The Red Sox made some moves this afternoon that will leave them a little short in spots.

Will Middlebrooks (lower back) and Shane Victorino (hamstring) have both been placed on the 15 day DL. Middlebrooks left Thursday's game because of back spasms. Victorino has been out since Tuesday.

The Red Sox called up infielder Jose Iglesias and pitcher Alfredo Aceves to fill spots.

Iglesias will start tonight's game vs. the Indians at third base. Aceves will be in the Sox bullpen.

As expected catcher David Ross was activated from the concussion list after making one rehab start. Catcher Ryan Lavarnway was optioned back to Pawtucket.
