Red Sox activate LHP Eduardo Rodriguez from 10-day DL
CHICAGO (AP) — The Boston Red Sox have activated left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez, catcher Christian Vazquez and knuckleballer Steven Wright from the 10-day disabled list.
Rodriguez had been sidelined by a sprained right ankle. Vazquez was out with a broken finger, and Wright had been dealing with left knee inflammation.
Rodriguez and Vazquez are slated to start Saturday's game against the Chicago White Sox. Rodriguez hasn't pitched in a big league game since July 14.
HOUSTON (AP) — Dustin Pedroia's return from the disabled list lasted three games.
The four-time All-Star second baseman was put back on the DL by the Boston Red Sox on Saturday because of left knee inflammation.
The 34-year-old had knee surgery in October, made his season debut May 26 and went 1 for 11 with two walks. He was a late scratch from the lineup Thursday because of lingering soreness.
BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox pitcher Carson Smith dislocated his pitching shoulder during a tantrum and went on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, an injury Boston said could be major.
The 28-year-old right-hander was hurt when he threw his glove in the dugout after leaving Monday night's 6-5 loss to Oakland. He entered with the Red Sox trailing 5-4 in the eighth, allowed Khris Davis' leadoff home run, then retired three straight batters. Brian Johnson relieved to start the ninth.
