Matt Clement was released this afternoon from Bayfront Medical Center in Tampa and will rejoin the team for its flight back to Boston.
Team medical director Dr. Thomas Gill: "Matt stayed in the hospital overnight and underwent further tests and observation this morning. The results of a second CAT scan taken this morning were also negative, and Matt was released from the hospital this afternoon. Matt will accompany the team back to Boston tonight and be evaluated by our medical staff upon his return."
Terry Francona: "He was in really good spirits and he looked a little groggy, but he was doing OK. He had a little cut on his ear, but I don't think it was that swollen. It was amazing, his ear was red. I was shocked."
