The 33-year-old Light, who was selected in the second round of the 2001 draft by the Patriots, has spent his entire 10-year career with New England, and has been a part of three Super Bowl champions.

CHICAGO -- With the acquisition of Erik Bedard, the Red Sox suddenly feature a surplus of starters on their roster. The 32-year-old left-hander, who will likely join his new club in Boston on Monday, will be added to the quintet of Josh Beckett, Jon Lester, John Lackey, Tim Wakefield and Andrew Miller.
The Sox have yet to decide what Bedard's arrival will mean for the rotation over the longer haul. For the short term, however, the Sox are halfway through a stretch of 20 games in as many days. That being the case, the Sox may insert Bedard into the rotation as a sixth starter for the short term.
"We do have a good idea of when he’s pitching. But because we all haven’t had a chance to discuss it among ourselves, I don’t want to say anything publicly," Sox general manager Theo Epstein said. "I’ll let [manager Terry Francona] talk about the rotation. From talking to Tito about it, I think we’re of the same...

CHICAGO -- If not for the back injury to Clay Buchholz, the Red Sox might have had a different view of the 2011 trade deadline. But with the talented 26-year-old on the disabled list since mid-June due to a back issue that has not healed at a typical pace for a common muscle strain, the Sox were in a position where they felt compelled to make a deal for a starting pitcher.
That compulsion reflects the uncertain outlook for Buchholz. The right-hander is scheduled to see Dr. Robert Watkins in Los Angeles on Monday. And while Buchholz must now remain out for at least two more weeks (he was moved to the 60-day disabled list to clear a roster spot for Bedard), the team had to move based on the possibility that his time on the sidelines will persist well beyond that.
"Clearly, we have some concern for Clay. It’s been almost a couple months now, which is longer than we expected it to be," said Epstein. "We’re still...
CHICAGO -- Though the baseball world's attention was turned to the trade deadline, the Red Sox remained focused on the field in Chicago. The team closed out its best July in franchise history, claiming a 5-3 victory over the White Sox to improve its July record to 20-6, good for a .769 winning percentage that is the best in franchise history for July.
Dustin Pedroia had the key blow, delivering a two-run single in the seventh inning to turn a 3-2 deficit into a 4-3 advantage. Adrian Gonzalez later collected his second double for an insurance run; he has a 10-game hitting streak during which he is hitting .534.
