From Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald comes word that the Red Sox have placed third baseman Will Middlebrooks on the 15-day disabled list with a Grade 1 right calf strain. Brock Holt was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket in a corresponding 25-man roster move and will be at Fenway Park on Sunday.

The Red Sox did not consider calling up top infield prospect Garin Cecchini, who is off to a great start offensively this year in his first taste of the Triple-A level but needs a little more defensive seasoning.

Jonathan Herrera and Holt will share time at third base while Middlebrooks is out.

Calf strains can sometimes take four weeks to fully recover from, though this one seems minor.

    Calf strain during pre-game warm-ups? Are we talking baseball?
    This dude is high maintenance.

    I’d rather him be on the DL than making no impact playing through an injury, I still hold out hope for this guy
