Pedroia on track for likely Aug. 17 return

Barring any setbacks, Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is on pace to return to the Red Sox when they return to Fenway Park on Aug. 17, both Pedroia and Sox manager Terry Francona told reporters. Pedroia had an aggressive day of running in spikes prior to his team's series opener against the Blue Jays on Tuesday. He will run the bases on both Wednesday and Thursday and then visit with Dr. George Theodore in Boston on Friday.

 

If all goes according to plan over the rest of the week, Pedroia could be cleared for a weekend rehab assignment on Saturday and Sunday in Pawtucket. That would be a prelude to his return to the Sox on Tuesday.

 

Pedroia has been out since suffering a fractured navicular bone in his left foot on June 25, when he was hitting .292/.370/.502/.872. The Sox are 20-18 in his absence.

Chiarelli 'cooperating fully' with investigation
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins have released a statement from general manager Peter Chiarelli regarding the league’s investigation of the seven-year, $28.05 million contract extension center Marc Savard signed with the team in December. Here’s what Chiarelli had to say.

 

“We are cooperating fully with the League in its investigation of the Marc Savard contract extension. The League informed us upon their registration of the contract on December 1, 2009 that they would be investigating the circumstances surrounding this contract. From that point on, they commenced their investigation and it has been ongoing since then. On August 4th, I met with two League appointed lawyers as part of the investigation. We will continue to cooperate with the League in any future investigative proceedings if necessary and we will have no further comment on the matter at this time.”

 

Savard will make nearly half of his contract's money in...

O'Brien: Pats-Saints was 'what we wanted'

FOXBORO -- The Patriots and Saints completed their first day of controlled workouts and scrimmages against each other on the practice fields outside Gillette Stadium on Tuesday. The two teams will have a single workout on Wednesday morning before playing each other in the preseason opener for both on Thursday night at Gillette Stadium. 

 

"When you have another team come in here, after you've hit each other for 20 practices, having another team come in here [is good]," Patriots quarterbacks coach Bill O'Brien said. "We have to go in and watch the film and see how it went but I thought the tempo was good and got out of it what we wanted to get out of it.

 

"I'm sure there were some things we can correct. We saw some good execution in the passing game, saw some good execution in the running game and now we just have to work to correct the things that weren't executed well."

Lineups: Lowrie returns, Kalish sits

As the Red Sox prepare to take on Blue Jays left-hander Ricky Romero in the opener of their three-game set in Toronto, the team will feature a lineup with six hitters who are either right-handed or switch-hitters. Outfielder Ryan Kalish gets the day off, as Bill Hall will be in left and Jed Lowrie will make the start at second base. It is, however, worth noting that Romero has slightly better numbers this year against right-handers (.238/.314/.335/.649) than lefties (.254/.314/.387/.701).
