The Red Sox will be faced with tough decisions regarding the roster in the next couple days, with third-baseman Will Middlebrooks and outfielder Shane Victorino set to return from the disabled list. So who will be the odd man out on the Sox active roster when the two everyday players come back?
“Well, Shane Victorino’s return will result in Jackie Bradley Jr. returning to Pawtucket, and the Middlebrooks thing is a little more interesting,” said CSNNE.com Red Sox insider Sean McAdam on the Fan Feedback segment of The Baseball Show. “because we’ve heard John Farrell this past week talk about the possibility of keeping Jose Igelesias the utility infielder and sending down Pedro Ciriaco.”
McAdam was asked the following questions from fans via Twitter:
- When Victorino comes back will Daniel Nava platoon with Jonny Gomes?
- Are there concerns of Allen Webster regressing?
- Would the Sox give up Doubront at the deadline rather than give up the young talent in the minors?
