Left Hamstring Strain Puts Crawford On DL

Carl Crawford was placed on the 15-day disabled list this afternoon with a left hamstring strain, and Josh Reddick was summoned from Pawtucket.

Terry Francona said the healing time for Crawford's injury would be roughly 10-14 days, so the move was a "no brainer".

In 52 games for the PawSox, Reddick is batting .230/.333/.508, with 14 home runs. He batted .221 in May and is hitting .115 in June. His average with runners on base is only .205. ... Reddick was 5-for-13 in five games with the Red Sox in late May and early June.
