It’s official: the Red Sox have placed Justin Masterson on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis.

Masterson has a 6.37 ERA in seven starts this season, with his last two being terrible. Sox manager John Farrell said Masterson was “clearly not right.” For his part, Masterson is not pleased with the move and says he’s feeling fine, just pitching like crap, which suggests that this is the Sox simply removing him from action. Not that you can blame them.
