Rutledge was placed on the 7-day concussion DL on Saturday, MassLive.com reports. Left hip soreness was cited as the reason for Rutledge's scratch Friday, and apparently he's also dealing with concussion symptoms. It's uncertain if he will need more than seven days. Tzu-Wei Lin was brought up Saturday to bolster the team's infield depth.
Rutledge (hip) was moved to the 10-day disabled list Saturday, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports. Rutledge was scratched from Friday's lineup due to the hip injury, and it appears it's serious enough to warrant a trip to the disabled list. The Red Sox recalled Tzu-Wei Lin on Saturday to replace him on the 25-man roster.
Rutledge (hip) was a late scratch from the Red Sox lineup Friday, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports. In his place, Dustin Pedroia was inserted into the lineup after returning from a sore back. Rutledge should be considered day-to-day for now, but Boston may choose to give the infielder a couple of days to get back to 100 percent. If that indeed is the case, look for Deven Marrero to take over at third again Saturday.
Rutledge is not in the lineup Thursday against the Phillies, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports. Rutledge will cede the second straight start to Pablo Sandoval at third base. Rutledge is a superior defender at third base, although the Red Sox may be willing to give Sandoval an extended look at the hot corner just to see if they have anything left to squeeze out of their big-dollar investment.
Rutledge is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Phillies, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Following a string of four consecutive starts, Rutledge will give way to the struggling Pablo Sandoval at third base. Until Sandoval, who is batting .211 on the season, demonstrates a dramatic turnaround offensively, it looks like Rutledge could serve as the primary starter at the hot corner. Rutledge doesn't have as high of a ceiling as a hitter like Sandoval, but he's a more capable defender at the position.
