Padres not pursuing Lowrie

According to a major league source, the Padres “kicked the tires” regarding the availability of Red Sox infielder Jed Lowrie, but San Diego will not pursue him as a solution for their depleted infield. Lowrie has played in six games since returning from the disabled list with mono, hitting .250/.318/.400/.718 with 3 RBI in six games.

 

Multiple reports suggest that the Padres have acquired Miguel Tejada from the Orioles as a replacement for injured middle infielder David Eckstein.

Sox prospect Iglesias nearing return

Red Sox shortstop prospect Jose Iglesias, who has missed the last two months due an occult fracture of his right index finger, is nearing a return to games. The 20-year-old has started taking batting practice, and could start playing again by this weekend. The Sox have yet to determine whether he will return directly to Double-A Portland, or if he will instead start at a lower level of the minors.

 

Iglesias, signed last summer for a four-year, $8.25 million major league contract, was off to a strong start in his first full season of pro ball, hitting .306 with a .748 OPS for Double-A Portand.

Ricciardi: Yanks want 'knockout punch'
By: DJ Bean

ESPN baseball analyst J.P. Ricciardi joined The Big Show on Thursday and shed light on Saturday's MLB trade deadline. He noted that Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein has a couple of areas to address.

 

"I think he's definitely looking at relief pitching. I don't think there's any doubt about that," Ricciardi said. "I think they've been in on a lot of good guys. I think that the price tag is really high right now, so I think they're trying to address their relief pitching. I think they're trying to add one more bat, which may be in the outfield because their outfield is still banged up. I think they're getting everyday players back like [Victor] Martinez, and ultimately their lineup will start to get together a little bit more, but I think they're going to need one more bat, which I think they'll try to get.

 

"They might have as much luck on the waiver wire when guys start going through waivers --...

Pitino has testy exchanges in court

University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino finished his testimony in the Karen Cunagin Sypher extortion trial Thursday, and the former Celtics coach had multiple heated exchanges with the defense lawyer during two hours of questioning. Pitino said he didn't immediately report threatening phone calls from Sypher following their alleged affair because he didn't want his family to find out.
