BOSTON (WHDH) — Michael Wacha woke up this morning to take the mound for the Red Sox’s matinee game against the Chicago White Sox. Instead, when Boston and Chicago take the field this morning, Wacha will be on the injured list and right-hander Tanner Houck will be on the mend.
Boston cited left rib irritation as the reason for Wacha’s inclusion on the injured list. The move to IR will put Wacha on hold for at least the next 15 days.
Houck, 25, is touting a 5.14 ERA and a 2-2 record into his early fourth start of the season.
The first pitch is scheduled for 11:35 a.m. at Fenway Park, an early start to Mother’s Day for the two clubs.
