Valentine: No diagnosis yet on Pedroia

Manager Bobby Valentine and second baseman Dustin Pedroia both said that there is no update or formal diagnosis yet regarding the right thumb of the Red Sox second baseman, as the MRI Pedroia underwent this afternoon is still being scrutinized.

"I don't know how to classify it. We don't have a diagnosis," said Valentine. "It's weak enough or bruised enough that if something reoccurs, the same situation reoccurs, that maybe then it could get pretty serious. ... It's serious enough for him not to be in the lineup tonight, and maybe more than tonight, I'm not sure."

Valentine did reveal that Pedroia had been dealing with some level of discomfort in his thumb for about three weeks, and that the discomfort became acute during an at-bat when the player's bat jammed into the base of the thumb on Monday.

"The straw that broke the camel's back might have been the last at-bat, which was an inside fastball. But this might...

Report: Rangers sign Oswalt

According to a report in the Dallas Morning News, the Texas Rangers have signed free-agent pitcher Roy Oswalt to a contract. The length and financial details of the contract were not in the report.

Oswalt, 34, went 9-10 with a 3.69 ERA for the Phillies last season and owns a 159-93 record in 11 major-league seasons. The Red Sox were among several clubs rumored to be in the mix to sign Oswalt, who has pitched in the National League during his entire career. Oswalt reportedly worked out for the Sox last week, though it was believed by most that the Rangers and Cardinals were always the favorites to land the right-hander.

Report: Celtics may sit Allen for a game

In an interview with Jackie MacMullan of ESPNBoston.com, Doc Rivers said that he was thinking about sitting Ray Allen for a game during the Eastern Conference finals series against the Heat.

"It’s a tough call with him,” Rivers said Tuesday. “We’re trying to figure out a different minute rotation for him, maybe that will help him. We’re even considering sitting him for a game, getting him a longer rest and then playing him, and then sitting him for a game. We don’t know what the right thing is."

Allen has bone spurs in both ankles and may need surgery after the season. He has struggled mightily in the postseason, averaging 9.6 points per game while shooting only 39 percent. He scored six points on 1-of-7 shooting in 39 minutes in Monday's loss to Miami.

Patriots release WR Anthony Gonzalez

The Patriots announced several roster moves on Tuesday afternoon, including the release of veteran wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez and the signings of unrestricted free agent offensive lineman Jamey Richard, rookie free agent tight end Nick Melillo and seventh-round draft choice, defensive back Alfonzo Dennard (which had been previously reported).

The most intriguing name of the bunch is Gonzalez. The 27-year-old, who has been wracked by injuries over the last few years, was signed by the Patriots as an unrestricted free agent from Indianapolis on March 17. He was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the first round of the 2007 NFL draft out of Ohio State. In five seasons with the Colts, the 6-foot, 193-pound wide receiver started 12 of 40 games and had 99 career receptions for 1,307 yards and seven touchdowns.

Meanwhile, the Patriots added Richard and Melillo. Richard, 27, is a veteran of four seasons with the Colts after joining Indy...
