After much hype and anticipation, Boston Red Sox fans will get their chance to see Brayan Bello take the mound at Fenway Park.

After Monday’s 6-4 win over the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, WooSox pitcher Bello got the news from manager Chad Tracy that he would start for the Red Sox on Wednesday night against the Tampa Bay Rays.

“I’m 100 percent excited,” Bello told reporters through translator and teammate Yolmer Sanchez, via MassLive’s Katie Morrison. “I just want to work hard and have a good game.”

Bello is the No. 1 pitching prospect in the Red Sox farm system, according to MLB’s top prospect list. He has been with Triple-A Worcester since May 14 after being called up from Double-A Portland, and has accumulated several impressive outings.

The right-hander is 6-2 with a 2.81 ERA in 51 1/3 innings with 72 strikeouts, and Bello has quickly progressed through the minors after starting 2021 in High-A Greenville.

“I’m excited, one of my goals was to make it to the big leagues, and I can’t wait for Wednesday.” Bello said, per Morrison.

On Monday, Red Sox manager Cora hinted at Bello’s call-up and admitted how fun it’s been to see the young pitchers perform well in the big leagues.

Bello provides some much-needed depth as Rich Hill, Michael Wacha, Nathan Eovaldi and Garrett Whitlock all are dealing with injuries.

All eyes will be on Bello on Wednesday as the future of the Red Sox will be on full display.
