Boston Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks (finger) is 9-for-28 with three home runs in his seven games of rehab at Triple-A Pawtucket. This may be opening up the Red Sox's third-base position for him when Middlebrooks returns.
Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks is a decent deep-mixed speculation, but note that the Sox's picture will be crowded with Xander Bogaerts and, on some days, Brock Holt lining up there.

Boston Red Sox 3B Xander Bogaerts may still play shortstop in 2014, but the club wants to get him right at the plate before considering it. The likeliest scenario for him playing shortstop would be against a left-handed pitcher.
Fantasy Tip: A lot depends on the status of Will Middlebrooks (finger), where Brock Holt will play, and whether they still value Stephen Drew (maybe he'll be traded). Bogaerts isn't starter-worthy right now in most mixed leagues.
