Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts will temporarily be moved to second base, and his first game there could come Friday, Sept. 12, according to manager John Farrell. 2B Dustin Pedroia (wrist) is out for the season, and 3B Brock Holt (head) has not played since Sept. 5 due to concussion-like symptoms. OF Rusney Castillo could be added to the roster next week. Betts would play second base "fairly regularly." He hasn't played second base since he was with Class AAA July 28. Farrell said the team still sees Betts as an outfielder in the long term, however. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. will share duties in center field.

The Boston Red Sox have recalled OF Mookie Betts from Triple-A Pawtucket. The team also optioned OF Jackie Bradley Jr. to Triple-A Pawtucket.
Fantasy Tip: Betts could receive some playing time since the team's outfield situation is unsettled at the moment because of injuries. Betts could be an option for owners in deeper mixed leagues that are looking to add some steals.

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (undisclosed) could be headed back to the disabled list soon. He will "miss a little time," according to general manager Ben Cherington. OF Yoenis Cespedes will play right field and OF Allen Craig will be in left.
Fantasy Tip: Victorino just can't seem to stay healthy as he ages. Don't feel the need to hang onto him in standard leagues if he goes back on the DL. Jackie Bradley Jr. seems safe, for now.

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts is back in the starting lineup Monday, June 30. OF Mookie Betts will make his second major league start in center field as OF Jackie Bradley Jr. sits.
Fantasy Tip: You may want to think twice about returning Bogaerts back to your starting lineup, though, until he shows signs of breaking out of his current slump.

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. remains the club's center fielder of the present and future, according to general manager Ben Cherington.
Fantasy Tip: Should Bradley be in your mixed lineup? Not so much. He's worth a stash in deep formats and, of course, will remain relevant in AL-only games. Of course, for the future, maybe Mookie Betts replaces JBJ.
