Okajima to DL, Doubront promoted

The Red Sox will place left-hander Hideki Okajima on the disabled list. In his place, the Red Sox have recalled left-hander Felix Doubront from Triple-A Pawtucket.

 

Okajima experienced hamstring discomfort during his outing on Thursday night, manager Terry Francona said after the game. The Sox veteran is 4-3 with a 5.85 ERA in 2010. Doubront is 1-2 with a 4.11 ERA in three starts for the Sox this year. He recently pitched in relief for the first time as a professional, retiring all six batters he faced for Triple-A Pawtucket, four on strikeouts and two on groundballs.

J. Kraft on D&H: Brady relationship 'stronger'

Patriots president Jonathan Kraft joined the Dale & Holley show Friday afternoon from training camp in Foxboro. Kraft played down reports of hard feelings between the team and Tom Brady during contract negotiations. "I saw him this morning, had a great conversation, very warm and friendly," he said. "From where I sit, the relationship that we've had with him and the relationship that I've had with him is the same as it's always been, and if anything it's stronger."

 

Kraft said issues with the collective bargaining agreement and its affect on future salary caps are key reasons why a deal has not yet been done. "The realities of trying to get a contract of that magnitude and that complexity done when you truly do not know the rules of the road going forward makes it complicated for each side to be sure that they're not doing something that dramatically impacts them from a positive perspective going forward,"...

Schefter: Brady deal 'going to get done'

ESPN football insider Adam Schefter took a break from his training camp bus tour to talk to the Dale & Holley show Friday afternoon. One of the first topics of conversation was the return of Wes Welker to Patriots practices after suffering what was thought to be a horrible knee injury in Week 17 of last season. 

 

"He's surprising everybody," Schefter said. "Even today during [an interview], he said that the doctors told him it would be eight to nine months before he's back on the field, before he could think about being back on the field. ... The guy is an awfully tough football player, and what he's done here has been remarkable."

 

Schefter also addressed the contract negotiations between the Patriots and star quarterback Tom Brady. Many in New England are worried that it will take some time for a deal to be completed, if it even is completed. Schefter did not seem nearly as worried.

Kendrick Perkins taking physical for Sox

Red Sox sixth-round draft pick Kendrick Perkins will be in Boston on Friday to take a physical, likely the final hurdle for the athletic outfielder to sign with the Sox. Perkins, a two-sport star at La Porte High School, has a baseball and football scholarship offer to Texas A&M. But he appears ready to bypass that opportunity in order to begin his pro baseball career.

 

Perkins is not related to the Celtics player of the same name. For more on the baseball-playing Kendrick Perkins, click here. For complete Red Sox coverage, visit weei.com/redsox.

Mashup: Pedro says Mets 'left me hanging'

Former Red Sox ace Pedro Martinez made a promotional appearance in New York Thursday and said the Phillies and several other teams recently tried to lure him out of retirement, but he's going to continue to spend time with his family instead — at least for now. And in comments that should sound familiar to Boston fans, Pedro criticized the Mets for not re-signing him after the 2008 season. "They didn't pull me back," Martinez said. "They left me hanging after I let go of so many teams. It's business. I know that baseball has a bad side. And that's the bad side of baseball — business."

 

Also in the news, a Louisiana youth baseball coach who tested positive for extreme levels of animal steroids was sentenced to jail time for his assault on the coach of a rival team of 8-year-olds during postgame handshakes. It just so happened the game involved teams named Yankees and Red Sox.
