Jarron SaltalamacchiaRed Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia hads tests at a New York hospital to determine whether he has appendicitis, but it was determined he did not, the Boston Globe reports. Instead, the Red Sox are calling his ailment a "stomach illness."

Saltalamacchia was scheduled to catch Red Sox starter Tim Wakefield, but was scratched, forcing Jason Varitek to catch Wakefield for the first time in several years. Varitek is actually wearing a first baseman's mitt to catch the knuckleballer. In the past, Varitek has struggled catching Wakefield's knuckleball.

During the first weeks of the season, both St. Louis' Matt Holliday and the White Sox's Adam Dunn missed time after undergoing appendectomies.
