Red Sox Spring Training 2012: John Lackey Added To 60-Day DL, Rich Hill Added To 40-Man Roster

The Boston Red Sox announced that pitchers John Lackey and Bobby Jenks have been added to the 60-day disabled list (via NESN). The team also added pitcher Rich Hill, who signed a minor league deal with the Red Sox last December, to their 40-man roster (via WEEI.com).

Both Lackey and Hill have had recent Tommy John surgery, last June for Hill and last December for Lackey. Jenks had procedures done on his back in the offseason. Jenks' addition made room for pitcher Chris Carpenter, who the Red Sox acquired from the Cubs as compensation for former general manager Theo Epstein.

Lackey was 12-12 last season for Boston with a 6.41 ERA. As for Hill, the team now thinks that he will be able to make some rehab appearances in April.
