Six Red Sox named to All-Star team

Six Red Sox were named to the American League All-Star team -- David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia, Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz, Victor Martinez, and Adrian Beltre. Pedroia, Martinez and perhaps Buchholz -- who is missing his next start -- won't be available due to injury. 

 

Lester and Buchholz will be joined in the American League pitching staff by CC Sabathia, Fausto Carmona, David Price, Neftali Feliz, Phil Hughes, Mariano Rivera, Matt Thornton, Jose Valverde, Cliff Lee, Trevor Cahill, and Joakim Soria. Along with Ortiz, Pedroia, Martinez and Beltre, the AL reserves will consist of Ty Wigginton, Miguel Cabrera, Torii Hunter, Alex Rodriguez, Elvis Andrus, Ian Kinsler (who is replacing Pedroia on the roster), Jose Bautista, John Buck (replacing Martinez) and Vernon Wells.

 

Kevin Youkilis has been named one of five players who is part of the fan voting for the 34th member of the American League squad. He is joined by Paul...

Buchholz won't make next start

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said prior to his team's game Sunday against the Orioles that pitcher Clay Buchholz, who has been coming back from an injury to his left hamstring, won't be making starts either Monday or Tuesday against Tampa Bay. A trip to the 15-day disabled list is possible, with Felix Doubront the most likely candidate to fill in for Buchholz Tuesday. Buchholz is expected to partake in an extended workout Monday in St. Petersburg to test the injury. The pitcher still hasn't thrown off a bullpen since injuring his hamstring in San Francisco June 26. Daisuke Matsuzaka will make the start for the Sox Monday, with Tim Wakefield going Wednesday.

Report: Celtics eyeing Barbosa, Fernandez

According to a report in the Boston Herald, the Celtics are looking at trades that could bring them either Phoenix' Leandro Barbosa or Rudy Fernandez of Portland. The report states that the Celts would most likely use Rasheed Wallace's contract to secure Barbosa, a 27-year-old swingman who will make $7.1 million in 2010-11 after averaging 9.5 points in 17.9 minutes per game for the Suns last season. Fernandez is a 6-foot-6 shooter who averaged 8.1 minutes and 1.0 assists in 23.2 minutes for the Trail Blazers in '09-10. He is due to make $1,246,680 in the coming season, and has a team option of $2,180,443 for '11-12. For more see the Celtics team page by going to weei.com/celtics.

Pap on All-Star nod: 'I've given myself a shot'

When asked after the Red Sox' 9-3 win over the Orioles Saturday night if he felt like he had a first half worthy of a selection to the American League All-Star team, Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon said, "I do. I feel like that if you're on a winning team and you're up at the top of saves -- and that's what I have to do is go out and get saves -- I've given myself a shot."

 

Papelbon has made the All-Star team in each of his first full seasons in the major leagues, and is in position to earn another berth when the teams are announced noon on Sunday. The reliever is second in the AL in saves with 19, trailing Texas' Neftali Feliz and Joakim Soria of Kansas City, both of whom have 21. Tampa Bay's Rafael Soriano also has 19 saves, but with just one blown save compared to Papelbon's three.

 

A potential roadblock for Papelbon is his ERA, which stands at 3.71 in large part to back-to-back blown saves in Colorado where he...

Lester, Sox continue to pound O's

After belting two homers on Friday, J.D. Drew had three more hits and Kevin Youkilis drilled a long two-run homer and drove in three runs as the Red Sox beat the Orioles, 9-3, at Fenway Park. David Ortiz also had three hits and an RBI in the victory, Boston's 12th in their last 16 games. 

 

The run support was more than enough for Jon Lester [10-3], who joined Clay Buchholz as a 10-game winner on the Red Sox staff. Lester, who allowed just one run and five hits over seven innings, improved to a perfect 12-0 in 15 career starts against the hapless Orioles. 

 

The Red Sox improved to a season-best 17 games over .500 at 49-32 as they reached the halfway mark of the season. Since starting the season 4-9, the Red Sox are 45-23, the best mark in the majors. They remain a half-game behind the Yankees in the American League East.
