Report: Welker not expecting new deal

According to a report from ESPNBoston.com, it is unlikely that Wes Welker and the Patriots will agree on a contract extension by Monday, the deadline for franchise-tagged players.

A source close to the wide receiver told ESPNBoston.com that as Saturday night there wasn't active dialogue between the two sides regarding a deal. Welker, who signed a $9.5 million tender on May 15, wouldn't be able to sign a contract extension until after the 2012 season if a deal isn't agreed to by Monday at 4 p.m. The Patriots also have the option to again use the franchise tender on Welker after the 2012 season, though it would then be for $11.4 million.

The 31-year-old Welker led the NFL with 122 catches in 2011, and his 554 receptions since 2007 are 80 more than any other player in the league.

Crawford: 'I've been out long enough'

Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford, who went 2-for-5 Saturday in the final game of his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket, said that he was eager for his big league return on Monday night against the White Sox at Fenway Park.

"It's just good to be back, period," he told the Providence Journal. "That's what I'm looking forward to -- just being back.

"I'm just ready to get back on the field," he added. "I've been out long enough. No matter what happens, I'm just happy to be back on the field and ready to get that feeling of being back on the field and playing again."

Crawford was 4-for-12 with the PawSox and a combined 8-for-22 (.364) with a triple and three walks (.440 OBP) in six games in Double-A and Triple-A. While he suggested that his recovery process remains a work in progress -- he admitted that his "legs get a little fatigued right now" as he re-acclimates to playing...

Sox prospect Bogaerts OK after ball to face

Red Sox prospect Xander Bogaerts, according to eyewitnesses in Virginia, was hit in the face by a throw on an attempted force out while running from first to second following his single for the Salem (Va.) Red Sox in Saturday's Carolina League game against the Lynchburg (Va.) Hillcats. He was escorted off the field with a towel being held to his bloodied face.

However, while the scene was a frightening one, it appears that a significant injury was avoided. According to Red Sox farm director Ben Crockett, Bogaerts required some stitches to his nose but "should be OK in a couple of days."

The 19-year-old is hitting .286 with a .364 OBP, .474 slugging mark and .838 OPS with 12 homers. He played in the All-Star Futures Game last Sunday in Kansas City and is considered one of the top prospects in the Red Sox system.

Rays bump Red Sox back to .500

 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Red Sox fell back to .500 (44-44) with a 5-3 loss to the Rays, Saturday night at Tropicana Field.

The pivotal inning was the seventh, when Tampa Bay drove Sox starter Clay Buchholz from the game after putting runners on two runners on with the Sox holding a one-run lead. After reliever Matt Albers intentionally walked pinch-hitter Hideki Matsui, the righty proceeded to force in the game-tying run on a walk to Jose Lobaton. It was the Red Sox' American League-leading 10th free pass with the bases loaded this season.

The Rays took the lead for good when Elliott Johnson lofted a deep fly ball to center field, good enough for the go-ahead sacrifice fly. The hosts would add an insurance run in the eighth inning when B.J. Upton took Andrew Miller deep for a solo shot. It was the first homer allowed by Miller since May 23.

The Red Sox had claimed a lead in the sixth inning when Rays starter David Price's attempt at...
