Michael Chavis is about to get another chance with the Boston Red Sox.

The Red Sox announced Thursday that Chavis has been called up from Triple-A Worcester and that shortstop Christian Arroyo has been placed on the 10-day injured list retroactive to June 21. 

Arroyo is dealing with a right knee contusion, per the team. He's played well for the Red Sox in his second season with Boston. Arroyo is batting .264 with four home runs, 19 RBI and a .324 on-base percentage in 41 games for the Sox this season.

The Red Sox will finish their three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field on Thursday night. Boston will welcome the rival New York Yankees to Fenway Park for a three-game series beginning Friday night.
