According to multiple sources, right-hander Kyle Weiland will be called up to Boston to make his major league debut on Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles. Weiland will be added to the 40-man roster, as there was an open spot from the departure of Mike Cameron. A corresponding 25-man roster move has yet to be announced.
The 24-year-old Weiland was originally drafted by the Red Sox in the 3rd round of the 2008 amateur draft. In his fourth professional season, Weiland has compiled an 8-6 record with a 3.00 ERA and 99 strikeouts in 93.0 innings pitched for Triple-A Pawtucket this season. He has dazzled in his last two starts, both against the Rochester Red Wings (MIN), going 2-0 while allowing 2 runs, no walks and striking out 18 in 14.2 innings pitched.
