Salty goes on DL; Brown is recalled

Jarrod Saltalamacchia has an infection of some sort and Dusty Brown was called up.

More info as it becomes available.

UPDATE. 4:19 p.m.: Just when you think nothing else can go wrong with this team. Saltalamacchia had a sore lower right leg yesterday and was sent over to Mass General to get it checked on.

Turns out it’s an infection. Tests have ruled out the MRSA virus. They’re checking on staph now. He’s in the hospital hooked up to IV antibiotics and will be for the next 2-3 days.

The hope is Saltalamacchia will feel better in a day or two. But in the meantime, the Sox needed a catcher and Brown was called up.

Beyond that, pretty quiet here so far. The annual team photo was today. The players also took group photos with team employees. That consumed 30 minutes or so.
