Red Sox Place Relievers Jenks, Wheeler On DL

Red Sox send reliever Jenks to disabled list

      BOSTON (AP) – The Boston Red Sox have put struggling reliever
Bobby Jenks on the 15-day disabled list after his right arm cramped
up during a loss to the Los Angeles Angels.
      The Red Sox said Thursday that Jenks (1-2) has a strained right
biceps and placed him on the DL retroactive to Monday. He cramped
up while warming during Boston's 13-inning loss Wednesday.
      The right-hander has a 9.35 ERA in 11 appearances this season.
      Boston also placed right-handed reliever Dan Wheeler on the
15-day DL with a strained left calf. Wheeler allowed a double, home
run and walked one while facing four batters during the Angels' 5-3
win, which was interrupted for more than 2 1/2 hours because of
rain.
      The Red Sox called up right-hander Scott Atchison and
left-hander Rich Hill from Triple-A Pawtucket.
