Red Sox Pitcher To Miss Time

Boston Red Sox pitcher Michael Wacha has been placed on the 15-day injured list. 

When looking at how well Wacha has been pitching to start this season, his absence will be noticeable. In five starts thus far, he has a 3-0 record, 1.38 ERA, and 19 strikeouts. The Red Sox couldn't have expected any better of a start from him, but unfortunately for both him and the team, it has to be put on pause.

Once Wacha returns from his injury, it will be intriguing to see if he can maintain this form. With Boston having a disastrous 10-19 record, they need all the help they can get. Thus, here's to hoping that the veteran will be good to go shortly.
