Papelbon leaves Red Sox; Bonser activated
Posted on: June 7, 2010 4:56 pm
Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona said today that closer Jonathan Papelbon will be away from the team for three days on a bereavement leave. The reason was not disclosed.
Papelbon's departure created a roster spot to activate right-hander Boof Bonser from the disabled list. Bonser has been out since suffering a groin injury during spring training. He was on a rehab assignment for that injury when he experienced trouble with his surgically repaired right shoulder. Bonser will work out of the bullpen.
