BOSTON, MA – The Boston Red Sox today announced the following roster moves:

  • Placed right-handed pitcher Tanner Houck and outfielder Jarren Duran on the Restricted List.
  • Recalled right-handed pitcher Connor Seabold from Triple-A Worcester.
  • Selected infielder Yolmer Sánchez to the active Major League roster from Worcester.

Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom made the announcement.

Houck, 25, tossed a scoreless inning in relief in Cleveland yesterday. Over his last 14 appearances, the right-hander has a 0.87 ERA (2 ER/20.2 IP) with 24 strikeouts and is six-for-six in save opportunities. In 22 appearances (four starts) for the Red Sox this season, Houck is 4-3 with a 3.42 ERA (18 ER/47.1 IP), six saves, a .238 opponent batting average and 47 strikeouts. 

Duran, 25, started in center field yesterday and went 2-for-5 with a double and a run scored. In 10 games since being recalled from Triple-A Worcester on June 15, the left-handed hitter is batting .333 (13-for-39) with a .908 OPS, six extra-base hits and three RBI. In 13 games for Boston this season, Duran is hitting .327 (17-for-52) with nine runs scored, five doubles, two triples and four stolen bases.

Seabold, 26, will start tonight’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays. The right-hander is 5-1 with a 2.09 ERA (12 ER/51.2 IP) in 11 starts for Worcester this season, also posting a 0.99 WHIP and limiting opponents to a .197 batting average.
