Andrew Bailey injury: Torn capsular, damaged labrum

Duane Burleson

BOSTON--Red Sox reliever Andrew Bailey has been placed on the disabled list the team announced on Friday. To take his place, the team called up reliever Jose De La Torre. Bailey was placed on the disabled list with a torn capsular tear and a damaged labrum.

Surgery would end his season and rehabbing the injury would take up to 12 months.

"The only way to fix this is surgery" Bailey said on Friday to the media. "Surgery is on the table, obviously."

Bailey, 29, has made five trips to the disabled list in the last five season in his time with the Oakland Athletics and the Boston Red Sox. Bailey only made 19 appearances with the Red Sox last season and has been mercurial, looking both dominant and terrible through stretches of the season. In 30 games, Bailey has gone 3-1 with a 3.77 ERA with eight saves.

Manager John Farrell said that Bailey will likely be out for the season.

Bailey is eligible for arbitration for one more season and will be a free agent after the 2014 season. He is being paid $4.1 million this season.

De La Torre has made three separate stints with the Red Sox this year. He has a 7.71 ERA in seven innings over four games.
