CLEVELAND (AP) — The Boston Red Sox have placed outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. on the disabled list with a sprained left thumb.
Bradley was injured while reaching for home plate during a slide in Tuesday night’s game against the Cleveland Indians. He was sent back to Boston for an MRI on Wednesday.
To fill his spot on the roster, the Red Sox called up infielder Deven Marrero from Triple-A Pawtucket.
