The Boston Red Sox announced on Thursday that they’ve placed third baseman Rafael Devers on the 10-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation. The move is retroactive to Wednesday, July 11.
As a corresponding move, the Sox recalled infielder Tzu-Wei Lin from Triple-A Pawtucket. Lin has batted just .162 with a .460 OPS in 41 plate appearances at the major league level in 2018.
Red Sox manager Alex Cora told reporters that Devers has been “pretty banged up” recently, via the Boston Herald’s Jason Mastrodonato on Twitter. He’ll be eligible to come off the DL after the All-Star break concludes.
Devers is batting .241 with 14 home runs and 48 RBIs through 89 games in his first full major league season. He had been heating up at the plate prior to his injury, with an .819 OPS, four homers, and 16 RBIs in his last 20 games.
