Mashup: Twins' Hudson hints at MLB racism

Twins infielder Orlando Hudson isn’t happy that his friend, free agent outfielder Jermaine Dye, is not playing this season, and he implies the reason is racism. “Call it what you want to,” Hudson said following the Twins’ victory over the Red Sox in Minneapolis. “I ain’t fit to say it. After I retire I’ll say it. I’ve got a whole bunch of stuff to say after I retire.” After a closer look at offseason maneuverings around the league, Hudson may have a point. Read more about that, plus stories on NFL malcontents in Pittsburgh and New York, along with videos, trivia and more, at Tuesday's Morning Mashup.

Two Providence basketball players arrested

Two Providence College basketball players were arrested for beating up a fellow student Monday. Freshmen Johnnie Lacy and James Still were being held on $10,000 bail after they allegedly picked a student at random and assaulted him, sending him to the hospital with a broken nose and eyesocket along with other injuries.

 

According to a police report, the players "said they were going to beat up the next male they saw."

 

Both players, part of Keno Davis' first recruiting class, were suspended from the school. Davis already had announced that Lacy would be transferring.

Kelly throws two innings in Double-A debut

Red Sox pitching prospect Casey Kelly allowed an unearned run in two innings in a start for Double-A Portland, his first appearance at that level. The 20-year-old permitted three hits (all singles) and a walk. The run scored on a wild pitch in an inning that was sustained by an error from Sea Dogs shortstop Jose Iglesias.

 

Kelly threw 45 pitches against the New Britain Rock Cats and left with a 4-1 lead.

Twins on Target with win over Sox

The Minnesota Twins christened their new park, Target Field, with a 5-2 victory over the Red Sox. Minnesota pushed a pair of two-out runs across the plate in the bottom of the first against Sox starter Jon Lester and never relinquished that lead.

 

Lester allowed four runs in five innings of work, allowing nine hits (eight singles and a double) and three walks. He fell to 0-1 with a 7.20 ERA in the young season, and now has a career 5.08 ERA in March/April. All of the runs that he permitted came with two outs.

 

The Sox' first run came on David Ortiz' run-scoring, opposite-field double in the top of the fourth inning. Yet Ortiz went 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts on the day, dropping his average to .136 with a .436 OPS.

Report: Ortiz denies wrist injury

Speaking to the Boston Herald, David Ortiz denied a report in Sunday's Minneapolis Star-Tribune that he was battling an injured left wrist. The initial report suggested that "friends of David Ortiz say the Red Sox slugger's left wrist is hurting, though he refuses to make excuses."

 

Before Monday's game, Ortiz told the Herald that injuries have not been to blame for his poor start. He entered Monday with a .111 average (2-for-18), and six strikeouts in his previous nine plate appearances.

 

"Don’t pay attention to that crap," Ortiz said of the report of an injury. "I’m fine. If I’d have been raking they wouldn’t be saying that."
