Second baseman Christian Arroyo will be rejoining the Red Sox in Anaheim for a three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
As a corresponding move, the Red Sox are optioning Michael Chavis to Triple-A Worcester.
Arroyo was originally supposed to be out for a few days with a shin bruise after he collided with Hunter Renfroe, but it was announced days later he would be put on the 10-day injured list with right shin contusion.
It was the right-handed bat’s second stint on the IL this season, as he had a wrist injury that happened earlier in the year, that took him out for 10 days.
Arroyo was rehabbing in Triple-A Worcester for the past couple days, before he joined the team today in Anaheim.
Chavis is being sent down for the third time this season. The infielder has slashed .207/.230/.238, while blasting one homer and posting a 45 wRC+ through 61 plate appearances and 20 games. He’s struck out 36.1% of the time, while walking just once producing four RBIs.
Arroyo has had a breakout year with the Red Sox this year, as the fan favorite has blasted four homers while slashing .264/.324/.432. He’s driven in 19 runs and has put up a 105 wRC+.
Many fans were hoping for Danny Santana to be sent down, but he doesn’t have any options left, unlike Chavis.
