Patriots acquire LB Prescott Burgess, release C Ryan Wendell

The Patriots acquired third-year linebacker Prescott Burgess on Tuesday in a trade with Baltimore for an undisclosed draft choice. To make room for Burgess on the 53-man roster, the Patriots released center Ryan Wendell. Burgess, who stands 6-foot-3, 247 pounds, was a sixth-round draft pick of the Ravens in 2007 out of Michigan. He saw action in eight games as a rookie, posting seven special teams tackles before ending the year on injured reserve due to a hip injury. Burgess spent the entire 2008 season on injured reserve with a shoulder injury that occurred during the preseason. He saw action in Baltimore’s first two games of the 2009 season but did not register any tackles. Wendell was signed by New England as a rookie free agent out of Fresno State in 2008. After spending last season on the practice squad, Wendell made the 53-man roster out of training camp and played in the first two games on special teams.

Francona: '(Wakefield) can't go every five days. That's not realistic'

Red Sox Manager Terry Francona said that Tim Wakefield would not be able to pitch every five days for the rest of the season. Said Francona: "We'll try to fit him in where it makes sense." Francona said there was no word on Nick Green and that Green will rejoin the team in New York for the series against the Yankees. Speaking of the Yankees, the Red Sox are not prepared to announce their starting rotation for that series just yet. Michael Bowden, who threw 12 pitches Tuesday night, is an option. Francona also touched on Manny Delcarmen (8.84 ERA since July 28), saying, "We're not going to give up on him."

Wakefield's rotation future uncertain

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — After logging five innings and allowing five runs (four earned) on Monday, his first start since Sept. 5, Tim Wakefield will be examined today before the Red Sox chart his next course of action. Though the knuckleballer was heralded for a gutsy effort to stay on the mound, Red Sox manager Terry Francona acknowledged Wakefield will not remain on a regular turn in the rotation. (To read more about Wakefield's outing, click here.)
"I don't know [when he'll next pitch]. We'll see. That's the part that we have to keep monitoring," Francona said after his team's 12-9 loss to the Royals. "I don't think it's realistic that he would go every five days like everybody else. We'll see how he bounces back [Tuesday] and we'll kind of go from there."
