Roster Moves: Carp to DL, Nava Recalled, Drew Activated

Mike Carp

Mike Carp is headed to the disabled list with a fractured right foot suffered during one of the Atlanta Braves games last week. He joins Will Middlebrooks, Shane Victorino, Mike Napoli, and Clay Buchholz on the ever-growing disabled list.

Carp is a versatile defensive player, able to play both first base and outfield positions. He was hitting .214 until last week. Daniel Nava will take Carp’s roster spot. Nava too can play both infield and outfield position. He is the right man to fill the void left by Carp.

There has been lots of movement between Pawtucket and Boston. Most notably during the weekend third baseman, Garin Cecchini, made his Majoe League debut during Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Cecchini entered yesterday’s game after Dustin Pedroia was ejected. He played third base and got his first Major League hit and RBI helping the Red Sox win their seventh straight game. He was optioned back to Pawtucket today with the return of Stephen Drew to the Boston roster scheduled for tonight’s game.

Both Nava and Drew will be available in the dugout as the Red Sox face the Cleveland Indians tonight at Progressive Field. Nava hit only .130/.221/.234 over 22 games with the Boston team this year. The majority of his playing time this year has been spent with the AAA Pawtucket Red Sox.  Drew spent time getting in game shape with the Red Sox Single-A Greenville Drive, AA Portland Sea Dogs, and Pawtucket after the Red Sox offered him a one-year contract for $10.1 million in May.
