The Boston Red Sox traded away a pair of pitchers on their active roster, and the players they got in return, at least for now, aren’t going to be with the big club.
So, Boston had a couple roster moves to make Saturday.
The Red Sox called up lefty Jeffrey Springs and righty Robert Stock from the alternate training site. They’ll replace the roster spots Brandon Workman and Heath Hembree occupied before being traded to the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday.
Springs cracked the Sox’s Opening Day roster and has made four appearances for Boston this season, his last one coming on August 10.
Stock has pitched once for Boston this season, allowing an unearned run over 1 1/3 innings on August 11.
In return for Hembree and Workman, the Red Sox got a pair of pitchers in Nick Pivetta and Connor Seabold.
The Red Sox will play Game 3 of their four-game set against the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday at 7:35 p.m. ET.
