- Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon has been reinstated after being on the bereavement list for an undisclosed reason since Monday.
- Outfielder Jeremy Hermida has been placed on the disabled list with a rib injury suffered last week. He's the second Red Sox player this season (Jacoby Ellsbury the other) to go on the disabled list after a rib injury caused by a collision with third baseman Adrian Beltre.
- Reliever Joe Nelson was designated for assignment.
- Right-hander Scott Atchison was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket.

UPDATE: Hermida has fractures in five ribs, an injury very similar to Ellsbury's. "Beltre is going to take out our whole outfield," manager Terry Francona told reporters .
