Red Sox put Woodland native Dustin Pedroia back on DL

BOSTON (AP) - Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has returned to the 15-day disabled with a strained right hamstring after the same injury caused him to miss 16 games before the All-Star break.

The team also recalled right-hander Steven Wright before Saturday's game against Detroit.

Pedroia originally hurt himself rounding first after a go-ahead single against Baltimore on June 24. He was out of the lineup for Friday's 2-1, 11-inning win over the Tigers.

The 2008 AL MVP is 1 for 22 in his last six games.
