TORONTO (AP) — Red Sox reliever Bobby Jenks is likely to miss the rest of the season and playoffs due to lingering pain in his back.

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said Jenks did not travel with the team to Toronto and is set to see a doctor on Wednesday. Jenks last pitched July 7 against Baltimore. He was transferred to the 60-day DL Sept. 1 when Boston acquired outfielder Conor Jackson from Oakland.

Francona also said left-hander Erik Bedard (left knee) will not make his next scheduled start, Friday at Tampa Bay. Bedard also missed a month with knee soreness while with Seattle earlier this season.

The Red Sox also recalled catcher Ryan Lavarnway and right-hander Kyle Weiland from Triple-A Pawtucket, and purchased the contract of infielder Nate Spears.
