Uehara to DL

  • P Koji Uehara placed on 15 day DL
  • OF Leonys Martin recalled from AAA [ Link ]

This was done because Josh Hamilton had to go into the hospital on Friday due to a stomach virus.  It was obviously decided to go with one less pitcher than one less position player, due to the positional swapout here.  I wasn’t aware of Uehara being hurt, really – I wonder if this is one of those “use the DL when they’re not truly hurt” kind of moves.  Oh well, Martin is probably only up here for a few games, then he goes back down.  Not a big deal here, IMO.
