Buchholz unsure of 2010 role

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz submitted his worst outing of the spring. He allowed more runs (6) than he recorded outs (5), allowing four hits and three walks while throwing three wild pitches and hitting a batter. He said that he couldn't get a feel for either his fastball or changeup, and he ended up bouncing both pitches on more than one occasion.

 

The right-hander, who seemed to cement his place in the rotation last season, when he went 7-4 with a 4.21 ERA after being called up by the Sox for the second half, now has a 10.80 ERA this spring. Asked whether he was worried that he had jeopardized his spot in the rotation (during a camp when the Sox have six established major league starters), Buchholz suggested that it was not for him to make that call.

 

“That’s not for me to decide,” he said. “I think once the season gets underway and it starts, I’ll buckle down. I...

Pedroia suffers mild left wrist sprain

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia left Tuesday night's contest against the Twins prior to the start of the bottom of the second inning due to a mild left wrist sprain. Pedroia appeared to suffer the injury against the first Twins batter of the game, when he dove to his left to corral a Denard Span grounder. After his awkward landing, he jumped up but sailed his throw to first, getting charged with the error.

 

"It was the back of his wrist. He had mild effusion, which is limited swelling. We’re going to get him X-rayed in the morning just to make sure," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. "I don’t think there’s a problem. He might be a little sore tomorrow. Hopefully, that’s all it is. He wasn’t going to play tomorrow anyway. But we’ll certainly get...

Max: Antoine had gambling problem

WEEI's Cedric Maxwell, interviewed on ESPN's "Outside the Lines," commented that former Celtics All-Star Antoine Walker was "addicted to gambling." Maxwell's interview was part of a story that focused on how Walker, who has earned over $110 million in his playing career, now is virtually bankrupt. Former Celtics coach Rick Pitino (Walker's first coach in the NBA and at Kentucky) also is featured in the piece.

NFL votes to change OT rules

NFL owners voted 28-4 on Tuesday afternoon to change the league's rules regarding overtime. Under the new proposal, the team that loses the coin toss at the start of OT would still get a possession — unless a touchdown is scored on the first possession of overtime. The sudden-death format would resume thereafter. For 2010, this rule change will only apply to playoff games. However, the league may amend the rules again during its next series of scheduled meetings in May. For more football news, check out our blog, It Is What It Is.

Bonser: Groin injury 'nothing major'

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox pitcher Boof Bonser said that the groin injury that he suffered in his outing on Monday was relatively minor. He reported that the team's training staff felt that the injury was already showing some improvement and he hoped not to have to take more than a day off, although it remained unclear precisely when the 28-year-old will be able to resume throwing.

 

"It's fine. Just a little tweak yesterday. Nothing major," said Bonser, who recalled that the discomfort arrived on his fourth pitch to Rays outfielder Ben Zobrist, the final batter faced by the pitcher in his two-plus-inning outing. "They said it's nothing to really worry about it."

 

Bonser said that he was not doing any baseball activity on Tuesday, but that he hoped to resume such activity on Wednesday. He has yet to find out when he will next pitch in a game.
