Red Sox update

The disappointing Red Sox are limping to the finish line without many players expected to be a part of the nucleus of a playoff team. Center fielder Coco Crisp's season is over after having surgery to repair a finger that he fractured at Camden Yards. Shortstop Alex Gonzalez is away from the team for personal reasons. Closer Jonathan Papelbon (right shoulder), who had 35 saves and 0.92 ERA, has been shut down. Manny Ramirez (patellar tendinitis in right knee) has just one plate appearance since Sept. 9, but he could return tonight. His absence from the lineup has not affected David Ortiz, who has seven homers and 16 RBIs in September and a club-record 54 homers overall. The Red Sox are 13-2 against the Orioles this season, including 6-0 at Fenway Park.
