Joel Hanrahan to DL, Steven Wright up from Triple-A

Red Sox closer Joel Hanrahan will be placed on the disabled list Tuesday with a strained right hamstring.

Right-handed pitcher Steven Wright will be called up from Triple-A Pawtucket to take his place on the roster. Wright was scratched from his scheduled start on Sunday in case he was needed in Boston.

Hanrahan injured his hamstring in the second game of the season, a win over the Yankees.

‘€œIt’€™s kind of been there every game,’€ Hanrahan said earlier this week. ‘€œIt’€™s just progressively gotten a little worse. It’€™s something if I keep running out there and trying to do it I’€™ll hurt myself more and hurt the rest of the team. We felt the best way was to take it day by day and try to get it right.’€
