News: Roberts batted eighth in the order and went 0-for-2 with two walks in first start at third base for Boston in Tuesday night's loss to the Rangers. Impact: Injuries are testing Boston's depth early and third base is a position where they a bit thin. Roberts, who was signed Monday, will get at-bats along with Jonathan Herrera while Will Middlebrooks (calf) is sidelined. Middlebrooks is expected to initiate baseball activities by the end of the week, so it would appear the Herrera/Roberts duo has another week or so of fantasy viability remaining.(RotoWire, )

News: Roberts is starting at third base and batting eighth Tuesday versus the Rangers. Impact: After inking a deal with the Red Sox on Monday, Roberts will handle the void left by Will Middlebrooks, who landed on the disabled list Sunday due to a strained calf. The vacancy was initially filled by Jonathan Herrera both Sunday and Monday versus right-handed starters, so it remains to be seen if Roberts will get the nod solely against southpaws during Middlebrooks' stay on the sideline. Note that Roberts has in hand a career .266/.341/.444 slash line against lefties (versus .233/.310/.362 against right-handers).(RotoWire, )

News: Roberts signed a major league deal with the Red Sox on Monday, Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports. Impact: Roberts was granted his release by the Cubs just over a week ago, and it didn't take him long to catch on with another squad. The defending world champions didn't take their time finding a replacement for Will Middlebrooks, who was placed on the DL prior to Sunday's game with a calf strain. Roberts will compete with Jonathan Herrera and Brock Holt for reps at third base.(RotoWire, )
