Sox trade Delcarmen to Rockies

BALTIMORE-- The Red Sox have traded reliever Manny Delcarmen and cash to the Colorado Rockies in exchange for minor league RHP Chris Balcom-Miller.

 

The Sox were open to trading Delcarmen prior to the July 31 trade deadline, but felt that the return for Ramon Ramirez was greater. Ramirez was dealt to the Giants on July 31 for minor league RHP Dan Turpen.

 

Delcarmen appeared in 48 games for the Sox in 2010, posting a 3-2 record with an ERA of 4.70. Balcom-Miller made 19 starts for the Rockies' Single-A club in Asheville this season, recording a 6-7 record with a 3.31 ERA and 117 strikeouts against just 19 walks.

 

 

Balcom-Miller has been assigned to the Red Sox' Single-A affiliate in Greenville.

Report: Spikes in 'embarrassing situation'

The agent for Patriots rookie linebacker Brandon Spikes told the Boston Herald that his client is in "an embarrassing situation" after a sex tape involving the second-round pick surfaced on the internet.

 

“It’s an embarrassing situation for Brandon,” Terry Watson told the Herald. “It certainly doesn’t reflect the kind of person that he is.”

 

The Patriots declined to comment. 

 

The story began to surface on Monday night, when an emailer offered the video to Deadspin.com for $1,500. The website refused to pay, but the video found its way to several sites on the internet.

Edelman, Wheatley missing from practice
By: DJ Bean

Missing from Patriots' Tuesday practice were receiver Julian Edelman, cornerbacks Leigh Bodden, Terrence Wheatley, Kyle Arrington and Bret Lockett, running back Chris Taylor, safety Brandon McGowan, offensive linemen Logan Mankins and Nick Kaczur, defensive linemen Brandon Deaderick and Darryl Richard, and defensive end/outside linebacker Jermaine Cunningham.

 

Among those in shorts were tight end Aaron Hernandez and nose tackle Ron Brace. The notable subtractions are Chris Taylor and Deaderick, while Myron Pryor returned to the field.

 

Rosters must be cut down to 75 players by 4 p.m., so some of the players may be off the field due to their impending departure and not necessarily due to injury.

Patterson, Saltalamacchia rejoin Sox

BALTIMORE -- Outfielder Eric Patterson and catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia have rejoined the Red Sox in Baltimore after concluding their rehab assignments with Triple-A Pawtucket. Patterson, who went on the disabled list on Aug. 17 (retroactive to Aug. 16) with a neck strain, went 4-for-17 with two doubles and triple during his rehab stint with the PawSox. Saltalamacchia, who went on the D.L. on Aug. 19 (retroactive to Aug. 16) due to a right leg infection, was 5-for-15 with two doubles and a homer in his four games in Pawtucket.

 

While both players are in Baltimore on Tuesday, the Sox are expected to wait until Wednesday to activate them, as the major league roster limit grows from 25 to 40 players on Sept. 1.
