Embree designated for assignment

Red Sox reliever Alan Embree, just two days after being called up to the majors, was told after his team's 5-4 loss to the Orioles on Friday that he was being designated for assignment to clear a roster spot for starter Daisuke Matsuzaka, who will make his regular season debut on Saturday in Baltimore.

 

“They said, ‘It sucks. There’s no good way to put this,’” Embree told reporters. “It’s one of those things where, I mean, I knew what the numbers were coming in. It was going to be kind of dicey one way or the other. It’s going to be either four days or I’m going to be here. It came up and my number was picked.”

 

Embree did not pitch in a game in his second tour with the Red Sox. The 40-year-old signed a minor league contract during spring training that called for him to earn a $500,000 salary if added to the major league roster. The Sox are now responsible for...

Tejada sends O's past Sox in extras

The Red Sox appeared headed to an impressive 4-3 come-from-behind victory when J.D. Drew delivered a go-ahead homer for Boston in the top of the eighth. But the bullpen betrayed that advantage in Baltimore, as Orioles third baseman Miguel Tejada smashed a game-tying homer off of Daniel Bard in the eighth inning, then delivered a game-winning single back up the middle in the bottom of the 10th, as Baltimore claimed a 5-4, walkoff victory.

 

J.D. Drew hit a pair of homers for the Sox, and Dustin Pedroia also went deep. That put Sox starter John Lackey (7 IP, 3R, 2ER, 3BB, 6K) in position for a win, until Tejada's late heroics pushed the Orioles to victory.

 

With the loss, the Sox finished April with an 11-12 record.

Gammons: Francona's toughest job yet

Making his weekly appearance on The Big Show, Hall of Fame baseball analyst Peter Gammons said that this season might be the most difficult Terry Francona has ever had to manage, with the David Ortiz situation looming large. "In time I think the Wakefield situation will abate. I think in time if he gets more at-bats the Lowell situation will calm down. I do think that treading the line how far they go with Ortiz and whether or not he gets so frustrated and embarrassed he just blows up, I think that's the line that's going to be very difficult here," Gammons said. "I don't know how it's going to end up. I don't have a solution to it. I do think it's going to be determined fairly quickly."

 

Regarding Ortiz' struggles, Gammons went on to say, "if it goes another entire month it could have a negative affect" on the Red Sox' clubhouse. The NESN analyst also touched on the Sox' catching situation, reporting that the...

According to SoxProspects.com, Pawtucket Red Sox catcher Mark Wagner will be out of the lineup at least six weeks with a broken forearm that occurred when he fouled a ball off the hand during Thursday's game against Indianapolis. Wagner was hitting .222 through 16 games and will most likely be replaced in the starting lineup by Dusty Brown, with Gustavo Molina potentially being activated off the 15-day disabled list.
