Red Sox calling up speedster Joey Gathright

According to a source familiar with the team's plans, the Red Sox will add Joey Gathright to their major league roster on Tuesday. The news was first reported via twitter by MLB Network and NESN analyst Peter Gammons.

"From Independent ball to Boston, welcome back Joey Gathright," Gammons tweeted.

Gathright was acquired by the Sox from the independent league Yuma Scorpions on Aug. 31 and assigned to Triple-A Pawtucket. Gathright was 3-for-8 with a walk and a steal in four games for the PawSox before the playoffs.

The 30-year-old last played in the majors in 2009, when he finished the year with the Sox, for whom he served primarily as a pinch-running option and defensive replacement. In parts of six big league seasons, Gathright is a career .263 hitter with a .327 OBP, .303 slugging mark, .630 OPS and 80 steals in 109 attempts.

Horton: Shoulder took longer than concussion
By: DJ Bean

BOLTON -- While Nathan Horton suffered the most famous concussion around these parts of anyone not named Marc Savard or Max Pacioretty, the Bruins forward suggested at Monday at the Bruins' annual golf tournament that the seperated shoulder with which he played during the playoffs was jsut as limiting during the offseason.

"It definitely was my shoulder, too, as well as my concussion," Horton said. "Now I feel good, I feel a lot better than I did. … We still have another month before the season starts, so I'll be ready to go." 

Asked directly whether he had to take more time before resuming workouts because of the separated shoulder, an injury sustained in the Bruins' Game 7 win over the Lightning in the Eastern Conference finals (Horton played the hero in that game with the contest's only goal to send the B's to the Stanley Cup finals), Horton suggested he had to be more cautious of the shoulder.

Epstein on D&C: Sox will right ship again

With the Red Sox having lost nine of their last 11 games and trying to hold off the Rays for the American League wild card, general manager Theo Epstein joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday to talk about his team's struggles.

Asked he had an explanation for the Red Sox' September swoon, Epstein replied: "We were asking ourselves the same questions in April. It's odd, the way we've done this -- open the year 2-10, then have the best record in baseball for over four months, and now we're 3-10 all of a sudden. It's never one factor. There are a lot of things that we're not doing well right now, and those are all contributing."

Epstein said the Red Sox can look to the start of the season for inspiration.

"The thing we have going for us here -- beyond the fact that we're a really good team, just not playing like it now -- is that we've pulled ourselves out of this before," he said. " April was no walk in the park...

Shaq to Ainge: Don't do Perkins deal

While the Celtics brass kept everyone relatively optimistic about Shaquille O'Neal's return, especially in the wake of the Kendrick Perkins trade to the Thunder, the now retired O'Neal is singing a different tune, claiming he told president of basketball operations Danny Ainge that he might not be ready for the playoffs and not to pull the trigger on the trade.

"I even told Danny Ainge not to do the Kendrick Perkins deal with Oklahoma City," Shaq told The New Orleans Times Picayune while in the area to be honored with a statue at Louisiana State University. "I told them I might not be ready, and I'm definitely not coming back. Those guys did what they've got to do. I wasn't surprised; I've seen it before. They say all that blah, blah, but you know it's always going to be something different."

Fans were consistently teased with...
