Red Sox | Joel Hanrahan to DL

The Boston Red Sox placed RP Joel Hanrahan (forearm) on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm strain Tuesday, May 7, and recalled SP Allen Webster from Triple-A Pawtucket in a corresponding move. Webster will make the start Wednesday, May 8, and SP Felix Doubront will move to the bullpen starting Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: It's probably safe now to drop Hanrahan in mixed leagues since Andrew Bailey (biceps) is expected to return from the DL before him. Hanrahan lost his opportunity to work his way back into the closer's role, and now Junichi Tazawa is closing out games. Webster could be valuable in AL leagues depending on how long he'll stick in the rotation.
