Description: Ryan Lavarnway is expected to be called up to Boston now that there's an open spot on the roster. SOURCE: Pete Abraham, Boston Globe
Insight: He might only be in the majors for a couple days as John Lackey is expected to reclaim his spot in the rotation Sunday against Houston. The backup catcher hit .157 in 46 games at the big league level in 2012.

Description: Boston has recalled catcher Ryan Lavarnway from Triple-A Pawtucket. He'll get the start at catcher Thursday as the Red Sox open their series against the Twins.
Insight: Lavarnway hit .231 with a couple of homers and eight RBIs in a 17-game stint in the majors last season. He could figure to see a good amount of playing time at Fenway in the future but we're not expecting the 24-year-old to stay in the majors for very long this time around.
