DL stint possible for Middlebrooks

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine told reporters in Oakland that while third baseman Will Middlebrooks has shown signs of improvement in the injured hamstring that forced him out of Sunday's game, it was too early to rule out the possibility that the rookie would end up on the disabled list as a result of the injury. Valentine anticipated that, at a minimum, with Middlebrooks sidelined for "some days," it is likely that the Red Sox make a roster move to increase their bench options until the 23-year-old is ready to return to the majors.

"The latest on Will is that he feels better today than he did yesterday and better than he expected to be today. That’s the only news we have. That’s good. It’s not discolored, and that’s good. But it’s going to be some days," Valentine told reporters. "We won’t let the calendar dictate [his return]. We’ll just see how he feels. Maybe DL, maybe a few days,...

Ellsbury homers in GCL rehab game

Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury went 1-for-2 with a homer and a walk while playing six innings in center field for the Rookie Level GCL Red Sox. In three games in the GCL that started on Friday, Ellsbury is 2-for-6 with a double, homer, four walks and two strikeouts.

The 2011 American League runner-up in MVP voting has been out since suffering a subluxation of his right shoulder while sliding into second base on April 13. With Ellsbury out for all but seven games this year, the Red Sox' production from their center fielders has ranked among the worst in baseball, as the players at that position have combined to hit .253/.294/.337/.630 with four homers and four steals.

Middlebrooks out, Punto at third

One day after he suffered a hamstring injury that forced him out of Sunday's game, third baseman Will Middlebrooks is out of the lineup for the Red Sox as they start their three-game series in Oakland. In his place, the Sox will feature Nick Punto at third base against Athletics right-hander Jarrod Parker.

Parker will face off against Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka, who is still seeking his first win of 2012. He is one victory short of becoming the third Japanese pitcher to win 50 games.

Sullinger on M&M: 'I'm just ready to play'

Jared Sullinger joined the Mut & Merloni show Monday, four days after being selected by the Celtics with the 21st pick in the first round of the NBA draft, and said he's looking forward to living his dream of playing in the NBA.

Sullinger, who wore No. 51 in college, will wear No. 7 ("My mom's birthday month") with the Celtics.

The former Ohio State standout was regarded as a lottery pick until reports came out that he had some back issues that could be degenerative.

"Medical school is over," he said. "I [couldn't] care less what people say. I know how I'm feeling. I'm feeling great. I'm just ready to play."

Sullinger insisted he played with "no pain" his last couple of seasons with the Buckeyes, but that didn't stop prospective teams from pressing him about his back.

"Everybody was asking me about it," he said. "But I laughed it off, because if you looked at me in...
