NEW YORK -- Major League Baseball's replay system was designed to mitigate the human element in umpiring decisions. Instead, after coming out on the wrong side of replay calls in each of the last two games, the human element is surfacing in a different, troubling form, Red Sox manager John Farrell said Sunday night.

"It's hard to have any faith in the system,'' Farrell said after Boston's 3-2 loss to the New York Yankees.

Farrell became the first manager in the major leagues to be ejected for disputing a play that was reviewed on replay after umpires reversed their call on what would have been an inning-ending double play in the fourth inning. Once the call was reversed, the Yankees were credited with a run that would not have counted had the original call stood.

That run ultimately proved to be the margin of victory for the Yankees.

Initially, first base umpire Bob Davidson called the Yankees' Francisco Cervelli out at first after he grounded to third baseman Ryan Roberts, who threw to second to force Kelly Johnson, with second baseman Jonathan Herrera then making a relay to first baseman Mike Napoli.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi challenged the call, and after consulting MLB's replay center, crew chief Brian O'Nora announced that the call was reversed. That brought out Farrell from the visitors' dugout, and only moments into an animated discussion with the umpires, he was ejected by Davidson.

"We felt that it was clear that the replay was inconclusive,'' Farrell said, "and the frustrating part is that when this was rolled out and explained to us, particularly on the throw received by the first baseman, we were instructed when the ball enters the glove -- and not that it has to hit the back of the glove -- is where the out is deemed complete.

"At the same time, any angle that we looked at, we couldn't tell whether [Cervelli's] foot was on the bag behind Mike Napoli's leg, so where this became conclusive is a hard pill to swallow. And on the heels of yesterday, it's hard to have any faith in the system, to be honest with you.''

In Saturday's game, Farrell asked umpires to review a call at second base, where Dean Anna of the Yankees was deemed to have arrived safely on a double to right field. Farrell said he saw video replays that showed Anna lifting his foot off the bag while Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts was applying the tag; replays shown on networks broadcasting the game showed similar images. But after a replay review, umpires allowed the call to stand. MLB admitted Saturday night the call should have been reversed.

"There's going be a learning curve,'' Farrell said. "But again you'd think a video replay would be conclusive or there are plays where it would not be conclusive, which was tonight. We ended up on the wrong side both times.''

Replay was approved by both MLB and the players' union in January, and team managers and coaches were briefed on the system in spring training. The rule states, in part: "The Replay Official will look at the video feeds and determine if there is clear and convincing evidence to overturn the call on the field.'' In Farrell's opinion, obviously, the evidence was "clear and convincing" on Saturday's tag play but the call on the field was upheld, and it was not "clear and convincing" on Sunday's play at first base, but was reversed.

"As much as they're trying to help the human element,'' Farrell said, "it seems like it's added the human element at a different level.''

Dustin Pedroia sent home for wrist exam
By Peter Abraham
Globe Staff   April 14, 2014

NEW YORK — Dustin Pedroia was scratched from the Red Sox lineup before their 3-2 loss to the Yankees Sunday night and the second baseman returned to Boston with a left wrist injury the team fears could be serious.

Pedroia was injured during the home opener against the Milwaukee Brewers April 4. When Carlos Gomez slid into second base breaking up a double play in the ninth inning, Pedroia was upended and came down with his wrist bent at an awkward angle.

Pedroia is 5 for 36 at the plate since and the injury has gotten worse. Team doctors will examine Pedroia on Monday at Massachusetts General Hospital and administer an MRI.

“He went down to hit early [Sunday] and the soreness continues to persist and probably gain in intensity,” manager John Farrell said.

The Red Sox do not believe Pedroia aggravated the injury since it occurred. But the All-Star is off to a poor start as a result.

He is hitting .236 and had yet to draw a walk in 55 plate appearances. Pedroia has only one RBI.

“I think there’s probably a direct correlation to what we’ve seen at the plate,” Farrell said.

“There hasn’t been an event over the past couple of days that has brought this onset even further. It’s been more just everyday play. The soreness increases and it’s got to be checked out.”

The Red Sox started Jonathan Herrera at second base Sunday night. Ryan Roberts, who started at third base, also has experience at second.

The Red Sox have used Heiker Meneses, Justin Henry, Brock Holt, and Mike McCoy at second base in Triple A Pawtucket. Holt and McCoy have major league experience.

Pedroia tore the ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb during the first game of 2013 and had surgery following the season.

Uehara encouraged

There was a positive development for the Red Sox regarding closer Koji Uehara, who has not pitched since feeling discomfort in his right shoulder Friday.

Uehara threw for 10 minutes at Yankee Stadium Sunday afternoon and was pain free. He, too, returned to Boston and will be examined Monday. But the Red Sox expect Uehara to rejoin the team in Chicago for Tuesday night’s game against the White Sox.

“He came away from it encouraged,” said Farrell, who watched Uehara throw and spoke with him at length afterward.

“During the time he was throwing, he felt better than he actually expected.”

Farrell said the Red Sox would want Uehara to throw in the bullpen before he is cleared for a game. He last pitched Wednesday.

“Today overall was very good news regarding Koji,” Farrell said.

Uehara threw from 200 feet and then threw fastballs and splitters from flat ground.

“He was really able to generate good arm speed and he’s past some of the concerns mentally that he had,” Farrell said.

Active participant

Right fielder Shane Victorino took a step forward in his return from the disabled list. Victorino, out all season with a strained right hamstring, ran the bases, played catch, and took batting practice before the game.

He will be in Boston Monday to work with physical therapist Dan Dyrek in anticipation of starting a rehabilitation assignment with Double A Portland Tuesday.

The Sea Dogs host Binghamton Tuesday night at Hadlock Field. Victorino said Friday that he would need 2-3 games in the minors before returning to the Red Sox so he could get his timing down at the plate.

If all goes well, Victorino could rejoin the Red Sox for the start of their homestand Friday against the Orioles.

Moving up

With Pedroia out of the lineup, Grady Sizemore moved into the leadoff spot and Farrell further changed the lineup by moving Xander Bogaerts up to the No. 2 spot for the first time this season.

Sizemore and Bogaerts combined for three singles in nine at-bats but neither drove in a run or got into scoring position.

“Just to give us a little right-left balance throughout. Xander’s had very good at-bats in every game that he’s played,” Farrell said.

“He’s, at the minor league level, been a top-of-the-order type of hitter. That’s where we are today.”

The Sox have used 12 lineups in 13 games.

Jeter out again

The Yankees were without shortstop Derek Jeter for the second consecutive game. On Saturday, manager Joe Girardi said Jeter was getting a rest. But, on Sunday, it was revealed that Jeter has a sore right quadriceps.

“He’s not real happy, but I told him missing one game is better than possibly missing four to six weeks if something was to happen,” Girardi said. “I feel really good about putting him out there on Tuesday as of right now.”

The issue is something the 39-year-old Jeter has been dealing with since spring training.

“I didn’t see him move around a lot different on Friday, but it’s a concern of mine when someone tells me something is tight,” Girardi said. “I think it’s more apt to do something serious if you don’t work that stiffness out.”

Middlebrooks waits

Will Middlebrooks, on the disabled list since April 5 with a strained right calf, took batting practice and threw before the game, but did only some light jogging.

“It’s getting better, but I’m still not running on it,” he said. “I have to be able to run.”

Middlebrooks will remain with the team and hopes he will be cleared to start a minor league rehabilitation assignment by the end of the week.

Checking him out

Free agent righthander Joel Hanrahan, who had Tommy John elbow surgery last May 16, will hold a workout for teams on Thursday in Tampa.

Hanrahan, 32, appeared in only nine games for the Red Sox last season before being injured.

He was an All-Star in 2011 and ’12 for the Pirates and has 100 career saves.

The Red Sox and Yankees will be among the teams sending scouts to watch Hanrahan throw.

Cold is coming

It was 66 degrees at first pitch at Yankee Stadium, making it the warmest game of the season for the Red Sox. The team has a day off in Chicago Monday, where snow is expected. Temperatures are expected to be in the 30s Tuesday when the Sox open a three-game series against the White Sox . . . Former Red Sox and Yankees outfielder Johnny Damon, 40, was on the field watching batting practice . . . Keenan Thompson impersonated David Ortiz on “Saturday Night Live” and the Red Sox designated hitter approved, sending a message to Thompson via Twitter. The skit poked fun at Ortiz’s now-celebrated selfie with President Obama at the White House.

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Matt Moore will have season-ending Tommy John surgery on his left elbow, according to multiple reports.

Moore (0-2, 2.70 ERA) was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the team two days after leaving an April 7 start against the Kansas City Royals with discomfort in his pitching elbow.

The 24-year-old lefty missed over a month of the 2013 season with discomfort in the elbow, but returned for the team's postseason run.

"I would say it's quite a bit different in how it feels, in how it dangles, with regards to soreness," Moore said after being placed on the disabled list. "The discomfort is similar. The severity has jumped from what I was feeling. It's frustrating."

TORONTO -- Blue Jays second baseman Maicer Izturis needs surgery for a tear in his left knee and could be out for the rest of the season.

The 33-year-old Izturis was put on the disabled list Sunday. Toronto said Monday that he had a complete tear of the lateral collateral ligament.

Izturis will seek a second opinion before setting the surgery. The team said the recovery time is about four to six months.

Izturis is hitting .286 in 11 games.

NEW YORK -- Yankees backup catcher Francisco Cervelli was diagnosed with a Grade 2 hamstring strain Monday and will be placed on the 15-day disabled list before Tuesday night's game against the Chicago Cubs.

However, it is expected Cervelli will be out significantly longer than that. A Grade 2 strain, while not the most severe form of the injury, often entails a four- to six-week recovery. Last season, Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton missed six weeks with a similar injury.

Cervelli was injured legging out a potential inning-ending double-play ball in the fourth inning of Sunday night's 3-2 win against the Boston Red Sox. He was initially called out at first, but after manager Joe Girardi requested a review of the play, the call was overturned, resulting in the Yankees scoring what turned out to be the winning run.

Cervelli, who started the game at first base in place of Kelly Johnson, the regular third baseman who was himself substituting for the injured Mark Teixeira, tumbled to the ground in obvious pain as he crossed first and was immediately removed from the game. Cervelli was replaced at first by outfielder Carlos Beltran, who had never played the position in a major league game.

The Yankees have not announced who will be recalled from the minors to replace Cervelli as the backup to Brian McCann, who was also slightly injured in Sunday night's game when a pitch that hit batter A.J. Pierzynski on the elbow ricocheted off McCann's right hand. X-rays taken of the hand on Monday were negative.

The most likely candidates to replace Cervelli are Austin Romine and John Ryan Murphy, both of whom are catching for the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders.

Cervelli's injury was the latest blow to the Yankees, who currently have Teixeira on the DL with a Grade 1 calf strain and were without shortstop Derek Jeter (quad strain) and second baseman Brian Roberts (back injury) Sunday night. Closer David Robertson is also on the DL with a groin strain.

Teixeira is expected to return to the lineup when he is eligible to come off the disabled list on Sunday. The earliest Robertson can return is April 22.

The Yankees also announced they have optioned right-handed pitcher Shane Greene to Triple-A Scranton.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington was ejected from Monday night's game after disputing a ruling overturned by replay that gave the Seattle Mariners a run.

The Mariners had the bases loaded in the sixth when Brad Miller hit a comebacker to pitcher Pedro Figueroa, who threw home. Umpire Paul Schrieber initially ruled an out at the plate, even though catcher J.P. Arencibia bobbled the ball on a transfer without dropping it or making a throw.

Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon challenged the call. After a review that took 3 minutes, 31 seconds, the umpires reversed their ruling, erasing the out and giving Seattle a run.

Washington immediately came out to argue and was ejected by crew chief Ted Barrett after getting to the plate.

On Sunday night, Boston manager John Farrell became the first manager to be ejected for arguing a replay decision. Managers aren't allowed to dispute replay rulings.

NEW YORK -- Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner told reporters at a Major League Baseball-sponsored "Diversity Business Summit" that he sees no need for his club to sign free agent shortstop Stephen Drew in spite of New York's injury-depleted infield.

"I'm pretty content with our infield right now," Steinbrenner said. "I think guys like [Dean] Anna and [Yangervis] Solarte have been pleasant surprises. Kelly Johnson has been good. Derek [Jeter] is healthy. So so far, so good. But it's early."

Steinbrenner's statements confirmed a report by ESPNNewYork.com on Monday, when a source familiar with the team's thinking said there was "no way" the Yankees would sign Drew, who played shortstop for the World Series champion Boston Red Sox last season and reportedly is seeking a multiyear deal worth $14 million per season.

"Nobody's signing Drew or Morales, not at the money they're asking," said the source, referring to Kendrys Morales, a free agent first baseman who also remains unsigned. Both Drew and Morales are clients of superagent Scott Boras.

Steinbrenner was asked Tuesday if he was specifically ruling out signing Drew.

"So far, I'm pretty content with where we are," he said. "But I will always analyze options. That's my job throughout the course of the whole year."

Boras declined to comment Tuesday morning, but another source with knowledge of the situation told ESPNNewYork.com that Boras met with Steinbrenner and other members of the Yankees organization at the GM meetings in December to discuss Drew, and that the Yankees expressed interest in signing him.

Since then, however, the source said that while the Yankees' "baseball people" still wanted Drew, Steinbrenner's interest had cooled for reasons that are unclear.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman declined comment, citing language in baseball's collective bargaining agreement prohibiting team personnel from discussing free agents in the media. Last week, Tony Clark, the executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association, issued the following statement regarding Drew and Morales:

"I am angered that numerous anonymous baseball executives have blatantly and intentionally violated our collective bargaining agreement by offering to ESPN comments about the free agent values of Stephen Drew and Kendrys Morales. These statements undermine the free agent rights of the players and depress their market value. Today, I have called upon the Commissioner's Office to investigate immediately and thoroughly the sources of these statements and to take appropriate action to enforce our agreement."

Just watched one of the weirdest ejections I can remember seeing - Matt Carpenter of the Cardinals gets called out on strikes, looks pissed off, says something to the ump and walks away, and gets tossed as he's halfway back to the dugout.

I'm sort of interested in what he could have said in such a short time that was awful enough to get thrown out of a game.

Yesterday was Jackie Robinson day in MLB. How many were even aware of this ?


NEW YORK -- Marking the 67th anniversary of the day Jackie Robinson broke baseball's color barrier, the Rev. Jesse Jackson praised commissioner Bud Selig for the strides the sport has taken in minority opportunities over the past two decades.

Jackson traveled to baseball's 1992 winter meetings to criticize its lack of minorities in management, and he pushed for change.

Selig retired Robinson's No. 42 in 1997 on the 50th anniversary of the big league debut of the Brooklyn Dodgers first baseman. Selig established a Diverse Business Partners program the following year and in 1999 started requiring clubs to consider at least one minority for each manager and major executive opening. MLB also sponsors 35 Jackie Robinson Foundation Scholars.

Jackson said Jackie Robinson Day has become "a national holiday for all practical purposes."

"To honor Jackie in this way honors the best in America," Jackson told Selig on Tuesday at MLB's third Diversity Business Summit. "In many ways, had Jackie not succeeded, you could not have Atlanta Falcons or the Braves or the Carolina Panthers. You could not have these southern teams if Jackie had failed."

Robinson's daughter, Sharon, presented Selig with a large plaque. Jackson spoke from the audience after Selig's speech and told him "you took to heart that challenge."

"I guess if you're commissioner long enough, things can turn around," Selig said later.

For the first time since Robinson's number was retired, no players in the major leagues were wearing No. 42. Players using the number were grandfathered in at the time of Selig's announcement, and the last to use No. 42 was Yankees reliever Mariano Rivera, who retired at the end of last season.

"Today all of our players league-wide will wear No. 42 to celebrate the man who helped change the future course of our game and more importantly our country," Selig said.

President Barack Obama also marked the occasion, tweeting:

No. 42. He hit it out of the park. #JackieRobinsonDay pic.twitter.com/LcRhzWq7DA

- Barack Obama (@BarackObama) April 15, 2014
A ceremony had been scheduled for Yankee Stadium to unveil a plaque commemorating Nelson Mandela's visit to the old Bronx ballpark in 1990. The Yankees' game against the Chicago Cubs was rained out, and the ceremony, which includes Zondwa Mandela, a grandson of the late South African president, was pushed back until Wednesday evening.

Selig frequently points out that Robinson's first game occurred more than a year before President Harry Truman desegregated the U.S. military and seven years before the Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education decision that ruled state laws requiring segregated public schools were unconstitutional.

"Baseball must continue to be more than just a game on the field," Selig said. "The game's remarkable ability to serve as a common bond should be used to create opportunities for all people regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or gender."

Selig became acting commissioner in 1992 and got the job permanently in 1998. He plans to retire in January. He said the Diverse Business Partners program had led to purchases of more than $1 billion in goods and services from minority- and women-owned businesses.

But the percentage of African-American players in the major leagues has been cut in half since peaking at about 18 percent at times from the mid-1970s to mid-1980s.

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon, who is black, says some of this generation's players don't know of Robinson's accomplishments.

"They don't know a lot about the history, and I don't really blame it all on them. I think their generation is a generation that was force-fed these things," he said, holding up a smartphone. "Everything's now. Not much of an appreciation for the past and what it meant, particularly when it comes to baseball and baseball players. The paths that were paved for them, I don't think they really get it, or really understand it."

NEW YORK (AP) Who's on first? For the New York Yankees, it's not a joke.

Since Mark Teixiera went on the disabled list April 5 with a strained right hamstring, the $200 million Bronx Bombers have cobbled together a platoon at first base.

Kelly Johnson made his 10th start at first this season for Wednesday's doubleheader opener against the Chicago Cubs. In the other two games after Teixeira's injury, catcher Francisco Cervelli started at first twice.

Coming into the season, neither had started at first - although Johnson had shifted there three times during games.

And when Cervelli strained his right hamstring in the fourth inning Sunday, Carlos Beltran took over for Cervelli at first against Boston. Beltran had made 1,970 big league starts in the outfield and not a single appearance at first base in a 17-year career.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi had little choice but to use the player signed during the offseason to a $45 million, three-year contract because New York also was without second baseman Brian Roberts (sore back) and shortstop Derek Jeter (tight right quadriceps).

New York planned to start Jeter at shortstop the second game of the doubleheader. Roberts said he felt better, but the Yankees were likely to hold him out Wednesday because of temperatures in the 30s and 40s.

''I can put Sizemore there. I think can put (Yangervis) Solarte there and, obviously, I know can put Beltran there - probably would be my second choice though,'' Girardi said with a laugh.

The Yankees brought up Scott Sizemore from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after Cervelli was hurt. Coming off two injury wrecked seasons, Sizemore said he briefly worked out at first in Scranton but he doesn't even own a first baseman's glove.

Solarte played first base once in 627 minor league games and hasn't played there - yet - in the big leagues.

Girardi says he likely will run Sizemore out there against left-handers to give Johnson a break.

The makeshift plans will have to do until Teixeira comes back. He's eligible to come off the DL on Sunday and he's at the Yankees' facility in Tampa, Fla. Girardi said he's not sure when the switch-hitter will play in a rehab game but he is working out.

NOTES: Sizemore has a one-year contract paying $800,000 in the majors and $210,000 in the minors. He can earn $150,000 in performance bonuses based on plate appearances: $10,000 for 350, $20,000 for 400, $30,000 for 450, $40,000 for 500 and $50,000 for 550. He can be optioned back to the minors this year.

Looks like it's going to be a looooong season in Chicago and Arizona this year. Not even 10 % into the season and the Cubs are already 6.5 GBL and Arizona is 7.5 GBL.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Angels have placed outfielder Kole Calhoun on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday because of a sprained ligament in his right ankle and selected outfielder Brennan Boesch to the major league roster.

Calhoun is batting .250 with three homers and six RBIs in 14 games. He had been playing right field in place of injured slugger Josh Hamilton. Calhoun is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after rolling in his ankle in the 11th inning of the Angels' 10-9 loss to Oakland on Tuesday night.

Boesch, who signed with the Angels in January as a free agent, began the season with Triple-A Salt Lake. He played in 23 games last year with Yankees after spending his first three big league seasons with Detroit.

To make room for Boesch on the 40-man roster, the Angels transferred right-handed pitcher Ryan Brasier to the 60-day DL.
