Report: Sox put Matsuzaka on waivers

Fresh off a strong seven-inning start in his return from the disabled list, the Red Sox have put Daisuke Matsuzaka on waivers, according to ESPN's Buster Olney. Matsuzaka will be a free agent after this season.

If Matsuzaka clears waivers, the Sox can trade him to any team by the Aug. 31 deadline for players to be eligible for the postseason. If he is claimed, the Sox could either work out a deal with that team or pull him back, although it's notable that Matsuzaka has a no-trade clause.

Matsuzaka has battled injuries all season. He is 1-3 this season in six starts, but he gave up just five hits and one unearned run against the Royals on Monday in his first outing since early July.

Hernandez humbled by 'surreal' contract

FOXBORO -- In an outpouring of emotion and appreciation, Aaron Hernandez gave thanks to the Kraft family and the Patriots organization Monday night hours after agreeing to a five-year, $40 million extension that will keep him in a Patriots uniform through 2018. 

"This is probably one of the best days of my life," Hernandez said before the annual team gala at Gillette Stadium. "I'll remember this day forever."

As part of the contract extension, Hernandez will receive a $12.5 million signing bonus, bringing guaranteed money in the deal to $16.4 million. The money will come in handy as Hernandez acknowledged he has a child on the way. 

"It's surreal. Is it really true?," Hernandez said when asked what his reaction was to the news this morning when the deal was finalized. 

As part of the deal, Hernandez donated $50,000 to the Myra Kraft Foundation, the organization Monday night's gala benefits...
