Red Sox need to free up PT before Will Middlebrooks returns
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks (finger) is heating up offensively during his rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket, hitting safely in five straight games. He's had mutliple hits three times and homered twice in that span.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Middlebrooks continues to improve, but he has no timetable for his return to the majors, per MLB.com. With Stephen Drew, Xander Bogaerts and Brock Holt rotating on the left side of the infield, the Red Sox are going to have to clear up some playing time for Middlebrooks before he's activated off the disabled list.

"We've communicated this clearly to Will," Farrell said. "He's very well aware of the need to get regular at-bats. We've got to do some things to maybe adjust the roster to accommodate that. Whether that happens naturally this upcoming week, that remains to be seen -- with roster adjustments or any potential trades.

"Before even saying anything about that, I'd be getting way too far ahead of myself. But more importantly, Will is healthy, swinging the bat well and playing daily."

Red Sox praise Brock Holt for versatility
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox infielder/outfielder Brock Holt made his first start at second base Thursday at Toronto, becoming the first player in franchise history to start at every position besides pitcher and catcher.

Though, manager John Farrell said he has no plans to give Holt a start behind the plate any time soon.

"He's done a great job, there's no doubt," Farrell said, per MLB.com. "We like to think that because of injuries, it's opened up and created some opportunities for him. If we had our choice, we would've liked to avoid all that. ... But in light of what's taken place this year, it's one of the better stories. [He's] a guy we can plan around in a number of ways as we go forward."

Jon Lester contract talks put off until after the season
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox and pitcher Jon Lester won't have further discussions about a contract extension until after the season, reports the Boston Herald. Team owner John Henry sent this email to the paper:

"I’m not going to discuss Jon’s situation out of respect for both Jon and (general manager) Ben (Cherington) other than to say that both sides have put further discussion off until after the season. It’s clear that both Jon and our organization would like to see Jon back next year if possible."

Lester, whose deal expires at season's end, said earlier he didn't want his contract talks to become a distraction for the team. He's 10-7 with a 2.50 ERA in 20 starts.

Clay Buchholz struggles against the Blue Jays
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz had a rough start Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Buchholz allowed five runs, four earned, on six hits over six innings of work. He struck out one and walked four. Buchholz threw 99 pitches during the outing. Buchholz was spotted a three-run lead before he even took the mound, but couldn’t hold on. After putting the first two runners on in the first inning, Buchholz allowed a run-scoring double, an RBI groundout and another run-scoring double. After the first inning, the game was tied 3-3. 

Buchholz settled in at that point, tossing four scoreless frames. He ran out of gas in the sixth, giving up an RBI triple. Buchholz also wound up allowing a fifth run, but it was due to an error.

The loss dropped Buchholz to 5-6 on the year. His next start will come against the Blue Jays.
