The Red Sox have recalled catcher Ryan Lavarnway from Pawtucket and placed David Ross on the 7-day disabled list with a concussion. The news of Lavarnway's recall was first reported by Evan Drellich of Masslive.com. In another move, shortstop Deven Marrero has been activated from the disabled list and is in today's starting lineup, Salem announcer Evan Lepler reports.
Lavarnway is enjoying a bounce back year with the PawSox, hitting .313/.408/.475 in 22 games. This will be the catcher's second stint with the major league club in 2013. He was recalled for three days in late April, but did not see game action. Lavarnway previously saw major league action in 2011 and 2012.
Marrero, the Red Sox top pick in the 2012 amateur draft, had missed 17 games with a hamstring injury suffered in Salem's April 22 game against Wilmington. Marrero was off to a solid start in his first full professional season, hitting .294/.400/.451 in 51 at-bats. He makes his return to the lineup batting second and playing shortstop.
