Chiarelli: 'We've got to sever cap space'
By: DJ Bean

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli spoke with members of the media in a conference call on Thursday and shed light on some of the issues regarding the Bruins and their financial situation heading into the 2010-2011 season. With the signing of Gregory Campbell to a two-year deal, the Bruins would now be estimated to have around half a million dollars remaining to sign Blake Wheeler and Tyler Seguin. 

 

Wheeler made $2.8 million and is headed for an arbitration hearing on July 27. That, in addition to the $900,000 salary Seguin will almost certainly get would suggest the Bruins need to make some sort of move, something Chiarelli didn't deny.

 

"We’re tight at the cap and we’ll be able to put Blake in the mix and then we’ve got to sever cap space and we’ll see where we’ll go from there as it applies to the start of the year," Chiarelli said.

Beckett: 'I'm just trying to build up'

Speaking for the first time since his first rehab start last Sunday in Pawtucket, Josh Beckett said he is making progress on building up the strength and stamina he needs to return to the rotation. Beckett, out since May 18 with a lower back strain, will make at least one more rehab start on Saturday in Syracuse for Triple-A Pawtucket before sitting down with Red Sox coaches and manager Terry Francona to determine if he can return to the rotation next week on the road trip.

 

"I haven't even heard this is my last start," Beckett said Thursday afternoon. "That's not my decision. I'm just trying to build up. I want to feel good at the end of the game and feel like I got the results I wanted but also building up is a big part of it."

 

Francona left the door open for Beckett to return to his normal spot in the rotation if everything goes well on Saturday and the days following.

MRI 'pretty good' on Beltre

Adrian Beltre had an MRI on his sore left hamstring and manager Terry Francona said the preliminary findings were "pretty good" but decided to hold him out of the starting lineup against the Texas Rangers on Thursday night at Fenway Park. Francona replaced Beltre with Bill Hall at third base for Thursday's four-game series opener. 

 

"I wasn't real comfortable playing him tonight," Francona said. "Hopefully, he'll go out move around, maybe be available to pinch-hit, play [Friday], that would be, for me, best case. I just think with the travel, I just didn't have a real good feeling running him out there. Just knowing the way he plays, I didn't want him hurting himself."

 

Beltre, who struck out in his only plate appearance during Tuesday's All-Star Game, said he felt a cramp in his left hamstring that forced him from Sunday's game in Toronto. General manager Theo Epstein said on Wednesday...

Bruins sign Campbell, three others
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced on Thursday that they have signed center Gregory Campbell, who had filed for arbitration and had a hearing scheduled in Toronto for next Thursday, to a two-year contract. Campbell was acquired by the Bruins in the Nathan Horton trade with the Panthers last month. He totaled just 17 points in 60 games last season but scored 13 goals a season prior and is a presence on the penalty kill.

 

Defenseman Adam McQuaid was also given a two-year deal while defenseman Andrew Bodnarchuk and forward Jeff LoVecchio were each given one-year pacts. The 23-year-old McQuaid played in 19 contest for the Bruins last season, scoring his first goal on February 7 against the Canadiens. He added 10 points in 32 games for the Providence Bruins. Bodnarchuk played in five games last season with the Bruins but did not show up on the scoring sheet, while LoVecchio, considered a strong defensive forward, picked up 24 points last season for Providence...

Lineups: Beltre out for Red Sox
By: DJ Bean

Though the Red Sox appear to be inching closer to clearing up some of their injury woes with rehab appearances set for Clay Buchholz, Manny Delcarmen and Josh Beckett, they begin their first post-All-Star break with one of their key contributors on the bench. Third baseman Adrian Beltre, who left Sunday's game against the Blue Jays in the fifth inning with a hamstring strain, is not in the lineup as the Red Sox take on the Rangers Thursday at Fenway Park. Beltre had just one at-bat in the All-Star game, striking out on three pitches against Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton in the bottom of the ninth inning.
