Peverley (knee) now day-to-day for Bruins
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins got an encouraging sign Monday morning when forward Rich Peverley, who is coming back from a sprained right knee, took part in the team's morning skate. It was Peverley's first time participating in a practice with teammates since suffering his injury on Feb. 15, and he could be closing in on a return to the lineup. 

"Day-to-day," coach Claude Julien said of Peverley's status. "There's no exact time for when he's going to start playing again, but he's looking better every day."

Peverley began skating on his own last Wednesday. Morning skates are non-contact practices, so taking contact will be the next step in the forward's recovery.  

"He's progressed since [Wednesday]," Julien said. "When you've been off that long, you don't just come back overnight, so we're going to give him a chance and wait for our doctors to clear him."

In 49 games this season, Peverley has nine goals...

Reports: Patriots host Castillo for visit

The Patriots hosted defensive end Luis Castillo for a visit on Saturday, according to multiple media outlets. The 28-year-old Castillo, who was recently released by San Diego, is a 6-foot-3, 290-pounder who has positional versatility along the defensive front. He's played seven years in the league, all with the Chargers and has 19 sacks, with a career-high seven in 2006. His best season likely came in 2005, when he had 49 tackles (37 solo) with 3.5 sacks. The Boston Herald first reported the visit. For more Patriots news, check out weei.com/patriots.

Lester to start Opening Day for Red Sox

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said that Jon Lester will get the Opening Day start in Detroit on April 5 while Josh Beckett will take the ball for the second game of the season on April 7. With that alignment, Beckett will also get the nod for the Red Sox' home opener on April 13 against the Rays.

Lester went 15-9 with a 3.47 ERA in 191 2/3 innings and 31 starts for the Sox. Beckett went 13-7 last year while setting new career standards in ERA (2.89, 5th in the AL), opponents' batting average (.211, 3rd in the AL) and WHIP (1.03, 4th).

Mashup: Nationals send Harper to minors

Bryce Harper, the controversial 19-year-old many are predicting to be the next major league star, was sent to Triple-A Syracuse Sunday by the Nationals.

Harper, who missed six spring training games with a calf strain, went 1-for-5 with four strikeouts Sunday against the Tigers. Manager Davey Johnson reportedly had been pushing for Harper to stay in the majors.

"He's a special player," Johnson said. "He needs to go down there and do what he's doing. He doesn't need to change [anything] for me. He just needs to go play."

Said Harper: "It sucks. But I've got to go down there [to Syracuse] and work hard and try to get up here as quick as I can. ... I just want to go down there and ... get on a streak and be called up and hopefully be a game-changer for the Nationals."

Harper, who is being transitioned from catcher to outfield, is expected to play mostly center field with Syracuse.
