The Boston Red Sox placed RP Koji Uehara, 1B Mike Napoli, 1B/OF Daniel Nava and 3B Will Middlebrooks on revocable trade waivers.
Fantasy Tip: There's a chance one of them will be traded, so NL-only players might have another commodity to buy soon. If Uehara is dealt, expect Junichi Tazawa to take over save chances for Boston. Grab him if you can for this possibility.

Boston Red Sox 3B Kelly Johnson (groin) was activated from the disabled list Thursday, Aug. 7. In a corresponding move, OF Mookie Betts was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson is likely to split time at third base with Will Middlebrooks. Both are only deep mixed league and AL-only options, unless one of them gains a definitive edge in playing time. Continue to hold Betts in deep keeper/dynasty formats, especially if you're playing for next season.

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks (finger) returned to the lineup Friday, Aug. 1, against the New York Yankees and he had a double, run scored and two strikeouts in three at-bats. It was his first action since May 17 due to a fractured right index finger.

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket, and 3B Will Middlebrooks (finger) was activated from the disabled list Friday, August 1. Middlebrooks is batting seventh and playing third base. Betts is batting ninth and playing center field.
Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks has plus-power, but his .197 batting average leaves a lot to be desired. Without guaranteed playing time, he is only viable in AL-only formats and deep mixed leagues. Betts could be worth a flier in deep mixed league and AL-only formats, but keep your expectations in check. He might receive limited at-bats.
