A Major League source has told Nick Cafardo (Boston Globe) that the Red Sox will place righthander Manny Delcarmen on the disabled list with a right forearm strain.

Cafardo did not know who would be called up to replace him on the roster for tomorrow night’s game against Baltimore, but the Globe is reporting the two most likely candidates are right-handers Robert Manuel and RHP Fernando Cabrera.

Delcarmen has faced 14 batters in his last three appearances, retiring only three and surrendering nine hits.
