The Boston Red Sox have placed third baseman Rafael Devers on the 10-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation, the team announced on Thursday. The move is retroactive to Wednesday.

The club recalled infielder Tzu-Wei Lin from Triple-A to replace Devers on the active roster.

Devers has had a rough July after ending June on a particularly strong note, going 5-for-5 with a home run at Yankee Stadium. Since then, he's batting .138 with no home runs in eight games.

The 21-year-old isn't expected to miss much game action, especially with the All-Star Break next week. He's eligible to return on Saturday, July 21.

Through 89 games, Devers is hitting .241/.292/.424 with 14 home runs. The power has been there, but he's been inconsistent.

His replacement, Lin, has performed well in 46 games at Triple-A Pawtucket, batting .308/.360/.459 with five home runs in 201 plate appearances.
