Red Sox Activate Ian Kinsler, Place Rafael Devers on 10-Day Disabled List
One goes in and one comes out for the Boston Red Sox.
At least that’s the way it broke down Friday, as the Red Sox activated second baseman Ian Kinsler from the disabled list, but placed third baseman Rafael Devers on the 10-day disabled list in a corresponding move.
Absent for the last 11 games due to a left hamstring strain, the 36-year-old Kinsler will look to pick up where he left off, as he went 4-for-10 with a double and two RBIs in three post-deadline games with the Red Sox. The Red Sox, who acquired the veteran infielder the night before the trade deadline, are 2-1 with Kinsler in their lineup.
He’ll get the start at second and bat sixth in their lineup Friday night at Fenway Park.
The Red Sox have termed Devers’ injury a left hamstring strain.
The move to the disabled list (retroactive to yesterday) comes with Devers delivering at the dish, with 11 hits in his last 41 at-bats. The 21-year-old Devers has two homers and six RBIs over that span. Overall, Devers is hitting .242 with 16 homers and 55 RBIs this season, while this will be his third trip of the year to the disabled list.
The Red Sox will begin a seven-game homestand with tonight’s 7:05 p.m. tilt against the Tampa Bay Rays.
