The Boston Red Sox placed left fielder Masataka Yoshida on the 10-day injured list on Wednesday due to a left thumb strain.

The move is retroactive to Monday.

Yoshida, 30, has hit .275 with two home runs and 11 RBIs through 24 games this season. He is in his second season with Boston after finishing sixth in American League Rookie of the Year voting in 2023.

Injuries have decimated the Red Sox this year, and they currently have 14 players on the IL. Among them are first baseman Triston Casas, shortstop Trevor Story and right-handers Brayan Bello, Nick Pivetta, Garrett Whitlock and Liam Hendriks.

In another move on Wednesday, Boston agreed to a one-year deal with free-agent first baseman Dominic Smith.

Smith, 28, has yet to make his season debut. He hit .254 with 12 homers and 46 RBIs in 153 games with the Washington Nationals last year.

Right-hander Vladimir Gutierrez was designated for assignment. He didn’t make a single appearance with the Red Sox.
