Sandoval (knee sprain) to DL, Rutledge added

After a terrific spring, it hasn’t been the start to the season Pablo Sandoval and the Red Sox had hoped for.

The switch-hitter is batting .213 in 13 games this season and after leaving Sunday’s game against the Orioles with a knee injury, Sandoval was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right knee sprain on Tuesday.

To fill his spot on the roster, Josh Rutledge has been added to the roster after starting the year on the disabled list with a hamstring injury.

With Sandoval down, this means Marco Hernandez and Rutledge will share the starts at third base, especially with Brock Holt on the DL.

In five rehab games between Triple-A Pawtucket (4 games) and Portland (1 game), Rutledge went 1-for-12 with a home run.

Rookie QB Watson says he's coming after Brady

Former Clemson quarterback and potential first-round pick Deshaun Watson certainly isn’t lacking confidence.

Appearing on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football Tuesday morning, Watson said he wants to be better than Tom Brady.

“If I’m blessed to stay healthy and play for a while, man, I’m chasing The GOAT,” Watson said. “I’m chasing Tom. I’m going six. That’s the big thing. I know it’s going to be tough, it’s going to be hard. I gotta have the right situation, have some luck on the way, but that’s what I’m chasing.”

This is a pretty big statement to make the week of the draft, but if a quarterback wants to truly be great, Brady certainly is the guy to chase.

During his career at Clemson he completed 814 of 1,207 passes for 10,168 yards with 90 touchdowns...

Schilling: Meant to hit almost all hitters did hit

TO LISTEN TO CURT SCHILLING, LOU MERLONI AND ROB BRADFORD ON THE BRADFO SHO PODCAST, CLICK HERE

Curt Schilling hit 52 batters in his major league career. Evidently, few were by accident.

Talking with Rob Bradford and Lou Merloni on the Bradfo Sho podcast, Schilling went into great detail how revenge should be enacted when a pitcher hits a batter. It is a scenario that brought into the news over the weekend because of Matt Barnes’ misplaced fastball near Manny Machado’s head, and one that Schilling explained he was well versed in.

“I hit very few guys I didn’t try to hit,” Schilling said. “I didn’t have enough of Pedro in me, but I had a little. There are some guys I did that to. But I never went above the shoulder. Ask anybody, getting hit by a baseball underneath the arm, in the...

Report: Mutual interest between Blount, Giants

A day after the Patriots signed restricted free agent running back Mike Gillislee thus all but ending LeGarrette Blount’s tenure in New England, another team has emerged as a likely destination for him.

According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, there is mutual interest between the Giants and Blount. This could even come together before the draft on Thursday.

The Giants are said to be in the market for a running back and even connected to Adrian Peterson, but once he reportedly signed with the Saints, it seems their attention has shifted to Blount.

Blount is coming of a season where he led the NFL in touchdowns with 18. Even though he is 30 years old, it seems like he has something left in the tank.

In 3.5 seasons with the Patriots, the running back ran...

Farm Report: Rutledge goes 0-3 with Portland

Here is what happened in the Red Sox farm system on Monday.

— Offensively, the Sea Dogs had three players with multi-hit games — Aneury Tavarez, Danny Mars and Tzu-Wei Lin — all recording two hits.
