Report: KG works out at Celtics training facility

After undergoing knee surgery in May, Kevin Garnett returned to the Boston Celtics training facility in Waltham on Monday,  Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reported. While the organization hopes he will be cleared to participate in full-court scrimmages for the start of training camp, they are proceeding with caution. “We’re looking for him to be there at the end of the season, not just the start of the season,” Ainge told Yahoo!. “We’re getting him ready for training camp and looking forward to him being healthy in the playoffs.

Wagner on arbitration: 'I'm probably going to turn it down'

Red Sox reliever Billy Wagner told WEEI.com that his inclination right now is to turn down any arbitration offered by the Sox after this season. "I know they’re going to offer me arbitration and of course I’m probably going to turn it down," Wagner said. "I have a million people telling me why would you turn down the option, or why would you do this or that. Well, I didn’t come in this game looking for money, I was just good enough to make some." Wagner projects to be a Type A free agent, which would mean the Red Sox could receive two draft picks if they offer the pitcher arbitration and he signs with another team. Wagner had said his priority heading into next season is to sign on with a team to be its closer. For more on Wagner's plans for next season see 'The Bradford Files'

Casey Kelly to play in Arizona Fall League

Red Sox prospect Casey Kelly, currently playing shortstop for Single A Greenville in the South Atlantic League playoffs, will conclude his unique season by playing short in the Florida Instructional League and the Arizona Fall League, according to Red Sox farm director Mike Hazen. In the AFL, Kelly will be on the taxi squad of the Mesa Solar Sox, eligible to play two days a week. After the conclusion of the AFL, the pitcher/shortstop will sit down with members of the organization to discuss whether he will continue to develop as a pitcher, position player or both.
 
Kelly, the Sox' first-round draft pick in 2008, spent the first half of the year as a pitcher for Greenville and High A Salem. Between the two levels, he went 7-5 with a 2.08 ERA. He showed a willingness to attack the strike zone with three potential plus pitches (fastball, curve, change), resulting in a 74-to-15 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 17 starts.
 
Kelly hit .224...
