Source: Pedroia will return to lineup Tuesday

According to a team source, the plan is for Dustin Pedroia to return to the Red Sox' lineup Tuesday in the team's series-opener against the Orioles at Fenway Park.

Pedroia has been out of action since leaving the Sox' May 28 game with what was later diagnosed as a slight tear in the adductor muscle in his right thumb. He had originally injured the thumb in the seventh inning of the Red Sox' May 2 game against the A's, with the second baseman fouling off a pitch against Oakland reliever Ryan Cook. Initially, X-rays didn't show any damage, but an MRI conducted following the Memorial Day game revealed the tear.

Pedroia took batting practice with a specially-designed brace both Saturday and Sunday in Toronto with no ill effects. He told reporters after the BP sessions that his hope was to play Tuesday, with the last hurdle coming Monday when he would receive another examination.

Tuesday, the Red Sox and Pedroia will be facing Orioles' starting...

Sox draft SS Marrero with top pick

The Red Sox selected Arizona State shortstop Deven Marrero with their first pick (No. 24 overall) in the 2012 draft, grabbing a player whose glove suggests that he is a future big league shortstop but who suffered through a down year as a college junior that led to a late slide in the draft.

The presence of Marrero on their board was something of a stunner, given that he was projected to go as high as No. 8 overall to the Pirates. His slide reflected a down year as a junior, as he hit .284/.340/.436 with four homers. Still, he’s considered one of the most likely players to project as a big league starting shortstop, a role in which he could end up playing opposite second base from Dustin Pedroia -- the last shortstop whom the Red Sox selected out of Arizona State with their top pick, having done so with their current second baseman in 2004.

"Deven is definitely, definitely in a position where I feel like he’s not that far off...

Chiarelli, Neely: Tuukka can be a No. 1
By: DJ Bean

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli and president Cam Neely weighed in Monday on the likelihood that Tim Thomas will not play next season. The veteran goalie posted on Facebook Sunday that he will spend the next year focusing on "friends, family and faith."

"I read what he said on Facebook, and it was pretty much -- not verbatim -- but it was pretty much what he told me," Chiarelli said to John Bishop of BostonBruins.com. "No update beyond what I said last week. So going forward, we're going to operate on the assumption that he will not be playing this year."

Chiarelli also reiterated his confidence in Tuukka Rask taking over as the starter and added that Anton Khudobin is capable of being the No. 2. Neely agreed.

Said Neely: "It certainly puts us in a situation we probably didn't think we would be [in] when the season ended. Having said that, we've got to prepare for Tim not playing for us, and we'll...

Rivers: C's preparing for Bosh return
By: DJ Bean

With reports that Heat forward Chris Bosh could return from injury for Tuesday's Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said on a conference call Monday that the team is preparing as though he'll be in.

"We have every game," Rivers said. "You don't have to do anything different. We've prepared every game like Bosh is going to play. Eventually he will, and maybe tomorrow."

Rivers said that Bosh's presence will "change the way we have to play," adding that big men Greg Steimsma or Ryan Hollins will play more after the two combined for just one minute in Boston's overtime victory in Game 4.

Asked about the Celtics' aging core, Rivers noted that he has more confidence in this year's squad than the team that fell to the Heat in the second round a season ago. 

"I look at this year's team and last year's team, and last year's team would have been out of the playoffs already,...

Troy Brown voted into Pats Hall of Fame

The Patriots announced Monday that wide receiver and return man Troy Brown has been voted by fans as the 18th player and 19th member to enter the Patriots Hall of Fame. Brown beat out fellow finalists Fred Marion and Bill Parcells for the honor.

According to the team, Brown earned the highest percentage of votes for any candidate, breaking last year’s record set by Drew Bledsoe. Brown joins Bledsoe as the second player to be selected by the fans into the Patriots Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility.

“Troy Brown will always be special to me, as he was my sweetheart’s favorite player during his career,” said Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft. “Clearly, a lot of Patriots fans shared her sentiment and I am proud that we will honor Troy with his induction into the Patriots Hall of Fame this fall.

“To me, Troy was the consummate Patriot who always put team goals ahead of...
