BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Red Sox placed left-hander Andrew Miller on the 15-day disabled list with a left foot sprain on Sunday, recalling Alfredo Aceves to take his spot on the 25-man roster.

Miller suffered a left foot sprain in the seventh inning of Saturday night’s loss to the Angels. He fell to the ground as he broke to cover home plate on a single up the middle, and though X-rays on the foot came back negative, Miller woke up Sunday with soreness.
