Baldelli pulls hamstring, Bailey to Boston


Just hours after leaving Monday's game against the Orioles with an apparent hamstring injury, Boston outfielder Rocco Baldelli has been placed on the 15-day disabled list. According to Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe, Jeff Bailey will be called up from Pawtucket to take Baldelli's place on the roster. The 30-year-old Bailey had been hitting well at Triple-A to start the season, putting up a .255/.407/.511 line with 4 home runs in 47 at bats through the first 12 games for Pawtucket. Hitting mostly from the leadoff spot, Bailey has accumulated as many walks (10) as strikeouts (10), driving in 7 while scoring 11 runs. He will now join fellow 2008 Pawtucket hitting star Chris Carter, against whom he was competing for the final spot on the 25-man roster during spring training, on the Boston bench.
