Lackey to start Sunday against Yankees

NEW YORK -- The Red Sox have tabbed John Lackey to start the Sunday finale of their series with the Yankees. Lackey will be working on five days rest, but he is coming off an outing in which he gave up eight runs and 11 hits in 4 1/3 innings.

The starter's identity had been undecided heading into the series, but manager Terry Francona went with Lackey instead of inserting reliever Alfredo Aceves into the rotation. 

"I think starting Lackey is the right thing to do," Fracona said. He added that he preferred Aceves to remain in the bullpen where he can be used as in several different roles.

Patriots cut TE Dan Gronkowski

The Patriots announced Friday that they have released tight end Dan Gronkowski. The brother of New England tight end Rob Gronkowski, the 6-foot-5, 255-pounder, was signed by the Patriots on September 7, 2011 and played in the first two games for the Patriots. He is a veteran of two NFL seasons with Detroit (2009) and Denver (2010). Gronkowski originally entered the NFL as a seventh-round draft pick (255th overall) of Detroit in 2009 out of Maryland. He was traded by Detroit to Denver on Sept. 4, 2010. He was released by Denver on Sept. 3. He has played in 16 NFL games, including two with the Patriots, with four starts and has nine receptions for 65 yards. For more Patriots news, check out weei.com/patriots.

Tito: Buchholz' next step could be game

NEW YORK -- Clay Buchholz threw a two-inning simulated game indoors consisting of 15 pitches per inning and said that he experienced nothing more than normal soreness. That was a relief for Buchholz who said that it was "a weight off my shoulders," and he now expects to have a normal offseason workout program.

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said that his pitcher's next step in attempting to return from a stress fracture in his back would be pitching in a game, although no earlier than Monday when the Sox begin a three-game series with Baltimore to finish the season. Buchholz acknowledged that it might be hard to put him on the postseason roster without that experience.

Lineup: Pedroia batting second vs. Garcia

NEW YORK -- Dustin Pedroia and Mike Aviles traded places in the Red Sox lineup following Thursday's off-day, with Pedroia returning to his customary second spot and Aviles moving down in the order to hit fifth against the Yankees and starter Freddy Garcia.
