Boston reinstates infielder/outfielder Danny Santana from 10-day injured list

 

BOSTON, MA  – The Boston Red Sox today placed infielder Christian Arroyo on the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain. The club also returned infielder/outfielder Danny Santana from his injury rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Worcester and reinstated him from the 10-day injured list.

 

Arroyo, 26, was removed from last night’s game against the New York Yankees in the third inning due to injury. This is his third stint on the injured list this season, having missed 16 games with a left hand contusion (May 7-24) and 13 games with a right knee contusion (June 21-July 4). The right-handed hitter has batted .271 (42-for-155) with six home runs and a .792 OPS in 50 games for the Red Sox this season, making 41 starts at second base and one at first base.

 

Santana, 30, was placed on the 10-day injured list on July 9 (retroactive to July 7) with a left quad strain. He appeared in two rehab games with Worcester and went 0-for-4 with two walks, making one start at first base and one in center field. The switch-hitter has played in 31 games with Boston and batted .167 (16-for-96) with one double, one triple, three home runs, and 10 RBI, making 11 starts in center field, 10 at first base, and one in left field.
