Farrell: 'Chuckle' at Cespedes trade rumors

Red Sox manager John Farrell, in an interview on SiriusXM’s MLB Network Radio, suggested that the notion that outfielder Yoenis Cespedes — acquired from the A’s at the trade deadline for Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes — is being shopped had promoted him to “chuckle a little bit.” Farrell said that Cespedes remains in the team’s plans for 2015.

“I did see some of the reports and the rumors that are out there and I can tell you this: For the two months that Yoenis was with us he was a main member of our lineup, his work ethic was strong and very consistent,” said Farrell. “We did talk about the potential of a shift to right field because of our configuration. But when you...

Sox' Castillo sidelined in Arizona Fall League

Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo, currently in the Arizona Fall League to get at-bats in preparation for an everyday big league role in 2015, left Monday’s game after two plate appearances due to a bruised hand/thumb from getting jammed while hitting. Castillo is considered day-to-day.

Castillo, who signed a contract in August that runs through 2020 for $72.5 million, is currently hitting .278 with a .333 OBP and .361 slugging mark with three doubles, three walks and six strikeouts in 39 plate appearances for the Surprise Saguaros. He’s up to a total of 125 plate appearances (39 in the AFL, 40 with the Red Sox in the big leagues, 46 in the minors after signing) with a goal of accumulating approximately 200 plate appearances by the time he concludes his first professional tour,...

Report: Pats acquire LB Ayers from Titans

According to Titans beat writer Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, the Patriots have traded for Titans linebacker Akeem Ayers, pending a physical. CBS’ Jason La Canfora adds the Patriots will also receive a seventh-round pick and give a sixth-rounder back to Tennessee.

Ayers was a 2011 second-round pick and started in 43 games during his first three seasons in the league, including totaling 66 tackles in 2012. He reportedly had offseason knee surgery on both knees and has only appeared in two games so far this season.

Lucic: 'Eventually they'll start going in'
By: DJ Bean

Inappropriate gestures aside, it’€™s been a weird start to the season for Milan Lucic.

The Bruins’€™ top left wing has had two different centers and three different right wings over seven games. In three of the first seven games, he’€™s played on a line that was different from the previous game. He’€™s also returning from offseason wrist surgery, which looks to be limiting him less and less as the games go on.

Still, numbers don’€™t lie. Lucic, traditionally a fast starter, has gone without a point in all but one game this season. He has no goals, with his two-point performance last week against the Canadiens remaining the only time he’€™s shown up on the scoresheet.

It appears that Seth Griffith will serve as Lucic and...

Connolly, Stork at practice; Revis not spotted

Offensive linemen Dan Connolly, Bryan Stork and Cameron Fleming were all present at the start of practice for the Patriots on Tuesday, while cornerback Darrelle Revis and defensive end Chandler Jones were not among those spotted at the workout, which was held in sweats and shells, according to reports.

Connolly and Stork have been dealing with head injuries the last couple of weeks, while Fleming has been on the shelf because of a finger problem. Special teamer Nate Ebner, who has also been missing with a finger injury for the last couple of weeks, was also spotted at practice.

On the other side, while Revis has had occasional hamstring issues over the course of the season, nothing has kept him from playing. It’s not known what Jones might be dealing with.
