The Red Sox placed third baseman Will Middlebrooks and outfielder Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list, the team announced Friday.

Infielder Jose Iglesias and pitcher Alfredo Aceves were called up from Triple A Pawtucket, and Iglesias will start tonight's game vs. the Indians at third base.

Iglesias, who started the season as the Red Sox' shortstop while Stephen Drew was on the disabled list, had been practicing at third and second base in anticipation of a potential utility role in Boston. Iglesias played third for Pawtucket in a game Tuesday.

Middlebrooks left Thursday's game because of back spasms. Victorino, whose move to the DL was retroactive to Tuesday, has a left hamstring injury. Victorino left Monday's game in the sixth inning and missed the last three.
