The Boston Red Sox put hot-hitting outfielder Hunter Renfroe on the bereavement list Thursday.

The team recalled Jarren Duran from Triple-A Worcester. Duran, just sent down Tuesday, will start in center field for the BoSox on Thursday night against Minnesota.

Renfroe has slugged a major league-leading 10 home runs so far in August and is batting .258 with 25 home runs and 77 RBIs overall in his first season in Boston. Renfroe is allowed three to seven days, per MLB rules.

Duran has 86 at-bats with the big-league club and is hitting .221 with two home runs and 12 runs scored. He made his major league debut on July 17.
