The Boston Red Sox kick off a three-game weekend set with the Baltimore Orioles on Friday night at Camden Yards, but they needed to make a few roster moves before first pitch.
Left-handed pitcher Brian Johnson was reinstated from the injured list Friday afternoon, but shortly after adding an arm, Boston lost another.
Heath Hembree was placed on the 10-day IL with a right elbow extensor strain, the team announced Friday evening. Lefty Josh Taylor will be recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket.
First pitch for Friday’s series opener is set for 7:05 p.m. ET.
