Daily Red Sox Links: Stephen Drew, Craig Breslow, Will Middlebrooks

Jim Rogash

Today's set of links contains stories touching on topics such as some pitchers recently added to the active roster, a lack of depth at third base, and some possible disciplinary problems for Jose Iglesias.

Stephen Drew has really started to turn it on at the plate, especially in clutch situations, and his big brother couldn't be more proud. (Rob Bradford; WEEI.com)

When the team sent Andrew Bailey to the disabled list, Craig Breslow was the one who got the call-up to replace him on the active roster. The former had nothing but positive reviews for the latter. (Rich Thompson; Boston Herald)

Yesterday, it was announced that Allen Webster would be recalled for tonight's game, with Felix Doubront heading to the bullpen for a short spell. Gordon Edes wonders if it will be an extended stay for Webster. (Gordon Edes; ESPN Boston)

Our very own Matt Kory has an article about his favorite type of player, and the fact that this player actually already exists. (Matt Kory; Sports on Earth)

Will Middlebrooks left last night's game after colliding with David Ross, and his departure led to the realization that the team's depth at third base is minimal at best. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

Coming into the season, both the Angels and Blue Jays had some big expectations. However, both are struggling at the moment, and Rob Neyer tries to decide who has a better chance of getting back into contention. (Rob Neyer; Baseball Nation)

John Farrell and company decided that the closer role would be handed to Junichi Tazawa in the absence of Bailey and Joel Hanrahan, and in a shocking development the team is expressing confidence in their new closer. (Ron Chimelis; Mass Live)

Jose Iglesias has been on the bench for the past three of Pawtucket's games, and Sean McAdam says it's because of disciplinary reasons. (Although he mentions no sources, which struck me as strange.) (Sean McAdam; CSN New England)
