Boston Red Sox Transactions: Darnell McDonald Placed On 15-Day DL; Mauro Gomez Called-Up

The Boston Red Sox didn't make any changes to their nine-man batting lineup for Sunday's matinee against the Cleveland Indians, but hours before the series finale the Red Sox did make some changes to their 25-man roster. Boston placed outfielder Darnell McDonald on the 15-day disable list and replaced him by calling up Mauro Gomez from Triple-A Pawtucket.

McDonald was placed on the DL because of a mysterious oblique injury which, according to the Boston Herald, has no apparent cause. McDonald is now the fifth Red Sox outfielder to be placed on the DL, as Carl Crawford, Jacoby Ellsbury, Jason Repko and Ryan Kalish are all recovering from injuries.

Meanwhile, though the 27-year-old Gomez is a first-basemen, he is expected to replace McDonald's right-handed bat off the bench.
