Clayton Mortensen Gets Special One-Day Appearance as Red Sox Stock Up for Doubleheader (Video)

Doubleheaders used to be the norm in professional baseball, but nowadays they are a rare occasion — more of a way to make up for rainouts.

With doubleheaders throwing a wrench in the usual plans of calling up guys and dealing with injuries, managers get a boost from special doubleheader call-up rules. Bobby Valentine is taking advantage of those rules on Saturday, tapping Clayton Mortensen for some extra work.

The Boston Globe's Peter Abraham explains the rule and how Mortensen will help out on Red Sox GameDay Live Presented by UNO.
