Boston Red Sox C Ryan Lavarnway is stuck in the middle between two veteran catchers and three prospects, and stuck is where he might stay. "He's a good hitter. Obviously we made a decision not to just pencil him in the lineup next year. But we still like him. I think that overall at that position, we've obviously got two veterans with one year left on their contracts and a bunch of young guys behind them. But there's plenty of opportunity for competition down the road, not too far down the road," general manager Ben Cherington said Monday, Dec. 9.

Boston Red Sox INF Brock Holt and C Ryan Lavarnway will be optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket Monday, Aug. 19, to make room on the roster for SS Xander Bogaerts and C David Ross (concussion), who will be activated from the disabled list. Also, P Rubby De La Rosa will be sent to Pawtucket.
Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts should be playing regularly either at shortstop or third base and is worth owning in mostly all formats.

The Boston Red Sox placed 3B Will Middlebrooks (back) and OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list Friday, May 24, and activated C David Ross (concussion) from the seven-day disabled list and optioned C Ryan Lavarnway in corresponding moves. Also, RP Alfredo Aceves and SS Jose Iglesias were recalled from the minors.
Fantasy Tip: Iglesias should be a hot waiver pick-up this weekend in AL-only leagues and deep mixers if you're searching for infield depth. Iglesias was seeing time at third base in the minors, and he's starting at the hot corner Friday night. Adding third base to his position eligibility makes him even more attractive in deep leagues.
With Victorino on the DL, expect Daniel Nava to benefit the most from the increase in playing time, especially since the BoSox didn't elect to bring Jackie Bradley back into the outfield picture. Aceves is expected to provide depth in the bullpen.

Boston Red Sox C David Ross (concussion) was cleared to resume throwing and hitting off a tee Monday, May 20.
