Red Sox put OF McDonald on DL, call up OF Reddick


DETROIT (AP) - The Boston Red Sox have placed outfielder Darnell McDonald on the disabled list with a left quadriceps injury.

Boston called up outfielder Josh Reddick from Triple-A Pawtucket and put him in right field against the Detroit Tigers on Thursday.

McDonald is hitting .143 in 21 at-bats over 19 games this season. Reddick played a total of 56 games with a .182 batting average the previous two seasons for Boston.

Red Sox manager Terry Francona says Bobby Jenks will pitch an inning for Pawtucket on Friday and Sunday. The right-hander has been on the DL since May 5 with strained biceps.

Francona says John Lackey will have a bullpen session Friday before Tuesday's rehab outing for Pawtucket. The right-hander went on the DL May 16 with a strained elbow.
