Red Sox place Rich Hill on 15-day disabled list

Mark Melancon back in the bullpen

The Red Sox placed lefthanded reliever Rich Hill on the 15-day disabled list before Sunday’s 4-3 loss to the Nationals because of an elbow strain, prompting the call-up of righthander Mark Melancon from Triple A Pawtucket.

The move came just over a year to the day of Hill’s Tommy John surgery. Hill is 1-0 this season with a 2.63 ERA in 17 appearances.
