Red Sox | Scott Atchison placed on disabled list

The Boston Red Sox have placed RP Scott Atchison (forearm) on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm strain. RP Junichi Tazawa will be recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket to take his spot on the 25-man roster. Although the injury is considered minor, pitching coach Bob McClure said it greatly diminishes the effectiveness of a pitcher who relies so heavily on cutters and breaking balls like Atchison. "Throwing the ball straight, I seem to be all right for the most part," Atchison said. "As soon as I spin stuff, I'm still feeling it."
