The Red Sox will bring up outfielder Allen Craig on Tuesday when their roster expands, reports The Boston Globe. Craig was demoted earlier this season after hitting .135 with one home run and two RBI in 24 games. Along with Craig, the team also called up Ryan Cook, Noe Ramirez and Sandy Leon.
An injury that has sidelined Dustin Pedroia has motivated the Red Sox to promote veteran infielder Jemile Weeks from Triple-A Pawtucket, MLB.com has reported. They have also optioned reliever Noe Ramirez to the same team. Weeks is batting just .210 in 53 minor league games this season, but is expected to give Boston some flexibility in the infield.
The Red Sox have recalled right-handed reliever Noe Ramirez from Triple-A Pawtucket. Ramirez earned a loss in his only big-league appearance, which occurred earlier this season. He does own a 2.15 ERA in 29 1/3 innings of relief with Pawtucket, however. In a corresponding move, the Red Sox optioned first baseman Travis Shaw to Triple-A. Shaw has three hits in 15 at-bats this season for the Red Sox.
The Red Sox recalled pitcher Steven Wright from Triple-A Pawtucket. Wright is 2-3 with a 3.00 ERA in six starts at Pawtucket. He's 3-2 with a 4.15 ERA in previous stints with the Red Sox earlier this year. To make room for Wright, the Sox optioned Noe Ramirez to Triple-A. Ramirez made his MLB debut and took the loss in the tenth inning of Friday's game. "High number of innings out of the bullpen — we need a fresh arm and someone capable of going multiple innings," manager John Farrell said, per WEEI.
Red Sox reliever Noe Ramirez made his MLB debut against Houston after being called up earlier in the day. Ramirez entered in the tenth inning, hit the first batter he faced and gave up three singles in his inning of work. He gave up two earned and two unearned runs to take the loss.
