Angels scratch starter Pineiro

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Scheduled Angels starter Joel Pineiro was scratched moments before the start of Wednesday's game between the Red Sox and Halos, the finale of a three-game set. The right-hander suffered a left oblique strain while warming up. In his place, the Angels will send Scot Shields to the hill against the Sox. Shields has made just 15 career starts, none since 2003.

 

Shields is 0-3 with a 5.61 ERA for the Angels this year. His longest outing of the season was a 2 1/3 inning effort in relief. For his career numbers against the Red Sox, click here.

Martinez: 'I've had plenty of off-days'

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Red Sox catcher Victor Martinez had originally been scheduled to sit out of the series finale between the Sox and Angels, not only because he had missed the previous four weeks while recovering from a broken left thumb but also because it was a day game after a night game. But the catcher approached manager Terry Francona following Tuesday's victory and insisted that he was ready to play in his third straight game.

 

"When we were shaking hands, he grabbed me and said, 'I'm playing tomorrow,'" said Francona.

 

Martinez, who is 1-for-8 with a walk and two strikeouts since returning, said that he is eager to make up for lost time after his time on the disabled list.

 

"I feel good. I think I’ve had plenty of off-days," said Martinez. "It’s not fun to watch the game from the bench. Like I say, I just want to be part of it and I’m just...

Francona on D&H: In Theo we trust

Red Sox manager Terry Francona joined the Dale & Holley show Wednesday from Anaheim for his weekly chat. Francona said he trusts general manager Theo Epstein will do what he can to help the team before Saturday's trade deadline. "He's trying his best, just like we do," Francona said. "We'll see what happens. ... If it makes sense for the organization, I know Theo's going to try to do something."

 

Francona said he's focused only on the players he's coaching, not on possible additions. Asked about one such player, Daniel Bard, Francona said he is trying to be careful about how much he uses the young reliever. "We really watch the workload," he said. "Bard won't pitch today, [Jonathan Papelbon] won't pitch today. ... We want our good pitchers pitching a lot. But we don't want them pitching too much."

 

Francona said J.D. Drew came up to him about five minutes before Tuesday...
