Sox recall Embree, send down Castro


According to Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald, the Red Sox have recalled Alan Embree from Triple-A Pawtucket. Embree has a clause in his contract that would have allowed him to opt out of his contract had the Red Sox not called him up by April 30th.

Just one day after calling up Fabio Castro from Pawtucket, the team sent him back down again in favor of the 40-year-old left hander.

Embree has made 8 appearances with the PawSox this season, posting a 3.68 ERA with 5 walks and 6 strikeouts in 7.1 innings. He is coming off of a week in which he appeared in 4 games and retired all 12 batters he faced.

The 25-year-old Castro returns to Pawtucket sporting an 0-1 record with a 8.10 ERA in 3 starts. In his 10.0 innings of work, he has issued 9 walks while striking out 13.

In order to make room for Embree on the 40-man roster, Kevin Frandsen has been designated for assignment.
