Red Sox RHP Velázquez pitches once, back on injured list

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Boston Red Sox have put right-hander Hector Velazquez on the 10-day injured list, a day after a recurrence of back trouble that sidelined him a few weeks ago.

Velazquez has a low back strain, and the Red Sox made the move before playing at Minnesota on Wednesday night. Righty Josh Smith was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket.

The 30-year-old Velazquez gave up one run in four innings during Tuesday night's 4-3 loss in 17 innings to the Twins. It was his first game since being activated from the injured list Monday - he'd been out since May 30 with a low back strain.
