According to Sean McAdam of CSN New England (via twitter ), Red Sox outfielder J.D. Drew will be placed on the disabled list on Monday due to an impingement in his left shoulder. The Boston Globe reported earlier on Sunday that the condition required an MRI recently.
Drew, 35, is hitting .219 with a .317 OBP, .305 slugging mark and .622 OPS this year. He has not played since Tuesday. While Drew had recently been supplanted by Josh Reddick as the starting right fielder, the Sox are a bit thin at the position right now. The only minor league outfielder who is currently on the 40-man roster is Ryan Kalish, who has not played since April while recovering from a shoulder and then neck injury.
However, in addition to the starting outfield of Reddick, Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford as well as backup Darnell McDonald, the team does have Yamaico Navarro (who played both outfield corners in the minors this year) on the big league roster. And on the PawSox roster, Drew Sutton, who saw a couple of games of major league action in left field this year while with the Sox, is also on the 40-man roster.
