Carson Smith Is Placed On The Ten-Day DL With Right Shoulder Subluxation

The Red Sox bullpen suffered a major blow today as reliever Carson Smith was placed on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder subluxation. Smith's spot on the 25-man roster has been filled by left-handed reliever Bobby Poyner—who was recalled from the team's AAA Pawtucket farm club. The 28-year-old Smith has made just 29 appearances over three seasons in Carmine Hose—this year, going 1-1 with a 3.77 ERA in just 14.1 innings of work. Smith was acquired before the 2016 season—along with Roenis Elias—in a trade with the Seattle Mariners for Jonathan Aro and Wade Miley.
