Red Sox place LHP Bobby Poyner on 10-day disabled list

Club recalls right-handed pitcher Marcus Walden from Triple-A Pawtucket

Prior to tonight's game against the New York Yankees, the Boston Red Sox placed left-handed pitcher Bobby Poyner on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain. To fill Poyner's spot on the 25-man roster, the Red Sox recalled right-handed pitcher Marcus Walden from Triple-A Pawtucket.

President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski made the announcement.

President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski made the announcement.

Poyner, 25, has made six relief appearances-the first of his major league career-for Boston this season, after never having pitched above the Double-A level prior to 2018. The left-hander allowed two runs on eight hits in 7.0 innings, striking out eight batters and walking only one. Selected by Boston in the 14th round of the 2015 June Draft, Poyner has appeared in 99 minor league games, posting a 2.35 ERA (39 ER/149.2 IP) and converting 40 of 44 save opportunities.

Walden, 29, made his first career major league Opening Day roster after attending spring training with the Red Sox as a non-roster invitee. The right-hander appeared in three big league games before being optioned to Pawtucket on April 8, allowing two runs on four hits with three strikeouts against one walk in 5.0 innings pitched. Walden earned Pawtucket's Most Valuable Pitcher Award in 2017, his first season in the Red Sox organization. In 218 career minor league games (117 starts), he is 46-45 with a 3.84 ERA (336 ER/787.0 IP).
