Baldelli to DL, Bailey called up

After leaving yesterday's game early, Rocco Baldelli has been put on the 15-day disabled list. Jeff Bailey was called up to replace him:

Baldelli left the Red Sox' victory over the Orioles yesterday before the top of the fourth inning with a mild left hamstring strain. The inning before, Baldelli had made it to third base on an error by right fielder Nick Markakis, who overran a fly ball and had it bounce off his glove. Coming around second, Baldelli aggravated an injury that kept him out of the lineup last Wednesday.

Bailey, 30, who lost a battle with Chris Carter for one of the final roster spots this spring, was batting .255 with four homers in 47 at-bats at Pawtucket this season.

Bailey isn't bad, but he's no Rocco. Rocco was versatile with the Sox and could do a lot. We're going to miss the speed and defense with Bailey on the team for the meantime.
