A few transactions of note today…

Jose Iglesias was optioned to AAA as Stephen Drew was activated. The move shouldn’t be a huge surprise as the club had made it clear that the starting shortstop job was Drew’s, regardless of Iglesias’ play. Iglesias now will get regular at-bats in Pawtucket, a and probably will be making another appearance in Boston eventually. Drew only went 2-for-13 during his rehab stint in Portland but finished it off with a homer in his last game on Monday.

John Lackey was placed on the disabled list. Alfredo Aceves will take his place in the rotation for the time being and 2009 second-round pick Alex Wilson was recalled to fill the roster spot. Aceves will make his first start on Thursday pushing Felix Doubront back to Friday.

David Ortiz begins his rehab assignment in Pawtucket tomorrow.
