Worth noting

• Backup catcher David Ross, who has been out since Aug. 2 with plantar fasciitis in his right foot, is expected to be activated for Wednesday's game against the Angels.

• Farrell said everything went well for Allen Craig in the first game of his rehab assignment Monday. Craig didn't play Tuesday, and instead came to Fenway to get his workout under the supervision of the Red Sox. The plan is for Craig to play right field for Pawtucket on Wednesday and Thursday and perhaps be activated Friday.

• Corey Brown cleared waivers before Tuesday's game and accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Pawtucket. The outfielder signed a Minor League contract this offseason and the Red Sox designated him for assignment Sunday after a two-week stint with the club to make room for reliever Steven Wright.
