After  throwing a bullpen session between games of the rain-delayed doubleheader, Clay Buchholz was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a neck strain. Buchholz has made just one start since June 2.

The move was made retroactive to June 9, meaning Buchholz won't make his scheduled start Saturday in Detroit. Allen Webster will likely make the spot start against the Tigers. Buchholz could be activated from the disabled list as soon as June 24.

The Red Sox also announced catcher David Ross was placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list. Ross was hit in the head by a foul tip over the weekend in Baltimore. Ross was on the concussion list just last month.

Catcher Ryan Lavarnway and reliever Alex Wilson were both called up from Triple-A Pawtucket.
