BOSTON (AP) The Red Sox have put right-handed reliever Carson Smith on the 15-day disabled list and utilityman Brock Holt on the seven-day concussion DL before Friday night's game against Cleveland.
Smith is sidelined for the second time. He also started the season on the DL with what he said was a ''very similar'' soreness.
Manager John Farrell said Holt had a ''whiplash'' type feeling after diving for a ball last week. After soreness in his neck subsided ''some of these other symptoms of being a mild concussion were still present.''
To take their spots, catcher and recently converted left fielder Blake Swihart and right-hander Noe Ramirez were recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket.
The 26-year-old Smith made just three appearances since coming off the DL on May 3, allowing only an unearned run in 2 2/3 innings. His first stint on the DL was called a flexor muscle strain.
Holt, 27, is hitting .239 with three homers and 19 RBIs in 35 games.
