Boston, MA – The Boston Red Sox placed outfielder Ryan Sweeney on the 15-day disabled list with a broken left hand among a slew of roster moves Tuesday.
Sweeney left Monday's 7-3 series-opening win against Detroit after injuring his left hand. He punched a door after grounding out in the eighth inning and had to leave the game after attempting warm-up throws in the ninth.
The knuckle on his pinkie finger was the most affected, and X-rays taken later on revealed the depth of the injury.
Over 63 games with Boston this season, he was hitting just .260 with 16 RBI.
Boston also recalled outfielder Ryan Kalish and pitcher Clayton Mortensen from Triple-A Pawtucket and activated pitcher Chris Carpenter from the 60-day DL and optioned him to Pawtucket.
For Kalish, it will be his second call-up this season. Over 18 games from June 17-July 7, he hit .217 with two doubles, five RBI and seven runs scored.
Mortensen pitched to a 1.33 earned run average in 20 1/3 innings over nine previous Red Sox appearances in 2012.
Carpenter, who hasn't taken the mound during the regular season after recovering from right elbow surgery, fanned 16 and allowed only seven hits over four rehab starts throughout the minors.
