Mashup: ESPN's Barnaby sentenced

ESPN NHL analyst and former player Matthew Barnaby was sentenced to 500 hours of community service and continued anger management counseling after an incident in May involving his estranged wife. Barnaby allegedly kicked and damaged the garage door in an attempt to get inside his former house, but he did not make contact with his estranged wife or her boyfriend inside. He agreed to reduced charges of misdemeanor criminal mischief and aggravated harassment, charges that will be dismissed if Barnaby serves his sentence.

Sox offer updates on Lester, Buchholz

The Red Sox released the following statement from team medical director Dr. Thomas Gill regarding the health of pitchers Clay Buchholz (on the DL since June 19 due to a lower back strain) and Jon Lester (who went on the DL on Wednesday):

"Clay Buchholz was seen in consultation by Dr. Craig Brigham today in Charlotte. Dr. Brigham agreed with the team's assessment that the back symptoms can be treated with rehabilitation. Clay will be advanced in his activities as his symptoms allow," Gill's statement said.

"Jon Lester had an MRI today which confirmed the diagnosis of a latissimus strain. He will be treated with a period of rest from throwing, followed by progressive strengthening program. There is no specific timeframe for his return at this time. His status will be better defined following the All-Star break."

Manager Terry Francona clarified that the news was treated as positive for both pitchers. Lester won't throw...

Ells of a game: Ellsbury, Youk power Sox

Jacoby Ellsbury and Kevin Youkilis each homered and doubled twice and Tim Wakefield recovered from a rough start to baffle the Blue Jays over seven innings and lead the Red Sox to a 6-4 win Wednesday night at Fenway Park. 

Ellsbury opened the bottom of the first with a long homer to right off lefty Ricky Romero to tie the game, 1-1. Kevin Youkilis matched that with a long homer of his own in the bottom of the second to give the Red Sox a 2-1 lead. Youkilis returned to the lineup after getting hit by a pitch Monday and batted fifth and played first, giving Adrian Gonzalez his first night off. Gonzalez was rested due to a stiff neck. 

Wakefield, who allowed an RBI single to Jose Bautista in the first, surrendered another RBI single to Bautista in the third. Adam Lind followed immediately with a run-scoring double and the Jays had a 3-2 lead. Wakefield, who turns 45 on Aug. 2, allowed six hits in the first three innings but just three more...

Francona: July 18 target return for Crawford

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said before Wednesday's game that the team is hopeful to have star left fielder Carl Crawford back shortly after the All-Star break. Crawford has been on the disabled list since June 18 with a strained left hamstring. 

"I talked to Carl today, he's doing really well," Francona said. "It's not etched in stone but I think what we're going to do is wait till the All-Star break and then let him go play a couple of games when the break is over and then maybe join us in Baltimore rather than try to get him back here for a Sunday."

The Red Sox open a series on natural grass at Camden Yards on July 18 against the Orioles and Francona indicated the team would prefer that instead of rushing him back immediately after the break, when the Red Sox open the second half at Tampa Bay against the Rays on artificial turf. 

"Give him four days off and then let him go on turf and, I don't know if...

Lester to DL, Sox call up Atchison
By: DJ Bean

The Red Sox have recalled reliever Scott Atchison from Triple-A Pawtucket and placed Jon Lester on the disabled list with a left lat strain.

Lester tossed four no-hittings in Tuesday's 3-2 Red Sox win, but left with the injury. Manager Terry Francona said on Wednesday's Big Show that the team would decide Lester's fate after the 27-year-old ace had an MRI, and said prior to Wednesday's tilt with the Blue Jays that Lester was indeed headed for the DL.

Atchison, 35, has made seven major-league appearances this season, tossing 13 2/3 innings from May 5 to June 3. He has given up seven runs with the Sox on 17 hits, walking two and striking out nine with an ERA of 4.73. He has a 2-1 record and 1.39 ERA in 17 appearances with Pawtucket this season. 

In 43 appearances last season, Atchison had a 4.50 ERA over 60 innings.
