Having a hard time keeping track of all of the Red Sox’ recent roster moves? You’re not alone.
The Red Sox announced two more moves Wednesday as they continue to shake up their roster based on team needs. Allen Webster and Alfredo Aceves have been optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket, while Steven Wright and Pedro Beato have been recalled.
Webster was lit up in Seattle on Tuesday. He surrendered seven runs on six hits in 2 1/3 innings, elevating his season ERA to 9.57 (28 earned runs in 26 1/3 innings) over six starts.
Aceves, who has been up and down between Boston and Pawtucket all season, pitched two thirds of an inning Tuesday and allowed one hit. He is 4-1 with a 4.86 ERA in 11 games (six starts) with the Red Sox this season.
Wright rejoins the Red Sox for his second big-league stint of 2013. The 28-year-old made his major league debut for Boston on April 23. He is 4-5 with a 3.81 ERA in 16 starts with Pawtucket this season, and he currently holds a 17 2/3 scoreless inning streak for the PawSox.
Beato, 28, joins Boston for the third time this season. He has made three scoreless relief appearances with the Red Sox, and he is 5-3 with a 2.18 ERA in 25 games with the PawSox.
Manager John Farrell indicated Wednesday that Wright and the recently called up Brandon Workman are candidates to start Sunday’s game in Oakland.
