Scutaro in, Reddick day off to rest hand

Marco Scutaro will get the start at shortstop for the Red Sox on Sunday in the rubber game of the three-game series with the Rangers. John Lackey (12-10, 5.94) takes the hill for the Red Sox against Texas lefty Matt Harrison (10-9, 3.54). Josh Reddick will be unavailable after getting hit in the left hand late in Saturday's game by a Darren Oliver fastball.

“Red’s pretty sore," Francona said of Reddick. "Structurally, he’s fine. He just got a pretty good bruise. I think we’ll certainly stay away from him today, let him concentrate on the ice and whatever they want to do [in trainer’s room] as opposed to picking up a bat and coming back a day too early and he struggles for a while. The hope would be we can get him some treatment today, calm that thing down and maybe have him available [Monday].”

Meanwhile, Jed Lowrie [left shoulder strain] had to come out of Saturday's game for pinch-hitter Mike Aviles...

Meriweather, Bears agree on one-year deal

The Bears have signed former Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather to a one-year contract on Sunday, according to multiple media outlets. Meriweather, who was released Saturday by the Patriots, was a first-round pick of New England in 2007, but was a lightning rod for criticism the last couple of years, drawing the ire for his on-field play. In all, the 5-foot-11, 200-pounder played in 64 games with 40 starts over his first four NFL seasons with the Patriots, and was a two-time Pro Bowler. His best year likely came in 2009, when he earned his first Pro Bowl berth after finishing with career highs with 83 tackles and five interceptions.

Report: Patriots, Waters reach agreement

The Patriots have reached an agreement with Pro Bowl guard Brian Waters, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The move allows New England to shore up the interior of its offensive line, which has been thinned because of injury.

Waters, 34, is a five-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro who is known as a high-character guy — he was the 2009 NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year. He should give the Patriots lots of help at guard, where Dan Connolly suffered an injury in the Patriots preseason loss to Detroit last week and Rich Ohrnberger going on injured reserve. In addition, Ryan Wendell has struggled to see the field since suffering an injury in training camp, while potential guard Marcus Cannon was placed on reserve/non-football injury list on Saturday.

Waters worked out for the Patriots on Saturday and the two sides reached agreement Sunday morning, according to Schefter. Once the deal is made official, New England — which...

PawSox clinch postseason berth

The Pawtucket Red Sox clinched the International League North Division title with a 12-7 victory over the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate from Scranton Wilkes-Barre. Pawtucket rallied for seven runs in the eighth inning to erase a 7-5 deficit and claim its first division title since 2003.

Catcher/DH Ryan Lavarnway punctuated his tremendous season by delivering the go-ahead blast, a three-run homer in the eighth that put the PawSox ahead, 8-7. It was Lavarnway's 32nd homer of the year between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket. Between the two levels, he's hitting .290 with a .376 OBP, .563 slugging mark and .939 OPS.

The game also featured the first Triple-A extra-base hit by top Red Sox prospect Will Middlebrooks. The third baseman delivered the milestone in style, blasting a grand slam against Manny Banuelos, one of the top pitchers in the Yankees' system.

The International League playoffs will begin on Wednesday, with the PawSox...

Report: Brian Waters visits with Patriots

One day after the Patriots hosted offensive lineman Andre Gurode, they had another veteran lineman in for a visit in Brian Waters, according to multiple reports.

Waters is a 34-year-old who has played with both Dallas and Kansas City, but really made his bones with the Chiefs, where he became a five-time Pro Bowler. A two-time All-Pro, Waters is known as a high-character guy — he was the 2009 NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year. (According to Shalise Manza Young, the Patriots and Waters did talk contract when the two sat down on Saturday.)

Meanwhile, the Patriots are thin on the interior of their offensive line, particularly at guard, where Dan Connolly suffered an injury in the Patriots preseason loss to Detroit last week and Rich Ohrnberger going on injured reserve. In addition, Ryan Wendell has struggled to see the field since suffering an injury in training camp, while potential guard Marcus Cannon was placed on reserve/non...
