Red Sox put C Ross on DL with sore foot, add Kelly

BOSTON (AP) The Boston Red Sox have put catcher David Ross on the 15-day disabled list because of an injury right foot injury.

Boston also activated newly acquired right-hander Joe Kelly before Saturday's game against the New York Yankees.

Ross is sidelined with plantar fasciitis, a lingering condition that flared up as he ran out a grounder in the sixth inning Friday night.

Catcher Dan Butler was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket and will split time with Christian Vazquez.

A day after getting the win in his major league debut, pitcher Anthony Ranaudo was sent to Pawtucket to make room for Kelly. He was acquired from St. Louis on Thursday in the John Lackey trade and will start against his former team Tuesday at St. Louis.
