Roster Update: Timlin, Crisp back

Mike Timlin was activated today, and says he’s healthy and ready to go. With his return, Chris Smith was shipped back to Pawtucket.

Coco Crisp came back from his suspension today, and promptly started in centerfield, with Jacoby Ellsbury in left. Manny Ramirez‘s legs must be hurting more than he is letting on, as he was the DH again.

Clay Buchholz will not be returning to the rotation in the near future, say the Sox. They are protecting his arm and his confidence, and may be trying to motivate him to improve that fastball. To be fair, Justin Masterson‘s style of pitching doesn’t leave much for him to work on. He just pounds the corners with that two-seamer, and needs to fine-tune his secondary pitches.
