Buchholz up to 90 feet, feeling good

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz said that he "felt really good" after throwing on flat ground up to 90 feet on Sunday. He had 20 throws from 60 feet and 20 more from 75 feet, and then he stretched out to 90 for the first time.

He will accompany the Sox on their upcoming seven-game road trip through Toronto and Tampa Bay. He hopes to work his way up to 120 feet during the road trip -- usually the distance that precedes a bullpen session -- and then "go from there."

"I can’t stay here. I’d be bored out of my mind. I’m going to continue my throwing program on the road," said Buchholz, who is 6-3 with a 3.48 ERA this year but has been out since mid-June with a stress fracture in his lower back. "Right now I feel better playing catch than I did [the last time he tried to throw in late July].

"I haven’t really tested it yet. I’m trying to build up to get to that point, don...

Lavarnway to return on Monday

Ryan Lavarnway will be called back up to the Red Sox on Monday, manager Terry Francona announced prior to Sunday's game with the Rangers. This will be Lavarnway's second call-up after making his making his debut on the August road trip through Kansas City and Texas. 

The catcher was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket on Aug. 18 when Kevin Youkilis went on the disabled list and David Ortiz was already on the disabled list. Lavarnway served as designated hitter for six games and went 7-for-23 (.304) in seven games overall before being sent back down. 

He caught just two innings in his final game appearance, a 13-2 win over the Rangers on Aug. 24.

Scutaro in, Reddick day off to rest hand

Marco Scutaro will get the start at shortstop for the Red Sox on Sunday in the rubber game of the three-game series with the Rangers. John Lackey (12-10, 5.94) takes the hill for the Red Sox against Texas lefty Matt Harrison (10-9, 3.54). Josh Reddick will be unavailable after getting hit in the left hand late in Saturday's game by a Darren Oliver fastball.

“Red’s pretty sore," Francona said of Reddick. "Structurally, he’s fine. He just got a pretty good bruise. I think we’ll certainly stay away from him today, let him concentrate on the ice and whatever they want to do [in trainer’s room] as opposed to picking up a bat and coming back a day too early and he struggles for a while. The hope would be we can get him some treatment today, calm that thing down and maybe have him available [Monday].”

Meanwhile, Jed Lowrie [left shoulder strain] had to come out of Saturday's game for pinch-hitter Mike Aviles...

Meriweather, Bears agree on one-year deal

The Bears have signed former Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather to a one-year contract on Sunday, according to multiple media outlets. Meriweather, who was released Saturday by the Patriots, was a first-round pick of New England in 2007, but was a lightning rod for criticism the last couple of years, drawing the ire for his on-field play. In all, the 5-foot-11, 200-pounder played in 64 games with 40 starts over his first four NFL seasons with the Patriots, and was a two-time Pro Bowler. His best year likely came in 2009, when he earned his first Pro Bowl berth after finishing with career highs with 83 tackles and five interceptions.

Report: Patriots, Waters reach agreement

The Patriots have reached an agreement with Pro Bowl guard Brian Waters, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The move allows New England to shore up the interior of its offensive line, which has been thinned because of injury.

Waters, 34, is a five-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro who is known as a high-character guy — he was the 2009 NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year. He should give the Patriots lots of help at guard, where Dan Connolly suffered an injury in the Patriots preseason loss to Detroit last week and Rich Ohrnberger going on injured reserve. In addition, Ryan Wendell has struggled to see the field since suffering an injury in training camp, while potential guard Marcus Cannon was placed on reserve/non-football injury list on Saturday.

Waters worked out for the Patriots on Saturday and the two sides reached agreement Sunday morning, according to Schefter. Once the deal is made official, New England — which...
