The Boston Red Sox placed RP Koji Uehara, 1B Mike Napoli, 1B/OF Daniel Nava and 3B Will Middlebrooks on revocable trade waivers.
Fantasy Tip: There's a chance one of them will be traded, so NL-only players might have another commodity to buy soon. If Uehara is dealt, expect Junichi Tazawa to take over save chances for Boston. Grab him if you can for this possibility.
