Left-hander Miley 'excited' to join Red Sox

After a few days of it first being reported, the Red Sox‘ trade with the Diamondbacks became official on Friday.

The Red Sox acquired All-Star left-handed pitcher Wade Miley from the Diamondbacks in exchange for right-handed pitchers Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster and minor league infielder Raymel Flores.

Miley, 28, was the Diamondbacks’ Opening Day starter last season, and in 2012 was a NL All-Star, finishing second in the NL Rookie of the Year voting to Bryce Harper. The left-hander wasn’t completely surprised by the trade and is looking forward to coming to Boston.

“I’m excited about the opportunity,” Miley said on a conference call Friday night. “I kind...

Sox get Spruill in separate trade with D-Backs

After agreeing to a trade with the Diamondbacks, reportedly on Wednesday night for left-handed starter Wade Miley, the two teams were not done there.

Friday it was announced the Red Sox acquired Arizona right-handed reliever Zeke Spruill in exchange for minor league right-handed pitcher Myles Smith.

Smith spent last season with Single-A Greenville, going 5-10 with one save, a 5.82 ERA, 73 strikeouts, and 62 walks allowed in 26 outings, including 12 starts. He was a fourth-round pick in the 2013 draft.

Spruill, 25, spent the majority of 2014 with the Diamondbacks’€™ Triple-A Reno affiliate, going 3-7 with a 6.04 ERA and 71 strikeouts in 79.0 innings over 28 outings (11 starts). He was...

Browner avoids NFL fine for hit on Green

It won’t bring back Devin McCourty‘s negated pick-6 but Patriots fans will be happy to know that Brandon Browner won’t be fined for his hit on Ladarius Green that laid out the Chargers tight end before a national audience.

When the league handed out its fines, this week, Browner’s name was not on the list of those violating NFL safety guidelines.

With Green out cold at midfield, two flags came in late, penalizing Browner for unnecessary roughness for the shoulder blow to the chest that made contact with Green’s chin. The 15-yard penalty wiped out McCourty’s interception that was returned for a touchdown. Green left the game with a concussion.

The decision by the NFL doesn’t come as a complete surprise as NFL vice president of officiating...

Easley (knee) out, Hightower questionable

FOXBORO — Rookie defensive lineman Dominique Easley will miss his third game of the season Sunday after being ruled out on Friday’s injury report released by the team. Easley has been dealing with a nagging knee injury.

Rob Ninkovich (heel) continues to headline the limited players, as this is the first time he’s appeared on the injury report this season. Chandler Jones (hip) and Dont’a Hightower (shoulder), who both missed Sunday’s game, were limited. Offensive lineman Cameron Fleming (ankle), who has missed the last three games, was also limited. Julian Edelman (thigh) was again limited, as has been the case in recent weeks.

Edelman, Ninkovich, Chandler Jones and Dont’a Hightower are among those listed officially as questionable. Hightower missed last...

Seidenberg not disciplined for Toews incident
By: DJ Bean

Dennis Seidenberg did not receive a phone call from the NHL‘€™s Department of Player Safety and will not be disciplined for a play that left Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews injured Thursday night.

“It’€™s definitely good news and definitely a relief not to get suspended or fined or any of that stuff,”€ Seidenberg said after Friday’€™s practice.

Toews was chasing a puck into the corner after missing an open net during a second-period power play when, in an attempt to battle for position, Seidenberg knocked the Blackhawks star off the puck, sending him face-first into the boards.

Seidenberg, who was assessed a boarding minor for the play, maintained Friday that...

While many are calling for those penalties to be review able, Florio notes that the calls likely would NOT have been overturned due to the ways the rules are written.
