Doug Mirabelli


Mirabelli missed his third straight game on Tuesday after spraining his left ankle in Boston's 3-2 win on Friday at Tampa Bay. Red Sox manager Terry Francona hopes to have him back on Thursday.


The Boston Red Sox reacquired Mirabelli Monday, dealing backup catcher Josh Bard, minor league reliever Cla Meredith and either cash or a player to be named to the San Diego Padres.


Mirabelli was removed from the Padres' starting lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta due to lower back stiffness. The 35-year-old catcher, just 2-for-8 in seven games this season, is listed as day-to-day.


On Sunday, the Boston Red Sox activated Mirabelli from the disabled list after a three-week stint for a sprained left wrist. The Red Sox' backup catcher returns with a .225 average (9-for-40) with two homer and six RBI.


Mirabelli, who went on the 15-day disabled list on May 20 for a sprained left wrist, will keep his wrist in a removable splint until at least Friday. The Boston backup catcher is batting .194 (7-for-36) with two homers this season.


Mirabelli, who went on the 15-day disabled list on May 20 for a sprained left wrist, continues to wear a splint on the wrist -- and he probably will for another week. The Red Sox' backup catcher is eligible to come off the DL on June 3, but it's quite possible that he won't be ready to return at that time.


Prior to the Red Sox game on Friday, reserve catcher Doug Mirabelli was placed on the 15-day disabled list. Mirabelli sprained his left wrist during a second inning at bat against the A's earlier in the week, and although he continued to play that game, he will now sit out at least two weeks. Shawn Wooten was called up from Triple A Pawtucket to replace Mirabelli on the roster.
