Boston Red Sox 3B Brock Holt and 1B Brandon Snyder are a combined 5-for-33 (.151) with four runs, three RBIs and two extra-base hits since the team traded 3B Jose Iglesias to the Detroit Tigers. It's unclear if the team thinks SS Xander Bogaerts can make the transition to third base or if they'd prefer to bring 3B Will Middlebrooks back.
Fantasy Tip: Based on what the Red Sox have said, it seems more likely that they'll opt for Bogaerts over Middlebrooks, but there's no timetable for when that might happen. Speculate now and add Bogaerts in deep mixed leagues.

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said SS Xander Bogaerts is "in the discussion" to be called up to help out at third base, but a move to bring him up isn't imminent.
Fantasy Tip: Right now, some combination of Brandon Snyder and Brock Holt will man the hot corner after Jose Iglesias was traded. Will Middlebrooks still needs to work down on the farm, and while Bogaerts is the most attractive option right now, the Red Sox won't rush him. You should be prepared to add him in deep mixed leagues, though, if he's brought up. Bogaerts should already be owned in keeper and AL-only formats.

Boston Red Sox SS Stephen Drew (hamstring) is unlikely to play in the team's three-game series against the San Diego Padres this week.
Fantasy Tip: Jose Iglesias has shifted over to shortstop in Drew's absence, with Brandon Snyder filling in at the hot corner. The Red Sox haven't indicated that Drew will land on the disabled list, but with him, that's always a possibility. For now, sit tight.

The Boston Red Sox optioned 3B Will Middlebrooks to Triple-A Pawtucket Tuesday, June 25, and recalled 1B Brandon Snyder in a corresponding move. Middlebrooks was hitting only .192/.228/.389 and hadn't played since June 20. Snyder was batting .267/.338/.470 with 10 home runs in 63 games at Pawtucket.
Fantasy Tip: Snyder will be a bench bat for Boston and shouldn't generate fantasy attention.

The Boston Red Sox are expected to demote 3B Will Middlebrooks to Triple-A Pawtucket. 1B Brandon Snyder is could be coming up to take Middlebrooks' roster spot.
Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks hadn't started at third base since last Wednesday, and he was losing serious playing time to Jose Iglesias, who has been red hot and is playing nice defense at third. Middlebrooks will try to reduce his whiffing ways on the farm. You won't need to remain loyal to him in any leagues other than AL-only formats.
