Red Sox put OF Bradley Jr. on disabled list (sprained thumb)

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Boston Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. will have his sprained left thumb in a splint for five to seven days after being injured Tuesday night.

He was injured while reaching for home plate during a slide in Tuesday night's game against the Cleveland Indians .

Manager John Farrell said the tests showed no tears or fractures, but he doesn't know how long the center fielder will be sidelined.

Farrell said had the call been overturned he would have challenged that Gomes blocked the plate and didn't give Bradley a clear lane to slide.

To take Bradley's spot on the roster, the Red Sox called up infielder Deven Marrero from Triple-A Pawtucket.
