6/23/2017 Colby Rasmus, TB, LF
Rasmus has been placed on the DL due to hip tendinitis.

Analysis: Rasmus, who has been sidelined since June 18, is batting .400 (12 for 30) with two homers, three doubles and four RBIs in his last nine games.
6/23/2017 Doug Fister, Bos, P
The Red Sox have claimed Fister off waivers from the Angels.

Analysis: The 33-year-old opted out of his minor league contract with the Angels on Wednesday, though he has the right to refuse the claim and become a free agent. A 12-game winner for the Astros last season, Fister went 1-0 with a 4.02 ERA in three starts for Triple-A Salt Lake after signing with the Angels last month. The Red Sox do have an opening in the rotation with Eduardo Rodriguez and Brian Johnson currently out with injuries.
6/23/2017 Alex Presley, Det, LF
Presley exited Thursday's game at Seattle after six innings and underwent concussion tests afterward.

Analysis: Presley was shaken up when he collided with the center-field wall and could be looking at a DL stint. The 31-year-old has received a lot of playing time in center field since being promoted from the minors in late May, though he's hitting just .245 with one home run and five RBIs in 18 games.
6/23/2017 Joe Panik, SF, 2B
