Report: LBJ, Wade, Bosh meet in Miami

According to a report on ESPN.com, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh met over the weekend in Miami to examine the possibility of the three playing together for the Miami Heat. 

 

A source labeled Miami as the new frontrunner to land all three prized free agents but also warned that James was "non-committal" with the free agency period officially starting at Thursday at 12:01 a.m. 

 

James, according to sources in the report, has not ruled out staying in Cleveland and is determined to hear what the Chicago Bulls have to offer when they make their pitch later this week.

 

In order for the Heat to sign all three players, they would need to trade Michael Beasley to a team with salary-cap room, thus not having to take back a contract. That would allow the Heat to offer James, Bosh and Wade each the 2010-11 maximum...

Sox likely to DL Martinez, call up Molina

According to a source familiar with the situation, the Red Sox are likely to place catcher Victor Martinez on the disabled list on Tuesday and to promote catcher Gustavo Molina from Triple-A Pawtucket. Another source said that a final determination will not be made unti Tuesday.

 

Molina, 28, is hitting .239 with a .292 OBP, .418 slugging mark and .710 OPS in 21 games for the PawSox. Molina is in his 11th professional season, and his fifth organization. He has appeared in 19 big-league games, batting .118/.162/.147/.309. He is unrelated to the three Molina siblings who are currently in the majors.

 

Martinez is hitting .289/.344/.480/.824 with nine homers and 38 RBI for the Sox this year. Since May 19, he is hitting .371/.424/.619/1.043 with four homers and 19 RBI in 30 games. The 31-year-old has played in 66 of the team's 77 games this year.

Sox add Patterson to roster, designate Castro

The Red Sox added second baseman/outfielder Eric Patterson on their major league roster. In order to clear a spot for him, the team designated left-hander Fabio Castro for assignment.

 

The Sox acquired Patterson from the Oakland A's in a trade on Saturday, dealing away left-hander Fabian Williamson for the 27-year-old. For more on that deal, click here.

 

Castro has now been called up twice by the Sox, but has yet to pitch in a game in the majors this year. He is 3-5 with a 6.65 ERA for Triple-A Pawtucket this year.

DL ruled out for Buchholz, not Martinez

Injured Red Sox players Dustin Pedroia, Clay Buchholz and Victor Martinez were examined on Monday.

 

Pedroia, already on the 15-day disabled list for a non-displaced fracture of the navicular bone in his left foot, had his diagnosis confirmed. He will not need surgery or the insertion of a pin into his foot. The Sox suggested that a normal timetable for return from such an injury is six weeks.

 

Buchholz' injury was described as a strained left hamstring. The Sox will not have him pitch in the coming week (in a normal five-man turn of the rotation, he would have been scheduled to pitch on Saturday), but the team does not anticipate that he will land on the disabled list after injuring himself while running the bases.

 

Martinez was diagnosed initially as having a fracture of the distal phalanx bone on the tip of his left thumb after a pair of foul balls clipped him. While the Sox were hoping that he...
