Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli made it into the lineup Monday against the Orioles after getting hit on the knee by a pitch in the ninth inning of Sunday night's game. Napoli stayed at the ballpark overnight to get treatment so he could be ready for Monday morning's game.

"While there's some soreness, he's ready to go," manager John Farrell told reporters. "The way he went down, it didn't look promising. We were somewhat anxious to see how he would respond."

News
Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester took the loss Tuesday after giving up eight runs (three earned) on 11 hits and four walks in 4 2/3 innings while striking out seven in his team's 9-3 loss to the Yankees.

Lester (3-2) didn't see his ERA balloon too much due to the unearned runs, but he simply couldn't bounce back after the defense failed him twice, leading to his early exit. He has posted a 2.67 ERA and 36:8 K:BB ratio in 33 2/3 innings. Lester is set to face the Blue Jays in Toronto Sunday.

Red Sox outfielder Jonny Gomes played an integral part during Boston's comeback win Sunday vs. Baltimore. 

With Boston trailing 5-0 in the bottom of the sixth inning, Gomes cut the deficit to two with a three-run homer off Ubaldo Jimenez. It came after Gomes hit a double in his previous at-bat in the fourth inning. The Red Sox would go on to win 6-5.

Gomes is batting .294 (5 for 17) with one double, two home runs and five RBI in his last six games (four starts).

News
Struggling outfielder Daniel Nava has been demoted from the Red Sox to Triple-A Pawtucket, according to radio station WEEI. His first two-hit game of the season Tuesday apparently could not save him.

Nava is 3 for 21 in his last six games and owns a terrible .149/.240/.269 stat line. The numbers represent a tremendous drop from those he achieved in a breakout 2013, during which he batted .303 with 12 home runs, 66 RBI and 77 runs in 458 at-bats.

Peavy has allowed a home run in each of his first four starts. He owns a 3.33 ERA, a 148 WHIP along with 25:14 K:BB ratio over 24 1/3 innings pitched. He'll look to bounce back in his next start Friday night at Toronto.

Hamstring - 15-day DL. Expected to return April 24 vs. N.Y. Yankees (Updated - 4/23/14)
News
The Red Sox optioned pitcher Alex Wilson to Triple-A Pawtucket after Wednesday's game.

Wilson was brought up to give relief to an overworked bullpen Wednesday, but starter John Lackey was able to pitch eight excellent innings and allow most of the team's relievers to get some rest. The move will free up a roster spot for Shane Victorino, who is expected to be activated from the disabled list Thursday.

News
Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz hinted he's struggling to find consistency with his fastball velocity and it's a big reason why he is 0-2 with a 7.71 ERA through four starts, per WEEI.com.

"Whenever you just feel loose and throw a baseball, last year it was coming out 92-93 every time I threw a fastball. This year it's 89, 92, 91, whatever it is," Buchholz said after Monday's loss vs. Baltimore. "It's different and it's hard to wrap your mind around it, but I think it's in the process of coming. It stinks waiting on it."

Injuries have been a big concern for Buchholz in the past, but he contends he's healthy.

"My body feels fine. The body feels good. Nothing's hurting," Buchholz said. "My body feels actually a lot better now than it did the last week of spring training. I feel like I was going through a little bit of a dead period. It's just a matter of getting that arm strength back up to what it used to be.

"[The arm strength is] not quite there. It feels like it's getting better. I feel like later, well there wasn’t really late in the game today, but later in the past two games, if I wanted to reach back, there were 92s and 93s there. That usually comes pretty easy. I'm struggling with that a little bit right now. But that'll come together. It's still pretty early. We still have a lot of time left in this first half to pull it all together and go from there."

News
John Farrell said Wednesday that slumping Red Sox outfielder Grady Sizemore could be destined for the fifth, sixth or seventh spot in the lineup, WEEI.com has reported.

Sizemore has batted leadoff in each of his last four games and has been placed either there or fifth in every lineup since April 5. But he has struggled mightily since a two-hit game on April 9 raised his batting average to .343. He has one hit in his last 26 at-bats since and has struck out five times in the last four games.

Farrell is hoping to keep Sizemore in the same spot. "Lineup continuity ... is a priority," he said. "That's been hard to accomplish."

News
The Red Sox used their fifth different leadoff hitter in 20 games when infielder Brock Holt got the nod Monday against the Orioles.

The Red Sox are hopeful Holt, who is batting .400 (4 for 10) since his recall from the minors, will provide a spark atop the lineup since Boston players are batting just .175 (14 for 80) with eight walks out of the leadoff spot.

"He’s had very good at-bats, both lefties and righties," manager John Farrell said, per ESPN. "Throughout his minor-league career he’s been a top-of-the-order hitter, so there’s no hesitancy putting him in that spot. In the short time that he’s been there he’s seen some pitches, he’s had some long at-bats.

"While we’re still searching for that one true guy in that spot, this is the next candidate."

Red Sox pitcher John Lackey earned a win Wednesday, giving up just one earned run on seven hits in eight innings while striking out 11 and walking none in his team's 5-1 win over the Yankees.

Lackey (3-2) threw 84 strikes in his 111 pitches, and the only run the Yankees were able to scratch out was on a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning. He owns a 4.22 ERA and 34:7 K:BB ratio in 32 innings. Lackey's next opponent will be the Rays at home Tuesday.
