Your faithful Globe correspondent was having difficulty making connections from the clubhouse, but as you've ascertained by now, Daisuke Matsuzaka was placed on the 15 day disabled list with a minor rotator cuff strain. The Sox purchased the contract of infielder-outfielder Jeff Bailey, who is here and could see action this weekend, when the Sox face lefties Garrett Olson and Brian Burres.

The Sox don't need a starter until Tuesday; Justin Masterson, who made his Triple A debut last night and allowed one earned run in six innings, figures to get the call.

J.D. Drew was a scratch against Orioles starter Daniel Cabrera tonight. Manager Terry Francona said Drew had vertigo; Coco Crisp will be in center and Jacoby Ellsbury in right.

The lineups:

Red Sox

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. David Ortiz, DH
4. Manny Ramirez, LF
5. Mike Lowell, 3B
6. Kevin Youkilis, 1B
7. Jason Varitek, C
8. Coco Crisp, CF
9. Alex Cora, SS
--Josh Beckett (5-4, 4.43), SP

Orioles

1. Brian Roberts, 2B
2. Melvin Mora, 3B
3. Nick Markakis, RF
4. Aubrey Huff, DH
5. Kevin Millar, 1B
6. Luke Scott, LF
7. Ramon Hernandez, C
8. Adam Jones, CF
9. Freddie Bynum, SS
-- Daniel Cabrera (5-1, 3.70), SP
