Godley will start on short rest Wednesday against the Rays, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. The 30-year-old delivered four scoreless frames during Saturday's start, and he'll be asked to start on three days rest his next time out with the Red Sox still scrambling with the rotation. Godley has a 3.97 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 11:4 K:BB through 11.1 innings this season.

The 30-year-old righty has a 3.97 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with 11 strikeouts in 11.1 innings this season. He'll likely keep working up to a starter's workload in his next appearance, which is expected to be Thursday versus the Rays.
Godley (0-1) took the loss Saturday against the Yankees after allowing five runs on six hits over 3.1 innings. He had one strikeouts and two walks.

Godley reached 69 pitches Saturday and should continue ramping up toward a full starting workload. He lines up to next take the mound next weekend versus the Blue Jays.
Godley will start Saturday's game against the Yankees, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. The veteran right-hander made his Boston debut Monday and allowed only four hits while recording seven strikeouts over four scoreless innings, and he'll remain on the five-day schedule for Saturday. Godley is unlikely to have a traditional starter's workload his next few starts after throwing 53 pitches during Monday's outing, but he should continue ramping up his pitch count.
Godley has a chance to join Boston's rotation after impressing in his debut outing Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. He tossed four shutout innings as the primary pitcher against the Mets, allowing four hits with zero walks and seven strikeouts. Given how decimated Boston's rotation is, Godley clearly earned a turn every fifth day, it's just a matter of whether he continues to be used as a primary pitcher or gets deployed like a traditional starter. His next appearance figures to be Saturday in Yankee Stadium.
