The injury bug continues to bite Boston, as reliever Vicente Padilla is headed to the DL with biceps soreness. Clayton Mortensen has been called up.
Based on the quotes in the Globe piece about it, the injury doesn't sound too serious. It sounds more like Padilla could use a few days off, and Bobby V didn't feel like A) going short-handed or B) having to send Ryan Lavarnway or Ryan Kalish or some other offensive player down to bring up Mortensen while they were short-handed.
That makes 24 unique DL stints this year. Ouch.
