Shane Victorino, Mike Napoli and Koji Uehara were put on trade waivers yesterday by the Red Sox, but all three will be pulled back by the Red Sox if there’s a claim on any of them. The Red Sox and the rest of baseball are putting most of their players through waivers this month in an effort to see what interest there is and to see if a deal can be made.
If a player is not claimed and goes through trade waivers, he’s able to be traded at any time.
The Red Sox will sift through this list to see if there’s a reliever or hitter they can pick off on waivers or through a waiver trade.
• RHP Rubby De La Rosa, promoted today from Pawtucket, will be used in the long role, according to John Farrell. But don’t be surprised if the Red Sox sneak him into a meaningful one-inning stint at some point.
• Clay Buchholz has been throwing fine in his long tossing.
• David Ross, recovering from a concussion, caught two bullpen sessions today and can go on a rehab assignment at the end of the week.
• LHP Franklin Morales is scheduled to throw in back-to-back games for Pawtucket this weekend.
