The Red Sox have made some roster moves. Michael Chavis is coming up to the big club, and he’ll be joined but Tzu-Wei Lin. To make room on the roster, Eduardo Nunez has been placed on the injured list and Erasmo Ramirez was designated for assignment.

On Thursday, Dustin Pedroia was placed on the injured list and Marcus Walden was recalled, so the roster is still at 13 pitchers and 12 position players. Chavis is clearly the bigger name here, but expect Lin to play more given his experience level, both in the majors and in the middle infield. We’ll have more on some implications of this deal move this weekend.
