There were some shakeups in the Red Sox roster Friday afternoon.

Shane Victorino, who experienced left hamstring tightness and left Monday's game against the White Sox, was placed on the DL Friday. Victorino has also been dealing with a back issue, and it's unclear if one is related to the other in any way.

But he wasn't alone. Will Middlebrooks was also placed on the DL one day after leaving Thursday's game with what the team called low back spasms.

Both Alfredo Aceves and Jose Iglesias were called up to the Sox on Friday. Iglesias gets the start at third base and will hit ninth in the order Friday night.

Ryan Lavarnway was optioned back to Pawtucket.

The Red Sox also took David Ross off the seven-day concussion DL.
