Tito: More tests to come on Matsuzaka

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said disabled pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka reported to Fenway Park Sunday morning feeling better but the team is waiting on more tests on the right forearm of the righthander before determining a next course of action. 

 

“He said he feels great, which is good," Francona said. "I’d rather him show up and have that. We certainly need to delve into it a little bit more but he actually feels pretty good. I think we’re cautiously optimistic about that but we’ll try to get more information.”

 

Matsuzaka was scratched before Saturday's scheduled start against Philadelphia after reporting tightness and soreness in his right forearm during his pre-game warmups.

Sox spent $1 to acquire Nava

A few years before Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava entered folk hero status by blasting the first big league pitch he saw for a grand slam, he toiled in obscurity in the independent Golden Baseball League. He was so obscure, in fact, that the Sox were able to acquire the rights to the outfielder after the 2007 season for just $1. For more on that story, click here.

Lowell back at first with Youkilis out

For the second time in three days, Mike Lowell will get the start at first base for the Red Sox on Sunday against the Phillies. Kevin Youkilis will sit for the second time in as many games, perhaps due to a recurrence of the back spasms that first forced him out of the game against the Indians on Thursday.

 

Lowell will bat sixth, while Adrian Beltre will bat cleanup against Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels. Switch-hitter Daniel Nava, after hitting a grand slam on the first pitch of his big league career, will be back in the lineup and playing left field.

Matsuzaka on his injury: No big deal

Despite being placed immediately on the 15-day disabled list with right forearm soreness, Daisuke Matsuzaka said after Saturday's game that he is not overly concerned about the injury that forced him to be scratched from Saturday's start against Philadelphia at Fenway Park. Matsuzaka said he did experience this before in his career but can't remember the last time it bothered him to the point where he had to miss a start. 

 

"I can't even remember when the last time was so I think that just goes to tell you I don't think this is a really big problem at all," Matsuzaka said.  

 

Matsuzaka said he did not feel any cramping or tightness while stretching and playing catch prior to heading out to his bullpen session prior to the game. He said he informed pitching coach John Farrell of the issue and the decision was made to shut him down.

Nava stars Red Sox beat up Phillies again

Daniel Nava became just the second player in modern recorded history to hit a grand slam on the first pitch he saw in the majors and J.D. Drew fell just a triple shy of the cycle as the Red Sox pounded the Phillies for the second straight game, 10-2, Saturday at Fenway Park.

 

Nava's history-making homer came off Philadelphia starter Joe Blanton (1-5) in the bottom of the second and capped a five-run uprising, which began with Drew's home run to right field. Nava was just the second player in Red Sox history to hit a grand slam in his first at-bat, joining Rip Repulski, who did it on May 10, 1960. Nava was called up when Jeremy Hermida went on the disabled list and ironically, Hermida is one of the four players in MLB history to hit a grand slam in his first big league at-bat. Kevin Kouzmanoff [2006] and Bill Duggleby [1898] are the other two. 

 

Manny Delcarmen (2-2) earned the win by throwing two scoreless innings in...

The Dana-Farber Genetics and Prevention Program offers advanced genetic tests to determine whether individuals are at risk for inherited forms of cancer. Dr. Garber says, “A visit to the Cancer Genetics and Prevention Clinic usually includes time with both a physician and a genetic counselor, both of whom have expertise in all forms of inherited cancer syndromes. We educate patients about cancer risk and its implications for them and their family members. Working with referring physicians, we design individualized programs to monitor for the earliest signs of cancer — diagnosing if it occurs, and, in many cases, preventing it from arising.”
