The Red Sox have placed reliever Andrew Bailey (shoulder) on the disabled list for a second time this season. Taking his place on the roster is Jose De La Torre, who will be available and ready for Friday's opener against the Yankees. In 30 games this season, Bailey went 3-1 with a 3.77 ERA with eight saves. In 28 2/3 innings, he allowed 12 earned runs. After Joel Hanrahan went down with season-ending Tommy John surgery, he was tabbed the team's closer. But after blowing three of six chances, Koji Uehara replaced him in that role and manager John Farrell confirmed that Uehara will stay there on Thursday. De La Torre is being recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket. In four appearances with the big league club this season, De La Torre has allowed six runs on seven hits and six walks. In seven innings he has fanned nine. In 24 games with the PawSox, De La Torre has yielded eight earned runs over 41 1/3 innings. Peter Gammons was first to report the news on Friday.
