BOSTON (CBS) – The news just keeps getting worse for Red Sox reliever Joel Hanrahan.

The Red Sox placed Hanrahan on the 60-day disabled list on Thursday as he gets set to visit with the famous Dr. James Andrews on Friday. A source tells CSNNE’s Sean McAdam that surgery is “definitely a possibility” for the Boston reliever.

The Red Sox placed Hanrahan on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday with a right forearm strain — his second trip to the DL this season. He also missed 15 games from April 14-29 with a right hamstring strain.

The 31-year-old made three appearances after 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.

Righthander Jose De La Torre will be called up to take Hanrahan’s spot on the 40-man roster. The 27-year-old has never pitched in a major league game, but has 17 strikeouts in 17.1 innings for the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox this season, allowing three runs off five hits and 10 walks.

To make room for De La Torre on the 25-man roster, Boston optioned pitcher Allen Webster back to Pawtucket.
