      Red Sox bring up RP Heath Hembree, send pair to Triple-A

      The Red Sox have promoted right-hander Heath Hembree from Triple-A Pawtucket, per the Boston Globe. To make room for Hembree and Monday starting pitcher Matt Barnes they have optioned third baseman Garin Cecchini and reliever Ryan Cook. Hembree pitched briefly for Boston earlier in the year. He rebounded after allowing six runs in 1 1/3 innings in his first appearance to throw five shutout innings. Cook has been a mess with the Athletics and Red Sox in 2015. He has given up 17 hits in 6 1/3 innings and compiled a disturbing 19.89 ERA. Cecchini was just brought up Saturday and was hitless in four at-bats over the weekend.

Cecchini takes the roster spot of Steven Wright, who was placed on the 7-day concussion list on Friday.

      Red Sox's Garin Cecchini getting hot at the plate in Triple-A

      Red Sox minor leaguer Garrin Cecchini has had a rough 2015 season so far, batting .213 with six home runs in 73 games with Triple-A Pawtucket. But the former fourth-round draft pick may be turning a corner as the summer moves along. Cecchini is batting .325 over his last 10 games, including four straight multi-hit performances. "He's working through the things he needs to do to help himself get better. There's a lot of talent in there," said PawSox hitting coach Rich Gedman, per The Boston Globe. "He's swinging the bat much better. He looks a lot more confident at the plate. The results are starting to show. He's put a lot of hard work in." Cecchini had a brief 11-game stint with the Red Sox in 2014, recording eight hits in 31 at-bats, including a home run and three doubles.

      Garin Cecchini making great strides as an outfielder

      Triple-A Pawtucket manager Kevin Boles said Red Sox prospect Garin Cecchini has made great strides since moving to the outfield, per "He's done a nice job," Boles said. "Clean routes and first initial three steps have been pretty good. He's still learning as far as reading the ball off the bats. Slicing away, top spin, line drive, positioning with the center fielder, engaging that way. "He's taken to it and he's kept things in order from a throwing standpoint and doing some game management, and that's just through experience. That's the only way you can learn that, getting rehearsal, rehearsing in practice and making sure that it translates into the game, and I think it's something that is going to be a process. The first initial read that we've seen has been pretty impressive."
