AROUND THE WEB:

— Jets fans had some fun at the Patriots’ expense Thursday, flying a plane over Patriots training camp practice with a sign that read, “Cheaters look up.” However, they’ve got some problems with their own team to worry about.

Red Sox, Wright get better of Sale, White Sox

This one came out of nowhere.

Having won just three of their last 16 games, while sitting on the verge of a four-game sweep at the hands of the red-hot White Sox, Thursday night’s series finale didn’t seem promising for the Red Sox. Add in that John Farrell‘s team had to reverse its course against Chris Sale, one of the top pitchers in the American League, and the Sox best chance would seem for the rain to pick up steam from 7 p.m. and on.

But the rain did let up, resulting in just a 51-minute delay, and as it turned out the Red Sox were...

Sandoval day-to-day after HBP on strikeout

It was one of the weirdest plays you’ll ever see.

In the fourth inning, Pablo Sandoval struck out swinging against White Sox lefty Chris Sale on a tailing fastball inside, but while swinging and missing the pitch hit him in the left forearm.

The Red Sox announced he left the game with a left forearm contusion.

“Pablo is probably day-to-day. He’s sore right now,” manager John Farrell said. “That was a fastball that chased him. It look like it might hit him in the throat if [he] didn’t take it on the wrist on the swing. A scary moment. The scan here at the ballpark is clean. But, still day-to-day.”

The third baseman was the last out in the inning and...

Sandoval insists he hasn't gained weight

Following third baseman Pablo Sandoval leaving Wednesday’s game due to dehydration, manager John Farrell revealed Sandoval’s conditioning “continues to be addressed.”

Along the same lines, some scouts have said Sandoval has put on some weight this season, which has affected his defense at third base. He is listed at 5-foot-11, 255 pounds.

Sandoval was asked point-blank if he’s gained weight from after last season.

“No. I’m still the weight that I was last year the weight that I finished my season,” he said. “So I don’t get complaints about it. I have to keep working hard, yes I do, but I don’t focus about that, I focus about teamwork and try to do the best out there for my team.”

Following Sandoval’s comments, Farrell was asked the same question.

The manager said his weight...

Sox moves: Nava DFA'd, Machi activated

The Red Sox made a few roster moves prior to Thursday’s series finale with the White Sox, primarily to help the depleted Red Sox bullpen due to three consecutive poor starts by Red Sox starting pitching.

Daniel Nava was designated for assignment and left-hander Tommy Layne was optioned back to Triple-A Pawtucket. The corresponding moves had Jonathan Aro recalled and reliever Jean Machi activated after the Sox claimed him earlier in the week off waivers.

“We needed the space to get two fresh arms here,” manager John Farrell said. “Unfortunately for Daniel, whose story is an incredible one, the path that he’s traveled, there were some extended period of success for him here, but as...
