Dice-K: His MRI revealed “no structural changes” so the Sox are being cautious and placing him on the 15-Day DL. Incidents like this and the abundace of pitching will make Boston consider a 6 man rotation for the second half.
J.D. Drew: He was scratched from the starting lineup yesterday due to vertigo. He woke up and felt the hotel room was spinning, he tried to go back to sleep but it did not go away. Is it really vertigo or a case of having a few too many martinis at the hotel bar? There is a chance he will be back today but J.D. is not one to rush back from any kind of injury.
