The reinforcements are here


Just wanted to update you guys on who was called up yesterday, the first day for expanded rosters.

Infielders: Royce Clayton, reactivated Doug Mirabelli

Clayton is a solid veteran who bats right-handed. He will spell Lugo and Pedroia in the middle of the infield.

Outfielders: Jacoby Ellsbury, Brandon Moss

With both Manny and Kielty ailing, both of these guys should see some good playing time. I think both of them will open some eyes, both at the plate and in the field.

Starters: Clay Buchholz

Throwing a no-hitter is a pretty good start to September. How will he top that?

Relievers: Craig Breslow, Bryan Corey

Breslow is another lefty added for matchup purposes, and Corey is a steady veteran for the pen. Look for the Sox to lean more on these guys as the division title gets more sewn up.

To the DL: Brendan Donnelly was put onto the 60-day DL
