First baseman Mitch Moreland's return to the Red Sox was a short one, as the team placed him on the 10-day injured list Saturday after he strained his right quad in his first game back Friday.

The Red Sox activated Moreland prior to their loss to the Rays on Friday. He started the game but left after the sixth inning with the quad injury.

Moreland had previously been out since May 26 with a low back strain.
