Scott, 28, made his lone major league appearance of the season on June 19 at Minnesota, allowing two runs in 0.1 innings pitched. He has made 30 relief appearances for the PawSox this season, posting a 1.15 ERA (4 ER/31.1 IP) with 48 strikeouts, a 0.99 WHIP, and a .183 opponent batting average.

Twenty-six of his 30 appearances have been scoreless, including each of his last 11. Signed by the Red Sox as a non-drafted free agent in 2011, Scott is 3-2 with a 3.64 ERA (17 ER/42.0 IP) in 65 career major league relief appearances (2016-18), having made his first career Opening Day roster with Boston in 2017.

Beeks, 25, made his second career major league appearance last night against the Rangers, allowing three earned runs over 2.1 relief innings. He suffered the loss in his big league debut on June 7 against the Detroit Tigers, surrendering six runs in 4.0 frames.
