BOSTON -- Steven Wright has been moved to the disabled list, retroactive to last Monday, after injuring his shoulder in the series against the Dodgers. While it’s still just inflammation, not structural damage, there’s still some concern surrounding the injury.
“It’s not progressing the way I thought it was going to,” Wright said following the announcement. “It just hurts, man. I don’t want to go out there with too much pain because I don’t want to start compensating . . .
“It was getting better and it’s nice to know that it’s not structural. But every time I get up to my arm slot it just pinches.”
With Clay Buchholz moving back into the starting rotation as Wright's replacement, the Red Sox needed Wright's roster spot to bring in more bullpen help. They also announced that Hanley Ramirez is being placed on the bereavement list, meaning a series of roster moves will have to be made before Monday's makeup game in Cleveland.
