The move to the bullpen certainly has paid off for right-hander Pat Light. A 2012 first-round pick out of Monmouth University, Light was moved to the bullpen to open the year with Double-A Portland where he excelled, going 1-1 with a 2.43 ERA in 29 2/3 innings, including 32 strikeouts to 11 walks. Now, according to a source, Light has been promoted to Triple-A Pawtucket. He's been exceptional of late, posting an 0.83 ERA in his last 17 appearances and had a 12 2/3 scoreless innings streak snapped in his last outing. The news was first reported by the Boston Globe's Alex Speier. Light could be a potential closer, as a pitcher who throws in the high 90s and his former Cape Cod League manager said he was "born to close." For more Red Sox news, visit
