the 37-year-old Cameron said of his upcoming surgery on his lower abdomen injury. "I can't go on the field and compete in this moment like I would like to, so it's time." 

 

Cameron, who played in just 48 games this season, went on the disabled list on Aug. 2 for a second and final time before announcing Wednesday that his season is over.

 

"I've always been kind of a fast healer," Cameron said. "Who knows? This is unchartered waters for me, but with a positive mind frame and who knows, with good old nature of medicine and...
