Saltalamacchia latest to catch injury bug
Is there any end to the injury barrage? Today’s news is that Jarrod Saltalamacchia has been placed on the disabled list with a lower right leg infection. Dusty Brown will take his place on the roster. Saltalamacchia is currently at Massachusetts General Hospital getting treated, and the hope is that they can knock this infection out within a few days.
Meanwhile, Josh Beckett made big news by getting shelled in his last two starts. But he was dominant in his first three starts off the DL so perhaps it’s not quite panic city yet. That said, the Sox desperately need Beckett to come up big tonight.
The Tigers didn’t do the Red Sox any favors in the Bronx. They are about to get swept by the Yankees.The Rays start a West Coast trip in Oakland tonight.
