Joel Hanrahan Placed on the Disabled List

After not being available all weekend, Joel Hanrahan was placed on the 15-Day Disabled List. John Farrell said that Hanrahan tweaked his hamstring during his second appearance of the season against the New York Yankees.

Hanrahan has made six apperances this season, collecting three saves and recording an 11.57 ERA. Andrew Bailey will likely replace him in the closer role.

Steven Wright got recalled from AAA-Pawtucket to take Joel Hanrahan’s spot on the roster. Wright was 1-0 in his two starts at Pawtucket with a 2.70 ERA. Considering the nature of the call-up, it may be worth speculating that Alfredo Aceves will be headed back to the bullpen, with Wright moving into the rotation.
