Pats put Stallworth on IR, re-sign Branch

FOXBORO -- In a surprising move Tuesday, the Patriots placed receiver Donte' Stallworth on injured reserve with an ankle injury and released tight end Visanthe Shiancoe. In addition, the team released OL Tommie Draheim from the practice squad.

Stallworth, 32, was re-signed by the Patriots on Dec. 4 and played in Monday night’s win over Houston. He scored on his only reception in the game on a 63-yard touchdown pass from Tom Brady in the third quarter. He was tackled from behind and fell to the ground as he reached the ball over the goal line.

He remained in the game and there was no injury announcement. He also spoke to reporters after the game and there was no noticeable limp. The move raises speculation that Deion Branch could be returning to the Patriots. He was released in November but his locker and personal items remain intact. Shalise Manza Young...

Report: Yankees agree to deal with Youkilis

According to FoxSports.com's Ken Rosenthal, the Yankees have agreed to a one-year, $12 million deal with Kevin Youkilis. The deal is pending a physical.

The former Red Sox infielder had drawn interest from the Indians before Cleveland signed free agent cornerman Mark Reynolds to a one-year, $6 million deal. Youkilis is expected to serve as the Yankees' starting third baseman in the absence of Alex Rodriguez, who is slated to miss significant time after undergoing hip surgery.

After being traded from the Red Sox to the White Sox on June 24, the 33-year-old Youkilis hit .236 with a .771 OPS and 15 home runs in 344 plate appearances. With the Sox in '12, Youkilis hit .233 with a .692 OPS and four homers in 165 plate appearances.

The White Sox chose to to exercise Youkilis' $13 million club option for '13.

Terry: Doc 'is the Bill Belichick of basketball'

WALTHAM -- Jason Terry has been in Boston for a short time but he's seen enough of Doc Rivers and Bill Belichick to know there's a common thread. After practice Tuesday, Terry said that he sees a lot of Belichick's discipline in Rivers' coaching technique every day. 

"He's the Bill Belichick of basketball because of his execution of what he draws up in the timeouts, in practice," Terry said. "We go over it time and time again. And there's a big emphasis on doing things the right way, whether it's defensively doing our coverages or offensively, the little things. Setting screens, making sure you make the proper cut, just being focused on every single possession is so critical, like it is in football. That's why I say he is the Bill Belichick of basketball."

Terry, in his first season in Boston, knows that Rivers has been in Boston since 2004, and has been exposed to Belichick's coaching principles.

DiSarcina to manage Triple-A Pawtucket

According to a baseball source, former Angels shortstop, and Billerica native, Gary DiScarcina will be named the manager for the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox.

DiSarcina had been working in the Angels' front office after spending three seasons as manager of the Red Sox' short-season Single-A club in Lowell, and one year (2010) as the Sox' minor-league infield coordinator. Current Red Sox players Will Middlebrooks and Ryan Kalish are among those who highly-complimentary of DiSarcina, having played for him as members of the Spinners. (For an example of DiSarcina's work, see Alex Speier's column on Middlebrook's progression through the Red Sox' system.)

DiSarcina, who also served as the third-base coach for Italy in the 2006 World Baseball Classic, will replace Arnie Beyeler. Beyeler was promoted to the Red Sox' big league...

Doc Rivers: 'Rondo is our Tom Brady'

WALTHAM -- Doc Rivers had a special chance to go inside the Patriots game preparation minutes before kickoff Monday night. He learned a lot from the invitation from Patriots coach Bill Belichick. On Tuesday, he was asked about his experience and was asked if anyone on his team compares to Tom Brady. 

"Rondo is our Tom Brady, as far as being the point guard/quarterback," Rivers said after Tuesday's practice. "Kevin [Garnett] probably as far as all of the relationship stuff. Tom Brady has got to be right there [as one of the best in history]. It's surgical watching him play. Then to have that, plus the relationship with [Belichick], I don't know if there's been a better great quarterback relationship with their coach ever. Bill Walsh and Joe Montana would be the only other one that comes to mind for me. That's pretty neat. And they're so different as people. That's pretty cool."

Rivers was on the sideline with Mark Wahlberg...
