Red Sox Getting Hit Hard By Injuries

Yesterday, Daisuke Matsuzaka (right) was scratched with right forearm tightness and couldn't make his start. He has been put on the 15-day DL, now the Sox have Matsuzaka, Jeremy Hermida, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Josh Beckett on the DL. So far this year, Matsuzaka has been decent, going 5-2/4.59/37 after missing most of April. To replace Matsuzaka on the roster, left-handed relief pitcher Dustin Richardson has been called up from AAA. In 2009, Richardson made 3 relief appearances allowing no runs on 3 hits in 3.1 innings. Scott Atchison made the start yesterday, but I don't know who will untimately fill in for Dice-K in the 4th spot in the rotation. So far the Sox have been doing well despite injuries, let's keep it that way!
