Red Sox replace Beeks with Haley

June 8th, 2018

BOSTON -- The Red Sox on Friday selected right-handed pitcher to the active Major League roster from Triple-A Pawtucket. To make room on the 25-man roster, the club optioned left-handed pitcher to Pawtucket following last night's game against the Tigers.


Haley, who will wear number 65, has made 11 starts for Pawtucket this season, going 3-6 with a 3.18 ERA. The 26-year-old right-hander has a 2.45 ERA since May 1, having allowed two runs or fewer in each of his seven outings in that time. Selected by the Red Sox in the sixth round of the 2012 MLB Draft, he spent his first five professional seasons (2012-16) in the Boston organization. Haley made the Twins' 2017 Opening Day roster and appeared in 10 Major League games -- the first of his career -- before being returned to the Red Sox on July 24 in accordance with rules of the Rule 5 Draft. He spent the remainder of the season in Pawtucket and attended 2018 Spring Training with Boston as a non-roster invitee.


Beeks, 24, made his Major League debut last night against Detroit, earning the loss after giving up six runs in four innings. He is the No. 15-ranked prospect of the Red Sox, according to MLB Pipeline.
