Here’s the complete timeline for the NFL calendar for the next week or so
Monday night: The NFL will release a complete list of the free agents for the 2011 season.
Tuesday: At 10 a.m., team facilities will open and trades can begin. Teams can begin signing their own drafted rookies and other undrafted free agents. They can also negotiate with other teams’ free agents — however, they can’t sign those players yet.

Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz, on the disabled list since mid-June due to a muscle strain in his lower back, threw 30 pitches off a bullpen mound -- his first session off a mound since the end of June in Philadelphia -- and proclaimed the session to represent a significant marker in his progress back to the rotation. Buchholz threw a "short box" session, in which the catcher sits in front of home plate, and suggested that he got through the session with only minor soreness that he was quickly able to manage.

The team also has a hotline number for fans to call to get updated practice information: 508-549-0001.

Red Sox starter Jon Lester (10-4, 3.31 ERA) will be on the mound for the first time since July 6, when a strained lat muscle led to a precautionary stint on the disabled list. The left-hander is expected to throw 80-90 pitches as he works his way back into the rotation against the Royals, who were shut out by the Rays on Sunday.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia, one day after driving in his most runs (4) as a member of the Red Sox, will be behind the plate for Lester, as the Sox will feature the same lineup that plated 12 runs against the Mariners on Sunday.
