Red Sox trade for Van Every, demote Reddick

The Red Sox have traded for outfielder Jonathan Van Every, who was playing with Pittsburgh's Triple A affiliate in Indianapolis. The Pirates will receive a player to be named later. To make room on the 25-man roster the Sox sent outfielder Josh Reddick to Triple A Pawtucket. The Red Sox also designated minor league pitcher Santo Luis for assignment. 

 

The 30-year-old Van Every, who does have one option remaining, was hitting .314 with two homers with Indianapolis. He received word of the deal while in Indy at midnight Friday night. The outfielder spent parts of two seasons in 2008-09 with the Red Sox, going 4-for-11 with a triple, homer and eight RBI in 18 major league games with Boston.

 

Red Sox manager Terry Francona emphasized the importance of giving Reddick an opportunity to play more. The 23-year-old had made two starts in center field for the Sox, going 1-for-6.

BC's Tennant chosen by Saints
By: DJ Bean

FOXBORO -- Boston College offensive lineman Matt Tenant was chosen by the New Orleans Saints in the fifth round (No. 158 overall) of the NFL draft Saturday. The 6-foot-4 4/8, 300-pound Tennant’s path to New Orleans makes him the latest in a long line of Eagles to go from Chestnut Hill to the NFL. Tennant has the potential to play any position on the offensive line, as he has experience at tackle and guard in addition to his perceived professional position in the middle of the line.  For more on the NFL draft, check the It Is What It Is blog.

No suspension for Chara

The NHL announced on Saturday that the instigator penalty assessed to Bruins captain Zdeno Chara at the end of Game 5 against the Sabres on Friday has been rescinded. Chara was hit with a fighting, instigator and game misconduct penalties after reacting to being slashed by Paul Gaustad with less than a second left in the game, which Buffalo won 4-1. The instigator penalty within five minutes of the end of the game would have immediately suspended Chara but the league rescinded the automatic penalty under Rule 47.22 which states: "the suspension shall be served unless, upon review of the incident, the Director of Hockey Operations, at his discretion, deems the incident is not related to the score, previous incidents in the game or prior games, retaliatory in nature, 'message sending.' etc." 

 

"I think when you look at what happened and how it was put on paper after the game, to us it didn't make much sense," coach...
