Ghiroli writes the move isn't official, "but likely." It would mean the two wouldn't play in the three-game series starting Monday night in Baltimore.
The two were each suspended four games and have appealed and continued to play.
The Red Sox, though, are expected to have Carl Crawford in the lineup after he played two rehab games on Friday and Saturday for Triple-A Pawtuckett.
Boston will also get left-hander Jon Lester back from the disabled list on July 26 against Kansas City. Lester has been on the DL since July 6 with a left latissimus strain.
