Boston pitcher David Wells went on the disabled list Tuesday and could be sidelined for more than a month after spraining his right foot.
Red Sox Manager Terry Francona said the 41-year-old left-hander won't need surgery for the injury, sustained in the fourth inning of Monday night's 8-4 loss to Baltimore. Instead, Wells will rest and then rehabilitate the foot.
Boston recalled left-hander Lenny DiNardo from triple-A Pawtucket to take Wells' roster spot.
Francona said Wells would be sidelined for up to six weeks, but team physician Thomas Gill said in a statement, "There is no exact time frame for his return."
Left-hander John Halama will take Wells' spot in the rotation.
Detroit Tiger outfielder Magglio Ordonez will be sidelined for at least two months after hernia surgery.
Ordonez, who signed a $75-million, five-year contract with Detroit during the off-season, will be operated on by Dr. Bill Meyers today in Philadelphia.
