Stephen Drew appears to be finding his groove as he had another good night at the plate Monday where he went 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk, four RBI, and two runs scored.

Drew joined Boston's home run parade Monday night, blasting off for his third home run of the season (114 PA). He's 7 for his last 17 with 7 runs and 4 rbi. His strikeout-walk rate is 11/8 over that period as well. The bad news is that even with the hot streak, he's still only hitting .175.

Mike Napoli went 3-for-5 with a home run, a double, an RBI, and three runs scored in Monday's 14-1 victory over the Blue Jays.

It was a massive day for the Red Sox offense who dropped a 14-spot on the Blue Jays in Toronto. Napoli is quietly having an excellent season in spite of missing considerable time. His triple-slash currently sits at .280/.398/.462 with 12 home runs in 78 games. For those of you in OBP leagues, Napoli currently owns the fourth-highest walk-rate in baseball (16.1 percent).

David Oritz homered twice in five at-bats Monday against the Blue Jays driving in four and scoring twice as he passed Carl Yastrzemski for 35th most home runs in franchise history.

Ortiz hit both his home runs off Oakland-castoff Brad "one dollar" Mills who came in after starter Drew Hutchison failed to get out of the third inning. Ortiz is having yet another fine season at the ripe age of 38. The home runs were numbers 21 and 22 on the season.

Jake Peavy is still on Cardinals back burner according to a major league source. 

The Cardinals are one of the teams poised to be buyer's at the upcoming deadline. They have an excess of outfield talent, and ideally would like to replace Carlos Martinez -- who's struggled mightily of late and isn't going deep into games -- at the back of the rotation. They have the goods to acquire just about anyone, but John Mozeliak isn't the type of GM typically willing to sell the farm for a vacation rental.

The Braves have interest in Red Sox lefty Andrew Miller.

The Braves have been rumored to be in search of left-handed bullpen arm. Luis Avilan is the Braves only lefty specialist, and he's having a down year. Look for them to acquire someone before the end of the month.

Shane Victorino is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Monday.

After back-to-back games in which he went 3-for-7, Victorino will take a seat Monday just to keep him rested. If the Red Sox are going to want to keep him around for more than a week, they're going to have to spell him often. Brock Holt is in right field with Daniel Nava in left Monday.

Will Middlebrooks (finger/wrist) went 2-for-4 with a run scored with Triple-A Pawtucket Sunday.

The Red Sox have decided to end the experiments of having Middlebrooks play in the outfield deciding that third base will be his position moving forward. The decision to move Middlebrooks back to third base is an interesting one as recent reports have stated the Red Sox see Xander Bogaerts as their permanent third basemen. With the trade deadline nearing Middlebrooks move back to his natural position could be to showcase him to potential trading partners. Middlebrooks has the type of power teams covet from their corner infielders but his lack of patience and inability to control the strike zone has lead to an increased strikeout rate and ultimately a poor batting average.

David Ross went 1-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and a pair of runs scored in Sunday's win over the Royals. 

Despite a nice showing from Ross on Sunday, the fact remains that he has little to no fantasy value as he remains in a timeshare with rookie catcher Christian Vazquez. He will continue to catch both Jon Lester and Jake Peavy on a regular basis, but a .175 batting average doesn't warrant ownership even in the deepest of formats.

Daniel Nava went 2-for-3 with a double and three RBI in Sunday's 6-0 win over the Royals.

Nava has been impressive in his two starts since returning from the All-Star break, logging three hits over his first three games. The Red Sox outfielder is now slashing .355/.429/.387 in the month of July, so he should continue to see regular at-bats at least until he cools off. He makes for a decent outfield pickup for those in deep league formats, just don't expect see last years' 12 homer-66 RBI type of production because you will be sadly mistaken.
