Update: Tim Wakefield out for ALDS, not ruled out for playoffs

Tim Wakefield is pretty hurt, but Terry Francona isn't ruling him out for a potential trip to the ALCS or World Series:

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said prior the Red Sox’ game, Sunday, with the Indians that Tim Wakefield will not be on the American League Division Series roster, but that the team is not ruling out the knuckleballer making an appearance in the postseason if the Sox advance. "I think it’s kind of obvious the situation he’s in … Talked to him about not shelving his season … he’s on board with that," Francona said.

Still, no one hold your breath for a Wakefield comeback.
