Rick Porcello Hits Disabled List With Arm Strain

The Red Sox placed struggling starting pitcher Rick Porcello on the 15-day disabled list today with a right triceps strain. Newly-acquired reliever Ryan Cook will take Porcello's spot on the roster. After inexplicably getting a huge contract extension at the start of the year, Porcello has been awful—going 5-11, with a 5.88 ERA. Cook will be in uniform (#46) and be available out of the bullpen today.
