Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Steps into primary role at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland is expected to take over as Boston's primary first baseman after Hanley Ramirez was designated for assignment Friday, Ryan Hannable of WEEI.com reports.

With a 1.001 OPS across 118 plate appearances this season, Moreland had already been roundly outperforming Ramirez (.708 OPS in 195 plate appearances), but the latter's exorbitant contract had prevented a changing of the guard at first base. However, after Dustin Pedroia (knee) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list Friday, the Red Sox no longer had the luxury of keeping two first base-only players on the roster, prompting Boston to cut ties with the struggling Ramirez, who had been on pace to log enough plate appearances for his $22 million option for 2019 to vest. The departure of Ramirez, who will be traded, released or assigned to the minors within the next seven days, paves the way for Moreland to at least see steady starts against right-handed pitching, though Moreland could occasionally give way to utility man Blake Swihart versus southpaws. In light of how well he has performed thus far in addition to the prospect of a regular spot in a potent Boston lineup, Moreland is likely now worth rostering in just about every fantasy format.

Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia: Reinstated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pedroia (knee) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Friday, Chad Jennings of The Athletic Boston reports.

Pedroia will return to the big leagues after fully recovering from knee surgery that took place in October of 2017. He successfully completed his rehab assignment Thursday at Triple-A Pawtucket, and he's expected to enter Boston's starting lineup either Friday or Saturday against the Braves. The Red Sox have designated Hanley Ramirez for assignment in a corresponding move.

Red Sox's Hanley Ramirez: To part ways with Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox will designate Ramirez for assignment Friday, Alex Speier of the Boston Globe reports.

Ramirez has been designated for assignment Friday to make room for the return of Dustin Pedroia from the disabled list. This comes as a surprise, seeing as Ramirez still has $15 million left on his contract for the 2018 season. Boston will have a week to either trade or release the 34-year-old designated hitter. Ramirez was slashing .254/.313/.395 with six home runs and 29 RBI across 44 games this season.

Red Sox's Blake Swihart: Decision looming
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swihart may be designated for assignment to clear a roster spot for Dustin Pedroia's return from a knee injury Friday, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

Swihart has just 33 plate appearances and just one at-bat since his agent requested a trade last week. He's played mostly as a designated hitter with some time in left field, but the Red Sox have plenty of other options for those spots. Presumably, another team would scoop him up, which could lead to more playing time for Swihart.

Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Role changing with Pedroia return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Rays.

Nunez has been the primary starter at second base all season, but with news that Dustin Pedroia (knee) will be activated Friday, Nunez's primary role shifts to that of a utility infielder. The Red Sox won't push Pedroia immediately, so Nunez will continue to get starts at second, but we'll probably see more of him at third base, where the 21-year-old Rafael Devers is hitting just .159 over the last 18 games.
