Gammons: Lackey might need Tommy John

NESN and MLB Network analyst Peter Gammons, in his weekly interview on the Mut & Merloni Show, suggested that the health of starter John Lackey's elbow remains a significant concern.

Lackey has a 5-6 record and a 7.36 ERA that is the worst in the majors. The right-hander spent time on the disabled list earlier this year with a right elbow strain that required a cortisone shot, but Lackey told WEEI.com earlier this month that, while the issue is one that he needs to manage, MRIs suggested that his elbow isn't significantly different now than it was when he signed with the Sox.

Even so, Gammons suggested that there are open questions about the kind of contribution that Lackey will be able to make going forward.

"With all the problems with Lackey’s elbow, is this guy going to end...

Gammons: Sox can't add Beltran, Cuddyer

Though the Red Sox' right field production has been, statistically, the worst in the American League, NESN and MLB Network analyst Peter Gammons -- in his weekly visit on the Mut & Merloni Show -- suggested that the club will not make a blockbuster move to address the position.

While players such as Mets right fielder Carlos Beltran and Twins outfielder Michael Cuddyer could both be available this summer, Gammons suggested that the Sox are near their payroll limit, to the point where they wouldn't be able to take on players like Beltran and Cuddyer who are making eight-figure salaries.

"No chance. No chance. If they can add a million, maybe a Jeff Baker [from the Cubs] or someone like that, [Rockies outfielder Ryan] Spilborghs is [making $1.9 million], that would be [$800,000] at the trade deadline, they might be able to do that at the trade deadline, but as of right now, they spent their money during the winter," said...

Remy on D&C: Sox need Ortiz in lineup

NESN analyst Jerry Remy, in his weekly visit on the Dennis & Callahan Show, said that the Red Sox need to have Adrian Gonzalez play right field in order to get David Ortiz' bat in the lineup at first base during the current three-city, nine-game swing through interleague ballparks.

"I’d tell him to go put his back against the wall, don’t go back on anything, don’t dive for anything, just come in on the ball and don’t worry about a thing. Just catch anything you can, because you’ve got to get the other guy in the lineup. That’s all there is to it," said Remy. "They can’t continue with the lineup out there that they’ve been putting out there for these interleague games on the road. I mean, it’s been ridiculous. You get down [past] the four hitter and you’ve got a guy like Cameron who’s hitting .100, you’ve got McDonald, who’s hitting .100. There’s...

Pedroia: 'Going to have to play 2B, 1B, RF'

Red Sox manager Terry Francona told reporters after the Red Sox' 5-0 loss that he had yet to make a decision about whether to feature Adrian Gonzalez in right field in order to clear a lineup spot for David Ortiz at first base.

"I haven't made the lineup out yet," Francona said after the game. "We'll see."

But Francona's second baseman may have tipped the team's hand. Dustin Pedroia suggested that his job description will expand on Wednesday, when his team is likely to feature Adrian Gonzalez in right field and David Ortiz at first base.

"It will be good offensively, but damn, I’m going to have to play second, first and right," said Pedroia. "I’ve got small legs. That’s a lot of ground. I’m going to have to talk to Tito."

Ortiz will be playing a position for the first time since the interleague schedule last year. He suggested that his glove has barely seen the light...
