KIFI

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The Boston Red Sox have placed Kiké Hernández on the 10-day injured list with a right hip flexor strain. Boston made the move Wednesday night before facing the Los Angeles Angels. The versatile Hernández has been Boston’s leadoff hitter and starting center fielder lately, but he has been dogged by pain in his hip. The veteran is batting .209 with four homers and 24 RBIs this season. Hernández will be eligible to return June 18. Christian Arroyo moved into the leadoff slot for the Red Sox, and Jackie Bradley Jr. took over in center field.
