Bobby Jenks' return to action didn't last very long, as Sean McAdam is reporting that the reliever will return to the disabled list after injuring himself in Tuesday's game against the Yankees, opening up a space for Pawtucket catcher Luis Exposito

Jenks appeared to injure himself on just the fourth pitch of his last outing, and was set to receive an MRI today on his left shoulder to see if an old injury had reoccured.

Exposito is getting the call with Jarrod Saltalamacchia unable to play tonight due to an illness. If everything turns out to be fine with Saltalamacchia, then they will likely send him back down as soon as possible to be replaced by another reliever. It's been a struggle so far in 2011 for Exposito, who's hitting just .223/.277/.331 for the Pawtucket Red Sox.

In other injury news, Gordon Edes says that Jed Lowrie's MRI looks "good", and that Lowrie will look to return to the lineup Thursday night against C.C. Sabathia.
