Daisuke: 'I'm ready to answer that call'

Daisuke Matsuzaka will make at least one more start in the minor leagues, with Red Sox manager Terry Francona announcing that the pitcher will make his third straight appearance for the Pawtucket Red Sox, starting Wednesday against Lehigh Valley, the Phillies Triple A affiliate. Matsuzaka has not allowed a run in his first two rehab outings with the PawSox, going a total of 11 innings.

 

Matsuzaka, who is coming off back and neck ailments, said that he feels ready to return to the Red Sox, but hasn't yet heard about what the team's plans are following his next start in the minors.

 

"I don't think I've really been told that after one more start I'm definitely going to be back in the rotation," he said through translator Masa Hoshino. "But no matter how many more rehab outings I have, whether it's one or two, all I can really do is do my best to be ready to join the rotation when I'm asked to.

Gammons: Sox have catching issues

Hall of Famer and NESN analyst Peter Gammons made his weekly appearance on the Big Show on Friday to discuss the state of the Red Sox. With the lineup coming out for tonight's game against Tampa Bay featuring Jason Varitek at catcher, Gammons said that he thinks the Sox captain will regularly be behind the plate when Josh Beckett is on the mound.

 

"Josh is very comfortable with him and Victor Martinez is going to catch Wakefield," Gammons said. "So I think it works. I really do believe, and I agree with Jason, that this is a role he can do for awhile. He is more relaxed and you are getting more production from him."

 

Staying on the topic of the catching situation, Gammons also talked about the concerns with Victor Martinez' play in the field. Gammons said that his problems behind the plate in Cleveland led to the Indians stop playing him at catcher, and that his difficulties controlling the running...

Cameron feeling 'much better'

Red Sox outfielder Mike Cameron, who had a kidney stone removed on Friday morning, said that he is feeling "much better" following the procedure. He compared the experience to giving birth, but is hopeful that it will permit him to make a return to the lineup in the near future.

 

In a best-case scenario for the Sox, said manager Terry Francona, Cameron could return to the lineup as soon as Saturday, depending on his recovery. That explains, in part, why the team felt comfortable not making a roster move to add an outfielder from the minors today.

 

The Sox are also hopeful that Jacoby Ellsbury, who hasn't played since colliding with third baseman Adrian Beltre on Sunday, can return in the next few days. With Cameron's positive prognosis, the Sox felt that they would rather hope that Ellsbury can return in the next few days rather than putting him on the disabled list and losing time when he was healthy enough to...
