The Providence Journal's Tim Britton best sums up the flurry of Red Sox roster moves. Will Middlebrooks' back spasms last night are clearly a problem -- or perhaps this is a convenient way to get him a breath so he can work on a few things without being in games. The Victorino move is not surprising -- the guy last played on Monday. The other moves are a little surprising. Jose Iglesias is one game into his 3B experiment, and now he's playing it in the big leagues (he's starting there tonight). And Alfredo Aceves is...well, I think we all know the story with Al. Somehow he's our best option, but given the beating the pitching staff has been taking, he'll be useful. One more pitcher means the bench is thinner, so look for more Mike Carp and Jonny Gomes over the next couple of weeks. The full lineup for tonight, along with starter John Lackey: Ellsbury CF Nava RF Pedroia 2B Ortiz DH Napoli 1B Saltalamacchia C Carp LF Drew SS Iglesias 3B
