BOSTON — Second baseman Dustin Pedroia of the Boston Red Sox was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with inflammation in his left knee.

The team also added reliever Addison Reed to the roster, one day after obtaining him in a trade with the New York Mets for three minor league pitchers.

Pedroia, who leads the Red Sox with a .307 batting average, is on the DL for the second time this season. He missed nine games in early June with a sprained left wrist.

ATHLETICS: Oakland released reliever John Axford.

The right-handed Axford pitched in 22 games for Oakland this season, going 0-1 with a 6.43 ERA.

WHITE SOX: Second baseman Yoan Moncada was relieved to learn he probably will miss just a few games after bruising his right knee in a frightening collision with outfielder Willy Garcia.

Moncada said he expects to be out two or three days. Garcia was put on the seven-day disabled list because of a concussion after Monday’s accident.

MARLINS: Manager Don Mattingly said right-hander Edinson Volquez and shortstop J.T. Riddle will miss the rest of the season because of injuries that may require surgery.

Volquez is sidelined by a left knee injury, and Riddle by a left shoulder injury.

NATIONALS: Minnesota had an off-day Monday in San Diego ahead of a two-game series against the Padres, so reliever Brandon Kintzler was sightseeing when he got word that he had been traded Washington.

“I was in the middle of feeding a rhino and a giraffe (at the zoo),” Kintzler told Casey Stern and Brad Lidge on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM.

“Have you ever fed a rhino before?”
