Pauley gets call to Boston


Right-hander David Pauley will make his major league debut for the Red Sox against Toronto on Wednesday in the place of the injured David Wells. Pauley, 22, will make the jump from Portland to Boston having never pitched above Double-A. He did make three spring training starts with Boston in 2006, where he failed to impress. However, he has been quite impressive so far this year in the Eastern League, going 2-3 with a 2.39 ERA, with 47 strikeouts and just 17 walks. Pauley throws a plus sinkerball along with a low 90s fastball, a decent curveball and a good change. He was acquired from San Diego in December 2004 along with Jay Payton, Ramon Vazquez, and cash for Dave Roberts. Boston placed Wells on the 15-day DL to make room for Pauley on the 25-man roster.

Murphy, Hertzler summoned to Pawtucket


In one of the first bold moves of the season, the Red Sox organization promoted two top prospects to Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday. Barry Hertzler and David Murphy were summoned to the PawSox Friday morning after strong early-season campaigns in Double-A Portland. Hertzler, an East Providence, RI native and lifelong Red Sox fan, had posted a 1.13 ERA in 24 innings out of the bullpen for the Sea Dogs during the first two months of the 2006 season. Murphy, Boston's first round pick in 2003 (and Theo Epstein's first draft pick as general manager), was batting .280 while chipping in 3 home runs and 24 RBIs for Portland at the time of his call-up. Murphy will take over the centerfield reigns in Pawtucket, while Hertzler is expected to serve as the long reliever/setup man out of the PawSox 'pen.
