BOSTON (AP) The Boston Red Sox have placed outfielder Shane Victorino and third baseman Will Middlebrooks on the 15-day disabled list and recalled right-hander Alfredo Aceves and infielder Jose Iglesias.
In other moves Friday, both involving catchers, David Ross was activated from the seven-day concussion disabled list and Ryan Lavarnway was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket.
Victorino went on the list retroactive to May 21 with a strained left hamstring. Middlebrooks has a low back strain and left Thursday night's 12-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians after the fourth inning. Victorino is hitting .283 in 34 games. Middlebrooks is batting .201 in 46 games.
