CHICAGO (AP) — The Boston Red Sox placed pitcher Rich Hill on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left knee and recalled reliever Phillips Valdez from Triple-A Worcester before their game against the Chicago Cubs. Chicago on Saturday.

Hill (4-4, 4.20 ERA) exited Friday’s game against the Cubs during the three-run fifth inning, and Chicago rallied to beat the Red Sox 6-5.

Hill was visited by an athletic trainer and walked out after hitting Patrick Wisdom to load the bases with two outs.

Valdez went 0-1 with 5.40 in 11 appearances for Boston this season. The right-hander is 0-0 with a 4.26 ERA with Worcester.
