Wakefield has broken rib, on DL for at least 3 weeks
BOSTON -- Red Sox knuckleballer Tim Wakefield has a broken rib and is expected to spend at least three weeks on the disabled list, manager Terry Francona said today.
Francona said Wakefield doesn't remember how he injured himself. It might have been from sleeping on it wrong.
"He's actually been pitching with pain in his ribs for about a month or six weeks," Francona said the Red Sox played Texas. "The DL is a definite."
The AL East-leading Red Sox did not announce a starter to take Wakefield's place for Saturday's game at Seattle.
