Atchison, Hill up; Wheeler, Jenks to DL

The Red Sox moved Bobby Jenks and Dan Wheeler to the Disabled List on Thursday morning, calling up right-hander Scott Atchison and left-hander Rich Hill to bolster a worn out bullpen. The Red Sox used eight pitchers, including Friday’s scheduled starter Daisuke Matsuzaka, in a five-hour, rain-delayed 5-3 loss to the Angels at Fenway last night.

Manager Terry Francona is expected to detail the official injuries shortly.

I don’t suppose there’s any chance the third base coach could join them on the DL? He sends runners into almost certain outs a lot, this year and last. Why send Scutaro on a desperation try to win the game when there’s only one out. If he sticks on third, a fly ball or a squeeze (ho ho, I know: Francona do something imaginative?) will do.
Francona (was any dog any more loyal than the Red Sox manager?) protects Bogar every time he gets ambitious and sends somebody into a certain out. Great for Bogar; not so great for the Red Sox.
