The Boston Red Sox placed outfielder Shane Victorino and third baseman Will Middlebrooks on the 15-day disabled list and called up shortstop Jose Iglesias and reliever Alfredo Aceves from Triple-A Pawtucket, the team announced.

Victorino is out with a left hamstring strain and his DL stint is retroactive to May 21. Middlebrooks has a lower back strain.

Victorino has been dealing with lower back stiffness since the end of April, forcing him to miss seven games. He hasn't played since Monday dealing with the hamstring injury.

He is hitting .283 with four doubles, two homers, 10 RBI and 20 runs in 34 games this season.
