Alejandro de Aza showing up Hanley Ramirez in OF for Red Sox
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:34 am ET) When Hanley Ramirez returns from his wrist injury, which could be soon, he will be back in left field and Alejandro De Aza will assume his spot on the bench.

And that's not good for the Red Sox defense.

Ramirez has cost the team 14 runs in the field, more than any player at any position in the majors, according to Fangraphs.com. His inexperience, poor route-running and lack of assuredness have combined for disaster. He grades out at minus-0.3 WAR despite leading the team with 15 home runs and 38 RBI.

DeAza has provided welcome relief. He saved two runs in the sixth inning of a 3-1 win over Toronto on Monday night by snagging a gapper off the bat of Jose Bautista and adding a sweet catch to take a single away from Josh Donaldson in the ninth inning. Never mind that he's also 9-for-19 at the plate.

"He's got very good range. He can run," John Farrell told the Boston Herald. "...The range he showed tonight was as good as you're probably going to see from a left fielder."

Ramirez, on the other hand, has played the outfield like a designated hitter. But the presence of David Ortiz in that role means that Ramirez will return to left field when healthy.


Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi start moved up to Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:17 am ET) The move to the bullpen for Yankees staff mate Adam Warren has resulted in the next start for Nathan Eovaldi being switched from Friday to Wednesday against the host Angels, reports Newsday.

Eovaldi, whose outing will now be on his regular rest cycle, is coming off two consecutive quality starts. But he has allowed 105 hits in 82 1/3 innings this season and owns a 4.81 ERA despite a 7-2 record.

His 1.54 WHIP is the worst among major league starters.

(1:58 am ET) Dodgers shortstop Jimmy Rollins went 1 for 5 at the plate during Monday's 10-6 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Rollins was able to drive in two runs in the seventh inning when he hit a single off Anderw Chafin, which scored Adrian Gonzalez and Andre Ethier.

Prior to Monday's game, Rollins was hitting .224 with two doubles and three RBI in his last 17 games.


Yankees move Adam Warren to bullpen
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1:53 am ET) Yankees pitcher Adam Warren said Monday he will not start Wednesday's game against the Angels and instead pitch out of the bullpen, reports the New York Daily News.

Warren has started 15 games for the Yankees and is 5-5 with a 3.59 ERA.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Dodgers OF Andre Ethier collects three hits in Monday's loss
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
