ESPN.com says Boston general manager Ben Cherington has a message for all of those picturing Red Sox infielder Kevin Youkilis in Sedona red, black-and-silver, Dodger blue, or red pinstripes: Forget it. In an e-mail to WEEI.com on Friday, Cherington denied a CBSSports.com tweet that the Red Sox "definitely" intended to trade Youkilis, saying it was "inaccurate. " (OK, that sinks it, he's officially trade bait.) "It's our job to listen if teams have interest," Cherington wrote, saying that "some teams have checked in. " Youkilis, has a .313 average with two homers and a .903 OPS since coming off the disabled list with a back injury May 22. Among the teams reportedly interested are the Reds, Diamondbacks, White Sox, Dodgers - and your Phillies.

The Boston Red Sox placed second baseman Pokey Reese on the 15-day disabled list yesterday and acquired infielder Ricky Gutierrez from the Chicago Cubs in time for last night's home game against Baltimore. The Red Sox also recalled third baseman Kevin Youkilis and lefthander Mark Malaska from triple-A Pawtucket and sent down righthander Joe Nelson, the team said. Reese, 31, has a strained right rib cage. Gutierrez, 34, joined the Red Sox for a player to be named. Texas Rangers general manager John Hart will remain in his job for 2005, a year past his current contract, the team said.

Paul Hagen: Red Sox in seven: There are plenty of reasons to believe the Rockies can win, but Boston gets the slightest of nods here. The guess is that it will take Colorado a while to shake off its long layoff, and the overall inexperience of its roster could also be a factor. While anything can happen in a short series, there is no doubt that the American League has the better teams. And as hot as the Rockies were at the end of the season, the Red Sox are also on a roll, after rallying to beat the Indians.

All-Star closer Jonathan Papelbon took a 1-year deal to avoid arbitration. He could be in the same position next year. The Boston Red Sox righthander agreed yesterday to a contract worth $6.25 million, but he didn't get to follow teammates Dustin Pedroia and Kevin Youkilis in agreeing to a long-term deal. "We are certainly open to exploring those ideas going forward," assistant general manager Jed Hoyer said. The Red Sox also agreed to a 1-year, $1.35 million deal with lefty Javier Lopez to avoid arbitration.

What's up with Big Papi? That might be the most frequently asked question in New England these days as Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz battles through a hellacious slump. "It's been hard on him," Boston manager Terry Francona said. "He's handling it better. He knows we need him. We've gotten a lot of pats on the back the last six years because of him, so the best thing I can do is be patient with him. " Ortiz, who led the American League with 54 homers in 2006 and averages 35 over a 162-game season, didn't hit his first this season until May 20. He entered last night hitting .196 with just three homers and 24 RBIs in 53 games.

The Athletics activated slugger Yoenis Cespedes from a 15-day stint on the DL with a strained muscle in his left hand before Sunday's game against the Orioles, and he immediately went to work. Batting cleanup and playing left field, Cespedes went 2 for 5 including a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth that sent the game into extra innings. The A's are hoping he can give their slumping offense a boost. In just a little over a year in the bigs, he has had a remarkable impact on Oakland's lineup.

CLEVELAND - Another dangerous pitch has Carlos Carrasco in trouble again. The Cleveland Indians pitcher was suspended for eight games by Major League Baseball on Friday for "intentionally throwing" at New York's Kevin Youkilis, the righthander's second penalty in two years for aiming at a hitter. The Indians acquired Carrasco in 2009 as part of the trade that sent Cy Young winner Cliff Lee to the Phillies. Carrasco had just completed serving a five-game suspension for a fastball thrown at Kansas City's Billy Butler in 2011 (Carrasco missed all of 2012 following elbow ligament-replacement surgery)

Alex Rodriguez has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right quadriceps, leaving the New York Yankees without two of their most important players. Rodriguez joins injured catcher Jorge Posada on the DL. The Yankees were waiting for additional opinions on Posada's ailing throwing shoulder before determining whether he needs surgery. A three-time AL MVP, Rodriguez was sent for an MRI exam yesterday that revealed a Grade 2 strain. He was put on the DL for the first time since July 2000 with Seattle.

Tim Wakefield celebrated his 38th birthday getting a familiar result against Tampa Bay. Tim Wakefield pitched seven solid innings and David McCarty hit a three-run homer to lead the visiting Boston Red Sox over the Devil Rays, 6-3, last night. Wakefield (7-6) gave up three runs, four hits, four walks and struck out three to improve to 10-1 against Tampa Bay. Kevin Youkilis had a two-run double during a three-run fifth as the Red Sox rebounded from two straight losses to American League Central-leading Minnesota.

If Randy Johnson is hurt, he's not telling. Johnson failed to hold a four-run lead and was chased in the fourth inning of the Toronto Blue Jays' 10-5 victory over the visiting New York Yankees last night. Troy Glaus homered twice and Alex Rios tied a career high with four RBI for the Blue Jays. Alex Rodriguez and Jason Giambi hit back-to-back homers in the first for New York - helping Johnson (2-2) to a 4-0 lead - but the Big Unit allowed seven runs and nine hits in only 3 1/3 innings.

It looks as if help is finally coming to the Bronx. Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira and third baseman Kevin Youkilis could be coming off the disabled list in time for Friday's game vs. the Red Sox. "That's the plan," general manager Brian Cashman said Wednesday. "In Tex's case, he really needed a spring training because he didn't have one. With Kevin, it was more like knocking the rust off. It'll be good to have them back healthy and at the big-league level, where they belong.

Kevin Youkilis had some explaining to do when he walked into the Yankees clubhouse on Friday. The third baseman made the back page of the New York Post and the Daily News for telling reporters at his first day of spring training: "I'll always be a Red Sox. " "I was basically defining that, as a player, I'll be a Red Sox, and a White Sox, and a Yankee for life," Youkilis explained. "Three storied franchises. I'm excited to be part of this, and be with the Yankees. "Trust me, there's no way that was meant to say my heart is in Boston or anything like that.

Ricky Nolasco is the ace of the Miami Marlins, but he didn't do anything to earn the honor; it was dropped in his lap. The Marlins decided in the offseason that one year of looking as if they were competing was good enough and sent away starting pitchers Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, and Anibal Sanchez. (Not to mention shortstop Jose Reyes.) The purge has moved Nolasco to the top of the pitching heap in Miami, but it's one he'd rather not be perched upon. His $11.5 million salary is about one-quarter of the Marlins' entire payroll, and he requested a trade after the offseason moves.

KEVIN YOUKILIS agrees with Joba Chamberlain: Any tension between the new teammates is in the past. Youkilis took part in his first workout with the New York Yankees on Thursday and addressed past feuding with Chamberlain over tight fastballs. After Youkilis agreed to join the Yankees, the reliever left him a voice mail. Chamberlain said in January he had not heard back, then revealed earlier this month he had received a text. "You guys have written a lot about it, and I think it's just something you guys keep going on and on about," Youkilis told reporters Thursday.

The Red Sox traded away fan favorite Kevin Youkilis on Sunday, sending the slumping corner infielder to the White Sox for utilityman Brent Lillibridge and righthander Zach Stewart. Youkilis, 33, was told just days ago that emerging rookie Will Middlebrooks would be taking over at third, ending Youkilis' 81/2-year run with the Red Sox amid what is by far his worst professional season. The former all-star, who can play both corner infield spots, is a career .286 hitter with 133 homers and 563 RBIs.

BOSTON - Boston should be burning. The Patriots cannot win the Big One, the Bruins got dumped in the first round and the Celtics are a series from being dismantled. None of which matters, because the Red Sox stink. Or stunk. This weekend, the Sox visit Philadelphia, lately Boston's mirror city, scratching to reach .500, desperate to keep sight of the rest of the American League East, crippled by injury. Sure looks like Tito and the Genius knew what they were doing.
