Lackey hits disabled list with elbow strain

Struggling Red Sox starting pitcher John Lackey has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain. Lackey was expected to start Tuesday night -- and unveil a new windup -- but instead Tim Wakefield will be the Boston starter.

As a corresponding move, the Red Sox have promoted Scott Atchison from Triple-A Pawtucket. He has appeared in one game for the Red Sox this season, working 3 2/3 innings and allowing three earned runs. Last season, his first with Boston, he had a 4.50 ERA in 43 games.

Lackey, 32, has had a disastrous 2011 season to this point. He's 2-5 with an 8.01 ERA and 1.81 WHIP. He leads the AL with 35 earned runs in just 39 1/3 innings. Last year he was 14-11 with a 4.40 ERA.

Lackey's in the second year of a five-year, $82.5 million contract.

All Michael Bowden has done at Pawtucket this year is a 1-0 record, 1.59 ERA, 4 BB, 28 K in 23 innings, with a .183 opponents' average.  You also have Felix Doubront (1.98 ERA in 4 starts).  But hey, let's call up old re-tread Scott Atchison.  After all, he was another one of Theo's great bullpen signings.
