Red Sox release Carlos Silva

The Red Sox announced that they have released right-hander Carlos Silva. Silva, who signed a minor league deal this winter that included the possibility of a $1 million salary if he was added to the big league roster, was diagnosed early in spring training with shoulder inflammation and was unable to throw for the last several weeks.

The 32-year-old had not pitched in the majors since 2010, in no small part due to shoulder woes. However, he showed enough stuff in workouts for the Sox this winter that the team was willing to sign him to a largely risk-free contract, with the idea that he could compete for a spot at the back of the rotation.

However, that scenario never materialized since Silva could not take the mound. The right-hander owns a career 70-70 record and 4.68 ERA.

Report: Pats close to deal with Lloyd

According to a report in The Boston Globe, the Patriots are close to a deal with free agent wide receiver Brandon Lloyd.

Lloyd led the NFL with 1,448 receiving yards in 2010 for the Broncos but was traded to the Rams in October 2011 after failing to reach agreement on a long-term deal with the Broncos. He caught 51 passes for 683 yards and four touchdowns in his 11 games with St. Louis.

If Lloyd does in fact sign with the Patriots, it would reunite him with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who was his head coach in Denver and offensive coordinator last season in St. Louis. Lloyd has suggested recently that he was interested in playing for the Patriots and...

Pierce: Ankle 'should be fine'

SACRAMENTO -- Paul Pierce left the Celtics 120-95 loss to the Kings game late in the fourth quarter with what the team called a mild ankle sprain. Pierce said he stepped on the foot of Kings' guard Marcus Thornton and "tweaked it."

"It’s a little sore, just twisted it a bit at the end," Pierce said. "Should be fine though."

Asked if he would be able to play on Saturday night against the Nuggets, Pierce said, "We’ll see how it feels. It’s just a little tweak. Hopefully it doesn’t swell up on the plane ride."

Pierce played 35 minutes against the Kings on Friday, scoring 19 while making 5-of-15 shots from the floor and converting all nine of his free throw attempts. He added three rebounds and two assists. He is averaging a team-high 18.4 points per night, and has played in all but two of the Celtics' games this year.

Pats were runner-up for Reggie Wayne

Wide receiver Reggie Wayne, in an entry on his website after re-signing with the Colts for a three-year, $17.5 million deal, offered a suggestion on his website that he considered crossing enemy lines to sign with the Patriots:

"It came down to [three] teams actually. Well..... kinda four teams at first. Then three and then two. And you Colts fans don't wanna know who other team was. I'll let you figure that one out. Ha!" Wayne wrote. "But like I said, I'm thrilled about my decision. [Now] I can continue and hopefully retire a Colt. I'm ready to start playing right now. The more I think about it, my decision to stay gets better as each hour goes by. GO COLTS!!!"
