    News

    Nunez will serve as the Red Sox's designated hitter and will bat eighth Sunday against the Astros, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    Impact

    Though Nunez has been used largely as a utility infielder during his time in Boston, each of his last four starts has come at designated hitter with Michael Chavis having locked down a regular role at second base while Dustin Pedroia (knee) has been sidelined. With Pedroia and Brock Holt (shoulder) both in the midst of rehab assignments and nearing returns to the active roster, Nunez's opportunity to pick up semi-regular at-bats could soon take a hit.

    News

    Nunez (back) was activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Saturday's game against the White Sox, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    Impact

    He will serve as Boston's top utility player, getting starts at second base when Michael Chavis is out of the lineup or starting at third base or first base. Tzu-Wei Lin was placed on the 10-day IL with a left knee sprain as a corresponding move.

    News

    Nunez (back) will be activated from the injured list prior to Saturday's game against the White Sox, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

    Impact

    Nunez has been cleared to rejoin the Red Sox after completing a brief minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket, going 2-for-15 with a homer in four games with the PawSox. The utility infielder will take the roster spot of Tzu-Wei Lin (knee), who is expected to land on the injured list Saturday.
