Sox call up Jones, send Matsuzaka to the D.L.

The Red Sox today called up relief pitcher Hunter Jones from Triple-A Pawtucket to take Daisuke Matsuzaka's place on the active roster, this according to Boston.com's Chad Finn. The Japanese righthander was placed on the 15-day disabled list today with a right shoulder strain after being removed from last night's game against Oakland with fatigue in his pitching arm. Jones has already appeared in 3 games for Pawtucket this season, firing 3.2 perfect innings with 2 strikeouts. The big lefthander split last season between Double-A Portland and Pawtucket, posting a combined 7-3 record with a 2.45 ERA and 76 strikeouts in 48 appearances spanning 73.1 innings.
