The Red Sox have placed Junichi Tazawa on the 60-day disabled list with what was described as a "mild left groin strain" and have replaced him on the roster with Chris Woodward, the team announced this afternoon. Tazawa last appearance was August 27 against the White Sox, a game he started but left after allowing 9 runs on 10 hits in four innings of work, and took the loss. Woodward returns to the Sox after being outrighted to Pawtucket September 15 to make room for Diasuke Matsuzaka. Tazawa is currently the sixth-ranked prospect in the organization by SoxProspects.com.
