Steve Blake has been experiencing pain in his right elbow, but doesn't expect to miss any time due to the injury.
The Lakers do not play until Tuesday, so Blake will have three more days to his ailing elbow before returning to action. Luckily for the Lakers they have a good backup plan in Kendall Marshall who continues to impress when given the opportunity. Consider Blake day-to-day at this point.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
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.
