Tito: Buchholz's injury 'not the simplest'

Terry Francona said prior to the Red Sox' Thursday game with the Royals that Clay Buchholz, who was placed on the disabled list June 19, has been dealing with not the "simplest muscle strain." Buchholz threw 30 pitches off a mound Monday, after which he estimated his health status as 70-80 percent. Since suffering the injury, the 26-year-old right-hander has seen multiple specialists and will go see another on Friday or Monday.

"He threw great [on Monday]. I mean he really did," said Francona, who dismissed the notion that Buchholz would be shut down for the season. "If you would have watched him pitch, he looked like he was in midseason form. But, it's not been the simplest muscle strain I've ever seen. We are serious. We want to have everything answered before we turn him loose. Because if we turn him loose, we don't want to turn back. And at the same time we want to take care of him. So that's kind of how I felt...

Belichick: Haynesworth deal 'not complete'

Bill Belichick spoke to the media on Thursday morning -- his first press conference of training camp -- and addressed the reported deal that has the Patriots dealing a 2013 fifth-round pick to the Redskins in exchange for Albert Haynesworth.

"I talked to [Redskins coach] Mike Shanahan last night and we are in the process with Haynesworth, but that's not complete yet, so I really can't comment on that until it's completed, if it is completed. We'll see how that goes," Belichick said.

Patriots release DT Stroud
By: Anonymous

On the same morning that the team reportedly acquired defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth from the Redskins, WEEI.com's Christopher Price has confirmed the Patriots have released Marcus Stroud. The Boston Herald was the first to report the story.

Stroud, a three-time All-Pro with the Jaguars, played the last two seasons for the Bills before being released in February. He then took a two-year with the Pats, but never took the field with the team.

Crawford out as Sox look for third straight

Carl Crawford is again out of the lineup for the Red Sox as the club looks to win its third straight over Kansas City on Thursday at Fenway Park. The left fielder was 1-of-11 in the first two games of the Royals series (including an 0-of-6 with four strikeouts Monday) before Terry Francona gave him the day off Wednesday.

“The last couple of nights he’s been jumping a little bit," Francona said before the game Wednesday.

Yamaico Navarro -- in for Marco Scutaro at shortstop Thursday -- started in place of Crawford in left field in Wednesday's 12-5 win over the Royals. Drew Sutton will start in LF on Thursday for the first-place Sox, who will have Josh Beckett on the mound. Beckett -- 9-3 with a 2.07 ERA -- will be opposed by Luke Hochevar (6-8, 5.29).

Lineup:

Ellsbury, CF

Pedroia, 2B

Gonzalez, 1B

Youkilis, 3B

Ortiz, DH

Reddick, RF

Sutton, LF

Celtics' pick Moore signs overseas

Celtics unsigned second-round draft pick E'Twaun Moore inked a one-year, $200,000 contract overseas with Italian club Benetton Treviso, according to Sportando.net.

Over the last week, Moore had reportedly come close to signing a deal with another Italian team, Cimberio Varese, in the same league (Lega Serie A), but talks broke down over an opt-out clause that would allow him to return to the Celtics when the NBA lockout comes to an end. Moore's agent Mark Bartlestein did negotiate that opt-out clause as part of the deal with Treviso, according to multiple reports.

The No. 55 selection in the 2011 NBA draft, Moore averaged 18.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.2 assists as a senior for the Purdue Boilermakers.
