The Boston Red Sox will reactivate pitcher Dennis (Oil Can) Boyd today and pay him for the time he was on suspension with personal problems.
A statement released by the Red Sox said that Boyd will be subject to a counseling and support program for the rest of the season.
The problems began for Boyd, who has an 11-6 record, when he threw a tantrum and stormed out of the Red Sox clubhouse July 10 after learning that he would not be on the American League All-Star team.
On July 16, he had an altercation with police outside his home, and the next day he entered the University of Massachusetts Medical Center for tests and observation. He was there for a week.
