Uehara to undergo more tests; Betts cleared

DETROIT -- Red Sox closer Koji Uehara has flown back to Boston to undergo further testing on his right wrist. Uehara had a CAT scan performed Sunday as a precautionary step, despite decreased swelling in his wrist.

Manager John Farrell had not gotten the results back after Sunday's 7-2 win over the Tigers as the results were still being reviewed by team doctors. Uehara will go through a full exam back in Boston.

"This isn't what we had hoped to hear today," Farrell said. "But the fact that there's the persisting symptoms even after there was some reduction in swelling, we've got to check him thoroughly."

In other injury news, Mookie Betts played all nine innings for Double-A Portland and went 2-for-4 with a home run in a 10-3 loss. Betts suffered no ill effects of playing a full game and has been cleared to return to the Red Sox's lineup Tuesday.

As for starter Clay Buchholz, he will see Dr. James Andrews for a checkup Wednesday. The righty hasn't started throwing, but will travel with the team to Miami before seeing Dr. Andrews in Pensacola, Fla.

"We would hope that at that point there would be clearance to put a ball back in his hands," Boston manager John Farrell said before Sunday's series finale against the Tigers. "This isn't a result of any plateauing. He feels good physically, the strengthening and all the exercise he's gone through as anticipated. This is more clearance to begin a throwing program."

Hanley, Panda sit out finale; Pedroia back to Boston

Left fielder Hanley Ramirez is still experiencing swelling and soreness in his left foot. He is unable to put "any pressure" on the foot with any kind of hitting and remains day to day.

Neither Pablo Sandoval nor Ramirez played Sunday, but Farrell expects both to return Tuesday for the opener of a two-game series in Miami. Farrell does not anticipate a stint on the disabled list for Ramirez or Sandoval.

Second baseman Dustin Pedroia has returned to Boston. He initially injured his right hamstring in late June and went on the 15-day disabled list July 25. While he was slated to resume baseball activities this week, Pedroia is still strengthening the hamstring and will not travel to Miami. There is no timetable for his return.
