AL East Notes: Red Sox, Rays, Ortiz, Bradley

After a look at the Yankees earlier, let's take a glance at the rest of the American League East..

  • If the Red Sox don't look out-of-house for someone to step up in place of David Ortiz then they'll have to get creative with what they have, writes John Tomase of the Boston Herald. Recently, Boston skipper John Farrell said that the club could explore a Plan B, though they haven't begun exploring that route just yet.
  • One creative solution would be to shift Jonny Gomes to DH and promote Jackie Bradley Jr. to the majors to play in left or right field, but Farrell says that hasn't been discussed yet, tweets Rob Bradford of WEEI.com.  At the same time, the manager says that nothing has been ruled out.  Promoting Bradley sooner than necessary isn't ideal for the Red Sox as it would trigger his service time clock early.
  • Jack Cust is looking for one more go-round this season with the Rays, writes Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times.
