Nava at DH with Ortiz out, Sweeney back

With David Ortiz sidelined by a right Achilles injury, Daniel Nava -- relegated to a reserve role by the returns of Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford -- will bat third and serve as the Red Sox' designated hitter on Tuesday night against the White Sox and right-hander Philip Humber. Ryan Sweeney, who was unavailable at times in recent days due to a tight hamstring, returns to the lineup as well.

The Red Sox will have Jon Lester on the mound. The left-hander had one of his best performances of the year against Chicago in April, when he tossed seven shutout innings in a 1-0 win in Chicago. He'll be working with Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

Report: Wolves expected to sign Stiemsma

According to a report from Darren Wolfson of ESPN, the Timberwolves expect to sign restricted free agent center Greg Stiemsma.

Stiemsma, who averaged 2.9 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 55 games with the Celtics as a rookie in 2011-12, visited with the Timberwolves at the start of the free-agency period. Wolfson reports that because the Celtics are over the salary cap they would be unable to match an offer made by Minnesota.

The Celtics extended a $1.05 million qualifying offer to Stiemsma on June 29. Reports have suggested the Timberwolves will offer Stiemsma a one-year, $3 million deal.

Woman arrested for stalking Theo Epstein

According to a report in the Chicago Tribune, a 44-year-old Massachusetts woman was arrested near the Lakeview, Ill., home of Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein after informing police she was "inviting Mr. Epstein to go to church."

Kathleen Kearney was arrested two blocks away from Epstein's home on Monday night. She told police she had been watching the home of Epstein and was planning to offer the church invitation to Epstein. Kearney was then taken to Epstein's home, where he confirmed that she was a person who had been warned to stay away from his home in the past.

A police source told the Tribune that Kearney had contacted Epstein previously and that Massachusetts authorities were asked to investigate, though no charges were filed.

Kearney, a Canton native, was charged...

Mashup: Bryant, Lynch latest NFL arrests

Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant and Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch are the latest NFL players to be arrested in what has been a busy offseason. There have been at least 25 arrests in the past six months.

Bryant was arrested Monday by police in DeSoto, Texas, after a domestic incident Saturday. According to an ESPN report, Bryant got into an argument with his half-brother and pushed his mother. Police paid a visit then but did not decide to make an arrest until Monday.

Bryant was charged with a Class A misdemeanor, which is punishable by a fine of up to $4,000 and a year in jail. Bryant also could be penalized by the NFL for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Bryant has had a couple of run-ins with law enforcement in the last year, but this is his first arrest. His mother has a checkered past, including an 18-month stint in prison for selling cocaine when Dez was a youngster.

The 23-year-old had 63 receptions for...

Sox waiting on Ortiz DL decision

While an MRI confirmed that Red Sox DH David Ortiz does not have a tear of his right Achilles, the slugger is currently in a walking boot, and he reported feeling worse when he woke up today than he did upon suffering the injury while rounding second base on Adrian Gonzalez' homer on Monday night. He plans to go to Miami on Wednesday for a second opinion.

Ortiz said that he expected that he would miss at least a week. The Red Sox plan to wait until Wednesday to decide whether or not to place him on the 15-day disabled list.

"I talked with some of the medical staff, they thought the 24-hour wait at least is something that gives you a different opinion sometimes. We’ll wait at least the 24 hours and probably into [Wednesday], maybe until we get a second opinion," said Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine.

Valentine said that he was not concerned about a short bench, particularly given that such circumstances have become very...
