Sox Activate Wakefield, Drew to DL

The Boston Red Sox activated RHP Tim Wakefield prior to tonight's baseball game against the New York Yankees. Wakefield, 7-8 3.67 ERA, had been on the DL with stiffness in the back of his right shoulder. OF J.D. Drew has been placed on the DL with back spasms. Drew has missed the last six games and the Sox are hopeful he'll be ready to play next week when he is eligible to be activated.

In other roster moves, RHP Chris Smith was optioned to Pawtucket prior to tonight's game and OF Joe Thurston was called up to take Smith's place on the 25-man roster. RHP Bartolo Colon was transfered from the 15-day to 60-day DL to open up a spot for Thurston on the 40-man roster.
