Red Sox's Tzu-Wei Lin: Called up to Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lin was recalled by the Red Sox Friday night, Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports.

Lin dominated at Double-A (.302/.379/.491) and did well in a 17-game stint with the big club earlier this year (.280/.379/.360). But he struggled to find his footing at Triple-A Pawtucket, where he mustered just a .225 batting average and was caught in four of his five stolen base attempts. Lin isn't likely to play much of a role for the Red Sox down the stretch.

Red Sox's Tzu-Wei Lin: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lin was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday night, Ryan Hannable of WEEI.com reports.

Lin played frequently the last couple weeks and held his own despite jumping all the way from Double-A to the majors. However, with Brock Holt returning to action Sunday and ready to resume his utility role, he'll serve as the left-handed hitting complement to Deven Marrero at third base. Lin, whose bat had slowed down after a hot start to his MLB career, heads back to the minors where he can play regularly. He figures to rejoin the big club in September, possibly before if another injury occurs.

Red Sox's Tzu-Wei Lin: Moves to shortstop Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lin moved from third base to shortstop Thursday after Xander Bogaerts left the game with a hand injury.

Bogaerts escaped serious injury but was in pain following the game after being hit by a pitch during his first at-bat, putting his availability for Friday's game in jeopardy. If Bogaerts is forced to miss multiple days, Lin will be the choice to fill in at shortstop. That means he'll have a guaranteed spot in the starting lineup, so fantasy owners who have latched onto Lin won't have to navigate his platoon at third base with Deven Marrero.

Red Sox's Tzu-Wei Lin: Will continue to see time at third
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lin will continue to earn the bulk of the playing time at third base, Rob Bradford of WEEI reports.

Lin has been playing well since receiving his first big-league promotion on June 24, including a 3-for-4 day with two RBI during Tuesday's victory over Texas. Although Pablo Sandoval (illness) and Josh Rutledge (concussion) are eligible to return to the team over the next few days, manager John Farrell will continue to ride the hot bat with Lin for the time being. For Wednesday's series finale, Lin is manning the hot corner while batting ninth.

Red Sox's Tzu-Wei Lin: Three hits in Tuesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lin went 3-for-4 with a walk, two RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 11-4 win over the Rangers.

Despite hitting ninth in the order Lin put together a very productive performance that included his first career steal in the majors. He's now got a .360/.429/.520 slash line through his first 10 games with the Red Sox, and at least for the moment the 23-year-old seems to be solving Boston's problems at third base.
