Gill: 'Absolutely a chance' Buchholz returns

Early Tuesday night at Fenway Park, Red Sox team medical director Dr. Thomas Gill addressed the prognosis of Clay Buchholz, who has been diagnosed with a stress fracture of the L2 vertebrae and is questionable to return for this season.

Regarding whether or not Buchholz could be available for either the end of the regular season or the postseason, Gill reiterated what Red Sox manager Terry Francona said earlier Tuesday, suggesting a return was a possibility.

"I think there's absolutely a chance, I just don't know how big that chance is," Gill said. "I think there's a great chance he would be healed by then, or the fracture would be stable by then. The question is how much time does Clay need to get major league ready."

Buchholz will be forced to pass five stages before being cleared to pitch again, a process that typically takes 4-6 weeks (although Gill noted there "hasn't been a reported [injured] L2 in a baseball...

Report: Patriots work out Roth
By: DJ Bean

According to a tweet from John Clayton of ESPN, the Patriots held a workout with former Browns linebacker Matt Roth on Tuesday.

Roth, 28, was selected by the Dolphins in the second round of the 2005 draft. He played the majority of the last two seasons in Cleveland after being claimed off waivers in November of 2009. He had 3.5 sacks last year for the Browns after having four and five in 2010 and 2009, respectively. 

The Patriots released outside linebacker Tully Banta-Cain last week, creating more of a need for a pass-rusher. Banta-Cain had five sacks last season, second to Mike Wright's 5.5 for the team lead.

Haynesworth: 'I've always liked' Belichick
By: DJ Bean

Patriots defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth said Tuesday that he hopes he can "restore" his name in New England after two tumultuous years as a member of the Redskins. 

Haynesworth was traded to the Pats last week in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2013 draft. He hopes that things will be better in New England.

“I’ve always liked coach Belichick, the way he did things, the way the team performed," Haynesworth said. "I’ve came to games when I was in the pros. I came to, I was here when they played the AFC championship, I want to say they were playing I think San Diego, and I was sitting up in the stands freezing my butt off, I sat there and watched them play. I’ve always been a fan of this team.”

Haynesworth noted that he will play any position asked of him. He will likely play alongside Vince Wilfork in the 4-3.

“I went to the Pro Bowl with Vince, and the funny thing...

Tito: Possibility Buchholz pitches this season

Speaking before his team's game with the Indians Tuesday afternoon, Red Sox manager Terry Francona explained that Clay Buchholz -- who has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in the L2 portion of his back (part of the lumbar vertebrae) -- still has a chance of pitching again this season, although no timetable has been presented.

"It hasn't been ruled out," Francona said. "I don't know. If you see him pitch, he's OK. We'll see."

The manager explained that the diagnosis of the stress fracture was initially identified after Buchholz failed to respond favorably a day after throwing a bullpen session July 25. The injury was then confirmed during a visit to back specialist Dr. Robert Watkins in Los Angeles.

Francona noted that the symptoms are improving, and the injury is stable -- meaning it is expected to heal on its own. Buchholz will go through a five-step rehabilitation program, progressing as the symptoms allow. ...
