The Kansas City Royals claimed INF Pedro Ciriaco off waivers from the San Diego Padres. KC expects to have him serve a utility role.
Fantasy Tip: He could be worth some fill-in at-bats for AL-only teams, especially since he can steal a base or two, and KC's second-base situation hasn't been stellar.

The San Diego Padres have options to play shortstop with SS Everth Cabrera (hamstring) headed to the disabled list. INFs Alexi Amarista, Pedro Ciriaco and Logan Forsythe can all fill in. Amarista struggled defensive at shortstop Tuesday, June 18. Forsythe has been filling in at second base with 2B Jedd Gyorko (groin) on the DL.
Fantasy Tip: Amarista and Forsythe will likely see the most playing time in the middle infield with Cabrera and Gyorko on the DL, with Ciriaco providing depth. Amarista and Forsythe will be short-term options for NL-only leaguers.

Boston Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks (back) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Monday, June 10. He's back in the starting lineup, hitting eighth. Boston has also designated INF Pedro Ciriaco for assignment to make roster room.
Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks' return pushes Jose Iglesias back into a utility role, and though he'll probably make two starts a week, he's chiefly an AL-only commodity. As for WMB, he still has enough power potential to warrant a deep-mixed roster spot.

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said 3B Will Middlebrooks (back) is day-to-day after injuring his back, which may have initially happened when he was running out of the batter's box on Wednesday, May 22.
Fantasy Tip: Any Middlebrooks absence would open up time for Pedro Ciriaco at the hot corner for AL-only attention ... maybe in deep mixed leagues, too.

Boston Red Sox SS Jose Iglesias (arm) is leaving the game in the fourth inning after being hit by a pitch Friday, April 5. 3B Pedro Ciriaco is replacing him.
Fantasy Tip: The good news for Boston is that Stephen Drew (concussion) could return to the lineup as early as Monday, April 8. If Iglesias is unable to play this weekend, Ciriaco should continue to fill in for him. He's only a candidate for ownership in deep AL leagues.
