• Red Sox place Hanrahan (hamstring) on DL

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Apr 17, 2013
    I don't think four days would have been enough, but 15 will be [more than enough]," Hanrahan said. The waiting ended Tuesday, when the Red Sox placed Hanrahan on the disabled list, retroactive to Sunday, with what the team is calling a strained right hamstring. Though Hanrahan isn't an excuse maker, he doesn't dispute that the hamstring injury could have impacted some of his pitches, particularly his breaking ball. The righty has been dealing with a right hamstring injury that he first felt in the Red Sox's second game of the season at Yankee Stadium. Wright had been in the starting rotation for the PawSox, holding opposing hitters to a .167 average in three starts, but he'll be used as a long man out of the bullpen by the Red Sox. Andrew Bailey, who gave up the game-tying run in the ninth on Monday the first time he has been scored upon this season but was credited with the win when Mike Napoli hit a walk-off double in the bottom of the frame, will continue as Boston's closer in the interim.
