Celtics sign big man Erden

The Celtics signed center Semih Erden of Turkey, the team announced on Monday. Erden was drafted by the Celtics with the 60th pick in 2008. The seven-foot, 240-pound big man averaged 8.2 points and 5.1 rebounds per game for Fenerbahce Ulker this past season. Erden is on the Celtics Summer League roster and will play for Turkey in the 2010 FIBA World Championships. The Celtics are in need of a big man following the injury of Kendrick Perkins.

Mashup: Infante 'worst All-Star ever'

Even Braves utility player Omar Infante himself was surprised at his selection to the National League All-Star team. He said he thought he was being traded when his general manager called him Sunday to tell him the good news. However, one columnist is baffled by the choice and calls Infante the "worst All-Star ever." Read more about that, plus check out additional stories, videos, trivia and more, at Monday's Morning Mashup.

Five Sox All-Stars get $50K bonuses

Of the six Red Sox named to the All-Star team, five (Adrian Beltre, Jon Lester, Victor Martinez, David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia) have contracts that call for them to receive $50,000 bonuses for their selections as reserves. Clay Buchholz, however, does not have an All-Star bonus clause in his 2010 contract. If Kevin Youkilis is added to the All-Star squad via fan voting, he would also receive a $50,000 bonus.

Red Sox stars dimmed by Orioles, 6-1

On a day the Red Sox had six players voted to the American League All-Star squad, the Orioles avoided a sweep thanks to three hits from Cesar Izturis and seven solid innings from starter Brian Matusz in a 6-1 Baltimore win on the Fourth at Fenway Park. The win helped Orioles avoid a three-game sweep.

 

The Red Sox were held to just a single by Bill Hall in the third and an Adrian Beltre double an inning later as the Baltimore lefty stifled the Boston bats on a hot day in the Fens. Matusz [3-9] snapped his personal nine-game losing streak in winning for the first time since April 18. 

 

John Lackey took the loss, allowing eight hits and four runs over 7 1/3 innings to fall to 9-4 on the season. Kevin Youkilis, who could join the Red Sox All-Stars if voted by fans this week, hit a solo homer leading off the ninth, giving him 17 to tie David Ortiz for the team lead.

Still no baseball activities for Ellsbury

Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, who was placed on the disabled list on May 28 for a fractured rib, has yet to resume baseball activities while at Athletes' Performance in Arizona. The 26-year-old is making progress, according to Sox manager Terry Francona, but not to the point where he is ready to rejoin the team.

 

"When he's able to do baseball activities, he'll come with us," said Francona. "He's going to stay at API until he's ready to do baseball activities, and he's not ready to do that yet. ... He does feel like he's getting better. He'd like to ramp up his activities this week. Hopefully, we'll get a report that he's able to."
