In discussing reliever Koji Uehara's strained right pectoral muscle, Dave Dombrowski referenced Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez, who dealt with the unusual injury for a pitcher in 2014. Sanchez missed seven weeks that season.

With one week until the trade deadline, Dave Dombrowski's public stance is that Red Sox are doing a lot of listening -- they're "open-minded," he said -- but don't feel like they need to make any trades.

Mookie Betts had fluid drained from his knee two days ago, leading to diminished swelling and less discomfort when he tested it by running earlier today. But manager John Farrell said the Red Sox "don't fully expect [the fluid] to vanish," a sign that Betts might need a few days off during a brutal August in which team makes two 11-game road trips and has one off-day.

Believe it or not, it's conceivable Craig Kimbrel could rejoin the Red Sox by next week. He will throw off a mound again Wednesday, could go on a minor-league rehab assignment as soon as Saturday, and might not need more than one outing before he's ready, according to manager John Farrell. Kimbrel had minor knee surgery only two weeks ago.

Ramirez named AL Player of the Week

Red Sox 1B Hanley Ramirez takes home weekly honors in the AL for the period ending July 24. Ramirez batted .333 (7-for-21) with six runs scored, five home runs and 12 RBI over six games to claim his first Player of the Week nod since 2009.

Two weeks after having minor surgery on his knee, Craig Kimbrel threw about 20 pitches off a mound, as expected. The plan is for him to repeat this exercise later in the week, and if all goes well, manager John Farrell said Red Sox can discuss the next step, probably a short minor-league rehab assignment.

Now that Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza have been officially inducted, it's time to turn our attention to the 2017 candidates. Will any of these sluggers make it to Cooperstown in their first year on the ballot?

Would a Sale deal involve Sox for Sox?

Jim Bowden remains leery of the AL Cy Young favorite being dealt. But if White Sox GM Rick Hahn parts with Chris Sale, Bowden sees Boston as the most likely landing spot. Top trade targets/best fits (Insider)

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

Clubs talking with the Red Sox say they're still trying to do "something big." But for what high-end starter? Chris Sale? Sonny Gray? Mystery pitcher?
