Sox send Germano to Cubs for cash

The Red Sox sent right-hander Justin Germano to the Cubs in exchange for cash considerations. Germano was designated for assignment on July 13, when the team activated Jacoby Ellsbury from the 60-day disabled list. He appeared in just one game for the Red Sox, logging 5 2/3 scoreless innings of relief on July 7.

Prior to that, Germano -- who signed a minor league deal with the Red Sox in the offseason that included a July 1 opt-out -- was one of the top pitchers in the International League. In 17 games for Triple-A Pawtucket, the 29-year-old was 9-4 with a 2.40 ERA, 72 strikeouts and 13 walks in 105 innings.

The trade is the third between the Sox and Cubs since former Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein went to the Cubs as their president of baseball operations, following the compensation agreement for Epstein's departure (in which the Cubs sent Chris Carpenter and Aaron Kurcz to the Sox, with Jair Bogaerts going back to Chicago) and a swap of...

Bobby V: No 'gaping holes on our team'

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine suggested that, as the July 31 trade deadline approaches, he is comfortable with his team's current roster and doesn't feel a pressing need for a deal to address needs.

"I like my team. I like my pitching. I like our offense, our defense. If [GM Ben Cherington] feels that there's a way of improving on what we have, I'll be all for that, too. But I don't see any gaping holes on our team," Valentine said. "All I can tell you is that Ben works as hard, as much, as diligently as anybody I've ever been around. If there's something he can do to improve our team, I'm sure he's going to do it. I don't know that there'll be one thing or many things or no things. But I'll guarantee you all avenues will be explored."

Earlier on Thursday, Red Sox president/CEO Larry Lucchino said on the Dennis...

By: DJ Bean

According to Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears (via Twitter), the Celtics have agreed to a sign-and-trade deal with the Rockets that will send guard Courtney Lee to Boston in exchange for forward JaJuan Johnson, Sean Williams, E'Twaun Moore and a second-round pick.

He was selected by the Nets with the 27th overall pick in the 2011 draft before being traded, along with a future second round pick, in exchange for the draft rights to MarShon Brooks. The 23-year-old Moore played in 38 games in '11-12, averaging 2.9 points per game, while Williams totaled just three games for the Celtics.

Pedroia hitting third, Ciriaco to DH

Dustin Pedroia will make his re-entry to the Red Sox from the disabled list in the third spot in the lineup, leaving Carl Crawford unperturbed in the No. 2 slot where he's enjoyed success in his first three games off the disabled list. With Pedroia back at second base, Pedro Ciriaco will remain in the lineup as the designated hitter, batting ninth. Ciricaco will be the first Red Sox DH in the No. 9 spot in the lineup since Jeff Bailey did the honors on Sept. 9, 2008.

With a lefty on the hill for the White Sox, Kelly Shoppach will be behind the plate for a second straight night. He'll catch for Clay Buchholz in his second start off the DL.
