Veteran TE Foschi visits Patriots

Veteran tight end J.P. Foschi visited and worked out for the Patriots on Friday, according to his agent Ralph Cindrich. Foschi is a 27-year-old out of Georgia Tech who has bounced around the NFL since he debuted in the league as an undrafted free agent with the Raiders in 2005. A 6-foot-3, 265-pounder, Foschi enjoyed his best season with the Bengals in 2009 when he caught 27 passes for 260 yards and two touchdowns.

No major injury for Bonser

Red Sox pitcher Boof Bonser, who got shelled in a rehab start this week, was examined by Red Sox team doctors on Friday. The examination determined that the right-hander -- who underwent surgery on his rotator cuff and labrum last February -- was merely suffering from some normal stiffness, and not a more serious condition.


There is not yet a timetable for when Bonser will resume throwing. The Sox will re-examine the pitcher on a day-to-day basis to determine when he might be able to do so, which will allow him to start a new rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket. In the meantime, Bonser was simply relieved that his injury was not a major one.

 

"It's a big relief. I was thinking, 'Look out -- just coming off surgery, who knows what could be wrong with it?'" said Bonser. "But they checked it out and everything was good."

Cameron scheduled to return Saturday

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said that outfielder Mike Cameron, who had a kidney stone removed on Friday morning, was likely to return to the lineup on Saturday.

 

"I think Cam will be ready tomorrow," Francona said after the contest between the Sox and Rays was suspended entering the bottom of the ninth inning. "He really improved as tonight progressed. Unless he shows up and goes backwards tomorrow, which I don't think he will, he'll probably play."

 

Jacoby Ellsbury, however, continues to suffer from his injured ribs. Francona said that Ellsbury is "still feeling it," and is unlikely to play for the sixth straight day on Saturday. Nonetheless, Francona said that the team is still hoping to avoid putting the outfielder on the disabled list.

Sox-Rays suspended until Saturday

The game between the Red Sox and Rays has been suspended until Saturday (starting at 7:10 p.m.) after it was halted due to rain with the score tied at 1-1 heading into the bottom of the ninth inning. The teams sat through rain delay that began at 10:21 p.m. after Jonathan Papelbon struck out Tampa Bay's B.J. Upton to end the Rays' half of the ninth.

 

The Saturday game already scheduled will start approximately 30-45 minutes after the completion of the suspended Friday night game. Fans holding tickets for Saturday's regularly scheduled game may use them for both the conclusion of the suspended contest as well as the scheduled game. Tickets for April 16 will not be valid Saturday.

 

The Red Sox had tied the game thanks to a solo homer by Jason Varitek in the fifth inning. Sox starter Josh Beckett went seven innings, allowing one unearned run on four hits, striking out eight and walking one. Beckett threw 106 pitches. The...
