According to Boston Globe’s Pete Abraham, Boston Red Sox reliever Bobby Poyner has been placed on the 10-day DL with a hamstring strain. Reliever Marcus Walden, who was sent down recently for the activation of Eduardo Rodriguez, will be called up to the bigs in his absence.
Poyner seemingly injured himself in Wednesday night’s game against the New York Yankees. During his two-inning outing, the team trainer came out to check on him after his body language indicated his lower-half was in some pain. The Red Sox lefty quickly brushed it off, dismissing the trainer back to the dugout.
The 25-year-old has been one of the few bright spots out of the Sox bullpen this season. He has pitched to the tune of a solid 2.57 ERA with a stellar 10.29 K/9 (strikeouts per nine innings) in seven innings pitched this season.
