Pedroia hits DL, Sanchez called up from Pawtucket


The Red Sox have placed Dustin Pedroia on the 15-day disabled list with a non-displaced fracture of the navicular bone on his left foot and recalled Angel Sanchez from Triple-A Pawtucket. Pedroia was having a torrid June, hitting .374/.449/.626 with 4 home runs and 16 RBI in 23 games.

Sanchez, 26, was hitting .274/.348/.327 in 62 games with Pawtucket. Sanchez was with Boston earlier this season, filling in for Marco Scutaro on May 20th and going 0 for 3. He collected his first major league action with the Kansas City Royals in 2006, accumulating six hits in eight games. Sanchez, a career .279/.332/.353 hitter in eight minor league seasons between the Boston, Toronto and Kansas City organizations, is adept at both middle infield positions.
