Red Sox place Foulke on DL
Well, it turns out there was a reason Keith Foulke was lit up like a Christmas tree over the weekend. And it had nothing to do with a bad back.
The Red Sox placed the veteran reliever on the 15-day disabled list this afternoon because of elbow tendinitis. Jermaine Van Buren was recalled from Pawtucket to replace him.
Foulke, who was inactive for nearly a week because of what the Red Sox described as back spasms, returned to action Saturday night against the Rangers. In one inning, he gave up a walk and a two-run homer. He was worse on Sunday, surrendering seven hits and four runs in two innings.
He didn't mention any arm pain after either game, nor did the Sox indicate his arm was hurting.
Van Buren, who has had two earlier stints in Boston this year, was sent back to Pawtucket late last week. Normally he couldn't be recalled for two weeks, but that rule is waived when a roster move is made because of injury.
Van Buren is 1-0 with a 6.23 ERA in five relief appearances over two stints with the Red Sox in 2006. With the PawSox, he was 2-0 with a 1.47 ERA and a team-leading seven saves in 13 games.
