Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty has been very clear about his unhappiness with the league's decision not to suspend Zdeno Chara for the March 8 hit that ended the rookie's season, but he's also been emphatic about it not going any farther.
In wake of Tuesday's news that Montreal police still intend to question Chara for a criminal investigation, Pacioretty -- who has gotten in trouble on twitter before -- took to the social networking service to make it clear that he does not want Chara to be face any sort of criminal charges.
Tweeted Pacioretty: "Last comment on this: I hope Chara is NOT prosecuted. I have moved on from my incident and I hope everyone else can do the same."
He followed that tweet by adding, "All I am focused on is getting ready for next season, and will no longer comment on the past."

In the latest vote tally, Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury has moved within reach of Josh Hamilton for the third and final starting spot on the American League All-Star team. With voting still open on MLB.com until the end of the day on June 30, Ellsbury now has approximately 3.05 million votes, roughly 120,000 votes behind Hamilton.

PHILADELPHIA -- With Adrian Gonzalez at first base on Tuesday in the three-game series opener with the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, Terry Francona was asked in his pregame press conference about David Ortiz. The designated hitter was limited to pinch-hit duty in the first three interleague games at Pittsburgh and the Sox manager still isn't sure if Ortiz will get a start at first base in any of the five remaining interleague road contests.
"I'm kind of banging my head over it.," Francona said. "The ramifications [of a possible Gonzalez injury], we'll see … I'm not any more happy about this than he [Ortiz] is. I think it's awful. I just don't know what to do. And I don't blame him for being unhappy, he's having a great year. And he's not playing and that's awful."

Celtics team president Danny Ainge said that the team intends to extend a qualifying offer to Jeff Green this week as expected. The one-year qualifying offer worth $5.9 million keeps Green a restricted free agent.
Green could sign the offer sheet and become an unrestricted free agent after next year or he could negotiate a longer deal with the Celtics. If another team makes Green a higher offer, the Celtics would retain the right to match and sign him for that amount.

PHILADELPHIA -- Clay Buchholz -- eligible to come off the DL on July 2 -- will not pitch in the Houston series this weekend as he continues to be slowed by a strained muscle in his lower back.
"I don't know," Terry Francona said Tuesday when asked when Buchholz will return. "We are going to be really careful with him, obviously. He's improving, which is good. He's not all the way. He's not going to pitch until we're comfortable that he can handle it. We'll just continue to monitor it. He's not going to pitch in Houston. We'll see how it goes when we come back from the trip, see where he is at. We don't want him to make a start or two and then go back to where he was. So we're going to sit on him pretty tight. And I think he understands that."
Buchholz threw a side session on Monday. The right-hander is 6-3 with a 3.48 in 14 starts this season.
