The Boston Red Sox have called up 3B Jonathan Diaz from Triple-A Pawtucket. In a corresponding move, RP Clayton Mortensen was designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Diaz is expected to start at the hot corner, with 3B Jose Iglesias moving over to shortstop, while SS Stephen Drew (hamstring) recovers from tightness in his right hamstring. However, Drew's injury does not appear to be serious enough to require a DL stint, so Diaz has very little fantasy value - even in deep AL-only leagues.

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.
