Bullpen session goes well for Beckett

According to a team official, Josh Beckett completed his bullpen session Monday without incident, and remains hopeful that he will make one of the starts when the Red Sox play the Rays at Fenway Park later this week. A decision on when Beckett will make his next start will be made Tuesday.

It marked the first time Beckett threw off a mound since exiting his Sept. 5 start in Toronto in the fourth inning due to a sprained ankle. After being examined by Dr. George Theodore in Boston, it was determined that the pitcher had sprained the joint in his ankle, while not further damaging any ligaments.

Tim Wakefield is slated to start the Red Sox' Tuesday meeting with the Blue Jays, while John Lackey will pitch Wednesday in the finale of the two-game series. The Rays, who reside 3 1/2 games in back of the Sox in the Wild Card race, begin a four-game series with the Sox at Fenway Thursday.

BC OC Rogers takes leave of absence

Boston College offensive coordinator Kevin Rogers is taking a leave of absence for health reasons and will be replaced by tight ends coach Dave Brock, the school announced Monday. Graduate assistant coach Ben Johnson will coach the tight ends on an interim basis.

"Our football program operates as a family unit, and we are totally supportive of Kevin," BC coach Frank Spaziani said in a statement. "I would like to ask our fans and followers to support Kevin and respect his privacy. I have the utmost confidence in Dave Brock, and we will begin the transition immediately."

Rogers is in his first season with BC. He spent the past five seasons in the NFL, coaching the quarterbacks for the Vikings.

BC is 0-2 following Saturday's 30-3 loss at Central Florida. The Eagles, who have scored a total of 20 points in the first two games, open the ACC season Saturday when they host Duke.

Red Sox calling up speedster Joey Gathright

According to a source familiar with the team's plans, the Red Sox will add Joey Gathright to their major league roster on Tuesday. The news was first reported via twitter by MLB Network and NESN analyst Peter Gammons.

"From Independent ball to Boston, welcome back Joey Gathright," Gammons tweeted.

Gathright was acquired by the Sox from the independent league Yuma Scorpions on Aug. 31 and assigned to Triple-A Pawtucket. Gathright was 3-for-8 with a walk and a steal in four games for the PawSox before the playoffs.

The 30-year-old last played in the majors in 2009, when he finished the year with the Sox, for whom he served primarily as a pinch-running option and defensive replacement. In parts of six big league seasons, Gathright is a career .263 hitter with a .327 OBP, .303 slugging mark, .630 OPS and 80 steals in 109 attempts.

Horton: Shoulder took longer than concussion
By: DJ Bean

BOLTON -- While Nathan Horton suffered the most famous concussion around these parts of anyone not named Marc Savard or Max Pacioretty, the Bruins forward suggested at Monday at the Bruins' annual golf tournament that the seperated shoulder with which he played during the playoffs was jsut as limiting during the offseason.

"It definitely was my shoulder, too, as well as my concussion," Horton said. "Now I feel good, I feel a lot better than I did. … We still have another month before the season starts, so I'll be ready to go." 

Asked directly whether he had to take more time before resuming workouts because of the separated shoulder, an injury sustained in the Bruins' Game 7 win over the Lightning in the Eastern Conference finals (Horton played the hero in that game with the contest's only goal to send the B's to the Stanley Cup finals), Horton suggested he had to be more cautious of the shoulder.

"I...

Epstein on D&C: Sox will right ship again

With the Red Sox having lost nine of their last 11 games and trying to hold off the Rays for the American League wild card, general manager Theo Epstein joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday to talk about his team's struggles.

Asked he had an explanation for the Red Sox' September swoon, Epstein replied: "We were asking ourselves the same questions in April. It's odd, the way we've done this -- open the year 2-10, then have the best record in baseball for over four months, and now we're 3-10 all of a sudden. It's never one factor. There are a lot of things that we're not doing well right now, and those are all contributing."

Epstein said the Red Sox can look to the start of the season for inspiration.

"The thing we have going for us here -- beyond the fact that we're a really good team, just not playing like it now -- is that we've pulled ourselves out of this before," he said. " April was no walk in the park...
