Red Sox sign Alan Embree

The Red Sox have signed Alan Embree to a minor league deal with an invitation to big league camp. A little late, but sources say Embree has the inside track to making the team.

"Today we'll go out and see where he is,'' manager Terry Francona said. "He says he's almost game-ready. He says he's been throwing a lot of bullpens.''

The Red Sox are going to see where he is at, but if all goes well, he could join the BoSox pen just in time for Opening Day.
