Dice-K Placed on 15-Day DL

Following up on Daisuke Matsuzaka’s MRI and showing inflammation and weakness in his rotator cuff, he’s now been placed on the 15-Day DL, conveniently making room for John Smoltz.

Given Dice-K’s recent subpar performance, this action comes as no surprise, especially now with Smoltz ready to join Red Sox.

The Red Sox recalled catcher Dusty Brown, 27, from Triple-A Pawtucket will be active for today’s game against the Atlanta Braves. This will be his first stint in the Major Leagues. The right-handed hitter is batting .239 with two home runs and 12 RBI over 47 games with Triple-A Pawtucket this season.
