Red Sox Activate 37-Year-Old Brandon Philips And 21-Year-Old Rafael Devers

Proving decisively that the Red Sox do not discriminate based on age, the team activated both 37-year-old Brandon Philips and 21-year-old Rafael Devers on Tuesday. Philips has hit .304 with 5 HRs and 26 RBIs in 44 minor-league games this year. It's unclear exactly how the three-time All-Star will contribute to the team in September—since he he will not be available for the post-season. Devers is recovering from a DL stint. Before being injured, he had slumped to a .242 average this year—striking out 105 times in 102 games. He appeared to be miffed with his long DL stay. Keep tuned!
