UPDATES & NEWS
Dustin Pedroia is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Wednesday.
Pedroia will get the afternoon off on Wednesday in favor of Brock Holt, who will slide over from third base to give Kelly Johnson a rare start at the hot corner. This is nothing more than an extra day off for the Red Sox second baseman so expect ti see him back in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Astros. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Brandon Knight will not return to Saturday's game due to a hip injury.
Based on the way Knight was shooting, it seems like the hip issue was bothering him even before tip-off. He scored just one point thanks to a trip to the free-throw line and he was 0-for-6 from the floor with just two assists. Consider him day-to-day for now and expect the Suns to update his condition Sunday after tests are run. Eric Bledsoe moved over to point guard while Gerald Green came in as the primary shooting guard. Analysis: Howard Bender
Michael Saunders said Saturday that he's feeling no pain one day after undergoing knee surgery.
OK, let's not get too worked up here. We already received the good news that Saunders would only miss a few weeks of the regular season, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. It could just be the post-surgery morphine drip doing the talking here. Saunders went from late-round sleeper to potential waiver wire grab in the span of just a few days. Regardless of these type of feelgood reports, keep in mind that he still underwent a surgical procedure to repair significant damage to his knee. Analysis: Howard Bender
