Baseball notes: Red Sox put Dustin Pedroia on 10-day DL – Los Angeles Times
Boston made the move before Tuesday night’s home game against Cleveland. The team also added reliever Addison Reed to the roster, one day after obtaining him in a trade with the New York Mets for three minor league pitchers.
Pedroia, who leads the Red Sox with a .307 batting average, is on the DL for the second time this season. He missed nine games in early June with a sprained left wrist.
Gray to start Thursday
Both pitchers joined the team Tuesday at Yankee Stadium. Manager Joe Girardi said he will use a six-man rotation this week but plans to go back to five starters next week. Rookie Jordan Montgomery is likely to be dropped.
Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly said right-hander Edinson Volquez (left knee) and shortstop J.T. Riddle (left shoulder) will miss the rest of the season because of injuries that may require surgery. … The Chicago White Sox placed outfielder Willy Garcia on the seven-day disabled list because of a concussion he suffered during a frightening collision with second baseman Yoan Moncada on Monday. … The Oakland Athletics released reliever John Axford, less than a week after he was designated for assignment.
