The mass exodus from the Red Sox' disabled list is set to begin. While nothing is yet set in stone, catcher Victor Martinez, on the 15-day DL since June 29 with a broken thumb, is expected to be playing Monday, when Boston opens a three-game series in Anaheim. Terry Francona said, “all things point to him being ready to go."
"I actually think hes probably going to be ready [on Monday]," he said. "It's silly to make the decision today. He's going to catch some guys [in the bullpen]. If he comes in and says, 'Hey, I'm hurting,' then we're not going to do it. But I think all things point to him being ready to go."
