ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Red Sox won't be receiving reinforcements from Pawtucket until they return home from their road trip on Friday.
The Pawtucket Times has reported that Danny Valencia and Pedro Beato will be called up to Boston. Che-Hsuan Lin and Zach Stewart are other options from the 40-man roster to be promoted.
Valencia went 1-for-8 in four games with the Red Sox in August. Beato has made one appearance with Boston, picking up a win on August 26.
With 12 men already in the bullpen, the Red Sox will not recall either Alex Wilson or Josh Fields -- neither of whom is on the 40-man roster.
Assistant general manager Mike Hazen said that doesn't mean the organization isn't happy with how the two have performed, especially of late.
"It's unfortunate, but it is what it is. We talked to those guys last night and they understood," Hazen said. "It's a little circumstantial that they don't get called up. But they had great years."
