One day after he threw 2 1/3 innings of relief and logged 38 pitches, right-hander Alex Wilson was sent back to Triple-A Pawtucket, according to multiple sources. With the Sox in need of long relievers on their staff at a time when their rotation is skewing young, the team is calling up knuckleballer Steven Wright, who in 11 starts this year in Pawtucket is 5-2 with a 2.80 ERA. Wright has shown an impressive ability to throw strikes with his signature pitch, punching out 7.1 and walking just 1.9 batters per nine innings.
