Clay Buchholz joined Jed Lowrie and Carl Crawford on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday as the Red Sox placed the right-handed starter on shelf with lower back strain. He is the third Red Sox player to land on the DL in as many days.
Taking his spot on the staff is lefty Andrew Miller, who will take Buchholz's place in the rotation and will start Monday in series opener against the Padres. Miller was selected from Triple-A Pawtucket and added to the 40-man roster while the move with Buchholz is retroactive to June 17.
The 26-year-old Buchholz is 6-3 with a 3.48 ERA, allowing 76 hits with 60 strikeouts and 31 walks in 14 starts. He is undefeated in nine straight starts since the beginning of May, compiling a 5-0 record with a 2.59 ERA in that span. Since the start of the 2010 season, Buchholz ranks third among qualifying American League pitchers in both ERA (2.70) and winning percentage (.697).
For Miller, this is his first career stint with...

For the first time since April 29, the Red Sox suffered a loss in a game when the opponent featured a left-handed starter. Brewers southpaw Randy Wolf spread nine hits over seven innings, limiting the Sox to just two runs in Milwaukee's 4-2 victory, thus snapping a streak of 11 straight Sox wins in games against southpaw starters.
Wolf's fine effort prevented Sox starter Jon Lester from becoming the first pitcher in the majors to 10 wins. Lester allowed back-to-back homers to start the game -- the first by leadoff man Rickie Weeks having come one pitch after Adrian Gonzalez dropped a foul pop-up, with Corey Hart following with a longball on the next pitch. Lester's former batterymate, Brewers catcher George Kottaras, also delivered a solo homer to start a two-run third inning. The three homers allowed matched a career-high against Lester, the first such instance having come on Opening Day this year against the Rangers.
The Sox had at least one...
The Red Sox have recalled outfielder Josh Reddick ftom Triple-A Pawtucket and placed Carl Crawford on the disabled list with a strained hamstring.

One day after he suffered a Grade 1 hamstring strain, Carl Crawford is out of the Red Sox lineup. While a move has not yet been announced, outfielder Josh Reddick -- who hit two homers for Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday -- is back up with the team to provide outfield depth in light of the injury.
Reddick, however, is not in the Sox' starting lineup on a day when left-hander Randy Wolf is on the mound for the Brewers. Neither, for that matter, is the left-handed hitting J.D. Drew (4-for-11 with two homers against Wolf), as the Sox will instead feature Darnell McDonald and Mike Cameron in the two outfield corners.
