Red Sox placed C David Ross on the 7-day disabled list with a concussion.
Ross is having a recurrence of concussion symptoms that originally started back in mid-May. He should be considered out indefinitely. Ryan Lavarnway has been recalled to provide depth behind the plate.
Clay Buchholz (neck) was able to throw a bullpen session on Tuesday.
It's a good sign that he'll be able to avoid the disabled list and start on Saturday in Detroit. The Red Sox should provide an update on his status later Tuesday or Wednesday. If Buchholz can't go, Allen Webster or Rubby De La Rosa would likely get the ball.
Jacoby Ellsbury went 3-for-5 with a triple, a double and three runs scored as the Red Sox beat the Rays 5-1 in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader.
Ellsbury didn't steal any bases, but that's OK; he's batting .347 with 10 steals and 12 runs scored in 11 games this month. He'll be in center field again for the nightcap versus the Rays.
Alfredo Aceves pitched five innings of one-run ball for a victory in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rays.
Aceves was at just 75 pitches when the rains came and ended his outing. He walked three today, all in the second inning. That was when the run scored, too. Other than that, he was excellent for the third straight start. Whether he'll get another one anytime soon is up in the air.
Mike Napoli is not in the Red Sox' lineup for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rays.
Napoli played the first game after sitting out the last few contests with nausea and dizziness, but he'll rest for the nightcap. Daniel Nava is at first base.
Will Middlebrooks is not in the Red Sox' lineup for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Rays.
Middlebrooks was hitless in the first game, dropping his average down to .196. Jose Iglesias is playing third base in the nightcap.
