Mike Napoli went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Red Sox 4-3 loss to the Rays on Monday.

Napoli was never expected to reach last year's numbers, but this much of a regression was not expected. Napoli has 17 home runs but only 51 RBIs, much less than fantasy owners had hoped for. His overall batting average continues to hover right around .250 but a .175 average in August is not going to get it done.

Mookie Betts went 2-for-5 with a double, one RBI and a run scored in the Red Sox 4-3 loss to the Rays on Monday.

Betts seems to continue to hit in the 2-hole while Pedroia is out with concussion-like symptoms. After a less than positive beginning to his career, he seems to be gaining confidence in himself as he has reached base safely in 14 of 15 games. Manager John Farrell has noticed and seems like with Pedroia sidelined, fantasy owners can bet on him staying in the two hole.

Rubby De La Rosa allowed three earned runs on six hits while striking out four and walking none over 5.1 innings as the Red Sox lost to Rays in 10 innings 4-3 on Monday.

De La Rosa had an average performance in his Monday start. He has allowed 14 runs in his last 16 innings and should not be started in your lineup. His next start comes against the powerful Blue Jays, and De La Rosa should definitely not be started knowing the power of Toronto.

RHP Steven Wright has been called up on Monday.

Wright made one appearance at the big league level earlier this season and allowed one run over four innings. He posted a 3.41 ERA over 95 innings at Triple-A Pawtucket and should pitch out of the Boston pen the rest of the way.

Dustin Pedroia still has symptoms from his concussion. 

Depending on how Pedroia responds in the next few days, the Red Sox might just be wise to shut him down rather than risk his health. Obviously that seems extreme but the Sox aren't competing for a playoff spot so they may as well protect their players.

David Ortiz is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Monday.

Ortiz will take the day off against left-hander Drew Smyly on Monday. He doesn't normally take a seat because of opposing pitcher handedness, so this might be something to watch in the next week or so. It would be a bummer if he became a platoon bat in the final month. Allen Craig will fill in Monday.

Manager John Farrell said Dustin Pedroia (head) would not play on Monday.

With the news of Pedroia not playing Monday, Brock Holt will most likely garner another start in place of the absent Pedroia. Continue monitoring his status closely since you want him in your line up when he is slotted in the Boston line up.

Clay Buchholz pitched a complete game shutout allowing three hits and no walks with six strikeouts in the Red Sox win over the Rays on Sunday. 

Buchholz now has two complete game shutouts this season, though his ERA is still 5.40. He is still at best an AL-only play.

Jemile Weeks is en route to Tampa and will join the Red Sox around game time Sunday.

The absence of Dustin Pedroia could open the door for Weeks to get some work in this year, though they would likely have to put someone else on the bench because Brock Holt deserves to play. Perhaps the Daniel Nava/Allen Craig platoon takes a hit in playing time.
