Mark Wagner promoted to Pawtucket

Catcher Mark Wagner has been promoted to the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox and will join the team on Sunday, Kevin Thomas of the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram has reported. After a down year in 2008, Wagner has enjoyed great success at the plate this season, hitting .301 with 18 doubles, 3 home runs, and 28 walks, posting a .410 on-base percentage and .477 slugging percentage. Wagner is also considered to have good defensive skills behind the plate, with the potential to be an excellent defensive catcher in the Majors.

The counter-move to Wagner's promotion is the demotion of John Otness from Pawtucket to Portland. Otness will split time behind the plate with Juan Apodaca, much as the two did when Wagner missed two weeks due to injury in late April/early May.
