Red Sox recall Iglesias, Aceves; place Victorino, Middlebrooks on DL

The Red Sox recalled right-hander Alfredo Aceves and infielder Jose Iglesias  from Pawtucket after placing right fielder Shane Victorino (left hamstring) and third baseman Will Middlebrooks (back) on the 15-day disabled list, the club announced on Friday afternoon.

Aceves made four starts with the PawSox after he was sent to the club on April 25. In those four starts, the 31-year-old posted a 2-1 record with a 3.13 ERA, replete with 11 walks and 21 strikeouts in 23 innings pitched. Aceves had a 8.66 ERA in five games with Boston to start the season.

Iglesias, who made his professional debut at third base on Tuesday, has hit .202/.262/.319 in 33 games with Pawtucket after he was optioned to the club on April 9. He hit .450/.476/.550 in nine games with Boston before he was sent down.

The club also announced they've activated catcher David Ross from the seven-day concussion disabled list and recalled Ryan Lavarnway to Pawtucket.

Lavarnway, 25, played in three games (two starts) with Boston in the absence of Ross, batting .250/.222/.375 with a double and two RBI. He'll rejoin Pawtucket where he has hit .309/.404/.469 with two home runs, seven doubles and 13 walks serving primarily as the club's catcher.
