In a move to add depth to the offensive line, the Patriots Monday signed Thomas Welch off the practice squad and added him to the 53-man roster. To make room for Welch on the active roster the Patriots released linebacker Jeff Tarpinian.

Bullpen session goes well for Beckett

According to a team official, Josh Beckett completed his bullpen session Monday without incident, and remains hopeful that he will make one of the starts when the Red Sox play the Rays at Fenway Park later this week. A decision on when Beckett will make his next start will be made Tuesday.

It marked the first time Beckett threw off a mound since exiting his Sept. 5 start in Toronto in the fourth inning due to a sprained ankle. After being examined by Dr. George Theodore in Boston, it was determined that the pitcher had sprained the joint in his ankle, while not further damaging any ligaments.

Tim Wakefield is slated to start the Red Sox' Tuesday meeting with the Blue Jays, while John Lackey will pitch Wednesday in the finale of the two-game series. The Rays, who reside 3 1/2 games in back of the Sox in the Wild Card race, begin a four-game series with the Sox at Fenway Thursday.

Red Sox calling up speedster Joey Gathright

According to a source familiar with the team's plans, the Red Sox will add Joey Gathright to their major league roster on Tuesday. The news was first reported via twitter by MLB Network and NESN analyst Peter Gammons.

"From Independent ball to Boston, welcome back Joey Gathright," Gammons tweeted.

Gathright was acquired by the Sox from the independent league Yuma Scorpions on Aug. 31 and assigned to Triple-A Pawtucket. Gathright was 3-for-8 with a walk and a steal in four games for the PawSox before the playoffs.

The 30-year-old last played in the majors in 2009, when he finished the year with the Sox, for whom he served primarily as a pinch-running option and defensive replacement. In parts of six big league seasons, Gathright is a career .263 hitter with a .327 OBP, .303 slugging mark, .630 OPS and 80 steals in 109 attempts.
