Red Sox Disable Vazquez and Johnson, Call up Ps Cuevas and Brasier

The Red Sox announced today that they have placed catcher Christian Vazquez on the 10-day disabled list with a "right fifth finger fracture". They also disabled pitcher Brian Johnson with "hip inflammation". Pitchers William Cuevas and Ryan Brasier were added to the major-league roster from AAA Pawtucket. Presumably, Blake Swihart will serve as the back-up catcher to Sandy Leon—negating any short-term trade of Swihart.
