Buchholz: No talks of long-term deal with Sox

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Red Sox right-hander Clay Buchholz, who earned a spot on the American League All-Star team on the strength of a first half in which he went 10-4 with a 2.45 ERA before suffering a lower left hamstring strain, said that he and the club have not had any conversations about a possible long-term deal.

 

Buchholz said earlier this year that he would like to follow in the footsteps of teammate Jon Lester and sign a long-term deal. Yet while neither Buchholz (and his agent) nor the Sox have initiated such dialogue, Buchholz -- who would not be eligible for salary arbitration until after the 2011 season, and who would not reach free agency until after the 2014 season -- suggested there is no urgency in the matter.

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...

All-Star mixup: Beltre says he will play

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...
