Cameron plays seven innings in center

Red Sox outfielder Mike Cameron logged seven innings in center field in the second game of his rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket. He went 1-for-3 with a single, walk and strikeout. He handled a pair of fly balls in center field.

 

Prior to the game, Red Sox manager Terry Francona said that Cameron feels he will need a four- or five-game rehab assignment before returning to the majors. He will take Wednesday off, then likely return to the lineup on Thursday afternoon.

Doc passes on the torch question

CLEVELAND — For the last few days all the talk around the Celtics has been on the passing of the torch from the Big Three to Rajon Rondo. Funny, but the Celtics don’t look at it that way. “That’s for y’all, I’m just trying to get them to pass the ball to each other,” Doc Rivers said. “That torch stuff, I’m going to leave that alone. As long as they keep passing to each other, I’m good.” Read more coverage on Green Street.

Beckett likely out Friday with back spasms

Red Sox manager Terry Francona indicated Tuesday that Josh Beckett almost certainly will miss his next scheduled start this Friday after being unable to throw a side session because of lingering back spasms. Beckett was checked out Tuesday morning by doctors after experiencing tightening in his lower back and side. 

 

"Beckett went over and got examined this morning and I think we just wanted to make sure everything was musculature, which it is, that's good," Francona said. "He's got a spasm in his lower back. You just have to let it relax a little bit. In all likelihood, he will not pitch on Friday but because of Wake going [Wednesday] and the day off, we can stay right in order and everybody actually still gets an extra day so that works out really well."

 

Meanwhile, Jacoby Ellsbury ran the bases on Tuesday and told Francona that he is experiencing "significant improvement" as he heals...

MacMullan named to Basketball Hall of Fame

Jackie MacMullan, shortly before making her weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Tuesday afternoon, learned that she was named as a recipient of the Curt Gowdy Media Award by the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield in recognition of her "significant contribution to the game of basketball."
