ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Boston Red Sox right-hander Nathan Eovaldi has gone on the 10-day injured list because of an elbow injury.

The team said Saturday the pitcher has a loose body in his right elbow. He has had two Tommy John operations and also had surgery last year to remove loose bodies in the elbow.

Eovaldi is 0-0 with a 6.00 ERA in four starts. He allowed one unearned run over six innings in his last start Wednesday night against the New York Yankees.

Boston recalled left-hander Bobby Poyner from Pawtucket. He has appeared in five games with the Triple-A club this season.

Infielder Marco Hernandez is set to start a rehab assignment with Class A Salem. He didn't play last year following left shoulder surgery,

Infielder Brock Holt, out with a scratched right cornea, will remain on the injured list after his rehab assignment with Pawtucket.
