Nunez, who was acquired from the Giants on Tuesday, is expected to play regularly once he reports to the Red Sox ahead of Friday's series opener with the Royals, Chad Jennings of the Boston Herald reports. "I think (Nunez) will play a lot for us. He's been very hot. He's one of the best hitters -- since June 1 -- one of the best hitters in baseball. But I think we'll have to probably sit down and visit how he's going to be used," president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said.
