Boston Red Sox C Christian Vazquez will catch four times a week, while C David Ross will be behind the dish three times a week.
Fantasy Tip: Vazquez is the one to own here for AL-only managers. Obviously the split won't be this cut and dry each week, but Vazquez has youth and more offensive skills on his side.

Boston Red Sox C Christian Vazquez is being called up from the minors Wednesday, July 9.
Fantasy Tip: Vazquez obviously has more upside than David Ross, but it's unclear how much he'll play. Vazquez won't show much power, but his short stroke could make him useful for average. Vazquez's superior defensive skills could easily give him the edge over Ross. Those looking for a catcher in AL leagues should give him a shot.

Boston Red Sox C A.J. Pierzynski will be designated for assignment, according to sources.
Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski was in the midst of a pretty bad slump and only had four homers on the year. David Ross is the only other catcher on the active roster, so he should be expected to see the bulk of the work in the meantime. Ross is merely an AL-only commodity, at best.
