Report: Pats sign seventh-round pick Edelman

Reports indicate the Patriots have come to an agreement with seventh-round pick Julian Edelman on a four-year contract. Edelman was the 232nd player taken in the 2009 draft, and the 6-foot, 198-pounder is an intriguing prospect. As quarterback at Kent State, he passed for 1,820 yards as a senior and rushed for 1,370. However, he saw most of his time during rookie minicamp, the organized team activities and full squad workouts as a wide receiver and return specialist.

Patriots agree on deal with third-round pick Tate

WEEI.com has confirmed a report that the Patriots have signed third-round draft pick Brandon Tate. Tate, the 83rd overall selection in the 2009 draft, signed a four-year contract with New England. The 6-foot, 183-pound wide receiver out of North Carolina suffered a right knee injury his senior season. However, his playmaking skills to that point was without peer -- he set an NCAA record for combined kickoff and punt return yardage with 3,523 yards despite being sidelined the final seven games of his senior year after tearing the ACL and MCL in his right knee. He underwent surgery for the injury last October, but it is unknown if he will be available this season. For more Patriots' news, check out our football blog, "It Is What It Is."

Jimenez passes Watson for British lead

On the eve of the British Open, Tom Watson got a modern-day text message from Jack Nicklaus' wife. Then it was time to turn back the clock at Turnberry. Thirty-two years after his epic "Duel in the Sun" with the Golden Bear, Watson took advantage of pristine conditions on the very same course to shoot a stunning 5-under 65 on Thursday. He held the lead until Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez stole it away late in the day with a 64, only one shot off the record for lowest score in any major championship.

Sox sign Dominican shortstop Vinicio for $1.95 million

The Red Sox have signed shortstop Jose Vinicio out of the Dominican Republic for $1.95 million. Vinicio, who became eligible to sign when he turned 16 on July 10, was widely regarded as one of the best position players available on this year's market. 

Baseball America offered the following scouting report on Vinicio:

"(Jose) Vinicio is the top (Latin American) prospect who projects to stay at shortstop in pro ball. Scouts say (Miguel) Sano and Vinicio are two of the best athletes in Latin America, and while Vinicio lacks Sano's power stroke, he has very good bat speed and has shown the ability to drive the ball with some authority. Vinicio has a skinny, projectable frame, and scouts say the switch-hitter is better from the right side of the plate. In the field, Vinicio separates himself from his peers with good speed,...

Report: Sox 'desperately' trying to move Lugo

According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Red Sox are "desperately" trying to move shortstop Julio Lugo to avoid a roster logjam. The Sox plan to call-up Clay Buchholz to start on Friday, and to activate both third baseman Mike Lowell as well as shortstop Jed Lowrie during the weekend series in Toronto. While first baseman Aaron Bates can be optioned to Pawtucket to clear one roster spot, and Buchholz is expected to make just the one start before being returned to Triple-A, the Sox will still need a second roster spot to make room for both Lowrie and Lowell. That would seem to leave Lugo as the likely odd man out. Lugo is hitting .284 with a .352 OBP, but in Lowrie's absence, he was supplanted as the starting shortstop by the defensively superior Nick Green.

Lugo remains under contract through 2010. The Sox still owe him...
