Red Sox’s Nathan Eovaldi on injured list with elbow injury

The team said Saturday the pitcher has a loose body in his right elbow. He has had two Tommy John operations and also had surgery last year to remove loose bodies in the elbow.

Eovaldi is 0-0 with a 6.00 ERA in four starts. He allowed one unearned run over six innings in his last start Wednesday night against the New York Yankees.

Boston recalled left-hander Bobby Poyner from Pawtucket. He has appeared in five games with the Triple-A club this season.

Infielder Brock Holt, out with a scratched right cornea, will remain on the injured list after his rehab assignment with Pawtucket.
