Marco Scutaro Set To Return Tuesday, Atchison Back To Pawtucket

With the majority of the injury news this week being bad, the Boston Red Sox received a little bit of good news, regarding shortstop Marco Scutaro.

According to Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston, Scutaro will make his return to the Red Sox on Tuesday, when they open up a three-game road series against the Yankees.  

Since being placed on the disabled list back on May 8 with a strained left oblique, Scutaro has rehabbed his way back and is currently in AAA Pawtucket on a three-day rehab assignment that began Friday.  

Scutaro, who was 1 for 4 today for the PawSox, was batting .235/.316/.309 with a homer and eight RBI prior to his injury.  His role will likely go back to being the same as when he left, backing up Jed Lowrie at shortstop.  However with Lowrie's recent struggles at the plate, Scutaro may get some additional playing time.  In his last 10 games, Lowrie is only 8 for his last 40 (.200) with no homers and eight RBI.

With Scutaro coming up, righty reliever Scott Atchison will get the boot back down to Pawtucket.  In seven appearances out of the Red Sox bullpen, Atchison is 0-0 with a 4.73 ERA over 13.1 innings of work.  Atchison will join Josh Reddick, who was demoted today, as Red Sox on the road back to Rhode Island.
