Red Sox | Stephen Drew to DL, Daniel Bard optioned

The Boston Red Sox placed SS Stephen Drew (concussion) on the seven-day disabled list retroactive to March 27. RP Daniel Bard was also optioned to Double-A Portland, meaning RP Clayton Mortensen has won the final bullpen spot.

Fantasy Tip: Jose Iglesias will start the year as the team's starting shortstop. Drew is a slow healer and concussions can be maddeningly tricky, but Iglesias' weak bat should limit his worth to AL leagues for however long Drew is out.
