SEATTLE (AP) — The Boston Red Sox put starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi on the 15-day injured list Sunday with a lower back infection.
Boston recalled right-hander Kutter Crawford from Triple-A Worcester to take Eovaldi’s roster spot. Crawford was the starter for Sunday’s series finale in Seattle.
Eovaldi returned to Boston after starting against the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday. Eovaldi pitched six hits for five innings in Boston’s 1-0 win.
Eovaldi is 4-2 with a 3.16 ERA in 12 starts. The move with Eovaldi was retroactive to June 9th.
Boston had already changed their rotation to give Eovaldi more recovery time before his next move. The Red Sox will start Nick Pivetta for Tuesday’s series opener against Oakland. Manager Alex Cora said Sunday the team is awaiting information on how Eovaldi is responding to treatment before finalizing the rest of the rotation for the series against Oakland.
