Red Sox trade minor leaguer to White Sox

The Red Sox traded minor league pitcher Andrew Dobies to the White Sox in exchange for a player to be named later or cash. Dobies, who turned 27 on Tuesday, was a third-round pick by the Sox in 2004.

 

The left-hander was off to a nice start to the 2010 season, having allowed one run in five innings while striking out eight in three relief appearances for Double-A Portland. In parts of six seasons in the Red Sox system, he had a 24-25 record and 4.08 ERA while striking out 7.1 batters per nine innings and walking 2.5 hitters per nine.

Surgery not ruled out for Cameron

Red Sox outfielders Mike Cameron and Jacoby Ellsbury both were placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday. Cameron was sidelined retroactive to April 19 with a lower abdominal strain, while Ellsbury's D.L. stint was made retroactive to April 12, the day after he absorbed a left chest contusion in a collision with third baseman Adrian Beltre.

 

"I had no choice. If it would have been anything else – shoulder, groin – I’d probably still try to play. But the fact of where this is located at, there’s nothing that you could possibly do," said Cameron. "Most people wouldn’t have been able to get out of bed, let alone play a baseball game. I was trying to play baseball, and my body just said that enough is enough – you can’t go no more. It had to literally lock me up for me to understand that, this is what it’s going to take for you to stop playing and that’s it."

Theo: 'Not time for excuses or sugar-coating'

Speaking prior to the Red Sox' series opener against the Rangers Tuesday night at Fenway Park, Sox' general manager Theo Epstein met with the media to discuss his team's 4-9 start. Epstein reiterated that the organization had to take 'ownership' of their struggles, and that he, assistant general manager Ben Cherington, the coaching staff and manager Terry Francona had met Tuesday to go through the entire roster in an attempt to find some solutions in regards to fixing the team's problems.

 

“It’s certainly not the time for excuses or sugarcoating it we’ve played bad baseball," Epstein said. "It’s a bad stretch of play and when you do that at the start of the season, it looks even worse. I don’t think this is about perception or optics. It’s just what it is. It’s been bad baseball. We haven’t played well. There are no excuses for how we’ve played. We haven’t played smart...
