Red Sox Place Third Baseman Rafael Devers On 10-Day DL
Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Thursday with inflammation in his left shoulder.
The 21-year-old Devers is batting .241 with 14 home runs and 48 RBIs.
Devers was injured on July 4 against the Nationals, when he slid awkwardly into the plate on a sac fly.
Devers, who leads the majors with 19 errors, has gone 2-for-14 with no extra-base hits since the Independence Day game.
The Red Sox have recalled Tzu-Wei Lin from Triple A Pawtucket. In 16 games with the Red Sox this season, Lin is 6-for-37 at the plate, a .162 batting average.
The 24-year-old Lin has a .308 batting average in 46 games with Pawtucket this season.
Devers is the second player in the last five days to be placed on the disabled list by the Red Sox. Christian Vazquez is out 6-8 weeks after having surgery to repair his broken right pinky finger.
