Former NFL safety Darren Sharper is suspected of committing seven rapes and 11 druggings that allegedly occurred in California, Arizona, Los Angeles and Louisiana.
Charges on Sharper were filed in LA on Friday on two cases of drugging-rapes, but in the filings he is suspected of additional drugging-rapes. Sharper will be arraigned on February 20th and has been suspended without pay since he was originally arrested on January 17th in LA.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
The Red Sox are looking for an opportunity to give Brian Johnson his major league debut.
Johnson has a 2.92 ERA and 8.76 K/9 over 49 1/3 innings here in his first go-around with Triple-A Pawtucket. While the Red Sox would like to give him a taste of the majors, they'd obviously prefer to have a stronger rotation and not need to dip into their farm system as much as they have already. Steven Wright and Eduardo Rodriguez are getting a look right now. Should they fail and the struggles at the back end of the rotation continue, then perhaps we'll see Johnson at some point.
