Cameron Returns to Sox and Starts in CF Tonight
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – The Boston Red Sox have activated
outfielder Mike Cameron from the 15-day disabled list.
Cameron was in the starting lineup for Tuesday night's game
against Tampa Bay. The center fielder missed 34 games with a lower
Red Sox manager Terry Francona said Cameron will get playing
time in left during the “near future” in an attempt not to
overtax him. In those games, Jacoby Ellsbury would start in center.
Also, Boston catcher Victor Martinez, who left Monday's game
with a bruised left big toe, was availble off the bench in an
Red Sox right-hander Josh Beckett, on the DL with a lower back
strain, had a long toss and short mound session. He could throw a
full bullpen on Friday.
