Add Another To The List: Jason Varitek Out 4-6 Weeks

It's bad enough that Victor Martinez just hit the disabled list, but now his backup Jason Varitek is joining him as well:

A major league source tells WBZ-TV's Dan Roche Thursday night that Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek could miss 4-6 weeks due to a leg injury. It's believed that it may be a broken foot.

Fortunately, the Red Sox acquired Kevin Cash earlier in the day to play some catcher. This means that Cash will most likely be the team's starting catcher while Gustavo Molina will be the team's backup.

Varitek was hitting .263 with seven home runs before hitting the disabled list.

How did this all happen? The Red Sox are still wondering the answer to that question.
