2B,3B - BOS
Christian Arroyo was removed from Saturday's game against the Yankees with back spasms, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Arroyo struck out in both of his plate appearances before exiting the contest with the injury. The 25-year-old infielder should be considered day-to-day for now and fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates.
Christian Arroyo went 3-for-5 at the plate with a home run and four RBI in Friday’s loss to the Yankees by a 6-5 score.
The Red Sox are giving Arroyo a shot at playing time and he is making the most of the opportunity. The 25-year-old infielder is hitting .303 (10-for-33) with four three home runs and a double over nine games since his call-up earlier this month.
Christian Arroyo went 1-for-3 at the plate and hit a two-run home run in a loss to the Rays on Saturday.
Arroyo looks like he is getting a chance to play every day for the Red Sox as they want to see what they have. The 25-year-old infielder has struggled at the major league level in his career and needs to prove he can hit before he will be worth picking up in fantasy.
Red Sox placed INF Christian Arroyo on the 10-day injured list according to Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe.
There is no specific injury listed alongside the transaction. According to Abraham's report the injured list designation is to have added time for being cleared after changing teams. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates regarding Arroyo.
Manager Ron Roenicke suggested the Red Sox will likely activate Christian Arroyo ahead of Tuesday's game against the Phillies, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. "Arroyo is still going through the [standard COVID-19 intake process], so we're waiting to see what happens with that," Roenicke said.
Arroyo is expected to join the 28-man roster and serve as a depth option at three different spots in the infield. The 25-year-old will most likely not see enough playing time to be worth owning in fantasy.
