Report: LT signs with Jets

Multiple outlets are reporting Sunday afternoon that free agent running back LaDainian Tomlinson will sign with the Jets in the next 24-48 hours. The San Diego Union-Tribune, quoting three sources, is reporting the move is a "done deal." (UPDATE, 6:11 p.m.: ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Tomlinson has signed a two-year deal with New York.) Tomlinson, who was recently released by the Chargers, is a former NFL MVP who struggled in 2009, finishing the season with 730 rushing yards, the lowest total of his nine-year career. With the Jets, he likely will serve as a backup to Shonn Greene and also contribute as a third-down specialist. For more football news, check out our football blog,...

Accelerated heart rate sidelines Lowrie

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox infielder Jed Lowrie has been sidelined the last few days after experiencing an accelerated heart rate last Thursday. Lowrie has undergone tests throughout the past few days as a precautionary measure, having complained of feeling run down.

 

"He had a thing the other day when we over in Port St. Lucie. He wasn't feeling really good, so we had him checked out with the doctor," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said following his team's 6-4 win over the Twins Sunday afternoon at Hammond Stadium.

 

"We wanted to run him through some tests before we get him back on the field. We've been doing that the last couple of days, but with the weekend it kind of slowed things down a little bit. They're all precautionary. He just kind of came in and said, 'It kind of feels like I got hit by a car.' He just got run down and he said he has had this feeling during the winter time so we just want to...

Iglesias, Kelly, 10 others sent down

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Red Sox announced that they have sent 12 players down to minor league camp. The list included Casey Kelly, Adam Mills, Kyle Weiland, Randor Bierd, Kris Johnson, Robert Manuel, Lars Anderson, Luis Exposito, Jose Iglesias, Yamaico Navarro, Ryan Kalish, and Che-Hsuan Lin. All of the players were re-assigned to minor league camp with the exception of Iglesias, who was optioned to Double A Portland.

 

"Four of those pitchers need to get stretched out and it's not going to happen here," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. "All they would be doing is riding the bus, hoping for an inning and that's not fair to them to get ready for their season.

 

"When you talk to Casey Kelly or Ryan Kalish, it's not really a send-down. They're non-roster who made great impressions, and now they can get ready for their season. As you get deeper into camp and guys are competing for jobs those types of...
