Bruins send Caron to Providence

Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced Tuesday afternoon that the team had assigned Jordan Caron to the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League.

In his first pro season, the forward made the Bruins roster out of training camp. The 20-year-old has appeared in 20 games for the B's, recording three goals and four assists. Caron was a healthy scratch for the last two games.

The Sayabec, Quebec native was selected by the Bruins in the first round (25th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Outfield not a consideration for Youkilis

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- While there had been some speculation that the Red Sox might consider a move of Kevin Youkilis to the outfield in order to make a run at re-signing Adrian Beltre, multiple baseball sources say that the team would not entertain such a possibility. Instead, Youkilis -- who has spent this offseason working out at third base, and continues to recover well from the surgery to repair the adductor muscle on his hand -- will shift from first to third to accommodate first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, who was acquired from the Padres on Monday. That, in turn, would seem to spell the end of Beltre's time with the Red Sox.

Black: Gonzalez 'goes about it the right way'

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Speaking at the winter meetings at the Dolphin Resort Hotel, San Diego manager Bud Black lamented the loss of Adrian Gonzalez to the Red Sox but said that his team would be ready for life without the first baseman, with the hope that the minor-leaguers the Padres got in return could help sooner than later.

 

"I don't know if it's going to be difficult, but it's going to be a challenge," Black said. "I think we're going to up for it." The manager later added regarding Casey Kelly, Anthony Rizzo, and Reymond Fuentes, "They're young with a lot of potential and I think they're probably closer to the big leagues than a lot of people think, for what I'm hearing." Black also said executing the trade gives his organization some "clarity where we need to go and get players."

 

When asked about Gonzalez, Black spoke glowingly. "First and foremost, he's a talented...

A-Gon on shoulder: 'They know I'm healthy'

Adrian Gonzalez assured everyone Monday that his surgically repaired right shoulder won't keep him from being an offensive force in the Red Sox batting order.

 

While WEEI.com's Alex Speier confirmed Ken Rosenthal's report of a seven-year, $154 million extension in place for the 28-year-old slugger, Gonzalez was telling everyone at his news conference at Fenway that shoulder surgery in October won't affect his 2011 season — his first in Boston.

 

"I really good," Gonzalez said. "My shoulder is ahead of schedule. I'll be ready for Opening Day, no doubt in my mind. I know my body and feel that it feels great. We went through a lot of physicals and they look at every aspect of my shoulder and the rest of my body and they know I'm healthy."
