Pedroia hoping to take next step Friday

ANAHEIM -- Speaking during the American League All-Star media session at the Anaheim Marriott, Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia said he will be getting a CT scan Friday to determine how well the broken bone in his left foot is healing. If it is determined that the bone is healing properly than Pedroia will be able to shed his protective boot and be cleared to walk and participate in other weight-bearing activities.

 

"The biggest thing is if the bone are healing back together than I can do a lot more stuff and that will prevent it from breaking off," Pedroia said. "That's the biggest fear for me, if the bone is going to break off I'm out for year and that's a problem. But if it's not going to break off and it's going to be painful than we go play.

 

"That's what we're looking for. I don't know what they're looking for. I'm trying to get back in there. Guys that are hurt, we care so much it's not fun...

Despite an announcement from American League All-Star manager Joe Girardi that Adrian Beltre would not play in Tuesday night's All-Star Game, the Red Sox third baseman said he is indeed planning to appear. "For now I'm going to play," said Beltre, who has an MRI scheduled for Thursday on his sore hamstring. Beltre said he plans on seeing how the hamstring feels during the American League team's workout Monday afternoon at Angel Stadium.

 

Girardi had told the media Monday morning in Anaheim that Texas' Michael Young would replace Beltre on the roster. Young is currently not on the American League roster, although he would be Beltre isn't ready to go. Young lives in the Los Angeles area.

 

"I don't know about the communication, I just know that obviously this is Adrian's decision and right now he feels he's going to play," said Beltre's agent Scott Boras. "If he gets out there and there is...

Price, not Lester, to start for AL

ANAHEIM -- Tampa Bay's David Price will start the All-Star Game for the American League, getting the nod from AL manager Joe Girardi over Jon Lester of the Red Sox. Price is tied with CC Sabathia for the most wins in the AL (12), while carrying the league's best ERA (2.42). The case for Lester was bolstered by the fact he was just one win shy of Price, while limiting opponents to an American League-worst batting average of .203. Price was tops among player voting, according to Girardi

 

Colorado's Ubaldo Jimenez -- who hits the break with 15 wins and a 2.20 ERA -- gets the start for the National League.

 

The American League lineup is as follows: Ichiro Suzuki RF, Derek Jeter SS, Miguel Cabrera 1B, Josh Hamilton CF, Vlad Guerrero DH, Evan Longoria 3B, Joe Mauer C, Robinson Cano 2B, Carl Crawford LF.

 

The National League lineup, as announced by manager Charlie Manuel: Hanley Ramirez SS, Martin Prado 2B,...
