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.
Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts should be playing regularly either at shortstop or third base and is worth owning in mostly all formats.

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 INF Brock Holt is starting at third base on Wednesday, July 31. The club reportedly is waiting for the trade deadline to pass before they determine what they'll do at third base since they've dealt INF Jose Iglesias to the Detroit Tigers.
Fantasy Tip: John Farrell indicated that the start of Holt wasn't an indictment of Will Middlebrooks. It sounds like Boston is willing to recall him in the near future, should they fail to acquire a third baseman prior to the trade deadline.

The Pittsburgh Pirates were hesitant to trade 2B Brock Holt, but Pittsburgh thought of him more of a shortstop than a second baseman. Holt is expected to serve as a utility infielder for the Boston Red Sox.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have traded RP Joel Hanrahan and 2B Brock Holt to the Boston Red Sox for OF Jerry Sands, INF Ivan De Jesus, P Stolmy Pimentel and RP Mark Melancon.

The Boston Red Sox have acquired RP Joel Hanrahan and 2B Brock Holt from the Pittsburgh Pirates for OF Jerry Sands, INF Ivan De Jesus, P Stolmy Pimentel and RP Mark Melancon.
Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen whether he or Andrew Bailey will close; if they'll split duties; or if Bailey will be traded. Still, this saves situation should be settled before you pick your team. Both K-friendly hurlers deserve mixed-league selections, even if their values remain in flux late in the spring.
Jason Grilli, meanwhile, is expected to handle Buccos saves. He has little experience in the role, but his 2012 renaissance revealed a highly skilled pitcher. Grilli's attractive peripherals say he's a low-end No. 2 mixed closer, but with his potential negative ERA regression, he carries significant downside at that price.
