Zink to take injured Wakefield's spot

The Red Sox have placed RHP Tim Wakefield on the disabled list (right shoulder) and will promote knuckleballing RHP Charlie Zink from Pawtucket to start Tuesday against Texas. Zink, 28, is 13-4 with a 2.89 ERA for the PawSox in 2008. In 25 starts, Zink has allowed 49 earned runs on 129 hits (.228 BAA) over 152.1 innings pitched, striking out 94 and walking 43. He was selected as an International League All Star in last month's AAA All Star Game. As a 28-year-old, Zink is ineligible for the SoxProspects prospect rankings, but he is ranked #5 on the Post-Prospects list. Tuesday will be Zink's major league debut.
