Over the past few days there have been some Red Sox roster moves and injuries. Here is the latest.

Injuries:

Stephen Drew (.213/.313/.409) has been put on the 15-day DL with a strain in his right hamstring. His DL date is retroactive to June 29th. He is expected to be back into game action mid July.

Andrew Miller (1-2, 2.64 ERA) has been put on the 15-day DL with an injury to his right foot. He injured his foot jogging to back up home plate in a game against the Angels on July 6th. X-rays were negative on his foot, however he is in a walking boot and will be headed back to Boston to see a specialist. No return date is available at this time.

Shane Victorino (.285/.331/.395) is once again nursing a sore left hamstring. His hamstring tightened up on him during the July 6th game against the Angels. He is labeled as day-to-day, but this issue is one to watch based on his history with his legs this season.
