David Ortiz will make the start at first base on Monday for the first time this season.
With a series in Atlanta kicking off on Monday, the Red Sox are expected to use their designated hitter at first base while playing in a National League ballpark. With Mike Napoli on the disabled list, the decision was made a lot easier for the Red Sox, although Ortiz may get an additional day off to keep Mike Carp fresh at first base. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Diamondbacks are having internal discussions about whether to pursue Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Salty has been god awful so far this season, and the Marlins feel comfortable going forward with J.T. Realmuto as their starting catcher. They decided to designate him for assignment, giving the Diamondbacks a chance to go after the veteran catcher. Going to Arizona wouldn't do much for his fantasy value besides for having him remain in the big leagues, so unless he somehow turns it around and gets a deal worked out with the D-Backs, punt on Saltalamacchia.
