Lugo Will Have Surgery Tuesday

Julio Lugo will have arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Tuesday. MLB: "There is no timetable for his return, though such surgeries usually require multiple weeks of rehabilitation."

Dustin Pedroia is not worried about his strained left abdominal muscle: "I don't think it's going to linger. I'll take care of it and get it ready and get ready for the season. It won't be an issue."

Boston's five-year contract with Jon Lester has been finalized. Working on his changeup and curveball, Lester struck out eight batters in four innings of a minor league game yesterday.

WBC: Puerto Rico beat the US 11-1 last night in a game stopped in the bottom of the seventh inning because of the mercy rule. The Netherlands could eliminate the US from the WBC tonight.

Today: Clay Buchholz will start against the Orioles at 1 PM. Jonathan Papelbon will also pitch.

FY on his injury:
“When you have a physique like this, when you’re shredded and everything, something might happen.”

Billy Traber makes it a 6-2 game.

Buchholz seemed to do well, though.

Pedroia comment...priceless.

I haven't seen anyone freaking out over the absence of Lugo's services, possibly for the whole season.

Anyone?

...Anyone?

Who?

Maybe no one's going to miss Slugo?

Dice-K: 6IP, 5 hits, 0 ER, 8K...NO walks vs. Cuba.

Nope. Not freaking out here.
