Bobby Kielty is expected be on the major league roster for tomorrow’s game, meaning that the Sox will play tonight’s game short two bench players: Cash, who will be flying in on the 6:35 flight and Kielty, whose spot is currently occupied by Buchholz.
Hey guys, quick check in from the game – Wily Mo Pena has been traded to the Nationals for a player to be named later.
Mirabelli was injured scoring a run and hobbled off the field. Jason Varitek came in to replace him and instant speculation has AA catcher Dusty Brown being recalled. Brown has a .816 OPS for Portland and his calling card is his excellent defense and play-calling skills.
