Sox make roster moves

The Red Sox made a few temporary roster moves, likely for tonight’s game only, to replace Justin Masterson and Adam LaRoche. Pawtucket righthanded reliever Marcus McBeth and Double A Portland outfielder Josh Reddick will be available tonight.

McBeth has compiled a 2.28 ERA and held opponents to a .176 batting average. Reddick, a breakout hitter during spring training, is batting .277 with a .520 slugging percentage and 13 home runs. At 22, Reddick will become the youngest player to wear a Red Sox major league uniform this season straight from Double A.

To make room on the 40-man roster, the Sox placed Daisuke Matsuazaka on the 60-day disabled list and designated Travis Denker designated for assignment.
