BOSTON (AP) -The Boston Red Sox placed backup infielder Alex Cora on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a sprained right elbow and called up Joe Thurston from Triple-A Pawtucket.
Cora, who is 3-for-3 in three games this season, was placed on the list retroactive to last Thursday. Thurston, who spent the past two seasons in the Philadelphia organization, hit .351 with a homer and three RBIs in 20 games at Pawtucket.
Cora joins third baseman Mike Lowell, who has a sprained left thumb, on the disabled list. Rookie infielder Jed Lowrie was called up from Pawtucket to take Lowell's roster spot.
