According to a major league source, Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is on track to be activated from the 15-day disabled list on Thursday night, with corner infielder Mauro Gomez being sent back to Triple-A Pawtucket to clear a roster spot for the three-time All-Star.
Pedroia, who earlier this month thought he might be on the disabled list for a few weeks to a right thumb injury, will beat that timetable by returning on the first day of his eligibility to come off the disabled list. In 74 games, he's hitting .266/.326/.400/.726 with six homers and six steals.
Gomez went 1-for-4 on Wednesday as a one-day fill-in for David Ortiz as designated hitter. On the season, he's now hitting .300 with a .723 OPS in nine games spanning three call-ups. He's hitting .317/.371/.634/1.005 with 20 homers in Triple-A.

After doing yoga with students at the Kennedy School at Franciscan Hospital Thursday, Bruins forward Daniel Paille, the team's union representative, discussed the current state of collective bargaining negotiations. The NHL's CBA is set to expire Sept. 15, but Paille spoke optimistically of next season starting on time.
"Negotiations seem to be moving fairly well right now," Paille said. "Right now, our main focus is just to start a season. We know it's a process, but it shouldn't be too bad. Everyone's main goal is to start the season."
The league's first offer to the NHL Players' Association was surprising to many, as it called for an 11 percent giveback of revenues from the players, a maximum of five-year contracts, no more arbitration, 10 required years of NHL experience before unrestricted free agency, and the end of three-year entry level deals in favor of five-year pacts.
"It's a proposal, and we were...
Red Sox president and CEO Larry Lucchino was a guest of the Dennis & Callahan show on Thursday. Lucchino was asked if he believes there is a possibility general manager Ben Cherington could make a bold move before the July 31 trade deadline.
"Yes, I do," Lucchino said. "I think Ben feels empowered to do it, I think he has the capacity to do it, when he took the job and in fact since then we have talked frequently about boldness. You've got to know when to be bold and when to be somewhat conservative and methodical. This is a club has been built on bold moves over the years, going back to the Nomar Garciaparra trade as one example. There should be no doubt in anyone's mind that Ben Cherington and the entire baseball operations are all pointed to working hard to July 31."
There were reports Wednesday that the Marlins had spoken to the Red Sox about a possible trade for Carl Crawford. Cherington told FoxSports.com that "...
In search of depth at the shooting guard position after Ray Allen's departure to the Heat, the Celtics have shown interest in Bucks swingman Carlos Delfino and remain in the hunt for Mickael Pietrus, according to a Comcast report.
Following surgeries on both shoulders, Avery Bradley is doubtful to be ready for the start of the season, leaving newly signed free agent Jason Terry and second-year summer league star E'Twaun Moore, whose contract remains non-guaranteed pending a decision by the C's this week, as the only two-guard options on the roster.
The 29-year-old Delfino averaged 9.0 points (40.2 FG%, 36.0 3P%, 79.2 FT%), 3.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.5 steals in Milwaukee. In seven NBA seasons, including stops in Detroit and Toronto, he has averaged 7.7 points (40.0 FG%, 36.2 3P%, 74.9 FT%), 3.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.9 steals. Delfino required sports hernia surgery in early May but reportedly plans to play for his native Argentina in the...
Jets receiver Santonio Holmes, who was widely criticized for his selfishness and lack of production during the team's late-season collapse in 2011, wants to focus on the positive this year -- and he wants the media to do the same.
"If you guys want to be, and this is for the New York media, if you guys want to be a part of our team and want to feel so important, be there to support us, not to try to break us down," Holmes said on an NFL.com podcast (as reported by the New York Daily News). "Because [there’s] not one day that we all step in that locker room and we try to break each other down, that we talk bad about the way that person played because it affects the team the way one person plays if they don’t play to perfection.”
Holmes, who caught 51 passes for 654 yards last season, was referred to by one teammate as a "cancer" in the locker room and was benched in the season-ending loss to the Dolphins...
