Red Sox/Os finale

*As I reported last night, there’s no timetable on Brian Roberts’ return to the lineup. He said that he has not discussed surgery as an option and declined to speculate on a target date. He did clarify it is his back, not his stomach.

*Mike Gonzalez started a throwing program Saturday. Those typically last three weeks and then he will need a rehab assignment. If no setbacks, he would theoretically be ready by the end of May.

*Brad Bergesen said he felt last night’s start was better than the previous three he made up here, saying he was more relaxed. At times he still got away from what he does best, but it’s good to see him make improvement. The Orioles need him.

*Kevin Youkilis was a late scratch for the Sox with a sore left groin.
