HBT Extra: Will the blown call in the Red Sox-Rays game prompt movement on replay?


Probably not. But people will wring their hands a bit and talk about how important it is to “get replay right” without ever actually getting on with replay.  That won’t change. At least not unless the Red Sox finish a game out of the playoffs.

Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports that Giants pitcher Dereck Rodriguez has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a Grade 1 strain of his hamstring. Rodriguez apparently suffered the injury during Tuesday’s altercation with the Dodgers which featured Yasiel Puig and Nick Hundley.

Rodriguez, 22, has been having an outstanding rookie season, posting a 2.25 ERA with a 65/19 K/BB ratio in 80 innings across 12 starts and two relief appearances.

Casey Kelly will start in Rodriguez’s place against the Reds on Friday.
