Cameron, Ellsbury Placed on Disabled List

The Red Sox outfield got a little less crowded on Tuesday, as the Red Sox placed both Mike Cameron and Jacoby Ellsbury on the disabled list. Both players missed most of the weekend series against the Rays for very different ailments.

Cameron first had kidney stones, and then was hospitalized on Monday for abdominal pain. It was later revealed he had “an abdominal tear near the attachment site of the abdominal muscle and the pelvis,” which is another way to say ‘something really, really painful.’ He said on Tuesday night that surgery may be an option.

Ellsbury, meanwhile, has been out of the lineup since a nasty collision with Adrian Beltre on April 11 against the Royals. He suffered a “left chest contusion,” which wasn’t bad considering he could have suffered broken ribs.

In their places, the Red Sox called up outfielders Josh Reddick and Darnell McDonald. Reddick was inserted into the starting lineup in center field for Tuesday night’s game against the Rangers, relegating Bill Hall to the bench. Good move, Francona (Hall is hitting .091).
