Draft signing deadline looms for Sox

The Red Sox have until the end of Monday to sign players whom they selected in the June amateur draft. As of Sunday night, the team had yet to sign four of its top six picks: supplemental first rounder Anthony Ranaudo (RHP), second rounder Brandon Workman (RHP), third rounder Sean Coyle (SS) and fourth rounder Garin Cecchini (projected as a 3B), in no small part because all are believed to be seeking bonuses in excess of Major League Baseball's slot recommendations for their picks.

 

Signs are pointing towards the Sox signing Coyle (who is flying to Boston on Monday to take a physical and negotiate with the team) and Cecchini, while the situations with college right-handers Ranaudo and Workman are murkier. For details of where the Sox stand with all four players, click here.

Burgess: 'Personal situation' reason for delay

FOXBORO — Derrick Burgess said it was a personal matter and not the possibility of retirement that kept him away from the first two-plus weeks of training camp, and now he’s fully committed to be a part of the Patriots going forward.

The 32-year-old, who had five sacks last season with the Patriots, said it was a “personal situation” that arose at the end of July that prevented him from reporting to Foxboro for the start of training camp. It had been reported that Burgess was possibly thinking about retirement, but he shot down that idea Sunday afternoon after his first day of training camp practices.

“I just had a personal situation going on,” said Burgess. “I had to take time to take care of [some things], and me and Bill [talked] about it, and he just told me to take my time and get my stuff together.

“It was basically some personal matters I had to take care of.”...

Sox head home with another loss

Rangers starter C.J. Wilson allowed just one run in 7 2/3 innngs, putting the finishing touches on one of the most dominant seasons against the Red Sox in the past two decades, leading Texas to a 7-3 victory. Wilson went 3-0 with a 0.86 ERA against Boston this year, the lowest ERA by a pitcher against the Sox since 1991.

 

Through six innings, Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka nearly kept up with Wilson, allowing just one run through the first six frames while striking out eight. But he was pulled after allowing another run in the seventh, and reliever Manny Delcarmen promptly gave up a three-run homer to put the Rangers ahead, 5-0, and effectively put the game out of reach for the Sox.

 

Though the Sox rallied for three runs and forced Wilson from the game with two outs in the bottom of the eighth, a rally that was highlighted by Darnell McDonald's two-run homer, Sox relievers Dustin Richardson and Michael Bowden then...

Pedroia: 'Good enough'
By: DJ Bean

PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- Speaking after the conclusion of his two-game rehab stint with Triple A Pawtucket Sunday, Dustin Pedroia spoke with a sense of urgency when touching on the subject of how he feels and whether he saw enough at-bats prior to Tuesday's return to the lineup. 

 

"Good enough," Pedroia said of whether he was satisfied with his rehabilitation. "We don't have time for [making sure everything's perfect]. We're in a pennant race. I've got to try to get back in there, and I'll figure it out."

 

Pedroia, who has been out since June 25 with a broken bone in his left foot, added that he hasn't "really been 100 percent all year."

 

The 2008 American League MVP went 1-for-6 in two rehab games, playing second base on Saturday and serving as the designated hitter on Sunday. His main focus now is returning to the team as it makes a push for the playoffs.

Delgado leaves game with back/hip
By: DJ Bean

PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- PawSox first baseman Carlos Delgado left the team's 3-1 victory over the Buffalo Bisons on Sunday after three innings due to tightness in his lower left back and hip area. Delgado was originally scheduled to have the day off Sunday but requested he be in the lineup. He was replaced in the fourth inning by Lars Anderson at first base.

 

Delgado, 38, who has had two hip surgeries, said the tightness is not in the surgically repaired hip, but that it has been "sore for the last couple of days." The first baseman said that the discomfort is "hopefully not" a setback, adding, that he and the PawSox will "see how it is tomorrow and take it from there."

 

The stiffness was chalked up by Delgado to being something that comes up as one returns to his game form. 

 

"You want things to go pretty smooth, but you've got to get rid of some of those kinks...
