Notes

  • Lester has scheduled a press conference that's expected to start right about now.
  • Papelbon's injury is not severe. Boston.com explains it like this: "Essentially, Papelbon had a slippage in the shoulder joint because of fatigue in the area. No timetable was announced at this time."
  • Wake has thrown another simulated game and is expected to return to the rotation next week barring any setbacks.
  • In his last start, against Toronto, Snyder went seven innings without giving up a run and allowing only two hits and two walks.
  • Since his no-decision in the marathon 19-inning game between the Soxes right before the All-Star break, Contreras is 2-7 with a 5.71 ERA.
  • Let's bring out the brooms, shall we?
