After working out on the filed yesterday in Anaheim, Stephen Drew was placed on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to June 29th). The hamstring injury that has bedeviled the shortstop for while has not shown enough improvement—and the Red Sox are short in the bullpen. Right-handed relief pitcher Jose De La Torre was called up from AAA to slot into the 'pen. De La Torre has struck out 45 batters in just 38 1/3 innings with Pawtucket.
