The Boston Red Sox have placed right-hander John Lackey on the 15-day disabled list and activated shortstop Stephen Drew. In another move Wednesday, they called up right-hander Alex Wilson from Pawtucket. On Tuesday, they optioned shortstop Jose Iglesias to the Triple-A team. Lackey strained his right biceps against the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday in his first start since major elbow surgery sidelined him all last season. He was placed on the disabled list retroactive to Sunday. Drew was activated from the seven-day concussion disabled list. He had been hit in the helmet by a pitch on March 7 against the Minnesota Twins in Grapefruit League play. Iglesias hit .450 in six games for Boston this season. Wilson was 1-0 with a 10.12 ERA in two relief appearances for Pawtucket.

Lackey to DL and...

Drew over Iglesias the wrong move for the Red Sox

There was a time when I supported Stephen Drew as one of the most underrated shortstops in baseball. If you search my site, you will probably find a post or two on the subject. But that was before he broke his ankle and fell out of favor in Arizona. Since that injury, Stephen Drew has not yet been able to recapture his elite shortstop status. I waited for years for Drew to have...

Alfredo Aceves Reinforces Fact That He’s Versatile by Filling in Nicely for John Lackey Against Orioles

Not bad for a guy who hasn’t started in nearly 22 months. Alfredo Aceves made his first start since June 21, 2011 against the Orioles on Thursday, and he pitched five solid frames, giving the Red Sox a chance to win in the process. All in all, it’s hard to ask for much more from Aceves, even if the Sox eventually came out on the losing end. Red Sox manager John Farrell said before...

Vote: Who Should Be the Red Sox’ Starting Shortstop for 2013?
