Teams can expand their 25-man rosters Sept. 1. Among the Sox minor leaguers who might be considered for a promotion are outfielder Dayan Viciedo, infielder Eduardo Escobar and pitchers Gregory Infante, Shane Lindsay, Hector Santiago and Addison Reed. Viciedo left Triple-A Charlotte’s game Wednesday at Norfolk after 3 1/2 innings because of an undisclosed injury.
From tonight’s AAA-Charlotte opponent:

UPDATE: X-rays were negative. Viciedo is day-to-day.
UPDATE #2: Merkin says:
Ozzie said Sept. callups have been talked about but not finalized. He would like another catcher, for sure, a pitcher and an infielder—
