Lavarnway called up

From Rotoworld:

Red Sox purchased the contract of C-DH Ryan Lavarnway from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Lavarnway will serve as the designated hitter and bat seventh in his major league debut Thursday night against the Royals. The 24-year-old has had a monster season in the minor leagues, batting .293/.372/.559 with 30 homers and 85 RBI between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket. He should see plenty of playing time while David Ortiz (heel) is sidelined, so go ahead and pick him up in AL-only formats.

 

  How do you think he'll do?  Any chance he finds a way on to the red sox 2012 opening day roster?  I've always been a fan of his ability and think his defense has improved enough to be semi-adequate defensively and much better than Montero, but I'm not sure if he'll find an opportunity without a trade...
