The Red Sox will call up Rubby De La Rosa to start Wednesday, John Farrell announced after Tuesday's game. In a corresponding move, Brandon Workman has been optioned to Pawtucket. In five starts in Boston this season, De La Rosa has posted a 2-2 record with a 2.51 ERA and 1.02 WHIP. In his last two starts on June 16 and June 21, he surrendered just five hits and one run over 14 innings. Workman went seven innings in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox, allowing five runs (three earned) on eight hits while striking out five and walking two. After conceding just 10 earned runs over his first five starts of the season, Workman has now given up 12 over his last three. "It's not ideal," Workman said about getting sent down. "It's not what I was hoping to hear after the game. It's part of it. I just have to keep getting my work in, keep getting better."
