Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - The Boston Red Sox optioned pitchers Alfredo
Aceves and Allen Webster to Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday.
Both pitchers appeared in Boston's 11-8 victory over the Seattle Mariners on
Tuesday. Webster started for the Red Sox and was shelled for seven runs on six
hits and two walks in just 2 1/3 frames before Aceves entered from the bullpen
and recorded the final two outs in the third inning.
Over six starts for the Red Sox, Webster owns a 1-2 record with a 9.57 earned
run average, while Aceves is 4-1 with a 4.86 ERA over 11 games, including six
starts, with the BoSox this season.
To replace both hurlers on the roster, the Red Sox recalled pitchers Pedro
Beato and Steven Wright from Triple-A Pawtucket.
Beato has appeared in three games with Boston this season and hasn't given
up a run while scattering three hits over three innings of relief work.
Wright, 28, made his major league debut with the Red Sox on April 23 and was
tagged for five runs on six hits and four walks over 3 2/3 frames of relief
work in a 13-0 loss to Oakland.
