Red Sox prospects Jose Iglesias and Ryan Lavarnway were named to the Rising Stars Game in the Arizona Fall League.
After spending most of this season in Double-A Portland (a season that was interrupted by a broken index finger suffered on a hit by pitch), Iglesias is hitting .294 with a .324 OBP and .294 slugging mark while playing shortstop for the Peoria Javelinas. This is Iglesias' second straight year in the AFL, as he made his pro debut there last fall. The Sox wanted him to make up some of the at-bats he lost while sidelined for roughly two months with the occult fracture of his finger. The 20-year-old hit .295 with a .339 OBP, .379 slugging mark and .718 OPS in the minors this year while flashing his trademark outstanding defense (when able to play the field). He committed seven errors in 70 games at shortstop.

The Patriots confirmed that guard Logan Mankins has returned to the team. While there has not yet been a roster move to add Mankins, head coach Bill Belichick said that he expected that move to take place today.
"It’s good to have him back with the team. He’s part of the team now," Belichick said in a conference call, praising the two-time Pro Bowler for his toughness, intelligence and dependability. "You just can’t have too many guys like that on your football team. We’re glad he’s back."
Asked about Mankins' physical condition, Belichick suggested only that the team would treat the offensive lineman on a "day-to-day" basis. The Patriots head coach declined to discuss the degree to which he had been in touch with Mankins during his holdout.
