Boston Red Sox SS Stephen Drew (oblique) is out of the starting lineup for the second straight game Tuesday, June 10, due to an oblique injury, according to multiple sources. SS Jonathan Herrera is starting at the 6. Drew has just one hit and an RBI in 14 at-bats, with two walks.
Fantasy Tip: Oblique injuries typically aren't something you can come back from quickly, especially for a player that may be rusty from not playing games in a while.

The Boston Red Sox have placed 3B Will Middlebrooks (finger) on the 15-day disabled list because of a fractured finger. In a corresponding move, INF Brock Holt has been recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket.
Fantasy Tip: Expect Holt and INF Jonathan Herrera to split time at third base while Middlebrooks is sidelined. Outside of AL-only leagues, neither player warrants much fantasy consideration.

Boston Red Sox 3B Ryan Roberts is expected to be in the lineup at third base Tuesday, April 8, and he'll be used in a platoon at the hot corner with 3B Jonathan Herrera with 3B Will Middlebrooks (calf) on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Roberts should be looked at in AL-only leagues for the short term if you're hurting at 3B or a corner infield spot. However, he's likely to be sent down once Middlebrooks is back.

The Boston Red Sox optioned 3B Brock Holt to Triple-A Pawtucket Monday, April 7, to make room on the roster for 3B Ryan Roberts. Roberts presents insurance at third base with 3B Will Middlebrooks (calf) on the disabled list. 3B Jonathan Herrera started the last two games at third base.

The Boston Red Sox have recalled INF Brock Holt from Triple-A Pawtucket.
Fantasy Tip: Holt is replacing injured 3B Will Middlebrooks (calf) on the 25-man roster, but INF Jonathan Herrera is expected to see most of the action at third base, so Holt has no fantasy value. Manager John Farrell said Holt was recalled instead of top prospect 3B Garin Cecchini because he is still developing. Cecchini is batting .556 (5-for-9) at Pawtucket after hitting .322 with 33 doubles in the minors last season.

The Boston Red Sox have placed 3B Will Middlebrooks (calf) on the 15-day disabled list with a Grade 1 calf strain, according to manager John Farrell.
Fantasy Tip: INF Jonathan Herrera is expected to get the bulk of the action at the hot corner in Middlebrooks' absence but he should only be considered in deep AL or mixed leagues. Middlebrooks was batting .231 through his first four games with a double and a home run.
