It's Official: Iglesias Headed Down To Pawtucket

One Down, One Up
The Red Sox made it official this morning. Stephen Drew was activated from the disabled list and Jose Iglesias was optioned to AAA Pawtucket. So, the leading hitter on this 5-2 juggernaut is demoted in favor of a $9.5 million off-season acquisition. Given the way most of their moves have panned out so far, this will probably work as well. Drew is certainly a capable player—and before his ankle injury was one of the top shortstops in the National League. Drew will start tonight against Baltimore.
