Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Carp said he has asked for a trade because he has seen his playing time decrease this season and wants to play more than once a week. "It feels almost as if sometimes you're getting set up for failure. It's a tough situation. Nobody wants to think that. My goal every day is to go out there and win and try to help the team the best I can, do the best with my opportunity. That's where my mind's at. But when you sit around for a week, for two weeks, thoughts linger and it makes it difficult," Carp said.

Boston Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks (finger) could return from the disabled list before next week's four-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays, according to manager John Farrell. Middlebrooks has a .315 average with five home runs and nine RBIs in 14 career games in Toronto. If Middlebrooks comes back, the team may have to choose between optioning OF Daniel Nava to the minors or designating OF Mike Carp for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: The Red Sox won't be bringing Middlebrooks back to sit the bench. Get a jump on adding him in deep mixed leagues if you need some power or help at a corner infield spot.

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 11, against the Houston Astros. 1B Mike Carp is batting cleanup and playing first base.
Fantasy Tip: Replace Napoli in your daily lineups. The left-handed hitting Carp has potential as a low-budget play in daily games, due to the favorable matchup against right-handed pitcher Scott Feldman.
