Boston Red Sox INF Brock Holt and C Ryan Lavarnway will be optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket Monday, Aug. 19, to make room on the roster for SS Xander Bogaerts and C David Ross (concussion), who will be activated from the disabled list. Also, P Rubby De La Rosa will be sent to Pawtucket.

Boston Red Sox SP Jon Lester will start on Sunday, June 16, against the Baltimore Orioles. SP Clay Buchholz (neck) has been pushed back to start one end of the team's doubleheader on Tuesday, June 18, versus the Tampa Bay Rays. P's Alfredo Aceves and Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) are the two candidates to start the other end of the twin bill.
Fantasy Tip: This just confirms what seemed likely a day ago. Lester is working on some mechanical issues and isn't the safest play; the BoSox were hoping for a couple of extra days to get him some extra work on the side. Aceves has pitched well in three starts and would seem to be the safer choice. Buchholz can't be considered a lock to make his start Tuesday, yet.

Boston Red Sox SPs Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster, along with P Alfredo Aceves, are candidates to start one end of a doubleheader scheduled for Tuesday, June 18, against the Tampa Bay Rays.
De La Rosa's pitch counts have moved into the 80s recently, but he has completed five innings only once in his 11 starts for Triple-A Pawtucket. He's allowed only four earned runs in his last eight starts (good for a 1.14 ERA in that span), however.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds like De La Rosa isn't the ideal candidate, especially since Webster has already filled in twice this season -- once quite well, once disastrously -- and Aceves would also be on turn. Clay Buchholz's recent neck issue, along with the recent taxing of Boston's bullpen, has forced them to examine their options. It's feasible to think that P Franklin Morales, who was originally scheduled to start on Wednesday before he was needed for a couple of frames in last night's 14-inning game, is an option for the doubleheader, too.
