Red Sox designated INF/OF Chase d'Arnaud for assignment.

The Red Sox already moved Steven Wright to the 60-day DL to accommodate tonight's starter Hector Velazquez, so this gives them an extra spot on their 40-man roster.

Braves designated INF Chase d'Arnaud for assignment.

He gets the boot to make room for Lane Adams on the active roster. D'Arnaud has been used sparingly in the early part of the season and batted just .245/.317/.335 over 262 plate appearances last season. He could potentially pass through waivers, though his versatility could draw some interest from other clubs.

Chase d'Arnaud (bronchitis) took live batting practice on Sunday and felt fine.

And d'Arnaud is on the travel roster for the Braves' Grapefruit League game Tuesday against the Phillies. He was out several days due to bronchitis and the flu.

Chase d'Arnaud has been diagnosed with bronchitis.

The infielder had just recovered from the flu and will now be held out of workouts for another few days. The illnesses should not affect his readiness for the opening of the 2017 regular season, but d'Arnaud is not guaranteed a spot on the Braves' major league roster.

Chase d'Arnaud has been kept away from the Braves for the past couple of days as he has been dealing with a flu bug.

The team wanted to keep him away from his teammates to avoid spreading the illness, which seems like a smart move on their part. The veteran infielder is looking to secure a bench spot on the Opening Day roster this spring.

Chase d'Arnaud took reps at first base on Saturday.

Utility man Sean Rodriguez was slated to back up Freddie Freeman at first base in addition to playing second base against left-handed pitchers, but now he's likely out for the season after injuring his shoulder in a car accident. D'Arnaud claims he hasn't played first since Little League but is willing to give it a shot with Rodriguez sidelined indefinitely. Nick Markakis, who has started five career games at first base, will also get reps there this spring.

Chase d'Arnaud went 2-for-5, scored a run and drove in three in a loss to the Nationals on Saturday.

He drove in a run with a fielder's choice groundout in the second inning, then drove in two with a single in the ninth inning. It was a rare productive night for the infielder. He has gotten 238 at-bats in 71 games and is batting .255 but has accumulated only one home run, 18 RBI and 21 runs. His nine stolen bases are the only semi-attractive item on his fantasy resume.
