Red Sox Add Depth To Mighty Bullpen After Brian Johnson Hits 10-Day DL

The Boston Red Sox have added depth to the team’s already impressive bullpen. Boston called up right-handed reliever Austin Maddox from Triple-A Pawtucket to fill Brian Johnson’s spot on the active roster.

Johnson suffered a left shoulder impingement in his start against the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night and had to leave the game early after 2 2/3 innings pitched.

The Red Sox’s bullpen hasn’t allowed an earned run in Boston’s last three games.
