With a rotation spot now available following today’s trade of Jake Peavy, the Red Sox will call up right-handed pitcher Allen Webster from Triple-A to start on Sunday in Tampa against the Rays, WEEI.com’s Alex Speier reports. It will be his first outing in the big leagues this season.
Webster, 24, made his major league debut on April 21 last year and made intermittent starts throughout the season. Overall, he finished with an ugly 8.60 ERA in 30 1/3 innings spanning seven starts and one relief appearance. His numbers at Triple-A Pawtucket this season have been pretty good — he has a 3.10 ERA with a 100/44 K/BB ratio in 122 innings.
