Beltre: 'I should be able to play' in ASG
By: DJ Bean

TORONTO -- Red Sox third baseman Adrian Beltre, who left Sunday's 3-2 victory over the Blue Jays with a hamstring tear, said that the feels 'so-so' and that he "should be able to play" in the All-Star game on Tuesday in Anaheim. 

"So far I'm playing for now if they ask me to but we'll see how it feels tomorrow," Beltre told reporters following the game. He noted that he "won't try to risk anything." 

"If I don't feel good, I won't play," Beltre said.

Beltre said that the injury occurred about three steps before Beltre reached first base after grounding to shortstop in...

Beltre injured, but Sox beat Blue Jays
By: DJ Bean

TORONTO -- The Red Sox didn't get much offense and suffered yet another injury but were able to muster a 3-2 victory over the Blue Jays on Sunday. Both starting pitchers in game were very productive in churning out quality starts. Jesse Litsch held the Red Sox hitless until the sixth inning and pitched seven strong frames, while Daisuke Matsuzaka countered with six brilliant innings and a not-so-brilliant start to the seventh. 

 

Third baseman Adrian Beltre was pulled from the game in the bottom of the sixth inning with a left hamstring strain, forcing Bill Hall over to third base and bringing Eric Patterson into the game at second base. The injury appeared to have occurred while Beltre was running to first base in the fifth inning on a grounder to short.

 

Matsuzaka earned his sixth win of the season and was given all the offense he needed in the sixth when David Ortiz followed a two-run Darnell McDonald...

Beckett throws four innings in rehab

PAWTUCKET — Josh Beckett allowed two hits, including a home run, and one run in four innings of work during a rehab start for Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday at McCoy Stadium against the Syracuse Chiefs. Beckett has been on the disabled list with lower back strain since his last start against the Yankees on May 18 on a wet Yankee Stadium mound. 

 

Beckett threw 19 pitches in the fourth inning, finishing with 68 pitches, 42 for strikes. Beckett retired 12 of the the 14 batters he faced, striking out four and walking none. He yielded a long homer to right by DH Jason Botts on a 90 MPH cutter in the fourth. Beckett used his final inning to work nearly exclusively on his cutter, significant because he faced three left-handed batters.

 

On the day, Beckett’s velocity tapped out at 96 on his fastball and 91 on his cutter, according to the right field radar gun.

Sox notes: Buchholz should go Friday
By: DJ Bean

TORONTO -- In speaking with members of the media prior to Sunday's matinee with the Blue Jays, Red Sox manager Terry Francona said that Clay Buchholz should be on track to pitch in Friday's game against the Rangers. Buchholz has been on the disabled list with  lower hamstring tear and Felix Doubront is expected to pitch if Buchholz cannot.

 

"Yeah," Francona said when asked if he expected Buchholz to make the start. "Saying that, we're doing what we're doing with Doubront [and] I think that makes sense, but yeah, I think he's going to be fine."

 

Mike Cameron would have been in the lineup on Sunday were it not for his swollen right wrist. He was hit by a Brandon Morrow fastball in the team's 9-5 loss before later being tossed from the game for arguing balls and strikes. Darnell McDonald is starting in center field.

 

"He's fine he's just sore," Francona said. "He got...
