With the uncertain status of third baseman Pablo Sandoval, the Red Sox were forced to make a move to get some infield depth. The team recalled first/third baseman Travis Shaw from Triple-A Pawtucket and optioned reliever Jonathan Aro back to Triple-A. Sandoval was hit by a pitch on the wrist/forearm on a strikeout by Chris Sale Thursday night. He was spotted in the clubhouse after Friday's game wearing a brace. "With Panda's situation being day-to-day we needed some infield depth," manager John Farrell said. "He's at third base today. Panda is showing some improvement. He's going to try and swing a bat here a little bit later this morning, but the soreness and swelling still persists. Whether or not he's available in this series remains to be seen." Shaw is 3-for-15 in 18 major league at-bats this season. Farrell said the team has not set its rotation for the upcoming series with the Yankees beginning Tuesday. There's a thought Brian Johnson or Henry Owens could be called up to make one of those starts. For more Red Sox news, visit
