Red Sox's Christian Arroyo: Returns to bench
Arroyo is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.Arroyo had started each of the previous four games at second base, recording three hits -- all doubles -- in 17 at-bats over that span. Hunter Renfroe's (general soreness) absence throughout the series in Baltimore has indirectly helped Arroyo pick up playing time, as primary second baseman Enrique Hernandez has been able to make starts in the outfield in place of Renfroe. Assuming Boston is back to full strength for Monday's series opener in Minnesota, however, Arroyo's pathway to regular work will likely close.
Red Sox's Christian Arroyo: Earns roster spot
Arroyo secured a spot Tuesday on Boston's Opening Day roster, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.Arroyo won the battle for the remaining reserve infield job over Michael Chavis, who was optioned to the Red Sox's alternate site Tuesday. Marwin Gonzalez will likely be first in line to enter the starting nine should a regular infielder go down with an injury, so Arroyo doesn't appear set to earn much playing time early on during the season.
