Found June 24, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
Boston Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz has been hospitalized with intestinal bleeding, according to multiple news sources. The right-hander, who was placed on the 15-day disabled listed Saturday, is suffering from a gastrointestinal illness, according to the Boston Globe and WHDH-TV in Boston. Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said Buchholz, who was scratched from his Sunday start, is expected to recover. WHDH reported the bleeding was caused by anti-inflammatory drugs, like Ibuprofen. "We're hoping that we'll get him back at the end of the 15 days," manager Bobby Valentine said. "He did check into a hospital. ... He hasn't been here now for two days." Buchholz, who is 8-2 with a 5.53 ERA, has been placed on the DL for the third consecutive June. In 2010, a strained hamstring sidelined him and last season he was on the DL with a back problem. Veteran right-hander Aaron Cook was recalled from Class AAA Pawtucket to make the Sunday start. C...

Boston is planning to activate Aaron Cook from the 15-day DL to start...

Red Sox trading Youkilis soon

The Red Sox have been shopping Kevin Youkilis pretty hard and reportedly are close to dealing him to another team.

Kevin Youkilis' Final Moments With Red Sox 'Worked Out Perfectly' (Video)

There were feelings all day that Sunday afternoon's contest may have been the final game in a Red Sox uniform for Kevin Youkilis. That suspicion appeared to be confirmed after Youkilis took his final at-bat. A pinch runner was sent in, and Youkilis was welcomed at the dugout by his teammates and a roaring Fenway Park. It was later confirmed that Youkilis was traded to the White...

Dustin Pedroia's Three-Hit Game Could Be the Trigger Needed for a Hot Stretch

BOSTON –– This could the jumpstart that Dustin Pedroia needed. Since returning on June 5 –– after missing six games with a torn adductor muscle in his thumb –– Pedroia has sputtered at the plate, collecting just nine hits through 14 games heading into Saturday's 8-4 win over the Braves. But he finally exploded on Saturday, going 3-for-4 with two RBIs. In his second...

David Ortiz Complains to Reporters About Reporters Manufacturing Controversy (Video)

There has to be a little irony in the fact that David Ortiz took a chance to vent his frustrations about reporters drumming up controversy -- by going on a tirade to reporters, as he did Thursday. Well, rather than being a case of controversy begetting controversy,'s Didier Morais thinks that Ortiz's rant may have been a little more premediated than it seemed. Was...

Roger Clemens watches Red Sox game at Fenway Park (Video)

Roger Clemens returned to Fenway Park on Friday night as he sat in the front row of the Monster Seats to watch the Boston Red Sox play the Atlanta Braves. Clemens, who pitched for the Red Sox between 1984 and 1996, was shown on the scoreboard before the start of the fourth inning and received a mix of cheers and boos. It was one of Clemens' first public appearances since...

Felix Doubront Looking for Continued Pick-Me-Up From Sox Offense Despite Ugly Start (Video)

All in all, things could have started better for Felix Doubront. The Red Sox starter spotted Toronto a four-run lead before the Sox even came up to bat on Monday night, but that didn't mean the game was over. In fact, far from it. As NESN Nation's Dan Duquette explains, the Red Sox have been very good to Doubront so far this year. If they want to keep things that way, they...

David Ortiz's 'Papi Power' Not Enough to Overcome Barrage of Toronto Home Runs (Video)

David Ortiz and the Red Sox offense stayed hot against the Blue Jays, but this time it was the pitching that couldn't keep up. Felix Doubront fell to 8-4 on the year after falling behind early to the Jays, but Big Papi's two home runs sandwiching a long rain delay will be the story for Red Sox fans. Well, that and Will Middlebrooks officially taking the torch from Kevin Youkilis...

Felix Doubront Man of Few Words After Being Knocked Around by Blue Jays (Video)

It was a rough night for Felix Doubront, and it just didn't seem to end quite soon enough. In fact, Doubront was asked after the game how and why he was able to pitch a full six innings -- allowing 11 hits and seven runs -- despite his ineffectiveness. On this particular evening, Doubront didn't have much to say, but he did indicate that he was just trying to battle through...

Will Middlebrooks Now Has Peace of Mind With Consistent Playing Time At Third Base

BOSTON –– Will Middlebrooks can stop looking at the lineup card. After weeks of splitting time at third base with Kevin Youkilis, the rookie has officially taken the reigns of the position –– now that Youkilis has been traded to the White Sox for Brent Lillibridge and Zach Stewart. Moving forward, the 23-year-old will have more clarity when it comes to his role in the organization...

MLB's Byrd ban for drug that counters steroid side effects

Free agent outfielder Marlon Byrd was suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball for testing positive for an estrogen-blocking drug, tamoxifen, which is used to minimize side effects typical in steroid use. Tamoxifen is one of 200 substances on the banned substance list and is not a performance-enhancing drug. The unsigned Byrd will remain on the restricted list for the next...

Morales Gets the WIN Over Braves!

Franklin Morales had his second spot start for Josh Beckett who is on the DL and once again he showed a lot of promise.  I think a lot of people have Franklin Morales on their radar now that did not before, in a very good way.  Morales didn't have the best first inning, however he only allowed one run to score and settled down real well after that.  Morales started the game...

Kevin Youkilis traded to Chicago White Sox

Youkilis to White Sox for Zach Stewart, who can start or relieve. Not sure if any other pieces. Don’t believe so. — Gordon Edes (@GordonEdes) June 24, 2012 That’s one tweet from WEEI’s Rob Bradford and there are many more like it on Twitter. It looks as if Kevin Youkilis has been traded to the Chicago White Sox. Everyone at Fenway Park from the moment the game started had...

Red Sox News & Notes - 6/25

On a day where Cody Ross hit two home runs to help the Boston Red Sox to a 9-4 win over the Atlanta Braves, you would think that was the biggest story of the day. Or that Aaron Cook had a serviceable outing and the bullpen picked him up with four solid innings. Nope, the big story of the day was the fact it was the last game that Kevin Youkilis played in a Red Sox uniform. With...

Youk-less Red Sox Welcome Blue Jays into Fenway for 3
