DETROIT (AP) _ The Boston Red Sox have placed outfielder Darnell
McDonald on the disabled list with a left quadriceps injury.
Boston called up outfielder Josh Reddick from Triple-A Pawtucket
and put him in right field against the Detroit Tigers on Thursday.
McDonald is hitting .143 in 21 at-bats over 19 games this
season. Reddick played a total of 56 games with a .182 batting
average the previous two seasons for Boston.
Red Sox manager Terry Francona says Bobby Jenks will pitch an
inning for Pawtucket on Friday and Sunday. The right-hander has
been on the DL since May 5 with strained biceps.
Francona says John Lackey will have a bullpen session Friday
before Tuesday’s rehab outing for Pawtucket. The right-hander went
on the DL May 16 with a strained elbow.
