Jason Varitek Activated From The Disabled List

Jason Varitek will rejoin the Red Sox' active roster for the first time since June, as Scott Lauber is reporting that the Captain will be activated from the disabled list tonight after a two game rehab stint in Pawtucket.

Varitek has been out since breaking his foot in the June 30 game against the Rays. It had been something of a resurgent year for Tek, who was finding a great deal more success with the added rest that came with his backup role, hitting .263/.324/.547.

The question now becomes how the playing time situation will work out. With the Red Sox' focus shifting to the future and seeing how the call-ups perform, Jarrod Saltalamacchia would seem to be the priority now. It might be hard Tek to come across at bats as the season wears down.
