Report: Red Sox' Hanrahan headed to DL

The SportsXchange

Boston Red Sox closer Joel Hanrahan will be placed on the disabled list Tuesday due to lingering right hamstring soreness, according to multiple reports.

Hanrahan rested for a few days, but the issue didn't improve.

The 31-year-old saved three of his four chances this season, but has an 11.57 ERA, 2.36 WHIP and five walks 4 2/3 innings. He's also surrendered three home runs.

Set-up man Andrew Bailey will close while Hanrahan is out. The righty serves as the Oakland A's closer from 2009-11, and saved 75 games during that time. He has struck out nine batters in 5 1/3 innings so far this season.

To take Hanrahan's spot on the roster, the Red Sox summoned right-hander Steven Wright from Triple-A Pawtucket.
