Millwood to make PawSox debut Wednesday

Kevin Millwood will make his first official start for the Red Sox organization Wednesday night when he takes the mound for Triple-A Pawtucket at 6:05 p.m. The 36-year-old righty was signed by Boston on May 19 to provide organizational depth at the starting pitcher position after John Lackey, who is in Pawtucket himself for a rehab assignment Tuesday, and Daisuke Matsuzaka went on the disabled list with injuries.  

Millwood had been down in Florida for extended spring training before getting called up to Triple-A. PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler confirmed that Millwood was in Pawucket before Tuesday's game. 

The righty had made three starts for the Yankees organization, one for Double-A Trenton and two for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre, before opting out of his deal with New York because the team had failed to call him to the majors before a May 1 deadline. Millwood had allowed eight earned runs over nine innings pitched in those two starts...

McDonald to join Lackey in Pawtucket

Red Sox manager Terry Francona, in his weekly appearance on The Big Show, said that outfielder Darnell McDonald will begin a rehab assignment in Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday night, joining right-hander John Lackey, who is making his first rehab start since going on the DL with a right elbow strain on May 16.

McDonald went on the disabled list with a strained left quadriceps on Thursday, at a time when the Sox were without J.D. Drew (hamstring) and wanted to summon left-handed hitter Josh Reddick from Triple-A. In just 19 games this year, McDonald is hitting .143 with a .503 OPS in 23 plate appearances.

Lackey, meanwhile, is 2-5 with an 8.01 ERA. He received a cortisone shot in his right elbow two weeks ago, at a time when he was described as struggling to finish his pitches. The 32-year-old is expected to throw roughly four innings and 70 pitches in his rehab start. If all goes according to plan, Lackey would then return to the Red Sox...

Sox to activate Jenks, option Bowden

Red Sox manager Terry Francona, in his weekly appearance on The Big Show, said that reliever Bobby Jenks would be activated (as planned) for Tuesday night's game against his former team, the White Sox. In order to clear a roster spot for Jenks, the Sox will option Michael Bowden back to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Jenks struggled to a 1-2 record and 9.35 ERA in 11 appearances before landing on the disabled list with a right biceps strain in the first week of May. The 30-year-old made a pair of rehab appearances in Pawtucket over the weekend, allowing a run in two innings while allowing two hits, walking one and striking out two. Bowden tossed a pair of shutout innings of relief on Monday against the White Sox, allowing three hits and one walk while striking out a batter.

Kluzak on D&C: Bruins win in seven

NESN Bruins analyst Gord Kluzak talked to the Dennis & Callahan show Tuesday morning with the Stanley Cup finals set to start Wednesday evening. The former B's defenseman began his talk about the differences between the two sides, with the highlight among those differences regarding of course penalties and power plays. 

"Well, I think what the Bruins would want it to look like is very physical, sort of played in the corners and in the high traffic areas, certainly a five-on-five series," Kluzak said. "I think what the Canucks would want it to look like is very end-to-end, very high-tempo, lots of penalties, lot of power plays on each 'side. I think those are the two ways these teams are built."

There is also a difference between the two sides in net, according to Kluzak. Although some see the battle between the netminders for each side as a relative wash, the NESN analyst was willing to give the advantage to Bruins...
