ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Red Sox left fielder Chris Young is sore and on the disabled list because of a strained right hamstring, but manager John Farrell said Friday that the injury isn’t as bad as the team initially feared.

Young pulled up grabbing his leg after rounding first base in the second inning of Boston’s win over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday. He had to be helped off the field and went on the 15-day DL after the game.

Farrell said Friday that Young has some swelling. But the manager said the encouraging news is that Young’s “range of motion is not too bad at this point.”

Bryce Brentz was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket and against Texas became the fifth different Boston player to start in left field this season.
