Red Sox | Will Middlebrooks, Shane Victorino to DL

The Boston Red Sox placed 3B Will Middlebrooks (back) and OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list Friday, May 24, and activated C David Ross (concussion) from the seven-day disabled list and optioned C Ryan Lavarnway in corresponding moves. Also, RP Alfredo Aceves and SS Jose Iglesias were recalled from the minors.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias should be a hot waiver pick-up this weekend in AL-only leagues and deep mixers if you're searching for infield depth. Iglesias was seeing time at third base in the minors, and he's starting at the hot corner Friday night. Adding third base to his position eligibility makes him even more attractive in deep leagues.

With Victorino on the DL, expect Daniel Nava to benefit the most from the increase in playing time, especially since the BoSox didn't elect to bring Jackie Bradley back into the outfield picture. Aceves is expected to provide depth in the bullpen.
