Red Sox recall Bradley, Workman from Triple-A
SEATTLE – The Boston Red Sox recalled outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. and right-hander Brandon Workman from Triple-A Pawtucket yesterday.
The Red Sox made the moves before last night’s game against Seattle. Bradley was in the starting lineup in center field and batting ninth as Jacoby Ellsbury and Shane Victorino continue to deal with nagging injuries. Bradley had appeared in 19 games with Boston and was hitting .297 at Pawtucket with seven homers in 45 games.
Boston placed right-handed reliever Alex Wilson on the 15-day disabled list with a thumb injury and optioned right-hander Jose De La Torre to Pawtucket.
Wilson threw 1 1∕ 3 innings of relief Monday night, but felt a popping sensation in his right thumb as he started his second inning of work. Wilson is headed back to Boston to be examined and Manager John Farrell said Wilson “could require some down time.”
