Rafael Devers to DL, Ian Kinsler activated

Good news/bad news for the Boston Red Sox today. The good news is Ian Kinsler is back from the disabled list and will start at 2B tonight. The bad news is the Red Sox placed 3B Rafael Devers on the disabled list with a hamstring strain retroactive to Thursday.

Kinsler missed the last 11 games with a hamstring strain of his own that he suffered during Boston’s August 3 win over the New York Yankees. The injury occurred in Kinsler’s third game with the Red Sox after Boston acquired him from the LA Angels prior to the non-waiver trade deadline. Kinsler tonight will hit sixth and play second base and Eduardo Nunez will take Devers’ spot at the hot corner and hit seventh against the Tampa Bay Rays. Brock Holt may see some time at 3B as well in Devers absence.
