Manny Delcarmen had an ice pack on his right knee and won't throw for a couple of days, but he said he's fine after slipping on the wet grounds at City of Palms Park while trying to turn a double-play and leaving the game in the seventh inning.***
"I just slipped a little bit on the mound ... I have a little bit of tendinitis on my knees anyway, so anytime I slip, it might flare it up a little bit ... but I'm good. They probably won't let me throw for a couple of days."
Nick Cafardo, Globe:
Manny Delcarmen has just left the game walking gingerly out of the game out with the trainer and replaced by Craig Breslow here in the seventh. The ground was wet as a result of the rain that's falling at the moment but Delcarmen went to reach for a ball and then made a throw to second and came up a bit lame.Breslow did not pitch, however, as the game was called in the top of the seventh, with the Red Sox ahead 7-4. Julio Lugo (lower back tightness) did not play; he has now missed 11 games.
Rocco Baldelli has been placed on Tampa's disabled list indefinitely due to "metabolic and/or mitochondrial abnormalities, which cause severe fatigue and muscle cramping. ... his body is not producing the chemical ATP (adenosine triphosphate), causing his muscles to not work properly or recover as they should ..."
