After John Farrell hinted at it following his start Tuesday night, the Red Sox officially placed Justin Masterson on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis on Thursday. In the corresponding move, the team has recalled reliever Robbie Ross Jr. from Triple-A Pawtucket. The team also announced Steven Wright will make Masterson's scheduled start on Sunday. Wright threw 5 2/3 innings in relief of Masterson on Tuesday allowing three runs and striking out four. Ross Jr. is back with the team after being sent down to Pawtucket over the weekend. The left-handed reliever has made 13 appearances, including eight scoreless outings, and posted a 6.17 ERA. For more Red Sox news, visit weei.com/redsox.
