Iglesias called up; Scutaro on DL

As expected, shortstop Jose Iglesias has been called up from AAA Pawtucket. Marco Scutaro is on the disabled list with a strained left oblique.

Terry Francona made it clear that Iglesias is here temporarily as a backup.

Iglesias said he was surprised to get the news and his father started crying when he called to tell him.
