The Red Sox have called up RHP, Rubby De La Rosa, and optioned Alex Wilson to Pawtucket. De La Rosa came over from LA in the massive trade last August and has been pitching fairly well in Pawtucket. Some call Rubby Carlos De La Rosa the best pitching prospect in the Sox system, and he has looked it.
In 11 starts with Pawtucket, Rubby is 0-1, with a 3.29 ERA. RDLR has 38 K's in 38.1 innings of work...not too shabby. He was slated to start today for Pawtucket, so he is well rested and can help this very tired bullpen.
Alex Wilson pitched well for most of his outing last night, but naturally became tired. He gave the 'pen some much needed relief, and Rubby will be giving Wilson some much needed relief.
I can't wait to see how he performs for Boston in the big-leagues.
