Buchholz takes another step forward

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz turned in three solid innings against the Pirates, Saturday at City of Palms Park, allowing just one hit while throwing 17 of his 28 pitches for strikes. Buchholz, who was making his second outing of spring training, struck out two and walked one. In his first outing of the spring Buchholz had allowed three runs on five hits to Baltimore.

 

"That's the least of my worries right now," Buchholz said regarding worrying about how Matsuzaka's set-back would affect the organization of the pitching staff. "I want to be on this team for the duration of the season. Two and a half months isn't going to mean that much if something happens that I don't do my job and end up in the same spot as last year. I'm going to keep working regardless how many starters there are in line right now and just do the stuff I have to do. Like I said a million times things will take care of themselves...

Stiff neck halts Daisuke's BP session

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Daisuke Matsuzaka was forced to scratch his scheduled batting practice, in which he was supposed to throw to batters for the first time in spring training, due to a stiff neck. Matsuzaka experienced the stiffness while warming up in bullpen, having thrown just five pitches before stopping. Matsuzaka had been behind schedule due to a back ailment at the outset of camp, but was tentatively scheduled to pitch in his first spring training game Wednesday, at City of Palms Park against the Mets.

KG and Pierce 'not feeling' Doc's plan

Both Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett indicated a strong desire following Friday's game to continue playing and not occasionally sit out games as suggested to them by head coach Doc Rivers earlier in the day. “I’m not really feeling that idea but hey this is the 'Doc Rivers Show' and we are just guests on it," Garnett said. "So whatever he feels is best, you know Paul and I, I think I speak for both of us we don’t really feel that." Before Friday's game, Rivers said one idea for getting Pierce and Garnett into rhythm for the playoffs is giving them more practice time and less time in games or sitting them out altogether.

Reports: Welker has shoulder surgery

Multiple outlets are now reporting that Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker recently underwent shoulder surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff. Welker, who has led the NFL in receptions the last two seasons, suffered an injury to his left knee in the regular-season finale against Houston, but has since undergone a procedure on his shoulder that could push back a possible return to the field. The news was first reported on the Web site of blogger Seth Davis and later verified by ESPN and the Boston Herald.

 

While Davis' report suggested that Welker would be out for the coming season, ESPN.com reported that the injury does not rule out Welker for the season. Even so, a rehab from a second major injury...

Reports: Welker has torn rotator cuff

Multiple outlets have confirmed a report from Seth Davis on the website Big Rips that Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker, who suffered a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee during the final regular season game, has also suffered a torn rotator cuff. Neither outlet reported which rotator cuff was torn.

 

Welker's 2010 season was already considered to be in jeopardy by virtue of his knee injury. While Davis' report suggested that Welker would be out for the coming season, ESPN.com reported that the injury does not rule out Welker for the season. Even so, a rehab from a second major injury will not make the All-Pro's goal of returning to the...
