BALTIMORE -- One day after he committed a game-changing throwing error that some teammates felt was influenced by the state of his injured rotator cuff, Marco Scutaro remains in the Red Sox lineup as the leadoff hitter and shortstop. Ryan Kalish, who had Tuesday off against left-hander Brian Matusz, will return to the lineup and bat ninth against Orioles starter Jake Arrieta.
Jon Lester, who is 12-0 with a 2.00 ERA in 15 career starts against the Orioles, will look to snap the Red Sox' three-game losing streak. For matchup information, click here. For complete team coverage, visit WEEI.com/redsox.
The Celtics have announced they have agreed to terms with free agent guard Deltone West have agreed to a contract. Terms of the deal are not yet known.
The 24th overall pick of the 2004 draft, West played three seasons for the Celtics before being shipped to Seattle as part of the Ray Allen deal. West spent half of the 2007-08 season with Seattle before being traded to the Cavaliers, where he spent two and a half seasons. He was dealt to the Timberwolves for a draft pick in July and was waived by the club a week later.
West will be suspended for the first 10 games of the 2010-11 season for pleading guilty to a gun charge.

Chad Ochocinco has never been the shy, retiring type, and what he says he has planned for the regular-season opener against the Patriots is no exception.
Ochocinco said Tuesday on Twitter that if he scores a touchdown against the Patriots on Sept. 12 at Gillette Stadium, he's going to take one of the muskets from the Minutemen — who traditionally stand in the end zone each game and fire their muskets after each New England touchdown — and fire it, "as they do when the [Patriots] score" he wrote.
Ochocinco has traditionally engaged in some offbeat end zone celebrations, including jumping into the stands at Lambeau Field, "proposing" to a cheerleader and giving CPR to the football after a touchdown.

Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich is back practicing as he tries to battle back from his broken foot, and it's possible the senior standout could see some action in Saturday afternoon's season-opener vs. Weber State at Alumni Stadium.
"He has decided he's going to push on with it," BC coach Frank Spaziani said Wednesday on the weekly ACC Football Coaches Teleconference. "He just started out there [practicing] Saturday for the first time, and Sunday a little bit. Of course, we were off Monday. Yesterday he was out there, did a little bit more. As you could imagine, not having played football in I don't know how many days … and coming back from the cancer and the broken bone, he's — rusty is not the right adjective — he's behind a little bit. But he's working hard.
"Never put anything past him. Hopefully, we can get him in the game this week."
Red Sox manager Terry Francona joined the Dale & Holley show on Wednesday for his weekly conversation and revealed that Felix Doubront was sent back to Boston due to suffering neck pain on his non-throwing side.
"On his non-pitching side of his neck in the front there he was having some pain," Francona said. "So, we actually decided because of last night to send him back to Boston today to get him looked at and figure out what's going on there to rule out some things. The good news is that it's not his pitching arm, in fact it's not his arm, it's his neck but it's on the other side and he was starting to grab at it a little bit so we kind of wanted him to get it looked at and we'll see what the word on it is."
Francona was asked about various controversial decisions in the Tampa Bay series, including J.D. Drew's catch on a sacrifice fly.
