The Red Sox made a minor roster move in advance of the series finale against the Rangers on Wednesday.

Left-hander Jalen Beeks was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket and left-handed reliever Robby Scott was recalled as the corresponding move. Beeks, a starter, threw 2 1/3 innings of relief of Hector Velazquez on Tuesday night. That was just his second major league appearance.

Scott made his lone major league appearance of the season on June 19 in Minnesota, allowing two runs in just 1/3 of an inning. He has made 30 relief appearances for the PawSox this season, posting a 1.15 ERA with 48 strikeouts and a .183 opponent batting average. Scott did make the 2017 Opening Day roster.

He gives the bullpen some depth and a fresh arm.
