Celtics re-sign Dooling, add Collins

The Celtics formally announced Tuesday that Keyon Dooling has re-signed with the team. The C's also announced the additions of veteran center Jason Collins along with guards Jamar Smith and Dionte Christmas. The deals for Smith and Christmas are not guaranteed. There was no word yet on a new deal for Jeff Green, who agreed to terms in early July on a four-year contract for a reported $36 million.

Dooling and Collins both signed one-year deals for the minimum, bringing the total number of guaranteed contracts for the 2012-13 season to 12 players, not counting Green. Smith, Christmas and second-round pick Kris Joseph will be in training camp on deals that are not fully guaranteed.

Dooling averaged four points in 46 games for the Celtics last season, but he emerged as a key locker-room presence and was a part of the playoff rotation. The 7-foot Collins is an 11-year veteran who provides low-post defense.

Lineup: Shoppach behind plate for Beckett

Kelly Shoppach, whose name has been mentioned in trade rumors, is back behind the plate for the Sox who take on the Tigers at Fenway. The non-waiver trade deadline is 4 p.m., which may be an indication that Shoppach will not be moved. Another player whose name has been floated is pitcher Josh Beckett, who is scheduled to be on the mound.

Cody Ross is also back in the lineup and playing right field. Ryan Sweeney injured his hand in Monday's win over the Tigers after he punched a door following an 0-for-4 performance.

Sox get Breslow for Albers, Podsednik

According to an industry source, the Red Sox have acquired left-hander Craig Breslow from the Diamondbacks. In exchange, according to Jack Magruder of Fox Sports Arizona (via twitter), the Sox will send right-hander Matt Albers and outfielder Scott Podsednik.

Breslow, who was with the Sox in 2006-07, is 2-0 with a 2.70 ERA in 40 games (43 1/3 innings) this year. He has 42 strikeouts and 13 walks. He features similar numbers against both right-handed (.226/.314/.366/.680) and left-handed (.243/.260/.400/.660) hitters.

Podsednik hit .387/.409/.484/.893 in 19 big league games with the Red Sox. Since a June DL stint, he's been in Triple-A Pawtucket, where he's hitting .281/.330/.360/.690.

Albers is 2-0 with a 2.29 ERA, 25 strikeouts and 15 walks in 39 1/3 innings this year. The 29-year-old was 4-4 with a 4.73 ERA in 64 2/3 innings with 68 punchouts and 31...

Rangers 'definitely' out on Beckett

According to a major league source, the Red Sox and Rangers "definitely" won't revisit the possibility of a deal that would send right-hander Josh Beckett to Texas prior to Tuesday's 4 p.m. deadline for non-waiver trades. There is a possibility that the Rangers could re-engage the Red Sox next month, since Beckett's hefty contract (he is still owed approximately $37 million through the end of 2014) makes it extremely unlikely that a team would claim him off of waivers.

Beckett (5-9, 4.57 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound for the Sox tonight against the Tigers. Major league sources characterize the possibility of a deal involving the right-hander as "unlikely."

Bowden: Sox not eager to deal Beckett

Former MLB general manager and current ESPN MLB analyst Jim Bowden appeared on the Dennis and Callahan show Tuesday morning to share his thoughts as the trade deadline looms at 4 p.m.

Bowden, a Boston native who served as a general manager for the Reds from 1992 to 2003 and the Nationals from 2004 to 2009, said from his recent conversations with Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington, he hasn’t got the sense that the first-year GM is eager to trade struggling pitcher Josh Beckett.

“I didn’t get the sense he was eager to deal him,” Bowden said of Cherington. “I think that the Red Sox are pretty cerebral looking at he’s 32 years old. I don’t think they think he’s in decline just because his strikeout ratio is the lowest of his career at 6.8 per nine [innings]. They’d like to get him straightened out and have a good second half.

“From what I understand, and I’ve talked to most...
