Club options right-handed pitcher William Cuevas to Pawtucket

Prior to tonight's game against the Texas Rangers, the Boston Red Sox recalled left-handed pitcher Jalen Beeks from Triple-A Pawtucket. To make room on the 25-man roster, the club optioned right-handed pitcher William Cuevas to Pawtucket following last night's game.
 
President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski made the announcement.
 
Beeks, who turns 25 years old today, made his major league debut on June 7 against the Detroit Tigers in his first big league stint, taking the loss after giving up six runs in 4.0 innings. Named a 2018 International League All-Star, the left-hander is 5-5 with a 3.05 ERA (28 ER/82.2 IP) in 15 starts for Pawtucket this season, most recently allowing three runs in 5.1 innings at Rochester on July 4. He ranks among International League leaders in strikeouts (2nd, 110), WHIP (2nd, 1.08), opponent batting average (4th, .214), and ERA (5th). Selected by Boston in the 12th round of the 2014 June Draft, Beeks was named 2017 Red Sox Minor League Pitcher of the Year and entered the 2018 season ranked by Baseball America as the organization's No. 11 prospect.
 
Cuevas, 27, has appeared in one game over two stints with Boston this season, allowing one run on two hits over 2.0 innings in the Red Sox' 11-4 win at Washington on July 3. The right-hander has made 15 starts for the PawSox this season, going 5-5 with a 3.65 ERA (35 ER/86.1 IP), 67 strikeouts, and 25 walks. Signed by Boston as an international free agent in 2008, the Venezuelan native made his major league debut with the Red Sox in 2016, appearing in three games in relief. He also pitched in one game for Detroit in 2017, but he re-signed with the Red Sox as a minor league free agent prior to the 2018 season. In 201 minor league outings (129 starts), he is 53-54 with a 3.78 ERA (386 ER/918.2 IP).
