BOSTON (CBS) –  The Boston Red Sox placed Joel Hanrahan on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm strain, GM Ben Cherington announced on Tuesday.

To fill Hanrahan’s spot on the 25-man roster, right-hander Allen Webster was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket and is slated to start Wednesday night’s game against the Twins at Fenway Park.

Felix Doubront, who was scheduled to start on Wednesday, will now be available out of the bullpen beginning on Tuesday.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said on Tuesday that Junichi Tazawa will handle the team’s closing duties with both Hanrahan and Andrew Bailey on the DL.

This is Hanrahan’s second trip to the disabled list this season after missing 15 games from April 14-29 due to a right hamstring strain.  The 31-year-old made three appearances since being activated, allowing two runs over 2.2 innings of work.

For the season, Hanrahan is 0-1 with four saves and a 9.82 ERA over nine relief outings.

The 23-year-old Webster made his major league debut for the Red Sox in the second game of a doubleheader against the Royals on April 21, giving up three runs (two earned) and striking out five over six innings while earning a no-decision. Webster is 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA in four starts for the Pawtucket Red Sox this season, striking out 26 batters compared to just six walks.
